Rossi Ranch hand..
« on: August 27, 2013, 09:29:45 PM »
So I welcome the new gun counter at the Hinton Home Hardware and I must say they have a good selection for a new place and the owner(forgot his name) is a great guy to talk too. :)

Anyways....we had a good chat and he showed me a Ranch hand in .40 caliber but...

What the heck are they good for? I mean they look like a fun little gun but really?

What are you going to use this for?

Handy little tool to pack in bear country.. Nice to have in a back pack while working the streams with a fly rod,, you know for when a 800 pound bear bluff charges you lol.. Or in a tree stand while spring bear hunting.. And what the heck it's a gun they made it,, we must need it..

I have one in .44 rem. Magnum.  The sights they come with are not much good so I replaced front and rear.  I have always wanted to hunt with a handgun and so I packed it a few times last fall when I figured I had a good spot to take a supplemental doe.  Never got a chance.  This year I will put in more effort with it.

They are not a handgun and they are not a rifle.

I still don't see the attraction other than a making noise in a gravel pit.

Not that this is a bad thing.. ;)

Some people want to hunt with a .300 win. mag. and some would rather hunt with their fathers old 30/30.

Some people want to hunt with a compound bow and some prefer a traditional long bow.

Some people want to hunt with an inline , scoped muzzleloader and some want to use a flint lock and a round ball.

Some people want to hunt with a Rossi Ranch Hand.


My ranch hand came in a box that says "This Is A Handgun"right on the box.  You don't put it to your shoulder to shoot it and you carry it in a holster on your hip, it is chambered in "handgun type " cartridges.

The "Canadian firearms experts" have classified it as "not a handgun" but I have never thought they were too bright.

Well Sonny, if you don't want the handgun cartridges you could always try a bfr:    Yeeowch!


Oh, by the way, darn you guys!  Now I"m wondering how much a ranchhand costs!   ;)

Wow, you really are scared of bears, aren't you?  Don't worry walleyes, if you ever actually get far enough into bear country to see a grizzly in the wild, he probably won't want to eat you anyway, not with all that poop in your pants. lololol

Rath of the OP, I like that.

I doubt Walleyes is all that scared of bears anyways.  He is more like the ol' bear of the woods himself.... ;)
Probably has walked more miles in the bush than a lot of bears too.

Sonny, what was the price tag on that overgrown handgun?
I think I see a rip in the social fabric, Brother can you spare some ammo?

They want $650 for the ranch hand and they also have a Marlin guide gun .45-70 for the same price.

Think I'd take the guide gun over the ranch hand anyday.
