The local club had its first Bullseye match today. I shot the .22 portion with an iron-sighted 6" Model 17 and scored 766-5x. That was enough for second place; everyone else was using some flavor of Ruger/Volquartsen Mk II/III with optics. I had gotten in quite a bit of practice, primarily to get the timing down for shooting rapid-fire single-action style. And it paid off.

It was raining at the beginning of the match and maybe some other shooters stayed home, opting to roll back into bed or kick back with some coffee and the paper. Still, I got "into the money" with a revolver and iron sights, so I'm pretty happy with that.

Congratulations. It's not the tools, it's the skill of the person holding them.
