Wednesday evening silhouette matches. I carried my cowboy gun in a soft case strapped across my back but it's a bit ungainly in rush hour traffic....

Thanks, Cedestech. My guns are Contenders with scopes mounted similar to yours there. I use 22lr (obviously) for smallbore hunter pistol and a 22 hornet with mild loads for hunter pistol. I had my eye on an Anschutz Exemplar until I found out we couldn't use bolt guns.

New kid on the block here but here's my Lefty 10" Exemplar in different configs.

Here's normal config with 18X Redfield

My offhand config

Iron sights?

Can she shoot? (10 shots)

You betcha!

I may be selling her because we don't have much in the way of silhouette pistol matches here anymore. I still do rifle and
black powder.

Yes, 256 win mag.
You can use it for 1/2 size unlimited any sight.
Twist is not fast enough to use a heavy bullet for Rams.
256 win mag is not allowed for hunters pistol.
