CCI's CB Shorts were another story. They were dead on. I repeatedly whacked the bulls-eye and the misses were only off 1-2 inches, which is enough to still bag a chuck. My suggestion is to carry a dozen or so of these shorts with you hunting if you think you'll have a close shot. They're also quiet, which is another plus. At the next shoot the target will go out to 25 yards and ammo will switch to LR.
A Mini-Master question
"Hello been watching your blog on the Mini-Master. I've been wanting one for a few years but never could get one here in CA. I just ordered one and this is the 3rd time I've tried and it looks promising. I have always wanted to try a min globe sight with fine crosshairs. Can you tell me the height of the front sight on the MM from the base of the dovetail to the top of the sight? I ordered mine with the adjustable sights... I'm going to see if I can get one of these to try on the gun. ~Rob
I measured the front sight for Rob and with the new rear sight, the front stands only 3/16" to the top. I'll be amazed if the 10/22 sight is that small. Since the replacement sights are working so well I'm not sure a set of crosshairs in the front will improve anything. I can see a real problem of the sight getting hung up in your pocket as well as making the revolver so that it doesn't fit into any holster. You might want to take these things into consideration. ~Bob
