Default GP100 at range

Went to range today finally (crappy weather) to zero in my new GP100.


The virgin revolver fresh in the case.


Started with factory loaded 158gr lead SWC 38 special from Georgia Arms. The shots started at lower left and progressed to the inner circle as I adjusted rear site. Shot 3 groups of 6 rounds.


Changed targets and used 158gr FMJ reloads from bulkammo.com. These are made by MBI. I actually like these rounds, even though the lead appears to shoot tighter groups.

Oh, yeah -- shot a squirrel too!


(the leg shot was me "pulling" the shot.

Thanks for sharing rsfrid! Good shooting and as a fellow GP owner, I know just how fun it is to throw lead with! Only problem is having enough ammo on hand, I always seem to run out early no matter how much I bring, sorta like my checkbook, "Whaddya mean my accounts overdrawn, I still have checks!!" What distance were you at?

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

Approx 10 yards from bench to targets.
