Re: Is the Smith 41 worth the price

The comment about diet sensitivity is right on, as is the comment about the trigger. Not all .22 SV ammo will give optimal, reliable results in any .22 pistol; this is especially true in thoroughbred pistols like the Smith 41. Buy and test a lot of brands. For myself, I have settled on your other op...

Re: Who shoots the M1 Garand regularly?

Yeah, I have a load that works for me in my M1. Now....what do you mean by “works”? Do you mean function reliably or do you mean 10 ring groups at 600 yards? I have a rack grade M1 that I bought at the CMP store at Camp Perry in Ohio. It aint a target rifle but it works just fine. The load is a 147 ...

Dot

Ha. I should have written that those last two scores were done with my standard Bullseye gun and a red dot, not with irons.

November 2012 scores here

So....surprised I was when I came to this forum to post some scores. No scores posted since June....what? No one shooting? Alas, I have been shooting but, until today, not well. Just not applying myself. But....You guys.....seems like you always have good scores...and none posted in months. I have s...

shooting

Last month, I took the red dots off all my pistols. Using irons again was and is a - let's say - interesting learning experience. At 65 my eyes are not what they were when I started playing this game. .22/.45/air pistol....all irons. Wish that I could say that I have shot some wonderful scores....th...

March....I put the Ultra dot back on to the Victor.....just can't match it yet with irons. SF - 89 TF - 94 2X RF - 96 1X NMC - 279 3X Irons - Actually, the .45 is coming along somewhat better than the .22. I can pretty much duplicate or better my SF scores. TF - if I break that first shot at the buz...

March scores here

Actually, I have no score to post. Not shooting much .22 in any case, mostly all .45 as our indoor league winds down. I have decided to forgo the red dot optic on my guns and return to iron sights. That has caused what is at least a temporary drop in my scores. So....I won't be posting much until I ...

checking

One thing I quit doing that has helped sustained fire, is never check the target between strings. I see a lot off people doing it, but in my opinion, it can only make things worse. When you see a bad first string, it can play with your mind, and a really good one, plays with my mind even more. I ag...
