  1. I would guess with the number of DPP sold vs the number of DPP that have had issues, it doesn’t warrant changing. Just my thoughts. The military is the largest consumer of the DPP so who knows. Maybe the military doesn’t worry with fixing them and they just throw another on and go??
  2. I have about 40k in 9 major and 20k with SuperComp (or so) on my DPP and it looks a little ruff but never had one issue. I change the battery about once or twice a year and don’t play with the brightness adjustments, unless I’m shooting nationals @ universal shooting academy where you face the sun early morning or late afternoon. I started with the OG Delta Point and as soon as the DPP was available to civilians, I pick one up and never looked back. i am looking at the SRO but I still worry about every micro dots reliably. I guess I got lucky with the DPP I received and I might stay with what works...
  3. You can look at Nationals like 3 local matches with a few more stages than the regular locals. I would sit down as much as possible when your not resetting the stages or whatever. It makes a big difference on your feet and back after being on your feet day after day of just standing and walking. I was surprised at how many miles I actually walked over the 3.5 days of Nationals. Good luck and enjoy yourself. It’s a game so have fun with it.
  4. All things being equal I just move the target 5 to 6” higher on the sticks and saw a noticeable diff. Thanks gang.
  5. I have a 1” SS shaft mounted with 2 bearing blocks and the blocks are mounted 4” from center each side. I have 7.5lb plate weights and the rod they are mounted too below the pivot point. I’ll add a 2.5lb plate each time and see how it works out. Thanks
  6. I believe this might be the right place to ask my simple question. Typical swinger, to increase the swing speed, is it as easy as moving the counter weight or is more weight needed? I believe the total length/travel of the swing can be adjusted with moving the weight but I want a faster swinger. Thanks in advance.
  7. Fundamentals and where you notice you need to improve at matches. Try breaking each (reloading - draws - transitions, whatever you choose) action down into several small movements. Then work on the small movements till you fell like got it then start stringing them together.
  8. During the open match the same shooter, on the same stage, that happened. Only the shooter was still at the start of the stage when the RO yelled stop. I think everyone’s stomach dropped a bit. The wind blew one of the poppers down.
  9. ill Go back and listen before I quote the RO but it was something like, I saw it fall when he was shooting at it or,, shooting at them. .
  10. But now you’d be asking shooters to paint the steel that they haven’t even touched all day. That’s a whole BIG ASS can of worms around here. Start a post titled “you’re a sorry ass shooter/sportsman if”.
  11. So the CRO should have walked down and looked for hits on all that steel, just to make sure everyone saw what they think they had. It was been painted after each shooter.
  12. That one had to sting a little. I had my mag or pouch hit a table and move (out of compliance for SS) I engaged a popper, reset my belt THEN moved to the next position. I did received a procedural because I engaged a popper but maybe I should have been bumped to Open.
  13. Ahh, just shoot PCC and stand at one place and hose all you see. I thought that was the purpose of allowing anything goes in PCC? Apologies, , I digress...
  14. I seen some heightened discussions so I would think a good bit, If he knows how to argue without going all Anitfa. Cursing, getting in someone's face or goIng nuckin futs on an RO or anyone at a match, might get someone more then they originally had in mind. I would think after the MD was called and the argument continued he would be told to drop it or get the F off the range. Drive safe.
  15. https://www.facebook.com/groups/31472669314/wp/404263823492875/?ext=1569817088&hash=AeTUj3gcLs9f8K4A 7 minute 6 sec is the start of the run. If this link works. If not it’s on FB of the ‘19 USPSA Limited Nats live feed... Thanks gents
  16. I watch it again and one RO's from somewhere said he saw it, when the shooter was shooting It’s. The shooter has a great chance of winning (good guy) but this is at the Nationals, why didn’t this RO that saw it say STOP. I can’t see this going the same for me.
  17. 3 mini and 3 reg poppers, mini lined up behind the larger peppers on part of a med to long course. Shooter shoots 10 total rounds at the 6 poppers and 6 hits ring out. After the ULSC shooter tells the RO one of the mini poppers was already down. 3RO’s and one is a CRO but after 2 RO’s said they did NOT see the steel issue. What happens? Reshoot or because none of these RO’s saw the steel down, should the score and time stand? Important EDIT; one of the RO’s said he did see it but not until the shooter was shooting at it. Does an RO need to wait until after the shooter said the steel was down or does the RO need to call out the fallen steel issue as soon as the RO saw it? It didn’t look like thr RO was going to say anything until he heard what the shooter was saying and then of course he saw it when it was being shot at. 2 or 3 more shots to put the last of the steel down and the shooter still needed to finish on 2 paper target to end the stage. STOP was never said only Reshoot after the RO that was the farthest away walked up and said I noticed it when he was shooting at it.
  18. At 15yds I see the dot floating around the A-zone as I’m focused loosely on the A-zone of the target. 20yards and farther I’ll have a better or harder focus on the center of the A-zone. This will also tell me when the trigger break is clean or really, I’ll know if I jerked the trigger out the the A-zone. Try shooting a sub 2sec bill drill with mostly A’s from 15yds with the dot off, just point shooting. Try it, you might be surprised how much you don’t need the dot inside the 15yd mark. Good luck.
  19. Sounds good. I don’t blame you, it’s not like your paid or anything fir running the MBX mags. A little good customer service goes far in our small (by comparison) sport as will the bad. Good luck.
  20. Any chance of you double checking those mags with your ammo in a friends open gun and and his in your gun?? But if a few MBX mags run then 1 would think it’s in the mags. Maybe measure the mags feed lips on the mag that function well, then compare the measurements to the others and all (140, 155 & 170’s) the MBX should measure darn close but If not get to wackin’ those feed lip closer or opening them to meet the good mags measurements. I’m not sure that pinching them with a vise is the answer for adjusting the lips. It might be the easiest way and maybe I need to try the vise next time, IDK. Mag lips do NOT bend very easily. I cover the feed lips with a cloth and measure a lot. . Sorry if this has been stated before in a earlier post but good luck and I’m sure you will get things rockin along soon. Always Optimistic!!!
