Nice, the 686 has always been one of my favorite.357’stook out the S&W 686 + today. it hadn't been to the range since September.
took 50 rds, reloaded .357, and 50 rds, reloaded 38 special.
the 50 rds of .357, shot in single action

i didn't even take home the target (or take pics) of the 38 special, cuz i was having too much fun, shooting in double action, and well......i was all over the place. i hit the target, but no groupings whatsoever.
You could give it to me. I don't want you to hurt your hands. 😁 Of course then I would have to go buy a revolver to shoot it out of but I am up for that.yeah, but i gotta shoot up all my 357 ammo. it's too much for these old hands. i'll stick with 38 special from now on.
Very nice shootingi tried searching for a thread specific to target practice, but could not find one.??
anyway, i was supposed to go and buy some lumber today and start repairs on my porch decking.
but it started to rain, so i went to the range instead.
i took my CZ 75B, and 50 rnds, factory S&B FMJ 124 gr.
i did have one very bad low shot, which i point out with the arrow.....

Very Nice !ok, took my repaired Kimber 2 tone to the range this morning, along with factory, 100 rds of 230 gr .45 ACP.
50 rds winchester white box, 50 rds of Federal white box.
shot at my usual 7 yards (self defense distance), and the first 2 targets were for "let's see if this works shooting"
of course, i hit the targets, just like a wild man however.
the last two targets were for more accuracy.
here is the best of that.....(just disregard the date i wrote on the top of the target, i forgot it was still June....sheesh, old age BS)

also, i just minutes ago, I emailed Kimber to compliment the gunsmith's work.
i find it easy for many of us to gripe about someone, but not always compliment them, when they deserve it.
but when someone "does me right", i give them the compliment(s) they earned
here is some of what I emailed to Kimber....(just gonna leave out personal information)
I thought it would be a good idea to compliment the gunsmith that repaired my Kimber 2 tone recently.
I took my newly repaired Kimber to the range this morning, (disregard the date on the photo of the target, I thought it was already July)
And this 1911 shoots like no tomorrow..!!
I couldn't be any more happier than I am with the skills of the gunsmith, and I highly appreciate his time, effort, skills and dedication. ( I just don't know his name)
I also appreciate the man I originally spoke to on the phone, who took down my information, and his name is "Bruce", a fine, very polite,
gentleman you have there on the phone(s).
I am attaching a photo of todays range visit, and by golly, this is what it's all about...(except screwing up today's date...lol)
Got 2 Colts here, my Colt Classic also, sold my 2 Kimber’s, so I am down a couple, but not for longi like the Colt, i now have 2 of them.
