  1. I've had good luck with their stuff . Particularly the tungsten guide rods. They make an extra-large model that has done well so far on G4 G17.
  2. During the Obama years, a lot of us learned the hard way how supplies could dry up. I remember having friends who couldn't shoot matches because they had trouble finding enough ammo or primers/powder. Since then, I've never let myself drop below 15k primers and 12lbs or so of powder. Worried this year could be a wild ride.
  3. Kuhl pants are awesome. I find myself wearing Kuhl Renegades all the time now. Cargo pants. Lightweight. Fast drying. The legs can be removed to turn them into shorts. Once I found these, I stopped wearing various 511s, etc.
  4. I'll toss another vote in for the Johnny Glock. I'll admit it was a difficult purchase to make - based on the price. I often say that I have spent money on a lot of stupid things during my time in USPSA. This wasn't one of them. It's just a great trigger.
  5. I can definitely see the advantage of that. So annoying having to fix those when that happens. That was actually the source of my kaboom.
  6. Same here. If I were ever going to shoot a 9mm 1911 in competition, this would be my combo. I've had 3 over the years - each of them ultra reliable.
  7. One of my favorite shows right now. Such a great job with the characters. Took me a while to figure out that Homelander was the same guy who played Lucas Hood in Banshee. Just a fantastic, twisted take on super heroes.
  8. I hate these threads. I was in the reloading room this evening, wondering if I should upgrade my 650 to a 750. Love the 650, but I have had my share of issues with the primer system. Still have a hole in the ceiling above the press from my one primer kaboom. Just one more thing to spend money on, I guess.
  9. Had horrible luck with DPPs. But I've put around 6k rounds on my primary SRO. Not a hiccup yet.

    I'm now 5-6k rounds on my SRO (on a Glock 17). Still working great. By this time I'd already sent my DDPs back at least three times. There are those who love the DPP - maybe I just got unlucky with mine.
  11. Using a Glock 17 for CO right now. For carry, I use a couple options: The Springfield Hellcat (still waiting on a Shield RMSc optic for it) and a tiny Seecamp in 32 acp when I want something tiny.
  12. Went with the 17. Is there really any advantage to a 34 over a 17 in CO?
  13. I've been using the SRO for a few months now. So far, I can find no reason not to like it. Which is saying a lot more than I could about my DPPs. But hell, with any of these, you can find someone who's had a problem of some sort.
  14. With my Gen 4, I added this tungsten guide rod: https://www.glockstore.com/Pure-Tungsten-Guide-Rod-for-Gen4-5-Glocks and the Thug plug. I had to modify it to make it work with the +2 and +4 backstraps. I like the extra weight. Still, it doesn't shoot as flat as my former CZ guns.

    Same here. Zero issues, so far, with my SRO. Had many issues with my DPPs.
