  1. I shot leadhead bulk 9mm from ammo clearance back when I was a beginner... maybe chrono'd at 140-145 power factor. it worked well at the time. Had 1 squib tho... out of maybe 2-3000 rounds... sooooo yea. Up to you. I bought a Dillon 650 right after that... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Yeaaaaaa... that is a good argument, seeing as how ipsc requires a 5lb trigger pull on your first pull... (every pull in the case of a stricken fired gun) But you gotta figure, with his grip strength, that guy can probably break your hand with his handshake. So you have to factor in grip strength with winning matches in limited division. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. I think the statement "buy once cry once" is misunderstood.... There's nothing inherently wrong with an SPS or STI... however, they're the most popular because of their price point not because they're "the best"... Most people tend to start there and migrate over to a semi/custom platform because they're either bored and want something shiner, or they feel they're ready for peak performance, whatever that may mean... Theoretically a Ck is an "upgraded" STI... better parts but same labor. So that's not a bad choice. You could get one and keep it forever without wondering if your sacrificing any performance gains... However, a semi/custom builder spends twice the amount of time per gun than a factory shop does, so they say the quality and performance will never be an issue. For me, I was in same boat as you... I want to shoot open now and the steel grip is all the rage on 2011s... adding one to an existing sti type gun costs a lot if you can't do your own figment... Which is why I opted for an Atlas Chaos.... (hopefully I'm in the April batch) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Yes, but ask them or anyone who's trained with them and you'll come to find that their hand strength is way above average, leading to their muzzle flip, even when shooting 40cal glocks, to be very manageable and consistent with sub .25 splits... Not many of us can shoot a glock that fast and be accurate. Again, it's mostly preference and experience with the same firearm over and over that leads to any kind of success.

  5. Depends on your grip strength... if you, even remotely, think your around average or better... get a CZ/tanfo and go have some fun. If your a plumber or have incredibly strong hands, then sure, glocks are perfectly fine... Like it's been said above me... there are those who've won with every gun type... however the likelihood with a plastic gun is lower I think... Maybe it's an experience thing... it takes a while to build grip strength and a steel framed gun will be a good shortcut. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. I'm not familiar with their whole line of products, as far as the names go, but I can say the belt with the ELS holes does have Velcro on the inside. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Didn't they raise the weight limit to 45oz? Or something more than 35... some of the steel production guns are being setup to run now... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. I think people were willing to experiment with the fastfire because it was the cheapest to get into the division... I tried the same with an old rmr i had... I love the idea of dots and want to shoot open eventually, but personally, I'm not competitive with the rmr or similarly sized red dots (smallest on market) so I took it off... I might try again with a deltapoint or rts2 as I could use those as backups for an open gun in the future. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Wscott66 Yes, I had trouble making it work with heart hammer, instructions were published online, I was directed to them and followed them (I didn't have much to modify), gun shot fine... About a week or two later, Titan hammers were in stock from overseas and the bolo worked just fine with it as well... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Mines comes loose too... right now there's some slight wobble to it if you touch it... And the elevation screw, omg... it's backed out on me multiple times... I'm about ready to lock tight it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. I thought i remember seeing an Instagram pic or post somewhere a long time ago with lok grips on a tanfo... (obviously modified or maybe a custom 1 of a kind, not sure) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. It's probably designed to bridge the gap by getting guys to switch from a lighter 24oz glock into another polymer gun with a bit more weight and features from the euro style guns.... not going to sell much I'm sure... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  14. What helped me (not trying to convince you to go bullets out again) is haul ass in dry fire, go ahead and flub some reloads... On the clock, I've never missed a reload with the tanfo *knocks on wood*, being that in live fire, I'm too busy looking for more targets or moving, that I'm not pulling off sub second reloads like I'm always trying to do in practice... unconsciously going a bit slower than deliberate practice. so going a bit slower in live fire = mag goes in every time. Kinda like the "accuracy vs speed" mode argument... if you go 110% in practice with some success, your 90-100% match mode should be good to go. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Most everyone loads +/- 1.10 with non-reamed tanfo barrel... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
