DW Specialist: My Best Group at Distance EVER!

I was at the range yesterday and I took along my Dan Wesson Specialist Commander 9mm. I have really neglected it since I bought it because I have purchased quite a few guns in rapid succession and I didn't get to give the Specialist the time it deserves.

For whatever reason I got into a groove when I was shooting the Specialist; it did everything I wanted it to. Inside of ten yards, like my other DWs and WCs, my Specialist can make a ragged holes all day. As is my custom, just before I put away one of my 1911s when I'm done practicing inside of 10 yards, I put my target out to the end of the range, which is about 17 yards at this particular range, and shoot a few 5 round groups. Well, I only wound up shooting one group at that distance with the Specialist yesterday. I figured there was no chance of improving on it In fact, the only way I will EVER improve on it would be with a rifle on a benchrest!


Yesterday I shot my Best Group at Distance EVER!

Amazing skills, the only way I can shoot a grouping even close to that is at 7 yards.

I have never made a ragged hole with 4 rounds at 17 yards. I couldn't believe it when I reeled it in. I have had 2 rounds touching before at that distance with a 3rd close by. But nothing like this. I don't know if I will ever be able to repeat it with any handgun.

The only gun I could probably do it with would be my friend's CZ Czechmate Parrot with the C-more red dot on it.

The Czechmate does one tear at 25 lol, thing is literaly cheating. My Ed Brown (optics) can do it too but thatís also cheating.

Great shooting. The thing that kills my one hole groups is the second shot.

My Specialist Commander in 45 is more accurate than I am, that’s for sure
