  1. The "Lookup by Name" function on the website was restored this morning, so they are moving right through the list. Near as I can figure the match filled sometime around noon on the 1st.
  2. OK--went and did a little measuring. Set a c-more on top of a G17 slide. With it set so both mount screws had something to screw into, it hung over the rear of the ejection port about 3/16" and had 1.6" hanging off the rear of the slide. Could be done---not sure why anybody would want to.
  3. Popple Hole Addition

    What powder? Looking at the intermittent fireballs-----3N38?
  4. Interesting. WSF has a reputation of being REVERSE temperature sensitive----faster at lower temperatures. My own experience seems to bear that out, a 172 PF open load at 45° went 165.1 PF at Area 2 where the temperature was 85°.
  5. Timer Pick Up problem with PCC's

    2 or three 3/16" popple holes just forward of the barrel nut should do it.
  6. *thumb rest [generic]* options

    I've got relatively short thumbs. Tried the go-gun, worked but didn't feel right. Went to Nitro Fin. Better, but it was a little flatter than I wanted. Ended up with Phoenix Trinity slide stop rest. A bit more vertical. I run a little patch of grip tape on it.
  7. But the rules do not appear to be the same. At least not the rules on USPSA>Steel Challenge> Rules A.3 Center Fire Pistol: Any pistol firing (9mm/.38 Special) or larger ammunition (see “ammunition” rule 4.1.1). This event has multiple equipment divisions as follows. A.3.1 Open: This is the race division! All legal firearms are allowed. Optics, Compensators, and any safe holster/position are specifically allowed. I'm not seeing anything in the SCSA rules that would not allow braced AR9 pistol.
  8. It's a 9mm centerfire pistol. Why would you have to take the brace off to shoot SCSA Open division? Cite the rule. Holster would get interesting--
  9. Unload and show clear dq

    Well--maybe. Could be a DQ. 10.4.3 A shot which occurs while loading, reloading or unloading a handgun.
  10. Shipping reloaded ammo.

    Mail= USPS? U.S. Postal Service (USPS): Shipping of Ammunition is ProhibitedAmmunition (Cartridges, small arms) is a nonmailable hazardous material. "Under no circumstances may any nonmailable hazardous material, restricted matter, or perishable matter be deposited for mailing."Publication 52 - Hazardous, Restricted and Perishable MailCartridges, small arms - Appendix A - Hazardous Materials
  11. Shipping reloaded ammo.

    You can not mail ammunition. You CAN mail cases and bullets, just no loaded ammo. If you have primers and powder, it gets really difficult and expensive. You can ship loaded ammo by common carrier. Must be labeled ORMD, pretty sure it must be shipped from a hub. Not bad as far as expense--it doesn't have to go overnight or anything. How much ammo are we talking about? Might even be cheaper to palletize it and ship truck?
  12. I've had good luck with Loctite 603.
  13. CZ75 SP01 140mm mag basepads--which one?

    Interesting. Didn't see a +pad for the 18 rd factory mag on the Springer site, just + pads for the 17 rd Mec-Gar. I emailed Springer about it.
  14. Currently running CZ factory SP01 18 rd tubes, stock follower, Wolff +10% springs and Springer +0 pads. Would like to bump up the capacity on a couple of them for Carry Optic. There are a PILE of basepads out there---what's the current basepad wisdom for max capacity at a legal length? Springs? Followers?
  15. Magazine guide/brake on Shadow

    ^^^^^^ That^^^^^^. Really creative way to zero a stage and provide some entertainment for the rest of the squad. Especially if you try to hammer a mag in and pry it out TWICE on the clock before you figure out there is a problem. (slow learner). CZC shows different part numbers for Shadow and SP-01.
