  1. On the advice of a gunsmith I have always substituted a standard glock striker spring (don’t know the weight) with total reliability. I assume it’s slightly heavier than the standard M&P spring.
  2. Buy a bag of these and pass them out to friends https://holsterops.com/collections/handgun-accessories/products/tap-rack-training-aid-trt
  3. Any news on discounts from Stoeger.com? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. That was absolutely the right thing to do. Children grow up so fast and hopefully you have pictures of your range time together. There is plenty of time for matches after they move out.
  5. Search on Gunbroker.com There are several sellers of M&P slides on there. https://www.gunbroker.com/Pistol-Slides/search?Keywords=M%26P&Sort=13
  6. I highly recommend https://www.landmprecisiongunworks.com Mark Housel did a superb job milling my Shield for a Shield RMS and will do any M&P slide while retaining the rear sight dovetail. You don't want the rear sight in front of the optic; hard to see it and it clutters the optic sight picture. Good Luck!
  7. Yes they are soft I’ve replaced two sets for my original DPs in the last 3 years because of battery replacement. First set was from S&W second set was from Leupold as S&W doesn’t (won’t?) carry them. Would like to find the stainless ones. Thanks Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Where did he get the stainless screws? Will buy a box! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Fixed the post, OAL was 1.150 No primer signs. I picked up 1lb of CFE from a prize table and wanted to see if I could get 145 power factor to match Federal 147 HST for training. Not gonna happen though; the increments in PF above 4.2 grains were already diminishing returns. I will settle for 131 PF at 4.2 grains max load as it felt good, was very accurate and shot to the same point of aim as my standard load. And no noticeable smoke with plated bullets. Great for indoor matches. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  12. From Maggie: Dear Friends, my heart is broken. The love of my life, my soulmate, my precious husband Michael Voigt passed away after a long battle with cancer. We have been together for 11 years, I know we will be together forever. Services and Interment will be held Saturday, April 14th at 3:00pm at Rose Hills Memorial Park, 3888 Workman Mill Road, Whittier, CA 90601. Join our family in celebrating his life and legacy. In lieu of flowers, I ask that you support the great passion of his life by donating to the USPSA Junior Program. https://uspsa.org/announcement/576 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. I was wearing +.25” thick glasses when I got my LASIK done in 2001. What a blessing to not have to wear 2 lb glasses all day. No more headaches! My only regret is having the “standard” procedure done with the dominant eye treated for distance and the non dominant eye treated for reading. So I still need prescription shooting glasses to see iron sights. After 15 years the prescription was changed slightly to sharpen it up and I had my best Western States Single Stack finish. At age 65 I’m having the most fun shooting carry optics. Imagine my delight when I discovered the Deltapoint 7.5 triangle was perfectly sharp without prescription glasses! I can wear any plano tinted glasses for daytime and clear for indoors. At the time I was so afraid of the procedure I did visit several providers and settled on the most expensive one who had endorsements from pro baseball and football players. Plus he guaranteed enough Valium to insure I wouldn’t care about having my eyes cut. I do use eye drops (Systane) 1 or 2 times a day, maybe more at a dusty match but it’s an ingrained habit plus it lets me sit out a few rounds of taping and resetting and give my knees a rest. That’s the next issue. I would encourage you to find a doctor who is not hoplophobic and can help you keep your dominant eye focused on the front sight. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. I’ve loaded 5 magazines worth of dummy rounds with hot glue in the primer pockets to clearly distinguish them from live rounds. I think it’s important to dry fire and practice reloading with weighted magazines, especially with a plastic gun as draws feel dramatically different. Like MM above my several M&Ps (FS and Shields) have thousands of dry fires without issue. I never expected the hot glue to be a cushion, just a safety reminder. There is also a Bill Rogers dry fire insert that allows you to lock back and rack the slide without chambering anything. You can insert it over dummy rounds to keep the magazines weighted: https://holsterops.com/products/tap-rack-training-aid-trt Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Jeremy Living in probably the same state as you I’ve resorted to shopping slides online. Currently on gunbroker https://www.gunbroker.com/Item/741735977 Drop in an unported barrel and you’re set. I like the Deltapoint 7.5 (not Pro) and removed the irons to speed the learning curve. I’m putting them back on after losing the dot (battery died) on a last stage. Larry Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
