My 8yr old son shot some .38 specials through it and hit the bullseye on the first shot at 5yrds!!! He's a natural.
It's that long, heavy trigger pull. I'm going to have a new spring set put in mine this week.

Don't get discouraged. The best investment you could make for that revolver is a set of snap caps. Dry fire the heck out of it in DA while maintaining your sight picture. Practice switching targets, obtaining sight picture and maintaining it throughout your pull(s). Just keep it up and gradually you will get more consistent and the gun keeps on bonding to you.

I've heard great things about aftermarket trigger options, but I haven't got around to any of that and still keep improving with this gun. I can now shoot it proficiently weak handed also.

Lots of practice though. . .

I bought some snap cars for it the first day I got it. I'm not giving up yet, I'm going to shoot the crap out of it.
