2 NAA mini-revolver mishaps during the same shooting session

Postby rp_photo » Sat Aug 12, 2017 1:40 pm

1. The rear sight flew off my Black Widow when shooting magnum rounds. Other than that, it handler them nicely and was fun to shoot. The range officer found it while sweeping brass. It's the adjustable sight model. It slides back on but won't lock in place.

2. My 22 Short revolver flew out of my hand and landed about 4 feet in front of me, I was able to retrieve it at ground level with the brass-sweeping broom. Not sure if this violated indoor range protocol. No dmage done, and once again fun to shoot this "BBUG".

Oh! Man! Those are rough! I'm glad the ceiling didn't fall from the report of those suckers.
