Or: How we do things in the Big City.
Attendance was better this month. Seven people joined me to shoot the match. A couple of regulars couldn’t make it, but a couple of others managed to rejoin us and a couple I hope will become regulars. Only two of us brought “minor” pistols, and one of us had function problems, so I managed to win minor for a change, essentially by default. All eight of us brought Major pistols, almost uniformly .45’s. I had to be different, and brought my Witness in .40 for a change. But I’ll come back to that.
Seven of us brought .22’s. Jim Burnett took that class handily. I just wasn’t fast enough this time. Five of us brought revolvers, two of them .44 Magnums with full-house loads. Let’s just say the pin damage this month was significant. But I managed to win the Revolver class this time. I have apparently learned how to hit with my S&W 327. I even managed to clean a table with five shots, double-action once. No one was more shocked than I was.
Jim Burnett also won Major with his Clark Custom pin gun, and beat me for overall pistol champion, but here was the highlight of the day: The second set of the second round of Major, we had a little… “incident.” Watch:
Thanks to Jim Bertrand and his hat-cam for catching that.
