    Thickest CZ grips

  2. FWIW, I no longer have this issue. When an RO saw it he was asking if I was crimping too tight, but I told him it was factory ammo. I've shoot a couple thousand rounds since then with no issues, so I am wondering if it was just that batch?

    Shadow 2 or A01 LD?

    I had one. They are awesome. Do it.
  4. So your early post said a good group for this gun was 3" at 10 yards off a bench, but stuart was able to do less than 1" at same distance. Maybe you and this gun just don't agree with each other. I had a high end trap gun and had a similar experience - I and several others shot it and all of us saw it shooting way low and way left. I sent it back to where I bought it, and he shot it perfectly. So what then? Rather than dive further into the quicksand, I ended up sending it down the road and getting another one that works great and I still use. Sometimes it's just easier that way.
  5. 4 grand and you still get a plastic trigger...
  6. This is great advice. At my first match I knew no one. I told the folks at the sign up table that it was my first time, and they made sure someone looked after me. Many many people at my local matches will go out of their way to help a noob.
  7. My friend and I took up USPSA shooting a couple years ago. I'm in my early 60's and he's in his early 70's. We are having a blast! The younger folks are better than us but it's still fun to compete and to watch ourselves progress. Additionally, brainpower is pretty important when deciding how to take a stage - it's not just about how fast you can run. DO IT!
  8. I did it, and you do need a drill press and the right drills. You'll also need to put some wood inside the mag to support it. The whole thing is not terribly difficult.

    glasses for trap

    Well I guess we just (respectfully) disagree. You are correct in stating that you want to wear the lens that lets the most light in without having to squint. But you state that it's "all about personal preference" and while I will definitely agree that's a part of the equation, it's not what it's all about. There are lots of reasons why you don't see everyone wearing the same color lenses on the line on a given day. Maybe a shooter can only afford the cheapo glasses from the sporting goods store. Maybe the shooter isn't aware of the science behind the best lens for birds against a blue sky background vs a brown tree background vs a snow background shooting under the lights vs three different backgrounds (as the bird makes the transition from a background of grass then to trees to the sky), vs.... Or maybe (like me) a shooter has to wear prescription glasses so can only afford a couple colors so it's gonna be one or the other no matter what. I have taken lessons from several folks that make a living shooting trap: Phil Kiner, Harlan Campbell, Leo Harrison, Nora Ross, and others I've forgotten, and they all talk about how to select the best color for the conditions as part of their clinics. On the other hand a guy I used to shoot with (R.I.P. Dan K.) used to shoot with one orange lens and one purple! So go figure... ?

    glasses for trap

    Jim, respectfully, it's a more involved than that. I shot trap competitively for several years. Good glasses are tinted to enhance various bird colors (orange, lime, etc) and to dull background colors (blue sky, trees, other foliage etc). There's a lot to it - it's not a personal preference at all.
  11. I wish this was the case, but given the Dawson tuning kit and DVD exists, it's hard for me to agree.
  12. I have a CZC and an AA gun, both are great. Can't go wrong with any of the three customizers.
  13. A small price to pay given you'd be a legend and a hero on BEnos!
