  1. I'm sure this is a cool pistol design, but y'all need to get on the same sheet of music. There are like 4+ threads going about this same pistol.......
  2. Just be ready to be frustrated with the primer feeding until you get everything set up perfectly.
  3. The STI Stacatto retails for 1999.
  4. I attempted to save some more pennies a round by buying from RMR. But their website wouldn't work for either of my cards. Kept getting strange error messages even when I called them. I'll stick with Roze until I can't get them. When and if that happens, I may try MG. But I didn't see a 147 grain JHP on their site.
  5. New? Not hardly. While I'm no longer (not currently) a high volume shooter, I haven't had an issues getting 147 grain JHPs since I started loading 9mm a couple years ago. Prior to that I got 180 grain 40S&W projectiles from Roze or Danny at AAA. But y'all stay miffed at them, so I can buy my measly 1K a month from them. LOL
  6. There weren't any restrictions. You just had to be laying on the ground. I've only had to shoot prone in a match 2-3 times in the last 10 years, which is why I haven't taken the time to see what works for me. I need to change that.
  7. I've been very happy with the KKM barrels in my CK and Cheely pistols. Thankfully, I've had pretty good luck getting ZERO bullets lately and since they are .02 cents cheaper than MG, I hope my luck continues.
  8. I only load 9mm myself. Loaded on a 650 w/o a BF for nearly 10 years. Upgraded to a 1050 a few weeks ago and couldn't be happier. Hope to get a BF for Christmas. I know the partial "up" stroke to seat a primer on the 650 doesn't seem like much, but once you no longer have to do it, it seems like half the work. The other thing that is saving me a lot of time, is that I (more or less) have to leave the powder hopper full now because it's not nearly as easy to empty as the 650 was. It worries me a little bit because my press is in the garage. But I'll get over it.
  9. No prescription glasses, I remember a part of Brian's book where he describes laying the arm out on the ground with your cheek on your arms. Whatever, couldn't make anything work!
  10. I need them. We had a prone stage at a recent IDPA State match. While I didn't do great, I didn't have any mikes either. I had to put together our qualifications and training for the west side of Company "B", and I decided to set up a drill that required going prone to hit a "C" zone steel target at about 40 yards. While I can easily destroy my co-workers on pistol shooting in the standing position, virtually all of them toasted me on the drill that required us to shoot the pistol prone. I tried another 3 mags of ammo, once we were done and I still couldn't find the sweet spot for my sights. I'd done this before and remember leaning to the side worked pretty well. Nothing worked for me today. I hope I never have to shoot from underneath a car, but just in case I do, I hope someone here has the magic potion answer to shooting prone with a pistol. (iron sights)
  11. It's an amazing product and how can one argue that the lubricant staying where you put it, is a bad thing. I only shoot 9mm minor now, so I use Slide Glide Lite year round. But when it gets really cold, I use the tub blended with Weapon Shield.
  12. I add Weaponshield to the slide glide for cold weather shooting.
  13. Most of my experience comes from SV. The prefer internal slide lightening and sight tracker cut because they believe lightening cuts/holes weaken the slide.
  14. Agreed. I've got a 10.5" A-6 thats been perfect. I was pretty disappointed. But the LANTAC pistol will work better on body armor anyway.....
