    Looks for Match
  1. Front to back would be logical choice now that I think about it. There will be stages where you won't go through all your mags so it makes sense to start with the closest reach and work your way around to the back. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  2. When you guys reload, do you go for the front most mag and work your way backwards or back to front or random? Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  3. I think you're gonna do great. I'm behind the curve quite a bit from you. I shot my 1st gun about a year ago. I bought my 1st pistol in Feb. I've been going to an indoor range about once a week since then. Shooting paper. Quite limiting. I did get to go out to BLM land with a group of friends that shoot. We set up some targets so I was able to get a taste of shooting from the draw, transitions, and shooting on the move. Man did I have fun. Only made me want to compete more. I'm nursing a broken neck right now. Wearing a cervical collar so I was really limited in what I could do. Did it while surfing. I get it off next month and start PT. Hoping I can do my 1st match in July. Till then, lots of dry fire with the holster, mag swaps, etc. Just trying to practice this as much as possible. This post has been really helpful. Hope you don't mind me asking questions as well. Don't want to hijack [emoji12] Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  4. Cool. Thanks for that. I plan on shooting Production. At least at this point. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  5. Regarding the safety again... I have a DA/SA with a manual safety. I understand that I will have to start with the hammer decocked so my 1st shot will be DA. Will I also have to have the safety engaged? Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  6. Question from another new guy... Reading the rule book, I could have swore reading that you must engage the safety when moving between targets. Yet, I don't see this mentioned anywhere else nor do I see this happening in all the videos on YouTube I've watched. Do you have to engage the safety when on the move?

  7. Interesting debate. I read through the rules and the post. My conclusion is that if I swap out the grips to another set that has the same profile as the factory grips I should be ok. I'm gonna practice some more with the stock grips to see if i can tune my technique some. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  8. I'm appreciate the suggestion. It may be something i just have to live with and practice. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  9. I'm planning on shooting Production Class. Is something like this paddle release Prod legal? Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  10. I started practicing swapping out mags to get quicker. One thing I quickly noticed is that I have to adjust the pistol slightly in my right hand in order to reach the mag release button with my right thumb. I'm shooting a CZ SP-01 with the stock rubber grips. Is it ideal to not have to adjust your grip to release the mag? Could thinner grips help me if so? Any other suggestions? Oh... please move if this is not the right forum for this post. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  11. Got it. Thanks for clarifying. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  12. Can you explain what you mean here? I'm following this thread too. Trying to learn as much as I can before my first match. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  13. Cool. Funny thing is that I forgot to polish the sides of the inside of the lower where the trigger bar sits and rubs. The thought of trying to insert the damn trigger pin again probably meant I wouldn't break it down to finish this for a while. I may do it sooner trying this technique.
  14. This was kind of my thinking. I don't want to have to buy twice but I also don't want to shell out a bunch of cash, for higher end equipment, and then end up not really pursuing competition shooting in the long run. I also know that my skill is going to be what limits me for a while, not the gear. BTW, I'm glad you mentioned the mag pouches because that's my next purchase and I wasn't sure if I should spend a bit more on those or buy Uncle Mikes. Good to know. I've never worn a holster but was able to intuit that the paddle would make the gun sit higher than the other hangers. Glad to hear it's comfortable.
  15. So I've been shopping for a OWB holster for my CZ 75 SP-01. Its the standard variant. I've narrowed it down to the Safariland 578 Pro Fit. I will use this holster for shooting Production. I'm planning for my first match in July. My question is should I buy a different attachment system than the paddle it comes with? If so, what do you recommend? Initially I plan on using a stiff leather belt that about 2" wide. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
