You might want to try using the smooth surfaced .312 inch wide trigger on your S&W. I believe it to be the fastest S&W trigger.

If the trigger reach is too long, try the Hogue rubber grips. Your middle finger will fit around the grip easier and the absence of backstrap rubber will shorten the trigger distance.

Also consider placing your grip as high as possible on the revolver. This will allow you to arc your wrist downward and take the recoil more inline with your arm. This serves to lessen the muzzle rise during recoil and cut the shot-to-shot recovery time.

Bowling pins make for great practice. They're loads of fun! They also help you develop the rhythm needed for fast, accurate shot strings. Space them one foot apart, thirty feet away.

The best front sight color for bowling pins in bright light is probably black. In dark conditions, I found that the best front sight color was "hot pink". When I shot pin matches I took a lot of kidding over my revolver's hot pink front sight, but it worked.

Thank you GB. The Mod 19 has the smooth narrow trigger but the Mod 27 has the wide grooved trigger that I absolutely hate. I believe I can get a narrow trigger from GPC or Brownells at a reasonable price and should be able to install it myself. Its really no problem reaching the trigger as the Herrett's Stocks fit my hand well. Will try the high hand grip next time at the range. Bowling pins are an excellent idea which I can practice with up at the lease. The BP's are verboten at the range and their use would get me kicked out of the club. Think it might be good to experiment with front sight color. Mail polish is cheap and the color easily changed.

Thanks again.

RIKA :)

A spring kit can be a real plus, too. For a few dollars it's worth it.

I like a white outline rear sight for faster shooting, you may want to try it. On an adjustable sighted S&W it requires a screwdriver-only change.

GB,

The Mod 27 has the white outline rear sight with a red ramp front. Really funny thing about the spring kit, after shooting the Mod 27 I found out that Dad had installed a spring kit years before. Well the joke was on me. I had to re-install the regular weight trigger return spring before I could get the trigger to move forward fast enough for me to shoot it quickly. (face blushes)

RIKA :D

The greatest thing that the M27 has going for it is the high quality of its build. It sounds like you have a pretty good set-up.

If you are right handed, the recoil will displace the revolver up and to your right, to the one o'clock position. If you are left handed it will go to the eleven.

Let your eyes follow the front sight throughout the recoil. While the revolver returns toward the bowling pin (or sihlouette), keep watching the front sight. As the revolver's front sight crosses the edge of the pin or silhouette, begin pulling the trigger for the next shot.

I can't wait to get to the range and give it a try - maybe Tuesday. Its been too long. Say, hows EChick doing with her shooting? Being a natural, I'll bet that she can walk all over GK.

She's doing great. A couple of months ago she tried an auto that she liked. Interestingly, her times with the auto were slower than her revolver times.

I have to admit being a tad jealous of her natural talent. It took me a long time to reach the point where I am. Of course whenever she beats me at something like shooting or chess, I treat her to a fine dinner and brag about her.

I have no doubt that with her revolver she could beat GK.

then you are a fool. YOU can't beat me, at anything I give a crap about, much some woman. Miculek can't beat me, using an N Frame with full charge magnums. :) I have no problem at ALL getting .18 second splits. Never did, never will, either. It's EASY,if you just have sense enough to use a properly modified SA autoloader.

Only thing you're known for is BS!
Well, Clint. It looks like you know MELVIN quiet well.

You want to watch out though, if you get to know him too well, he will put you on his ignore list. MELVIN'S ignore list is such a lonely place -- in a pigs behind. Actually it's a kind of fun place.

Isn't that right MELVIN?

There was a guy from Indiana, I think his name was Walsh, who used to hold the World Record for speed shooting. He did it using two Colt Pythons, one in each hand. I saw him on TV place his shots on two cards at 21 feet.

Hey, he shot two DA revolvers, one in each hand and shot faster than anyone else.

Nobody was able to beat him, even with an auto.

MELVIN, you keep using the word PUNK, over and over in your posts. the word PUNK, is a prison term for the inmate, that assumes the female role in male, homosexual, prison relationships. Hmmmmmm!

Do you have any comment?

On thing that I remember that armouredman used to say, was that he said you were a bitch-boy? Armouredman was a sergeant in the corrections system, wasn't he MELVIN? And didn't he supervise you while you were in prison?

Curious people want to know MELVIN.

Facts:

The World Speedshooting record was set and held for years by a guy using two DA revolvers, one in each hand.

Using DA revolvers he was faster than you with a 1911, deal with it.

so what? setpiece bs,with wussy loads, like I said. Give a top IPSC hand a PAIR of 1911's, and have him practice nothing else, he'll do BETTER, and in a fewmonths, not YEARS of practice, with a load that has MORE recoil, too.

The fact remains that I can still post Class A scores, at the National level, even on the stupid 10m+ stuff. In fact, it's dead EASY to do so with an optically sighted comp gun. Getting into the top 10% of shottists is easy. Being in the top 5, entrants, consistently, is not. The big mathes have 300+ entrants. Being 4th overall is being in the top 2%.

No you can't MELVIN, you never were a top class IPSC shooter. And that information is according to your shooting idols at IPSC. Remember the "Little out of Plomb" remark by Cooper?

You lose MELVIN, we win again, and again, and again.
