  1. I got a new Fire 7. This one and the previous Fire 8 I got are initially set up for my Amazon account. After DL Practiscore and maybe an app or two what's the best way to make it not be able to buy stuff anymore from Amazon through this particular tablet? Was it just a better idea to just not do the initial set-up under the account that the fire was bought under? Basically if I loose this thing at the range I don't want anybody to buy crap with it using my account.
  2. Have shot 308 Xtremes out of a 700 bolt gun using Trailboss. Decent groups at 25 yards. But couldn't consistently hit an IPSC sized paper at 100 yards for some reason. So personally I'm going to look at plated at the very last resort. Have a couple of boxes of the 123 Hornady SP's and SST's and .308 110 gr M1 Carbine bullets from Armscor and Magtech. Have pulled out the heads and put them on some factory 7.62x39 of Russian make. Just waiting for some time when I can go and see what they do on paper.
  3. Interesting. The Mustang was supposed to be a game changer because it was the first fighter that could go all the way to Berlin while escorting Allied bombers. Wonder why and how this guy's Spitfire could go all the way to Berlin. Did it save that much weight being unarmed that it could go all the way and back?
  4. I got a Fire HD 8 a couple of days ago. Played Candy Crush, read a couple of books, installed Practi Score, etc. Didn't actually use it outside. Was watching a video that was delivered for some reason by Amazon to the tablet. While watching it it died. No power. Tried plugging it in with the supplied charger and it still doesn't work. Oh well. Anyways I think the HD 8 is a little wide for my hands to be used in the field comfortably. I was going to wait until these Black Friday sales, but I'm going to go ahead and order a Fire 7 and return the HD 8 for repair/replacement.
  5. Anybody use a Lyman M die for pistol? Did you happen to notice it being smoother than the lee charging dies during case extraction? M die good for a progressive press for pistol applications?
  6. I flare and charge with a Lee powder die. I was loading some rounds using new brass and I noticed that the flaring charging die really sticks noticeably. It enters smoothly but when I pull out the brass it requires notable abrupt force. What do you guys do to tune this out? Do you use a different die brand that doesn't have this problem? Do you flare at a different station and not at the charge station? Thanks.
  7. Looking for an affordable tablet good of Practiscore use. To be used outdoors. Screen hopefully won't be too glary in sun. Doesn't overheat too easily. Somewhat tough enough to be carried in a range bag. Good battery life. Reliable. Durable. No problems with synching. Etc. What would you guys recommend? What models have you guys used and how did it go? Thanks. (Note: Wasn't getting relevant hits on this sub forum when I searched. So sorry to the search Nazis if there are already a bunch of threads on this)
  8. So the advantage is to the club? They get an extra $3 for when they have to reshoot the classifier to get an L10 classifier? Shooters won't be able to shoot in L10 to begin with?
  9. OK I read the rules in more detail. They don't consider the target neutralized with just one A, A/B or head shot? Do we start with the safety on? Or do we start with the safety off? Thanks.
  10. I'm not seeing the advantage or the point of getting rid of L10. Keep both and let the shooter decide what division they want their classifier to count in. If you get rid of L10 that means they can't get a classification in L10. They can only get classified in Limited.
  11. Well then there you go. 5 Dogs will be all ten round.
  12. 5.2.8 Competitors deemed by the Match Director to be full-time law enforcement officers with arrest powers or military personnel on current active duty orders, may be entitled to use their duty holsters or similar holster and related equipment when such equipment does not strictly satisfy the equipment or other requirements of the declared Division. The Range Master will remain the final authority in respect of the safety and suitability of using such equipment at USPSA matches. The use of such equipment, except as otherwise permitted in the rules, is restricted to Level I matches only.
  13. The wording over years and the section may have changed. But see 5.2.8. I'm just saying that LEOs have been given and are given leeway in terms of equipment.
  14. Probably. I guess you can hash it out with the Director.
  15. And you know there is precedent for having LEO's be different. I don't know if it is still in the books but drop-down holsters were OK to be used if it was their duty gear. Couldn't use them for regular people.
