    Do anyone else like shooting head plates?
    I am shooting 148 grn wadcutters with a S&W model 14 I bought in 1992. Starting at ready pistol. The six plates are 8” and the distance is 10 yards.

    There’s a GSSF that looks like your setup. Highly addictive! I run it at home as a modified El presidente

    Glock the plates is the stage. I don’t have reset targets. I’m using quality targets 8” plates on a cross tie that’s on cinder blocks. Yes. My neck is a little red. The only issue is retrieving the plates. Especially when shooting a 10mm or 44 mag.

    The S&W blued K frame has no equal in DA revolvers. The Python was a want I had years ago. My gunsmith threatened my life.

    Agreed !!!!!!! I had a Python that was a dream to shoot till it shot right on out of time. I went to L Frame S&Ws after that. One of my very first handguns was a 4inch Mod10. They are a true classic. Growing up and earning a living an assortment of 3inch Mod10s took good care of me for a number of years.

    I carried an L frame for many years, starting in 87. I also shot PPC, the K frame reigned supreme in that discipline. I will dig the few out fRom the safe and post pics tomorrow.
