Got a chance to shoot today . I shot 2 groups of 5 rounds each . This was at 12 yards . The first group was the lower left group ,then I used a little Kentucky windage .

The John Wayne rig from EP saddlery is a excellent rig  for the Pietta pp522 . Plan on shooting tomorrow , so far I am real pleased with the Pistol . The Vintage hunter will want to add this to his collection .

This weekend was great . I found the perfect targets to shoot . I found almost a case of Beer on the roadside . The sun had faded the cans so they had been there awhile . So I loaded them up and went shooting . Now when you hit a can and it blows up , well that's just fun to watch . Now them Bud's didn't stand a chance against a 44wcf .

Defending yourself from an attack of the "Budweiser Gang".   Nice!

Actually cans are still my favorite target.

I was a lucky man , those Budweiser boys didn't have a chance . The Pietta has really impressed me . I have shot about 200 rounds through it so far . I like the Bullseye ejector that is on the old models . I will go as far to say I like it better than my Uberti . The grips just have that feel , they just fit my hand perfectly .

Thank you , I am real pleased with the Pietta . And the El Paso rig is superb rig . It has 24 bullet loops that are centered . This works great while hunting I wear the buckle to the rear and the bullet loops in front .

Rowdy... I know you mentioned it but I cant find it.. Are the sights the wide notch or the razor thin/narrow V type?

The rear sight is the V notch . The front sight is not tapered it's a straight wall , and it's not a fat width like the smoke wagon for example . I will try to get a picture of the sights .

Nice write up, thanks.  Few thing better in life that popping cans or doing the can-can dance on a sand bank with a six gun :-)

The best use for cans of Budweiser, in my opinion Wink.

When I started looking for a 4 3/4 44wcf old model I wanted a Uberti . But , I could get my hands on the Pietta and it has worked   GREAT . I plan on shooting black powder loads this weekend .I need to have enough time to  clean between different loads .

Between work and life didn't get to shoot over the weekend . I have a few black powder loads that I want to try . When Deer season arrives this fall I plan on having this 44wcf ready too . My 73 rifle proved that old cartridge is as deadly today as it was in1873 .Today gun writers want to sell the newest greatest not the old favorites . Here is a couple of my favorites .

Finally got a chance to shoot the black powder ammo . This was ammo from Powder Inc. that was for Vintage Hunting . This ammo was HOT to say the least . I shot 15 rounds on paper and about 15 rounds at cans and bottles . The first couple round brought out the fling monster then I settled down .

Got the day off , so I went shooting . I fired about 50 rounds of black hills ammo .  Still HAPPY with the Pietta . The Pietta and the El Paso Saddlery John Wayne rig are a Excellent combo . I have shot smokeless and black powder and plan on shooting some BP subs . I have plans for a black powder Ground Hog hunt . But that will be after Turkey season goes out .
