  1. Unless you can achieve 100% Alpha’s in the same time (or faster) as the next shooter then it is the accuracy/speed potential of the other competitors that will determine if the concept is valid.
  2. Fill the 5G and pour into the 3G until 3G is full, two gallons left in 5G Empty the 3G Pour 5G into 3G, 3G now holds 2 gallons Fill 5G Pour 5G into 3G until full 5G now holds 4 gallons
  3. Judging by the number of still open slots, I bet quite a few people will be clock watching.
  4. I don’t think that technology ever really ‘peaks’, generally the innovation curve starts out very steep as new changes come in rapidly, over time it will start to level out and improvements will become smaller. Some competitors will dive into these small changes in the hope that it will give them an edge, but the changes are so insignificant that a little training with existing equipment will usually accomplish the same thing. The reduction in innovation is not going to end Open, but what will drive a stake through it is the cost.
  5. I think the consensus is that the factory recoil spring is too heavy for PF around 125-135.
  6. They said they were working on one... it might be worth your time to send them an email and get a status update.
  7. 18. +5 oz over listed weight, or 45oz whichever is greater.
  8. It does not make much sense. The name ‘Carry Optics’, implied a light-weight gun that would be carried for every day use. But that concept went out the window with the 140mm magazines and higher capacity. With all the other alterations that have been made to the division, removing the weight limit would seem to be a reasonable change to make. As long as the base gun is on the Production list then I think it should be good to go.
  9. For me the issue is not so much the drop safety but the lack of trigger safety. If any part of that trigger touches anything in the holster then the gun will discharge. With the original (and the Apex) trigger the trigger safety also must be pressed to discharge. Its possible to get around a 2lb trigger pull with the Q5, it would not take much to put a bullet down your leg with this setup.
  10. I used a couple of 1/4 - 5/8 hose clamps to each pen to add the weight. They could also replace the rubber ring to keep the pens at the correct height.
  11. I used to shoot Open and switched to a Prod Optics gun in 2014. I would never go back to Open, at almost 5K for an Open gun it’s hard to justify that kind of cost.
  12. I don’t think that Division activity is useful to determine the future success of divisions. The totals seem to indicate that many members are frequently swapping divisions and may be shooting 2-3 different guns in any given month. If members could only only pick one division then the overall popularity would likely be different. Activities in SS, L10 and Revolver are decreasing and I think that will continue moving forward. Personally, I think Open will decline soon. Top competitors will likely switch to factory guns (especially CO) with more sponsorship options, plus the increasing costs of Open will likely drive competitors to CO/PCC.
  13. I’ll give it a try when it gets here...
  14. I can only see your arms in your avatar, would you prefer one of these, instead ?
