  1. I did the exact same things several years ago at an area match - with my left hand tied to a cable for that part of the stage. After I looked at the round and damn they sure look a lot alike. Cured me of picking up random ammo off the ground or even my own if I don't see it hit the ground specifically

    My S2 modified for CO

    I am thinking of doing the same thing - same DPP etc. this season is more than half done so plenty of time once it is done for next year or maybe some indoor winter stuff - so, that said: How long gettinging beginning to end and (also important) how much after all the dust settled did the entire work cost minus the cost of the optic but gun and all modifications. Want to know what I am going to have to sell, how many classes I have to teach and what other sources of funding do I need to look at. A friend of mine just bought a gun to get set for CO from CGW and said 12 weeks about and around $2,000 (or so). Thanks

    Dead Trigger?

    Yes - the last round went off and ejected, new round fed but not completely back into battery - i think. All I know is that the trigger felt like it does when I am field stripping and taking off the slide.

    Dead Trigger?

    I am shooting the optic version of the XDM that is sort of a “Franklin” gun - upper came with the milled slide, lower custom is from work done for my backup production gun by Canyon Creek. All of last year not a problem - about 2,000 rounds through with no problems until now. Today is a 200 or so round match this only happened three times but that is maybe three times too many. I would pull the trigger, the gun would fire and the trigger would not reset (or something but it was dead). I rack the slide and back in business but time lost is time lost. One of the people on my squad approached me and asked if I was using factory ammo - which I am 147 Federal American Eagle - have used that for several years with no problem. He said that my shot almost sounded like a squib - distinctly different than my other shots. He correctly called the three times that this happened so not just someone’s imagination. So, any thoughts? This gun until now has been flawless so this happening is a concern. Anyone out there who knows a whole lot more than me have any thoughts or experiences. Sure would appreciate the help. Thank you.

    First Match and I Did Horrible

    I had the PAC 3 timer and as long as traditional USPSA with pistols no problem. Then for rimfire rifles it was a problem. Same thing for the folks with PCC - switched to the CED 7000 and problem solved. I think it is the most sensitive one out there which for the long guns is a big help. I did not like the rechargeable battery at first either but found that while it drops to half it will get you through a five stage match with a 12 person squad with no problem. If you need some self assurance there is an attachment you can get with battery backup that uses AAA battery and you are back in business. That said in two years or so I have never had to use it. That even went for 7 stage matches. Good luck and have fun.

    SA XDm OSP OEM Slide for sale

    I have a OSP on a Canyon Creek lower and it works fine - four matches fine anyway - the lower has the Canyon Creek magic with the grip and trigger etc. The upper has the RMR - on that point though I hade to buy an entire new gun with the OSP and swap out Springfield is not really open to sharing - now I have a backup production gun and a pretty good XDm for CO.
  10. I am using a comp-tac holster for CO in USPSA - seems to work well and no problem with the optic fitting in. http://www.comp-tac.com/

    USPSA vs IDPA question

    Any day shooting is a good thing - some gooder than others but its all good. I remember the first time as an RO with for an USPSA match with an "event challenged" IDPA shooter - vest, and the 1 - 1 - 2 back to one more on the first two and I'm thinking "I have ADD" this would really be a challenge - so as many have said and one more to put it - USPSA - what to shoot if you have ADD....anyway have fun.
  15. STAY AWAY FROM CHICAGO - there is nothing worse with a higher chance of getting arrested even when you do it right. I know of a situation where a person checked in someplace on the east coast to Denver and got diverted to Chicago due to weather. He had TSA and airline checked in right, all was well and then he picked up his luggage for the night - when he went to check in the next day he was arrested for having an illegal weapon - not a good deal. Direct as many advise is the best way to go - there is no more anti state than Illinois.
