Is anyone else moving from shotgunning to hand gunning? I still enjoy shooting but find mobility issues are a concern--and indoor pistol ranges with A/C have an appeal.
Really enjoying league shooting here in Central Florida with carry guns. Anybody else afflicted?

In two, my only two, altercations involving handguns, the attacker (assailant) continued to advance toward me until I pointed a revolver so that the assailant could see the bullets pointing toward his eyes. As Foxy mentions, seeing the bullets in the front of the cylinder puts a stop to most assaults by sane persons.

Hal, I can barely walk and can only stand for a few minutes at a time on a skeet range or sporting clays course. I use a gun cart and a dove stool on both courses. However, I am not going to quit shooting a shotgun, even though I have a nice little covey of handguns. I haven't shot my handguns in years, but may in the future. I shoot shotguns about three days a week, shot a Model 21 in a club 50 bird sporting clays event yesterday. Didn't win, but I wasn't winning when I could walk. I shot AA NSSA skeet with a few hours here and there in AAA. I shot strong B class International Skeet, even won a Silver and a Bronze at Tryouts. I shot USSCA before there was any NSCA, only quit registering my birds when I couldn't get a travelling companion. I loved the game, but it outran me. Very few of the early shooters are still in it. I would still be shooting flyers if someone would pay for them or I could win a race occasionally. All that is over now, but I am still shooting double barrel shotguns three days a week and enjoying it.

I have always liked revolvers, but turned pretty much decades to bird hunting, and a bit of clays. In recent years, the social agendas of the country's left has easily convinced me that the window for legally enjoying "carry" semiautos with interesting magazine capacities is likely closing. So, I find myself making room for pistol, pistol ammo, and reloading odds and ends aquiring. I am also a hundred percent convinced that young kids who are introduced to guns that wow them, are the ones that will eventually find their way to nice shotguns. This summer, we've run thousands of 9mm rounds for grandkids, and other young relatives who don't otherwise get the chance to shoot. Of course, then they want to shoot all sorts of other fun stuff.

At 85 I'm enjoying precision .22 bench rest and .22 target pistol shooting. Still trying to get a round or two of trap and/or skeet in every week or two.

It would be hard for me to imagine a much better trigger than is on my 1911 .45 ACP, which I carry in Condition One. My wife has a S & W "hammerless" revolver in .38 Special, which I keep stoked with +P ammo. I didn't want her to have to fumble with a safety under stress.
