I tend to watch Hickok .45 on you tube and he had a great vid on accuracy. His theory is that if you carried most any weapon, it will shoot as well as a Baer, Wilson, Brown etc. Providing the trigger and sights are in aline. He was prolific in stating that 99% of the time most of the guns can shoot better than the shooter- I totally agree! If my Ruger or Colt Commanders could shoot a 2" group in a 50' distance I would be tickled. The only shooting I get to do is an indoor range with a total distance of 50 feet. With 8 million square miles of desert in Az, most of it is BLM land or reservation of which you can't shoot on. Would I like to try a fancy built pistol? Hell yes!! Would my accuracy become better-I don't think so. Now Phideaux (Jim) would shoot a bazooka if he could improve his accuracy. He's a brute for punishment! IF it's a big bore, he's gonna shoot it!! My question to you guys and gals: Do you have a custom built pistol and do you see that great of improvement in your shooting skills? I know Jim can cuz he builds all his rifles and plays alot with them. Do you think the added cost is worth the final result? I am anxious to hear your feedback and you won't hurt my feelings either way you state your comments. Thanks to all!! Tommy::metal: P. S. I am stuck to punching paper but would love to go out and try some metallics sometime.
