  1. Excellent feedback all, thanks! I can't believe the cost of these things, was not expecting a $130 safety. I found a couple single sided shielded safeties for less but non are in stock Oh well I guess it's a small price to pay not to bleed all over your gun.
  2. I started shooting my single stack STI HEX 19111 yesterday after letting it sit in the safe for two years. I like the gun but I grip it so high that it rubs my right thumb and it eventually started bleeding. I was doing a few searches on here and found a few people mention the Ed Brown Grip Safety or shielded thumb safeties as a solution. If you have any experience with this issue please let me know what you did to fix the problem. Thanks!
  3. Trying to help out a couple of buddies figure out how many points they would need to get into next years nationals based on this years. If you got in please post up how many points you had and when you get to squad. For me it was on 7/18 with 19 points.
  4. Thanks all for the replies. Time to go shopping.
  5. Thanks for the responses. Gun is PC9108L18 or the standard TRP.
  6. I am getting ready to start shooting SS. I need to buy mags and I want the magazines that are the easiest to seat. I have read that Wilson ETMs and TRIPP Cobras are the easiest to seat, but I cannot find anyone who has recent experience with both. Any advice would be appreciated. Gun is a TRP and plan to run a dawson ICE in case that matters. Thanks, Mike
  7. I bought 12K Fiocchi's a wile back when I could not find anything else. They are softer than cci and seem to be inline with Winchester. I had no problem lighting them off in my tanfo with a 14lb hammer spring.
  8. May 3-4, 2019Location: 21374 Sanner's Lane Lexington Park, MD 20653https://practiscore.com/2019-maryland-idpa-championship/registerThe 2019 Maryland IDPA Championship is a Tier 4 match. 12 stages, about 175 rounds. Full day format, Friday or Saturday (staff shoots Friday).Once you register,you will receive an email about where to send match fee.Feel free to ask me any questions.Thanks,Mike
  9. Glad you liked it. I designed half of the stages.
  10. The 6 shots per position is no longer a rule, I think that disappeared in 2014. To be clear the parts of the article that discuss not giving penalties for not performing non shooting actions is not what I am referring to here. The first corner stone as quoted by jhgtyre is what I wanted to discuss. Over the years of having stages approved and interacting with IDPA it had always seemed that they wanted things easier but they sort of tip toed around it. Now they seem to not only want to encourage easier stages, but require it. I am curious if this is what the majority of shooters want or if like the 1 second per point down rule, this is just being forced upon us because IDPA.
  11. http://www.multibriefs.com/briefs/idpa/Cornerstones2019.pdf?fbclid=IwAR0XtxLVBAIrcX6KPGCiL_baRUYs4rgluRaecYkvDB7H1AvDfoJFsW-ZYx8 It seems IDPA wants MDs to design simple short stages with a low difficulty level. This is not the trend that most MDs have taken at least in my area on the East Coast. I'm curious to what kind of stages shooters want to see. Complex stages would be ones with movers, multiple steel targets, tight shots, lots of shooting positions or large round counts Simple stages would be ones with less or little of the above Let me know what you think.
  12. My large frame fits in the box with ease.

  14. Well I found the culprit, I have no one to blame but myself. Apparently the small plastic block became lodged in the powder drop and was causing all my issues for the last 15K rounds. Once I took it out and reinstalled it on the powder bar where it goes, everything works fine. Hopefully my stupidity helps someone in the future.
  15. Bench is extremely solid and flat 2.5" thick.
