  1. Looks like I'll have a week off in the middle of March. I'd love to use it as an opportunity to travel and, preferably, include a match. So... where to? I'm open to any suggestions. Requirements: 1) It has to be warm; 2) the region has to have other things to do (city stuff, nature stuff, or both); and 3) ease of travel to and from should be reasonable. The match is definitely secondary, so it doesn't have to be a major match or some Michelin-starred club.

    Which DIY upgrades would you do to a Shadow 2?

    They have a lot more options, including significantly narrower blades. They also recess the the cuts, so the FO is protected and glare* reduced. * When the rod absorbs a lot of light, it can make the FO appear too bright, including casting a glow.

    CZ ACCUSHADOW Failure to Fire

    Add an extended firing pin and appropriate spring, if your gun does not have it. Which hammer spring do you have in the gun? Stick with a 13# spring if you're shooting anything except federal primers.

    You can also use it a lot.

    Recoil and hammer spring. Dawson front sight. Grips of your choice. It will never cease to amaze me how many people ruin their guns by trying to follow the "more stuff" model. Sure, my Mink gun is cool, but it's only marginally "better" than my stock gun. Both are noticeably nicer than guns with tons of aftermarket parts and home gunsmithing.

    JJ Racaza, damn!!

    It already did break hearts (I zeroed the stage by shooting a beautiful 2" group about 1" into the hardcover on the tuxedo... *tiny violin playing*). However, I can definitely see myself revisiting it in practice. Did anybody happen to pace that stage off? I intended to and forgot. Going from memory, I'd say it was ~20 yards.

    Ditto. I'm mildly disappointed, to be honest.
  9. I keep an old pair of shorts with the inner belt threaded through it in my dryfire area. It's fast and easy to change. I can't imagine a battle belt working well for such purposes. They're quite bulky and will change the way your gear sits on your hips.
  10. Loaded mags with dummy rounds. I can't imagine any good reason to use empty mags, save the instances where I practice dropping empty mags. I keep dedicated dryfire mags, but CZ mags are cheap. I'd recommend it if you can.
  11. I need to buy new luggage, regardless, to fly with firearms for this year's Nationals. A friend recommend the 1615 as a convenient option that - in theory - also prevents TSA from messing with any of my gear after the initial check-in. Has anybody used one of these for flying to matches? If so, can you provide any additional information with regards to the convenience of flying with all of your stuff to matches?
  12. 135.1, according to Practiscore
  13. Shot around 400 rounds of 150g Syntech at Area 5 this past weekend. Had no issues. But, I did notice scuffs in the coating near the base of the shoulder where the bullets met the rifling.

    Faster reloading?

    To offer another over-simplified answer: set your PAR time to 1.0s and get to work.

    10k thru the shadow 2/ breakdown?

    I only do a scheduled detail strip once per year, at the end of the season (roughly 25-30k for the practice gun). Other than springs, I'm pretty lazy about replacing parts if they're not broken. Examine your extractor, firing pin, and slide stop for signs of failure. Beyond that, just clean it well, lube it up, and return to shooting. I break out some picks to really dig out any built up carbon during the deep clean.
