  1. So, I tried a dovetail plate on my SP-01. I found that I had a hard time acquiring the dot because the sight was set so high. The plate was also a bit unstable. After struggling for 2 years, I went with a PPQ M5 match that has a milled slide and multiple plates included. I’m very happy with this setup.
  2. I really appreciate that you stuck around and helped out with the squad. Most people get angry and/or upset and storm off of the range.
  3. I turn mine off right before I holster, if I remember it. Otherwise, it’s easy to turn off in the holster.
  4. ok, I looked up the WSB on the USPSA site. Here's the relevant quote: engage T1-T4 with only two rounds each, make a mandatory reload using a magazine from the table only, then engage T1-T4 with only two rounds each. Reading it, it plainly says that only 8 rounds should be fired after the reload. So, my call would be 1 extra shot. under No other penalties. Before someone asks, no extra hits because the number of hits on targets don't exceed the total number specified for the stage. Bill Hayden
  5. Agreed. A good CRO keeps all of their hard cover in repair. When hard cover is hit, duct tape, paint or your favorite repair method is in order. That said, it can be a challenge at level 1 matches when the barrels are already pretty shot up.
  6. I’m abbreviating them as UMP in my designs....
  7. Get a router with a separate guest network. There are many on the market. The shooters get guest, which can be throttled. With staff and scoring devices on the private net. Should fix your problem.
  8. Well, I guess I’d better hold on to that 6 gallons of 40 that I was going to take to the recycler because nobody around here wants it! Might be a good investment!
  9. Many short grip pistols have grip extensions that slide onto the magazine. That’s how I would present it.
  10. For my local club, the match fee is cut in half ($5 instead of $10). We also get service hours counting towards our 16 hour obligation.
  11. We used these at the 2017 Iron Sights nationals. They worked pretty well in the Utah sun.
  12. No, it’s not an automatic reshoot. This is a case where you should have finished the stage and asked for calibration. As the RO, ive had this happen at a level 2 match. My response when the shooter looked at me and said it didn’t go down was ‘if you are finished.....’. Later at chrono, we found out that he was shooting sub minor ammo.
  13. It takes a LOT of shots to ‘wear out’ a barrel. Besides, if lead in the barrel is a problem, just cut the top off and empty it. It seems that this might be an excuse hiding as a reason.
