I would say BETH congrats nice job. You didn't say what caliber but that really doesnt matter great shooting. As for getting tired well that is the difference in revolver to auto loader cocking evey shot can get tireing but it will get easer. Remember BETH most revolvers have extra steel . And as stated you never shot a revolver befor . BETH your muscle memory well get stronger and have more endurance. Take heart lady you are far and away better than most everyone else men or women. Bowling pins at 55 yards very nice. Man how i love to see women on the range or in the woods.

it was 22lr the guy that helped me shoots a high standard no scope and he is very good he looked at my left hand which had black on it and suggested another way to hold pistol he stayed there with me in case i needed help and he knew what he was talking about. I have to say that is one nice pistol i have a 22mag also that goes with it.

Wow Beth that is great shooting for the first time out with that Single Six. Bowling pin at 55 yards, "not too shabby". Keep it up and you will love that revolver.

I agree with todd51 . I have a few more questions what barrel lenght and i am guessing you have windage and elevation ajustments because you will need them when switching from LR to Magnums. Also did i ever get a suprise the first time i touched off a .220 mag round make sure your hearing protection is good you will need it.

Beth, have you ever heard of grammar & punctuation? It sure would be easier to read and understand what you write if you would throw in a few periods and capital letters, for example.
