  1. Blue Bullet. VV N320 or Titegroup, pistol don't care.
  2. This. Add tension to the feed lips.
  3. The ? mark at 44.7 is what happens right after the node. See reply above by Inkballedtarget.
  4. Another vote for a used kitchen oven. 220-230F for 30-60 min and you are done. Primer in, out, doesn't matter.
  5. Range was not cleared by RO. Should have been a DQ then. Now what?
  6. No sir. 10.5.14 Retrieving a dropped handgun: A dropped gun must always be retrieved by a Range Officer who will ensure it is unloaded and properly secured in the competitor's holster or a suitable container. The Range Officer may, at his discretion, secure the gun himself or return it to the competitor who will secure it under supervision of the Range Officer. Dropping an unloaded handgun or causing it to fall outside of a course of fire is not an infraction; however, a competitor who retrieves a dropped handgun will receive a match disqualification.
  7. Me too. NOW
  8. First shooter in the squad, first stage of the year at this particular club. Ran the COF, unload show clear, slide forward hammer down, place pistol in new Ghost ultimate holster, well almost...plunk. Right in the sand. Fortunately pistol was unloaded, and I haven't a clue how its even possible for a pistol to fall forward off one of these holsters and not muzzle anyone and everything behind it. Big wake up call. Threw me off for the ret of the day and definitely left the match feeling defeated. Shit happens, learn and move on I guess.
  9. Dan teaches an excellent course. All of the equipment requirements are listed on his website. You will be on the 1000 yd steel in no time with the equipment you listed. 175 T/Smk should do the trick, 42 gr IMR4064.
  10. Elaborate as to why. From what are you basing this theory?
  11. Bueller? Bueller?
  12. It seems everyone runs between 10#-14# recoil springs. I recently picked up an Edge with 12# installed and it felt like the sights didn't want to return to the target as quickly as my Para with an 18ish# spring. I'm not a highly experienced shooter, so my recoil management probably leaves something to be desired. When I installed the 18 in the Edge, I noticed sights returning to target much more quickly. Then I read this article and it all started to make sense : http://www.shootingtimes.com/gunsmithing/recoil-spring-rate-affects-timing/ So, I'll ask: are the lighter springs something that I'll be chasing when my recoil management matures? Because it appears that HEAVIER springs REDUCE total cycle time, and LIGHTER springs INCREASE cycle time. Just trying to understand why the more experienced shooters choose lighter springs. ETA: I'm running a 180gr BB @ about 167PF
  13. Nobody in my family understands why I do that too. I guess I should have been more specific. I'd rather spend more time shooting than reloading while on the clock. Reloads are still critical, since I'm shooting against other limited division competitors.
  14. Started the adventure in Limited, and still there. Got a long way to go, too. While reloads are very important to practice, I prefer to spend my time shooting. I can see the sights, so I use them and figure that will certainly help in a real world scenario, God forbid.
