Some of our Arizona group hooked up for a local gun show, noticed more long rifles, wheelguns and not as many black rifles compared to earlier this year.

Another day last week we spent some time at a private range, brought a 27-2/5" and a Pro Series 686P/5". Shot some .357mag Fiocchi JHP and some handloads, practiced getting off the "X" vigorously. Then it was time for the long range challenge, clay pigeons @~100 paces off hand standing. Had more misses than hits, but the handloaded Remington 140gr SJHPs (2011,AA#9,1500s) and 158gr Nosler JHPs made some hits, IIRC only one hit with the 686P and several with the 27-2.

With 100+ degrees it didn't take long for the cylinders to heat up too hot to touch, when one got too hot we switched off to the other. I really enjoy shooting the like new 27-2, it balances very, very well in these ancient muffs. :)

After a while we went inside and enjoyed the a/c and ice cube well water, no crappy city water. :)

And a good time was had by all.

Glad you were able to get out and enjoy some time sat the range. Make sure you tell the "Arizona" group that we miss hearing from them and to keep in touch. Thanks for the range report.:cool:
