Found my son's birth year Baer, 04/2006 Premier II . We got to run some rounds through it and it's a shooter. Very tight ,smooth and did I say accurate. I hope to shoot thousands of rounds with my son in future years to come.

@retrieverman I asked about your Baer when I was checking on this one, yours was made 02/2006. I still wouldn't mind having a thunder ranch to match this one.

I bought a 2nd hand Hillsdale gun and it is tighter than my new 1.5" gun but not as accurate. Close but no cigar. I'll carry the Hillsdale gun and shoot the heck out of it.
I see a lot of post like this comparing the accuracy of handguns, but it’s tough for me since I’m the limiting factor.

I have found that a good indication of accuracy is to shoot off some sort of rest at 50ft to 25yds with a known accurate ammo. I shoot at 3" orange dots on buff target paper. The other way is to shoot off a Ransom Rest which I also do. While not the last word, if set up and operated properly, it's pretty telling.

Mine is lovely. When I take any new pistol to the range I do take it with a few others that I have done sub 3 inch groups at 50 yards with a Ransom Rest. The trouble is with me using a Ransom Rest is sort of like watching paint dry and I realized quickly I seemed to be testing ammo to get the best results.

So taking a new toy out and shooting it next to known old ones in the same way with the same ammo makes me happy. Mine will probably be sold when I am gone. There are several other rifles and pistols that will go to Nephews and grand kids.
