  1. just had a cancellation so we now have one spot open in the Fundamentals class on 24/25 April 2021 at the Port Malabar Rifle & Pistol Club in Malabar, FL. see Ben's website for details & email me if interested ..... $375 Ken
  2. as many of you know, last spring I cracked the slide on my STI SteelMaster while training with Ben Stoeger. I spent a few months unsuccessfully trying to source a new slide and after a while thought I might just have a $3,500 paperweight. Finally decided to contact STI (now Staccato Guns) looking to see if they knew where I could find a slide. To my surprise they said I should fill out a warranty claim instead which I did. a couple of days later I got a notice that I should send in my gun for warranty repair -- nice! after about 5 weeks I called to check on the status and was r
  3. thx guys for recommending my podcast!
  4. There's no perfect place for this but I'll post it here & in the 'other shooting sports' sub forum so if it gets any traction the mods can combine them .... So, we have multiple , individual action shooting sports: USPSA, IDPA, Steel Challenge, Bianchi Cup, 3-gun. they are all different in some respect, have theiur loyal followers & detractors but the one thing they do all have in common is that they are 'Action Shooting' sports -- to excel at any of them you must master the ability to shoot accurately at speed. Given this, I think a great way to grow all the sports woul

  6. I don’t mind you saying you disagree with me, but please get your facts straight when you make claims about ME personally ... thank-you.
  7. Speed comes from being relaxed as tense muscles cannot move as fast as when they are relaxed. If you have tension in your shoulders the only way to go fast is to muscle the gun which is not good. remember, you shoot with your hands and you must learn to crush the gun with your hands and relax everything else. also, are you looking at your first target with the gun pointed at the start flag or are you looking at the start flag through your sights? if the latter, that is a major reason for your 'slowness' because at the start signal your brain doesn't know where you want to end up (you're no
  8. your thinking is backwards ... faster times are MUCH harder to achieve than slower times. look at RFPO as compared to open, then pick up a rimfire gun and try to make those times. that being said, if you are a true GM in one division, with a little bit of work you should be able to make GM in others
  9. what gun you shoot it irrelevant to your competition strategy (ie - stage shooting order). The items you mention as rationale for using different shoot order are easily over come with training. you don't need to change shooting order, you need to up your training
  10. yep, Hunters Gold. They are photocromatic and change with conditions. no more changing glasses as conditions change
  11. when it comes to selecting a competition firearm there is only one feature that is mandatory, a couple that are very important and the rest are just personal preference. The gun must be 100% reliable. Even one hiccup out of 200 is unacceptable ( without m/u shots you only need 195 rds for a match) Important things are that the gun fit your hands correctly so that your trigger finger fits correctly on the trigger. I bought a $350 Browning Buckmark when i decided to shoot SC full-time and replaced the barrel & grips with TacSol parts, added a C-more and never lo
  12. gun is now running without issue ... I'll look into those open gas plugs in the mean time, thx!
  13. Ok, 99% sure what the issue was ... took the gun apart and the gas tappit was basically frozen in the gas port took a soaking in Hopes 9 & a mallet and punch to dislodge ... its currently on my garage floor somewhere luckily I have a spare. Just don’t remember that many rods thru teh gun since teh last time I took teh tappit out ...? One question, does the gas valve need to be disammbled too? Looks like you need some kind of ‘special wrench’ to screw off the face of it? cleaned it all reassembled & lubed - bolt closes freely when chargi
  14. Appreciate all the feedback guys & Im not ignoring anyone - just others things are taking priority these last few weeks - no shooting since march - can’t actually remember the last time I didn’t Shoot for 4 weeks straight ..... I’m going to check the gas port today, lube the bolt a little more on the outside and then try it tomorrow & report back ...
