  1. Take a look at some Sevigny Competition sights if you can. They are my favorite sight picture of any gun I own.
  2. I second what Rowdy said about changing targets. Something IDPA actually does better. Also, reward competitor plaques/trophies with the 5-6-7 plan. Five shooters to recognize first place, six for second, seven for third. Plaques are not that expensive and I am not ashamed to put a second or even third place one on my mancave wall. I kinda like match t-shirts. Cotton is fine. What I don't like is what happened at a certain area match last year--asked for shirt size on application, then on sign-in day they said, "Oh, we decided shirts would cost too much." wth
  3. Yes but my point was that the Wolff spring may not be as heavy as you think.
  4. Factory weight is 17, I believe, but that's with an ISMI-type spring. Supposedly, Wolff and ISMI of the same weight are two different animals. I bet a 16 pound ISMI would lock your slide tight. Don't be afraid to try a heavier Wolff.
  5. Glock 48 if I'm shooting Glock competitively, Springfield EMP4 if I'm competing with 1911/2011.

    downside to MOS?

    I believe gen 5 uses a different height sight.

    Yeah sucks getting beat by a guy who has to go home after the match and study for a spelling test tomorrow. I would gladly trade him my glass ankle and cholesterol medicine for some of his youthful energy. Congrats to the kid, though. I hear ya on the basepads--Arredondo is less trouble, at least on a Glock mag. What little I've used TTI on a Glock mag seemed like it would eventually wear down the tabs on the mag tube if it's constantly off and back on.

    Yes, Lim-A 2nd. What was it Ricky Bobby said? Second place is first loser. Keep a mag brush in your bag and immediately scrub every mag that you drop. I've had trouble with dusty Glock mags in the past.
  9. Same problem with my gen 5 G17. BBI 147 had to be loaded way shorter than I was comfortable with. Got the barrel reamed and now I shoot anything I want.

    Did you disassemble and clean every mag that hit the ground after each stage? If this was at the Atomic Blast, several stages were quite dusty. Even Glock mags are susceptible to dust. Ask me how I know.
  11. I shoot handguns left-handed and am right-eye dominant. I just pivot my head slightly. The above is possibly true, but I think MemphisMechanic's point was that neither one is necessary.
  12. I haven't shot it enough to know yet, but I doubt I'll see much difference. The factory barrel was accurate, but like I said above, they kinda scare me. The KKM has been 100% reliable.
  13. I have a Ghost "Bullet Forward" slide stop on mine. It's puts the bump or extra meat or whatever on the front of the slide stop instead of the rear. It serves two purposes--easier to drop the slide for lefties and helps keep right handers from bumping the slide stop. I'm a southpaw and I like it, but I have no idea if it works as advertised for right handers.
  14. Jerry cracked one on his PCC. They do seem a little flimsy, but I'm happy so far. Less overall drama (unless they start cracking). You gotta shoot this 24 next time. It's definitely not ".40 snappy."
  15. My KKM 24 drop in had to be fitted (not much). I got it because big, loose Glock .40 chambers make me nervous, not to increase accuracy. However, the fitted barrel may be a blessing in disguise.
