Range day was a balmy 26 degrees with tropical breezes of 20 mph. Not surprisingly, I had the range to my lonesome. Shooting the 3.5" PC gun was done at 50 feet for 3-shot groups. I fired double action, as this actually helped me “hold” onto the target better by not anticipating recoil. Plus, I wanted to shoot the way it would be done in the wilderness, if ever charged by something mean and nasty, meaning three shots were fired in roughly three seconds.

Surprisingly, my 3-shot groups went between 1.5" to 2" average. Did my hands sting? Yeah, sorta’. But it wasn’t unbearable.
