  1. I first want to say that I may have inadvertently violated forum rules by posting a website of a vendor. I am in NO WAY connected to that website/vendor. I've sent a note to the mods asking for forgiveness already. My intention was to purely suggest a way to lighten the chassis. Having said that, the silver thing is a non acoustic timer according to that website. They're a company out of Germany.
  2. If that ModShot chassis is "Swiss cheesed", maybe it'll save some weight ? no ? Kind of like this.

    Thank you for the offer, I will have to take a rain check. I wish I was going, I don't shoot at anything beyond local club matches yet. Hopefully some day

    Would you please post more picture of this It looks too good for just "spy shots"
  5. I'm sorry to revive such an old thread, which has already had a couple of lives. I did search and found this and one other thread for clean(er/est) powder. I'm looking to start reloading for light 38s, maybe 38 short colt and light/minor 9mm, all for revolver. From what I read in this thread and the other one, is that it is "Hodgdon Clays" that is clean(er) at light power loads. Any more latest comments/inputs will be appreciated.
  6. Reading all this I am struck with two thoughts, some of this may have already been said above in a different way, so I apologize for that: 1. Most "traditional" shooting sports that I knew of had some level of speed, accuracy rating, power factor, movement and strategy. It was such an equipment race, sometimes too intimidating. Oh, you can shoot with what you already own. Yeah, not entirely I'm really glad that MDs and ranges are allowing more and more sports that take away one or two or more of those factors away for shooters that were deterred by either of those. 2. It's just much more refreshing that there are so many more options to shoot these days. When I first moved to the US, 20+ years ago, the most you could do was shoot trap/skeet and shoot at paper targets. These days, there's a match almost every weekend within a 100 mile radius. The sport is growing and I hope we don't get paralysis by analysis and just do whatever we can to provide more shooting opportunities to the young and old alike. I had proposed at our local steel match that we let all juniors under 12 get to shoot free when shooting with an adult. Anything to get more and more shooters. I will look for an AS match now
  7. It's next week in case anyone can accommodate a last minute opening in their schedules. Also, the match page on Facebook has been updated with some more information on prizes, raffle, etc.
  8. True, I was only trying to compare the price of it's competition. Hopefully, they come close in "real price".
  9. MSRP of $1549 is a little high, no ? The S&W 627PC lists on S&W website for $1289. Maybe they can package it with an additional cylinder for 9mm, like they did with the Blackhawk. Maybe also an optic adapter of some kind.
  10. Hi Everyone, The South Kent Sportsman's Club is once again hosting the Michigan State Steel Challenge. Here's the match info Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/events/360648268102304/ Here's the sign in link for PractiScore. https://practiscore.com/michigan-steel-challenge-championship/register
  11. The other way to skin this cat, and I think someone alluded/said this already is to see if the Glock trigger could be made "similar" to a 2011. Maybe single action, short(er) reset, hammer instead of firing pin, 70s (no firing pin block), etc. The glock action already does half (or more of) the work of cycling the slide, ejecting, rechambering the next round... the other part(s), to cock the hammer or firing pin, reset the sear or trigger bar, the trigger need not going that far forward, etc. needs to be engineered and executed. It may or may not have the trigger pull safety, it could be an "option" per taste, similarly the thumb and grip safety could also be an option, per shooter preference or sport. While we're at it, maybe think about a fixed barrel/sights The Laugo Alien seems like an interesting design, I want to see how that pans out.
  12. There are a few revolver shooters at the monthly steel match at South Kent Sportsman's club, which is about an hour or so from Lansing area. I think you may get a few to bite from there too. Please do keep us informed.
  13. Would you please elaborate, seems like you know more I want to know, I'm sure others are too.
  14. In one the recent ShootingUSA shows where they showed a steel challenge match, I did see Dave Olhasso shoot, what looked like to me an 8shot "franken-Ruger". I think its the new SRH 8shot with a longer custom barrel. So, I'm hoping they come out with one for the general market. I have a couple of screen grabs, but I don't know if it's ok to post here.
  15. Would help in transitions, but I digress
