  1. I think there probably will be since C-More is building an RTS2 in a 10 MOA and with a little bit larger window it might work pretty well in high sunlight situations. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Word on the street is that they’ve been really trying to get one of them since they hosted Area 1 back in 2018 but I’m not sure what’s been going on since. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Whatever happened to that range that Lucas Oil built a couple years ago for that PCC match? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. I started with a Racemaster and am now using an Alpha X. It seems to work pretty good but I also like to tinker so I think I might jump on the Everglades bandwagon after seeing a couple at nationals. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. The way I learned, good or bad was to shoot a ton of speed focused drills (el prez, blake, etc.) and not worry as much about accuracy for a little while, to really try to push speed. When I feel like it's getting too sloppy (throwing mikes), I'd dial it back a little to get better hits, then once that speed felt comfortable with good hits every time I'd push it again. Also, distance change ups and really wide transitions in practice at speed helps a lot as well.
  6. I bought one of these (https://www.harborfreight.com/double-garage-screen-door-68310.html) on sale with a coupon and just cut it in half to make two of them. I just carry some cut up target sticks to roll it up in and as a little bit of weight on the ends that don't have an aluminium rod in it. They work well even in the wind.
  7. Budget? Have you seen Atlas has increased their prices 13% in 2 years? I love my chaos and I've been wanting to get another one to have my "old" one as my backup but I can't justify buying the exact same gun 2 years later for $800 more.
  8. I originally bought 1k of 147grn 9 major ammo from AA just to get shooting as soon I as the gun came in but as soon as I could get my press setup I started loading my own that works a lot better in my gun. I actually still have like 300 rnds of that ammo sitting in a box somewhere.
  9. I own a pair of Harris & Sons custom fit ear pro and I really like them but I just couldn't justify the extra $1300 they wanted to just add bluetooth to them. That upcharge is worse than the bluetooth option from Porsche in the early 2010s
  10. Just to add to what a few others are saying... a non climate controlled garage is a bad place to put it if you're worried about the "fire rating" because over time the expansion foam that seals the door if a fire happens, can rot because of too many large temperature swings. it might not be as big of an issue where there's higher humidity year round but here in the west it rarely gets over 50% humidity for most of the year.
  11. Cluster, ‘Preciate the advice and thanks for the reminder to get out of your head and be arrogant enough to just tell your self you’re going to crush it no matter what since you’ve put in the effort. I was having a rough match last weekend and thought I could get back on the rails on the classifier but I let the outside pressure of the people I was shooting with and the fact I just need a mid pack A class run to make M, just completely ruin my day.

    Romeo 3 low mount?

    You've probably seen it already but according to Springer's X5 plate mounts the STS2, Vortex Razor, and the Romeo 3 all share the same pattern, so I'm guessing that a low razor mount will work. Though the front of the dot will hang off the plate because of the extra meat it has in the front of the lens.
  13. I think your critiques are on par for what I noticed. The only thing that really stands out to me that you didn't mention is your left foot position after your 2nd reload engaging that back array. You have all of your weight on your right foot which possibly caused you to miss your 1st shot on steel and, I'm just guessing here out of the blue, have a D on the far right target in that same array. If you had both feet planted, you would have been a lot more stable to shoot those mid to longer range shots. Just from personal experience, not saying this is the only answer but, when I have to come into an array like that one I would rather plant my left foot on the fault line ( If i know that I'll put that as a detail in my stage plan) so I have a standard/comfortable shooting position. While that might feel a tad uncomfortable to shoot that far left target, it's a lot closer than the others and I'd rather be in the best/most stable to shoot good shots on the longer range stuff. Plus with your left foot being forward, having to move to the right can start sooner/be easier since your legs aren't crossed up.
  14. No I didn't stay with the same platform. I was shooting an XDM9 4.5" in production and then a Edge style 2011 in Limited and noticed that it was more difficult to swap between the two just because of the trigger profile/pull weight and the overall feel of the gun. I think overall the biggest key is just to become as comfortable as possible with whatever platform you decide on and for an Open gun why not buy a 9mm instead of 38SC? you could just shoot it minor with factory ammo and/or if you have the components/press setup load major or minor.
  15. When I got my Chaos a month or so ago Adam said he still liked Silhouette. Also another buddy recommended it as well for 9 Major. 9 Maj - 7.6grn Silhouette, 124 MG JHP, WSP, 1.165" oal, 171ish PF
