  1. I also go to the line with 6 mags. Although I've never needed to go to the 6th mag on a plan, I have dropped a mag during a reload and needed it.
  2. I have one of these, and although I've never tried it with a Glock mag, they are super strong. 87kg = 191lbs https://www.doublealpha.biz/us/daa-magnet-for-race-master-pouch
  3. I was being specific about the attitudes, not any individual. As for punctuation, it's the content and how it is said, not the punctuation. For your last point, it seems that no instruction is necessary.

  5. A.T. Barr passed away on January 4th this year. I met AT here on the forums, back in 2009/2010. He was always full of good advice and sharp wit. The very first real match I ever shot, AT loaned me the gear to shoot it. I was in the area, and mentioned I was outside of Lexington, Ky, and he told me about the monthly USPSA match at BGSL. I showed up, found where he said he was gonna be, and went from there. We shot all but the first BITBG matches together, up until he had to quit shooting USPSA due to health reasons, and even after that, we would meet at the Battle, just to BS and watch. We'd go out to dinner the night before with the wives, and generally have a great time. Several years back, he moved out to Tucson, AZ, and, although we still kept in touch, it was not as frequent as before. A year or so after he and Barb moved to Tucson, my wife and I visited them, had some great food, some great bourbon (AT loved 4 Roses Bourbon), and a good cigar. He was a great knife maker, an avid USPSA competitor (when he could) and a great friend. He will be greatly missed. https://www.knifemagazine.com/knifemaker-a-t-barr-passes-away-at-75/
  6. It is an orphan, but it's a fun orphan. I use mine for pin shoots and such.
  7. Your "MOM" shows in your posts...

    That new TS2

    When I started shooting Production, I was shooting a 40. Very soft with the right load. Only reason I moved to 9 was cost of bullets.
  9. All this Open and CO talk needs to be in their respective forums. Let's get back on topic, please.
  10. If you have a torch of some kind, you can do a coatings test. Drill a small hole in the side near the base and then heat with a torch till the lead melts. See if the lead runs out and the coating remains in the bullet shape...
  11. I'd make a slide with a weight, drop from the same height down the slide. That way they all get hit pretty close to the same.
  12. Was looking for a video for Dranoel and came across this. Snippet from the web page. "This was back in the days of single stack 1911 pistols with single port compensators, like this old gun of mine. I had a stainless steel hook welded onto the frame, because during this time, it was popular to shoot with the index finger of the support hand wrapped around the trigger guard – something local shooter (and two time World Speed Shooting Champion) Chip McCormick did." Pic is of the authors 1911 in 1989? https://blog.krtraining.com/1989-texas-challenge-uspsa-match/
  13. Was it a heads up match (both shooting at the same time) or like USPSA? I did a search for challenge match, and although I did not find any video of what you seek, I did find links to a Texas Challenge Match from 1989, with WSB's and stage descriptions. https://blog.krtraining.com/1989-texas-challenge-uspsa-match/
  14. Several questions. What press and dies are you using? What is your case prep reloading routine? What do your primers look like after being fired? How full is the case with 4.2 gr of Frex Green? What is the relative burn rate of Frex Green as compared to Titegroup or VV N320? Do you have access to a heavier bullet (like a 147gr bullet)? I think you need a different powder. VV load data shows a minimum charge of 3.9 of N320 with a 124 (PF of 126) and a max charge of 4.3. The max charge (out a 4" barrel) shows a velocity of 1096, which would be a PF of 135. A heavier bullet will require less powder than a lighter bullet to make PF.
  15. No, they won't. AttitudePlease be polite. Or if not polite, at least respectful.No bickering. Regardless of the subject matter.Antagonistic, offensive, or quarrelsome tones are not acceptable.No trolling. No alternate accounts.
  16. I suggest that you read the forum guidelines about making and selling things here on the forum.
  17. Instead of turning on Handy's Bend road to go to BGSL, go down the road a few more miles. At the end of the road is the High Bridge of Kentucky, designed by John Roebling...The same John Roebling that built the Brooklyn Bridge.
  18. In certain barrels, that area is much more supported. Look at an old 38 auto barrel. It was much less supported than the current 38 super barrel.
  19. With the stuck firing pin, it fired out of battery, which would blow out the bottom of the case like that.
  20. In art, there are many masters, Vermeer, Van Gogh, Rembrandt, Da Vinci, just to name a few. They all had certain things in common, namely practice and patience Many great artist (and future masters!) followed the techniques laid down by those before them, but just as the masters mentioned above, they modified those techniques to suit their strengths, weaknesses, or needs. Just because they modified those techniques or found a different way to see or express something does not make them any less of a master. If every artist followed the same path as every other artist, there would be no innovation, no art, as everything would be the same. Just because someone has found a method that works for them does not mean that it will work for everyone, nor does it mean that a method that works for many people will work for every person.
  21. I'm only going to post this once, if it has to be brought up again, this thread will get locked. Posting GuidelinesAttitudePlease be polite. Or if not polite, at least respectful.No bickering.

  22. Yep. There have been a rash of spammers/scammers of late. Remember, if a deal sounds too good to be true, it probably is a scam.
