    Speed shooting with a 1905 Target Model

    We've been doing a speed shoot at the club this year with the Texas Star we recently purchased. Only myself and one other guy are clinging to our revolvers while everybody else bangs away with their bottom feeders. I will admit to buying a clean used Model 929 N Frame 8 shot 9mm for this event and it has done very well for me. I'm usually second or third fastest overall time each shoot. So anyway since last night was the last shoot this season I decided to try an unlikely choice for this venue. I brought along my old 1905 M&P Target and some .38 wadcutters loaded over 3gr. of Titegroup. Well I shot a 3.28 second round with the 929 so I was feeling pretty good. I was quite surprised when I managed a 3.45 second round with the old M&P. Surprised everyone there too. Just goes to prove that the old iron will get the job done when called upon.

    Great shooting. Do you think you'd get a better time if you shot standing up as opposed to laying on your left side?

    Everything that happens is either endurable or not. If it’s endurable, then endure it. Stop complaining. If it’s unendurable . . . then stop complaining. Your destruction will mean its end as well.

    The Texas star is a gang of fun. It's mostly a hero or zero thing as a good run is so quick it sort of takes you by surprise but throw in a miss or two and that thing gets to spinning and you can empty a 15 round mag and still have plates hanging on. BTW I have no Idea why my pics posted sideways. They usually post just fine.

    Not the old iron, it’s the shooter gets the job done. Good shooting!
