  1. Dammit, wish I saw this, earlier. I JUST put in an order for one. I waited a while because it was so expensive (to me).
  2. Decided to buy one. Thoughts?
  3. Ah, yes. 33 is young. GM in a year is not rare at your age, AT ALL. hope that serves as encouragement! Also there are many paper GMs as all you have to do is practice the classifiers over and over again and many pay to reshoot them at a match, itself. So, you have a LOT of leeway
  4. Depends on what you define as top. JJ and Eric started as kids. Some have insane natural ability and might not need the early age advantage, but of you speak to sports trainers, they might tell you it has its perks. It all depends. If you will only play if you can get to the top, you are probably missing most of the fun staring at the sky.
  5. Thank you for this input. Ive always used sjc's; I got an APA LB a while back and was very impressed; I then noticed their baffle designs were akin to that of sjc's... I have not seen that design anywhere else on any other brake. I found that the sjc apples to apples shot softer than the LB. However, with lightweight parts in my AR and a midlength gas, some snappier is to be expected vs another heavier build. Further/more importantly, less movement far outweights softness of felt recoil. Ill be trying out this brake when I get a chance.
  6. Im awaiting feedback from an sjc user...
  7. Not sure any DQ can top 24 mikes in 4 stages.... haha.. that is insane. These stories are amazing and appreciated.
  8. Thank you for this insight! My club didnt have one but that is pretty neat.
  9. Well... I mean either way, it's fun to have options. Close hoser targets? Yes pls. Far targets? Yes pls. In between the two distances? Yes, pls.
  10. Disagree with yall on this. Do any of yall cc your rifle or pcc? There are practical reasons to have a 50yd target at a match. Some people live on big properties and some might take a 50yd shot. Good guys that are CIV have gotten into justified gunfights at 30yd to beyond 50yds. The LE couldnt hit the bad guys, but the CIV did. If you need references, you can google. Bottom line, it has happened, it isnt that odd, and 99% of people do not cc a long gun or carbine. The frequency at which these longer targets turn up in matches (almost never) is darn fair. Just because you can, doesn't mean you always should. But sometimes, you need to.
  11. Every CZ I have has a tighter chamber than any Glock I have (I dont care for aftermarket "match" bbls, my glocks have factory bbls). So my experience mirrors yours. CZ wont shoot it? Will go bang in the glock.
  12. Alright, ya'll, I tried Redbreast 12yr! They had it for $50 at the Twin Liquors dollar sale, which was suprisingly lower than Total Wine.. and a nice deal. I broke it open with 2 of my buddies (1 of whom picked it up for me because I was at a night match and couldn't make it in time for the Saturday/lastday sale!) and we enjoyed it. I am definitely more of a fan of bourbon and not so much Scotch, but I still really liked it! The one scotch I make exception for is the JW Blue bottle (was a gift! I don't believe any liquor is worth hundreds of dollars; I've tried Pappy, etc.), I actually really like it. The rest are too... peaty/salty for me. Thanks for the rec, ya'll!
  13. That is so freakin cool! I really cherish stuff like that. Not so much accolades, but stuff like your pin and "Safest shooter award" vs "You won CO div".
  14. Hahaha I feel lik we all say the same things... "go sign up" "But Ive never shot a ma..." "Cool, go sign up" *afterwards* "Im so glad I did that!" AND you were on a squad with GMs and Ms and didnt DQ! It is actually counterintuitive; their experience would have let the guide you away from DQing yourself (I hope!). But LEZBEHONEST you knew what your subconscious was doing by even HAVING holster at the range near a match... haha
