Took the 617 and 640 out for a spin. My neck it still bothering me so I figured it's just be a few shots and done.
Well that was embarrassing.
Things I learned. Pausing the DA trigger squeeze is doable. A viable for me method. When I got it down right I get groups like this at 25 feet.
Practice at the range and DRY FIRE will improve this. Note the hole at 4 o'clock? That was supposed to go in the target below. It was +P.
Which makes me think... Prowler busting in at 3AM, with +P ammo already in the gun... anticipatory missed because of recoil and no hearing protection... Not good.
There is a spare .22 in there, too. Dunno where/when that came into play. Grrr. Amateur.
Ugh, revolver through me for a loop, all that training on the 1911 platform and Glock simulations.
Here is some more .22 after I was warmed up with the DA.
Firing a little high. Even for me. The 617 has adjustable sights. I may adjust.
And some more snubbie work.
Snub sights suck. I don't need to tell you that. I am sure the lower right two are anticipatory. Old bad habits. Still in the paint at least. A serviceable group, but I am not satisfied with it.
All my revolvers are timed fine, now that the 686 is fixed. And all have a similar smoothness to the trigger pull. (The 617 might be a little lighter.) So no radical difference between guns. Which is mostly due to consistencies at S&W, I'll wager.
Future live fire plans... Bring the 686 in lieu of the 617 next time, to really get to work on this trigger pull. Also, get a better neck so you don't flag as easily and get more rounds down range. I think I can tighten that up with just a bit more practice. If I consistently get snubbie shots in that circle at 25 feet? Boy, howdy.
There Has To Be A Better Way - You want to shoot someone in training? This is how you do it. Not every time. Maybe not today or tomorrow. But eventually. You wouldn't even be able to cal...
