  1. They really do. Uspsa is always a good time, I just wish they held a monthly 3gun match. Their rifle matches are pretty good from what I hear.
  2. Definitely shoot the 1911 with whatever you have in Single Stack. Read up on the Rules. Single stack has a pretty specific belt setup but it is easy to understand once you read it. 8 round mags are better but you can get by with 7 when starting to learn the rules and what you want to do. Good luck and enjoy it!
  3. Those frames look long enough where you shouldn't have to wear the strap. If you wear muffs it will hold them on anyways.
  4. Crossbows DO NOT require the strap unless there is a new model I don't know about. The strap is just there for extra protection to keep them on your face when diving into a fighting position or rolling around in an MRAP or similar so they won't come off when you hit a bump or IED. Most guys never used the strap. Edit: The frames are all the same size.
  5. I have 2 sets and love them. I wear Oakley flak Jackets daily but the Valors are my range glasses. Depending on the muff and amount of time worn they do give me a sore spot where the frames ride but between shooters when resetting I pull my muffs and that helps. Lenses are easy to change and they have multiple color options so that's a plus. Ballistics wise they are Mil rated, I also have some ESS crossbows that I keep in the car as backups or loaners and I like them as well for coverage and protection but I don't like how they fit and feel on my face when shooting.
  6. Forgot to add this! Generally the trauma kit stays in my car but I keep a tourniquet in my range bag. I can apply the TQ quick and slow/stop bleeding with a shirt or rag. Then I can make it to the car and pick up the rest of the kit if needed. I need to add steel resetting gloves to my bag but I keep forgetting.
  7. Buds no longer does any competition style anything in their range. They even took out their reactive steel range. S&D does IDPA Tuesdays as well but the stages are the same. Also Rockcastle is in Bowling Green Ky and if you are coming from Paducah it will be closer. They hold all kinds of matches 3gun USPSA precision rifle cowboy etc.
  8. Only thing I would add is getting a load manual before you even buy your press. Lee makes a good one. Once you get it start reading and learning all you can about how to spot over pressure, how everything works etc. I have an older manual that when I got started stayed in the bathroom and made for nice reading material at times.
  9. I copied these and built my own with bullets out for my SS rig. https://www.skdtac.com/Ready-Tactical-Pistol-Mag-Pouch-p/rdt.103.htm I am planning on building some for my 2011, and other pistols just to have loaner pouches and different rigs for different guns. I think I have $5 in 6 pouches. Look like crap but they work great. Planning on modifying my design a bit to add a tek-lok to give me some tilt as needed.
  10. Some things you could add are chap stick, climbers chalk for your hands, hand warmers if its cold for 3 gun I carry an extra shotgun tube spring extra mag or shotgun pouches in various orientations depending on a stage as well as loaner gear. Lately I have had an extra magazine tube clamp for some reason.
  11. That stuff is so frustrating. Bought a thousand 9mm locally and almost 200 were stepped like that. I check every single case now.
  12. Not saying he has to earn the right to buy a new gun, just he would be buying 2 to keep carry and comp similar. So his money would be better spent on ammo or training if he was looking to improve his scores. Also he has a 34, 17, and a 19 I was mistaken. He never mentioned what division but being all 9mm glocks I would assume production if he were going for limited and looking to improve I would definitely agree to switching platforms.

  14. The OP said he has a glock 17. That will take him far enough to where it will be his gear holding him back from progressing any further.
  15. I wore a blackhawk riggers belt when I was enlisted. Worked fine for me then but the velcro did wear out in about a year and a half. Granted I was using it as my daily belt so it got more abuse than a shooter would unless they are dry firing every day of the week.
