Drove over in the AM for the Sunday, Mother's Day shooting of the Distinguished Pistol Match and NRA Distinguished revolver. Actually I had forgotten all about shooting revolvers and just took my 1911. I didn't shoot well nor badly but ended up having the top score in the LEG match with a 263X3. Good for another six points and making my total 20. I need 30 points for the badge so the suffering will continue. Just enough folks to give one LEG so the six points I got were all there were.
Like to be double distinguished, rifle and pistol. It's rare. I think it's much harder to get rifle Distinguished badge. I'm just a tourist with a pistol. Course of fire is 10 rounds in 10 minutes at 50 yards with a Service pistol. Two five-round strings in 20 seconds each at 25 yards and then two stings of five rounds each in 10 seconds at 25 yards. 30 rounds total. Nothing to it.
I borrowed a nice S&W K38 with a good grip and free ammunition for the NRA Distinguished Revolver Match. NRA Distinguished is not the same at all as the CMP Distinguished. The fellow I borrowed it from shoots right-handed but left-eyed and I ended up having to hold about a foot off the aiming black low and to 7:00. I made it go and shot a 250- second place to his 256. Nice shooting revolver, and old K38 with a six inch barrel. Fun to shoot.
I have a Diamondback and a Python...both with 4 inch barrels. Wonder what it would cost to re-barrel one of them to six inches for Distinguish Revolver matches?
