  1. I started shooting USPSA in the 80s with a 1911 like everybody else. Then a Springfield Armory P9. Then I discovered sporting clays (shotgun game) and hadn't picked up a pistol in decades, until... ... I bought a 627. It's great, and I love shooting revo. My buddy worked with Charley Priest (the guy that pioneered the 8 shot S&W N frame) and he smithed mine up pretty good. Now I'm a Ba, ba, ba Bud man, and a revo fan
  2. What are you doing here? This is a place for people that shoot guns
  3. Are you the same goofball on calguns? How can I block this guy?
  4. As I chronicled in my other threads I spent the 90 bucks and bought one for my S&W 627. Using it with TK. .0250 blue moon clips and Remington ammo, it was just too hard to turn it. I'm 61 and have a little arthritis in my right hand. I even tried loading four rounds in it, thereby only loading one at a time, instead of two. No go, I still couldn't turn it. Then I had an idea, since I couldn't make the groove in the brass any smaller in diameter, maybe I could make the opening in the clip larger? I got a round file, and gave it a try. Four licks with the file was too much. Two licks wasn't enough. But much like Goldilocks, three was just right. Now that I can use it, I see why you guys like it. It's pretty slick, and works well. Thanks for all the help and suggestions.
  5. I know there are a few other threads about this, but they seem to devolve into glasses recommendations. I've already got Randolph Ranger frames that I use to shoot shotguns with. In clays we use purple to make the orange clay "pop". What color makes red fiber optic "pop".
  6. Cool video. I reposted it.I hope you don't mind. https://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/showthread.php?t=1541973
  7. OP, I'm still learning. What were the DQs for?
  8. Sorry for the newbie question. Can you be in A Class in OPEN, and B Class in LIMITED? Or something like that? Or if you're in A Class, you're in A Class across the board?
  9. I can't even double tap my revo, when I'm dry firing it My trigger doesn't reset that fast.

    adj comb or not

    The factory adjustable comb sucks. The hardware sucks, and the cut sucks. You'll be much happier getting a non adjustable comb stock, then having someone add an aftermarket adjustable comb to it.
  11. The only way for me to remove one of the teats is with an end mill. Mine aren't removable.
  12. Damn it. I literally just got mine from BMT at twice the price. For me it's basically unusable for 8 rounds of Remington .38 special with TK .025 clips. There's just no way I can turn the metal part with my hand. It's too stiff. If I load 4 rounds ( thereby loading 1 round at a time, as opposed to loading 8 rounds, and loading 2 rounds at a time) I can turn it. I need to figure out a way to get more leverage. Maybe a handle of some kind?
  13. I need something to "shoot" for Get it, shoot for? I crack myself up.
  14. When you guys are double tapping at 10 yards, what is your time from the beep, to the last shot? I'm talking about, beep, draw, first shot, second shot. Double action revo, of course.
  15. I ordered a dual moon clip holder (tall) for my 627 from Amazon. Never thinking about the outside diameter of the dowels, or the inside diameter of my TK moon clips. Needless to say, I got the 5/8ths dowels, but really needed the 9/16ths. I called them, and they were happy to exchange them. In fact, they sent me both 1/2" and and 9/16", and just asked that I return the unused ones. I went with 9/16ths. It's a good product, and works well. At 60 bucks a pop, I wish I had thought of it
  16. Wow, I'm right handed and my left hand is not dexterous enough to grab a moon clip and get it anywhere close to the cylinder I hit the thumb release with my right thumb, transfer the gun to my left hand, elect the rounds with my left thumb, grab and reload a mom clip with my right hand, then transfer the gun back to my right hand. So far I've got the whole thing down under 30 seconds
  17. Ok, I ordered one tonight. I'll let you know how it goes.
  18. Beats me. I'm not a member yet, but it's only 30 bucks to join.
  19. After taking about 20 years off from pistol shooting (I've been shooting sporting clays shotguns) I bought a S&W 627, 8 shot .38 special. At 60 years old the first thing I did was replace the gold bead font sight with a Dawson Fiber Optic. It was a huge improvement. Then I saw the SDM Super Sight. It's literally twice as long as the Dawson, and the fiber optic is twice as big. Man, what a difference !! Almost like when I had cataract surgery. Any of you guys using one?
  20. Ok I'm still confused. Regardless of how many rounds you put in, it still only loads them into the moon clip two at a time, right? That's why if you put in 8 rounds, you have to click it 4 times.
  21. I'm confused, the one I used you put in all eight cartridges in at the same time. You clicked it four times, because each click loaded two rounds into the clip. There was no way to load four at a time on the one I tried.
