    There's truth to the phrase, "all it takes is practice".

    Saturday I had an appointment with the range owner to initiate Federal tax stamp paperwork for an SBR I'd bought.

    But before I left the house, the little voice of reason whispered in my ear, "Take ammo for the Agent".

    Ran 50 rounds through it, triple tapping my anatomical targets at 5-7yds.

    Of all the shooting I do, I don't think anything is more satisfying than raising the D frame, and rapidly putting two to the center of COM and one in the snot slot.

    It's even more fun when the other lanes are packed with polymer, and you know they've noticed that Mr. Happy Face has a third hole in his nose. :D

    Jim Badger makes them custom for $69.95. Notice how he cut down the top finger groove so speedloaders clear better. Didn't charge a dime extra.

    Very nice Agent. I remember the thread a while back when you got it. Shooting one or any other snubbie revolver always brings interested parties over to check it out! People always like to see the Smiths but, when I get out one of my Detective Specials or the Cobra, it really brings them over. Have to say.. No, it is not for sale" all the time!

    Really like yours for carry!

    I love Colt revolvers.
    They shoot as good as they look.

    I've got one with finish almost as bad as yours was. What did it run you to get refinished, if I might ask?

    I see the bobbed hammer, did you keep the SA notch and have the top of the remaining hammer checkered so you might still shoot SA?

    thanks

    It works very safely SA. Online forum member did the bobbing and checkering. In fact, I shoot it SA every time I take it to the range, usually a dozen times.

    The DuraCoat job cost about $20.

    Nothing to it: mix it correctly, thoroughly degrease the gun, fully allow it to dry

    How much did you disassemble the pistol? Just take the cylinder off? Do you spray this everywhere you can see (not inside the cyl or bbl, i assume?).

    That's just what I was thinking for my hammer.

    Ya gotta love a nice snubbie! Your bobbed hammer got me up to go look at my SP101. Just not the shape to have it bobbed like your Colt. To bad.
