  1. CZ Shadow and 147 grain suggestions

    I haven't settled on 3.5 but I do like the 147s. I will drop down to 3.2 and try that. I do want to be a little above minor PF and that load sounds like its working for many of you. Thanks.
  2. CZ shadow 2: notable issues, or concerns.

    I've only got 2k rounds through mine so far but like it so much I bought a 2nd one. I replaced the grips with LOK palmswell and like them a lot. I need to put a little loctite on the grip screws as they loosen every session. I also put lighter hammer and recoil springs from Cajun in mine and an extended firing pin. I really like the S2 and it's VERY accurate. It's not hard to empty the mag and have one large hole in the target. I've shot various weights but have settled on the 147s. Recoil is very light and follow up shots are fast. Awesome trigger with short reset...especially if you're coming from Glocks. The only issue I've had is the front sight fiber optic rod fell out while shooting today.
  3. Shadow 2 sights

    The front sight fiber optic rod launched itself into the ether today while shooting my S2. What is the recommended replacement? Who is trying a different front sight setup? Also, my rear sight should either be drifted a bit (shoots slightly right) or replaced. I see that CZ Custom has an adjustable rear. Anyone here liking that one?
  4. CZ Shadow and 147 grain suggestions

    I've been shooting 3.5 of TG with 1.058”. Shoots clean, flat and accurate with 147 gr blue bullets in my Shadow 2. I do need to chrono as I could probably go a bit lighter and make PF.
  5. Any love for Guga Ribas gear?

    I just adjusted everything tonight for my 2011. I look forward to spending time with it. I'm really liking it so far. There are an amazing range of adjustments.
  6. Need a new Netflix addiction...

    I wish I had my time back from trying for several seasons to get into that. It's like a black hole that keeps getting worse but you keep thinking it has to improve. Terrible. Deadwood was super crude but the acting was riveting. Justified is interesting. Sherlock on BBC is fantastic...every episode was great and Andrew Scott is freaky evil. Longmire is very good but the last season was getting stale...Jacob Nighthorse is an interesting character. Blacklist is very good but again, the last season's writing wasn't great. The first few seasons are amazing. James Spader is really a great actor. Prison Break is superb and Robert Knepper will freak you out. Peaky Blinders is great too...and Tom Hardy as the bad guy is wicked. You have to have a great counterpart to the good guy for tension's sake.
  7. Peaky Blinders

    It's great. As mentioned, Tom Hardy is fantastic...he's just an amazing bad guy in all of those roles he takes on...he reminds me of Daniel Day-Lewis in his villain roles...but there's lots of good acting in this series. I'm curious to see where it goes in season 4.
  8. Want to start reloading soon!

    If I had only 1 press or would recommend just 1 press it would be the 650. I really like the combo of my 550 and 1050 plus the RCBS turret press and Rockchucker. The only thing I would change would be to add a Mark 7 auto drive to the 1050 in the future.
  9. Any love for Guga Ribas gear?

    Thanks for the replies. The adjustability, being able to use for multiple guns, and being able to easily remove the gear without losing positioning on the belt are all pluses for me. It's also cheaper than having multiple traditional rigs.
  10. I ordered a holster/belt/mag pouch combo to use with both a Limited and Open setup. I liked the written and video reviews I was seeing. Any love for GR gear?
  11. Someone stepped up to help

    That's fantastic. Really excellent to hear.
  12. I resisted as long as I could and bought it myself. Pick it up tomorrow.
  13. New Member writes expository prose

    Welcome to the forums. It's always nice to see another sporting clays shooter join here. What shotgun(s) do you use? I had a DT 10 and Blaser F3 but didn't shoot them better than my Browning 725 SC, so I sold the others and bought more pistols!
  14. 9mm major spreadsheet

    Thanks for the clarity and posting it. It's nice to have for comparison's sake. I know I'm going to try 115 and 125 blue bullets with WAC in the 7.0 range.
  15. 9mm major spreadsheet

    Nothing specific and I know what I'm going to start with. In some online searches, I kept seeing references to a big spreadsheet on these forums where someone had worked up a lot of 9mm major data. The spreadsheet above has a lot of info but no WAC. Seemed a little odd as it's one of the commonly used powders.
