Beyond it All

Beyond it All (9/11)

  1. Most people I've talked to who've gotten pretty good at this over time wish they'd sought out training sooner. If you stick with this for a few years and get decent at it you'll look back and say the same thing.
  2. I think that's kind of common. Buy a ton of gear and never end up using it because the focus is on the gear. The focus should just be on getting out there and shooting. I know a few guys who do pretty well with just a 320 and three 23 round mags a normal belt with two pouches and a basic kydex holster. Pretty much a IDPA rig less the fishing vest. The only real limitation with that set up is you and the time you're willing to invest in getting good.
  3. In CO you can fill your mags up, so 3 17's give you 51 rounds and the biggest stage you'll see is 32. So that should be fine. Good belts are better but I've shot matches with $10 belts from Walmart. Those Walmart belts wont last for ever, but they'll work. And it's not like your gun is all that heavy which will make it easier.
  4. The 320 is pretty popular set up for CO. You can add mag extensions at some point but starting off you'll be fine with 17's. You can run 140's in CO which hold about 23 rounds with spring and follower. So you'd be looking at a extra 50-60 bucks per mag to upgrade them. If you're trying to do it on the cheap I'd just get a holster and two mag pouches and call it a day. No reason someone can't be competitive at the local level with a set up like that.
  5. I'm new to this PCC thing, but that sounds pretty legit to me. Any idea about what you're splits are pulling as fast as you can? I'm still figuring out my set up, and learning the right technique. Doing doubles I can only run like 16-18 splits, I'd guess like 6" group. I'm going to the range later I'll try it to see for sure. I'd like to see the splits get to 15 or better and that group maybe halved. I think that would be good, but I've been more focused on transitions and movement. I'm finding splits are easier than with my handgun, but the movement and transitions to be harder and that's a much bigger chunk of time to worry about then cutting .05 off a split.
  6. I tried the lighter, then went to the heavier one for a stiffer reset. I wonder if some of the differenced is in trigger pull gauges. But mine never showed under 2. It might of been under 3 depending what set up I had at the time. Ultimately I decide I didn't like how the gun fit my hand and moved to a CZ.
  7. I got you know, he made it seem like it was just the action job and a AC trigger. I never had my 320 under 2 I don't think. I just ran a GG kit.
  8. I guess, of course his is 1.6# and most of my 1911's are more like 2.5#'s. Is just the feel really enough to make that much of a difference? I agree I like the way the 1911 trigger feels better than a striker fired gun, that doesn't mean it makes a difference on the clock. Either way you only need to apply 2lbs of force to the trigger with out moving the gun to hit your target. The only time the safety is on for 1911 is in the holster. I can think of a few AD's that have happened holstering, some where 1911's some where striker fired. The SAO where drawing and I think the striker fired where holstering, probably something getting in the trigger guard. Most result in a ambulance ride. Maybe it doesn't really matter but I think we should at least acknowledge we're running without safety's.
  9. Did you click the link? He literally linked you to exactly what you need to do.
  10. I wonder about these striker fired guns with almost no pre travel and sub 2lbs triggers and what they have for a safety. I know GG's wont put a pre travel adjustment on their trigger because they say you can disable one of the internal safety's. If someone had a 1911 with a 1.5 lbs trigger and no safety we'd all freak out even though that 1911 wont go off unless something touches the trigger. But a 320 with a 1.5 lbs trigger is clearly safe because magic that happens inside the gun where we can't see. Which will only let the gun go off if something hits the trigger. Kind of like the 1911. The other thing that comes to mind is at this point with so many striker fired guns capable of sub 2 lbs triggers, why don't we allow SAO is Prod/CO? There is virtually no difference anymore....That or maybe roll back some of the allowed modifications to a prod/co gun so there is a more substantial difference.
  11. You can change any small part now including the slide stop. If the new slide stop happens to have a huge ledge where you happen to place your thumb it's legal to do so. Does this make sense in a "production" division? Doesn't really matter now the box is open, there really isn't much you can't do in production at this point.
  12. Same, I find I shoot best with the dot reasonably low. It's rare I have my dot all the way up. I find that super bright dot scream "hey look at me".
  13. So can you not see the dot even on the brightest setting? Maybe look at the C-more slide ride, you can get that with a 16 MOA dot. It's not brighter but bigger maybe that'll help you see it.
  14. He sent another picture later and the surface is flat and only the edge of the curve on the barrel just contacts the frame. He shot a few mags through it like that and it already shows a little dent where the barrel contacts the VIS. I think the gun would eat itself as is, I believe he's now going to put a 22 lr upper on it and run it like that from now on.
  15. Someone asked me what this cut is. It's looks like a WN but not nearly as much meat in the frame as I'm used to seeing there. They are using a CP barrel in it and say it works flawlessly. I feel like this combination is going to lead to issues but I figured someone here would know better than me. Thoughts?
