  1. You were still in the course of fire. 8.3.8 and 10.5.3 apply. Should have been a DQ.
  2. Depending on the gun you have, the factory magwell may not fit. The guns that come from the factory with a magwell have the frame cut to fit the magwell. If your frame hasn't been cut, then the factory magwell won't fit. The Dawson magwell for Para Ordnance should fit.
  3. What we need is a new division. "Limited Minor".
  4. I'm having the same issue on my android phone but not my IPhone.
  5. It is "sort of" a Novak cut. I put a Dawson fixed rear on mine and I had to file it to get it to fit.
  6. I had the same issue but it came from switching uppers and lowers. I came to the conclusion that my trigger bar and striker were on the opposite ends of the allowable tolerances. I could induce my reset firing by pulling the trigger, racking and holding up on the rear of the slide as I released the trigger. This was done with an empty gun. I could make it happen every time with this particular striker/trigger bar combo. I replaced the trigger bar and striker and the problem ceased.
  7. It is the same consistency as titegroup. I looked back at the hodgdon website and longshot is the only powder that shows up for 460 Rowland. If you have never used a 460 conversion there are some things that I experienced that may be helpful. I bought mine to take to Alaska but I could never get it to be 100% reliable. I think that most of the unreliability was due to the slide locking back during recoil. I rounded off a slidestop and that took care of that but I still had a few failures to feed that left me uncomfortable using it for protection.
  8. I've used Hodgdon Longshot and got good results with a 230 gr bullet. Check their website for data. That is where I got my info from.
  9. I would go with the G22 since it free. From my experience the 22 will shoot as accurately as the 35. I know other people like the longer sight radius. I like the longer barrel length because it gives me extra power factor. If both were free I would go with the 35. I would however buy a factory 4.5# connector. The good news is you really can't go wrong either way.
  10. The goal here is to have fun. To me the shooting is fun whether it is with my .40, 9mm or .22 conversion. For local matches I shoot limited minor all the time and have a blast. It costs about 40% less to reload 9mm vs .40 and you can over come the PF disadvantage in a smaller pond. I do however shoot major at big matches to even it up a bit. So I can't really tell you not to buy one, but I can say that I would get the Tactical 4.15.
  11. I agree with what Bryan45 said. I don't think long range stages using straight time or IDPA style scoring will ever work very well. The problem is that the long range stage usually takes a lot longer time than the regular stages. You can beat the another competitor by 10% on the regular stages but if they beat you by 10% on the long range stage they will probably win. I think a long range stage that had a set time and ammo limit would work well in a points system. If you had 5 targets from 100 to 500 yard and gave the competitor 1-2 minutes and 30 rounds and let them get all the points they could by working through the targets from 100 to 500 and then starting over if they have time. Whoever hits the most gets the most stage points and there would be no need for penalties for not shooting at a target
  12. If we used kinetic energy, then a 115gr 9mm at 1087fps has more energy than a 230gr .45 at 718fps. This is the minimum velocity for the 9mm to make minor and the minimum for .45 to make major. 9mm 115gr at 1087 =301.65ft-lb 40 180gr at 917 =336.01 ft-lb 45 230gr at 718 =263.22ft-lb
  13. Chainring, The flush fitting tube is 7+1, but don't be tempted. It looks better but for 3gun I have seen several stages that have only 9 rounds of shotgun. You will be at a disadvantage on these stages.
  14. I have the rifle sighted 18.5" gun and I really like the rifle sights. The ghost ring sights sit too high and the gun doesn't mount correctly for me. What you will find though is that the magazine tube that makes it 8+1 will stick out past the end of the barrel about an 2.5 inches or so. It doesn't look good but it doesn't affect the function either. You will probably want to play around with your chokes also. I use the modified and usually don't have a problem with any steel.
  15. I don't see any reason not to get it. I have owned bunches of Kimbers and they have all been reliable. My current SS gun in .45 is a Kimber that I picked up for similar money. The only things that I have done to it is to take some metal off of the inside of the mag release, so that the mags fall freely when pressing too hard, and add a magwell.
