    Kurt, the aiming black on the LR targets is 4 minutes. sr target 4.5 moa, silhouette ram is almost 6 minutes head to tail... If a gun can consistently hold 3 moa or less , it'll be competitive, tighter is better, but sometimes chasing your tail...

    I know that I am wading in late but I carried a S&W 29 on the streets for years and shot it well with full power loads....I also had a Redhawk and a Super Black Hawk. The rolling of the SBH gave me problems but it shot well if I did my part. I...

    Twitch at the wrong time, unseen shift in wind or mirage, a little cloud coming over, or the sun peeking thru cloud cover, a case stretching,,, there are tons of things that will make a moa load shoot a miss.. But if you know the gun will...

    On most of our ingots a shear cutter could be built to cut off what was needed. Get the leverage right between the pivots blade and handle it would cut easily.

    Kurt that's always the down fall, wondering well what if... :) I am coming to the conclusion that if a person has a load that will consistently shoot 3 moa or less, that would be good enough to win most matches anywhere anytime. Mental...

    The main thing to shooting well is finding something that works and sticking with it. That's why folks that have shot Swiss for several years stick with it, and most won't even try anything new, they have no reason to. Then on the other hand you...

    Trigger seems to have lightened a bit on pull now after about 100 to 150 shots. Got it sighted in good at 20 yds. now about a 1/2" above the front sight. Got a nice surprise with Gamo Magnum pointed 15.42 gr. pellets indoors at about 6 yds....

    Both of my 1/3 yard barrows are old enough to have the 2" wide steel wheels on them. These roll the easiest with heavy loads. Rubber tires flatten out on the bottom from the weight making them harder to push

    Hands and their sizes and conformation, and thickness of fingers, etc., vary as much as personalities do. So the only way to really know is to try them both. One point: dhom above has it right. The ONLY way you'll EVER get accurate with a SA .44...

    Neato! Those old K-frame 2" guns are seldom written about, but you get 6 shots and yours is +P rated, too. And that stuff matters too often to not appreciate the plusses they offer. I have an old Tyler T-grip on my Pre-74 Colt DS. Love the way...

    In a .44, I wouldn't consider anything shorter than 4". I already have tinnitus, and don't want ANY more of it than I already have. The .44's cylinder is so large that shorter barrels don't really enhance concealability, so there's really nothing...

    Properly done, a college degree should teach discipline and determination as much as it does information. It should develop good judgment. Today? Sadly, I live in a college town, and I see so very little of these things. Most can't handle their...

    Thanks, Boaz, and Jim nailed it. The "modern" wants to see and think about only that which he WANTS to consider. Ancient wisdom is humble and charitable enough to only want what is true, and is of God, and puts all else secondary to that. None of...
