I shot Chris Rhodes 44 magnum with iron sights, that Ken Kelly worked on today for the first time. Standing, offhand, with no artificial support, I killed that little prairie dog at 125 yards today.
It was a quick goal achieved...Some days things go your way.

Those small targets really make you concentrate. Good shooting!

I don't shot iron sighted handgun off-hand without support very often...But when I do, I sometimes get lucky!

Being near-sighted and wearing my glasses, presents problems for me shooting irons. I'm just past mid-50, and my eyes will not focus through the magnification for things up close, like front sights or reading. I take my glasses off for reading and computer work. If I would have shot with safety glasses on, I would have been able to focus on the front sight just fine, but I wouldn't be able to see the pd good enough or at all (he was a little one).
If I can see it clearly, dot sight or scope, I can hit it. I don't do that much off-hand practice, but shooting is shooting.
Chris's revolver was easy to shoot.
No Super Secret Squirrel here...

Good shootin' Ernie. I wouldn't even have been able to see it at that distance with the maked eye.
