Congrats on the new toy but...
I started this post and lost it. My apologies if it should post twice.
The Ranch Hand I ordered is in. My LGS called yesterday. I picked it up today.
When my wife came home from work she said, "sure is a pretty gun".
Practical? Probably not. Fun? I think yes.
Hopefully, a range report next Saturday.
Unfortunately I won't get to the range untilnext Saturday.
Congrats on the new toy but...

About me - I take very little seriously especially myself.
Ignorance is the lack of knowledge. Stupid is the refusal to do anything about it.
I agree with btleslie,
I'll work on pics this weekend. Spoke to my son-in-law Friday night who said the range was dry. So early this morning we figured a quick run to the range for about an hour. The grandsons got here at 0830 and the rain started falling at 0835. We got about 2 inches. Though we were disappointed about no range time we do NEED the rain during this time of draught.
Soooo, I came up with this gret idea. Since every time I get a new gun and want to go to the range it rains. Since I can't afford another new gun anyone wanting rain is welcome to contribute to the cause.
I have to work tonight but tomorrow I'll try getting some pictures. It is pretty. It's in .38 Spl/.357Mag.
My wife is anxious to shoot it. She had a stroke many years back and finds the semi-auto difficult to use. Revolvers she doesn't have as great a difficulty. But she thinks she'll do much better with a two had hold on the Ranch Hand. Range time will tell for sure.

You guys are relentless. Hopefully the images will show. The little tag is a reminder to the dealer that this is a handgun.
Heck yes, that looks like fun! Enjoy!

'I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around [the banks] will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered. The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs.' Thomas Jefferson
That looks awesome! Congrats and thanks!
I WANT ONE! That looks awesome.
This thread is half complete! I want range report with pictures of of accuracy and such!
I love the way it looks but a good handgun would do the same thing. It is unique and if I had the money I would buy one just to have it. Congrats
