CVP - If you want to try precision shooting, try rimfire benchrest. I've been doing it for almost 20 years. You fire one shot at each 1/4" bullseye at 50 yards, but wind, mirage, ammo, rifle, and bench technique all try to make you miss. Winners seldom get less than 23 out of 25 bullseyes, then the X-Count is all-important. After that, ties are broken by the first bull missed, then by the first X missed.

It's probably the most difficult shooting game, but equipment is probably more important than shooter technique. It's a money pit.

After you try rimfire benchrest, you'll be very happy to get lousy groups with your snubbie, after all that kind of gun was not meant to shoot targets, but bad guys at very short distances...maybe two yards!
