  1. It's a great system. I've got 2 different height bases and the top plates for 4 different presses and a vice. I don't even bother looking at anyone else's offerings, because these are so well made.
  2. Most Louisiana club matches (all flavors) are on hold until further notice (at least mid April).
  3. Like Mo said...show me an average SO or CSO that would be able to determine the differences between a 10x bushing and a regular bushing on inspection, much less know that it's not a regular replacement part. Sometimes, when you ask too many questions, you get extra unenforceable rules as a result. Just look at the offshore oil & gas industry offshore as an example.
  4. Honestly, watch Gunbroker. I got mine on there for $875. Most of the time you see them fro $1200-1400, but every once in a while a no reserve, penny auction starts up on one.
  5. Those are the only 2 big complaints I had about my 1911 Max in 40. The series 80 and the slide profile/holster issue. I actually used a Glock 34 holster tightened up as tight as possible while waiting on my Red Hill Tactical holster to be made/delivered. Surprisingly, the Glock holster actually works well. I use it in both IDPA and USPSA, so the series 80 stuff has to stay. The only other things (and they're purely personal preference) is that I prefer larger safeties, especially is shielded, and the trigger is too short for me. So, I'll probably upgrade to a medium or long flat tr
  6. You have to call them to get the correct one. DW changed the style a couple of times, so the only way to tell which works for which gun is by year/SN.
  7. No, statements with no explanation make zero sense. If you have a differing viewpoint, then explain it.
  8. I've also got the Atlas ones, plus big hands here (XXL gloves), and they are nice & very comfortable for me.
  9. Some sand paper and an EGW mag gauge. We had a few club members not make the gauge, then after a few sessions of sanding, they fit just fine.
  10. I've got a RIA I'm playing around in Limited with this year. Gen 1 STI mags fit perfect, no need to change mag catch or anything. The Remington 18rnd mags work well too. You can find Rem mags for about $30-35 and Gen 1 STIs for $40
  11. we had a saying that sort of covered this in the Navy...choose your rate, choose your fate. If you choose to shoot with a 26oz gun, then that was your choice and you live with the consequences (good or bad) of that choice. If you choose to shoot with a 43oz gun, then that was your choice and you live with the consequences (good or bad) of that choice. Don't cry because someone chose a different gun that was heavier to aid with recoil control, they may be crying that you have a lighter gun that transitions faster between targets.
  12. swap down to the 14# spring and you should be good. I played in Prod for a while with 5.25 in 40 and shoot one in IDPA ESP, using about 140pf ammo (I just swap out 155gr bullets instead of 180s on my regular major load). I run 14# springs and haven't had any issues, not even when I did powderpuff 180gr minor loads like you're describing. The only time I did have issues running the 14# spring was when testing out some 140gr bullets (again same load as the 180gr major loads, just swap bullets) and they were around 115-120pf.

    10mm CZ custom

    Most conversion kits are a complete top end and at least 1 magazine. There may be a different follower, but some people have run 10mm in a 45ACP mag. The 97 is a 45 platform, so a new slide is a must for the proper breech face, as is a barrel (from scratch or existing undrilled blanks, because there is no other caliber for this platform). That's where the majority of the price is coming from in the kit.

    10mm CZ custom

    Announced pricing was $500 & change for a conversion, around $2300 for complete gun, and $3000 for the package that was shown off online and at Shot.
  15. When our club first started, I think we may have had one certified RO. I'd attended the class like 11yrs previous, but had been away from the sport for nearly 10yrs. Now, a large portion of our regular members are ROs and I'm a CRO. As long as you're keeping everyone safe and keeping to the rules, you're good...besides, you had a certified RO helping keep tabs on everything, so you were actually "in training."
