Makes sense that handguns are getting more accurate all the time. And the silhouette guys seem to be pretty hooked on the sport so there's got to be something to it. And apparently it's not a fad either- when I was growing up in CDA in the 80s I use to set up steel targets at Farragut to raise money for our local Civil Air Patrol squadron. I remember thinking back then that those guys were a little odd to be using pistols for those long shots
Dad had a Contender with a bunch of barrels that I use to swap out and shoot. Boy that .222 was loud! The .44 with the shotshell attachment was great for birds. Too bad my mom gave it away...arghh, don't get me started on that one.
Can anyone point me to a source that shows accuracy vs barrel length for handguns? Is the only reason that the unlimited guys are using 15" barrels to get their speed up?
