  1. There are ranges that have “rules”. Last year’s Midwest PCC championship was at a club that has a “no center fire rifle” rule. The organizer had to get a special ruling from the board for the match to happen.
    If a club/range has a rule that is more restrictive than USPSA, they do have the recourse to ask any offender(s) to leave. For the range in this discussion, this might be the case.
    For my part, I don’t think I’d ever want to compete with an aiwb holster.

  2. From IP: It sounds like they are indeed utilizing the Tapatalk application, however, which is the root of the problem. We have seen in the past that Tapatalk has indeed caused a duplication of email notifications going out. (Even though the problem is not happening in Tapatalk.)
    Would you be able to provide a screenshot of both emails which are seen as duplicates? We can then confirm this is what happened in the past or a new issue with Tapatalk.
    Let me know if you can provide the requested screenshot, tkheard. 

    I’m seeing these in the Gmail app and Gmail webmail, not Tapatalk. Shoot me an email address via PM, and I’ll forward the emails. They will have all the information that way.

    IP asked:

    Could you please clarify what double notifications they are receiving? (e.g. email or inline notification?) Additionally, I noticed you're using Tapatalk, it is a very troublesome third party application. Are users who use Tapatalk the ones who encounter this duplication?

    I am seeing it in the Gmail web interface and on my phone and iPad in the Gmail app. I don't see any duplicates in Tapatalk at all.


  4. Star line short colt. TK to match; I went the stainless route. North Mountain 4-post carrier; stacks two. VV N320 behind 160gr Bayou RN; super soft and very cool, like in temperature.
    I changed the front sight gold bead to a fiber optic; easier for these old eyes to find.
    Hogue Big Butt grip fits me; YMMV.
    RaceMaster holster.
    You’ll love it.

  5. I have a new MPX 16” Gen 2 PCC. Took it to the range to dial, in the optic.

    Wow, it is super accurate. Took only a few of 5-shot groups to get it set.

    The LRBHO didn’t happen with the Syntech. It did with my CO loads. Is this normal for the Syntech, or do I need to run my MPX wetter than it is?

    It was really fun shooting it!


  6. I have a Gen 3 G17 SJC open gun that I built up from a frame.
    I built it because I wanted to try out open. I started out shooting minor and then, by changing recoil spring, shifted to major. I picked up a couple of 170mm mags from the classifieds and have one or two extended mags.

    It has run without issue. It is not the slickest, prettiest beast, but she’s reliable and shoots true. She’s become a safe queen and backup, giving way to a CK 2011

    Why did I switch? I never got used to the grip angle and I wanted something that fit my hands better.

    My G17 cost less than half of the CK. Mags are a whole other discussion. It was a good path for me. I called it “cheap open” before Carry Optics came along.

    That is definitely not correct. I get replies from my guy every day. They are now working in the ACP... One issue is - Since the forums are hosted in IP's cloud, they can not have FTP access.

    OK, I understand that you are being communicated with about the ticket. They have told you that they cannot duplicate the problem.


    Being an old software guy, I took that as a personal challenge. I created a new id on the forum with a different email address than the forum has. I loaded Tapatalk on an old iPad that belonged to by better half. Everything new, no leftover stuff from anything before. Guess what? I log into the BE Forum under the new id, go to the classifieds, and the topic list stops at the same place as the iPad I've been using all along.


    Want to take this offline? Fine by me. Feel free to PM and I'll share the particulars of the test scenario. I also stand by my offer to assist Tapatalk and/or Invision.

  8. Brian,

    If they can't reproduce the problem and we have many that can demonstrate it, they aren't trying very hard, or they're not playing with the same hardware/software environment that we are. I use tapatalk to access 11 forum groups. Your forum is the only one that exhibits this problem. What I initially reported, it seems, is only the tip of the iceberg and I don't think they're being straight with you. 

    That said, I will be more than happy to work with them to try to fix their code. It is clearly not perfect. 

  9. Brian, there’s something really funny about what tapatalk is doing.
    It used to be that we’d get the spinner, indicating that it was waiting for more data.
    Now, we don’t get the spinner at all. Seems like tapatalk thinks it’s got all of the data there is.
