Hey pistoleros, just take a look at those scores. Assume these are the usual @25m, possibly also single handed - using the same size targets as for the 25m cartridge guns (occasionally also used for 15m...) and with rear sights that are often nothing more than a slot in the frame, front sights "anything but" a Patridge design - as per the original.

Now that is some shooting to aspire to.

Hi RB,

It was a nice shooting competition, we really had fun. Personally, I prefer shooting double handed, but I must start practicing single handed also Tongue.  As you said, shooting these guns is very challenging especially when considering the deficiencies that are found, like sight acquisition and reloading but all in all that's the fun part Wink Prosit goes to the orgonizers and keep it up!

 I've known Philip since the seventies. We were founder members of Round Table Three (Malta). He was always courteous, polite and extremely helpful especially when we spoke of our common interest. It was always so interesting listening to him speak about historical weapons and accessories. My humble opinion is that we should make this an annual event. If so, I will also
sponsor the 2009 competition. A deserving tribute to such a gentleman!
