It's one of those things you just have to try. The SFx has three different lengths for the mag release, base extension, and a medium and large piece you add on. I'm using it with no extension added to the base. The extensions were biting into my support hand. You might have to slightly adjust your grip during the release. As you're inserting the new mag, just return to your normal shooting grip. With practice you wouldn't even know you're doing it.

Steel Challenge/Outlaw Steel Hybrid match today.

I decided to shoot my SFx in Carry Optics with a Holosun 507C mounted on it. As you look at this remember, DISCLAIMER: this was my first match ever using an optic.

Stage 1; got eaten by either the video editing team or the Cookie Monster. 🎬📽

Stage 2; a couple of bobbles but nothing to horrid.



Stage 3; had a couple of OK runs. I'm starting to warm up to the optic.



Stage 4; Oh poop.... Lesson learned for the day. No matter how good the sight picture looks through the Holosun when the sun it out, a cloud will go over at the least inopportune moment. ALWAYS, ALWAYS, ALWAYS turn the battery side of the Holosun to mimic the solar side of the sight. Passing clouds will not be noticed.



Stage 5; Last three runs were SMOKING!



Stage 6; Sometimes I think the steel is alive and mores on it's own. No, really.



All in all, a good time was had by all. The high today was 80 with breathable air vice the normal water suspended in what passes for air in the South.

I will keep shooting the optic; I can wear either my prescription glasses or sunglasses without blurring the sight picture.

Besides, the chicks dig guys who shoot Carry Optics. **== :d (No chickens were hurt in the making of these videos)

Speed Steel shoot at Whidbey Island, WA,
Bay 2 has two shooting position. The distance of the first is 15 yards and the second is 28 yards. Both shown in 7 second clips. I had trouble with the longer shots (the shooter is not me). Let me know if the vids are not reachable.

Yes, that was Tom. He is left handed, and an instructor. I talked to him for the first time that day, he explained what folks here have been helping me with how to aim with iron sights. He explained how he uses the "Dot Drill" to teach proper aiming. His philosophy is that aiming is situation based. This particular type of shoot is repeated 5 times; I posted the one that showed a miss on the stop plate because I thought the video sound shows how attractive shooting steel is given how easy the sound feedback reaches the shooter.

I did have an OK day, which left me wanting to do better, it a was fun day. The 9mm worked flawlessly. I was able to point and shoot on the close-up targets which gave me good beginner times, 4-7 seconds on those.

Well off to a good start for 2020...shot an indoor match yesterday and won it. Makes up for the "DQ" in my last IDPA match in 2019! Was having a great match until the last stage (6), started to run by a hidden target, turned, and just broke the 180! I was PISSED...live and learn!!!

Figures I didn't get any video!!! :sad:

Shot another indoor match yesterday and made sure I had the camera. Had a good day and ended up winning the match. There were four stages, with the last being an all out "how fast can you pull the trigger stage"!!! :lol:

Stage 1...I didn't check my dot when I turned it on and it was real low, took a second or two to get on the initial head shot! :-x

Stage 2...had an extra unnecessary transition on the low portal at the end.

Stage 3...you'll see my head dip down on the transition to the left side of the barrier. There was tape fault line and had to make sure I wasn't stepping over it. The advantage of "wood" outdoors!!!

Stage 4...stalled last shot on left side for some reason... :-? , then a slow reload, tried to make up for it on the 4 remaining targets. Should have been under 8 seconds!

Ordered four TF +0 mag extensions to add some weight to the mags. Just weren't dropping clean!!!!

Spartanburg, SC USPSA match 3/7/20.

Not my best stage of the day, (or worst) but it's the only one I have vid of. Unfortunately you can't see most of the targets, but there are 15 paper and 2 steel, one of which activates a swinger paper target.

It wasn't all bad until I got to the very end and basically forgot to shoot at the 2nd steel plate that was positioned behind the swinger. :!!



Yes, that is two pieces of brass in the air... 🤭

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 shooting, DO IT! Most fun you can have with your clothes on. b-)

The hired "video crew" hit the wrong button for stage four and missing the qualifier was not a biggie as it was uninspiring. Good help is hard to find during these stressful times. :-BD

Stage One. Steel portion was strong hand only. Listen for my comment at the end of the run.



Stage Two



Stage Three

What was the muzzle comment on video 3?

Also, how long was the entire process from registration to match end? Was that the only four minutes that you were shooting?

(Yes, I know that if I just went to a match to observe, all my questions would be answered...)

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 from registration to match end? Was that the only four minutes that you were shooting?

A five stage match will be 4-5 hours depending how many shooters you have. If you're having a really good day and the stages aren't too complicated, your actual time shooting a stage will easily be under 20 sec...so you don't spend much time shooting! Way more taping targets!!!

(Yes, I know that if I just went to a match to observe, all my questions would be answered...) YUP!!!!

NICE JOB!!!!
The reload was a little scary! You were right on the fence with the 180.

I have my first match since 3/8 this Saturday. Fortunately I shot 6 so far for 2020. Four were indoors, and two outdoors. It will be the first match with the new gun, so we'll see how it goes. I've dry fired the $hit out of it...so I'm hoping for good things!!! :-SS

Video one. I'm sure I made some rambling comment in three.

There were 60 shooters in three squads so it takes quite a while. 09:00-13:30 for that day. My total time for 5 different runs was 111 seconds. There's a lot of pasting holes and painting steel involved. Then there's the breakdown of the stages....

USPSA Tier 1 match yesterday at my home club. Somewhere between the stage design, setup, and SO'ing I actually managed to shoot ;-)

Still not feeling it....the CoronaV break from shooting for sure caused me to take a step or two backwards. As always, the SFX ran like a champ.

Looked like a fun day. There were a couple of triple-taps; were they on purpose or accidental? What camera were you using? The audio sounds a hell of a lot better than the drone camera I'm using.

We shot a steel match Sunday and the feels-like was 118 degrees. It took some of the fun out of it. It still beat the hell out of yard work.

I typically triple-tap on swingers/drop turns/out & backs because if I don't, I'm sure to get a "Mike". I've gotten better on motion targets but my instincts tell me to "send another one just in case" ;-)

Camera is really impressive given the cost. It's also tiny and easy to attach to the brim of a hat. Funny you mention drones, because I think that's what this was designed for originally.
