Actually, the Bullseye targets are what we use for matches, and 99% of the time that's what I shoot at, unless I'm just having fun. It's always 25 or 50 yards, and it's only targets like the one I...

Well, for me, the targets are always the Bullseye B-8 target I posted, at 25 yards, and the same target but with the 8-ring also filled in with black for use at 50 yards.

When I follow that advice, I'm still "aiming at the target".
When I follow your advice, with a large white area between the sights and the bull, it's easy to go back to area aiming.

What I'm looking for is a "sub 6-o'clock" hold, so the black sights on the gun are in front of the white paper backing of the target, not in front of the black bull, and far enough away from the bull...

Aiming with Steel Sights

What I learned from when I first got a handgun back in the late 1970's, is to aim by aligning the front and rear sights properly, and NOT to pay attention to the target. Fast forward to the present,...

The High Standard might make it easier, but it is YOU who are that accurate. Chances are, if you shot their guns, you would do just as well, and they would be speechless!

Yes, it was, but the steel slights are now removed from the gun. I took a photo of the sights which is posted up above. There is no more "travel" in the down direction.

I put the barrel weight up against the barrel, stated the two screws, and tightened them equally.

I don't know if this is correct, or incorrect; it's where Roddy Toyota thought it should be. I...

I thought the slides were matched to the frames? Anyway, if you're a collector, leave the gun as-is. On the other hand, if you're a shooter, Alan's little lever makes it so much easier to move the...

When sighting below the bull, the holes hit in the middle of the bull. That's three or four inches.

Alan, good idea!

I did what you suggested, and there was no primer mix in the powder. Actually, to be more specific, there was no powder! Empty!!

I guess that explains why it didn't fire, huh?
