1 Eyed Jack - Yep, I fire it standing most of the time, and I do tend to lean into it. The recoil seems like it gets into my shoulder more if I fire crouched down on the ground. Haven't tried sitting because that seems like a "fake" way to learn to handle a gun. You're probably never going to be in that kind of a stance if you're using it against someone, so it seems silly to learn that way, even if accuracy would probably be better because the gun would be more steady.
Ozo, yep, need a lot more time firing it, that's for sure. The UPS man brought me five new kinds of ammo to try yesterday, so I'll have some practicing ahead of me. I did try five rounds of each yesterday. No noticeable difference in what the gun likes, but it didn't want to chamber the Fiocchis very well. They seemed tight. Maybe there was just too much powder buildup? Because those were the last ones I tried. Who knows.
Having trouble finding the right muzzle guide. This is the only one that's specifically labeled for .357 and it's got a different shape than most of them and it's only for coated rods, it seems. http://www.brownells.com/gun-cleanin...prod18695.aspx
Maybe this one would be fine, though, because it's for .27 and up? http://www.brownells.com/gun-cleanin...-prod5650.aspx
Or maybe this Hoppes one? http://www.amazon.com/Hoppes-Small-R...969095-7004216
Is it actually considered a small bore rifle, though? Can't decide, and don't want to get the wrong one.
