    Taurus 82 revolver range report

    Took my Taurus 82 out to the range today for the first time. Unfortunately the only range I could get to has only a a 25 yard range as the closest you can bring targets, so it was a tad on the long side for pistol shooting (I usually shoot pistol at 10 yards or closer). I was using 125 gr Remington +P semi-jacketed hollow points - I couldn't find any 158 gr standard rounds, but the 125gr+P is closer to my chosen home defense round anyway.
    Most of my shots were hitting to the right of POA, and at first I had a hard time getting rounds into the 10 inch bullseye. After the first 50 rounds I got a handle on the trigger and sight picture and got about 75% of my next 50 rounds into the black. The gun's solid build and weight soaked up almost all recoil, but when shooting a quick string of shots using the DA trigger, the long trigger pull worked against me obtaining accurate follow-up shots. I'm considering painting the front sight ramp either a bright white or bright red to help it stand out a bit.
    Not one problem with the gun's function - no light primer strikes, no lead spitting out from the forcing cone area, no big flashes from front of cylinder...
    all in all, I'm looking forward to getting it to a proper pistol-distance range and seeing how it shoots with some standard 158 gr ammo (which is what I believe the fixed sights are regulated for).
    A regular who was at the range walked up and complimented the looks of the pistol - and was admittedly suprised when he found out it was a Taurus - said he thought it was a S&W or a Ruger.

    sorry for the crappy pic - will post a better one later.
