It would be a handful. Had a play with a 45 colt many years ago. It took quite a while to work out how to hit the target. (beer can). Much harder than a rifle. In my early days I did a lot of pig shooting. Had an SKK with 30 shot mags. Great fun but not very sporting.😂 Then the laws changed and had to hand them all in😁
Yes pistol shooting bigger than 9mm is a bit more tricky to get shots on at a distance...
Yep, Getting old and full of arthritis.it sucks.All from self abuse in my early days. Motocross,water skiing and 35years of crawling through roof space doing TV antenna installs. Now the cold just hurts.
So you saying you dont want to come and spend a week on the streets with me writting a few tickets and chasing some criminals?

I buy the console SCART leads because theyre as cheap as making them, and top quality. Finding suitable plugs for the back of some consoles is not easy, and i like to retain original connectors, even though i do change capacitor and resistor values in some consoles to get the correct colour drive that Sony intended for their CXA-1145 and CXA-1645 chips, in the case of a fair few consoles they used different values that result in reduced black to white range.
I use 2 SCART switchers in line with each other, and there is zero noise or degraded image quality if you use the good quality manually switched units. Theyre spot on perfect. Ive tested with going direct to the XRGB-3 as well as via both switchers, and there is no loss that can be seen on my 125" screen with my Cine 9, so youre pretty safe there.
The auto switching ones are shit, that is absolutely true.
I must use the XRGB-3 to line double because my Cine 9 does not scan at 15.7kHz, and although the LiMO-PRO is pretty good, very little lag in doubling, but the XRGB-3 is way better, way faster with as little as 1 line of lag, and it also lets you adjust the brightness of every second line, so you can dim them down and make it look like a perfect 15.7kHz image, but still adds a bit of brightness to the image at the same time. I dim them enough so that you cant really tell theyre there from the lounge, but if you ramp them right down you see the overall image brightness drop, meaning you need to drive contrast up a bit more, wear tubes unevenly, wear scanlines into the tubes ( because its a 240p signal in majority of cases as you know )

Look on eBay, there are excellent quality SCART cables available for almost every console for very reasonable prices.
Even i dont make my own for consoles, only SCART - SCART leads for transfer between SCART switchers. I make those to avoid noise that you get with most SCART -SCART cables. I use big thick RGB cables with good shielding for that and good quality plugs.
The quality SCART cables for consoles on ebay that come from UK are awesome.

There will be a bit of a section in the middle of the bars that can be adjusted using the midlights on the gamma menu for red and blue. There is also a blue slope and curve setting, have a play with those, see how ya go. If you make a mess of those you can reset them easily anyway.

Should add you want to use cutoffs to get the greyscale from around 16-50 to be correct, you will defocus blue before you do this, use a ramp that shows red green blue cyan purple yellow and white, anything below 16 should be almost invisible.
Set gains to make sure top ends are perfect grey, set contrast at 75 and brightness at 40-45, then ramp up gains to get correct top end punch.
