    ELS Belt Cut Down / Ratchet Systems?

    I don't have a photo of mine handy, but I still run the velcro inner belt with the Carbon Arms Ratchet on my ELS belt. I just used Some black electrical tape over the ends that I cut down on my ELS belt. I used a piece over the width of the belt to cover the cut, then wrapped a couple of layers over the edges to keep it all together, it is holding up pretty well.

    holo 510C or MRO

    I run an MRO. There aren't many people running Holosun stuff at my local range. I have been hearing a lot of good things about them, and would love the opportunity to try one of the 510c's out though... It looks like a solid option. BUT, I love my MRO on my PCC. I was running a Primary Arms Micro, and the switch has mad a huge difference in my performance, at least on my end.

    40 lite CO

    You're right. I apologize, it's been 6 years since I shot in USPSA, and its challenging to keep up with all of those rules. Well, then it sounds like a trip to your local gun shop may be in order! Darn...

    MPX Mag Pouches??

    Webber tactical, Red Hill, Comptac, or Safariland are the brands I would look at. I have and have used Comptac and Safariland, and have several people I shoot reguralry with run the Webber and Red Hill.

    40 lite CO

    You'll get the typical capacity argument of 9 having the advantage over 40. It's all about what you want to do though, if you are just out having a good time and not really caring about where you place at the end of the day, go and shoot your 40. But if you're serious about competing and winning, I would look at shooting a 9, as you will get more capacity in the mag, and that may come in handy at some point. Maybe look at getting a 40 to 9 conversion barrel rather than a whole new gun?

    I run the K2, its what I run on all of my ARs. I prefer the grip angle over just about any other grip that I've tried. I don't necessarily run my stock very short, but I feel like the angle of the K2 gives me the best torque and control over the rifle, I can really pull the stock into my shoulder with it. And I've found that my wrist doesn't start hurting by the end of a match with the K2 like it would in the past running an MOE or similar grip.

    Slide mounted Dot

    As someone who is trying to decide between mounting an optic on my G17MOS slide or on a frame mount for a minor steel gun, what are some of the advantages and disadvantages you have found in your time behind a slide mounted dot?

    Texas star

    Challenge Targets or MGM would probably be my top choices if budget wasn't really an issue. They make great products that should last you quite a while.

    Finally got my belt setup

    It helps tremendously with the weight of multigun belts, especially when you are removing and adding different amounts of weight between different stages. How are you liking the safariland caddies?

    Custom made earplugs

    I would look around a little more. I was lucky enough to be invited to a study being done by the Audiology Department when I was in college. They let us make our own set with a DIY kit, then the audiologist did a set. They sent both sets off to be made, and when they returned they ran a bunch of tests to compare the two, and I got to keep the better set - which was obviously the set done by the audiologist. They were trying to require the manufacturers of the DIY kits to put warning labels on their packaging to warn about the possible dangers of the DIY kits not providing adequate hearing protection. The set I got to keep is what I run in 99% of my matches, some 5 years later.

    New Barrel Shopping

    I had almost the exact same load, if I'm recalling correctly, and I constantly had issues. I even had some issues with some factory loaded 115gr. Maybe they have altered their chambers to extend the free bore, I bought mine in early 2018. The issue I was having was the bullets getting to the rifling while still in the chamber - it never caused problems when firing, but clearing the last round at the end of a stage was always troublesome, and I began to feel a bit uneasy about popping off rounds that were already into the rifling, so I made the switch. I hope they have addressed the issue.

    New Barrel Shopping

    I believe that I've read somewhere that Faxon actually makes the KVP barrels, so you will have some of the same issues on hand loads that are loaded a bit longer. For just a bit more, you can go with a JP and not have to worry about that issue.
