    I am reminded on a story about a electrician that answered a service call by a homeowner because the power was out in his home. The electrician went down in the basement and had the power back on in 10 minutes.

    When the electrician handed the homeowner a billfor $75.00 the grateful homeowner asked the electrican what he did to fix the power outage. The electrician replied he just replaced a fuse. The homeowner became angry stating the bill was outrageous and demanded a itemized list of parts and labor.

    So the electrician gave the homeowner the following itemized bill;

    New fuse; $1.00

    Knowing which fuse to replace; $ 74.00

    Since you're cross-dominant, have you tried shooting it with your weak hand?
    Every shooter should learn to shoot weak handed. You never know when you'll need to.
    I think I'd get it adjusted.


    Jaymo,

    Check out the target with the control Model 10 in Post #15 shot with same pair of grips and same rest. While the shooter undoubtly needs more practice at the range (only all 10's and no X's. Actually I shoot better without a rest but I was trying to eliminate as many variables as possible) I think it establishes the problem lies with the gun.

    So I take it that you'd rather not have a go at replacing the fuse.... :D

    Fair enough. As Harry Calahan so aptly put it "a man's gotta know his limits".

    I guess I've just done too much home shop wood and metal working for too long. All my solutions gravitate to doing things myself.

    Look at the bright side. You might be able to kill a snake with snakeshot at three feet.
    It could really be worse for you.
