  1. In perspective, that’s like gauging 1 case of ammo with a single.
  2. Not the freedom, the m3k with work. For me, the lifter mod is king. I went with the A5 for it and wouldn’t go back. Now that it can be done to the M2, that’s where I’d be. If it could be done to the m3k, that may be a different story.
  3. After plenty of “budget” purchases I’ve realized the best money savings is buying a gun that you won’t want to replace later. I’ve been through a 1100 comp master, 930 Jm, fn slp, and finally settled on the A5. Since M2’s can have the auto load added(I can’t count), I would probably get the M2 due to it working with a larger variety of ammo than the A5.

    g45 for CO?

    Barrel length is 4.02" on the 45. The 34 is 5.31". 1.29" is not insignificant. That is giving up almost 25% of barrel life compared to a 34. Accuracy won't be your problem but PF may. If you reload, throw some more powder in there and shoot. Equipment is rarely the limiting factor in competitive shooting.
  5. Is the rear sight centered or slightly off to the right? We were issued gen 5 17’s at work and all of the sights were slightly to the right and perfectly zero’d. If you had new sights installed and they were centered, that could be your problem. Otherwise, shooting left happens with right handed shooters if their trigger control is off.
  6. The problem with March is that their warranty is only good for 5 years and there isn’t a consistent person to send it to for repair. They have had at least 3 US distributors. They used to say that their warranty was 5 years due to law but they would cover anything. When the illumination went they wouldn’t even talk to me without the receipt showing the date. I like the spf March 1-10 but the company leaves a lot to be desired. Especially compared to Vortex.
  7. Another vote for the EGW gauge. I have two other 9mm gauges and EGW is the shortest by far. Nothing I use fits in it. It all works in the hundo and whatever brand single case gauge I have. I would say chuck the EGW but mine is still sitting on the shelf so who am I to judge.
  8. I lost the screw on nubs on the els belt and they were really great. Don’t know why I expected less but I was really pleased.
  9. It is used a lot because they have a ton out there and most are purchased by people using them hard. It’s probably the most used scope in 3gun and it picked Schmidt and Benders pocket to become the most used scope for PRS. You also hear about a bunch of warranty work that people wouldn’t normally be able to warranty from other companies such as dropping a rifle on the scope, backing a truck over the rifle, or over torquing rings and bending a tube. I have 4 scopes from their PST line, 2 Razors, a sparc, viper HD bino’s, and a razor spotting scope. All serve their intended purpose and all have been solid.
  10. For three gun, no. For cop stuff, no. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  11. Fair enough. I apologize if I came across as being angry with you or hating you. As I said to another poster, I think my side of this conversation would have come across better in person.
  12. No interest in DNROI and for sure no hate for Gary or anyone else. I'm never sure I am making my point in type and tend to over explain what I'm saying. Probably leads to me seeming more upset than I am. I think this conversation would have gone much better in person.
  13. My apologizes. I found a website with the current date that had you listed as the Area 5 director. On second look, I should have known it was old by looking at the style on the page. The hard cover was Area 6 and I believe it was 2007. You can say "that's been 12 years ago" but I'm trying to impress on you the lasting impression a call you make or back up makes on a shooter. It was his first Major match and the first words when I asked him if he knew you. Sending an email to DNROI weeks after the match does not get that shooter his match fee's, travel expense, time off work and whatever else they needed to get back to the call. Typed response does not always translate but I gathered a "you can't tell me what to do" attitude from your responses here. I still don't understand exactly what your reason for the call was. You typed a response that appears to cover both of these shooters. The single stack shooter I don't have enough knowledge to have an opinion one way or the other, but I suspect that your call was correct or if anything, not drastic enough. The Production shooter incident is specifically covered in the rules which is why I asked you what you were looking at to make the call and you said it had been hashed out and you weren't doing it again. That leaves me no choice than to assume that you based your call on what you remember as "for a specific reason" which is no where in In my opinion, if you are not sure that a shooter did something wrong or can argue the rule book from either side, they should get the benefit of the doubt until you are sure otherwise. It takes a pretty big leap to believe that 2 actions listed as examples are all inclusive. With your example of not resetting, you didn't dq the guy and then ask 3 weeks later. You gave him the benefit of the doubt, which I believe is the right thing to do(even though I think people that won't reset should be pepper sprayed, lol).
  14. I apologize for being a jackass and more so for being ill informed. I would appreciate it if you would correct my misinformation. Here or a PM works.
  15. How many times should DNROI rule on it. It was questioned years ago. They ruled on it and then they added to the rule book. Now with it written in black and white you still don't get it. I am not offering an opinion. I am telling you what was already ruled on. You are being stubborn and sticking to your guns despite several people pointing out that you are wrong. Maybe you guys are remembering a rule set from 2011. It sounds like all but 1 of your RM/RMI need retraining. This isn't the first time you ignored rule changes/clarification. You did the same thing after the ruling that sticks don't exist and you ruled a mike because "sticks are hard cover". This was done to a new shooter that didn't know to appeal your incorrect decision. You are the Area 5 director charged with being a RM at the Area 5 match. You owe the shooters better than this. I know you do a hard job for no pay but no one is forcing you to do it. If you lack the desire to stay current, pass the torch.
