First time out today

A while back I bought a Ruger Vaquero, old model, I didn't have a chance to try it because of various commitments and the danged heat we have been having. I took it out this morning. First 6 shots out of the gun, 15 yards off hand. It is a shooter. First three shots touching in the bull, got sloppy after that.








When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!

Nice shootin. Those rugers almost always shoot good.

The only thing I will say is that you have had this gun for how long?

Re: First time out today

What do you do if they don't shoot to where you are aiming? On the fixed sighted revolvers such as the SAA.

The deer didn't disappear.... the 250,000 guys who used to walk around and make the deer move did.

there are things you can do - change the load to a faster or slower load, you can file down the front sight, your can twist the barrel and thus twist the sight, if needed. The main thing is once you find a load that shoots like the one above, you remember it and stick with it....

John, Somebody is going to be mad when they see the holes in the cushions. Nice pattern. Really like the pistol.

Is it common that you'd have to twist the barrel? Would it be easy to find a load that shoots to point of aim.

Twisting the barrel sounds like you need a gunsmith.
