This was shot at the Nationals at Friendship two weeks ago. It was shot using the one hand hold.
I did not shoot it. I just happend to be walking by and seen it being shot by my old friend Peter
from England. Just had to get a picture . I know what he uses. He is about 67 or so. He does this
all the time.

Well, good show on his part!

I'm planning to head to the local LEC and try out the indoor range Tuesday  ;D. Never shot in one before, but, from what I've been told, it's a good thing I use T7!  8)

I plan to shoot one or two groups from the 1858 Remington and Ruger Old Army.

That Hege Remmy is built extremely well.  Better than any other historical percussion revolver. But, one hand hold at 25 yards, that's good shooting also. Phil, haven't they changed the supplier of rough forgings and FWB(?) no longer builds them?

Curious, I've read of some folks having the barrels on the Pietta or Uberti revolvers replaced with faster twist rates similar to modern day revolvers. Anyone on here done that?
