Looks for Match

Looks for Match (2/11)

  1. Has anyone done a slide cut for an optic on the standard P365? If so, did you remove the old rear sight or cut in front of it. Which optic did you choose? Who did the work and were you happy with it.
  2. Who makes good steel plate racks, texas stars and moving target stands. I"m looking for a fast swinging target stand for USPSA practice and currently interested in R&R Racing Inc. Does anyone have knowledge of them and if they would work indoor as well as outdoor. randrrachingonline.com
  3. I've always been one to shoot the gun you want to learn with, not get any gun and learn to shoot. You'll get habits (good and bad) depending on the gun so save up and get the CZ. Keep looking on the forum and you'll eventually find one you can afford. You can also get a non Shadow and customize it yourself and have a great gun. Recommend Cajun Gunwerks parts to get you close to a CZC Shadow.
  4. Titegroup is great for 9 minor. Easy to find, meters great, and good for various bullet weights and calibers. I also use it for .40 major loads.
  5. Outside of matches, weekly ,however I need to focus on practice that adds value and improvements. Just throwing lead down range only empties your pocket faster. Go in with a plan and measure improvement.
  6. Thank you! +1 for me... Actually I was hesitant to post on topics but found it interesting to hear other opinions. The ones I care about I comment, others are just fun to read.

  8. I'm trying to compile load data for Ramshot Silhouette. I've seen many threads that mention it so I thought I'd start one for Silhouette only to make it easier to follow. Please post your favorite Silhouette loads and make sure to include bullet type/mfg, weight, grains of powder, velocity and any other data you have like temperature as I've heard this powder is temp. sensitive. I'll be posting my first try next week with the following: 9mm (major) 7.8 grains Berry's 124g HBRN, heavy plated 1.16 OAL Velocity: tbd Temp: tbd (outdoor) Chrono Type: LabRadar Gun: CK 2011 - 5" with 2 popple holes and Bedell 3-Port (MaxComp) Titanium Compensator I really like how this powder meters and so far has been the most consistent of all powders I've used. Could be because it is so small and harder to clog but I like loading with it. We'll see what the chrono says. I'm worried about the temperature sensitivity however since I tend to cut it close at the chrono table.
  9. I may have another defective unit then. Thanks for all the reports.
  10. Remove the disconnector and install the trigger is all that is needed to convert from DA/SA to SA only. Should just drop in and you are done.
  11. For me it came natural from the start but as I get older I tend to squint if things start to double up. What is hard is moving to a scope and having to close one eye.
  12. It's all about technique and just watching to make sure there is no contact with the lens when you insert them. You may still get rubbing once they are in but it is typically in an area you can't see when you are wearing them. I've also tried using a lens cloth to shield them and that works pretty well but sometimes I don't have one available so I am just more conscious of what I'm doing.
  13. I agree and have just learned how to put the inserts in without scratching the lens coating.
  14. I was recently at A1 where there was a professional photographer with a drone taking great aerial shots. Pretty cool if you ask me. I can also see that it could get out of hand with amature pilots wanting to fly overhead when their buddies are shooting. What do you think? Can there be a place for drones at shooting competitions? What does IDPA, IPSC/USPSA think?
