    Taurus PT738 and Rossi .38 Special at the range

    The state opened a brand new rifle, pistol and archery range 35 miles away from my house. I wanted to get some range time in so I paid my $5 day pass and took my Taurus PT738 and Rossi .38 Special.

    The 738 is my EDC and the Special is for my wife but I like it too.

    I shot Federal 95 grain FMJ 380 ammo. Shot 6 clips without a single problem. No failures of any type except for my aim. 32/36 on paper, shooting as quickly as I could aim. I am new to shooting so I am still in learning mode but @ $5/day, I'll get some more time in.

    I also ran 35 bullets of RWS Match-Grade .38 Special ammo, 158gr, FMJ thru my Rossi. I admit I do prefer the feel of the Rossi .38 to the PT738. I did much better, placing 100% on paper. No failures.

    I will continue to carry my 738. I have 100% confidence it will perform if I ever need it.

    I spent most of my time on the rifle range, sighting in my new Remington 783 in .270 Win that I won in a raffle. I bought a real cheap Weaver scope for it but I was very happy with the results. I think I can get under 1" groupings with it once I get better.
    By the time you hear the gunshot, it's already too late...

    Welcome aboard. I think you may have found a new passion. Be careful. Handguns tend to multiply.
