  1. TK Custom is a great company. Eli has been very good to me.
  2. Who is making the best body armor these days? I see a lot of different companies out there, but I have no idea how to choose the right one.
  3. I don't distinguish between local or major matches. If the round doesn't pass the case gauge, it goes in the practice ammo bin.
  4. My son is allergic to bee and wasp stings. He carries two epi pens. One of them recently saved his life. He was stung at work and immediately self-administered epinephrine. He went to the Emergency Department and hung out there for several hours before being admitted for overnight observation. It scared the s#!t out of me. This may be a bit of a thread drift, but the most common mistake people with allergies make is not taking their epinephrine soon enough.
  5. This thread is dead to me now.
  6. I really like that!
  7. I don't understand how your instructor didn't hear this squib.
  8. I’m gracefully bowing out of this discussion.
  9. Time for me to remove myself from this discussion.
  10. Wait...what? Did I just read that right? You’re being serious?
  11. Thanks for this post. I've been looking for an IDPA legal cylinder release, and now I've found it.
  12. The RO is responsible for maintaining the safety of the range. Your annoyance, or mine for that matter, doesn't factor into that equation. Some people need to be babysat because some peoples brain flies off after the timer goes off. BTW, you can still have a round in the chamber and still not go bang when the hammer is dropped. Multiple fail safes is a good idea on a gun range with 100+ competitors chasing targets for speed.
  13. Years ago I was at a local match hosted by a club run by guys I knew very well. After the match was over, I was standing by the safe area when a competitor removed his gun from his holster. He racked the slide and a round popped out. If he had just finished a stage, he certainly would have had to unload and show clear. So how could this have happened? I don't know the answer to this question, but clearly something happened that should not have. As the RO it is their responsibility to make sure the range is really clear before everyone heads downrange to paste targets and set steel. If the RO isn't comfortable with what he/she just saw, stop the shooter and make them go through it again.
