I was at the range shooting and when I was finished my son and I walked down to the steel shooting match for revolvers only. Larry and I along with some others went to breakfast earlier that morning so we knew he was shooting and wanted to watch the master shoot. Then the question popped up. Hey Jim, yes, do you want to shoot? I haven't shot a revolver since I was about 15yrs old Larry (who is the Northwest Director of Nevada Firearms Coalition-of which I am a member), so what Larry says, it will be fun. So they asked some members/range officer etc. and they let me shoot in my first steel match. I was placed two rounds down and since I was just coming into the match of those two rounds they were counted as losses. No biggie, I was VERY nervous and just wanted to try it out.

So it was $15 bucks to enter and I only had $10 bucks. Here is my out, but not according to Larry, he slaps a 5 on the table and I'm in.

I will never forget this day and the generosity from Larry and others.

The first video, I did as Larry said and pulled the trigger easy and let the cylinder rotate to the next then paused, the pulled to shoot it well. The next two I got nervous and well, if you have shot in a match, just remember your first time/also in front of most everyone who you don't know. But after today, I find these are fine folks and can't wait to buy a revolver. I told Larry it will take some time, but I liked it.

Thanks,
Jim

Not sure about the score but I did good seeing I haven't shot a revolver in a long time and it was not even mine. 44 special I think. 2nd place isn't bad for my first match. Semi-Auto is this weekend.

Plus in the great State of Nevada, we can Open Carry-meaning we can carry a sidearm (not concealed) on our hip in public/in stores etc. Just like the old West. I'm going to get my Concealed Weapons lic soon so I can cary concealed at times. Some look at you strange but its all good, especially when you got to walmart and buy ammo w/a Colt .45 1911 strapped to your hip.
