Durrrrty Piggy Pinger

My 686 came in today.

1986

Straight to the gunsmith for inspection.

No trigger work needed.

Mounted the Match Dot then straight to the range to sight it in.

50 yd silhouettes gonna get PINGED.

I wanna ping piggies at 50 yards too but don't want to run to Oklahoma City to do it.

Feets, I live in the City and I don't understand? Should I be offended? Are you talking about picking up some girls at Walmart? Make me understand and forgive my density.

Wideners.com sells a nice set of 4 for not a lot of money.

A local welder created the swinger frame and would only take $20.

Gotta appreciate good 'ol country boys!

Could help but go back today and shoot it for the second time.

(But nothing I own compares to the M41 at 50yds.)

Rightside, I'm not poking fun at OKC fatties. I was referring to the awesome IHMSA range at the gun club. I've shot there a couple times with a friend. It's great fun but a bit of a long haul from Dallas. Living in the city prevents me from having a private range on my own land.
I had an idea to work up some 300 gr 45 Colt loads for knocking over rams but I don't have a good place to practice that stuff.

My 686SSR works pretty well on pigs, too!

Don't know yet. I'll get the meat off the bones in a day or two. Meanwhile, it's kept cold.
I generally cook the meat in the crock-pot and make pulled pork.
