Re: Need some Glock help

I have a Gen 2 23 and a gen 4 19. Gen3 likely still has the largest aftermarket. IMHO, the factory trigger on all of them pretty much sucks. On the 19, I hate the serrated trigger so I swap them out for a smooth Glock trigger out of a 17. Then I put in one of the Ghost connectors, polish all of the ...

Re: What are your thoughts? Forum vs Social Media

I prefer forums. reasons: I have the usual social media accounts but they are becoming less attractive every day. Many of them have adopted a very anti-2nd Amendment mentality with polices to match. Many of them have also adopted very pro-socialism positions and use their money to support the same. ...

Re: Low PF 9mm for us non-reloader competition shooters

Blazer brass 115gr was 134-135pf at 95° out of my SFx. Aguila 115gr was 133pf at same temp out of the same pistol. With the Sfx’s extra barrel length, the problem is usually finding a factory load that is 130-133pf instead of 138-144pf I will have to get another box of it to make sure but I think PM...

Re: Fed primers go deep in Fed 9mm brass

They are very soft. That is why they are recommended for use with several competition triggers and custom competition trigger jobs from several well-respected comp gun builders. Soft cups avoid many light primer strike issues but can invent some reloading issues. I have smushed quite a few of the fe...

Re: Low PF 9mm for us non-reloader competition shooters

If you check local gun ranges (assuming there are some nearby), some of them are apt to offer custom reload options. At one of the ranges near me, they will load most calibers to whatever specs you want so long as the load data you give them isn't unsafe. You may have to buy in bulk (500-1000 rounds...

Re: Need some advice on compatabile competition mag pouches for Tp9sfx

My belt is a somewhat modified black scorpion (3-gun style ratchet buckle and strap) with a DIY kydex holster body on a drop and offset mount that is about like a Ben Stoeger boss hanger. My mag pouches for CO are Black Scorpion and Black Scorpion eBay clones ($7.80 each if you buy three...lol) whic...

Re: Reloading for USPSA Carry Optics

I have been buried in work for the last several weeks but I will get some more info up here soon. The RMR bullet and load mentioned a few post back is great after you get used to it (if switching from something heavier). I am going to try it will some different recoil springs to see how fast I can g...

This is a thicker oil that's also very stringy. Stays in place. Much less oil splatter on the lenses of my Vortex.
Try STP oil treatment thinned to your liking with Marvel Mystery Oil. Ungodly slick and you can make the viscosity anywhere from almost frozen maple syrup to as thin as you want.

Re: Dom from Florida

Glad to help.
I was in Florida not long ago - not for anything gun or matched related though - just watching waves move around the white sand and the dolphins swim by.

Re: Reloading for USPSA Carry Optics

Coated bullets do not leave lead in the barrel like plain lead bullets. They are also cleaner when handling them (certainly more clean than any lead bullet with a lube groove) so less goop in your reloading dies and on your hands. Coated lead bullets usually require slightly less powder to reach pow...

If I can get Clays to work the way I want in my 650, it looks like it will be extremely clean burning but it wants to be difficult when it comes to metering.

Re: Anything New and Cool in the Gun World?

The Walther Q5 SF Pro is interesting. Pretty much a steel frame SFx with a nice beaver tail built into the grip. At 42.3oz (empty) it weighs in at around the same as my tungsten modded SFx but the beavertail on it certainly helps with control. Unfortunately, it has the price tag you would expect for...
