Shot this 10-shot group at 25Y, off-hand with a SW Victory 22lr (all factory) with a red dot and cheap golden bullets. When I retrieved the target, I couldn’t believe what I was seeing!! It measures 0.95”

I think I’ve earned some bragging rights grin

BTW, can someone range the 25Y target at Frisco Gun Club? Their display was showing 25Y, but my rangefinder was reading 23Y.

That's good shooting with a pistol at 25 yards. My best 10-yard target looks about like that.

How do you like the S&W? Heard good stuff about those Victory pistols.

Thanks for the compliments.

I love this pistol. It’s easy to clean, completely reliable with every type of ammo I’ve tried, and extremely accurate. The fit and finish is pretty nice. The trigger breaks at around 3.8 lbs and is fairly crisp.
It also comes with a plastic picatinny rail that had a tendency to come loose. I put some purple Loctite and the issue is now resolved.

Of hand meaning strong hand only or weak hand only?

As a youth I was taught to shoot a handgun one handed, bullseye style. They told me if a handgun was meant to be shot with two hands it would have two handles on it.

Great shooting by the way!

Just curious because in our annual qualification course we have a “off-hand” portion that is one handed with our “off” or weak hand.

Nice shooting anyways

Shooting off-hand with my G35 I’m getting around 2.8” groups at 25Y. The red dot makes it easier. I’m now contemplating getting a Glock MOS.

I don’t shoot pistol often and truth be told I think I got a little (a lot?) lucky. I need to shoot the Victory more to see the kind of accuracy I’m able to get off-hand. I suspect around 1.5” to 2” average groups off-hand at 25Y would be more realistic.

GrandmasterB, have you installed that TK trigger? I got one but I couldn't get the gun to function properly and had to return it. Now it's 100% factory and is flawless.

BTW I did change the Bushnell red dot for a Vortex Venom.
