    Range Report - Final - Heritage Rough Rider .22LR (with attached target)

    I decided to unwind a little bit after a very stressful week. I went to a new gun range (meaning new to me) called Defender Shooting Sports, click for their web site here: Defender Shooting Sports Indoor Shooting Range. This is in Lexington, S.C... pretty much around the corner from me (give or take). A really great place, nice folks there... they showed great professional courtesy to me. They are also a FFL, and they carry new and used guns.. I also think they do "trades" as well.. I need to look at the selection of firearms next time time I visit.

    This is the 3rd time that I fired the Heritage Rough Rider .22LR Single Action Revolver, Taurus owns this company.

    My first review, I was incorrect.. .. as noted by other reviewers on Youtube and elsewhere, some of these revolvers shoot a little bit high to the left or right or a bit low to the left or right. After firing over 150 rounds (give or take) I found that she fires a bit high to the right, but using good old kentucky windage, I was able to center her in... and I know the correct "spot" now. I also know that with the standard non-adjustable sights, I could shave down the front sight on one side.. but I'm just going to leave it alone for now. This was from about.. 15 yards.. again give or take. Not too bad for my older eyes. I was using Federal Bulk lead round nose 40 grain .22LR standard velocity, 1200fps ammo. No duds at all, they all went down range. Also to note, that my left shoulder was bothring me a bit this morning.. old injury.. so towards the middle of my range time.. I admit.. I was wavering a bit.
    I mapped out my shots as well in the graphic below:

    Thank You so much.... she's out of the hospital.. I posted a "Thank You" and status, in the lounge fourm area. Everyone's prayers helped.
