    790 fps Muzzle Velocity w/ 230gr Winchester SXT. 

    Standing supported @ 25 yrds. Not ideal POI. But, I’d hit ya. 
    Nice pizza. No anchovies.

    I'm impressed that you get that much expansion from a 230 grain bullet at 790 fps but then again, I've always had good luck with the SXTs.
    Major PF from a short barrel ~182 PF. That's nothing to sneeze at 👍

    I have avoided this post as I've never been a fan of CA. In another post I saw this revolver posted and thought of Zee. Simple gun, common cartridge and no problems with snake shot.

    RIA also makes that revolver in 9mm.

    My boy shot the Charter Arms for the first time today. Two cylinders worth of 230gr ball ammo. His first time ever shooting a .45 ACP. 

    Proud of the young man.
    Wow, me too!  Genetics don’t fail 😁
    I’m baaaaaaaaack… 😬

    Have to agree with Wambli.  Well done

    Looks like that target took a good beating. I'm guessing he enjoyed it also 👍

    He did. 10 rounds wore on his hand. I could tell he was feeling it, so we stopped. No need to push an issue into a flinch.

    Wise decision.
    Proud for both of you.
