Is the Victory like a Hi Standard Victor?

I've fired a S&W Victory and consider them to be extremely nice pistols.† Although my experience was confined to one day, it fit my hand well and the accuracy was excellent.

I've owned a HS Victor for around 45 years and it is THE most accurate pistol I've ever fired.† Those old Victors defined the word "precision".† I also have a Ruger MKI Bull Barrel I bought in the early 1970s.† That pistol is at least as accurate as the S&W Victory and shoots thumbnail size groups at 25 yards.† If it just had a nice trigger I can only speculate what it could do.† But possibly my favorite pistol is a Colt Sport Target Woodsman I bought decades ago new.† Very accurate though not quite up to the Victor & MKI standards.† That nice pistol is lightweight, fits like a glove, accurate and gets carried a lot.† I've killed squirrels with it and killed lots of tin cans.
The Victor.

My old MKI.

That marvelous Woodsman.

You said it well, strong eagle; there is iron in your words.

I inherited this Victor from my late uncle, Iíve also got a heavy barreled Browning Buckmark. †While I enjoy shooting them, Iím not very good with either.

Quinn, That's beautiful.† I have the underbarrel weight for my Victor but usually leave it off.† I used to be a very good pistol shot, but sadly, no longer.† I used to hunt squirrels with .22LR pistols and a S&W M14 firing wadcutters.† Even used my .45Colt and .45acp 1911s.† I can still do okay at 25 yards, but have been using mostly a .32 or .36 flintlock for some years, now.

Strong eagle, I taught firearms at the police academy in the early 1970s.† But since the late 1990s with two shoulder surgeries, declining vision and such, my skill became affected.† Up until some 12 years ago I deer hunted with revolvers, .357s, .41mag & .44mags.† I particularly like the .41 as a deer caliber.† Your tips for accurate shooting are spot on.† The way I get those tiny groups nowadays, is to hand the pistol to the guy next to me at the range.† lol!

I have "essential tremors", according to the doctor.† I can hold my hand steady but when I try doing things such as writing, turning a screw, that sort of thing; I shake and end up holding the screwdriver in both hands to steady it.† Ain't life an adventure?
