    Thumbs up Wheel guns are fun...




    Dusted off the old Ruger 44 & went to the range ...

    Didn't do so hot guess I'm rusty (:smt003) this was @ 40 yds or so.

    Looking good there Rusty. I drag mine with me about every other tme I go to the range. I just get a charge out of shooting them as much today as I did 45yrs ago. Nothing like blue steel and wood. Good luck.

    I'll have to agree with that one. My S&W 29 accompanies me to every ammunition expending session.

    40 yards! Wow, I am lucky to get that grouping at 25 yards.
    I guess some guys are just natural shooters the rest of us have to work hard to do half that.

    ~ No sir, I wouldn't say I was a natural and it should have been tighter... But I will say Simmons puts out an excellent pistol scope and the Ruger 44 IS capable of better grouping than that in the hands of a TRUE natural =

    ~ the Simmons scope made the shots, I couldn't ever hit that (wide) group on iron sites = . And somedays it's better to be lucky than good... :smt003
    And no Sir, I haven't had the stoggie yet. I put it in the humi... but maybe today would be a good day for a smoke. But I have to say that the "CLINTS Texas salsa" is EXCELLENT but haven't had the hot yet ~ thanks alot...

    +1 with Revolver. I just can't get away from them old wheel guns. I can't hit like I use to, but I'll be shooting them till I can't shoot no more.
    Good Luck with yours.
