  1. Does using a small pistol magnum or small rifle primer affect the burn cleanliness as opposed to a standard small pistol primer? I use Hs6 in my 38sc and dont find it all that particularly dirty. I do have 4# of 3n38 to try out after my Hs6 is gone.
  2. I just put together a CO rig that I am pretty happy with. I went with a G17 MOS and a vortex razor 6 MOS. I really like it so far. Not a big deal for me since it will be a dedicated gaming gun but the biggest negative to the razor IMO is the locking screw location which is at the rear of the sight near the bottom. I had to completely remove the rear factory iron sight to be able to use it. I am not sure you could use a rear sight and still be able to access the screw because of the clearance.
  3. I do the magpul mags. They seem to work ok. If I could find some weighted basepads for them, I would probably get them. Just for the piece of mind that they will drop when I want them to.
  4. Limcat is a bucket list gun for sure. Very nice!
  5. I have the Vortex 2.5-10x32 FFP on mine. It's a great little scope and you won't be disappointed. Deviates from the trueness part a little tho
  6. Once a week with 100 rounds if I am lucky
  7. I have an SVI open gun coming in 38sc next week. It is my 1st 38sc gun. I have several lbs of HS6 and 115 PD jhp left over from when I used to shoot a 9mm open gun. Was going to start about 8.4 grains at 1.200" OAL and start moving up from there. Anybody with more experience at 38sc have any good advice with this combo?
  8. That's very interesting. I have never broken it down quite like that before.
  9. I put super fast reloads in the same category as a super fast sub second draw and 1st shot. Both are great and if you can do both that's awesome but rarely will those be the reason you will win a stage. The .2-.5 you give up on a slower reload can be made up with efficient movement and quicker shooting.
  10. How often do you guys find yourselves changing divisions? Do you decide what division you will shoot and stick with it for an entire year or longer? The reason I ask is I have a nice production set up, limited set up, and now carry Optics set up that I enjoy shooting. I find myself at my monthly matches just kind of making the decision that morning which one I'm going to shoot. I know I will probably never get as good as I could be by jumping divisions every time out but I just am curious on your thoughts about it. Production and carry Optics are the same platform with a Glock but my limited setup is a 2011 if that matters.
  11. Another vote for Badlands. Bobby and Steve are amazing instructors and a wealth of long range shooting knowledge. I have taken their basic and advanced long range courses.
  12. I just received 3 of his magazines to use in my Sailors custom 9mm open pistol. I have not fired a round through the magazines as of yet but I did notice that one of the mags is rather tight and does not drop free in my pistol. The other two work perfectly. I am going to go ahead and email them and see if they will either replace or fix this mag.
  13. I second the Lyman green corn cob media. Put in a cap full of nufinish every couple of runs. I usually let mine go for 4 hours just because I like my brass to really shine. I change media at the 1st of every year. Along with the corncob, I also put in about 2 cup fulls of long grain rice. The rice does a suprisingly good job of cleaning the brass while the corn cob polishes. That is my secret recipe and it has worked for years so I don't see me changing.
  14. For IDPA There is no minimum trigger weight pull in IDPA. No Dropped and Offset holsters No Inner/Outer belt (CR Speed etc) No Competition style mag pouches (CR Speed etc) No stainless or tungsten guide rods (SSP) ok for ESP No Stippling of grips (Grip tape is ok) SSP- ok for ESP You could add a magwell for ESP too, but would not be allowed in USPSA Production. I stand corrected. Thanks paul
  15. I am not 100 percent on this but I believe there is a minimum poundage on your trigger pull weight in idpa
