Coincidence, or what?

Time and money meant that most of my competition shooting was in January and February and since then I've not shot much. My sense of fun meant I did those matches with my Redhawk, running .44Spls.

I had only shot one match with my CZ SP-01 way back in early Jan. Until yesterday, that is!! Match size meant that they had no Revolver category as they are not very popular here, so I took my CZ.

Now; I normally, consistently come in the middle to lower half of the squad in final scores, with decent points but low speed.

Yesterday, my first DA/SA 9mm match after a spate of DA only .44Spl matches, I came 7th out of 24 with a score of a smidge over 75%.

It may not sound like much, but it was for me.

Could this be the DA shooting I was doing with the Redhawk showing in my SA shooting with the CZ?

I'd like to think so!

It could be Mr. Pond. Just think how good you might get with your CZ if you shoot some matches with your snubby!

I have been struggling to find a legit reason to buy a .454 Alaskan!

Revolver shooting if done correctly demands more attention to trigger control. That in turn leads to better shooting all around.
