Default I love my Model 27-2

A buddy and me took our daughters out to the range yesterday evening for a little fun. Jeff had just gotten a Mosin and wanted to shoot it, and I had picked up a box of .357 Magnum to put through my Model 27.

We had exhausted our paper targets and went down range to see what we could find to plink. We found a plastic spray can cap & some pieces of clays (about one quarter to one half the size of an unbroken clay) and we set them up on a piece of wood. We went back about 75 yards and Jeff sighted in his Mosin.

He nailed the plastic can cap.

I thumbed back the hammer of the Model 27 and let one fly. Much to my surprise, I obliterated the clay piece on the far left.

"Betcha can't do that twice." Jeff said.

I did it again, this time with the middle piece.

"Well, then."

And then I hit the third one.

Don't ever go back to the range. You done shot up your lucky quota already!!

Seriously, if the feller behind the sights is capable, the 27 sure is.

That's mighty good shooting with any handgun.

Careful, you will have your friend hooked on S&W and that is real addictive.

What you need to do is go to a public range and bring the 27 with you and then start every sentence with "I'll bet you $20....."

Saw a guy knock a empty .410 shell off a branch at 50 yards with a High Power once. Don't know if he hit the shell, or branch, but I was impressed.
