The Detective Special Seems, Well, Special

Finally got to shoot the DS today. Ammo was Federal Gold Medal 148 gr. wadcutters. I went down to Mom's pond and shot at walnuts floating thereon. Lots of fun and rapid feedback. Shot about 48 rounds, one-handed, two-handed, weak-handed, SA, DA, and centered 5 of the slightly-smaller-than-a-tennis-ball walnuts and tore chunks from the sides of several others. Range was 10-25+ yards. This is what I love about 3" guns. They are a major step up in sighting ease over the 2" guns. The gun seems to give a bit more bounce than the M36 but nothing one can't handle with a little training. I like this gun more and more.
