    Duty gun cold. Well, shooting wise. I had just wrapped up a coaching session with a shooter. 96 degrees....Alabama humidity.

    Then I ran a Dobbs/Bolke Advanced Super Test. Getting more drills incorporated on the shot timer.

    Regards.

    Today was 22 day. I've been liking my new S&W 43c revolver. I had shot it before and could mostly keep my hits in the down zero of an IDPA target at 25 yards. Today, I made several attempts at a B-8. Lots in the 80's with my best an 89. It's pretty hard to keep my elevation consistent with the big dot front sight. The surprise was my 1 attempt with my S&W M&P 22 Compact. 94, 2X. I shot a 95, 3X with my Ruger MKII with an old Tasco red dot on it. The dot kept going out. Probably needs some attention.
    How many rounds through the 43c and have you had any issues with 22lr cases deforming and locking up the cylinder or being difficult to extract? I'm looking at the 43c myself but came across a few negative reports about it.

    I don't keep track but I'm guessing between 500 and 1000 rounds. I've shot Mini Mags, Win 36 grain hollow points, and a few types of standard velocity. I sometimes have a little sticky extraction, but I can always extract just using my thumb. I think you have to keep the chambers pretty clean. I'm very impressed with mine. I have heard horror stories about current S&W but mine is fine. My A Holster just came today and my 43c is in my pocket. My speed loader fits nicely in one of the side pockets of my Duluth pants and a 10 round speed strip is in my back pocket. Whats not to like about 26 rounds of Mini Mag goodness on board. I have some Velocitors ordered to see how they do.

    My wife shot about 48 rounds through it the other day. Like me, she is good for 5 or 10 rounds of 38's through an Airweight J.

    I'm pretty impressed with the 25 yard accuracy, and a cylinder dump at close range is a blast.

    I'll give mine 5 stars out of 5.

    Reading this thread inspired me to start working on 25 yard B8s this spring. I did four double-action groups with my 4.2" GP100 yesterday.

    Hit the range with @NickA and @JM Campbell. It was HOT. Too hot for drills in the sun. B-8s from the shade weee the order of the day.


    Got the DPP RE-zeroed after a warranty trip to the mothership.

    Best of the day - 99-7x with stock 17.4 MOS and DPP. Ammo was Magtech 115 grain fmj.

    JM had a 97 with his M&P CORE 9mm.
