  1. I agree trading it would probably be best, but if you want to use the optic you can always shoot it in open and if not you can shoot it in limited. Won't matter for a while either way regardless
  2. I'm pretty sure the 17L is not legal for carryops. You might want to check that before you go to a real match. It could be on the list now, but I know for a long time it was not
  3. I think it could be because many 9 mm revolvers are fitted with barrels that are the same as 38 special. So you end up having to run an oversized bullet to make a 9 mil accurate
  4. Sounds like a trigger control at speed problem, assuming that it still hits behind the dot in slow fire
  5. You mean those rules that favor power factor in divisions like open, limited 10, revolver.... Nobody pretends there's a choice, everyone knows there's a right answer and a wrong answer. There's just a few that want to change the rules to suit them to do what they want instead of buying the gun that fits within and takes advantage of the rules, or shooting a division that their gun is better suited to. So yes you can buy the wrong gun even if it still fits in the division PS don't get your panties in a wad because you asked a silly question LOL
  6. This is a silly question. Other than PCC all guns fit in open division, but if you bought a single stack to shoot in open division, you bought the wrong gun. If you buy 9 mm to shoot in limited division, you probably bought the wrong gun. If people can't figure that out they deserve what they get LOL
  7. It certainly isn't top-level GM's. It appears it's people who bought the wrong gun and now want to change the game to fit them
  8. I would toss a D spring in that Beretta and get to shooting
  9. Idk, looks like a probable 180 break to me. That is assuming that the 180 runs parallel to the back berm. Video is definitely at the wrong angle to make good call. Where the RO is, and especially if there is another RO to the timer RO's left, would be a better angle
  10. So, how do you sign your post? I tried but I can't find a place in my profile to add a signature line

    I worked a major a few weeks ago and was surprised by the lack of 2011 failures that I saw on my stage. I believe there were 2 the entire match. The guns generally considered reliable, production and co type da/sa and plastic, were the least reliable I saw, and the 320 was the biggest offender by a margin. Now that was just what I observed on one stage, I have no idea how these guns did on the rest of the match. And I also have no idea of the mods done to the guns. But just assuming that plastic/da/sa works and 2011 doesn't, is probably a bad idea
  12. The s#!tter is a great place to practice retention reloads. There is a strong deterrent to dropping mags, and there is a strong oder that adds match like stress. I ain't looking to see if someone takes there gun off in the s#!tter, but they better not be turning on their pcc dot in there....
  13. As a guy who shoots a lot of low cap, it's not wrong at all to have positions that it would be more desirable to shoot 11 plus rounds at one spot. Low-cap shooters just got to figure out a different way of doing things, that's part of the fun of low cap. Since divisions only compete against people in those same divisions, stage layout really doesn't matter too much in the end results. People who think it does are way too hung up on the overalls, and if you want to win the overalls you need to buy an open gun or a PCC. Because shooting production or single stack the odds of winning overall is pretty much out the window. You can however still when your division which is all we're trying to do anyway.
  14. Damn, lots of opinions here. I shoot mainly ss, Lim, and fixing to start co, though I tend to like SS the best. Just set mostly legal stages and I will be happy regardless. And I say mostly legal cause I don't really GAF anymore as long as it is not something completely stupid like you see in 3 gun sometimes. Keep it free style and get out of the way and let's shoot.
  15. Are the stages at the big match better and are you winning hoa at the smaller match? I would pick the match based on stage design. Say the big match was a hosefest and the little match was technical, where do you think you will learn more? Competition is relative as well. Just cause there are 80 shooters doesn't mean the % of good shooters is any higher. Then again the small match may suck. Mainly I wouldn't base where I shot on participation numbers alone

    How about redneck open? Might not be as polished and proper as a real open gun but at least it f****** works LOL
  17. That is hurtful SS and limited are my favorite divisions, but when shooting SS, I just look at the overalls cause that is all you got
  18. I don't think so. I been watching a plethora of USPSA videos lately and most seem to be: run here shot a few, run here shoot a few, etc. Basically forced positions and little shooting on the move that seems to suit production just fine. If anything imo stages and matches seem too set up for production/minor shooting to me
  19. You can even put them in front of your hip bones now
  20. This thread kinda got muddled. The op said the shooter "engaged" the targets so that means no DQ. But then it goes on to read like the shooter was just running between boxes and inadvertently lit one off, which would be a DQ. Wonder what actually happened. Clear descriptions in rule questions are very helpful

    LOL, this brought back memories. I started with a P97 mostly in L10 so i could get major and my son who was 9 at the time started with a P95. Those guns sucked, but they were what I had/could afford at the time. When I started I was looking strongly at shooting SASS but I would have needed 2 more guns, but I could shoot USPSA with one pistol, and had a legal one in the P97, so here we are all these years later

    I wonder how many USPSA members actually care about that, and how many USPSA members it actually would affect. Other than the very small percentage that goes to world shoots and ipsc events, I have a feeling that the vast majority of USPSA members do not care at all about ipsc

    I must be honest, I like the magwell idea LOL. As for the rest of it I don't care, if you're shooting minor and a slide Rider I don't think the rest of it matters too much
