    SC Level II match membership requirement

    I am for growing the sport also. But at a level 2 match the growth need to include membership AND participation. Just my opinion.

    T/C R22 Rifle

    I just ordered a PMACA chassis and I am looking hard at the R22 for the donor gun. I would keep the barrel and I like the integral receiver rail, receiver-mounted peep sight, and rear clean out hole in receiver. They are $329 locally so price is right.

    SC Level II match membership requirement

    Serious. I am out west, we do not have a shortage of shooters. To me, level 1 is for casual lookie loos, newbies, etc. Level 2 and up, pony up, commit, or go do something else. Just my view.

    SC Level II match membership requirement

    Bingo. Well stated. The OP's post struck me the same way. I don't want to pay dues, paint targets, and wait my turn behind your friends who are too cheap to pay the dues. They can go play golf. Yeah, yeah, new shooters ... we do not need them.

    Shooting First in squad....

    Seriously? This level of minutiae is kind of surprising. Just shoot when it is your turn. It ain't that difficult. Lol. Said in jest and love, brother!

    Getting DQed. A lot.

    You are a high strung person. You have convinced yourself that you are not, but your description of yourself says otherwise. Learn to relax. I think that is all you need. You are relaxed at club matches and have no issue. The only variable you stated is your mindset at majors v. Minors. Your mindset is getting you into trouble at majors. You go there to WIN and as a result, can't even finish the match. Learn to internalize that relaxed equals WIN.

    2011 rimfire pistols

    I have two dedicated 2011s with Marvel Unit 1s and one dedicated 2011 with a Nelson unit. I think I am running #18 or #19 mainsprings. I have #9 recoil springs, I think. I use the slideglide lube for rimfires on all of them. I use it sparingly. I shoot MiniMag, Aguila SE HV, Armscor HVHP, and a bunch of other high velocity ammo out of them. The Armscor is particularly hot and runs the comps well.

    2011 rimfire pistols

    OMG, yes! I have a Marvel Unit 1 with the aluminum Marvel comp and a Vortex Venom MRD with their Weaver mount. STI polymer grip with large aluminum magwell, polymer MSH. Aluminum *thumb rest [generic]*. The whole thing weighs less than 2lbs.
  11. RFRO/RFPO. I love the rimfire guns. They are the coolest and they are the fastest. Every time I try to shoot something else, I can't bring myself to leave the 22s at home!

    2011 rimfire pistols

    Your 2011 22lr must be on a steel frame. I have three on aluminum frames and they are very snappy, and VERY responsive to grip pressure, which is what I require in any pistol for any form of action shooting.

    Which Optic for Rimfire Rifle?

    I run a Venom on one of my 2011 rimfires, a Viper on the other, and Vipers on both of my rimfire rifles. All are 6MOA dots, I think. The Venom is fine but it has more features than are needed for this game. The auto brightness control is undesireable as you will set the brightness where you want it the start of each string. For this reason, I prefer the Vipers. Also, the Vipers have larger control buttons, which makes them easier to adjust. Regarding dots, larger is better is common advice. I find 6 MOA to be just fine. I have tried 10MOA, that was fine also, but no better than 6MOA for me. Brightness is very important to me. If it is bright, the dot size is a distant second concern for me.
  14. I am attending nationals in Frostproof, FL. I was told that shipping my ammo ahead is the way to do it. Can someone point me to any info. Online about shipping ammo to USA Shooting Academy for nationals. Rules, procedures, address, etc. Thank you.
  15. i am Black and I shoot all kinds of matches. I have for 20 years. smallbore benchrest, smallbore, high power, military, and cast bullet silhouette, USPSA, IDPA, GLOCK matches, steel challenge, bullseye, airpistol silhouette, paintball, etc. I got started in each and every discipline by reading about it, buying the gear, finding a match and showing up. I have introduced several black people to various types of formal competitive shooting. However, I only know a few who stuck with competitive shooting and it is normal in my area to have only one or two Black shooters at a club USPSA match of 100+ shooters. People spend their time and money how they like is all I can figure. The saying "do you" applies.
