    Dirty Harry I aint!!!!! :redface::redface::redface::redface::redface::redface:
    So....... today was my first time at shooting a wheelie of this stature. The 686 6" I just got from @Karl Beining
    Self note #1) Don't shoot a 1911 with 3-3.5 lbs trigger pull prior to shooting this beast.
    Self note #2) You ain't Clint Eastwood so forget the one handed aim & pull thing. Notice the peripheral shots close to being in another zip code.
    Self note #3) Two hands, firm grip, squeeze the trigger....... and be glad you have a 1911 back up.
    Most of the torso damage came from my .45 but a few of the wheelie shots made their way in. The upper hole punches were done with my JEMkyrie .38 sup.
    All shots coming from the 12-13 yds range.
    If I got further away and couldn't find the target with the .357 I'd even be too far away to throw it at the perp.
    I have to let the wheelie thing settle in for a bit... before I decide if they're for me or not.

    It takes a bit to master the double action pull of a revolver but once you do you will find the 686 can out shoot most autos. Try some dry fire practice while aiming at a small object.

    image.jpeg image.jpeg Today I had to complete the annual retiree qualification with my old agency. As Leosa requires you to qualify with the type of handgun you will carry, I shot twice, once with my G19, and again with my model 66. Two 100% scores but I almost dropped a half point at one stage with the revolver. Luckily I touched the line and they gave it to me. We use the Glock course of fire which includes malfunction drills.

    Does that include the revolver as well?

    Yes, just no malfunctions to clear but same round count per stage. We adopted the Glock qualification around 95. I like it because it indoctrinates officers to aim for the heart/lung area. Many Illinois agencies still use a target with the ten ring below the vitals.

    Had morning to hit the range. 8-7 001.jpg
    The new to me PMDP is the great shooter I have read about, 8-7 002.jpg but was trying to compensate for the initial grouping low and left. So did a little supported shooting. 8-5 002.jpg gun is verified just a tad low/left. Little sight adjustment needed. Always the shooters fault, most guns are more accurate than I could ever be.

    100 yds shooting, well, not slow.......My brain just isn’t wired for slow fire.

    Haven't been out with a rifle in nearly a year, so decided to hit the range and knock some steel over.

    I ran these two through some indoor range program drills tonight. Both fun guns to shoot and appreciate for different reasons. The 1911 is my first build, '#001'. It's been a very good shooter.

    I could live at this range, goes out to 1000 yards. Only costs $45 a year. If you're ever in central pa it's well worth paying a visit.
