Yesterday was Range Day,

and a good one it was.  When the wind finally started to blow it was light, nothing to mess with things.  Got a bit warm, but for July it was downright nice.

Tried the Model 92 out at 50 and 100 yards with some loads using the Hornady 140-grain FTX bullet.  They shoot well in the Sharps, and have some of a box left, so put them together.  The one problem with these: for them to work in a revolver or repeater, you have to shorten the cartridge case, that polymer tip makes them a bit too long otherwise.  They shot well; the problem with accuracy testing is that rear buckhorn sight and my eyes.  Otherwise some general practice, including trying a version of the dry-fire drill with a .22 and ammo.  I've been working that drill a few days per week, and it does make a difference.
