Action Pics of Wife Shooting
A couple of weeks ago I posted some info about my wife shooting my Smith & Wesson model 1066 10mm. Bud asked for action pictures. So here they are. I learned something trying to take these shots. It is almost impossible to get a shot of the exact moment the trigger breaks. Leah is a good shooter and it is obvious from me watching her that she is surprised everytime the trigger breaks and fires the round. She never anticipates and there for when I click the shutter I am hoping that the trigger will break a fraction of a second later. It did not happen.
We have no formal range to shoot at so this is out in the country where a friend has set up a table from his son, grandsons and himself to zero their rifles. There is plenty of space behind the targets and his property runs for more than a mile behind the stand of trees that we shoot toward. You will see woods in pretty much any direction. To our right when firing is a thicket. It is only 10 or 12 feet from the end of the table. You may notice a tarp in some shots. We arrange it so most of the brass lands on it. We police up all the brass for two reasons. First, because this is someone else's property and we don't leave it worse than we found it. And second, my wife has told me that we must start reloading. Guess you know what my Christmas present will be.
In the first two pictures she is shooting the SIG P239 in .357SIG. The third picture is the target for the first seven rounds. Yes, there are only 6 holes. The second hole down is the result of two hits.
These are of Leah with the S&W 1066. You can tell that she is not a big woman, but she has no problem with a big pistol. She shoots about as well two handed strong side, off hand right handed or left handed. She is still waiting to get the opportunity to fire a .44 magnum.
Maybe next time I can time the trigger break and get a shot of the actual firing. I'd like to get one of the .357SIG going off.
Well, Bud, there are your action shots. Maybe I'll do better next time. :wink:
