I watched a guy with a S&W m17 with a Leupold scope sit at bench, sandbagged
and bust clays at 100yds every shot. Was 6" barrel and the model with full under
lug. I don't do optics on my handguns but at 100yds I can hit 10" gong from 2
hand just about every shot. Requires hold over because I'm sighted for 50' with
two and 36' the other. That's how far I can shoot in my basement. Many hundred
of rounds fired down there. I've owned several 17s other than 3 I presently own.
I haven't got a bad one yet. I was 14 when I first got a m17 NIB on a trade. I
had no intention of shooting it. I had a Single-6 and had a mental block against
DA revolvers, because of H&Rs and IJs. My Ruger S-6 was a target gun compared to them. A buddy of mine hacked on me to shoot it. I did and that 17
is still my main serious 22. Many guys who were use to low end 22 revolvers
were amazed at 17s accuracy. There are, were, many excellent 22s on the market back then. Especially autos but the m17 is one of those guns that seems
to be a easy gun for the average guy to shoot well. Anyone who can shoot a SA
well should do a lot better with a 17.
