Winona's First Shots...
« on: November 10, 2018, 09:46:25 PM »
Hi, Everyone!

Finally got "Winona", my Uberti 1858 Factory Conversion, out to the range today!  Couldn't see the front site worth spit, but somehow, still managed some bulls-eyes:  (see below)

Also, my best friend managed a short vid.  Hopefully not too much trouble to watch (had to send it to me by Filemail.com):

Gotta say, she's a keeper!  Just got to get better sights... and better eyes.

Yep... I'm thinkin' those bulls-eyes are when I had the sights properly aligned.     )%R

Then we'll just call it "A Wing and a Prayer."  Point.  Shoot.  Pray!  And don't forget to flap your arms.......    ;)
