  1. If you look at the very, very fine print, I give you full credit for it...
  2. I run 2.9gr of TiteGroup under a 160gr Bayou bullet loaded to 1.160. It gives me 132 power factor. This is with Starline brass and Federal Small Pistol primers...
  3. Ron, I'll probably bring my 627 to CrossRoads next week. I usually have a red dot on it and shoot it in minor open. Lots of revo guys over at the CIPS matches. Let me know if I can help.

    Fenwick, I bought the parts and had Rick down in Osceola do the gunsmithing part. He did a really good job for me.
  5. Why do 1911/2011 guns stop at 2 or 3 rounds when this happens? Why don't they go until the mag is empty?
  6. I think the original poster was talking about the Big Dawg steel match. There are about 4 of us on this forum shooting it for the first time since it has moved to our range. From what I understand, it's 15 courses with the plate racks being shot 4 times at each course. That's 60 draws for the match. I'm thinking the holster might make a difference in this case. It's different from anything that I have shot before.
  7. I have a .45 ACP moon clip that I keep on each post. When there is a table start, I pull these to the top of the post to hold it away from my belt....
  8. How hard is to load the server when you have a USPSA course that states all mags/moon clips must come from the table at the start. Do the moon clips have to overlay each other in some special order? I use my revolver mostly for USPSA and we see this from time to time. The idea of reaching for the moon clips at the same location sounds promising.
  9. Makes good sense, thanks for the answer....
  10. How could that be any faster? On the Ghost, the gun is clear of the holster in about 1/2 inch. That looks like it would a good 2 inches. I don't think that I could be any faster(or slower in my case) with either of them.
  11. I have both the Race Master and the Ghost holster. I prefer the Ghost...
  12. A forum should be set up for carry optics. The only thing that it has in common with open is the red dot. It's a large enough division to have it own forum.
  13. 70 bucks plus shipping. I put it on my 627 and took it to the range. The dot is much brighter in full sunshine. I had to have the glass replaced also from my carry optics gun induced damage. I have 2 v4's on my open guns. I'm not sure that I will send them in to be upgraded. Open guns seem to be not as hard on the optics...
  14. I broke 2 DPP red dots and 2 RTS2 red dots in about 3000 rounds on my CZ SP01. Both manufacturers backed them up and my DPP has another 1200 with no further issues.
  15. Good post. The only thing I would add is that the carry optics red dot scopes are still a weak spot.
  16. I just got my RTS2 back from C-More. I had them update it to V5 while it was there. Dot does seem crisper, buttons now have a slight clicking feel, and it goes to sleep in about five minutes. It wakes up when you pick up the gun. If it holds up, I think it's a winner....
  17. Hey Professor, Just a quick note to say thanks. I followed you article and finally finished my Accu Shadow. I wouldn't have tried it without your help. Trigger pull is now 1lb 15oz single action and 4.5 lbs double. Being as the gun was already a CZ custom, I was amazed by the improvement. Thanks again...
  18. Will they be replacing them with something new or are they getting out of the open gun business?
  19. We've had 4 new ones show up at our club this year. One had some ammo issues for a while. One of mine had issues with the mag release, which STI fixed. Now they all seem to be running fine. I'd buy another one...
  20. I asked the president and my area coordinator about this in 2016. Both responded quickly and answered my question. Their responses are below. Sounds like they should now be open to talking about it by now. I think this was before they announced the higher capacity for CO. I pitched this to the board in January, and again unofficially since then. As of now, it is a no go. Email your AD for sure, so that I can get support for this. The driving factor was that we didn't allow anything without a reciprocating slide mounted optic on it. Thanks. Mike Skip, I completely understand the desire for not so young eyes to use a dot. The board did discuss this but felt the division needed to get settled in before considering a change like this. I am sure it will come up again and now that I know your thoughts...I will make sure it comes up again. Thanks for sharing your thoughts Sherwyn
  21. I see some comps have a large port then a couple of smaller ports and some have a smaller port then larger ports. Does this affect your choice of powder and bullets? If so, how? Thanks
  22. I really don't shoot rifles that much so I can't say. They really are nice for my open gun. I had a set of MSA's, which were fine for prod, but they weren't near as good as the Impact Pro for my open gun.
  23. Look at the Impact Pro. They are 30db, auto shut off, use AAA batteries, and are about $60. I really like mine...
  24. I mix up a 40/40/20 solution of Kroil/Hoppes #9/Slip 2000 carbon killer in a needle bottle. I put this in the comp and let it soak over night. The next day I put some Slip 2000 on one of these big q-tip gun cleaners and wipe it out. This will take out about 90%. Once in a while I use one of these brushes in my Dremel on the lowest speed. One of the local guys told me about spraying Dillon case lube in the comp before shooting, it helps too. I know it doesn't need all of this, but I'm retired and have some free time to tinker....
