I took the Dan Wesson out today for some "spring cleaning". It is the blued 44 mag in 2" fixed bbl. I only shot a few rounds of HSM Bear loads to start warming up to it. It will be my back up this year while hiking, camping and hunting, and it rides in a Diamond D Guide's Choice holster. The front sight is a flush-mounted plastic-looking red insert into the black ramp, and is not as bright and crisp as it used to be. But that's only fair, I guess, since my eyes are not as bright and crisp as they used to be either.
I stepped off 15 paces, and started off standing off-handed. Minute-of-pie plate.
I dropped to one knee, and concentrated harder on bringing that darn front sight in crisper and clearer. Ended up with a 6-shot group of 4". Gonna try some paint on that insert, but I love the rear sight. That revolver has a unique feel to pulling the hammer back, and the double action trigger isn't like anything I've shot before. I cant define it, but it's like the stack is all arraigned different. That probably makes no sense at all. But the SA trigger is very, very sweet, and I 'm really enjoying shooting it. The crazy thing is built like a vault.
I'll keep working on the shooting. It's not for hunting (though it could be in the hands of a better shooter) or for bench shooting, so I'll keep working off handed as to prepare better for it's intended use. 4" Isn't really terrible for 6 shots in those circumstance, but they were a very slooooow 6 shots for answering a charging ugly, so I gotta work on it.
