Snuck out to the range today

Postby desertrider » 12 Dec 2017 19

Finally made some time to get to an indoor range to try out my new to me Chiappa 44 mag lever. I decided to make it a lever gun and revolver day, well, except for my Ruger 22/45 that stowed away in my bag.

Image

The handguns were fired at 7 yards and the carbines at 15 yards. This pic shows the target at the 15yd mark.

Top left was with the 22/45, top right with the Single Six, center with the GP100 at both 7 and 15yds, bottom left with Redhawk at 15 yds, and bottom right Chiappa at 15 yds. This pic was before I shot the R92, so those hits aren't shown.

A few observations from today. My Chiappa requires a forceful and deliberate cycle of the lever to seat the round into the chamber, pussyfootin' results in a light primer strike.The Chiappa with its 16" barrel kicks like a mule compared to my .357 R92, I need to remember to take more ammo, and I shoot like I have Parkinson's and crossed eyes. :lol:

It was still fun though! +guns

The lever on the left looks to have a rear folding ladder sight.
I like it.
I like them all actually.

I take it those Crown Royal bags were to hold the pistols

Or were they range refreshments? :)

Might explain the shooting :D

Yup, the Chiappa has a ladder sight. It was a pleasant surprise to me, I actually like it too, can't wait until I get a chance to go shooting outdoors so I can try it out at some distances further than a measly 15 yards.

I really enjoyed shooting it yesterday on its first outing since I bought it last month. Considering finding a butt pad to make it a little more pleasant shooting. It reminded me of the kick of my Mauser and Mosin's. I'm also looking forward to rolling some lighter loads for it, I was shooting factory ammo that was a tad hot in my opinion.

I have that sight on my rossi 44 mag and 357 mag.
I think they are my favorite style of sight.

I know we're supposed to be mature and never joke about drink and shoot but that was hilarious

But where are you folks finding these sights? Marbles doeant sell them as far as i can tell.

Only one i can find is on Steves Gunz and its like $120+. Any recommendations?
