My time on the 25 Yard timed fire was 2.71, not 2.17, my friend corrected me after reading my post. It wasn't from the leather, but from a Uncle Mike's Nylon, Model 21. To be honest, I have been practicing a LOT with a huge amount of free ammunition I got from a very good friend. I probably would have a tough time duplicating it. It was one of my "Hot" day's.
