  1. No problem. I shoot thousands of the 147 FPs and have never noticed chips in the coating. Either way, at Minor velocities I'm not going to worry about leading. Happy shooting!
  2. Amen to this. From the original description the stage had a shoot-through, as constructed, and somebody probably missed it. That made the stage (probably) illegal, and there are fixes for that, including correcting it and (possibly) having previous competitors re-shoot it to dumping the stage. Both would be inconvenient, but this is how we learn, yes?
  3. Blue Bullets seems to have taken the time to assess your situation and respond. They said to go ahead and use certain ones and to pitch others, and they said why. I wouldn't think of their response as "unconcerned". Stuff happens...
  4. This ^^. Jeff Cooper's four rules, plus the safety rules of our our respective sports, are what keep us safe. Not "well, nobody got hurt when I did that" or "no problem, it wasn't loaded". (We hear too much of those last two, and folks who utter them are voicing a disregard for the reality of what we're doing, not to mention the laws of physics and Murphy's Law )
  5. We've seen this before, many times. Someone comes in to BE, poses a question that's related to an issue they had in a match or on the range, doesn't get the answer they want, and attacks those who responded honestly to what they actually read. It seemed like a fair question, at first, but much drama has ensued because of the directness of some of the answers and from escalating name-calling (drama queens? Really?). Please give some credit for the time that the members took to respond and the fact that many of them are very serious about both the sport and the safety of everyone
  6. Some folks seem to be dead set against dovetail mounts (reasons unclear), but I can't figure out why they'd not be viable. I've been shooting two guns with these for more than a year (one CZ Custom, one Henning), and both are running great. I can't see how cuts would make the gun (or me) a better shooter. Don't just toss this option off.
  7. That's okay. He won't be around long.
  8. The only game where they could shine is 3-gun tactical? Am I missing something here? Like USPSA & IPSC?
  9. Cutting the spring gives you a tradeoff, shorter free length and a higher spring rate (pounds per inch). So, you're compressing it less to the working height but at a higher rate. It sort of balances itself out, but the net change might be a smaller force at the working height, which is what you're looking for. Gotta watch out that you don't overstress the spring, though. (Folks cut recoil springs to get less force, but you have more leeway with those. )
  10. Yep. This has been revealed to be troll, pure and simple. Always comes back to "it's all about me" and "let me tell you what's wrong with you". He'll get this thread closed pretty soon, if history serves, so the OP might just ask the mods to lock it up.
  11. Keep an eye on that 13# CGW hammer spring. My 11.5# spring measures 11.5# at 1.625", but the 13# (blue) spring weighs in at a hefty 16.8#, and it made for a very strong DA pull (8.5#, on a gun that had been about 6# with the 11.5 spring, IIRC).
  12. There's never been anything wrong with a sport having rules. Without structure, we're just a bunch of people running around, doing whatever we want. And there's never been anything wrong with applying the established rules, equitably and equally. Safety, fairness, efficiency.
