    Coming Soon - 9mm Processed Range Brass

    Is this still available? If so Ill take the last box.
  2. James. Nice gun. My question is why are you getting out of open and going back to production. I am think of going the other way. Maybe you can help me make a decision.

      Kinda expensive. And my base is in 3gun and production. Open is fun. But my true love is irons.  Kinda doing the tactical Timmy  thing and want to shoot something close to what I also use as a edc. 

       

      So kinda a personal choice really. I know a lot of good people that shoot open. And it was really fun in the matches I shot. 

       

      Just dont shoot 3 gun heavy. LOL!! It’s a exercise in futility!! 😂😂😂😂

  3. Why leaving open?   Maintenance , cost, or just not having fun. I am on the fence help me. I shoot production now.

    Getting rid of "warm up" nerves/jitters

    Two good points in there. Getting stretched and the heart rate up does seem to help. Kinda a dry run before hand. And I love my coffee also. But go light when heading to the range or match. And don't drink any at all if doing long range until after. It really can screw with you. Get rid of the monsters and energy drinks. They really are bad for you.
  5. Awesome match!! Thanks Jeremy!! Looking forward to next year!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    22/45

    Cool Thanks. I will check it out. Looks like it needs another trigger. Took it apart for cleaning and although I put it back together the way it showed. It doesn't feel like the hammer is falling. Also the slide likes to stick even when there is no mag. I will check it out some more. But would like a better trigger on this thing.

    Where are all these parts found? On Midway? Also any good smiths that can do the work if we don't want to mess with it?

    Getting rid of "warm up" nerves/jitters

    For me its getting everything prepared the night before 'jamming mags, setting out gear and belt, etc' . Knowing I got dry fire time in the week before. Getting to the range a little early. And kind of like golf. When I step up to the line I have a 3-4 word mantra that I tell myself. (pick it based on what I am working on and make it positive) Like "Find the front sight, press the trigger, have fun" something simple and effective. Also if I have time 5,5,5 breathing. 5 breaths 5 seconds in, 5 seconds out. Helps me get calm and ready.
  10. Awesome match! Awesome RO's! It was a pleasure to shoot this and we were mostly out of the heat before it got bad. Definitely looking forward to next year. Thanks Jeremy!!

    NERD Holster Review?

    Just picked one up for a 2011. Will know soon! I like the way its built and the hanger is great. So far for dry fire it is a nice holster.
  12. Awesome! Don't want to miss this one. Since I missed it this year.
