Not bad..not perfect, but not bad

Went to Kingsberg Gun Club yesterday for a little 16yd trap.
First two rounds was a 48.
Second two was a 47, for a 95 on the day.
I'll take it after a month off.
Won't win a belt buckle, but not bad.

Does anybody know?

In yesterdays post is a photo of a .38spl S&W.

It is a 5 screw, 4", hand ejector, no model number. Serial # 601851

I got it from my grandfather 50+ years ago.
It will become part of  my wedding present to my granddaughter next month.
A few interesting stories behind this pistol but I don't know how old it is, and I'm NOT going to pay Smith $75.00 to find out.
Maybe one you have a book or something.
If it was a Colt, I'd just ask Old NFO...heh.

Cleaning iron

Hoppe's #9 smells like freedom don't it?
Almost as good as burnt powder.

If the Bride was still here she would say "Why don't you just put 'em in the dish washer?" Cracked me up every time. Miss her smart ass.
Couple of ARs, two bolties, and a S&W 686 and I can dirty 'em up again.

Take a kid shootin'

Ladies shoot in the books

The turnout was pretty good, about 20+.
I took three young ladies that had never held a pistol before under my wing and by the end of the day they had 'em all in the body with a lot in the ten ring.
It was nice to watch them coming back to the line indexing fingers and pointing to low ready, cylinders open or slides back.

Pics later.
