  1. What ammo? If you do not mind. Oh, and what is your method for cleaning/not cleaning the cylinder? One wonders if Ti eats up S&W's tooling faster than what they are used to & if that is a piece of the quality control issues.
  2. Just sent a note to S & W to see what their take is on the 929 not being suitable for use with 9mm brass and common 9mm diameter bullets. Do not know what/if anything that I will get for an answer, but I think if a lot of people are having issues with a product then it is never a good thing to suffer in silence, and sometimes a manufacturer can provide helpful info. If the wheel isn't squeaking it won't get greased.
  3. Don't like that for production or single stack minor, but it is an interesting notion for revolver. In USPSA math it seems like 10+1 = 2*8 as far as number of reloads is concerned.
  4. Is there a "but I just want to shoot" option that works well? I.e. , buy these moon clips, buy this 9mm brass, buy these reloading components, go have fun.
  5. https://www.ssusa.org/articles/2016/4/11/beat-the-mid-match-crash/ This seemed to work well for me. Also I try to put the right things in the day before the match (bananas, maybe pasta) not just on match day. That said, I think if a match is the hottest & most taxing thing you do then you are pretty much screwed even if you are eating mana from heaven and drinking holy water. I'm not as good as this guy "I just stay in shape. I don't really mind shooting in 100 degree weather. I've raced mountain bikes in that plenty of times. Shooting has more shade." , but I do try to make sure that
  6. I have 2 guns from czc, both right at 5.25 da and 1.7 sa. I've got an 85 and a compact that I did myself (cgw parts except I think I used the pre-b disco from cz custom, guidance per the wonderful tuning thread on this website), for some reason s.a. is slightly more (about 2) but d.a. is the same or slightly better. Disclaimer - 8.5# hammer springs so federal primers only, and my trigger gauge is nothing fancy.
  7. FOR THE WIN !! Seems to help with pre-match nerves as well. I do need to routinely add a bit of stretching and dry fire.
  8. Last level 2 match I was at had your local M's and GM's and also one world class shooter. Seems like the prima donna thing pretty much vanishes when there is a shooter present who is winning almost every stage by a respectable margin. That said, most of the M and GM folks I have met are very helpful and fun to shoot with.
  9. Have worked a couple level two matches so far as scorekeeper. You get to shoot with the staff, and then you get to watch and see how all the good shooters at the match run a stage. While you are watching you are not under any pressure related to your own shooting. I think it is a great learning opportunity and they even give you free match fees and prizes & stuff for it.
  10. That might be fairly good, or it might be not as good as you want it to be. The number does not mean much to me without the target specifics. For very short distance (say 7 yards or less) I'm usually right at 1.15 with a best of 1.02 . As distance increases the number climbs if I insist upon shooting alphas, for 20 yards I'm probably something like 1.65 ish or maybe more.
  11. A friend brought his glock 9mm gun and his glock 40 mags and ammo to a match. The problem was obvious, as soon as you new what the problem was .
  12. the RO should not be in front of the ejection port anyway...he should be behind the gun to begin with... Which way is the shrapnel going to fly?
  13. Ok, that just seems mentally irregular, he is saying keep your hand safe and let the r.o. take the hits if there is any shrapnel ??
  14. +1 I don't even know what a "Ghost walk through" is .
  15. That is how I break down a stage, 6 + 2 moving - reload - 8 at this window - reload - etc. With memory stages in particular I need to count shots or targets while shooting else I can go past a target. Seems like when you are running the stage you sort of feel the right number of shots sometimes and are aware on the number others, probably related to how fast the stage is. That is a barely B class guy with a production gun though.
  16. I just broke down and bought a swinger ($200 for one that was well made by an individual, you can get by for less if you are handy).
  17. I see a group hug coming on at about page 19.
  18. I would have asked for my money back.If it's an IDPA match, they have an IDPA rulebook... or at least should. NOTHING in that book about flip and catch. You don't get to make up new rules on the spot. If the MD SOs and ROs are that ignorant of firearms that they fear the flip and catch, I don't want to shoot there anyway. Depends on the source of the rule. Club rules may be more stringent than match rules. I think this is true of most of the shooting sports, if a club rule exists then you are obligated to follow it. As noted, if you feel strongly about a unique restriction you may cho

  20. Is this adjustment correct for non fpb block guns ? I'm guessing no since cgw's website says the adjustment is different for different guns & to call them. Anyway, if somebody knows the correct adjustment for something like a cz 85 combat it would be appreciated. There is no predetermined adjustment. Each pistol is different. What issue are you having? No issue, just going through a new gun and trying to make things as correct as possible. Seems like there has to be a better starting point than 'however it left the factory' , that is what I was attempting to find.

  22. If this was sprung on me without notice I'd still do it - and if they DQ'd me I wouldn't be back. Simple solution to stupid rules. Or vica versa .
  23. That doesn't seem to working out either. I am pretty soft on the unpaid volunteers who do the work so the rest of us can enjoy shooting, also I am one of those folks a couple times a month or so so my opinion is biased in that way also. That said, the folks who run the timer in my part of the world are very very appreciated and generally either good or very good. Perfect, no.
