Took my dad's old Colt 32-20 out to Rabbit Creek today. First time with a handgun since 1999. Felt a little odd. I went through a box of 50 plus a few extras in about 2 hours.
I forgot how small the grip is on that gun. (First time shooting it since '97.) That grip is so small that my index finger nuckle is always against the back of the trigger guard, so when it goes bang, it bites. It was difficult to not "milk" the grip and have a consistent grip on the gun. At any rate, the gun shoots about 2" to the left, and, at 10 yards it would put 4 out of 6 almost touching with the other 2 nearby. At 15 yards that opened up considerably, and at 20 yards I hit the paper once out of 6. All of the shot groups strung somewhat vertical.
It has that half moon type front sight with a very shallow groove in the top strap for a rear sight. Lot of glare. I'll go get some sight black for it, I think.
My plan is to carry it when out of doors on the off chance to shoot a hare or grouse. But I'll have to be pretty darn close; feels like 15 yards is the maximum range with 10 being the better. Probably still better off than with a 410.
By the way, thanks to rbuck for helping me handload the bulk of the ammo I shot today, which, incidentally, had a decidedly more noticeable punch than the factory ammo I shot today. (As in, I could feel it on my nuckle more and I could see a bright orange blur in front of me when I fired.)
