This one won’t drop to the public until Tuesday, so enjoy the early drop here on FULL30! I have been waiting around to get my hands on this one for about a year. Well, it finally happened and won’t spoiler alert the video too much but am pretty happy so far.
Again, Dang it @CloverTac ransom rest or not ya got me convinced. I think you should take a bow.
you would be surprised at the comments i have gotten over the years when using a handgun on a rest… “you are not doing it right”. of course those people are not making videos to show me a better way are they? nope
Well, I have shot my revolver to sight in from shooting sticks and from a rest and muzzle control and grip is critical . I tell the truth when I say i have never shot a pistol from a rest but seeing you do it I realized it can be done . And I think you did a great job.
we all sorta have our ways, right? you will notice that often times i really ride recoil/flip. it looks weird to a lot of regular every day shooters but i ride the recoil as part of my follow through… another things that is very important. if you are all jerky, you will never shoot straight… well maybe i suppose, but certrainly not as good as you could otherwise
Well once I sight that puppy in and like @BrianK was saying have verified that scope or sights and gun are all sighted and fit for duty my practice comes off the bench and goes to shooting positions that will be used in the wild. Such as you did with the first rounds on the steel. I just do it backwards from the way you did it .
me doing it backwards is MORE about getting to trigger time, reactive, fun, trigger time quickly in an effort to no just have fun myself BUT to keep viewer attention. slow talk about specs, features, etc and even slow fire for groups can hurt retention,
The “correct” way is to put the wrists on the rest and let the handgun float in space. But note the parenthesis. The way you’re doing it works alot better and after using the “correct” way for a short time many decades ago I used the technique you do. It just works better as you also figured out. Just a small amount of handgun contact with the rest removes tremors and stabilizes the handgun. I never found a better way.
WV460Hunter, I don’t know if this is an option for you… I used to still hunt through my forest, for practice, not actual hunting, and shoot at “targets” that I would designate as I saw them. I’d use actual field expedient rests the same as I would if it was a whitetail I was shooting at. That was how I decided just how big a tree and how far behind the tree a deer could be for me to make the shot with my .375/06 JDJ. I probably killed lots of trees, but I had/have them in excess. Nature plants wayyy too many saplings in our forest. But they were my trees. I would never do that on someone elses land.
Lol, @BrianK it is so funny you say that I actually have done this . One of my favorite practice stances is to kneel quickly on right knee resting left elbow on the left knee that is up and then acquiring the target … I have 150 acres and I have trash Beech trees, dead trees etc… and used to do this alot with my 357 and my 44mag. As a matter of fact the 7 point buck ( not the biggest rack but hey not trophy territory where I was) but,I shot it this past hunting season was taken in just that manner went clear through that son of a gun
being familiar with a sling and different ways to use one can be helpful with various positions too. i run aross a ton of people that think a sling is just for toting a rifle (or large pistol) around, nothing more… such wrong think
Just proves great minds think alike gents.
