So I got out yesterday to shoot some more, brought my recently acquired S&W model 10-7 and the Ruger Bisley BH Flattop in .44sp along.

http://img405.imageshack.us/img405/9265/model10skinny008.jpg

I forgot my 'BG dressed in black targets', so I just used the generic bullseye targets at ranges between 21ft and 65ft.

I used Magtech 125gr FMJ TC in .38sp, and Blazer 200gr Gold Dots in the .44sp.
Magtech advertises this load at 1000fps....I doubt it, and the Blazer load actually chronos just under 900fps in the .44sp Rugers like mine.(4&5/8"bbl)

I started with the Smith mod 10, this one has the skinny barrel.

http://img813.imageshack.us/img813/9066/model10skinny009.jpg

Shooting was fast at 21ft, shoot six, speedload,and shoot six more. Rate of fire was over 1/sec.

At 45ft, slow DA, cloverleafed 5 and threw one wide for a 1.3" six shot group. Same deal at 65ft yielded a 2.5" group. Happy with that.:supergrin:

It still needs a tyler, but it shoots damn good. I pulled the sideplate today, added a little Tetra lube. It was dry.

THe Ruger Bisley .44sp was hot this day, shot really good.

http://img714.imageshack.us/img714/433/model10skinny010.jpg

On top of my usual stuff, I also shot some one-handed efforts since this gun lends itself esp well to bullseye type shooting.

21ft 'rapid fire' worked out to about 1/2sec with strong side thumb cocking SA shooting.
45ft groups were well under 2"
http://img545.imageshack.us/img545/3269/model10skinny012.jpg

...and I pulled it off again at 65ft. Metal....

One handed went pretty decent at 3oft, the loose group in the white was 50ft, strong hand.
http://img84.imageshack.us/img84/7350/model10skinny013.jpg

I learned a few hundred rounds ago it liked this ammo, I should stock up.

Berto, cool thread and pics. I like those Blazer 200gr GD rounds, myself, in my Dan Wesson. They shoot to same point of aim as the Rem and Win 240gr magnums. Plus jackets are nice in my 8" ported barrel instead of shaved lead. Also shoot just as well in my 4" barrel.

Chose to go out today and shoot my 17 though. I like 12 yards for quick fire. 10 aimed shots inside about 10 seconds. Not real fast, I know, but a 3.5" group. Bet I can be more accurate than the Glock with .44spl. Certainly in single action, quick cocks, and 8" barrel. Not sure about double action. Think I'll go out and try, probably with 4" barrel.

Just rambling, but your thread gave me some inspiration to take the .44 out :)

I do my best fast shooting at 7-10yrds with the 1911 and my K frames or Ruger Gp100. The trick for me was learning the rhythm of staging, rolling off the shot and reset on DA revolvers, having the next shot ready as the sight falls back in the notch.
Certainly the 1911 trigger makes up for a little more bounce with the heavier round, but I'm pretty fast with both types and can do the Higginbotham drill on both platforms without much trouble.

I could probably find a revolver around here somewhere if I looked real hard. I think I've got one. :whistling:

Guns, what guns, I was looking at the SG and the Strat,LOL.
I've played guitar since age 5, well, actually I've "Played" since 14 but I've had a guitar since age 5 but with being unemployed some "toys" have had to go so I currently don't have a guitar or bass but I still have my harmonicas,LOL.
Once I get back to work I plan on picking up an inexpensive bass and a small amp, maybe 250 watts(you need more amp for a bass guitar then you do for a regular six string) just to mess around with.
Anyway, back on point, I'm coming to my senses and getting more into wheel guns again. I just get tired of hunting down all my brass when I shoot and I don't have to with a six gun. Oh well, nice looking revolvers. Congrats. :cool:

I've posted this elsewhere, but I guess I haven't shared the story here.

These are a Ruger factory reference set with consecutive serial numbers. They are "Minnesota Conservation Officer" commemoratives and noted on page 278 of the "Reference of Ruger Firearms", pocket edition #2, but......

The more interesting info on their origin comes from the original owner’s son (not me):

“My family has a summer home in Sunapee NH a few miles form (sic) the Ruger factory. Dad became quite friendly with many Ruger employees as he also had an FFL and bought many employee guns and also many U and asterisk guns. Back in the mid 80's, I'd have to verify the dates, a Ruger Production Manager came to my dad and began selling him quite a few guns. It was from him we got the SN 175 subscription. He came to my dad with these 3 and probably 20 others all very rare NIB. Dad bought them all. About 2-3 months later the NH State police pay dad a visit. He was informed the guns were stolen from the factory collection. Dad had to surrender all the guns and testify. Person plead guilty, served 5 years or so. Of course he lost his job which was basically the number one guy in Operations. At the time it was a 100K job probably. After the sentencing, WBR SR. allowed the return of the guns to my dad.”

Good looking Lester and how are you liking the Orange amp....?

I have my LP Studio in getting refinished right now, and I'm eyeballing some sort of small tube amp like a Fender Blues Jr or the newer small Vox.
I use an older transvalve ART right now, just want something warmer for low volume practice.

I've got all the semi-autos I'll ever need and want. From here on if I buy another handgun it will be another revolver.

Kind of slick once the hand gets sweaty, but as you indicated, they fit me like a well-worn glove. I've though about bead-blasting them or something, to rough-up the finish for a better grip in warm weather, but I was afraid it would ruin their natural beauty... :whistling:

Because of this stupid regulation that did ban 4" barrel here in the 90's I'm slowly into collecting 5" revolvers.
I have one in 38 Special - model 10.
Now I just found one in 357 - model 27.
I'll be on a lookout for 5" model 29 now :)
