Re: New SBR: VZ 61

Okay, that's awesome! :txflag: Thanks. :biggrinjester: It's a really interesting gun, from a design perspective. Well made, good trigger. Of course, the short stock with no good cheek weld is less than ideal. The caliber is sub optimal. The short sight radius and tiny sights aren't great. But man, ...

Re: Switching to wheel guns this year

I did some pseudo science after listening to a Primary and Secondary podcast on Snubbies this week. One of the guests was very anti thumbs forward grips on revolvers. I'm a fan of shooting even wheel guns thumbs forward. Well, I went out to the range to "prove him wrong". Instead, I got a mixed bag ...

Re: Switching to wheel guns this year

I do miss my Victory Model and I did shoot it a lot. Bad move selling it. here is me a long time ago … https://youtu.be/OAKbJFsrlvc so have a blast Unfortunately I still can’t shoot the 627 in idpa. I’ve got an old model 10 I have shot in idpa this year, and I’ll try it with the new 66 at some point.

Re: Switching to wheel guns this year

So about that steel challenge match two weeks ago....the one where I had only 7 clean runs, with most of my bad runs (6 of the 9, to be exact) requiring 7 or more shots to clear the stage.... This look a little better to anyone else? https://i.imgur.com/rZNwlOO.jpg 15 runs, 11 clean. The 4 runs that...

New SBR: VZ 61

Something a little different for y’all.

.32 ACP isn’t exactly your typical rifle ammo, but the govt says this is a “rifle” so I’m putting it in this section of the forum. :biggrinjester:

Re: Switching to wheel guns this year

Confession time. There was one more reason I decided to shoot wheel guns this year besides those listed in the original post. Because I can't make good hits with my J frame. It's been that way since I inherited it from my grandfather. In the past I always chalked it up to a heavy trigger, crappy sig...

Re: Switching to wheel guns this year

It sounds like an interesting experiment. Having just read earlier today about an attack by 10-11 reportedly Somali males at a train station in MN. the lack of capacity before reloading of a revolver is a larger concern. Everything is a compromise of course but I think I'm moving back toward a mini...

Re: CZ P-01

If I could only keep one handgun, it would be a CZ compact of some sort.

Best description i can think of for the P-01 is a slightly heavier G19 with a good trigger.

Outstanding guns.

Re: Switching to wheel guns this year

Adding some science to this year's steel challenge season. I'll also be adding in the average time per stage, and keeping track of my fastest runs per stage with each gun. This way I'll be able to tell what stages and what guns I had the most clean runs with, fastest average times, etc. Getting some...

Re: Switching to wheel guns this year

Shot a steel challenge match on Thursday night (5/16). It was my first trip to the range since 5/1. Haven't been keeping up with my dry fire either. I knew that was a bad sign, so I'm not shooting steel challenge with the J frame just yet. Going to get back into a practice routine and slowly easy do...

A. What are those speedloaders?
Safariland Comp 3s.

Unlike comp2s, hks, and most speedloaders, they aren’t twist to release.

Line it up, push into cylinder and the rounds pop free. It’s an innovative (but slightly bulky) design.

But it’s fast. Not moonclip fast, but close.

Re: Switching to wheel guns this year

Half marathon done! Less running, more range time coming up for the rest of the year. I knocked 26 minutes off my time from my last half marathon, so the training time was worth it...and this was a much more challenging course than my last one too. But now that it is over, getting a little more rang...

Re: Switching to wheel guns this year

On another forum, someone asked if I’d read “no second place winner”. I haven’t, and this is definitely the year to read all the old wheel gun stuff. I ordered it and six guns by Elmer Keith. “Hell I was there” is apparently out of print so if anyone knows of a copy for sale for less than $80, let m...
