I bought a new carry gun - a Ruger LCR in .38 +P. That's a snub .38 with a 2" barrel. Yesterday I went down to Tri-County Gun Club. I love that club, but its only flaw is that the pistol range's shortest distance (for centerfire) is 25 yards. I also took my Ruger GP 101 6". Firing in either SA or DA, at 25 yards I had no problem hitting centerish of target (most of the time - don't mean to sound like I'm bragging). Better shots with SA mode, but that's to be expected. With the LCR...I had a hard time hitting the board the targets were pasted on I realize the full-sized revolver is much better for longer shots (duh) but I'm wondering if there's something wrong with the way I was holding/shooting the LCR, or if it's really not to be expected to hit anything much at 25Y with a snub. I wouldn't expect to engage at that distance in the real world...and if they had a 10-foot or 25-foot setup, I'd definitely have shot that instead. Just wondering. Guy next to me was shooting a Glock 26 and had similar problems...though none with his full-sized 1911.
