It finally stopped raining for 2 straight days, but the pistol range still has standing water in most parts, so I took a couple of revolvers out yesterday and left the brass throwing things at home. Decided to mostly work on double action shooting and boy to I need to practice! Took my 4" 66 and 5" 686 with .38 special and a few .357 rounds. At 12 yards, firing quick, but certainly not fast, I kept almost everything in the 8 ring on a reduced size silhouette target, but no one would confuse the results with tight groups. Eight " round bullseye target was fairly easy if I slowed down enough between shots to get a good sight picture. Lot of fun anyway. One load I was using comes from a commercial loader (Georgia Arms) and they use a very hard 125 grain LRNFP style bullet at 750FPS. Very mild load with no leading and good accuracy when I prop up on something and bear down. Finished cleaning today, so I am ready for another visit if the sun comes out one day next week.

Great looking pair of revolvers. Instead of rain, we have had snow the past couple of days.....probably about 6-7 inches. It is supposed to almost 40 on Sunday afternoon, but there will still be plenty of snow on the ground. Might try to get out anyways
