    Rossi Ranch Hand

    This is essentially a repost from MGO... I figured I'd bring the discussion here too, cause if these are legal in Michigan, I'll be strapping one to my leg in a drop leg holster during a picnic for sure.

    Does anyone know anything about the Rossi Ranch Hand?

    I just discovered a little bit about it after reading up on the Kel-Tec PMR-30. It's not out yet, but damn it looks nice.

    What the ranch hand is, is a cut down version of a lever action rifle and sold as a pistol (similar to what you'd see in Zombieland)

    I can't find a ton of information about it, however is something like this legal in Michigan to own, or would this technically be considered an SBR? It shoots .357, .44 Magnum, and .45 Colt respectively. If I'm not mistaken, since the manufacturer is selling it that short and as a pistol, it could in fact be owned, no? Sorry I'm not up on my gun laws when it comes to rifles.

    its a remake of a mares leg...
    thats all.
    if it is a pistol then it is legal in MI
    ill look into it and let you know

    On a side note
    I wouldnt count on it as a self defense gun I would use it for backpacking and protection against animals
    carrying one of these would be like carrying a 10/22 only with a larger bullet.
    pointless.

    Here's a thread from leatherworker.net that shows a replica of the holster used in the show.

    Good show and fun gun!
    Anything I post may be my opinion and not the law... you are responsible to do your own verification.

    Blackstone (1753-1765) maintains that "the law holds that it is better that ten guilty persons escape than that one innocent suffer."
