  1. Private registration opens March 1st and open registration March 8th for AZ PCC match.
  2. Yes, if you smack them hard they want to come out. Should clarify the back plastic piece for retention comes out with mag.
  3. Yes it obviously fired out of battery but I would say the main cause was the bullet setback on a stepped case. It might not of blown out of it wasn’t a stepped case. Don’t know what press the ammo was reloaded on but my 1050 gets stuck on stepped brass and won’t resize cases. Wonder if press could have had similar issue on sizing/depriming and didn’t fully resize and that’s possibly why round wouldn’t chamber all the way if you don’t case gauge ammo.
  4. Bullet setback on a stepped case causing higher pressure, not oob.
  5. I tried WST with moly 135s, was around 3.7-3.8gr out of a 16” barrel.
  6. Online magazine can be found here https://uspsa.org/magazine/view//2019-09#page=64
  7. Average low in Feb is 48°F with average high of 72°. So it’s freezing for you Hawaiian guys.
  8. As soon as you discover a problem and you know the steel wasn’t up or I have seen were a bigger pops falls and hits ground and causes nearby popper to fall, stop shooter. I wouldn’t want to waste ammo and I wouldn’t want to give shooter a practice run on rest of stage either.
  9. Parallax has the been the culprit for me at longer ranges with red dots.
  10. I shoot production with a Glock g34 and love the challenge of trying to keep up with other divisions that don’t have to reload. The division has a low barrier to entry, I shot with uncle mike mag pouches in the beginning and a bladetech Kydex holster. Most of the stages have turned into shoot 8, reload, shoot 8, shoot 8 reload, etc anyway. Keeping it to a 10 round division makes it the most inclusive to gun and caliber option, and other sport crossover like idpa or steel challenge. Switching it to 15 rounds is just a couple of rounds away from it being Limited minor. Having to do one less relo
  11. Check out the CMORE C3 rifle scope good 1-6, I like the reticle and check Todd Jarrett Instagram, there is a discount code there to get scope for $799
  12. So much for the bringing a rifle to a pistol match argument.
  13. Limited goes back almost 30 years, as far as I can tell they have Limited National champ going back to 1992.
  14. Having to do reloads is not what keeps new people from coming out and shooting matches. It’s the perception that you have to have some high dollar tricked out gun to compete or be competitive. The 10 round limit made it equitable across all states and didn’t exclude guns that have 12, 13 or 15 round mag capacities. If you shoot production 15 as Limited minor, then just look at the results for those people if that’s what you want to compare yourself too. I’ve seen plenty of shooters shoot Limited minor and beat others shooting major.
  15. Where do you think IPSC got the idea from? It started in USPSA first as a Practical/Tactical division that tried to get the gun manufacturers involved with sponsorship , they changed the name to production to not have the custom built guns that were in open and limited at the time. Sold it to the masses as come and shoot in this division we’re your duty/polymer frame gun isn’t at a disadvantage, only basic internal modifications can be made, it should look stock from the outside. Then after years of being asked, can I do this to my gun? Can I add this to my gun? NROI has thrown their hands up
  16. I have shot in every division except L10 and Revo, I don’t care what division people shoot or why they do it. I just don’t get the mentality, hey would should make the round capacity higher with these production division pistols when the same thing can already be accomplished shooting Limited. Nobody says you have to put base pads and run 140mags, that’s just the max. You want to shoot 15 round production to practice for IPSC, cool, sign up Limited, shoot minor and load your mags up to 15. Why does everybody else have to change?
  17. The old adage “it’s the Indian, not the arrow” holds no matter what division you shoot in. You might jump up a few places running a dot locally but not going to make a difference if you go to bigger matches.
  18. Besides glass, isn’t the mounting different? Different footprint?
  19. You can pretty much do whatever you want to gun so the 10 round restriction is the only difference between limited minor without basepad or 140mm mags. Is 5 rounds going to be a game changer to division?
  20. What’s left to do to the gun besides adding optics and a comp?
  21. Start around 6-8 quarters and test it for your grip and whatever load your shooting.
  22. Most of the guys I know short stroking can’t lock back in the bolt catch so not a problem. My lower doesn’t even have a bolt catch. YMMV
  23. That would been an awesome achievement, I don’t know if it’s every been done? I think maybe Max Michel did it, don’t know of any others.
