  1. Is it so you can use a rest closer to the muzzle ie. don't have to stick as much barrel in a hole as with 12 in. length?
  2. It never has done this in the past. Would it be caused by the mag feed lips being open a little bit too much so the follower is higher than it's supposed to be with last round still in mag?
  3. Went to the range today to help my son sight-in his new G34. I am taking him to his first match next weekend. I took my STI Edge .40 along with some of the ammo I load for it to see that it still hits where it's pointed at. It is usually very reliable but as I have taken some time off shooting 3-gun I figured I'd shoot a few rounds at some paper and be sure about it. It was still on target but the slide locked back with 1-round left in the mag every time? Didn't matter which mag (I only brought 2) or how many rounds I loaded. It would shoot all but the last round and then slide locked back with last round sitting there ready to go. Hit the slide release and shoot the last round??? I'm totally confused! I guess I can still play with it if I drop mags with 2 or more still in them but not really happy about it at this point. Anybody know why this would be happening?
  4. Wow! What a read! I love that book/story! Wish I could afford to pass em' out to everyone I think would read it!
  5. I would go with the 550 for your 1st machine. I went that route and have never regretted it for one second. When/if you decide you want to go to another press you can get alot of your initial investment back selling it used.
  6. I've had the same problem. Usually a dirty/micro-corroded powder funnel seems to be the culprit.
  7. Wow! That was a good video, I like that little between the eyes camera. Thanks for the link.
  8. You're not alone. This economy has slowed down alot of people's shooting schedules. Hopefully things will be on the mend soon if you know what I mean. Dry-fire practice is free and some little target's,a garage and a timer can work wonders for anyone. Good luck to you.
  9. Yeah, you got that right! Nothing like seeing the same group of guys haul everything out and set it up and the other group of guys who can't seem to pull themselves away from their little gum-flappin' session's long enough to help.
  10. I put one in my stock at one time to shoot off-hand plates at KCR. It helped me settle the rifle down. Did not bother me much as in that shoot you are not moving the gun much.
  11. Good job! I remember the first time they handed me some cash at the clubhouse there. I made some money shooting!! Wanted to frame it. Of course when I figured lost work-time, fuel, camping fees, entry fees and ammo I realized, I lost money shooting. Oh well, it was all worth it.
  12. I have had my CTR-02 for maybe 8-9 years now and love it! It is the best shooting rifle I've ever owned and I want another JP upper to put on a Bushmaster lower I've got sitting around here. Of course I will send the lower to JP for innard's.
  13. Thanks John. Yeah, I've shot out at Sir Walter Raleigh but it's a long drive for me! Shoot at US Training Center and it's only 45 mins. away, can't beat that facility! I have a local range that has some guys that I think would have fun but I think they are maybe kind of intimidated to go to UST (Blackwater). Thought I'd try and help them get something going on their home turf.Dave It's the do'ers like you that make the sport as great as it is, on behalf of the NC shooters, thanks Thank you for the kind word's! We'll see what happens?
  14. Thanks for the concise formula! Looks pretty straightforward.
