I was at the range on Saturday past, shooting my little Smith & Wesson .22lr wheel gun. It was a peaceful day and I was enjoying my morning. I was tearing up the bulls-eye on a target when suddenly my shots began to spread like buckshot.
I know the smithy is old and I began to think could the barrel be shot out? No I told myself; sure when I cleaned it last the rifling looked as good as new with nice sharp lands and grooves. Also it’s shooting lead not copper.
