We just had our first Cove City Invitational Hunting Handgun Shoot-off...The prize was a blue 7 1/2" Redhawk in 44 and we collected $50 each for transfer and shipping... The guns used were a 260 Rem XP-100 single shot a Springfield 10mm semi auto and a 460 S&W XVR revolver with all shooting factory ammo. Targets were at 115 yards, being a 10"x 12" steel plate and a 3"round steel plate. Since there were only three shooters it took a small part of the afternoon. Craig did well with the iron sight 10mm and I was decent with all three but David swept the stage with five straight hits on the 3" plate and took the prize... Congratulations Franchise...
PS- Just for the record I supplied the Redhawk and it was NOT donated by Ruger.....

Now that looks like fun. Reminds me of the old cardboard safari we used to do.

I was a handgun hunter, when handgun wasn't cool.....

I had a great time! I love getting together with fellow handgun hunters and shooting. James' 260 Rem is an amazingly accurate handgun as you'd expect, but the surprise was the 460 S&W...115 yards and 3" plates, A Piece Of Cake....300 gr and 275 gr bullets all shot to the same point of impact. My favorite part of course was watching my wife bust steel with the 460 S&W...that's right..5'2 and 110 pounds of No Fear.

Vance, Speaking of blast.... I don`t know which was more severe... the XP in 260 or the S&W 460 revolver... I put an empty ammo box near the 460 and muzzle brake moved it a foot over... When I chronographed the 460 the blast took the faceplate off the Chrony...

Great times!


It takes 43 muscles to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger squeeze.

Jimmy, the only thing missing was a master chef from NY wielding a 357 Max while smoking a cigar.
