Well, I got this Ruger back in May and I finally had time to go shoot it! I'm not too happy with my shooting, the rust really shows, but I like the gun! Ten rounds (200 grain SWC over 5.0 grains of Bullseye) at 15 yards. The group measures about 3.75". Ignore the .22 holes, I was "recycling" the target from another shooter.

Nothin' wrong with those shots Punkin...as Elvis said...its dead mate. If you are carrying it, then a group like that at 15 yards in the centre of the "seen mass" would make one helluva mess mate, and it would be all in your favour.

Having said that, keep practising...time what's not spent shootin', huntin' and fishin' is time wasted mate.

Well I think it is horrible. You better send it to me and let me check it out. I will pay for the one way shipping.

Gee that's a purdy gun. I wish I could shoot one of those, they're too darned big for me and too darned powerful, I bet my groups would be way worse unless I had a bench rest. I really like the metal finish. Get out there and plink some more!

Suz, all it takes is practice mate. I've seen rather petite young ladies handling full house 1911 Colt .45 pistols without any problems. All it takes is range time and plenty of rounds for practice.

Haven't put my hands on one of these yet but from what I hear they're getting great feedback !!!


Suz, don't sell yourself short......with the right training you'll be amazed at what you can handle.
It's proper technique that gives you the skill and ability to shoot larger calibers.
