  1. Howdy, I'm running the Glockstore tungsten guide rod setup which comes with the factory springs, plus the Zev 4# striker spring. I've had no issues at all, but I'm also shooting Federal Syntech, which is awesome.
  2. I've spent a lot of time shooting and smithing on both the 1911 and on the Glock. It certainly is possible to reduce the length of pull on a Glock trigger. (See Johnny Glock) Will it ever be in the .020" range like on a tuned 1911? Not without some engineering. But to say that it's impossible is not true at all. My question isn't one of preference of the trigger pull, I think that's a given for most folks. The question is how would the perception of shooting and competing with a Glock change with a top shelf trigger?
  3. It was very, very gross. He was cool as a cucumber though. The rangemaster went with him to the ER because he was concerned about liability problems coming back on the range. That was honestly the last time I shot there.
  4. At a local IDPA match before I was shooting USPSA we had a guy draw, stick his off hand in front of the muzzle and put a clean .45 wadcutter hole directly through his hand. He immediately stopped, said I DQ myself, and then calmly looked through his hand down range with an "I'll be darn, I can see through my hand."
  5. Hey gents, I know I'm reviving an old thread here. What if you could have a 1911 style trigger on a Glock? How would that change things? I mean a straight pull, linear trigger that you could adjust pre and overtravel, and get to hang around 2-3 pounds. Thoughts?
  6. Physical therapy and a bunch of electro-stim therapy. Worked pretty well ultimately. I was able to rehab a partially torn LCL/PCL in about 6 months. Thankfully, I have a very solid doc who helped me get things on track.
  7. Thanks for the tips guys. I really don't want to blow up my knee any worse than it already is. Looks like I need to think about some yoga as part of my life.
  8. It's funny, I'm almost in the exact same position. I have shot semi-regularly over the last ten years, but not one match. Got really sick, changed careers, had 4 kids, and now I feel like I can dedicate myself to the sport again. That crazy thing called life.
  9. Hey Guys, I ended up tearing up my knee last year partially because of my lack of flexibility. I was wondering, what kind of stretching routine are you doing before a match? Thanks, Sid
  10. Put a penny or other coin on top of your slide. Pull the trigger. The coin should stay where it is. This helped me a lot with good trigger technique, movement shooting, etc.
  11. The flat back Cerakote is called Armor black if this doesn't work for you.
  12. Anyone have any experience with the JPoint or Shield RMS?
  13. If I have a bad match, I try to figure out what went wrong. I never just chalk it up to a bad day. Some random things I've learned. Get enough sleep the night before. Eat a big meal the night before. Show up much earlier than you think you need to. Clean my gun more than I think I should. Spend time in dry fire the morning of and at the range to get warmed up. Don't eat eggs for breakfast before a big match (yup, it's what you think). One of the biggest things I'll look at is my tempo. In my crap match, was I shooting too fast or too slow for what the stage gave me? Usually it's too fast. Was I thinking ahead? Did my stage plan just not work out and is there anything I could have done to help that. Had I never seen a type of target or never trained on one? All of those things contribute to a "bad match." You just have to identify them is all.
  14. I do agree with a lot of what is said. Classes and coaching from top shooters is a very good step. You can cut the learning curve tremendously. However, I would also be concerned about it being information overload. As with most things in life, consistency is key. Of course it isn't good to train bad habits, but we all go through a process of refining our techniques. Jake had a great example of that in his own reloads. Set a goal for a technique that is very reachable. 25 reloads without a single miss or bobble in 1.25-1.5 seconds. Take video and analyze where you can increase speed. Maybe it's getting your off hand to the mag quicker, or reducing head/shoulder/arm movement. But you have to study yourself to see what you think needs to improve. Then compare what you are doing to a GM shooter. Put the video side by side and analyze again. At that point you'll probably notice that there are a lot of things that need to change, and that's ok. Only make one change to your technique at a time.
  15. Spend some time focusing on a nice clean trigger pull. Dry fire on a light switch. Not the plate, but the actual switch. The sights shouldn't move off of that. Start within 5 feet and steadily move back until you are across the room. This will help with some confidence in the longer shots. Once you've got this down, add the draw stroke to it. My dry fire consistently has 25 draws, reloads, transitions, and trigger pull. These are then broken down further. The draw for instance: 5 hands up, 5 hands at sides, 5 drawing and moving forward, and 5 drawing while moving to the left and right (25 reps). I have each technique broken down like this. This set of reps is strictly my warm up. None of these are done with the timer. After I finish my warm up, then the timer comes out and I work on whatever specific techniques I have decided on that day.
