I don't know what to say to that. The Colt and 1911 afficionado admitting to shooting better with the 19? What's the world coming too? I'm flabbergasted.

Its not really that suprising IMO...a wheel gun just points more naturally. So it stands to reason one would shoot better with one. I am sure there are some that will argue this.

I shot autos for a LONG time, when i got my 686 i was astounded by how much better it pointed and how much tighter my groups got....

Like fmj, my groups also shrink when I move closer to the target! (j/k fmj)

I seem to shoot a little better with autos, don't know why though.

I'm good with my revolver, but amazingly to me, my mom is better. I'm better with her M&P .40 than she is though.

Ruger GP100 is on my list. As far as shooting revolvers more accurately, I have a 1970s S&W k frame .38 that is very amazing at the range. This little $250.00 revovler stands right up if not taller than my autos. Somthing can be said about a company when a 35 to 40 year old gun shoots as good if not better than a new fancy semi auto.

I just bought a Taurus Tracker, 4 inch barrel, 7 shot, vented with adjustable sights for 375$ brand new. Thing is VERY sweet. hardly any recoil at all, VERY accurate out to 32 yards, so far, and a very beautiful gun too.
