    I'm slowly upgrading my gun collection as I age.

    Just turned 65 last week (and started shooting bullseye matches).

    This should help my scores if I practice, practice, practice and do my part.

    Happy birthday to me!

    My LGS just ordered this for me (charging $1,395 plus tax... Which I believe is a good price... I do much business there).

    A new S&W Performance Center Model 41 5.5". Should be here soon... Was in-stock at her distributor.

    Woohoo! (Now for an optics ready 1911...)

    Happy birthday!

    If you want to be a better Bullseyes shooter? Practice slow fire with a revolver in double-action only. Strong hand, weak hand, both hands.
    Then switch over to your target gun.

    Something about a long, 8 (plus) pound trigger pull, that will really exercise all the muscles you need to control, to shoot tight groups with that Model 41.

    As always, YMMV.
