  1. We are thinking about building wall bases out of steel. I have seen ones that have a flat piece of steel with pipes welded vertically to hold the 2x2 for a wall. I was wondering if anyone had any info for me on these? Like how thick is the flat base metal, what ID of pipe to use, and how tall the pipes need to be. I have a metal fab shop that is a client, and I can get the steel much cheaper, but I don't know what exactly what I need so I can tell them. Thanks in advance. Matt
  2. I think carry optics is the place to be if you are apprehensive about the "speed" that you need to shoot in open to do well. Since it is minor scoring, Alpha's are the only way to go. I'm not saying you can't be fast in CO, but it isn't the same as open. If CO was at the point that it is now when I started shooting open, I would have shot that instead of open. But now I am full on dark side and Open is the only way to go for me #Dotlife
  3. Well I was the one that started this thread, and now I have one whole season in open. This is the class that I was always supposed to be shooting and I have had several people tell me as much. I started placing much higher in matches after about a month or so of shooting open. Not just because of the capacity, but because I could finally go as fast as I wanted to. My trigger finger speed is still holding me back a bit, but I am working on that as best as I can. I haven't really found much advise for speeding up my trigger finger, but I am still blasting away at it. For the people that think that open is "easy" I would beg to differ. There are no excuses and nothing to blame your performance on, so it is all on you. I really like that aspect of it. I can be as good as I want to be if I invest the time. This season I used to just get a feel for the pace and getting used to the dot. If I can find the time with two small kids and a crazy wife, I will get some practice in the off season and really make a run at Master class for the season. Dry fire would be my recommendation for anyone getting into Open. OR like someone else said, try Carry Optics instead and see if you like the dot. My shooting buddy switched to CO and he is shooting much better. He has some issues with his eyes that was really holding him back. Look out next season...........Here I come
  4. Deltapoint Pro Dot Failures

    Here is one other thing that I would like to mention. During a match, I leave it turned on all day. When I make ready I have to bump the optic with my hand and it "wakes back up" and I am good to go. I don't like the fact that the intensity adjustment is also the On Off switch. I just turn it on at the safe table and set it to the brightest setting and leave it alone for the day.

    Same set up for me. I like it LOUD and BLASTY!
  6. 38 SC Brass?

    Hey I love shooting 38 SC but I am tired of having to buy new brass all the time. Does anyone have a source for SC brass that is maybe once shot?
  7. Deltapoint Pro Dot Failures

    The one time it happened, I was shooting a stage. I got 4 shots off and then it just went out. I hit it with my hand a few times and it came back on. Then it will going off and on with every shot. I replaced the battery and the rest of the match was fine. When I pulled the battery, the only thing I saw was a spot in the middle of the battery that had been "worn down" from where it was touching the contact on the bottom of the compartment. I am happy with it for sure, but I just want others to know to replace the battery more often than i did.
  8. Deltapoint Pro Dot Failures

    I had my battery go out on me at the last match of the year. It looks like there is a "scraping" effect going on at one of the terminals. I have only Changed the battery 2 times this season, so I guess that I should pay more attention. It has been a great optic so far, and I can't complain about a few batteries. I would still recommend it.
  9. Anyone go back to a C-More from a mini?

    I bought a Slideride and the dot was not even close to round and way off center with the glass. I have to send it back and I just got it. Anyone else have that issue and need to send it back? It looks to me like the coating on the diode is just scratched off for the size dot that you requested. And it looked like it was scratched off out of round and off to one side pretty significantly. I compared the dot size to my DPP and it seemed to be exactly the same size. Confusing to say the least. Super disappointed
  10. Anyone go back to a C-More from a mini?

    That is the response that I was thinking about when I originally posted this. I feel like I am experiencing the same issue you are. When I dry fire I seem to get the dot with no issues. But when I am at a match, odd shooting positions and strong hand weak hand give me all kinds of trouble. What is the "drift" you are referring to? Like I said I am new to Open so I don't know all the ins and outs yet. Thanks for this post.
  11. Anyone go back to a C-More from a mini?

    I think the DPP is a great sight, but the second that I picked up a Slideride I really noticed the size of the glass and how crisp the dot was. I am thinking I will pick one up and see how it goes. Any suggestions on a mount?
  12. This is my first open gun and it came with a DDP. I was looking at another open gun on a vendor table this weekend and it had the original C-More on it. I really liked the bigger dot and the larger glass. Has anyone else switched back after shooting something like the DPP?
  13. Problems with .38 super in MBX mags

    I had the same issue. Switched to comp and it was good to go.i still have a bunch of super brass I would like to shoot up. I wish they would figure this out Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  14. Comp For New Build

    Thanks for the ideas. I don't know if it matters, but i am going to go 38 Super Comp and I am loading AA#7 with a 24grn Precision Delta pill. I was also planning on some popel holes as well. ( I just like how loud it is ) Does that change any of the suggestions?
  15. Firing Pin Stop question

    Awesome! That is the exact question that I had! Thank you so much.
