Dang, a mile is a long, long haul. I've never gone further than 600 and I thought that was long.

I am pretty lucky that I got so much flat land around me. Heck I set up my bench in the back yard and I got 200 yards to the backstop. Kind of a waste though to set up the guns for long range though because to do any hunting I need to get into the foothills and that drops the range right down.

Man a pistol and I do not get along. I do not believe I could hit the side of a barn if I was standing in the middle of it. But my wife now she can flat out shoot a pistol. Matter of fact she is asking for a 22 caliber pistol so she can plink away at tin cans.

Sigh I guess I better try and get some sleep. I need to be up in a couple of hours

I use to be pretty fair with us 6 gun.
I figured that any pop can that wandered within about 125 yards was doomed when I had my 44. Unfortunately handgun shooting is the type of skill that needs to be kept up if you want to be any good.
I haven't been doing much shooting with a handgun in a long time. I did just join a winter league 22 caliber slow fire handgun match. 10 weeks shooting once a week. I'm going to suck, but by the end of the 10 weeks I should suck less.
My only 22 handgun is a sig 1911-22 so even if I were a great shot I wouldn't be able to keep up with some of the guys with purpose built guns, and right now I'm far from even being a fair shot.
That doesn't matter. I'm only trying to make myself a better shot by doing this anyhow.

I've never owned a handgun that was anything other than protection based. When I was hunting a lot I always dreamed of hunting pigs with a 44, don't get up as often as I used to. Typically I stick to game birds and waterfowl now.

That looks suspiciously akin to a weekend, Airborne.

Handguns are one of those things that you can only be good at if you shoot a lot.
I use to put over 100 rounds per weekend through my 44. I was pretty fair back then.
Now, I'm starting on trying to get to the point of OK.

A 44 is a beautiful thing! My next one is going to be a Ruger Super Blackhawk hunter. All the quality of the Super Blackhawk, but an improved handgrip and hammer.
Of course I may get the BFR in 45-70 first!

Is this going to become another gun thread?
