  1. I did my first match this past Sunday using my duty gear and I was times were about the same as everyone in my squad. I'm just going to keep using my duty gear untill i start going to larger matches where ill have to use a different setup to stay legal.

  3. Quick update I shot 24/58 overall and 4/23 in my division. I think I did okay for my first event like this. When i figure out how to post practiscore on here and get my videos all uploaded I will post back.
  4. Thanks for all the advice I have most of my gear all together. planning on dry firing and cleaning everything spotless tonight. I talked a friend into coming to spectate since he doesn't want to shoot, so ill have him video me so I can see what needs work. My goal for tomorrow is just not to be DQ with a secondary goal of not being last lol. Looking forward to having fun, meeting people, and getting my feet wet. I will let you all know how it goes tomorrow.
  5. Thanks for the clarification, it is an all classifier so it will be shooting from a box so moving will be limited. I'm going to be using my work gear so there will be no type a speed holstering with my level 3 lol
  6. Thanks for the advice Ill make sure I have everything ready and be helping set up the stages between shooters. The only camera I have would be a go pro but that dosnt seem like it will capture enough to catch any mistakes I make. I know that finger in the trigger guard is the biggest thing so for clarification the only time my finger should be on trigger is while the sights are on target? what about during the draw can I start prepping the trigger while I'm presenting to the target?
  7. So by chance my schedule had open up and I decided to enter an all classifier in Wisconsin this Sunday, 4/23. This will be my first match and I know not to go faster then what I can safely shoot. I will be focused on safety, USPSA rules and having a good time. I'm looking for some words of wisdom and anything I should know going into this. At this range there is a mandatory help setting the courses up in the morning. Also is there any specific ammunition I need, all I know isI will be shooting 124gr since that is what I use for work. Ill be shooting in limited with a g17 if it matters. Also how long does it take to get a USPSA membership number so score could be recorded? Thanks for any help.
  8. Thanks for the suggestions I think I may pick a variety, Do any of you use Power Pistol that is what my buddy suggested.
  9. looks like Ill just take the light off to make this a little easier lol
  10. Hey everyone I'm looking to start down the path of reloading and have been doing a lot of research and slowly buying everything and have a question about powder selection. It seems like there are several types of powder that everyone seems to recommend. So my question is should I purchase 1# of several different brands and see which works best for me or should I just pick one, buy a bulk order and then next order choose a different one? After reading everything it seems like some guns prefer different loads etc. while others disagree and say shoot what you can get the best deal on. Just looking for some advice before I spend money on a large order. I'll be shooting 9mm and using a lee turret press, just starting to get into uspsa but most of my practice is LEO related. I'm not looking to save money with reloading but more the satisfaction of shooting a round I made. Thanks to anyone who will help this new guy out.
  11. That does make more sense in what I am trying to accomplish. Now with the LEO exemption of gear for level 1 matches will I be able to run with my light on the gun as well or will that be up to the MD/RO of the match?
  12. I completely agree with not waiting until i'm "ready" before I start, like you say that day will never come then. But with my rotating days off and shifts it looks like I I wont be able to get to my first match until late may/ early June when i switch to a more regular schedule. Either my day off doesn't fall on a match or I'm working mid-day during event day. Love the job but hate the schedule lol. I have no objections to using my duty gear for a couple matches for practice, where else will I be able to train in that type of environment besides work. I'm very competitive so I see myself being one of those guys that gets frustrated with my duty gear, but like hi-power said you preform like you train. Plus my bday is coming up and the SO is needs some ideas....what perfect timing lol. Not to start off a new topic but looks like I'm leaning toward BT black ice holster, daa belt, and ghost pouches. Thanks for the responses and if you have any other tidbits to share im all ears.
  13. After thinking it over I'm leaning towards production because from what I researched there is a lot more production shooters in my area and I like the idea of having to plan stages with multiple reloads( maybe i'm just weird like that lol), plus i already have 7 mags. Now going from a level 3 holster to a level 1 holster will that cause a lot of problems or will having two different set ups with equal practice help curve that problem? Example being I don't want to be on duty and have to pull my weapon and I just start yanking on it like its a level 1 or vice versa.
  14. My goal in competing is to win eventually but just want to get get my feet wet in competitions. Thanks for the info on the duty gear.
  15. Hello everyone, I'm new to the competition scene and looking for some advice. I currently work as a LEO and want to start shooting in USPSA production this season but had a few concerns with training. For work I carry a G17 with streamlight tac light in a level 3 holster and flap top mag pouch at 11oclcok on belt. I know I cant have the light on for production and the mag pouches will have to be moved back to be legal. I also have to qualify pretty regular and I'm also practicing for the swat qualifier. So here is my question, what type of complications will I run into have two different setups. Is it really just as simple to equally practice with both. Anything I should pay special attention too? Any and all advice would be appreciated.
