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