Wheel guns are best for target practice
I went down to the range today with my old trusty S&W Model 19 and promptly shot my best group ever, 1.5" from 45 feet. I've shot primarily my semi autos all summer and there has been marked improvement in my skills to this point, shooting consistent 4"- groups with my Kimber TLE. But, today reminded me of a statement I've posted before and will again here, "the only gun I'll never sell is my S&W Model 19". It seems that I can just take it out and have pure confidence in its dead on accuracy after 3 months of not shooting it. Along with this group were others under 3". When people address this forum looking for a "range gun" my first suggestion will always be a K framed S&W or similar wheel gun. I think that the loading process and the finite amount of shots in the chamber, slow you down and force better concentration on the target. With my semi autos, I figure there's always another bullet in the clip, so what if that last shot was a flier.
