Shopkeeper

hey folks - finally figured out my Shopkeeper (only took a little over two bricks)... never realized how important one's grip, eyesight, breathing, and trigger pull are in single-action shooting, especially with a short barrel and iron sights...

i used the cheapest .22LR i had on hand: Aguila Super Extra LRN:



anyway, had a lot of fun punching 4" bulls at 5 yards... i'm going to keep working on my shooting and will incrementally increase the distance once i feel comfortable with accuracy...

shooting my Shopkeeper is very relaxing yet challenging at the same time... great little revolver

For the price, Aguila SuperExtra Standard Velocity (the 40gr lead nose) is an amazing value.

When sighting in a rifle at 25 yards with it, all of the bullets were going through the same hole.
