That's one of the few times I've seen the splash. Otherwise it seems to be pretty inconsistent.


get yourself a big sheet of paper or cardboard with no holes like 3x3 feet. place a target or use a marker n simply make a dark spot to aim at. shooting at this shouls at least tell you if the shots are all high/low, left. or if its all over like c3 says. might not be as fun as aiming at a can but it will give your critical information

Your High Standard Sentinel is not exactly a target gun.

It has been said that snub nosed revolvers are the hardest to hit with. Fundamentals don't change w barrel length yet, I do seem to concentrate more and especially w my follow through w snubbies.

More rewarding when you hit w a short barreled anything. SA/DA revolvers are better IMHO than the DAO models. (need trigger work - some people love them but I am not one of them ).

22 pistols are notoriously finicky about ammo preferences - keep trying new batches and w a pistol rest. You will notice a preference for one brand over others. Barrel harmonics, ammo variations per rd & good mechanics or fundamentals.

Just my .02

I was just in to see a guy I've known for years to sell him a rifle, he collects High Standards and asked if I've seen any.
Is yours a double action? One hand, two hands? It could be many things.

I tend to focus mostly on the target and the front sight,you can kind of lock in the back sight in one position in your mind then focus on the front sight and target at the same time.Its very hard to explain but once you get it-you get it and you will hit every time.As for a snub revolver,maybe try squeezing your left hand as hard as comfortably possibly without shaking(assuming your right handed)and letting your trigger hand and finger relax as you pull the trigger,I don't know if that's a real technical skill but it works awesome for me with revolvers.

You weren't going to sell any of your .35 or .366 rifles ? I have a High Standard Victor in good condition but how to get it to you is an issue...I'm working on getting a camera.
