After over 14 months, I finally got a chance to shoot on a square range this past weekend. No run (uhh...roll) and gun, just static shooting at pepper poppers from the 50 yard line. Suprisingly, my 4" Model 19 and my USFA SAA were two handguns I could hit consistently with, along with my 6" Model 27, which was no suprise.

The Model 19 was very accurate, even with cheap lead SWC's. I didn't expect to hit a thing with the USFA SAA, given the tiny sights (although I did have the rear sight channel hogged out some when I had the leaf springs replaced with coil springs) and long hammer fall. I was really impressed!

Didn't do so well with my Kimber. My fault, I'm sure...just have to figure out what the hell I was doing wrong. :confused: :help:

I used to work with a guy that had been in Burma for a couple of years. He said that he had a carbine that had sights like that. "Aim for the Jap's belly button and you'd hit him in the heart, every time."

Ed liked to tell that story. :p
