  1. I’ve been running some longshot out of my 38sc. I really prefer the 3n38 it was a lot smoother. It was just hard to come by and more money.
  2. I was a little late to the game. I didn’t restock last year. I ordered half of the bullets I was hoping to shoot this year. With any luck I didn’t miss the boat all the way.
  3. I’m also one of the lucky ones. Dominate left eye with a dominant right hand. I can’t find any issues with using my strong hand with a pistol. I was younger when we found it so I swapped to left hand for Long guns. It’s actually really nice for week hand reloads because my weak hand when shooting left handed is my dominant hand. It’s also kinda nice running a right handed shotgun if there’s any issues it gives me a better line of sight for clearing. Watch out though with the backwards safety’s it’s almost resulted in a Dq you’ve gotta explain the safety was reveresed.
  4. Another vote for Matt Mclearn great work and great customer service.
  5. I'd like to hear who said this too if you would pm me please. I've got 2 170's and 4 140's I tend to use the 170's the most. I like the reloads with them over the 140's. never have had reliability issues with either and I like more bullets.
  6. Come on over to the dark side open is a blast. Best of luck if you make the jump!!
  7. The DQ is a tough one. I pushed a little to hard at a major match this year and got myself dq'd due to a training failure on my part. I need to make it clearer during movement with long guns. I hope you can get some training in and try and correct the issue and get back to a great sport. If a break is what you need then when you come back you can refocus slow down and stay safe till your ready to run full speed. Good luck and I hope things go smoother next match.
  8. firebird has one out with a lower they build in house it's aluminum and has pins to disassemble like an ar and an upper but I'm not sure if there are any original akdal parts in it.
  9. I made a plate for my els belt so I could use the qls. I beleive you can also drill the belt or the qls female plate. My plate has made my holster stick out more then I like and I'll be making changes. The qls has more hold and I prefer it for my holster.
  10. Mine shoots really soft and really flat the trigger is silky smooth. I can't say I've shot any of the other popular open guns. I had an old caspian and then went to a McLearn and I love it I wouldn't trade mine for anything.
  11. I agree. His workmanship is amazing and the guns just flat shoots!!!!!
  12. When I ordered my new gun two years ago I was open to suggestions not having a lot of open guns to shoot and try I ended up picking one I'd had a 38 super. The gunsmith recommended 38 sc and I love the way it shoots. However I've never shot 9 major. My next gun will be a 38sc because I love the way mine shoots now.
  13. What a can of worms. I have an M2i custom by Matt McLearn and it's a dream to shoot absolutely love it. It's got very refined lines and styling cuts it's not the wildest looking open gun but it shoots really nice and Matt was a wonder to work with. To be fair I haven't shot many of the other varieties if you get the chance take it everyone's different.
  14. Starline brass has been performing great for me
  15. I've got both a corvette and a rolling thunder. My preference is towards the rolling thunder due to the noise of the corvette it's flat out loud. However it does shoot soft.
