    Shooting ICORE, IDPA, Steel Challenge, Flagler, Gainesville, Volusia, Orlando, Live Oak and anywhere else I can get to in a two hour drive.... which is about as much as this Super Senior wants to drive to shoot.

    Fishing is also fun.

    Backyard shooting range

    It's a PITA to have to carry a target stapler, paint for plates, rests for load accuracy testing, etc.... from the house to the range each time you want to shoot. I bought a 30-gallon plastic garbage can with a tight fitting lid... stuck in on the range... and put that stuff in it. A couple of cheap plastic lawn chairs make a nice place to set a gun bag, and other stuff down. Creature comforts are nice. A little thought can make your backyard range very comfortable. Mine is.

    Atlanta Arms - 100Gr. Steel Challenge

    I haven't shot them in a handgun, other than to check accuracy in my S&W 9mm CORE/RMR. From my Ruger PC they are doing about 1160... 116 PF. Excellent for Steel Challenge. Very reliable. Bayou Bullets makes a 105 coated slug with a good sized bearing surface. 3.3 grains N310, perfect function, and scary accurate! I'm talking 1-inch 25 yard bench rest groups with a 6 moa dot. Haven't chronoed it. No need. Just use for Steel Challenge. Totally reliable. I like the AA 100 grain... but the 105 Bayou is what I would use as the 'equivalent' handload.

    Steel Challenge Loads - 95 gr projectiles

    Bayou 105 9mm... scary accurate... can be loaded soft. Seems to feed more reliably that the shorter 95 RNs.
  4. For a right hand shooter with a dominant left eye, some have found that canting the gun/sights slightly towards their dominant left eye seems to help. It might be worth experimenting a bit with.

    Which Optic for Rimfire Rifle?

    There are very little G-Forces associated with a .22 rimfire rifle. Those G-Forces will tear up a slide mounted CO sight, but aren't really an issue here. The Vortex should work well... I would suggest 6 MOA over 3 MOA. The Burris FFIII (8 MOA) is another option, and not an expensive one if you shop the online retailers. Their lifetime warranty is very good. If it breaks, they replace it. Battery life is also excellent. I have one on my .22 pistol and am very happy after several years of use. You don't need to spend big bucks for a rimfire rifle red dot.

    Flying M 2000?

    Yep... the option was abandoned. Maybe they should change the name to "No Longer Optional But Speed Still Counts".

    Given the costs of 'just getting there' (gas, lodging, meals, etc.) The difference between a $100 entry fee and a $85 entry fee... or even a $65 entry fee... is a drop in the bucket. Anyone who goes to a match for the prize table could probably save a lot of bucks by just buying the stuff. But, with a $100 entry fee there should be a decent prize table... although that's not really the reason shooters attend a match of this type. BTDT... USPSA # A55647

    First SCSA match

    The PCCO scores you posted sound like upper B Class. You're not a long way from A. Join USPSA...get a member #... link to Steel Challenge home website, and you'll be able to track your progress. And, yes, Steel Challenge is a lot of fun! I shot RFPO today... might have made A Class. Already there in RFRO , and now need to work on PCCO (72% currently) and CO. Soooo many guns, and so few matches to enjoy them.

    Thoughts on over-travel stops...

    FWIW... I like to just 'roll the revo'. Once the trigger starts back for the first pull, it never stops moving. It's either moving back to trigger the shot, moving forward to reset, and moving back to trigger the next shot. If the trigger is smooth, and within a reasonable 6-8 pound DA pull... it just becomes a matter of timing and rhythm to get the trigger to break when the sights are on target. It needs to be practiced... transition drills are great for that. But, I never really feel a 'positive' trigger stop. The trigger doesn't stop moving once it's started. Just MHO.

    +1. They now make a 6 moa dot, and also offer a pictinny rail mount. I have one and love it. Simple controls, bright dot, and a wide window. I also wouldn't sneer at the RMR. I have two: one on a CORE (6,000+ rounds, no issues) and one on a PCC. They have worked well.
  11. Get plenty of draw time to get your wrist angle/presentation right to find the dot quickly. There is a difference between 'from the holster' and starting with the gun in your hand.

    Delta Point Pro ??

    Can't comment on the ROMEO 3. But several ROMEO1s (both 3 and the new 6 moa) have been prefect! There are also one of the most 'user friendly' reflex sights I've seen.... and I've played with a few.
  13. RE: handgun shooters. Is there anything wrong with the RO reminding new shooters about the 'Register' position of the trigger finger when holstering the gun?

    Patridge vs ramped Dawson sights

    The problem with Patridge sights from a leather holster is that you will occasionally have to rip a glob of leather off of the front sight after the draw. Ramps are more action pistol friendly... unless you are using a kydex holster with a generous sight channel.
  15. Hang on for their "Going Out Of Business" sale. I suspect it is coming.
