Its not as nasty as it sounds Dimitri. The TC Contender is best shot single handed....there isn't really enough room for two hands behind the trigger guard.

I would shoot up to 60 rounds at a sitting through it....20 practice rounds and 40 competition rounds...when shooting sillouette.

If you get even half a chance mate, try one out. I loved mine. Very Happy I'm only sorry I never got the chance to "blood" the gun out hunting...but then again we aren't allowed to hunt with pistol where I am. Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad

Cheers, Vince

Howdy. I agree with ya Vince. I have never owned one but I have shot my buddys quite a bit. He had a 22 barrel for his, we use to hunt squirrels with it Very Happy I missed more than I hit with it but we had a blast Very Happy

You got it in one Joe....they are a real fun firearm. I could shoot 5" groups at 200yds from the Creedmore with mine, and I know it was capable of better.

Without question, I believe that the Thompson Center Arms firearms are pretty much the most versatile system on the market today. I mean, how many firearms can change calibre in 30 seconds...from rimfire to 45.70...all on the one frame. Then of course your can convert it to a carbine albeit a single shot, but still an excellent carbine.

Cheers, Vince

Vince,

I just might have to try it sometime in the future. Smile

Vince, you are so right. I've got two and they are really fun to shoot. Versatile doesn't even begin to describe these guns. I've shot everything from varmints to deer with mine. And they are accurate.

If single shot handguns is your thing, then the T/C is certainly a very good way to go.--tr

I love the fact that this has spread from a topic that didn't even mention a TC. I do like them and some day I'll have a pistol and one of thier rifles, but that will be in '08 when I'm saveing up for a wetherby O/U and a browning BDL
