    Taurus 740 is absolutely no fun to shoot. And what my wife uses for her CCW. Only thing that I've had that was less fun to shoot was a Ruger LCR .357 Thing was an absolute joy to carry, but a 17 ounce 357 does a pretty good job of slapping your hand.

    Yeah, the only reason I bought the Taurus was it was an impulse buy and I bought it right after the Sandy Hook tragedy, because I knew our governor at the time was going to push for more gun control and he did. It's because of him that we have to get our figure prints taken and have a card just to purchase hand guns now.

    Yeah, the older models had issues but I think they have it worked out because a guy I know has one and it will flat out empty a magazine in a hurry!

    Never apologize for having an in-expensive firearm. Beats throwing rocks, right? My wife's has probably over a thousand rounds through it with no problems. Other than the fact that it just plain hurts to shoot it.

    Yeah, I just wish I would have picked something like an M&P, or even a cheap revolver. I passed up a decent revolver for the Taurus, only to find out after I bought it that it only held one more round than the revolver. So, I've learned to never impulse buy anymore lol.

    I've got a .410/45 LC Derringer that is a joy to shoot. Lol!

    The Judge?? That was one of those that for some reason I always wanted. Had to make an actual attempt to avoid them at the gunshows so I wouldn't end up with another pointless gun.

    Back home we call those the think about it. Cause if you hit them with the 410 they will think about getting back up. Lol

    Such a far shot man! 7.62 is an awesome round but much easier with a .50 I would assume!?

    1600m with any round is amazing

    No, a single shot Derringer that fits in the palm of your hand. If the barrel was longer to where it could actually build up some pressure, it'd really be brutal!

  16. I have two different Mark IV pistols, and honestly have no plans on ever getting rid of them. Fun to shoot, cheap ammo, super accurate and anybody can handle shooting them. They improved my handgun shooting abilities more than anything.

    I have one with an AMC barrel that I used in competition. I love that gun!
    My dad brought a guy from work out to my place to sight in his AR. The guy complained that he couldn't see the 8" plate at 100 yards so I brought out the Mark IV and shot the plate all 10 times standing beside him. (Iron sights) I then said, "You mean that plate?" Seems like an asshat thing to do but the guy was talking about almost being a sniper in the military but missed qualifying by one shot. The guy was still in his 20s and couldn't see an 8" plate at 100 yards! I had to call bull$hit on him. Lol!

    Not in the same ballpark as yours, but I picked up a Mosin Nagant (Finnish M39) at a gun show one time. After a few weeks of soaking it in paint thinner and cooking the stock, it appeared to be unused. Thing is loud as fak and kicks like a mule, but I love shooting it. Ended up giving it to my son for his WWII collection.

    I call bull$h!t too. If your a qaulified sniper you dont miss a 100 yrd target. I onced missed a 1500m target. And even now with glasses. I can still nail at 1200m

    With that particular handgun (depending on wind conditions) and the right ammo, not a huge deal. Impressive, but far from impossible.

  25. Here's an old guy who shoots all kinds of stuff at his backyard range some of his far targets are. Close to football field distance. He can ding them with some regularity... With various handguns. Hicock45 https://youtu.be/V4gOnz4qYSw
