    Let me introduce you to Bertha. She is short, round, fat, loud, and always lets you know she around:

    Now, Bertha has been one of my favorite wheelies for some time, but she has, or had, some flaws. Her bark with hot loads was a bear for the web of my hand and I thinking I was macho enough for her refused to abandon her wooden clogs. Well, I finally conceded and bought her some nice rubber sole shoes. She also had an adjustable sight and being just like a good woman, not wanting a man to tell her what to do, she would change where she was adjusted to of her own volition. I think it was payback for all the heavy recoiling loads I feed her. So, I bought her a new hat made by C&S; she wears it well: :)

    With the new rear sight it groups low, so I had to compensate. Here is a group at 10 yards with 44 mag Fiocchi 240 grain XTP loads. You can see the shots before I compensated for the new rear sight

    Bertha, from one woman to another, you are truly beautiful.

    Be good to your man. ;)
