  1. I went with the TTI kit for my Gen4 G34.  I was pretty satisfied with how it felt, but I had 3 light strikes at a match last night, with CCI primers.  I ordered a Lighting Strike Titanium striker to see if the issue goes away.  I also ordered Vogel's trigger as a back up.......

    I have both DAA and shooters connection competition belts. The shooters connection belt is thinner/less bulky compared to the DAA competition belt.

    I just bought IDPA and USPSA belts from Shooters Connection.  Very high quality at a great price.  It was a chore to get my RHT mag pouches to lock in place though.

  3. Or take the brass tip from a 650 primer magazine and never have that problem again.  When you tighten the knurled knob at the top, get it barely finger tight, don't bare down on it.  And make sure the half round primer slide stop is tight and properly oriented.  Unfortunately, I've had lots of practice messing with that part of my 1050, but I feel like I know what I'm doing now.

     I was amazed reading those reports as well.  Watching video of various round comparisons where the pistol round always seem to penetrate more than the rifle rounds tested.  As you said, "As counter intuitive as it sounds."

     

    @ltdmstr brought up a good point about shooting inside of any house or small room.  During a home invasion you will have zero hearing protection, for this reason I will be looking into building a suppressed 300 Blackout SBR for a home defense gun.  

    I totally get why you might consider how loud the gun may be inside the residence, but as a good friend and retired DELTA guy told me, sometimes you want the bad guys to know they are being shot at.

    Vmax. All my experience with Vmax bullets says you'll be disappointed if you need to use it against an armored target though. It's a varmint bullet made to explode almost immediately on contact, so it's hell on soft tissue but nothing else.

    I just double checked, it's GMX.  I wouldn't expect it to defeat Level III, but any of the soft armor would likely be perforated.
