I'll put that on my "to-do" list. I haven't got through the material I've ordered so far.

It's a good fun book. Short too. Just have your SP101, XDM and some snap caps handy while reading.

Nice shooting with the XDm and on target with the ruger. I wouls expect the same thing and be pretty happy wih that target. Are you shooting off hand or from a rest?

The first two things I would try with the Ruger:

1. Dry fire it and see if your sights "snap" up when the trigger breaks. If so, you are still having an issue with the DA trigger pull and/or the way the gun fits in your hand and/or the way you are gripping the gun (revolvers should be gripped even higher than autos).

Dry fire is free and you don't have to wait till the next time you're at the range.

2. Let someone else shoot the gun, preferably someone you know who is proficient with a revolver. If you have the opportunity, let several people shoot it. If everybody who shoots that gun shoots high, it's most likely the gun.


BTW, does it shoot to point of aim if you shoot it single action?

All good points. I will definitely check this out.
