    Pain Management

    I blew a disc out in my back 7 years ago. I had injections in my spine, took dilaudids, gabapentin, etc. After a year, I could walk without a cane. Since then I started working on building up my core. Huge difference. I'm 67 now and all I need is a couple of Tylenol before a match and I'm good to go. Try doing some planks everyday(start slow) and see if that helps. Good luck...

    Red Dot mount for Accu Shadow??

    I have the one from CZC, it works great, although I went to the RDS plate. It's way better. Did you call CZC and check on the dove tail? It seems like the inventory on the website is not always accurate...

    Red Dot Knockoff

    Never mind, I just found a beat up RTS2 that still works(it doesn't hold zero very well) for a nice price....Only took 5 minutes!

    Red Dot Knockoff

    I have a CZ 85 that I want to use for dry fire practice this winter. I have a CZ custom multi optic red dot mount to use with it. I was thinking of getting a red dot knockoff to use for my dry firing. Anybody found one that works and can be mounted using this mount?

    CZ Custom - failed to meet expectations

    Just got my Accu-Shadow back with the RDS cut for my red dot. Way early and the work was perfect. Great company to deal with....

    DPP still having problems?

    I had 2 Delta Point Pros go bad at about 5000 rounds. Sent them in and got them back in about 5 weeks. They have been fine ever since(about 3500 rounds).

    Mark7 Evolution

    I really had no idea that my Dillon presses (550 and XL650) were such awful products until I found this thread. I'm thinking that I might just pick up a used 1050. These presses seem to be pretty nice stuff, just more than I need at this point. Just curious, how much money does everyone have invested in their new press by the time they have it running?
  8. One is used when you have one of the aftermarket bearing kits, the other is without.

    Can you use the frame weight and the micro dot frame mounted optic at the same time?
  10. Messed around with this for quite a while. I got one of these and haven't had a problem since: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Dillon-650-Ejector-wire-FIX-NEW-Upgrade-fix-for-ejector-wire-13298-problems-/253584738710

    Czechmate Minor Question

    I have everything down to 1 9mm load and 1 .38 short colt load. I don't want to venture in to the new arena of 9mm open major. I really like to shoot accurately and still be reasonably quick(maybe not slow would a better description), shooting minor fits that bill quite nicely. As I enter super senior hood, the red dot has really been a huge help. In our overall weekly standings, I average 12 out of 36 shooters. So I began thinking about a way to improve in the overall standings and still stay within my 9mm minor limits( and looking for an excuse to buy another toy), I starting looking around at other options. I got to wondering about whether a frame mounted optic and higher capacity mags would make a real difference or not...

    If you hover over the link, it says "Link added by VigLink". I wonder what that is....

    Czechmate Minor Question

    I noticed that on my Shadow the dot would go up and to the right. It was very consistent, so no real issue. This morning I put on some Double Alpha thick grips from my other gun. They seem to fit me somewhat better. I tried not to make any other grips changes. The dot now goes straight up. It also seems not to move quite so much. The reason that I was asking about this was we only have 2 people shooting Carry Optics at our club. I was wondering about fitting a Tactical Sport Orange with a frame mounted Delta Point Pro and using 29 round mags to see how much better I would finish in the overall standings. I don't want to shoot open major. Just some mental gymnastics....

    Czechmate Minor Question

    So do you think that you would any faster with your friend's gun versus your Shadow?
