  1. I've shot two matches with my JP GMR 13 using these extensions with zero problems. They have become my favorite.
  2. When I said the same locked case as the firearm, I was referring to the hardsided locked case the gun is in. I routinely ship both in the same suitcase.
  3. Whoa! Those boxes can’t be used to transport ammo on an airplane. Each round has to have an individual place separated from the other rounds in the box. Think factory ammo boxes, not bulk packed. Ammo can’t be shipped in the same locked case as the firearm is shipped in. Check with your airline’s baggage policies prior to showing up at the airport. I fly a lot to matches with guns and ammo and it’s easy, as long as you follow the rules.
  4. Extra shot is earned at the line of fire. Extra hit is earned at the target.
  5. Registration for this year’s IRC opens today in PractiScore.
  6. Thinking of replacing my stock handguard with something that’s lighter. Any recommendations?
  7. Looks like next year’s Area Six Championship has been moved from Florida to Oklahoma!
  8. Just bought a MBX mega extension. Holds 57 rounds. Ran flawless today at CFRPC USPSA Match.
  9. Want to blow your mind? Start talking about par time stages and total time scoring! LOL!
  10. That's it. Write good stage descriptions and all of these problems go away.
  11. ICORE has two types of courses of fire. Shots Limited or Shots Unlimited. It doesn't have any rules specifically governing steel challenge type stages. It has rules (6.6.10. Failure to hit a Stop Plate and 6.6.5.1. Covering FTE's on a steel-only stage) that apply to steel challenge type stages, but doesn't have a rule governing what a steel challenge stage is. Find an example in the rules that allows throwing out the worst string. You won't. That being said, the BOD didn't want to enact rules to govern steel challenge type stages. The idea is to give Match Directors total control over them. You won't find a rule that says hitting the stop plate ends the string. You will find a rule that allows shooters to fire right up to the issuance of "If clear, close cylinder,holster". So what happens if a shooter missed a plate but hit the stop plate afterwards? Did the string stop when the stop plate was hit or can he take a makeup shot prior to "If clear, close cylinder, holster"? That's why the wording of Chapter 2 that covers the stage being explained by a complete written stage description is so important to these stages. I hope this explains my rationale more completely.
  12. Emphasis on written stage description. There are no other rules governing steel challenge type stages in ICORE. Match Directors have a free hand determining when the clock stops. They can choose when the plate is hit initially or at last shot.
  13. Earlier this year, proposed rule changes were brought before the board to codify Steel Challenge type stages and par time stages. The rule book has penalties that cover overtime shots and failure to hit a stop plate. It was decided not to adopt these changes so as to give Match Directors flexibility in stage design. Review Capter 2 " The course of fire will be explained to the shooters by a complete written description of the course of fire and/or a walk through from the Range Officer." 4.3. Requires stages and their descriptions must be set up clearly. Make things easy to understand. It is up to the Match Director to specify in the Written Stage Briefing when the time stops.
  14. So far, Ruger is the Title Match Sponsor, Hogue, Apex, and Proarms are signed up as match sponsors. TK Custom is a stage sponsor and Dillon is an event sponsor. More to come!
  15. Drive the roll pin out from top to bottom, but it is not necessary to completely remove it. Just drive it out enough for the mag release to come out. Keep some pressure on the release when you drive the pin out so it doesn't bind up. When i reinstalled it, I put a 3/32" drill bit in from the top to help line up the release when I drove the roll pin back up from the bottom. again, keep some pressure on the release to make re-installation easier.
  16. Took less than 30 minutes to install. Used red locktite on the screws. Ground off the tips of the screws that protruded from the back side of the paddle. Easy peasey.
  17. Registration is open for the 2017 International Revolver Championship. Go the Matchsignup.org to sign up.
  18. Take one round and drop it into each hole one at a time to see if there is a dimensional problem. Might be just one is a tad undersized.
  19. Hogue Big Butts are perfectly legal in Classic Division.
  20. Definitely 3/32". Drive out from top to bottom but not necessary to remove it completely.
  21. 180 gr Blue Bullet, 4.4 gr 320, 1.125" OAL. Chrono'ed at the Florida Open at 170.8 PF.
  22. Look on the Cajun gunworks web site under technical support. Great explanation on springs and how to pick them. They are load specific. I'm using a 13 lb main spring. My 180 gr Blue Bullets over 4.4 gr of 320 eject out about 7 feet. I use a 15 lb hammer spring. I tried a 13 lb but had light strikes. This is in my Tactical Sport.
  23. Just got my CGW adjustable sear and hammer kit for my Tactical Sport. Anyone know of a few good you tube videos for install and adjustments?
