  1. Where are all these ranges that are closed? In SW OHIO all the ranges I know of are still open. Indoor ranges included. We just aren't holding any matches.
  2. I've used a Hiperfire 24C for 3+ years in mine with no issues thus far.
  3. I'll chime in. I've been running a Gen 2 MPX for over 3 years with nothing but plated 124 Rainier RN bullets & HS-6 powder. The only problems I've experienced were when I first bought my TTI extensions they were not shipping with XP springs and I was trying to use the factory 30 round springs. New XP springs fixed my Fail to Feed issues, and the gun has been running well ever since. Initially I thought a slower powder like HS6 with a good comp. was key to keeping the muzzle down. I blame 15+ years of shooting Open on that theory. But I recently tried shooting some TG loads
  4. Keep in mind that not every mag is created equal. They aren't made with a CNC machine. They are stamped pieces of sheet metal, that get welded together and smoothed back out again. That's a pretty rough process. I'm sure they have a GO/NOGO gauge they have to pass, but theres still gonna be some give & take. Yes I think MBX is made better than some, but that doesn't mean every single mag they make is exactly the same. I ordered 3 MBX mags to go with my HONCHO and 2 of them wouldn't drop free. But you just have to learn how to figure out where they're contacting the gun, and th
  5. Yes. HS6 & a 115 gr. PD JHP
  6. The truth is I've shot 38 Super & 38 Supercomp for roughly 12 years prior to trying a 9 major gun, so I've gotten used to a certain recoil impulse. And I obviously have all the equipment nessecery to load 38, so I've just been kinda easing into the 9 major setup. But yes the recoil is very similar. Is it exactly the same? That's up for debate. Allot of things go into the "feel" of recoil/impulse (bullet weight, powder type, spring setup, gun weight, shooter grip, etc.) But the way the HONCHO works with the linkless barrel makes it so soft, it almost doesn't even feel like it
  7. I like the KAK buffer tube adapter better. With the TTI adapter you have to remove the buffer tube to access the set screw if you wish to remove your stock at all. With the KAK adapter you simply remove the 2 or 3 thru-bolts and you can remove the whole stock assembly as one complete unit. It cost a couple dollars more than the TTI but it is a better design IMO. I'm not bashing TTI, as I love their other products, just not this one. YMMV
  8. Agreed. Maybe have a "Featured" list pinned to the top, but still list them chronologically down in the main list.
  9. I don't do it for skills training, although that's not a bad idea. Especially if you typically compete in a division with optics, but don't use an optic carry gun, etc. My carry gun has a laser grip, but since I don't normally compete with iron sights, I can see why shooting an iron.sight division once in a while could be good training. No I mostly just do it based on if I have enough ammo on hand to shoot whatever division, and how lazy I feel about loading more ammo that night before, or the morning of a local match. Sometimes I might have a gun at the gunsmith, or I haven't zer
  10. And where does muscle memory come from? Practice!
  11. Best to contact PT directly with questions 1 & 2. They are very responsive with questions via email at info@ptrinity.com. And to your 3rd question, I've had good luck with all kinds of mags... I mainly use old style SV mags in mine, but MBX mags are a great choice too since they are readily available, and generally pre-tuned, although sometimes you need to double check the feed lips, and I always change the guts out for Grams springs/followers. But I've also been able to get STIs gen 2 style mags to work in mine, although I don't have extensive data with the later, just ran a
  12. Paragunner, I shot this 5 shot group from a rest tonite at practice @ 25 yards. Gun is zero'd @ 15 yards so it's hitting a little high at this distance. For pistol, I prefer a 15 yard zero because in USPSA we generally shoot anywhere from 5-25 yards, so 15 is kinda like a happy medium. For me anyways.
  13. Back to the original question, "what is so special about Honcho barrel system?" The linkless barrel is the key component that makes it so special. The patent pending design to the locking block/barrel is what dampens all the recoil. The barrel only has to drop down a tiny bit to allow the slide to cycle, and the design of the locking block itself makes that cycling action very smooth. Seriously, I've had people shoot the .40 & think it was 9mm. And folks who shoot the 9MAJOR barrel ask if it's really MAJOR? The most impressive part is all of that is accomplished wi
  14. N105 is comparable, but only available in 1 pound cans, and sometimes hard to find, like all VV powders. I've tried AA7 and it's easy to find, cheap, and similar to 3n38. But it is a little dirtier.
