Well, you heard about the Beretta. I also shot my old Colt Diamondback 22lr and checked the sights. Man, what a sweet pistol, with great accuracy and a smooooth double action. Then shot the Python with 38s and 357s and then the new S&W 686 Plus with 38s and 357s. After I adjusted sights a bit on the 686, both pistols were very accurate in SA. In DA, the Python was easier for me to shoot accurately, but I think that has more to do with my having shot the Python for decades. The 686, in general, felt less smooth, but it is brand new. And I much prefer the target type hammer on the Python. And the Python is prettier.
So, why all the shooting? Thatís a reasonable question. Well, this coming weekend the older granddaughters are bringing the boyfriends. Both the girls shoot pretty well, and I know they will want to shoot the Python. They love that pistol. And one of the BFs is a West Point grad and a Captain in the Rangers. And there WILL be a pistol shooting competition, and I want to win. Thatís why I checked and adjusted all the pistol sights for my reloads. After we all shoot targets, we always have the One Shot Challenge where you pick your pistol and you get one round. So far, iíve always won, but every year one of the granddaughters is just a hair out of the money. And this year the Ranger comes to town. I have GOT to be on my game. Canít let this young Army Captain out shoot this old USMC Sergeant.
