    Finally got it! $525 out the door through Fred Meyer.

    I had a quote for $429, but the MSRP went up, so prices went up. That was lame, but still happy to finally have one. They said it would be 3 months, but it only took one.

    Feels like solid construction, launches snap caps about 12 feet when I cycle them. I think it will be a good gun.

    Can't wait to try it out.

    Hoping I get a chance to try it out this weekend. I'll post pics and range report when I do shoot it. I tried taking a few but the lighting in my apartment is bad, they turned out pretty terrible.

    I got to shoot a few rounds thru one back in July. It was brand new and pretty stiff yet but I'm sure it will loosen up.

    We had a hard time trying to figure out just how to hold it. The kick is suprisingly low so that isn't an issue. The stock is too short to place against the shoulder, it can be fired one handed but it's kinda heavy for that..

    There were five of us shooting two of them. Some thought it was a good hip fire type gun...

    It is a nice size for packing around in the woods, etc. Rossi has been making some interesting firearms lately. I think the .410/.45 revolver/shotgun looks promising....

    I think the safety might not work. I won't know for sure until I can test it with a live round, but the hammer still slams shut when the trigger is pulled with a snap cap loaded in on safe mode.

    Maybe its a safety that doesn't stop the hammer from functioning but just keeps it from firing?

    Never seen one like that. A scary one if that's the case. Sure to make ya jump if you put the safety on, accidentally hit the trigger and hear that hammer slam shut...

    That's the standard safety on the Winchester '94 (which imho the RanchHhand is somewhat a copy of). it's calle a hammer block safety, and all it does is block the hammer fro9m striking the firing pin.
    ...my third carry piece was a U.S. Army P-1Alpha Pershing Missile with a XXX kt. thermonuclear warhead. I never got a chance to use that one either.
