The Cross Branded Pacemakers held their regular meeting today.  There were not enough people to hold a match.   Two of our shooters were in Texas, shooting with the big boys.  Other folds were on vacation, but after the club practice, Blue Eyed Belle decided to shoot some more, and I videotaped her. 

Regular shooters know that the stance and draw are very important.  Looking at yourself shoot is very  helpful in knowing what your're doing.  The camera doesn't lie.

For those of y'all that are curious, she's using a clone of the Colt Peacemaker, a single action revolver in .45 Colt, using wax bullet ammunition powered by shotgun primers.  The target is a 17 inch disk, 15 feet from the firing line.  On  the light, you have to cock, draw and fire the revolver and hit the target to get a time.  Today, she was shooting and hitting the target in about 8/10ths of a second.  Today, hr fastest time was 0.785, just a hair over 3/4ths of a second.

My gal is an expert with the single action revolver.
