  1. Based on the advice of the great folks at UniqueTek I tried their Ranch Product 45 ACP moonclips making certain that the smooth side of the clip was against the rim and the stamping curl was pointing towards the bullet end and it works great. Some of the clips were difficult to impossible to used if the clip was flipped the other way. Who knew? (Ok, probably all the Ranch Products fans on this thread). Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Ranch Product users, are your moon clips flat across the surface? Mine have a lip around all the edges as though the punching die may have been worn. The result is that they are effectively thicker than they should be. The TK Custom clips are smooth all the across the face of the clip without a lip on the edges. I filed the lip off of one of the clips but it was a pain. If your Ranch clips are smooth I will contact Ranch and see if there is something they can do. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. The moonclips that cause me problems came from UniqueTek. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. No problems with brass. I do use a BMT mooner/demooner because it’s way sooo cool! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I use nothing but TK Custom. I bought a large of inexpensive poorly stamped moonclips and they would bind the cylinder. No issues with the TK’s. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. I’m really tempted to get a new Python and see how it compares to my 625JM. All else fails, it would be a good excuse to get a Python. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. This is a great thread on the subject: https://forums.brianenos.com/topic/256201-powder-for-loading-45acp-in-revolver-idpa/ I relied on this info when I couldn’t find Clays Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. I switched from Clays to WST under 230 grain Blue Bullets. Federal primers, of course. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. I also have the third moonclip holder behind the holster, too. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. I have a 625JM and I use California Competition “Shoot the Moon” moonclip holders. I have two in front of my Bladetech holster. I use a leather gun belt. The best thing you can do chamfer the charge holes. I had TK Custom do mine. I did put a fiber optic front sight on not and a new rear blade. Also used a Jerry Miculek spring kit and since I have large hands I have X-frame Hogue rubber grips. https://www.brownells.com/shooting-accessories/speedloaders-accessories/moonclip-accessories/shoot-a-moon-clip-prod4147.aspx Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. I can’t wait to see how this turns out! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. There is shear entertainment value that can’t be matched by installing one of those. Good thing they give you spare springs and detents. It’s like they know Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. I’ve seen pictures of his CQB Elite and it has an adjustable rear. Does make me covet one but the price tag has me thinking Dan Wesson Pointman 9 instead. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Wilson CQB Elite Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. What do you think of your Trojan? I’m looking at DP’s version Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  16. You’re a fast learner! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  17. I’m not going to say how long it took me to figure that out but when I finally did it felt like an epiphany! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  18. I may have had too much time on my hands after I retired when I made this. Probably why I went back to work. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  20. Not legal. 8.1.8 Non-IDPA-Legal Features and Modifications for All Divisions The following features and modifications are not allowed in any division unless otherwise specifically allowed in the rulebook.

  21. I might consider the G45 MOS. I have a Gen 5 34 MOS and a Gen 5 19 MOS and shot both at an indoor GSSF match this winter and shot the 19 better. And the 34 had a red dot and the 19 had “iron” sights. The 19 actually had the adjustable rear from the 34. I’m really intrigued by the 45 MOS. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  22. I put the Dawson set on my Gen 5 34 MOS and they have come in handy when then the battery dies on my Leupold DPP. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  23. I totally agree with Ken6, shoot what you have first. At the two local IDPA clubs I shoot, some of the guys shoot their EDC guns. They have to unload when they first arrive and then they load back up when the match is complete. I’ve shot revolver, SSP, CO, CCP so far and will shoot BUG in an upcoming event. I really enjoy revolver the most, and wouldn’t have ever guessed that before I shot the first match ( I shot an M&P in SSP in my first match). Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  24. In IDPA 9mm 1911’s are in ESP and 45’s are in CDP (though 45’s can also shoot in ESP but are at a disadvantage due to scoring being identical for 45 or 9mm in ESP since it is scored by time/seconds added). USPSA has hit factors and scoring is different for major and minor calibers competing in Single Stack. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  25. Mike Seeklander won Nationals last year in ESP and the whole match with one. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
