  1. Auto Zone has these for about $10. Torque wrench fits right in the tube..... http://www.zorotools.com/g/00044673/k-G1492346?utm_source=Bing&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=PLA
  2. Safariland 771's work for me - both 45 and 38 super/9mm.
  3. Some of us could care less about big matches.....
  4. I use a Safariland #5188-53 for a Springfield hi-cap (should be close to Caspian frame). Also use it for standard 1911's.
  5. "If it Flies, Floats or F***s, it's gonna' cost you plenty." Anon?
  6. I ordered my 550 set up for SuperComp and they sent it with a #3 shell plate, also marked for 380 acp. it's a No.3. My 9mm shell plate is a No. 5 SuperComp and 38 Super dies are the same, just not the 9mm ones. When in doubt, call Brian...
  7. I swear I stole this form someone on this forum, and hope it doesn't upset them if I post it again: If you have ever loved a dog, there are three days in your life you will always remember . . . The first is a day, blessed with happiness, when you bring home your young new friend. You may have spent weeks deciding on a breed. You may have asked numerous opinions of many vets, or done long research in finding a breeder. Or, perhaps in a fleeting moment, you may have just chosen that silly looking mutt in a shelter -- simply because something in its eyes reached your heart. But when you bring that chosen pet home, and watch it explore, and claim its special place in your hall or front room -- and when you feel it brush against you for the first time -- it instills a feeling of pure love you will carry with you through the many years to come. The second day will occur eight or nine or ten years later. It will be a day like any other. Routine and unexceptional. But, for a surprising instant, you will look at your longtime friend and see age where you once saw youth. You will see slow deliberate steps where you once saw energy. And you will see sleep when you once saw activity. So you will begin to adjust your friend's diet -- and you may add a pill or two to their food. And you may feel a growing fear deep within yourself, which bodes of a coming emptiness. And you will feel this uneasy feeling, on and off, until the third day finally arrives. And on this day -- if your friend and whatever higher being you believe in have not decided for you, then you will be faced with making a decision of your own -- on behalf of your lifelong friend, and with the guidance of your own deepest Spirit. But whichever way your friend eventually leaves you -- you will feel as alone as a single star in the dark night. If you are wise, you will let the tears flow as freely and as often as they must. And if you are typical, you will find that not many in your circle of family or friends will be able to understand your grief, or comfort you. But if you are true to the love of the pet you cherished through the many joy-filled years, you may find that a soul -- a bit smaller in size than your own -- seems to walk with you, at times, during the lonely days to come. And looking down at the place where your dear, perhaps dearest, friend used to lie -- you will remember those three significant days. The memory will most likely be painful, and leave an ache in your heart -- As time passes the ache will come and go as if it has a life of its own. You will both reject it and embrace it, and it may confuse you. If you reject it, it will depress you. If you embrace it, it will deepen you. Either way, it will still be an ache. But there will be, I assure you, a fourth day when -- along with the memory of your pet -- and piercing through the heaviness in your heart -- there will come a realization that belongs only to you. It will be as unique and strong as our relationship with each animal we have loved, and lost. This realization takes the form of a Living Love -- this Love will remain and grow -- and be there for us to remember, always. It is a love we have earned. It is the legacy our pets leave us when they go.
  8. Just had my second hip replacement in July 2012 (first in 2008) and only my 62 years are keeping me from recovering as fast from the second one. I took it easy for almost a year with the first one, not knowing how great the risk of dislocation really was. After about 3 months after the second one, I'm back to running (well, waddling) again and rely heavily on the first replacement. I don't consciously think about dislocation any more - don't tell my doctor.... The relief of pain from the condition necessitating the replacements was well worth the rehab, range time lost and discomfort. Work the muscles, follow rehab directions and you'll recover completely.
  9. I'm using an RCBS #16 for super comp and Lee #19 for standard 38 super. The RCBS #16 holder is listed for 9mm (and works fine for them too). Standard 38 super won't fit in the #16.
  10. Just tried my "old style" CR Speed, model G ("Glock" is molded onto the side) and it adjusts just fine to my 9L. Should work fine for all the M&P's.
  11. Sent a PM Rock Hill USPSA match cancelled for Thanksgiving, sorry.... BUT, the Steel Challenge match, Dec 4th, is still on. Come out and try your hand!
  12. Steve J - I just joined SC this year, when my USPSA membership came due. Since I wasn't sure how the 'renewal' would work along with signing up for SC, I called and got it straight over the phone. Very easy and quick. I got the new member packet, number, patch, etc. I'll have to watch the renewal next year to see what I get. Flex - What our club is getting for the money is this: We were a small IDPA-only club (30-40 members) holding one match a month. I got hooked on SC, shooting at another local club, and suggested getting involved. In August of 2009 we started with about $1500 in the treasury and some loans from a few club members and contacted Karl at GT Targets (BE forum vendor). He got us a 1/2 set of targets in less than 2 weeks and we started holding matches. The first match had more shooters than many of our IDPA matches had seen. We had shooters from throughout the state and in January this year we had one shooter travel 4 hours from Virginia just to shoot steel. We have recouped the price of the targets and SC now contributes to range maintenance expenses ($10 match fee) after we pay range fees and the SC activity fee. There has been enough interest in SC to warrant the formation of a Scholastic Steel Challenge team and we are now including Scholastic SC-specific matches (all 4 of the required stages for SSC) designed to emphasize participation by our young shooters. All of our members shoot these matches, but it's nice to see an entire squad of 12-20 yr old shooters competing together. This month we held our first (member-only) multi-gun match as a trial. We're using USPSA rules and, as a result, I see the club affiliating with USPSA in the near future to hold official matches in that venue (with the possibility of a USPSA handgun match down the road). There have already been several of our members branch out into USPSA - something almost unheard of before this 'new' sport arrived to our club. We are now holding 2 official matches per month with the possibility of a third down the road, each with the same participation we had as a single-match club in the past. We're getting new shooters involved in the shooting sports, a youth shooting program we didn't have previously, and a growing interest into branching out to other shooting ventures for our little club. Shortly after we began matches, a third club in our state announced SC matches and has also started a Scholastic SC team, so interest is growing despite the lack of perceived "what-do-I-get-for-my-money?" I think our underlying reason for affiliating was "it's the right thing to do", but there sure have been some positive changes since we took the plunge. May have been a naive attitude, but it's working!
  13. Accelerator Roundabout Showdown Speed Option These are the stages we'll shoot every other month. Alternating months (starting with January) we'll shoot: Smoke and Hope, Pendulum, Five-to-Go and Outer Limits. That arrangement has us shooting all the stages shot at the national level every 2 months, plus 2 of the 4 Scholastic Steel Challenge stages are shot each month as part of our match. We've got a strong beginning to our Scholastic program and will be looking for competition in the near future as more clubs affiliate.
