    PCC laser on target at start

    you can pretty much make up rules at a level 1 match, as long as you state a start position on a piece of paper for each stage. (written stage description) for all divisions then you can take out the gaming of a stage. easiest way to fix PCC is to make the start position aiming at a clay pigeon on the floor in front of the starting area or put a orange shooting paster on a wall and have them aim the barrel in that direction with butt on hip.

    How much better are Titanium Cylinders when action tuning?

    you can get a great trigger with the Ti cylinders, but my experience with my 627-5 38/357 has been 3 cylinders that flame flame cut, especially when you get split cases, they also have what look like erosion where the bullet initially pushes out of the case. I've since went back to the steel cylinder. On my 4" and 6" 625, I've no issues with both Ti cylinders, the cylinders look the same as when I installed them.

    May have found P18.9 Pro Custom mags

    MBX extreme sells para mags. based of STI/SV mag bodies.. very pricy, very much worth the $. My 140mm 40 cal will hold 21. the 140mm 9mm will hold 24 rounds.
  5. we use to have a tweeker who would hide in the hill by are range and when the bay was empty, he would go out there and pickup all the brass and aluminum cases and pick the lead out of the berm to go and well to the recyclers.

    8 shot is how much better?

    on a properly set up match, the only advantage that a 8 will have is on a steel stage in ICORE. This was with the previous rule book and with new rule book, the 6 shots and classic divisions got hung out to dry. no more 6 shot neutral arrays. I will shoot my 8 shot as a 6 shot on paper with the benefit of having 2 extra shots to make up a B or a C shot. Angus Hobdell won Limited division many years ago at a IRC with a 625, so the 6 shot is competitive, but with the old rule book. In USPSA, a 6 shot is standing reload at every array. They will set up the stages with a 8 round minimum for the single stake major guns and we just happen to benefit with a 627 or 929 for a level 2 match or above. For a local or leval 1 match, they can set up 10 rounds in one shooting positions and you will have to just go with the flow.

    Stupid Question: Moving across States

    go to home depot and buy a greenlee job box, one big enough to hold everything, also get a set of coasters to move it easy. lock it up and don't tell them what is in it. let them assume it is tools.

    Impossible Mag Release

    I just recently found out on my dawson extended mag release that if the end of the spring is clocked just wrong, that it will bind up when pressing the release. The end of the spring will actually dig into the frame. just take it out and rotate the spring 180 degrees and see if it stops hanging up.
  9. check the sub plate bolts to see of one hasn't loosened. run the ram up and they are a tapered allen bolts. mine have loosened In the past. what I do is remove them, clean the holes and threads with contact cleaner and them use red Loctite to hold them in.

    Warning Federal 115gr should not be used in a 929

    now you know why you shouldn't use a factory loaded taper crimped round in a revolver, aka kinetic bullet puller. I use a lot of adjustment in my 38 super 627-4 and I don't care if the bullet is deformed, they don't pull after I crimp them.

    Why are moon clips considered "fragile"

    magazines can be just as fragile when stepped on as a moonclip, but ours go straight into the trash. a couple years ago at the area 2, a limited shooter on our squad stepped on his mag while shooting stage 2 and at crono he presented that very mag for the tech inspection. the mag didn't fit the length gauge and he got bumped to open.

    What's the best way to clean a stainless cylinder?

    for the chambers, I use a .40 cal stainless brush on my Milwaukie drill and for the outside of cylinder, I use butch's bore shine and a stainless steel brush. on the bore, if I have been using lead, then I will dip it in a 50/50 mix of peroxide and white vinegar for about 1 hour, do a brushing with a 38 cal stainless brush and spray the whole thing down with contact cleaner.

    IRC 2018 and 2019

    many years ago at a match in Tucson, I was the revo division winner any myself and the open and limited division winners were the in the last 10 people who where drawn in a random match, with me being dead last. Random draw match suck, period. I will not stay for the drawing. Why don't you lower the price of the match if we don't stay for the drawing? one of the best matches that I love, because you get to shoot a top notch, test your skills match is the western state revolver match. Low entry fee, great stages and no trophies or prizes.

    One mistake I hope I never make again.

    never let me down so far. I don't use range brass. only R-P for my super, federal for my 40 and 9mm and 38 special. I've only used it for suspected squb loads. it's not that hard to narrow down the suspected, then pull 10 instead of 100. I would be easier to switch to a powder that requires almost full capacity to load for what you are doing than a powder that can easily take two charges and never notice that it happened, try ramshop true blue, you would never be able to load a double with that powder.

    One mistake I hope I never make again.

    the times that I have done a double, I will load a bullet, zero it on my electronic scale and then put the loaded bullets on it one at time and find the one that is + whatever your charge is. never let me down.
