    Re: RANCH HAND

    I'd love one for a fun, "truck gun". Woody Harrelson using it in Zombieland is epically funny.

    Thats one funny movie !! It will make you laugh out loud! And the rules to live by are hysterical.

    Re: RANCH HAND

    Will the stocks for the full size lever actions fit this gun? Might be interesting to have a full size stock and a 12" barrel. Not sure if it would be legal like that.

    I believe that would turn that pistol into a short barrelled rifle under the National Firearms Act.

    No doubt about it; it would be a short barreled rifle and require the special fee/tax.

    The closest LGS to me is the only one that has them in my area so far. Trouble is the jerks are pricing it just under the Puma price point. I'm hoping they get them into more production but if they are at this sorry price point for too long it could hurt sales and cause a slow down in production. It's pretty hard to justify a "fun gun" when I can buy the real rifle version for less money. Ranch Hand may not have been the most well thought out name but I could care less what they call it, it just screams fun at the range to me. I've got a Blackhawk in .45 Colt and would love to have a Ranch Hand to take with me that shared the same ammo. Heck, if the action proves to be strong enough it might make a great handy hunting gun with the longer barrel for better powder burn and the longer sight radius for better aim. And this part is purely my personal opinion but I see way more uses for the Ranch Hand than I do a Judge. I don't mean to Judge bash but I have read all kinds of bashing of the lever action handgun idea and I just flat out don't agree. If anything, I think our convoluted gun laws keep guns like this from being popular just by keeping them out of people's hands. Like a poster above stated I think these would be one bang up fine short rifle, but hold on, that goes all red tape on you. I think it follows the same logic as going from a regular length rifle to a carbine length. Cut that carbine down some more and you would have one really light weight, easy to pack, handy as heck woods rifle. Bump this thing up to chamber a .454 and I bet that would be one awesome close in hunting weapon. I have a Winchester 1892 that was rebarreled to .357 and every time I shoot it I think how much handier it would be if it was just as long as the half magazine tube and the butt was just an inch or two shorter. Maybe someday we will come to our senses and get rid of all the rules and regulations that are doing us no good. But until then I will make do with a Ranch Hand if I can ever find one for close to MSRP locally. This is one that will have me break my Made in the USA buying policy only since we don't offer anything even close.

    I saw a few of them at the last gun show... but as smoke said... I can't think of a practical use other than you would just like to have one. They do look interesting enough though.
