Re: Click, click, no bang

Probably have a MIM firing pin and the tip broke off. The new ones are machined. I bought a two pack of the machines pins and didn't wait to swap it out. Pull the FP out and see what it looks like!

Did you dry fire with a dummy round? If not, that's probably what did the FP in.

Hey Ed... good to see ya here! :-BD That was a fun match...the 4 non-threat hits, and a mike pretty much did me in.

Re: CoronaV Layoff - First Match

My first IDPA match back after a 2 1/2 month CoronaV shooting layoff. My accuracy was way off and had several "can't find the dot" moments. All in all not terrible. Shot this one with @GlennSFX who after a slow start managed to finish a few spots ahead of me. Love the SFX. Continue to learn a ton f...

Re: Shooting gloves

I don't like gloves at all!!!! I've tried a few in the cold weather and just don't like not having the "feel" of the gun with them. For matches I just keep my hands in my jacket pockets with hand warmers. No issues taking them out to shoot or paste holes. In the summer I use Pro Grip. Stuff works gr...

Re: The Devil made me do it!!!!!

I really like my Gas Pedal. It does not fit everyone, depends on grip position and hand/finger size. I have somewhat finished up my X-VTAC. Using the Gas Pedal, 1911 recoil, Wilson Combat full size frame with tungsten weights. Tuned Sig straight 90 degree trigger. At 2#s, and very short reset. Hope...

Re: The Devil made me do it!!!!!

Why the switch from the DPP to Sro? I have a dpp on the way for My elite executive. My DPP is the 7.5 triangle and it gets a little washed out in bright sunlight. Leupold dropped the 7.5 and is only producing the 2.5 moa. I find the 2.5 is too small for me. The SRO has a taller field of view, and t...

Re: Guide Rod

You won't be shooting 124g sub-sonic competition rounds with the factory setup. You'll be looking at a 1911 style guide rod and probably a 12 or 13# spring. Your striker spring will need to be changed to a 6 or 6.5# Glock spring. Of course there's other mods to improve trigger weight and smoothness....

Re: Post your "MATCH" videos/pictures here.

Boy-Howdy! Matches have started up again. Went to a 4-stage plus qualifier match Sunday, 31 MAY. Having only shot one match since OCT 2019, it wasn't too bad. I'll never get up there with the big boys but I love the shooting and the comradery at the matches. If you are thinking about competition sh...

Re: Post your "MATCH" videos/pictures here.

What was the muzzle comment on video 3? Breaking the "180" leads to a DQ (disqualification). That's why they had it painted on the walls with the no-shoots. LT was fine shooting, but the reload was a little questionable and why the RO said watch your muzzle. Also, how long was the entire process fr...

GlennSFX, be sure and let me know the next time you're down. There's another club close by (to me) that also shoots USPSA and Steel Challenge on a monthly basis.. perhaps we'll get a chance to shoot one of them together. I would enjoy meeting you and your son. It's been a wet weekend for pretty muc...

Re: Reloading for USPSA Carry Optics

Shot the Carolina Battle of the Beach Sectional USPSA yesterday. SP9SFx; only had a very few round through it, probably less than 100. Had a Burris Fastfire 3 on top with the 8 MOA dot. Load was mixed brass, Federal small pistol MAGNUM primers, 3.2 grains of Sport Pistol under a 147 grain Blue Bull...

Re: The Reloading Itch Has Started

Hey LT USN (Ret.) for coated bullets, you want to ensure you're not cutting into the coating with the crimp. Best way to test is to use the bullet puller to remove the bullet and inspect the coating. For the Lee factory crimp die, after setting it up, it's 1/2 turn in for light crimp, full turn for ...

Re: Where do you guys find your shooting drills?

I have the "DRYFIRE Reloaded" book by Ben Stoeger. It's really good. I have a couple sets of 1/3 scale USPSA targets I purchased off his website as well. They sell a "sticker" kit to make tuxedo targets also. I made a bunch of stands so I can setup basic stages and classifiers. With 1/3 scale target...

Re: Military vs Civilian Shooter. Which one is better?

Good topic!!! I think the main difference is in the style of training. I have not served, but have friends I shoot with in matches that have. As you mentioned, most infantry only have basic rifle training, and if any pistol, it's very minimal. The military guys I shoot with in IDPA and USPSA, had to...
