Thank you Zack. I hope the writing gets some attention and love Troys #1 rule. Are ya startin to get the picture? You copy and pasted it yourself, however did not read it. After 3 strings from one box in Showdown, that box is no longer a proper starting position. So, not quite so “obvious” unless you are imposing your personal “take” on things using only what parts you want to hear, and no one has time for that. Sorry to sound like a dick, but I get so tired of people adding their personal opinions, or “takes” to the rules and causing confusion and conflict. ‘“THEY ARE IN THE CORRECT START POSITION, JUST THE WRONG BOX.” In what world does this make sense?? If in the wrong box, they are not in the correct start position. Look, I know it’s currently a poorly written rule contradiction, and Zack explained it perfectly how it should be handled. No competitor in anything uspsa may be started by the RO in any type of stage without the competitor in the correct position. If it happens, that is the fault of the RO and it’s a reshoot. After shooting three times from one showdown box, that position is no longer a valid starting position. No more than you as an RO could start someone in the wrong box of Outer Limits and impose penalty. Assuring the proper start position is the ROs responsibility in every aspect of uspsa. Shooter starts with hands at sides for El Prez, that’s a reshoot and the ROs fault. Anything otherwise violates my new favorite rule.....”Don’t be a prick.”
The 80 year old 280 pound lady he saw right before you was probably chatting with him about this rash over here near her naughty parts and frequent bloody stools. I think he can handle dealing with a person who likes to shoot.
That slide and frame should not go together with those measurements. Taking off .010 from the bottom of the slide will reduce the space that linked barrel has to properly function. You will likely have to reduce the bed and push back the VIS to get proper clearance between the barrel hood and the slide when cycling. I would suggest going with the STI slide for the STI frame and save the Caspian for another build. Andy
For my MPX if it is a standard 32 round or less COF I have a 40 rounder in the gun and 2 spare 24 rounders on my belt.. depending on the COF I might change that to: 34 rounder and a 24 rounder on the belt Unloaded start mags on belt = 2 40's down loaded to 38 I have 8ea 40's 2 ea 34's and 2ea 24's use and reload as needed.. I like being able to not have to top off or clean a mag for the next stage

I didn't pick up a Glock anything for 2 whole years, shot CZ's exclusively. Picked a Glock up last month and ran the fastest time ever on a plate rack. I feel that once you master the Glock trigger you will always shoot them faster than anything else. I love my CZ's but i shoot the Glocks much faster.
I think this says it right here, you're going to have trouble beating guys that practice if you don't do the work yourself. Pushing harder probably isn't the answer, it'll lead to mistakes. Pushing harder and making mistakes in practice and learning from them will lead to real gains at matches and you'll see improvements in the standings. I know everyone is saying "shoot major" assuming were talking about local matches and not sectionals or Area's I wouldn't worry about not having a Major gun yet. Most likely the M's and G's aren't beating you as a B class shooter because they have major. It's probably costing you about 4-5% So if you're shooting 95-96% then it may be time to get Major. It will be a little harder to get your classification up, I'd try not to worry to much about that.
My usual loadout, unless it's something like a short qualifier, is 57rd MBX Mega in the gun, 33rd Glock or 41rd TF on the front of my belt as my backup/reload mag, and 2 or 3 22rd pistol mags with TTI extensions for my SHTF backups. With the 57rd mag I rarely have to reload, but I'm shooting the Rocky Mountain 300 in two weeks and every stage is a minimum of 60rds, so I've actually had to practice reloads.
I've also been using the peltor tep-100/200s with great results. They aren't as high quality as the custom stuff, but Peltor knows a thing or two about ear pro. Plenty comfortable and I like the charging case.
You’ve been working hard on getting better since November and your GM buddy still hasn’t called you out on running that slowly? There’s a solid 3 - 4 seconds to be carved off of this stage just by sprinting like you’re in a frantic hurry, and then arriving with the gun up.
I use a cube as well but don't use any straps or clips. The Polaroid cube has a magnetic base, simply buy a disc shaped rare earth magnet and put it under the hat brim and the Cube on top and away you go. Nice thing is you don't wreck your hat and the camera can be moved to another hat in 3 seconds.
