Open top match!
« on: September 12, 2016, 12:17:20 PM »
Friendship has an Open Top Aggregate on the pistol line!
400 points! (40 rounds, 25 and 50 yards)

Match shoots through Saturday.
NMLRA range at Friendship, IN.
Provisional match: enough people shoot it and it becomes permanent!

Pretty good shooting.
Despite what some folks say about brassers, I find them very accurate and reliable if you don't overload or mistreat them.

There is no revolver that is smoother in action than a brass framed revolver. Hollywood sure loves them.  &\? &\? &\?

That sounds just about perfect.

Fortunate? I would say skilled! Many years ago, I took my '58 Remington (my ONLY BP revolver at the time) and spent all day shooting and didn't have as many in the black as you have on one target. Yep, first and only revolver at that time, was trying to find where and how to hold and find an accurate load. Failed in all those! :-[
