  1. I know I had to go with a 11lb recoil spring to get my Glock to run major. I had the SJC 11 port comp though.
  2. Improving the mental game is just as important. Finding the way to bring your mental focus, even when you are not "feeling it" is a part of the game or games. Now, all that goes out the window if you overdue yourself. You are the only one that can make that call. I, personally, don't find it mentally difficult to switch between styles of shoots. If it gives you a problem, then follow Bkreutz advice, or find a way to up your mental game. Another way to go is to try to fit your match schedule to when you are sure you can bring the mental focus you expect to have and shoot whatever style of match fills the bill. Much of the differences in the game can be worked on in dry fire and not have a detrimental effect of switching styles of shoots.
  3. You used my name, all that follows is your mistake. Had you not done that, and responded to the OP, I would have had no reason to respond. Making assumptions about somebody is often a reason for them to get "wound a little tight". I am sure you don't want to hear my assumptions of your excuse.
  4. WTH are you talking about? I misread/misunderstood what tanks said earlier. He made a clarification for me, which I already responded to. Then you make a non-relevant post about points down. Now you make the assumption that I have not shot IDPA before, and that I have shot USPSA? I realize that you are giving guidance, based off of your assumption. So, I will leave that to those that the assumption fits.
  5. Gotcha. Misunderstood what you were saying.
  6. Maybe I missed something but, CCP is 8 rounds in the mags.
  7. Details count? Hmmm..
  8. I bet he knows that Carry Optics is minor power factor only. He didn't mention making major.
  9. When I built on a Lone Wolf slide it came bare, meaning no channel liner (plastic sleeve). It is very tight and difficult to install. However, if you use the correct tool it is very simple. Take a look for a channel liner install tool. Maybe, someone else has a cheaper way. But that is what I used.
  10. You would be right, if this discussion was about old rules. Considering that the title of the thread is "New Rules for 2017?", that might be a give away.
  11. I must have missed that. I don't see what you are talking about. Can you help me out?
  12. Neither squads or stages were locked to devices in my case. We were running 2 squads.
  13. I had the same problem as described above. A shooter was DQ'd and as you try to go to the next stage, the tablet would show "Practiscore has stopped working". Restarted Practiscore, restarted the tablet, but neither made any difference. I had a backup tablet that was able to score the remaining stages. I was able to pull the info from the "stopped" tablet to my phone, which had not been used in the match. When I did and tried to then pull up another stage it also would stop working. It seems clear that a DQ is causing the problem. Remove the DQ and it would then run.
  14. 6.6 should get you real close to what you want. I hope you are prepared for quite a bit of smoke. HS-6 will definitely be smoky.
  15. I'll add more to the bandwagon. DK and don't worry about any others.
