    Looks like a real good shooter. What model was it before you started?

    Classic PPC gun. Cool.

    Nice but will it shoot 1000 yds?

    Nice. I love the Model 10, just like they come from the factory, but I could get used to something that shoots that well.

    With those iron sights...Certainly:jester:

    A .22 LR box says warning..... Range 1 or is it 1 1/2 miles. I think a .38 will travel 5000 feet or so if fired at the right degree of angle (45 deg)????

    Not to hit anything like a target, but I think it will go that distance.

    Nice PPC gun! And a helluva shooter, too.
    Concealed carry is for protection, open carry is for attention.

    A match implies competition.

    What all did you do? Just the barrel and the rib/sights? How many yards were you at to shoot that group? Loads for that group?

    OK, thanks, I thought maybe you just put on a new barrel and shot that group, nicely done:up:
