Today I shot four boxes of .38 Special......two of American Eagle ball ammo, and two of DoubleTap wadcutters.

Used a two or three year old .357 magnum SAA and a 1977 Police Positive. They both shot great!

That SAA is a Brent special, great action job, wide spur hammer and my initials on the shovel head. The old USFA Gripmaker added the Hawaiian Koa grips. What a gem.

I love the SA’s grips. Extra nice.

Today was a nice day, too nice not to go to the range! I took four Gov't models, two in .45ACP, one in .38 Super, and one in 10mm. The .38 Super and one of the .45's were brand new and hadn't been fired until today. All did fine, flawless functioning and good accuracy. This was the first I shot a .38 Super in thirty years, it's even better than I can remember! The new Super with head-spacing on the mouth can certainly shoot right along with any .45 ACP I've ever shot! The 10mm didn't get any cast food today, I worked on some loads with Hornady XTP hollow points fully packed. All I can say is, true magnum power in a manageable service size self-loader! My Delta Elite has been modified for a ramped barrel, extra power mainspring, square bottom firing pin stop, Fire Dragon recoil management system, and Pachmayer steel lined grip panels. It all comes together nicely and takes true full power 10mm loads in stride.

Another fellow and I swapped guns around a few times, he had a non-descript S&W 9mm with a funny trigger that I just couldn't get used to. His other gun was a three inch Taurus "Judge". Now, that was actually an interesting little gun. I fired a couple cylinders of .45 Colt and accuracy was surprisingly pretty good. He said he had the wrong .410 shells for it, (huh?..how can they be wrong?). He had a box of 2.5" #6 shot and didn't want to shoot em because his "Judge" was chambered for 3". I assured him the 2.5" shells would work fine and he handed me the gun and shells saying he would shoot them after I did. No problem! I raked the back-stop rapid fire twice before he took his gun back convinced either 2.5" or 3" would work. It was kinda fun, but little more than a novelty...or the best compact
snake medicine ever made!

All in all, a good day.

Enjoying a warm and breezy North Dakota Bad Lands day with a cotton shirt for a change. Put the wool ones away for the third time this year. While out fencing, I let go with my .32-20 Army Special and 1895 Win. .30-40. Back at the house, recoil exercised a Bersa .380, Colt 1903, Colt Govt. .380 and a Savage .32. Life is good.

The Ruger being the new gun on the block is getting a lot of shooting time. Today was the first time in 12-15 years I’ve shot the Anschutz. It used to get a lot of range time.

Yea, sunny and 70. Hope I have a lot more days like this.

The ladies decided that they wanted "girl time" for Mother's Day. When the car load of ladies took off for Central Texas wine country...I loaded up and took off for the range ;)
I hadn't shot this 3rd Gen SAA in a while and this was as good a time as any.
36 rounds of 45 Colt, 255 grain RNFP, 6.0 Grains of TiteGroup between 15 and 20 yards.
