just wanted to drop a few thoughts on the rossi ranch hand (technically a hand gun). first, i just think the lever action mare's leg is such a cool gun. i have a love for lever actions, so i am biased for sure. certainly not the most useful gun around, but imo more than a novelty. its size and power would make it a great little backpack or truck gun. i'll remind all posters that this is NOT a professional review, just some thoughts from an owner of the firearm. this review is all based on my opinions and experiences. here's my ranch hand (next to my marlin).
