Look Familiar

My wife's little 32 target pistol. Sure looks like it was patterned after a Luger.

My pistol is a little different, I designed it and it is a 32 also. I was 69 when I shot this.

Looks like somebody put that "8" on there for me!!!

Those are neat little smokers thanks for sharing. What size of a charge do you use in them?

I don't really like to get into charges. Too many variables. Let's just say I get
700 shots to a can of Swiss made Black Powder. The load chronographs
1000 fps. We use the same load in all pistols. Two of the pistols have Green
Mt. Barrels, two have Ed Rayle, One has a DeHauss. They all shoot the same.
Wife shot two 99's at Friendship last year back to back.



This is at 25 yds. One hand hold un-supported

Who makes a pistol like your wife's .32?
How much are they?
It looks like the perfect type of range pistol for us that would go well with our .22.

PM me and I will give you his number. It is made by John Mazoun of SC.
He Normaly makes the barrel longer. The wife wanted this size. Last
Price was 425.00 Trigger is fully adjustable. Matter of fact, it has the best
Trigger I have ever felt on any pistol I have ever had in my hand. You just
Wish if off. Our 14 year old daughter has one of his also

She won the JR National Championship when she was 13.



They both did real good in 2011. Mother & Daughter make quite a team.

look at a Walther P-38 and see where Beretta got the idea for their '951' pistol, which would later evolve into the 92F...

Daddy's little darling in action at the Nationals last year at Friendship. I'm in the
Blue coat watching. Look at her stance. She is 14.

I do believe that 10 Ring precision out of San Antonio TX made a flinter also.



I wish I could shoot as good as your wife. I tend to aim and squeeze the trigger and suddenly the bullseye isn't in perfect position so I stop squeezing and then I get tired and the harder I try to squeeze, the more the gun shakes till I finally jerk the thing into the 5 ring.

This last weekend, I outshot both my 10 Ring percussion and my 10 Ring flinter with my 1860 Colt open top army, a third generation model with Sam's signature on the backstrap. I reckon the fact that I had to aim at an area under the target frame to hit the bullseye kind of made it easier to just focus on keeping the sights aligned while increasing pressure on the trigger 'till it fired. Not a single shot in the white part of the target, a ten and nine nines. I was amazed not at only how good I shot but at how easy it was, even with that hard trigger.
A lot of this game is psychological and I find that I beat myself.

You are correct. It is better really to shoot at a blank piece of paper. I wish we
Could turn the targets backwards. I will tell you that my wife is not normal.
Mebby she really is from somewhere way out there. Last year at Friendship
The wind was really bad 20-25 mph. Everybody was just shooting practice
Targets. She puts up her 50 yd target and proceeds to shoot it. A 87. If that
Wasn't bad enough, she puts up another one in the very next relay and shoots
Another 87. The boys were just shaking their heads. I was spotting for her in
The 100 yd pistol match a few years back. She was going into her 9th shot.
I told her if she shoots a "10" she will win the match without shooting the 10th
Shot. Yep, you guessed it, right into that 3 inch dia 10 ring. 100 yds one hand
Un-supported. Got to be the best shot I ever seen. You ought to be glad your
Down there in Texas. Stay away from her. She has been the cause of more than
One to give up shooting.

Here are my Brady pistols, for the TMLRA men's pistol match in Brady TX.



I just got the revolver and am still getting familiar with it. It's a '58 Remmy with a 9mm barrel on it and the cylinder has been shortened and bushed to accept .360 roundballs and the trigger has been honed and tuned to where I think it nearly beats the 10 Rings triggers.

Maybe I'll learn to shoot them someday.

Bet I know who did your revolver. Rob did the same thing to mine. Those 9 mm
Barrels will shoot. I shot a 87 at 50 yds at Friendship for 1st two years ago.
Wife has shot a 92 at 50. Hornady don't make the 360 swegged anymore.
I have a .360 Rapine.. Your pistols look very nice.

Luckily, I already own a Lee mold for .360 roundballs. I have been shooting .360 patched roundballs in my GM barreled .36 caliber TC Hawken rifle for a long time. My .360 rb inventory is starting to get low, time to run some more balls.

.360 roundballs also work quite well in .38 Special or .357 Magnum cartridge revolver loads when you just want to do some plinking or target shooting.
