Back in 2006 at the SHOT Show, I saw Beretta’s new 90-Two pistol. Forgive me for saying this, but I think the name is stone cold retarded. This is a different handgun than the 92, yet they are pronounced the same. Thank you Mr. Too Clever For Your Own Good… This is about as good of a name as the FN Five-seveN pistol, but at least the FN isn’t being confused with any other handgun. Brilliant move, Beretta.
Shooting those .44 Mags again today… really put the Wheel Gun itch back into me. Sure, revolvers have a limited supply of ammo on board. Sure, for most people, revolvers are slower to reload.
However, Revolvers have some other qualities that are big bonuses… They are not Ammo Sensitive like an Auto. An Auto has to fire ammo that is within a certain power range or they wont cycle. Revolvers don’t. You can shoot super light target loads, you can shoot super hot magnum hunting loads… all through the same cylinder without changing anything.
When friends come out from Hill AFB and say they want to do some shooting – we go shooting. So Mike and Tony came out yesterday, and Tony picked up a nice Savage 10 FCP topped it with a 6.5-20×44 Vortex Viper. Mike brought out the finished Crusader Broadsword. Both guns needed to be zeroed, so today, we went to the range, including WTA’s Khorne.
