    s&w 10-7 4"
    s&w 66-1 6"
    colt special 38 6"
    shot all with reloaded powder coated bullets
    the colt is a bit disappointing, it is a bit worn the barrel has like pitting and i have never liked the fixed sight. still it went bang. this gun requires a very firm grip to have any accuracy, not a favorite.
    the 10-7 is in almost new condition.a good looker with fake pearl handles. a feather trigger very different from any revolver i have ever shot. much more accurate than the colt by far. ricky likes.
    the 66-1 is stainless steel wood gripes a good looking gun. a joy to shoot. most accurate of the three. i need to do a side by side with it and my 686 which is dead-eye dick. and my most favorite revolver. may soon.
    now this is a range report about guns. this being a gun forum i thought some of you would like that for a change.

    I have been known to like a gun or two or three- four..
    I like the S&W over the colts. Never did like that trigger break just before the hammer drops.
    I have a 686, MODEL 10 hb. 4".. A 14 TARGET 6".. 13 4" a 638 air weight, a 36 snub.. 640 SS.
    And several more I haven't shot in a while.

    Didn’t Patton have something to say about pearl handles? :rolleyes:

    Glad you were able to get out and make some noise. If hard pressed I believe a 38 S&W is probably my favorite to shoot. Especially with 158 grain cast. Great guns!

    Unlike the movie "Patton" where George C. Scott said something like "only a New Orleans pimp would use pearl grips". All Patton said was "pearl is for pimps".

    38 spl is one of my favorite rounds, I had my Smith model 65 out last week and put some lead down range. Noticed I am getting low on ammo, down below 1000 rds, need to fire up the press and make some more. I've got five revolvers and a lever gun that I use it in. That's a lot of mouths to feed.

    Mighty fine shootin' there, Tex. That you, Tiger? That is decent shooting - especially with a pistol at that range. You guys are giving me the itch to chase some spiders out of my pistol barrels. I only get to use my 9mm's for chasing cattle off the place - then it's only pokin' holes in the sky.

    Ya that’s me,I was shooting my second batch of .357 hardcast 158gr.RNFP using HS-6 6.8grs.That’s my favorite go to shooting spot out in the local desert.
    Also they feed perfect in my Lever action rifle.
