New Ranch Owner

Postby mtnstryder » 30 Dec 2017 18

Hello and Happy New Year to all Rifleman every where
I’ve ben a member of this forum for 2 years now.I joined because I wanted to buy a 92 in 454 to match my BFR
That never happened and I sold 2 motorcycles and 3 guns to buy a Big Horn Armory 460 model 90.
I still want a 92 in 357 I can hope,But today I bought my first Rossie a Ranch Hand 44mag.It was a closing for good sale at a long time favorite gun store.The Ranch Hand had been setting in the case kind of hard to see for a long time brand new for $575.00. I I offered $375.00 and here it is.I’ve read every post on the 92 now I have to read up on the Ranch Hand.I have learned a lot on here thank you.
or here it is not I have tried I just can’t post a photo.

Yep, enjoy the RH. As long as you dont expect too much practicality out of it youll like it

Now abour your 90A, how is it? Those BHA carbines are pricey but man are they nice

Congrats!! That was a great deal. I paid $475 for mine a couple of months ago.

I think that you'll find they are a real hoot to shoot! If it's like most, it will probably shoot tremendously high at close range. For your first rounds, you may want to take a low hold with the sights. For mine, I aim at the bottom of the paper to hit near the center of the target.

Have fun!!!

I wont get a chance to shoot the Ranch Hand for awhile yet its -28 here in Vermont and not going to warm up anytime soon.
The Model 90 is a great gun but not smooth at all.I will be sending it back for some needed work.
