    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?
  2. 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.
  3. 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
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. Maybe. Length and weight of aftermarket pins also seems like a thing, and perhaps neither would be an issue with other than federal primers.
  7. 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 happened and have made a comment or two about it on this site previously. I just noticed that that particular gun has been discontinued.
  8. 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
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. At the time, it seemed like a yes or no question was safe enough. Silly me.
  15. 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 .
  16. Is there The question that inspired this thread (confirming definition for the start of the course of fire) was answered in the first response and apparently there is nothing in the rules mentioning whether or not a dropped gun is loaded. I got it, not sure why there are multiple posts explaining the immediately obvious.
  17. After there is a correct understanding of how the start of a COF is defined, sure. Else, if any rules related to a dropped gun mention whether or not the gun is loaded I have not found them or seen them referenced here.
  18. Confirming how the rules describe the start of a COF is sort of the whole gist of this thread.
  19. Where is that in the rules?
  20. Actually I think it was trying to remember back to the conclusion of one of the loooonnnggg and painful rule discussions that motivated me to screw it up in the first place. That is not an excuse though, I screwed up.
  21. I think I screwed up, but verification is a good thing. USPSA match, after telling a shooter to "make ready" he loaded and holstered and the gun dropped out of his holster (open type) when he removed his hand. My thinking was that he had not started the course of fire yet and he allowed me to pick up his gun so I should handle this just like you would a dropped gun during a stage walk through (for example) and no dq. Looking at the rules it appears that the course of fire started when I said "make ready" so I should have called a dq. Right??
  22. Nothings impossible, but every competition shooters revolver that I know about although perhaps some people keep their guns stock.
  23. I'm burning up my old .40 ammo I had loaded for shooting USPSA limited in a bottom feeder, range brass of mixed headstand, Winchester primers I think, primer seating depth at whatever I got with my Dillon 550. With that much not in my favor and a lighter hammer spring I typically have 1 failure to fire or 2 per 120 round local IDPA match. This is with TK custom 0.050 clips. I will be very surprised if there are any failure to fire issues when I start loading for this gun like I do for my other revolvers (Federals deep seated in a 1050 & brass sorted by head stamp), but I have been wrong before.
  24. Anybody have a good IDPA load (155 pf) worked up? Any info on the groups you have been able to get would be very interesting. I could have put this with the reloading stuff but I think the first question is what the gun itself can be expected to do. Darn neat gun, I just haven't found something that flies straight like I did in my 625.
