I just bought a Rossi Ranch Hand and have not been able to get to a range yet. I’m chomping at the bit to try it out. Useless? Maybe, but I’ve always wanted a “canoe gun” or “blanket gun” like the ones made by by North Star West and the Ranch Hand is kind of a modern version of this. It’ll definitely go hiking with me if I can ever get out of the ever urbanizing Greenville County and into some real woods. Bah! I should have moved more rural – damn my love of fine restaurants!
