I like guns that are different...
A Mares Leg copy..old cowboy TV show Wanted Dead or Alive. There are other manufactures like Puma (Chiappa) and a US assembler JB Custom using Puma recievers that are $1000 to $1300. Then I found the Rossi for $408. ***. I did get it in 44 Mag...outside of the box of what I buy (45C) but I do have several in pistols in it...3, a Ruger, Desert eagle and a SSA Clone to be exact Just have to pick up a couple hundred more rounds. Hell I'll never shoot it anyway.
Roger, that pps-43c is nice... Did you SBR it? Looks like a folding stock attached to the top?
I'm working on putting aside money for a ranch hand in .38/.357 and I can't wait :D

Great write up M2. I like unusual guns and I have nost of them.
The PPS-42C is produced as a pistol in Poland and exported in that way. The stock is welded and deactivated. It is in 7362 X 25, Neat all the new stuff coming out. I have a Colefire Sterling pistol of the same caliber.

I've shot mine a few more times, including yesterday.
Mostly I'm just shooting it from the hip.
Surprisingly you can quickly get right good with the gun, even while shooting one handed.
From a little over 7 yards, and while moving, I now seldom missed a steel popper target.
And the most important thing is the gun is a lot of fun to shoot.:)

Too cool. My dad and I both have wanted one of these for quite some time. I usually see 'em for 1k and up though. I'll have to look into the Rossi for sure.

I've had my eye on the Rossi Ranch Hand since August or September.
I'd like to get one in 45LC. Where is the best place to pick one up? Alot of the ones are Gunbroker are priced alittle high....

Thats one heck of a nice range you have there.
Thanks, I enjoy it. It's 115 yards. It's a work in progress so I have to have everything moveable so I can get the tractor on the range.
