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

Seems there hasn't been much activity here. Shot an IDPA match Sat and had a pretty good day. Stage 6 was interesting, first time I've had to shoot the gun while carrying something the entire stage. Stage was called "9mm Madness". As with all IDPA stages, it has a scenario..."While buying 9mm ammo a...

Re: Shooting fast and accurate single handed

Thanks. I will keep some cards to show what the results are. Just did some training and had a little breakthrough. Normally on 'fast' shooting, just after the shot I just wait and see where the gun would end pointing to (2cm up down, left right, I don't mean to the other side of te range :d ), then...

Re: Shooting fast and accurate single handed

That's an interesting course of fire. Closest thing to that I've shot, would be the IDPA 5x5 Classifier. 25 shots all from a static standing position at 10 yards. Includes 5 shots strong hand only, and a 5 reload 5 string. Just to give you some sort of time comparison, I ran the course of fire in 17...

Re: Shooting fast and accurate single handed

Shooting strong or support hand only, is something that just takes practice. It's mainly about trigger control, and not trying to fight the recoil. For us "dot" shooters, it's all about trusting the dot, and not anticipating the recoil on the trigger pull. Your splits are going to be slower no matte...

Re: TP9 SFX trigger pull weight?

Agree with BentAero , the only reason to be looking for "really" light/crisp trigger is for a competition gun. 3-3.5 pounds would be a nice low weight for a range/comp gun, but light in terms of a carry gun. My SFx was setup strictly for competition use. Got the trigger as good as it was going to ge...

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

IDPA match at a local club. Based on the final standings, looks like @GlennSFX burned down most of these stages...nice shooting Glenn. I am still way too inconsistent...good stage, followed by a bad one. For this match I had a stage with 9 points down. Decided to get cute and try to "game" a stage ...

Re: Does anyone shoot an elite combat in competition?

I shot my Combat a couple times in IDPA just to try it. At the time my SFX was my primary comp gun. The relative bore axis of the Combat is the same as the SFX, so theoretically they should be similar. You'll have a little more recoil to deal with, but nothing to worry about. The barrel on the SFX i...

Re: Need front sight fix

Just received an email back from ameriglo.Basically was told the sig sights were usually very tight going on,so apparantly too much material removed to install them. Peening the bottom of the sight and red loctite is the usual fix. Peening will make little dimples that should make it fit tighter. T...

If I push on the sight it only moves a little each way but then stops.I still havent figured out way after 3 years it loosened up.
:-? ...that doesn't really make any sense. I'd still contact Ameriglo and just see what they have to say!!!!

Thanks Glenn,I had an armoror buddy of mine install them since I didnt have a sight pusher,so dont know if he removed material or not.He said they were really tight.With the red loctite can that still be removed if I have to change sights?I know the blue you can heat up to dislodge it.again thanks ...

Re: Need front sight fix

It went on really tight,what would.cause it to loosen up that much,just the vibrations? If it went on tight, it shouldn't loosen up. I had a sight I was messing with to co-witness on my SFX and had to remove some material to get it to fit. I took off a little too much, and that sight did move. But ...

Re: Need front sight fix

I noticed the front sight was loose in the dovetail.Can move it approximately 1/16th of an inch,maybe a little less. I installed an Ameriglo PRO-GLO front sight on a P320 Compact a couple years ago. Sight went on tight with a puller and hasn't budged. I would contact Ameriglo and see what they have...

Helped run an Action Pistol match at my club today, which is designed to introduce new shooter to the sport. Most have only shot statically from a fixed firing line.

Re: Setting up your Holster

Because your belt probably doesn't sit perfectly horizontal on your body, the holster angle will be exaggerated when the belt is off.
