Re: Switching to wheel guns this year

Shot a falling steel match this weekend with the 627. It was below freezing and raining, so not a lot of folks came out. We had 18 shooters. I finished 13th, and was the only revolver shooter. First match with this gun. Like my first match with the M10 from earlier, everything got smoother on later ...

Re: Switching to wheel guns this year

Trying out some VZ grips on the 627. I've always liked them on my 1911s and CZs. Like them so far on the wheel gun too. https://i.imgur.com/qtPI2yp.jpg This is the steel match I'm shooting on Saturday. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G43HK1fjxKs I forgot there are 9 shot arrays sometimes. That shoul...

Re: Switching to wheel guns this year

Yeah, new camera to blame here. I need to adjust the angle and see if I can get the reloads in the picture too. I was using Safariland Comp3 speedloaders. They're great loaders, like them a lot. I'll be using moon clips in USPSA with the 627, but it's easier to shoot IDPA with a 6 shot since you're ...

Re: Switching to wheel guns this year

Funny story from the match: I had a nice, ~13ish second reload on the first stage of the match yesterday. It was on my SECOND reshoot of that stage. First time through, the swinging no shoot target fell off. Second time, the activator steel popper for the swinger took a solid hit and failed to fall,...

Re: Switching to wheel guns this year

https://i.imgur.com/ZZRbvBO.jpg I was the only revolver shooter today. Finished 14th out of 16 shooters, so I beat a couple of bottom feeders. Even finished 5th overall on one stage, but taking 10+ seconds to clear a case that slipped under the star on another stage will eat up some time, as will a...

Re: Switching to wheel guns this year

Finally finding time this weekend to shoot a match. IDPA, so I'll be using the M10 and Comp3s. Six total stages, two of which require 18 rounds, and another two that require 17. This is exactly the sort of challenge I was looking for by switching to revolver this year. A single miss on two stages me...

Re: Switching to wheel guns this year

So I mostly did this as a joke for a thread gone off the rails about the usefulness of red dots on pistols on another forum...

but now that it's together it's kind of growing on me.

If I can find a holster for it anyway.

Re: Switching to wheel guns this year

Thanks Bill!

Got the 627 and 637 back from the smith, got my parts in from Ruger for the rear sight on the LCRx, so I’m up and running again.

New GoPro comes in Tuesday so video quality is going to improve too.

Hopefully I’ll get to the range this weekend and shoot some more drills.

Re: Switching to wheel guns this year

74novaman, a couple of questions.... First, is that the Performance Center Model 19 K-Comp? She’s go-jiss! Second, where did you get the moon clip carriers? I’ve got to find one that will fit an 8-round moon clip for the TRR8. Close, that's a 586 L Comp from the PC. 7 shot L frame instead of a 6 sh...

Re: Switching to wheel guns this year

I figured if I’m carrying polymer I might as well carry more rounds. Thus the shield was chosen. I'm trying to fix that issue too. :biggrinjester: Spent today dry firing and trying out a possible way to carry moon clips outside of competition: a speedloader/moonclip holder from Simply Rugged holste...

Re: Switching to wheel guns this year

Still waiting on my 627 and 637 to get back from the smith. Round 2 of parts needed to finish the Ruger rear sight are supposedly inbound (first shipment didn't have two pieces needed to finish the rear sight still). Because I've been stuck with only two out of the planned five guns I was hoping to ...

Re: Switching to wheel guns this year

Loving the return to wheel gun pocket carry. With its diminutive weight it is effortless reliable carry. Only 1 out of the 5 guns I'm using for this year could really be considered a viable pocket carry option. I don't plan on using it much. While an LCP seems to conceal in a pocket okay, I've alwa...

Re: Switching to wheel guns this year

Good thread. I've bookmarked it to keep tabs. I've been on a big revolver kick lately and am looking to acquire my first. I want to find one to compete with also. The Model 10 is an interesting idea as a place to get started. The nice thing about the Model 10 is that Safariland makes the Comp 3 for...

Re: Switching to wheel guns this year

74novaman, on the range, are you shooting .357 ammo in your .357 revolvers, or primarily .38 Special? Out of the 5 guns I'm using this year, only 2 are .357s, so I'm keeping everything .38 for range time, competition, and carry to keep from having to worry about bringing the right ammo to the range...

Re: Switching to wheel guns this year

If you wouldn't mind a bit of feedback, I'd recommend applying a little more follow through on your final shot on each string. Yep, follow through is one of my biggest problems shooting (and one of the things I'm trying to work with by shooting wheel guns this year). Took a Pat Mac class in Decembe...
