  2. Gotcha, Any chance you could post a picture from the rear looking forward and maybe a top looking diagonal at front sight. Just trying to get an idea of size. When it’s listed as .100 is that the black metal width of the front post or the actual fiber optic rod diameter? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. While I haven't worn them in a match yet, I've been running in a set of Altra Lone Peak 4s lately and can't find anything bad to say about them - they feel like they'd do well on gravel, concrete, and fault lines, and wearing them all day wouldn't be an issue at all. Incredibly comfortable, with an aggressive, yet grippy tread(can't report firsthand on longevity at this point), wide toe-box, and zero drop. I can't directly compare them to Salomons personally, but reviews(mostly on trailrunning sites) indicate that the Salomons have a more aggressive tread pattern, taller heel, and narrower fit.
  4. I am about to say screw it and never load 9mm again. Here is the deal and photos lets see what we can figure out. I am currently loading 147 gr Ibjehead coated bullets (but have loaded extreme plated, rainier plated, BBI, and Bayou Coated) all have had some of the same issue. With the coated, I scrape the coating off, and with the plated I "ripple" the coating to the essential same effect, leaving muffin top on the case where it meets the bullet. This is all once fired indoor range brass sorted to keep out the weird internal stepped cases. Loading Process on a 650: Size and decap using Dillion Carbide Dies, Turned 1/4 turn past touching the plate to get a little cam over effect and try and decrease the "glock bulge" Prime and drop powder using dillon powder die. (I have used extreme bell, no bell, and the perfectly measured 3/thou bell on the case and it does the same on each type of belling) Seat using a dillon 9mm Seating die (Again, tried seating deep, and shallow, but typically at the 1.10 length to shoot in my glocks, and PCC) Lee Factory Crimp die. (Set to extreme crimp, proper crimp, and no crimp) makes no difference. Now as I load, I will get a full 25-30% muffin top on all rounds. This is simply unacceptable. At first I thought it was a bell issue, and therefore adjusted that, then thought it may be a seating issue, and then finally a crimp issue. I have adjusted all items independent of the any other changes and still get about the same result. Then I thought I might be "undersizing" the brass, and thus "shoving" the bullet into an area that is too narrow. I remembered having a lee undersized die, and thought that was my problem, but when I checked the dies, I have the dillon, and must have the lee in the box somewhere. Any Ideas? Please help before the 9mm toolhead takes a dive off the end of the boat!!!
  5. You're welcome. Just to give you an idea about how it will look with the plate, these both have the Razor red dots and Red Hill Tactical holsters. Enjoy the new blaster!
  6. But..but...tapping bulbs could get you 1 switch, how about the other 2?
  7. Today
  8. Ha, truthfully, I did too when I saw it a month ago. #4 is irrelevant, so #2 has to wait on #1. If #1 can't answer, then #1 see's a white and black hat, So #2 calls out white. But if #1 saw 2 black hats, he could call out White, since he see's both hats, but the colors he see's are different, so he is not sure.
  9. Very cool puzzle. I gave up and had to look at the answer.
  10. Turn one on and come back in 50,000 hours after it has burned out.
  11. I'm getting very confusing info regarding recoil springs for the original M&P40 4.25" and a M&P40 2.0 5". I've been asking around and searching, everyone says these guns use the same springs and I can't find anything saying it's a 2.0 spring. Most people are even saying they use the same guide rod. However, when I compare my own guns the 5" 2.0 has a longer guide rod than the original 4.25". Also, there was about 32 coils on the original and around 42 on the 2.0. I emailed S&W and got a quick replay saying "different part number, they're different". You guys seem to have much more direct experience here. Are we sure it's the same ISMI recoil spring for both guns despite the differences I'm seeing?
  12. I've come very close to buying the Mantisx used a couple of times but I never pull the trigger. Two reasons. One... what you just said. Two... the fact that I see them being sold as "only used a couple of times" confirms reason one. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  13. A farmer has 12 chickens, all but 8 died, how many survived? Answer highlighted below. 8
  14. 13lb ISMI works best
  15. 4 criminals are caught and are to be punished. The Judge allows them to be freed if they can solve a puzzle. If they do not, they will be hung. They agreed. The 4 criminals are lined up on some steps (shown in picture attached). They are all facing in the same direction. A wall separates the fourth man from the other three. So to summarize:- Man 1 can see men 2 and 3. Man 2 can see man 3. Man 3 can see none of the others. Man 4 can see none of the others. The criminals are wearing hats. They are told that there are two white hats and two black hats. The men initially don't know what color hat they are wearing. They are told to shout out the color of the hat that they are wearing as soon as they know for certain what color it is. They are not allowed to turn round or move. They are not allowed to talk to each other. They are not allowed to take their hats off. Who is the first person to shout out and why? Answer in white, highlight for results: Man 3 and man 4 can’t see anyone.Man 1 can see a white and a black hat so he knows that he has two possibilities: he either has a white or a black hat.Man 2 can see that man 3 has a black hat. And he knows that it would be obvious to man 1 that he is wearing a white hat if he had a black hat. In that case, man 1 would have already shouted. Man 2 concluded that he is wearing a white hat because there were no other options.
  16. Anyone knows if such mount is available? I figure that when SRO showed up, I'd prefer not to mill the slide until I knew it was durable enough.
  17. Look at the frame of the bull shadow and compare it to the shadow 2. The dust cover on the bull shadow is way shorter than the shadow 2. That alone reduced the weight of the bull shadow substantially.
  18. Run a Glock 17 in Open.. The 34 or 35 crack slides..
  19. I'll try to make it short: Level 2 match, shooter A finishes the stage, score keeper records all the hits and time, RO and shooter approve of the score. shooter B in the same division shoots not a clean run but not a disaster, his time is 2.25x of shooter A. Calls B.S. on his time after knowing what shooter A's time was. RO goes through the timer and has all the hits recorded. They go back and look at shooter A's time compared to the 50% of competitors that have shot the stage, and shooter A's time is twice as fast as the top GMs at the match. It is concluded that the shot timer did not pick up several of his shots and Shooter A is made to reshoot. Later, review of video shows that shooter A indeed shot the stage in about twice the recorded time, regardless, video is irrelevant for contesting a score. There were no rules given for the mandatory reshoot. I was under the impression that after a score is considered conclusive after affirmation by both the competitor and RO in an uncontested manner, the score is definitive per 9.7.4. Maybe there is some interpretation between 9.7.4, 9.10.1, and 9.10.2 to justify a mandatory reshoot but I would have thought arbitration by shooter B would have been necessary to initiate a review after the score was deemed definitive, forcing a review by the arbitration board where they may or may not have decided the time was unrealistic. Ultimately this is a case of bad ROing. The RO's should have realized after ROing the same stage all day that the time was suspect and should have checked for shots, but they didn't. What would the rules / proper procedure been in this case to justify a reshoot?
  20. 75 Bull Shadow with dot and 140 mags is only like 43-44 ounces
  21. Please don't take this the wrong way, but how does your gun with both a bull barrel and brass grips make CO weight?IIRC, the S2 with a red dot necessitates weight reduction in at least a couple areas. What am I missing? Is the CZC gun much lighter than the S2?
  22. Peaked? No. Slowed. Yes. The real reason we blow so much gas is because of one reason only. Major scoring. If it wasn't for major scoring I'd be shooting 130 pf. So we don't shoot major because it shoots better, we shoot major because it scores higher. And thus we've figured out how to make the gun better while enjoying major scoring.
  23. In 7 years of hard use never had any of my mags need tuning, #30,000 + rounds on two mags.
  24. Brian's Slide Glide has worked for me for years.
