Hey rman, That's a nice group. What range was it shot at?

I will have to agree, nice group rman. RRR70, that is a great picture of you shooting. Who ever took the picture had some great timing or good luck.

Thanks. To get this one shot my brother almost filled up a memory card.

I'd like to say 25 yards, but I'll fess up. It was only 10 yards with Remington 125 Gr. JHP .38 Specials. It's a nice little gun, but I need to round the sharp edges on the trigger. It gets a little hard on the trigger finger when I shoot 50 rounds or so double action. Is it normal for these to be a little on the sharp side?

Every Ruger revolver I have has a trigger with an incredibly sharp edge. The worst is my 6" SS GP that is almost like shooting a pair of scissors. They are a bit like motorcycles, though - when a lot of guys get a new bike they immediately customize it in some way to make it uniquely theirs. Just knocking off the sharp edge makes a world of difference.

That's still good.
BTW, Mine seems to shoot a bit to the right as well, but I'm sure that's just me.
Oh yeah, They all seem to have sharp edges. When I pick up a Dremel Tool, I plan on rectifying that.

My SP trigger is also a big harsh, but I'd be very nervous taking a Dremel to the edge. Do you just take a a drum bit to the edge, than buff it back out?

I'm no expert at that, as I've never done it before, but I think I'll go at it very careful and lightly when I do. After I ahve searched the best method out online first that is.

Just think - never another FTF, FTL, FTE, FTAnything. Not picky on ammo, easy to clean, clean simple lines. Careful, you just might get hooked.
