THE TEST: All guns were shot with a two-hand grip, over a rest, at 50 yards. I'm a fair handgunner and Joe is a true expert, but we agree that the maximum range for most big revolvers is 50 yards (the T/C's is double that). For revolvers, Joe recommends firing two strings of three shots. With iron sights, you're set if you can keep your shots in a 6-inch circle at 50 yards. With a scope, it should be 4 inches. The T/C Contender, with a long barrel and a scope, should put three shots in an inch at 100 yards.
