  1. Sig X-Series weighted grip, Gray Gun competition trigger, and Gray Ghost Precision slide with a DeltaPoint Pro. Good setup. The GGP slide is light. That's something to consider if you are use to a heavier gun.
  2. In general, everyone should show up at setup time and help setup at least one stage. After that you can do a early walk through.
  3. These guys know what they are doing. Don’t know why they didn’t respond. Could try calling. If you have a chrono you could order some and check it.
  4. I agree with echo, the locking lug edges look like they are rolled. This should not be happening if the barrel is fitted properly. Contract the maker and they should correct it.
  5. Good point. When everything lines up, the dot just magically appears on the target. I will continue to run without irons. Thanks
  6. Charlie - I’ll double check my movement during gripping as you stated. I think it’s optimized but I will look closely. Thanks
  7. Thanks Charlie! Thanks SGT! That's what I thought. I just wanted to confirm. I've been dry fire practicing for a couple weeks now. I'm getting more consistent. The hardest part for me is getting the correct grip every time on the draw. The slightest grip variation shifts the location of the dot from the center and I still loose my dot completely sometime. And I'm finding it very difficult to get a consistent grip every time from the hands-above-shoulder position. Looks like I have another thousand or more reps to do to get my grip consistent.
  8. I found a few opinions posted but would like to hear more about the pros/cons of running cowitness sights in carry optics. I recently started in CO and I don't have any fixed sights installed. Do they help you acquire the dot faster? Anyone try with a front sight only? How often has your red dot failed during a match? Other considerations? I suspect they wont help and I should focus on perfecting my indexing. Thoughts?
  9. This was a focus during my class. We even held a mock arbitration.
  10. I suspect when more production ready CO 2011 guns are offered they will eventually be accepted.
  11. Handy work on my 1911. Grip was not aggressive enough so I shaped and masked, applied JB Weld and added 60/90 grit. Support hand doesn't move at all now. Real easy to do and I think it looks good.
  12. I'm trying some of the 4 prong springs in a couple competition guns. No preference yet. It does take a little more patience to get the 4 prong spring tuned.
  13. I call the timer the great mind eraser. But as a couple people pointed out, after you plan your stage, you have to burn it into your memory. Can’t stress that enough! Walk it over and over and visualize everything. You need to be able to close your eyes and visualize shooting the stage, knowing exactly where the targets are, what type of target, and what array is next. Do one final mental run through after make ready.
  14. D7 21.4 applies here. "Grip modifications such as, but not limited to, undercutting/smoothing the trigger guard, adding or removing finger grooves, or adding stippling, grip tape, or checkering are specifically allowed." I think "but not limited to" in this case, would cover what you are asking about. Will see what more experienced folks say.
