I believe the name of that show was "The Rifleman". Frontier Trading Post in Hatfield, AR has one in stock. 479-216-1994.It is also called a "Mares Leg". Steve McQueen used a similar "pistol" on some old western TV show. I cannot remember the name of the show.
It would be cool to have on your UTV for riding around on your ranch. You could solve a lot of problems with one. That is for sure.
No, the barrel is too long to hunt in Z4/Z5:Since it's technically a handgun in a straight walled pistol cartridge, I guess it would be legal in zone 4 and 5?
The Ranch Hand has a barrel that's 12".In deer zones 4, 4B, 5 and 5B, modern guns are restricted to:
shotguns (.410 or larger) with slugs; or
pistols having barrels 4 to 10 inches long, chambered for straight-wall centerfire cartridges and using lead, lead allowy, soft nose or hollow point bullets .30 caliber or larger.
