  1. If you're not going to compete, I don't see much use for a gun designed 100% for a particular type of competition. Especially if you're not going to be reloading anytime soon. If you want to shoot suppressed or have a gun that is more versatile, I'd go with the host. All depends on what you want to do with it.
  2. Ok, between a KL-12 and a Tooth and Nail package, which one and why? The KL-12 is substantially more but is it really that much better, if at all?
  3. I'm interested in trying this package with the upgraded receiver. Does anyone have any experience with it? I searched the forum and found a thread that was about a year old and was wondering if there were any updates.
  4. I do. A few others around here do too.
  5. A good bipod and rear bag. Maybe a few different sized bags based on the angle you're shooting and to use if shooting off barricades. Not sure what the class covers but a good tripod and hog saddle (or similar) is worth it's weight in gold. A sling you can use to load into the tripod makes it better. Always support the gun as much as possible. Front support is almost mandatory. If you have the front supported, take a second to see if you can support the back. Example, you're knee (reverse kneeling), a tripod leg, a large rear bag or pack, etc. taking a couple seconds to build a stable position is always better than rushing the shot. Oh, and keep your shoulders square to the target for better recoil management. There's a lot to learn but that should get you started.
  6. I just did the same thing. I have a new open gun I'm waiting to pick up because it sounded more fun than CO at the time. I like the sound of this change though since I carry a gun with an RMR every day with more than 10 rounds in it. Looks like I have two divisions to have fun with now.
  7. I carried a STI Marauder on duty for a short time. I went to it after being tired of single stack magazines. The gun was great but the magazines were an issue. They are not near as finicky as some say. However, continuously dropping them on concrete ranges and being stepped on in shoot houses took its toll. Depending on how and where you train is going to be a factor. My competition 2011's have no issues since all the matches are on dirt or grass and they typically don't get stepped on. My fix was an M&P with a Apex FSS trigger and RMR for duty (the magazines can take a beating) and an open 2011 for matches. Good luck with whatever you choose.
  8. I'd have a look at the M&P as well.
  9. Got it. Thanks guys, just wanted to make sure it was normal.
  10. Just received a new Manny Bragg "futuristic" holster for my Glock. It's full of screws and bolts but most seem to just be holding the holster together. It holds the gun fine with the lock on. However, turning the lock of there is zero retention other than gravity holding it in. It won't fall out forward due to the pieces on the bottom holding the rail on the frame, but it takes absolutely no effort at all to remove it upward. Seems like a there should be something to get slight retention even when unlocked. I previously used Ghost holsters with SVI guns in the past and there was far better retention when it was unlocked. I almost scared to walk with this holster. The holster did not come with any instructions, anyone have an idea or is this just how it is?
  11. Good ol' panic buying making demand a lot higher than supply. Same thing happened a few years ago. Any time the ban word starts to be used this happens.
  12. Diffusion, LM (almost always), and full extended tubes for me.
  13. I use the briley extended LM choke 95% of the time in my 3gun M2. I carry a diffuser and full chock in my bag but rarely use them. Between those three I doubt there will be a stage that wouldn't be taken care of. For sporting clays I just use the set that came with my super sport.
  14. Aimpoint T-1 is the best I've used so far.
  15. I used the Magpul MS2 sling with their back plate on my 10.5" m4 entry gun. It's pretty nice but there is no control of the rifle once you let it go to transition to a handgun or need to go hands on with something. Got in the way a bit when fast roping. I put a forward mount on the rail so I could unhook it from a single point and make it a two point for fast roping which made it a lot better. I recently switched back to a two point sling from Ares Armor. I'm much happier with it. It adjusts extremely quickly and keeps the rifle from banging into your legs/knee pads when transitioning. http://aresarmor.com/store/Item/aahuskey2pt
