  1. There's one here in Billings, MT at Beartooth Guns. Don't remember price. He got it in for me but I picked one up used from a friend a couple weeks ago so it's still there.
  2. I know this is an older thread but I wanted to see if everyone is still liking theirs. I'm thinking of switching to one from a Slideride and ordering an Atlas with one on it. Thanks.
  3. Yeah I've been using it for about a year now (when I started shooting open) and I think it works well though I really haven't tried anything else besides doing a work up of HS-6 which I didn't like. I'm thinking about trying Silhouette when I run out of my last 8# keg. My load is 7.3gn 572, WSP, 124gn MG JHP, 1.165 OAL which makes 172 PF.
  4. This is what I did as well. I just took a sander to the back edge to take the sharpness off of it and it works great! the only real downfall for the whole thing is that it's not as aesthetically pleasing when you look at it.
  5. From what I know and have seen, it's made by Holosun and is very similar to the HS510C without the sunshade or QR on it.
  6. I end up only double plugging when I'm shooting and I can pretty much only hear the "MR" command and the buzzer. (HL Impact sports, molded in ear plugs) Then when I'm not shooting I take the in ear plugs out and keep them around my neck so I can still hear people and talk as needed.
  7. I bought 5-40 x 1/2" ones and they were too short when I mounted my thumbrest. (cheely offset mount & RHT loud pedal). I order a 50 pack of 7/8" and just cut them to length. that way I know I will always have long enough screws to put whatever combination of mount and thumbrest on my guns.
  8. For Open I use a 15yd zero so I'd imagine there wouldn't be anything different with CO. I think it's good because it's right in the middle of just about any distance you will encounter.
  9. I still haven't really done a thorough comparison between 572 and any of the others but I really like it. It throws well, has decent case density and I don't have to fill the entire case to make major with 124 gr MG jhps. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. A couple of buddies and I went to A1 and shot with some guys a used to shoot with from another state. They're really nice dudes but I think we'll try to squad with some better shooters next time to try and get an extra push/pressure to keep up. I felt too relaxed the whole time and in turn, shot slow and relaxed. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. It was a great match (and my first major)despite having to shoot stage 7-12 Friday morning in the nastiness. Wish I could've shot everything in the dry/almost dry to see where I really stood overall as I'm trying to get better. Also, Robert thanks for being an awesome RO for 13 even though it was thrown out. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Just as an update...my PSA Glock PCC with the HF 24c ran perfectly at the first match I ever shot with myself and 2 other people shooting it throughout. ~600 rnds Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. I think it's 6's. I feel the dot moves less but is a little slower on the transition which just makes me feel like if I was in better shape or have been shooting it longer that 8 months I could probably not tell a difference.
  14. I had the Pucker Factor when I chrono'd at A1 on Sunday. I wasn't really paying much attention to exact numbers but everything was over 1350fps (shooting 124 9 major). Chrono guy types in my bullet weight (123.9 weighed) after 3 shots and it comes up 138pf. He asks me if I declared minor. I said no and my face turns white and my heart sinks because everything I had chrono'd on my CED was 172-174pf. He checks and re-types in my bullet weight and it pops up at 174! I don't think I've ever been so relieved in my shooting career.
  15. +1 for CK. I have 2 of them and haven't run into any problems with them at all. both were bought used off here.
