Re: 2-Gun Action Match with a Remington Model 8 (video)

Tucson - the match is the third Saturday of each month, at the Pima Pistol Club. Everyone is welcome, but be prepared for a highly physical match. :) Entry fee is $15.

The rifle performed almost flawlessly - I had one malfunction that I believe was caused by the takedown screw loosening slightly (which as easy to fix and didn't hurt my score becaus...

Model 8 in slow motion

Figured folks here might find this interesting - I just finished a range trip with a Model 8 in .25 cal, getting footage for a video I'm putting together for my web site on the rifle.
