Last weekend two guys came in with 2 guns. 1 was new, just picked up, all shiny. The owner was all excited to shoot it. He setup at target @ 7 yards, one of the 5 bullseye targets, then proceeded to make holes all over it.
He was shooting at the top left bullseye and hitting near the center bullseye when I walked over and heard him discussing with his friend that the sights are off. He was shooting awful and his friend was not much better. I asked if I could take a look at it and saw that the read sights can be adjusted for windage using a punch and hammer.
The owner suggest I try it, so I also aimed at the top left bullseye, put 5 shots in a 1″ group.
I turned to the owner and said ‘Sorry, looks like the gun is ok’.
It made the owner feel a little better that he did not get a bad gun, he just needs to practice.
I try to shoot at least 30 shots a shift, working at different distances and concentrating on double action with my revolver.
