Target shooting with my Revolver

Hello all,

Just recently after a few months of not shooting the .22 single shot revolver, I managed to pull it out of storage and go to a local gun range. The environment was amazing. The people were friendly and the range didn't require a person to go down range to setup targets. The targets were on a machine like a garage door, and you used a switch the adjust the distance of the target. I was there for about an hour with my younger sister who I taught some basic shooting principles to since she wanted to go. It was her first time shooting a revolver ever. Here is how well I did after shooting for almost an hour right before leaving. The top two targets were me and the bottom two are my sister's. The one on the left is shooting at seven yards while the right is the target at fifteen yards. While I was off on the targets, my grouping is still alright. I see a lot of room for improvement.

I stated staring at people in the local truck stop parking lot.  Sometimes I get offer meth, other times I get offer aggressive man-on-man action in this vacant room that reaks of piss and failure.

I love shooting revolvers, it's practically all I shoot when I'm not shooting long guns. 22's are also very fun. People have a tendency to overlook both; you see a lot of people at the range shooting nothing but polymer frame semi-autos in 380, 9mm, 40, and 45. Not that there's anything wrong with that, but man...those people are missing out on so much.

Anyway, sounds like you had a good time. Keep it up...not only is it a great masculine hobby, it's also a valuable skill that every man should have.

Thanks. I do know, if I needed to use it in action, I have a good chance of dealing some damage, but I'm not quite there yet. On a range, I'm pretty decent. I'm trying to improve since, I do plan to full on carry at somepoint either with this little piece or with a different revolver such as a .38, .45, .44 or something similar to those types of rounds. I have shot a handgun and the Evil Genius can agree to me being better with a revolver. When I take out my .22 rifle, I'll show y'all what I can do with that.

Don't let Umbra fool you; he is a great shot---especially with a rifle....and he is getting better and better with the pistol!

Thanks. I'm definitely trying to get better for sure.

Try wearing a muscle shirt and getting hopped up on Monster Energy drinks and possibly cocaine before you go out there.

I haven't poked holes in paper for quite some time.

I need to do that...

Steel frames are where it's at.  Firing single action, single shot will ensure that any physical deficiencies are quickly revealed.

Hello all,

Kudos Umbra for showing your sister how to safely utilize a firearm.  Should be mandatory for everyone, how to safely load and unload a weapon.
