  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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
  4. 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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
  8. 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
  9. 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?
  11. 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.
  12. 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
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. Maybe. Length and weight of aftermarket pins also seems like a thing, and perhaps neither would be an issue with other than federal primers.
  16. 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
  17. 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
  18. Thanks!! Just sent a couple emails asking for part numbers to get the 1.5, from either website I can't see where they clarify diameter although there is one part called out as a 1.0. The kind boss lady at Patriot Defense is checking around for me as well.
  19. Thanks. I talked with them today, don't make one with 1.5 for the Tanfo and the guy I talked to said he thought trying to drill one out would be a bit dangerous.
  20. My old eyes really love the fatter 1.5 mm fiber shown on the left and the 3.0 mm width of both the sights shown. Anybody know where to find one? Thought about just drilling out a 1.0 mm fiber sight but I think that would be tough (base below fiber would somehow need lowered or channeled, can't just open the holes). I think I got the fat one from EAA a few years ago but am not certain and have not had any luck contacting EAA to verify and ask if they will ever get one in stock.
  21. FWIW. So far the best load I've found is 180 Bayou 3.9 Clay Dot (pretty similar to what my 625 liked). Still looking. With mixed head stamp range brass and Federal primers the gun has been 100%. No tweaking yet beyond the McCarbo kit (shims - reduced hammer spring - reduced trigger return spring) and some polishing. No indication of any brand of spent brass wanting to stick, which may be due to shooting just a smidge above IDPA minimum power factor (155) rather than a hotter load.
  22. Thank you for that very constructive suggestion. It is people like you who read a thread before responding, and help others in a good natured and friendly fashion, that make the shooting sports great fun.
  23. At the time, it seemed like a yes or no question was safe enough. Silly me.
  24. And also, if you jump up and down naked during a course of fire while screaming "Krishna Krishna Hari Krishna" and flapping your arms like chicken wings, that is a dq under 10.6.1 .
