Printed up targets last night in order to...promptly forget to bring them.
This thread is making it evident I'm deficient in surplus pistols.
That's better than driving 2 hours for a hunt and remembering that you forgot to bring the keys for the locked cases. Ahh well, I didn't shoot one and ruined a pelican locked case to get at the other one. I have since replaced all key locks with combinations.
Mine was carried by Teddy Roosevelt himself during the war; the man at the gunshop told me so, but told me to keep it a secret.I have only the Mauser Broom handle and it is insanely inaccurate. It could be the cheap Prvi Partisan I am feeding it.
I do have a Ruger Old Army but I can't confirm that it was used during the Spanish American War. The serial # doesn't check out.
Been dry firing as often as I can to get a better feel. Have played with the idea of removing the mag safety to see if it improves the trigger.

Shooting some handloads I've been messing with...2 cylinders worth (14 shots) except the 3rd target where I only had 10 rounds left. I haven't shot this old girl much in one sitting so it took me until the 3rd target to really figure out the sights and especially the trigger pull.
Targets shot at about 10-12yds (give or take...)
Target 1 - 85 (the 6 ring fliers hurt this one)

Target 2 - 83 (not great, had more fliers...)

Target 3 - 85 (too bad I didn't have 2 full cylinders for this one...I was finally figuring out the trigger)
