Indeed, there is some fine shooting in this thread and in this most recent match.

I gave it a whirl Friday, and I’ll just say that my results were abysmal LOL. If I can give this match another go before it closes out I will.

Please do! From what I've seen of your revolver and 1911 collection, I'm intrigued to see what you bring out for a rimfire match. And don't be ashamed to post anything up here...heck, last week I dumped one all the way off the target, so you definitely won't hear any judgement from me Big Grin!

Thanks Richard. Looking forward to seeing yours...sounds like you've got something with a dot, and that might be just the ticket for the precision this one demands.

If anybody else out there wants to jump in, the more the merrier! Only cost to join is a piece of printer paper and 20 rounds of .22!

Hoping to get to the range this weekend.

Edited to add:
In the meantime, I'm looking for cardboard backer material, in case the foam backers at the range are all shot to pieces (for cleaner holes).

Well, while my results the second time out on this were somewhat less abysmal than the first, they are still not that great. I ran this a couple of times at 5 yards first as a warmup, then out to 7 for the real thing. I was off-target at first, found my groove a bit mid-way, then veered more off-course again haha…still, it was fun and I think I’m going to keep working this one for fun and skill-building anyway.

Gun is a 1947-vintage Smith & Wesson K-22, a gun clearly capable of a greater performance than this haha. Shots were taken double-action. Oddly, I found single-action work with this gun uncomfortable. I never shoot my DA revolvers SA so perhaps that’s just one more thing to work on.

Nice shooting FrontRange, and nice classic K-22.

Sometimes, I've shot better groups DA than SA with a revolver.

Must be forcing me to pay better attention to the fundamentals.

Nice shooting, FrontRange! This one definitely ended up being more challenging than it initially sounded. Good on you for running this one with a revolver (that's a beutiful K-22, by the way)! Now I kind of want to go back out and try it with my model 63.

I'm with you on the double-action accuracy, too...I've experienced the same thing. A nice, smooth double-action pull forces you to concentrate on pulling through the trigger at a consistent pace, while a short single-action is easier to anticipate the break and introduce a jerk.

TheFrontRange inspired me to try it with a revolver, so I took the 63-5 with me to the range today. Yeah, that was rough! Especially that third one. Not sure what happened there, but it's right at the top right under the grip of the gun. I guess if you're gonna miss, you might as well miss big! Big Grin

^^ Heck, man, that’s alright and I like that wheelgun!

I’m looking forward to getting back on the range to keep working this process.

I took my old H&R 929 Sidekick revolver to the range yesterday, but in practice I could hardly see see the circle dot targets with the glasses I had, and the white painted front sight made it hopeless. Those glasses have the left eye focused on infinity and the right (my master eye) focused at arm's length. I use them all the time for IDPA, Steel Challenge, Bowling Pins and other games.

This afternoon, I used a S&W Victory with a Burris FastFire red dot, both eyeglass lenses focused on infinity. I could see well enough to shoot the match after a practice target. I moved the roofing nail fasteners up fro the bottom to above the last row so the wide plastic rims wouldn't eclipse the lower corner bulls. ( I accidentally shot them during the practice but didn't get the stinkeye from the range officer Smile )

I scored it down six and 3X's. Double check me, please.
