    That is one lovely lady you got there. If you don't mind me asking, what did the rig set you back with the optics? I've been thinking about getting a Ruger. However having seen that, I am seriously getting all hot and bothered.

    My friend Steve (no longer alive) had a bunch of Browning guns and one of them was the Buckmark. I recall it was a good shooter.

    I had a ball with it at the range. Not a single feed jam. The gun was better than the crappy Remington Thunderbolt ammo I had...It loved the CCI..

    Peace...

    The 22A-1 was $289.00

    The Simmons ShotDot 1x30mm Red Dot Scope was $46.00 or so with shipping. It comes with the Weaver rings and all the needed mounting hardware. The 22A-1 has the full length Weaver mount.

    I was looking at the Ruger as well, but this one just felt better in my hand. Field stripping and reassembly is so much easier on the 22A vs the MRKII and III... Try one.

    I'm gonna post the targets later this week. I zeroed the scope at 10yds just to get ready for the Monday night plate shoot. I'll be back at the range to take it out to 25yds just to see how good it gets...

    Peace...

    I appreciate that. I was on their website and could not find it. I think I might have to go to the range and try one out. I've got a model 7 I'd like to sell, should be more than enough. Summer's around the corner, and I'd really like a nice plinker to fool around with on the range. If that thing handles half as well as it looks then I'm sold.

    Very nice! I love the wood grip.

    Done. I posted some of the targets on my "Albums" page Range Porn. It was different than the Sig Mosquito.
    More weight to hold still so the 2nd cup of coffee had an adverse effect.
    Very accurate. The ShotDot scope was easy to zero. Couple of clicks and the hits were on the dot.

    Then the real test. Monday at the plate shoot. Placed 3rd out of 10 shooters. Not bad for the first time under some pressure with this gun.

    Made some mods to the grip as I learned the hard way that the wood was extended a little too far beyond the mag well and was cut too narrow to facilitate quick magazine swaps. I fumbled a bit when I had to reload. I looked at 2 of the same model guns at the shoot and noted some grip rework others had done that I liked. I took the grip off and held it for a while and let my fingers tell me where to smooth and remove some material. It's a work in progress.

    So my question is, Where are the pictures of yours?

    Peace.

    Nicely done 6SC, 3rd for the first time out, That's good too... You'll get used to that thing and you will be 1 of 10!

    I think there is a 100 yard target in the pictures trying to get the 44 into Festus's group. I am getting anxious to get the range open again...

    Yea the days are getting longer and a bit warmer. I need to get hold of Tim and get my application in for a local club here that has a nice outdoor range. Still waiting for my Sig to sell so that I can roll that money into a small summer carry piece. Looking at a S&W M&P40 compact.

    Will see what happens.

    Peace.
