Just back from the range, I went out today because I knew that a bunch of my brethren would be shooting their annual qualifications and the range officers always make time for those of us who want to qualify with off-duty pieces. So, I took the Model 38 that I picked up earlier this year.
LA P1 target. The only break they give us is that you're scored on the capacity of the revolver, 5 rounds as opposed to six. Everything else remains the same and you must score 80% to qualify. When all was said and done, I had shot an 86, which earned me the qualification I needed. I had 38 in the center-mass 2-ring, I had 8 in the perimeter 1-ring and I had 4 in the paper outside the scoring area. The little revolver is not hard to shoot, but it's hard to shoot well. I need a lot more time with this little revolver before I'll feel good about the little pistol, but sometimes Good Enough is good enough and this morning I qualified. That's good enough.
