    My .44's
  2. Looking for a new red dot for my AR and have narrowed my choice to a trijicon MRO or an Aimpoint Pro. What are your thoughts? price point between the two is not significant

    Build my custom 2011....

    Unless money is no object I would look at a CRP pistol from Dawson or look at an STI from Brazos. Either one will take to you the top level if you are capable. https://dawsonprecision.com/sti-2011-edge-40-s-w-competition-ready-pistol-hard-chrome-finish/ http://www.brazoscustom.com/Home.htm

    .40 or .45 Single stack?

    I have 45's, 40's and a 9mm, the only pistols that will eject a partial mag reliably are my 45's. I have heard it said by several well known gun guys that you give up reliability if you have anything other than a 5" gun in 45acp. My guns run and are very accurate but occasionally I need to eject a partial mag and usually have to pull it out by hand. I think the issue stems from the cartridges easing forward in the magazine and hanging on the feed ramp. This is the main reason I prefer 45's. Would be interested to know if anyone else experiences the same the thing a recommendation for a cure

    Custom Single Stack

    A Baer premier II is a pretty good buy. The only thing I don't like is the 30LPI frontstrap checkering. But add a magwell and it would be good to go

    STI Edge Factory or Tuned??

    I bought a brand new edge in 2000. Had feeding issues, I took it to a local guy and he lowered the barrel into the frame and that gun ran with anything I put in it. I also had other work done to it. Blended the beavertail better, serrated the rear of the slide at 40 LPI, new hammer and the trigger lightened up, STI magwell and a hard chrome job. That gun shot way better than I could. I'm sure it was capable of a national championship if I could do my part. Sold it about 2 years ago and bought a basically new ground up build on an SV frame from a friend. The guy I sold it too has had 0 issues with it. STI makes great guns and their customer service is also great.

    Footwork drills? Whatcha got?

    We made 3 shooting boxes and set them up in a triangular array such as 2 at 7 yards 10 yards apart then 1 at 10 yards between the 2. We would set 1 target basically in front of the 10 yard Box at the beep 2 shots from each box. You can vary the start box, the direction you go etc. I don't know if it helped us but it certainly didn't hurt us. We focused on getting out of a box and being ready to shoot as soon as possible upon entry into the next box. Of course your shots had to be there also.

    Winchester SX3

    Received a package in the mail yesterday, curious because I hadn't ordered anything. Opened the box and Winchester had sent me a brand new butt stock. They told me they would put me on a waiting list in April and they delivered. Great customer service from Winchester new fore end was already installed so I have a like new shotgun that is no longer sticky.

    The picture thread for rimfire rifles!

    That's a rimfire? that's a rifle?
  14. Every Sig Max I have seen, which hasn't been that many, the rear sight is elevated to a high position leaving an unsightly gap below it. external extractor too, solution to a non problem in my opinion. I have a Springfield ROOP great pistol and a Springfield Govt model that I bought in 1991 that has been completely worked over. It looks like a TGO 1, but mine was built before that model came out. both have been fine pistols and trouble free.
