Finally read the FAQs

Finally read the FAQs (3/11)

  1. Anyone see the Glock 44 used for this? Think the Ruger is a better choice?
  2. Would like to start bring my 10 year old to matches... Put this in the Ruger forum because I am currently thinking this: Any other recommendations? Doesn't have to be ruger. Does have to be rimfire, and hopefully $3-500 price point. Holster, support equipment availability would be nice... Anyone know of mag pouch and holsters for the ruger? This pick was mainly because I debated buying this anyway and getting a suppressor...
  3. We could avoid all the flashlight nonsense and just allow night vision goggles. I am sure there are a ton of special operations folks just dying to shoot USPSA but they won't without being able to use their night vision gear...
  4. I posted this is another discussion on the same subject: "Welcome to the 2022 Surefire Production Nationals with 6 low light stages..."
  5. If the "thumbrest" happens to activate the LED I don't know why it couldn't be bolted on.
  6. I did the life and don't regret it. Not sure if the fee structure has changed but at the time it $40/yr and $500 for the life. They had some kind of installment plan and I think I paid $125/year for 4 years. I don't have to deal with remembering to renew and I think I did it young enough that I will save money in the end. Dues could also increase, and I am done paying them forever. I have some lifetime hunting licenses too. I figure as I get older eventually my income will do down and I'll be happy to not pay all kinds of fees every year. It's actually kept me from shooting IDPA because the thought of dealing with dues when I have USPSA all paid for bugs me.
  7. I figured it out. It was really just a newbie issue. On assembly Dillon did not tighten up the mechanism that moves the primer slide and it slid up the primer magazine tube. Not sure why the ratchet stopped working, but I disabled it to trouble shoot. I'd like to actually use it...
  8. New to the 1050, loaded a few hundred rounds. Think something jammed up in the priming and like an idiot forced the handle up...Now, emptied the primer tube and all the cases out of the feeder. Can pull the handle down, will feed a case. If I hold the tab down that unlocks the ratcheting I can pull the handle up and down no problem and the shell plate advances. The slide that feeds the primers isn't moving though.
  9. I would not be surprised if STI could tell USPSA what should be legal in SS, especially if they are sponsoring SS nationals now. I guess once people start making aftermarket steel grips to replace STI's plastic grips we'll have come full circle anyway...
  10. STI has produced single stack grip modules in the past and these guns were not deemed legal for single stack division in USPSA. I guess it depends how you define "basis in the original 1911". Maybe they have something cooking with USPSA. " Only 1911 production type pistols. Must be available to the general public and have their basis in the original 1911 service pistol as designed by John M. Browning. Pistols made from components that duplicate the factory originals are acceptable. Frames must be metal.
  11. Thanks! Was wondering why they even bothered with a different press...
  12. Does it matter for loading longish 40 cal?
  13. I did, it was surface A in the diagram. If you compare your aftermarket sear to the stock one you may get a feel for what surfaces are the most different.
