First to give credit where credit is due.
Thanks to BBP and especially Dan for his assistance in helping me acquire my new Dan Wesson specialist.

Gun Firearm Trigger Electric blue Plastic

Now he shipped it out Wednesday and Friday it was in my hands.
Had to wait until today to get out to the farm and pull the trigger.
Shot fifty rounds cleaned it then shot another 100 and called it a day.
After fifty rounds warning dirty pics..
Metal Silver Ribbon

Warning more dirty pics. After 100 more rounds..
Plastic Hood Toy vehicle

Had fifty rounds each of Remington, blazer and perfecta.
Had one failure to eject on the fourth magazine.
Which I take the blame for.
I loaded one mag each with each type ammo, then loaded the fourth with a random mix of the three which is the mag I had the failure on.
After that I didn't mix anymore of the ammo in the same mag and had no other issues.

I don't have any paper targets to show you. But I can say the specialist is accurate and it impressed me.
I stuck sticks up out of a stump...
Here's a stick... 7 to 10 yards.

Here's some lead that stuck in the stump....

And one final pic so you can see the size of the sticks, look for the quarter for comparison.

Thank you Dan from BBP you helped to make my weekend.
If anyone needs a gun I suggest they contact Dan.
His prices are great and his customer service is outstanding.
Thanks Dan what a blast.

Congrats on the new gun looks awesome. Love the way you shot outdoors. The only way I'll shoot. Love to see mud, water, bark, wood chips, cans bottles, etc.... flying into the air instead of another hole appear in a piece of paper. Way more fun to me. I understand some city dwellers can't.

Any fish in them thar swimming holes? Looks like a great place to shoot some critters also. Looks like a slice of heaven to me.

If you didn't destroy the shell Sawgrass might want it. Might send her a PM.
