  1. Didn't R.Leatham win the revolver nationals and the single stack nationals on the same weekend? For mere mortals, if I shoot only one gun then it seems like my subconscious adapts and I can feel when it is time to reload and etc when a stage plan is deviated from.
  2. That sounds right. At his senior HSFB homecoming game a friend was hit low and from the side with his right foot planted, trashed the knee and the film is pretty gut wrenching. That was on grass though.
  3. Didn't some of the professional sports outlaw cleats to prevent injury to the wearer? I might be remembering wrong or it may not be relevant (there is usually not all that much blocking and tackling at USPSA/IDPA matches), but I thought the deal with cleats is that sometimes they work too well.
  4. Wet grass not good. A friend had one foot slide and one foot stick at an IDPA match, result was an ambulance ride and knee surgery.
  5. I have never found anyone that did in USPSA. Have watched the USPSA rules head honcho + the president + a very well respected range master debate number of procedurals at a level 2. Also my very well respected r.o. class instructor gave me incorrect instruction (overridden by T.M.) on a question during class - when I shared T.M.'s different answer he responded by explaining that T.M. was the chief but he had to answer according to the rule book. My favorite rules thing was a starting position disagreement between the CRO and myself as RO at a level 2. When we asked for clarificatio
  6. You can, but then you will be wrong for the guns that point 'naturally' for you before relearning. For me it is just a whole lot easier to stay away from the original frame Glocks and Shadow 2.
  7. That is not my experience. Could very well be that I learned using a sort of typical frame geometry, so guns which mimic that geometry (1911's , 2011's, Tanfo's, Shadow 1) feel as if they point naturally.
  8. Max Michel demonstrated a 0.7 second draw to a sight picture at the last NRA annual I attended, I think that is sort of par for the pro's. He is so ridiculously efficient in movement that he looked sort of slow doing it. Last time I checked myself (at 60+) I was able to get one draw to a near target alpha at 0.97 seconds but more typically around 1.1, that is an old B class hacker guy drawing a production gun out of a production legal holster that never practiced micro drills or whatever, just the full normal draw. It should not take a younger person much work to get there.
  9. Apparently there is, at least Enos is not as ugly as Facebook and twitter though, the important thing is that you do not let it bug you.
  10. I've done it for local IDPA matches and it has been a good training tool. Give a stage a subtle hint name like "Don't break 180" , during the s.o. walk through emphasize that every squad is cautioned about the need not to screw up, and make sure the shooter will be in plain site of the squad when doing the tricky bits. New shooters get to see how the experienced shooters do the tricky parts right and get practice doing the tricky stuff right. You can not protect shooters in the long term from needing to be able to do things like running backwards with a gun or reloading when moving
  11. My Shadow 2 had me duck hunting on the draw, none of my other guns do (the old Glocks did also) . Sold the S2 rather than adapting to it and then being forced to re-adapt when I shot something else.

    CZ TS 2

    You seem determined to confuse what works for muzzle dip (light slides, reduced weight recoil springs) with a somewhat magical reduction in recoil. There is no free lunch, forces must balance. It is interesting to consider barrel weight's effect on felt recoil. While slide to barrel is initially locked the barrel should effectively act as a slide weight and then the barrel momentum should transfer to the frame through the barrel link & etc.

    CZ TS 2

    That comes from engineering & physics classes. There are always a long string of minute influences that tend to zero for all practical purposes. When you weigh yourself on a scale you likely do not factor in the variance of weight do to the relative position of the moon, for example.

    CZ TS 2

    Not sure about that. On the way back, F=M*A, so you can have less mass and more speed or more mass and less speed but you have to counteract the same force either way. For dip on slide closure I think the you are right.
  15. Yep. When I switched back to limited for a time it felt like I was missing out on a lot of what I enjoyed, when you hit your reloads slick and feel pressure not to miss that steel and force a reload that is the good stuff. I would like to see the limited division rules tweaked to allow big stick mags in limited minor for those that do not enjoy the planning/reloading/accuracy challenge of low capacity shooting. Limited major would need to retain some advantage to prevent devaluation of existing guns but I can't see a 9mm big stick changing much besides making room for those folks
  16. Was there a thorough inspection of the firing pin channel? No crud which may have prevented the pin from fully retracting?

    CZ TS 2

    Me either. Les Baer guarantees everything to do a 3" group at 50 yards and for an adder 1.5" at 50 , so the bull is not about practical accuracy in a pistol. Maybe longevity?
  18. Rob Leatham rather famously dropped his gun for a dq at the single stack nationals, and I have seen a local gm with long experience drop a gun as well. s#!t happens.
  19. It appears that I was a bit late on this one. Thank you regardless. Good morning, Unfortunately, the front sight custom with optic fiber comes with 1 mm Fiber optic. Tanfoglio has stop producing it in 1,5 mm. Sorry Have a nice day Best regards, Sebastien Egret -- www.ericgrauffelonlineshop.com
  20. When I dropped my gun and it fired, the bullet hit the concrete between my feet, do not think that is possible if the gun was dropped on the hammer.
  21. When I dropped my CZ and it fired the bullet hit the concrete. I don't think that is possible if the gun lands on the hammer.
  22. Maybe. Length and weight of aftermarket pins also seems like a thing, and perhaps neither would be an issue with other than federal primers.
  23. I'm coming into this thread late and haven't read all 7 pages, but anyway for what it is worth: I came forward on the draw with a CZ 75 CTS-LS (no firing pin block) before the barrel cleared the holster during practice. Dropped gun landed on concrete and fired. After cleaning my shorts I found that the bullet marked the concrete as if it landed muzzle first between my feet. The gun in question had an extended firing pin and a reduced weight firing pin spring - the ammo had deep seated soft federal primers. I sent a notification to CZ Custom when it happe
  24. From Tanfo. Dear xxxx xxxxx, we received your message and we thank you. We inform you that all our front sight with fiber optic models have the fiber of 1mm. Thanks Best Regards / Cordiali SalutiCustomer Service
