So my first love in handguns is the single action revolver. I love the history behind it, the myths and truths of the Old West it helped "tame", the sheer uncomplicated brilliance of its mechanics. Last but certainly not least, I shoot them well. I really enjoy my other pistols too, but the reality is that I don't shoot them as well when I measure my results against my intent. Lately, especially after conversations with MeatAxe, I've started to wonder if I could "point shoot" my semi-auto pistols as well as I can my cowboy guns, even given the different ergonomics (the classic cowboy pistols were designed for one-handed shooting, after all).
All shots were standing one-handed (I'm a rightie) with no aiming. Pistol brought up from rest and held out loosely between belt and chest. I varied my facing a little and did some minor position shifting. Some shots were cross-body, some double taps, a few triples.
3. Taurus Millennium Pro .45. 21 feet. 60 rounds. 56 on paper, 50 in target.
4. Taurus Millennium Pro .45. 35 feet. 50 rounds, 29 on paper, 17 in target.
So. Conclusions. Basically I'm satisfied that if I have to fire unaimed at minimum ranges, I'll hit what I'm aiming at. At longer ranges I need more practice, and with the little Taurus, more aiming.
But not bad for not aiming, IMO.
