    Range Report - Colt Cobra .38 Special

    I took my Colt Cobra out yesterday for a short work-out of only 20 rounds, mainly just to see if it shoots to POA. Since I only have one box of standard pressure 158 grain LSWC ammo, this was all I could shoot and still have some left for "emergencies". I can't get this load locally, so a more extensive range session will have to wait until I can mail-order some.

    Here's the Colt. I learned real quick that this little 15.5 ounce beast is a nasty knuckle rapper. I'm going to order a Tyler T-Grip adapter to solve that little problem.







    Here's my target. 20 rounds at 20 yards, double action, Federal 158 grain LSWC. This is "minute of BG" accuracy; good enough for me.



    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    Looks like a decent shooter

    Hey Terry;

    Nice Colt and good shooting. That's good "minute of bad guy" shooting for 20 yards.

    I have a cobra too and it's too nice to carry i'll stick to the sig for that purpose. It's too bad that colt stopped making their double acton revolvers their is nothing on the market that can hold a candle to them in my opinion.

    I'm a big fan of the DS...and I love the original grips on your model as well as the next gen with the shroud...but your grips are getting harder to find in nice condition..you may want to just put on a pair of shooters like the ones below that another forum member here has...they look pretty cool.
