    Seemed to me severing the rope with each of 3 shots beats would be the royal flush. I guess once the rope is severed, it's severed, though.


    eh...yup. I see it's "iron sights and/or triggers that break under four pounds of pull."

    Sorry folks. As you were. Disregard my entry. :eek: Back to the range for another whack.

    all three shots should be counted, imo. prevents someone from shooting 100 one-shot targets and posting the best one (legal according to the rules).

    any sight dovetailed into the slide, or backstrap, is adjustable and should be shot at 15 yards. fixed means immovable, right? what say you, cmdr?

    i keep proving to myself what a lousy shot i have become. the guns are all capable of three shots in one hole.

    ah well, it's fun.

    The adjusted/fixed dichotomy herein is drawn from standard handgun terminology; dovetailed sights lacking windage and elevation adjustment points (screws to turn, et al) count as fixed.

    tried again. incentive was another thread discussing the inferiority of the one-handed hold. the 38 was shot one-handed. i still can't shoot.

    the blackhawk load was shot first (two handed). it is very low because i aimed at the bottom of the paper not knowing how high it would shoot. it doesn't count. just wanted to see how it did. not bad.

    ok, tried it again, at the correct distance of 15 yards this time. :eek: Used my 6" K-38 (target class).

    My 1st shot might've severed the rope, so I stopped:

    In the event I didn't severe the rope with my 1st shot, I shot a 2nd target:

    looks like mr. borland has "raised the bar" at fifteen yards. now it's two shots on the rope for the win!

    nice shooting, sir.

    well, have to concede the title to mr. boreland. yavapai county has a fire restriction in place. no shooting allowed.

    i did manage to get the first shot on the rope the last time i tried. the second shot landed right next to the first. would have been good if the rope was horizontal instead of vertical.

    oh well, hope the monsoons come early this year, want that restriction gone asap.
