The Security Six is a PPC gun that I use mostly for Steel Plate Competitions. Has most every trick in the book, and is deadly fast on steel...
The RedHawk is a .44 Mag for long range shooting. Going to try my luck at 300 yards this summer......

Both of those look sharp. I have shot plates at 200yds but not 300. That would be a challenge. I use this DW M40, I just picked up a SRH in 44mag I well try out on the steel.

wow, 200 and 300 yards with such a short barrel (compared to a rifle) is a great accomplishment....i wouldn't have thought to bring a pistol to a long range competition

100 yards is fairly easy and can be done with most longer sight radius barreled revolvers. 200 yards and there is noticeable diffuculty making the shots...300 yard and beyond ~ Now we are talking every bit of skill, timing, and patience that you have....

Need to add quality optics to this one, but it is a ongoing project....

Very nice
most of my pistol shooting is only out to 25 yds,
and my indoor range is only 50 feet
I will get a chance to try further this week though,
reserved a private outdoor range for the whole family

My local gun range has a 50 and 100 yard range. Can shoot handguns on either but on 100 yard it has to be 4 inch barrel or longer. I haven't shot at the 100 yard yet with a handgun but 50 yards is very common for guys that try each other's guns. Often put clay pidgeons at the impact area. Have seen guys set up steel plates too. Sometimes it beats shooting at paper!
