Ned's Shooting Thread

NNNN Senior MemberPosts: 22,935 Senior Member
Shot some .45 acp in the Blackhawk, not shooting well with HP; ball on the other hand shoots to point of aim.

The front sight is hard to see, I painted it today.

Might have to try some 45 long cold in it tomorrow :uhm:

    What about the thread?
    Were you shooting it in your pistol? Shooting at it? using it to pull the trigger?
    How do you mount a front sight on a thread?
    Wouldn't dye work better than paint on it?

    The big question is "At what range was Ned shooting thread?" Thread shooting could be quite challenging...

    Maybe the thread Ned is shooting is an 'Irish Pennant' on one of his uniforms. Those things will get you gigged on an inspection. :silly:

    You guys cottoned on pretty quick.
    At least you didn't say "I told you sew"
    Quit needling Ned, its his yarn, let him tell it and stop trying to stitch him up or he will go sit in the corner and silk.

    Did not shoot today, got hot then the temp dropped to 88 and the sea breeze line was trying to produce a T-storm.

    Nothing happened.

    While I haven't put in the time needed, so far I can't hit the broad side of a barn with this. Maybe our eye's just suck!

    Move real close and see where it goes then move back in stages, maybe it is something like the front sight is too tall or your pushing the gun with your trigger pull.

    I am thinking the grip angle is not helping either, but I have only put about 50 rounds through it and was not very consistent. I need to give it some more range time to get it figured out.

    Maybe so, I do not recall ever handling one like that.

    I took the Blackhawk out today with the 45 colt cylinder in and it shot better with HP's, but, not good enough.
    Could be it likes 250 gr HP's better than 230 gr HP's.

    I shot at a spot on a log and found it was hitting a little left, so I moved the sight and it seemed better.

    I need to .45 acp again and see.

    Chiggers, ticks, several kinds of mosquitoes, deer flies, yellow flies, and several kinds of wasps, and those ground dwelling yellow jackets. Then there's rattlers, copperheads, and cottonmouth snakes! :silly: I love the South!

    Have fun with the .45ACP cylinder. New gun, so you two got to get acquainted with one another!

    Worst I've seen mosquitoes was in Minneapolis during early summer of '68

    Everyone had to wear a rope around their waist attached to an anchor to not be carried away and drained.

    I remember summer camp on the NC coast where the mosquito netting on the windows was TWO pieces of barbed wire ...

    You could have just moved the log :tooth:

    Funny how same make/model/caliber/bbl length will prefer different loads.

    Today, I braved the yellow flies and shot .38 spl with a Ruger Police Service six.

    Shot well enough, it is not a tgt handgun, but, center mass it will do the job.

    Shot some Rem HP's today, regular loads, at least not special SD billed .45 ACP ammo.

    The Blackhawk shot real well after the sight adjustment.

    Water was down, none running over the forest road. As a result, some jack wagon got out there and made a fire in this heat and burned my
    section of log I used as a tgt stand.

    Left an empty wiskey bottle and some MRE related trash, I cleaned it up.

    Yellow flies were still a pain.

    Good to hear the Blackhawk is limbering up and shooting good groups. :up:
    Sorry to hear about the combustion of the target stand by the idiot. Maybe he was trying to smoke out the yellow flies with waterlogged wood?
    Which reminds me of something I did way back when to keep people away from one of my favorite fishing spots. I got three BIG rubber snakes that looked like copperheads and placed one under the log section I used as a seat, and tied the other two in bushes to left and right of the log seat. They looked real enough that I checked to make sure before I sat down! :silly: :tooth:

    It shot real well today on zombie jugs, as if radar controlled.
