Re: 1911 .45acp questions

When we had our store I saw so many 1911's come in for sale or trade in that were "customized" as to a joke they just had to change it and most got surprised to what the value went to DOWN and we would really not want most of them as hard to resale, some had much more than the cost of the pistol in ...

Re: 1911 .45acp questions

Older Minute Man OWB leather here for many years do not plan to change for my Glock 32, it works well. Over 17 yrs now daily with same rig. Never an issue at all.

Re: TP9SFX Mag Release Button IDPA SSP

EXACTLY why so many of us quit IDPA, After my 1st IPSC match I never went back all due to some stupid rules, our club as a whole dropped it totally it is created for 1 thing cash, when it started it was much better, just my views only here stated. The reload rules go against so much we were taught a...

Re: Hot Day Match with SFX and Red Dot!

I have pushed a friend in a wheel chair several times in a match he just loves the companionship and shooting and the most accurate, one time our resident know it all complained that I was assisting him by pushing, that did not go over well with anyone. I will shoot till I cant! Last year our champi...

Re: Who All is a Competiton Shooter?

Why I stopped shooting several matches were the rules and we changed to a personal protection match kind of an outlaw match we called it at 1 time, so much better and relaxed feeling. I am inviting any here to come shoot with me as my guest on 3rd Sat, anyone up to it say so Dallas east area. Usuall...

Re: Holosun 507c...fail boat

Well I found I am not a red shooter, I shot much better with iron sights, no comparison as to targets shot with 1911 and Glock to the Canik with red dot. 2 to 1 larger grouping with red dot.
