  • Finally got the para expert commander to the range for an extended session.

    I had ran a mag here and there in it since I've had it. My daughter came in for a visit this past weekend and guess what she wanted to do. So off the barn we went. We put almost 300 rounds down the pipe and not one single issue. I couldn't be happier with the pistol it's a shooter for me anyways. Plenty accurate for self defense. The sights are great I don't have to stand the front proud just line them up and shoot. This is the first gun I've owned with just a single colored bead on the front and good lord what I have been missing. I can shoot it a little faster and little more accurate. I'm sure with some serious practice I could get even better. Bonus i also put a 100 rounds of .38 in the Tarus CIA .357 stubbie and it did just fine for what it is. All pistol rounds shot at 10 yards.

    Ok the picture of the target rotated for some reason. The far left shot is the top it should be in the 12oclock position not 9oclock.

        What made you choose the Taurus over a S&W or Ruger? I'm thinking about getting another small revolver.
        I got the Tarus in a trade. I only had 175 in the shotgun I traded for the .357. Haven't tried it with .357 yet. I noticed Walmart had Barnes x bullets for .357 for 20 bucks i will get some soon last trip I spent 125 on ammo so held off them for now. And I've only ran 38 130 grain fmj target in it so far but it's reasonably accurate with a 300lbs trigger pull lol! In all honesty at 10 yards home defense range it's fine for me. I can keep them in the within a paper plate which should do the trick. If I had to make the choice you were thinking about inwould have to shoot one to make my mind up.

          My pics also rotate when I download them from my phone, don't know how to correct it.

            I have a sweet S&W mod-60 38/357 2.5" Bbl 22oz SS, It's a J frame on Geritol!
            I run 38+Ps 130gr Winchester Ranger. NO seeds to shot 357-M out of it!!!

              Good shooting and it sounds like a fun day. With this nice weather I'm dying to get to the range myself. Just seems like there is way too much to do. No one ever told me I'd be so busy in retirement. I've got to go turkey hunting, I've got to get my boat on the water and get some stripers, I'm dying to swing a golf club. I can't wait to build a bench rifle. I've got a deer mount to repair, I've got knives that will rust over if I don't finish them... I could go on...

              Thanks for this post milldawg. I am going to give top priority to tuning up my friend's three long range rifles. I am glass bedding and developing tuned loads to optimize each of them for him and then we will drive down state to enter a competition or two. I will do that right after turkey hunting, the NRA annual meeting and the NFL draft so I can get to the range.

                  It's tough all right. I worked 50 to 100 or more hours a week for over 50 years for the opportunity to do this. I just can't believe I'm still alive to enjoy it. I never thought that would happen.

                    Why does Bubba constantly corrupt a post by inserting an irrelevant post that changes the thread. He does that all the time.

                    I have found that a riding mower takes less of a toll on crippled people, but you get more exercise with a pushing style reel mower.
