  1. Welding on a full length dust cover

    I was oddly considering the same thing recently. I didn't get past pondering it though. Also my Caspians have their serial number on the bottom of the dust cover so that may be a issue as well Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G935A using Tapatalk
  2. How short can I load 9 major?

    The shortest I have made major with was 1.085 with a MG 125gr 357sig hollow point. I loaded up to 166pf with A.C. not the best load by far bit I had a bunch on hand Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G935A using Tapatalk
  3. .40 or .45 Single stack?

    Oddly I tend to shoot .14 splits with a 45 on hoser targets and the same .14 splits with a 9mm on the same targets, also oddly it doesn't really matter if its a 1911 or a GLOCK, Single stack or open gun, I think that's how fast my finger can go. Yes each and every one of those guns feels different but that doesn't matter.

  5. Magazine round count critical?

    I'll call BS on this. I've watched guys win major matches with nothing but 140s also seen it done with a glock in 40. Better shooters will win pretty much every time. On a total hoser stage with little movement being able to not reload at all would be a nice advantage but, luckily they are few and far between. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G935A using Tapatalk
  6. setting up local match

    Google uspsa stages and click on the images tab. you will see many stages you can use there. I design stages for my club in Sketchup, there are many props available to download and its free. then I stick it into a word document that looks like the classifier stage diagram page
  7. Indoor Chrono Use

    Yes, and it worked surprisingly well, there was not enough light left to use the sun so I tried this on a whim and bingo nice consistent readings
  8. Magazine extension 101

    It all depends on the game and division you are shooting. for USPSA Limited and Open you really want to have all the rounds you can fit to be as competitive as possible, for Production many run slightly extended pads to make seating magazines slightly easier, in Single Stack extended pads are often necessary depending on the mag well to aid in seating magazines.
  9. Canting Mag Pouches Legal in Production?

    Yes, you can point them any way you want, there are only limitations on where they can be on your body ( behind a line drawn through the point of both hip bones), and how far they can be from the inside of the inner belt (2" to the magazine). You can put them in any orientation you like inside those limitations, right side up, up side down, forwards, backwards, whatever you like.
  10. the Safariland should fit, I have an older 012, that fits my Tanfoglios round and square, round 1911s and square Caspian trigger guards.
  11. Anyone Using Small Frame Witness?

    some older ones have cz main springs, newer ones are just like the large frame guns inside with the short transverse main spring. Yes they will take cz mags, Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G935A using Tapatalk
  12. Remove Holes

    To install a cone you would have to turn the barrel down to standard diameter and thread it. I imagine that would be getting pretty close to the cost of a new barrel. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G935A using Tapatalk
  13. Selling/Trading this for that....

    Shooting SS Minor VS shooting Production with your shadow. There are no differences in stage planning and execution. The only real differences are no DA first shot, my assumption is that's a non issue for you, and SS mags are harder to seat properly with a big mag well, also reasonably easy to make a non issue. don't take that to mean you shouldn't have a SS minor gun, they are a ton of fun, and thats what this game is about for me.
  14. Czechmate question

    When I shoot a dot gun I never see the lens, I just see a dot and the targets, the gun and the sight are just blurry things in the fore ground. The point behind wanting a flat shooting load is to get the dot back to the spot on the target you want to hit as quickly as possible, it doesn't matter where in the window it is it just needs to be back to the center of the target. A dot its 100% target focused shooting. The hard part is getting your index to where the dot is always visible when you point the gun at the target.
  15. Czechmate question

    If your looking at where the dot is in the lens your looking in the wrong place. Look at the target not the sight, it's a weird change going from irons for some people. Just remember the dots position in the lens doesn't matter (within the accuracy requirements of USPSA 50 bianchi can make a difference) Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G935A using Tapatalk
