  1. Along with the vp9sk check it out. http://www.heckler-koch.com/en/products/military/pistols/sfp9/sfp9-l/product-overview.html
  2. The PPQ is nice but has some flaws for action shooting. It recoils more than the competition and results in slower splits. The grip is pretty slick. That seems to be the consensus by just about everyone that tries them for action shooting. The trigger is awesome but considering what you can do to glock and m&p triggers it kind of makes that a mute point. I dont one know if the 5" tames it at all.
  3. Debating if I should play in Limited or single stack next. Should I get a CK Hardcore 2011 or a CK 9mm 1911?
  4. I am planning to get a gunsmith fit barrel for my 2.0. I won't do the fitting myself and will take it to a gunsmith. Is this a pretty routine and simple thing for a smith to do? My local smith builds 1911s so I imagine it's nothing for him to fit a barrel but I just want to make sure it's not something that can be easily messed up.
  5. I know. This has been talked about before. I want to get a PCC. My brain keeps telling me to get an MPX because because of it's advantages, primarily the fact that it shoots real soft for fast splits. For some reason i really want the CZ. I like its light weight and it just feels good shouldering. Tafan Butler says the MPX is a real advantage over everything out there. Is it really the case? Are you limiting yourself with a CZ?
  6. Wouldn't your hand hit he magwell awkwardly?
  7. Not sure how to best describe this but I was shooting today and thinking about how the gun lines up in your hand, wrists, and arms. When you watch guys like Bob Vogel talk about grip they sort of clamp in on the gun and the elbows flare out. This causes the gun to line up at an angle compared to the wrist. I've seen this called an "offset grip." i was watching a video with Jon McPhee. He's a former Green Beret and Delta guy. He was talking about the importance of lining the gun up with the arm. I've seen this called an "in-line grip." I don't think it can ever really get fully in line with an isosceles stance because the gun is in the center of your body and your arms don't come out of your chest. He says the in-line grip is important for accuracy. If the gun is offset in your hand it'll cause you to pull shots. So shooting today I was trying to focus on tucking my elbows in and getting the gun in line with my arm as much as possible. It seemed like this provided more muzzle control because my shooting arm was locked and absorbing recoil, compared to having my wrist offset and it being harder to control. Maybe I'm overthinking it but does anyone pay attention to how your wrist and arms line up with the gun. What have you found?
  8. I bought a 2.0 today and it's good. I got the 4.25" because that's what's available without a safety. Stippling is good and aggresive. The trigger is ok. It's right at 5lbs, pretty smooth, but the break is creepy. Recoil is smooth and light. Accuracy seemed good. Off hand I didn't have any surprises. Groups at 25 yards on an NRA B8 were fairly impressive. Still plan on an Apex gunsmith fit Barrel though to see what it's really capable of. Honestly, as a Glock fanboy I think this has greater potential if the trigger can get sorted. I've messaged Apex to see what they recommend and if it's possible to get a crisp 4lb trigger in the 2.0s. I'll keep playing with it but a 5" may be in order for production and I think that these M&P's really are underrated.
  9. They will have 2500 made next month so yes. Just have to remove the magwell.
  10. The 2.0 is available now all over. 4 and 5". Apex has 2.0 parts on the site.
  11. HKpro is saying that a VP9L will be at SHOT.

    Gen 3 or Gen 4

    I have and yea it lightens the pull but there's still more creep because of the dot connector verse a standard connector. With all things being equal, the gen 4 will be about a half pound heavier than a gen 3 because of the tighter geometry. I've tried a standard connector in a gen 4 and that didn't work well either. I use medium backstraps on a gen 4 anyway so there's no point to a gen 4 imo if the trigger will never be as good. I've had several gen 4s and several gen 3s.
  13. With the Shadow 2 coming out is the regular sp01 shadow still relevant? Are they going to keep making them?
  14. That seems like a super light recoil spring. CGW days not to go below 15lbs on the p09.
  15. SJC frame weight. Brass magwell TTI base pads sights whatever trigger work guide rod and springs.

    Gen 3 or Gen 4

    I just bought a vickers glock and the trigger is much better than my gen 4's. Not sure I'm liking the RTF2 but I won't go back to gen 4's.
  17. I have never considered an H&K for competition but I was messing with a USP tactical yesterday and that thing is sweet. I like the trigger and ergos. It'd be funny to roll up to a match with one.
  18. I have the case tumbler listed there. The smaller Dillon one. I guess my biggest confusion still is case prep. I was planning on buying the best brass I can to start. So Lapua. So after I load and shoot my first run, what's needed to get the brass ready to reload other than cleaning it?
  19. I'm looking to get in to reloading. I've been a little nervous to jump in to it but it's time. I built a package through Dillon. What else do I need to load 9mm for sure and probably 45? Dillon XL650 - Case feeder - Powder check - Bullet tray - low powder sensor - 9mm pistol dies - 9mm case guage - D-terminator electric scale - Primer flip tray - primer pickup tubes - digital caliper - Lyman reloading book - Dillon case cleaner - case/media separator
  20. I've been eyeing Atlas hard. What am I getting with an Atlas Titan compared to the STI DVC limited with the Atlas tune and trigger job?

    Gen 3 or Gen 4

    The very nature of a dot connector is what makes it mushier. A standard connector will be the crispest, but in a gen 4 it results in a real heavy trigger.
  22. I've seen this happen to good shooters that really know what they are doing and I don't know the reason for it. All I can say is get another rod and new springs and see if it still happens.

    Gen 3 or Gen 4

    Gen 3. I have gen 4's but may sell for gen 3's because they have much better triggers. I'm picky about triggers and gen 3's have lighter and crisper triggers all else being equal. They are more reliable too when you start swapping springs because of the geometry.
  24. A few years ago it seemed like the xdm was fairly popular. Now it seems like nobody shoots one. The ergos are pretty good, the trigger is good and can be excellent. Is it because if you aren't shooting a Glock the ppq, 320, etc have taken over as the alternative?
