  1. Tumble to get rid of manufacturing debris. Then run it through all the dies. If there is a defect and no primer hole (never seen this) but the press will lock up when the sizing due tries to push through the flash-hole.
  2. I would certainly expect that USPSA will continue to morph Carry Optics and Production into red-headed, step-children of every other division. So expect magwells to be announced for CO about 2 days before its Nationals, and another rule change at Christmas to allow for ported barrels. Frame mounted optics will follow before next Easter, and perhaps Compensators by summer-time.
  3. Agreed, though why not charge a fee but give a full refund if they pass the course. That’s an incentive to show up and to pass.
  4. Sounds like we need a ‘lumens’ check at chrono. If the flashlight falls below 100 lumens then its a DQ....? I’m starting to think this is all an elaborate April Fool’s day joke.
  5. A long time ago.... just sanded down the inside of the grips, try removing one grip at a time, it may only be binding on one of them.
  6. Correct; And some guns the scope can be milled very deeply into the slide, so shaving it may not be required.
  7. I think a standard IPSC/USPSA box would provide around 18 rounds in .40 and 23 in 9mm for iron-sights, and less with an optic. I may be wrong on that, going from memory.
  8. With all the changes to Production and Production Carry Optics neither division matches its original intent any more. Basically they are now both Modified divisions; Adding the Major/Minor options allows the competitor even more flexibility, and the trade-offs between optics and magazine capacity might make for some interesting decisions/competitions.
  9. They should just end CO and Production and bring back a variation of Modified, run it with irons and you can use a longer magazine, using an optic would reduce the length of magazine that will fit in the box. Double/Action or striker fired only 9mm for Minor, .40+ for Major Frame mounted, or slide mounted optic and/or iron sights Gun must fit in the box with empty magazine inserted (slide parallel to longest edge of the box). No weight limits, as long as it fits in the box do what you want. No IWB, this is a sport not tactical training (if you want to poin
  10. Video is definitely better when done from behind the competitor, as the viewer can see the shooter and the targets. For still shots I still maintain that a down-range camera is better and produces more marketable images. Mirrorless cameras are ideal for this as they are generally smaller than D-SLR’s and have silent shooting. The older D-SLR’s would sound like a mini-machine gun when taking rapid photos, and would clearly be a distraction.
  11. I would set my camera up while the RO was reading the written stage briefing so I did not interfere with anyone’s walk-through. I’d take photos of everyone on that squad. Then, if the stage was a good one (offering some good action shots) then I would leave it there and get some shots of the next squad too. This was only for stills; When I was doing the video stuff I would just follow the behind the RO/scorekeeper to get the footage. I’ve never put a video camera down-range, but the ShootingUSA guys used to do that for insert shots.
  12. USPSA has a policy concerning the use of images from stills/video. —-> 2018 Policy
  13. A tripod should not be placed inside the fault-lines as the competitor may find themselves in a position where they have to shoot around the camera in order to hit the targets. Also, some stages are laid out in such a way that there is nowhere to place the camera where it would not be hit by a bullet. From 2009-2014 I never had issues with RO’s preventing me from placing my camera down-range; That changed from 2017 onwards when I started getting pushback from some Range Officers who stated that the camera was a distraction to the competitors. None of the shooters ever c
  14. I’ll try to explain what I did when I was shooting Open/CO. In dry-fire, assume your normal two handed grip with the dot aligned to a target. Change your focus from the dot, and instead LOOK at where the gun is in relation to you, the place where the gun exists. Holster the gun, draw and transfer to your weak-hand, keeping your stance EXACTLY the same, PLACE the gun in the same space, if you do it right the dot will be aligned to the target. It’s what used to work for me.
  15. Its the same issue I had with the 140mm magazines in CO. Anyone wanting to remain competitive essentially had little choice but to break out the credit card to buy extended base-pads, longer springs and followers. For some, it turned a $35 magazine into $125 magazine. I would love to know exactly how many people are requesting all these changes.
