Mare's leg
 
I love the look and idea of it though it has no use other than fun! Your experiences? I am on the fence about buying one.

Sort of like a little redhead secetary I once met- never learned how to type.

Looks like fun- but pretty useless.:D

Too bad for you, I can think of lots of uses for a pretty little redhead ;)

Have you fired one?

I'm seeing these things everywhere lately. I can't imagine actually firing one. How would you hold it? It's not a rifle, and it's not a pistol. Other than buying one "just to have", I don't know what you would do with it. Unless you were trying to emulate Josh Randolph on "Wanted Dead Or Alive".

From what little I have seen, the sights are far enough forward that a smaller shooter can actually shoulder it. SBR without the stamp, assuming you have short arms anyway.

rossi ranch hand

i have a rossi ranch hand in 357/38. and i will admit the main use for this gun is to shoot it and look cool.......:D

i have, however, been surprised by the accuracy, which is as good as any pistol i have owned (y'all know it is technically a pistol, right?)

as for shooting it....if you want accuracy, the only way is to hold it like a rifle without using your shoulder. in other words, get a cheek weld on the side of the stock, to look look down the sights....it is very accurate when fired this way....but it looks much cooler to fire from the hip! :p

uses....it could make a very compact truck, rv, or backpack gun.

but mostly, its just a lot of fun. imo, any gun not used for hunting or carry (leo, military, conceal), is a gun just for fun anyway. if you're just punching paper or shooting cans with a gun....the mare's leg is as good as any other gun.....and probably cooler :cool:

i did a review on mine in the general handgun forum.

this useless gun made a big resurgence in the last year or so following it airing as a major bit on the sons of guns show on one episode. since then its all over the place.

if you like it fine, nothing wrong with that. i just think its a useless concept
