Revolvers for Bullseye
by Robert Kolesar
I have a job that many shooters wouldn’t mind doing. I’m assigned to the USAR Service Pistol Team, and I shoot daily when I’m training for the big matches. It’s not all fun and games, though…lots of testing is involved, picking out the best ammo and lot numbers that suit my particular pistols.
The last few years, revolvers have made a comeback in bullseye, with several dedicated matches for wheelguns. At Camp Perry there are two-the Harry Reeves Match and the Revolver Distinguished Match. Being a military service pistol shooter, these matches are fun and excellent practice with a different handgun platform. Here’s my chosen revolver that I’ll be using…a limited production M68 6" in .38 Special that I bought as a young policeman in the LAPD Revolver Club.
M68 .38 Special, built for the LAPD in the mid-80’s.
I sent my revolver back to S&W years ago for installation of a post (patridge) front sight; a much better target sight than the red ramp. Action was also tuned by the LAPD armorers and the trigger serrations ground off and trigger face polished.
