    Range report Revolver, S&W Model 60 Pro 3" barrel.

    Range report S&W Model 60 Pro 3" barrel;

    Finally got some good uninterrupted range practice time in with my new Model 60 Pro.
    Sorry no pic’s – it was just me – no one to take any pic’s or video.
    The 60 Pro is my EDC and after yesterday I feel pretty good with that being the case.
    For years I had been a semi only guy & for various reason’s came over to revolvers.
    Yesterday’s practice was carrying under an untucked polo shirt OWB DeSantis holster at around 2-2:30 position.
    Started off with spent shells since I have no snap caps.
    Practiced pulling shirt up with left hand – drawing and point shooting strong hand – one hand only.
    Distances were from in your face out to 7 yards.
    After several practice draw and point shoot with empty cartridges I loaded up live ammo - 38 special solid rounds and did the same practice drills.
    No problems – all shots were within the area of a large paper plate – approximately 12” circle again from in your face to 7 yards distance.
    I’ve had a hard time finding 357 ammo so I limited a session to one set of those. I didn’t notice a whole lot of difference from the 38’s – some but not as much as I had expected.
    After the draw, point and shoot practice drills I moved out to 40 yards and was pleased that I was able to hit the steel silhouette targets (two handed) without any problems.
    Lastly I finished off with a few of the close up draw, point and shoot sessions without my prescription glasses – using safety glasses only and was happy that results were almost as good as with my prescription glasses but again I was point shooting and not really depending on sight picture.
    Next time out I plan to practice pocket carry, draw and point shoot practice drills.
    For God, Family and Country!

    Sounds like a good match. I would feel confident with that gun and your abilities. I carry a SW J frame always. I love it (442) but really want an old steel classic like the 60. Can't wait for the pics.

    I love my 60, even moreso now that I bobbed the hammer. While not the 3" I really like. I wish they made a 3" 60 with fixed sights.

    Great job love that gun. I had same problem finding .357 / .38 for practice ended up setting up a reloading bench best thing I ever did now can go any time shoot as much as I want. Now my sons keep me busy reloading for them. If
    I could only get them to police more brass than they take to the range theres always a bunch on the the ground. Ended up with the lyman turret t-mag works pretty well, have a crusher but to slow.

    I carry a 605 in my pocket just practice keeping your thumb on the hammer when you draw so it won't snag on the way out.

    You'll be onto something when you can pocket carry an N frame...

    I'll be waiting for the pocket carry report. I've got that model but don't see that working for me. I love the gun, to be sure. Keep me posted.
