First topic message reminder :

Hi All,
I am relatively new to the Bullseye league at my club, and have shot rimfire with them. Just joined the center fire, but am having difficulty. So, my 1st question is, should I modify a gun that I have, (will list below) or can you recommend one better suited to target shooting, as am thinking of trading in the S&W
1. SIG P229 9mm
2. S&W M&P 40 PRO Series C.O.R.E
3. Kimber Eclipse Pro II 45
 
Second question, what red dot or reflex sight would you recommend, currently have a Buck Mark Reflex sight on my Ruger Mark IV, but have been looking at a lot of them with a great range of prices, very confusing, just needs to be tough, as I'm a bit clumsy Smile

Just go straight to Zero loaded ammo if its cheaper, good stuff. Also look at Atlanta Arms.

some food for thought. 
I recently purchased my first bullseye pistol and decided to go with a ProPlus model from AccuracyX. I had almost no experience with a 1911 so the owner (Steve Huff) was very helpful when I needed to make decisions about many of the details of the build. He has a bullseye shooting background. Not all gunsmiths are actual shooters so their help in making decisions is limited.

They certainly fit the small criteria. This one held 10 ring at 25yds today but I was more plinking than anything else.. I had to hold sub 6 to get into the X ring with the sights bottomed out. But might of been my grip. This picture is for you James. This one really is a J frame.  Laughing

This adds nothing to the conversation but I am reminded of Natalie Wood, as Susan, in Miracle in 34th Street. Fred Gaily remarks that a parade float looks to be a giant. To which Susan replies “Sometimes people grow very large, but that’s abnormal…”
