    MSA Sordin battery drain issue (EarPro)

    I tried 3 different pairs of the pro ears. All of them felt like my head was in a vise, and the sound was "tinny". I also watched a buddy's set die at a rainy (major!) match, so I wanted something a bit more substantial. The Sordins are way more comfortable and sound much better also. I still have a set of Peltor Tac Pros that I use indoors occasionally, but they're a bit bulky to run around shooting and working as a MD.

    MSA Sordin battery drain issue (EarPro)

    My Sordins (w/gel pads) have worked flawlessly indoors and out. I've never seen a need to double plug anywhere, and I'm around quite a few open shooters. As an MD and SO, I end up being next to a huge variety of shooters/guns, and the MSA Sordins just work. They're also far more comfortable on my wide melon than the pro ears I tried.

    How are you adapting to the new rules?

    It's the other way around for us. COs are welcome, but we're not recognizing PCCs. (yet?)

    How are you adapting to the new rules?

    It may be because both CO and PCC are still provisional divisions. They haven't yet been added to the regular rule book.

    How are you adapting to the new rules?

    Just...wow! Carry Optics IS a separate (provisional) division in IDPA, and has been for several months. I've competed in many local matches and even a sanctioned match in CO. Sorry you couldn't find the information you needed. It's right here: http://members.idpa.com/Content/Rules/a3nozfcz.rcs.pdf

    IDPA order of engagement very close steel

    We had a stage with this situation at our local IDPA match on Saturday. The two poppers were in front of each other and less than 3 feet apart. However, from the fault line/POC the poppers were slightly angled and the front popper was just outside of the rear one. Slicing the pie required this one to be engaged first.

    carry optics division is inclusive and specific, so those rules have to be followed. is non-inclusive meaning it's not a complete description of what is not allowed.

    carry optics division

    Not quite...aftermarket triggers are excluded in CO for one example.

    Gray vs. Burke?

    The GGI trigger IS legal for IDPA ESP division, but it's not allowed for SSP.

    Gray vs. Burke?

    I also sent my upgraded X5 to Robert Burke for his competition job. The trigger came back right at 4# and absolutely amazing. I have another X5 that was bought slightly used with a full GGI competition job. That one (not upgraded) arrived at Robert's shop early last week. I went with Robert mostly because of several recommendations from shooters that I knew, and the fact that the GGI triggers are not legal for IDPA SSP division. I needed to get a trigger job that used the factory Sig trigger unit. The X5 (IMO) is an perfect weapon for SSP class.

    Coated bullet recommendation for Sig P320

    BBIs work great! I'm using 124 and 135gr in mine.

    MSA Sordin Ear Protection Availability?

    I actually have a set of the Peltor Tactical Pros, and they're my go-to ears for indoor shooting or when I'm ROing. I was looking for something a little lighter for running around at outdoor matches.

    MSA Sordin Ear Protection Availability?

    Wow...seriously! I got the Pro Ears yesterday, and I'm thinking they were designed for a kid. There was little room for my ears in there with the 123 batteries, and the headband was really tight! Theyre going back today...
