Finally went Rough Riding! Yes!

First time out with the RR .22LR. She is a sweetie pie, yes indeed!

First 12 shots, maybe 5 yards

I don't know why, but I love hearing about happy Rough Rider owners. Looks like she shoots well. Some tight shooting with Mr. Smith as well. What is the Smith?

Now to see some 15-25 yard targets . 5 Yards isn't really a test for accuracy as even a smooth bore will look good at that range!

That said, my rough rider shoots well enough at 25Y, so yours probably will too. Enjoy!

5 yards isn't bad when you can't see 6 anymore. LOL!

I too think she'll shoot just fine at longer distances. I'm very pleased with the RR so far, albeit we're still on the honeymoon...

nice gun

I like Rough Riders. Their mechanical accuracy hasn't been on par with other single action .22's that I've shot in my somewhat limited experience, but they still shoot well enough for sure! I think for the price you'd have a hard time finding something better, even in the used market.

Your Rough Rider looks like a pretty nice one, like it has a nice even finish and good looking stocks/grips.

I'm glad you're happy with it and i hope you get to build a solid long term relationship with her!
