The older I get, the more I seem to enjoy the wheelguns!
Took my Taurus 669 out on the Fourth and just enjoyed it soo much! Like my 851, it is no longer made but I think is one of Taurus' best. I bought this in 2006 (new old stock).
My first shot confirmed that the sight were on
(Nothing worse than Nazi Zombies shufflin' around on a Holiday!) I then emptied the rest of the first cylinder on steel (@16 yards):
Love that glint of sun on the barrel there.
I shot 50 rounds of 357mag -
Underwood Ammunition - 158g- FMJ
and 100 rounds of 38 Special:
J&J Ammunition - 125g - PHP
Underwood Ammunition- 125g - FMJ
Everything ran without a hitch! I had a self sealing target (cube) on a post at 16 yards (so that it would fall off when hit), steel at 16 yards, a bowling pin at 26 yards and an 8" steel plate at 42 yards. I had a couple of perfect runs where I would knock down the cube, put one on steel (16yds) , knock over the bowling pin and then put the last three on steel out at 42 yds. It was a fun challenge with some target variety. Here is the steel out at 42 yards:
I have not put a lot through this gun - 320 rounds of Magnum representing six different loads and 485 rounds of 38 Spcl representing eight different loads - but I think I will start breaking it out more often! Oh yeah, I had to go back to the Zombie....like the movie said -"Doubletap"
