6" Diamondback in 22? Looks nice. Which I still had mine...but yours looks just like my Python except that I put a Rubber grip on mine. I have had positive experiences with both Charter and Taurus. My almost 20year old PT92 stainless match has less the 15 fails in the time I have it. Only thing I added was a Bar-Sto barrel about year 2000...had a Charter undercover for about 10 years, sold it for $150 and 5-40 rd. Mini-14 mags and 150 Rds. Of Lake City ammo...
I've been waiting on my charter Pitbull 9MM...

Thanks! That Diamondback is my baby. All of these guns were given to me by family.
Also thanks for sharing your experience.

I'd love to but I highly doubt there's anything like that close to here. I live in the boonies.

Deals can be found if you shop around, and know what to look for.
Very nice! Is it a .357 or just .38+p?

charter, hands down, decent snubbies, though the lightweight ones can be a bit snappy.

Zombie shooters association is a spin off of IDPA. Zombie matches are a lot of fun. ZSA matches are an introduction to competitive shooting. Many of the ZSA matches are fun matches. Virtually all the competitive rules are waived in a fun match so shooters can shoot a 22 LR or use their long guns. Safety rules always remain in effect. Many master shooters use the fun matches as practice.

One local gun club holds a USPA match once a month for shooters who are new to competitive shooting. Many expert shots show up at these matches to give one on one instruction to new shooters for free.

I live in the sticks myself. There is a match within 50 miles of my house four days a week. The best facilities are in the outlying areas. Find some fun in your area!

You can do a lot of drills at home that will help you in competitive and self defense shooting.
