  1. I just ran into this Extreme brass in a batch of brass I bought off of this forum. Is this stuff any good? I've never heard of it before.
  2. +1 on what Sarge said. I picked up a pair of Racing Reds when I was on the Rudy Team. It is a fantastic combo.
  3. I believe if both parts are titanium, there should be no issue.
  4. Full disclosure....my 17# spring may have been worn out. My concern with a titanium hammer strut is it chewing up the MS cap.
  5. I think the 17# hammer spring will work fine with soft primers. Since I have Les Baers in my arsenal, I can't shoot Federal primers because I ran into problems with breech face erosion. I had to switch to Winchester and CCIs and started getting light strikes with the 17# spring. I changed to a 19#er and have had no issues with these guns.
  6. This is brilliant in its simplicity. I love it!
  7. I had interesting conversation with a guy that used to work in the ballistics lab at Hornady and wrote one of their manuals. He told me that years ago Hornady wanted to save some money on production costs so they started making their bullets with a thinner shell of copper. By pure chance, those bullets ended up being more accurate.
  8. If you are talking about a rifle match, I have no opinion on this. In IDPA I absolutely HATE blind stages. There is no way to create an even playing field. People will help their buddies that haven't shot it yet. The staff that are also competing for a trophy will have an advantage if they helped set the stage up. 14 years ago I shot an IDPA match in Texas. One of the competitors beat me on that stage by 20 seconds. There is no way he did that to me without help. If you insist on doing a blind stage to make it more realistic, then set an obtainable par time and just add penalties to the time. There is also a safety concern for me. I have personally witnessed a competitor downrange pasting targets when the next shooter was about to be given the start signal. There is also a video floating around of a USPSA stage being run while someone is downrange pasting targets. Multiple targets were engaged with someone in harms way. When I am the next shooter, I like to personally verify the range is clear before I go hot. If I shoot someone accidentally, it's my fault. I'm the guy that is going to be held accountable. As much as I want to trust the match staff to verify a clear range, I trust myself more. I'm of the opinion that range safety is just something many people pretend to care about.
  9. I’ve been throwing ten charges and taking an average. I like the idea of doing thirty better.
  10. I liked what you said in your podcast Brian, "Attention is error free."
  11. Joe Chambers posted on a thread regarding 9mm reaming. Here is the link: This should be a good place to start.
  12. I am selling 8 DVDs with over 15 hours of instruction.
  13. I had a Power Custom fixture but didn't like it. EGW makes good stuff. My vote is for the 19# mainspring.
  14. You are quite welcome. Glad to help.
  15. The Ready Tactical moon clip holders are not IDPA legal. It appears the holster is. The North Mountain moon clip holders are IDPA legal. Thanks for all the help.
  16. My cylinder arrived today, they machined the cylinder and had it (along with the rest of my order) back in the mail the same day.
  17. That's advice I will take. Thank you. Dibs on one box of .45 brass with large primers.
  18. Todd, Where did this brass come from? Is this once-fired? If it is quality stuff, I'm interested in a box.
  19. Have you seen Deep River Customs in the Vendor Tent? They have a 1911 trigger class coming up.
  20. Ted Murphy helped me out tremendously at Nationals in '07 after the airlines misplaced my luggage.
  21. By "these" do you mean the Ready Tactical moon clip holders? Thanks GmanCdp.
  22. Which holster are you guys using for the 625 in IDPA? Thank you. I’m setting up a 625 for ESR.
