  1. That's awesome to hear as I'm a Gator (1992). Do they offer any scholarships to the team members? -John
  2. Please let Mark know that I sent you when you place your order. [emoji2] -John
  3. It's really a matter of personal preference. The one below on my MPX PCC is a 15", but Mark Isler says some guys do order it in 13.5" - it's all about the look you prefer:
  4. I've been shooting the SIG MPX for 3 years - first, the MPX Carbine, and now I also have a MPX PCC which is my backup. I've tried a few GMR-15's and have never been remotely motivated to switch - but I'll admit the JP's are purdy. Both of my PCCs are equipped with aftermarket parts from both In Lead We Trust and Isler Custom Gun Works (both are sponsors). For a trigger, I run the Hyperfire Competition (haven't changed the trigger out in the MPX PCC, which is quite good). Yes, do keep it clean - but both carbines have been extremely reliable for me.
  5. In my case, I shot my first local USPSA match in CO and thought the 10 round capacity limit was dumb. Didn't shoot any more USPSA that year. The following year the mag capacity changed, and I started shooting more USPSA.
  6. I will say that I side with those that feel that stage design should be division agnostic. The people that have problems with the PCC division because stage designs have changed are misdirecting their ire IMHO. This isn't a PCC problem. This is a MD problem. Again, just my opinion. The notion that promoting PCC somehow creates unskilled pistol shooters I think stems from the silly notion that shooting PCC requires no skill. Reloads still take practice. As does shooting weak/off-hand. As does operate a PCC accurately, at speed, and not violating any safety rules (breaking 180 for example). I'll also state that I think it's counterproductive from a 2A standpoint for there to be so much division hate/bashing. Yes, a PCC is a very practical defensive weapon. I'm grateful I have the opportunity to shoot competitively with one in USPSA. Ultimately if the gun grabbers win (which I think is more likely than not) a good part of the reason why is the practical shooting community tends to be a circular firing squad at times. If you're a safe shooter, you exhibit good sportsmanship, and you help reset, you should be embraced and supported in the community.
  7. Not at all. Of course, that sport already had rifles (rimfire) before PCC. But I've also found that Steel Challenge is more of a "family crowd" and less ego driven than what you can sometimes run into in USPSA. There is also (at least within PractiScore) the convention of reporting results in the "main match" which is defined at the Centerfire pistols. That makes it a bit easier to see how you compare with other centerfire pistols shooters.
  8. Doesn't Clemson have an action shooting team? I think there are a handful of schools that do and offer scholarships. USPSA or NRA might be of more help. I'd call them directly.
  9. I heard a rumor that Mecgar was going to be selling spring kits this year for many magazines they manufacture...might be worth checking into.
  10. I typically do the same with my MPX. BUT, CDNN has 10 round Gen 1 MPX mags for $14.99 ea. So I just ordered 5 to give this method a try. Perhaps being 30 rounds lighter will make a difference.
  11. Admittedly it’s not easy. I got lucky when they first came out. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  12. Nice. The best feeling trigger I've ever tried is the Elf line of triggers - 3-Gun and Match specifically. A local 3-gunner was sponsored by them for a brief time so several of us local shooters tried out his trigger in his gun, and really liked it. But nearly all of us experience problems with Elf triggers in our AR's. That's when I went to Hyperfire and I haven't looked back. It's NEARLY as good from a feel perspective in my book. Using the silver springs, everyone I've ever seen or spoken to get's a 2ish lb. pull...or less in your case.
  13. According to my sources in SIG, the gas system is unchanged, but the bolt carrier and recoil system is changed slightly. The new carrier has a pivoting op rod which should reduce carrier contact with the upper, as well as some improvements so the charging handle won't drag on the lower receiver which only caused cosmetic issues but was a point of contention for users. The new bolt carrier/recoil system is fully compatible with gen 2 receivers, gen 2 barrels, and gen 2 magazines so there won’t be an official generational change, just an improvement. -John
  14. Your point is well-made as the Timney will no doubt be better than the original factory MPX trigger. Personally, I'd rather it come without a trigger and a $100.00 lower price tag. Trigger's are an intensely personal thing so no matter which one they choose, there will be discontent. But I suppose the Timney will be a nice backup trigger. I don't know what a "top end" Hyperfire trigger is. But I have the 24c and the newer Competition Trigger (formerly known as the 24c) and both pull in the 2lb. range.
  15. “We’re actually producing the new PCC down on the line right now, and they should begin shipping shortly.” Based on this I’m hoping within the next 30 days. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  16. Do look at the SIG Romeo 3 - it's quite good.
  17. I'm told I've been added to the list of writers who will get one of the first examples from the first batch that comes out for review. Very interested.
  18. Why oh why did they put a 4.5lb trigger in it when the Hyperfire competition trigger is more like 2lbs. and some change... I'd really like to shoot it to see if that comp makes much of a difference.
  19. THIS. I actually did a detailed review of my Hunter's HD Gold glasses. They're fantastic.
  20. So here's what I'm doing to combat this issue in dryfire. When I start my dryfire, I do about three "warm-ups" where I draw on a target and pull the trigger 6 times. Then I move directly into my dryfire drills. Mentally, I'm telling myself "I've warmed up" and I expect 100% performance from myself after the warm-up. At matches, I do virtually the same thing at the safe table - draw on a target and pull the trigger 6 times as fast as I can, for 3 reps. Again, mentally I'm telling myself I'm warmed up - no excuses. It works pretty well for me.
  21. What is this +10 sorcery of which you speak??
  22. If you watch The video on the product page, Taran puts a magazine with his base pad in the USPSA “box” and it fits perfectly. I just got mine really like them.
  23. I'm trying to spread the word on a couple of Facebook Groups...
  24. I just registered. I saw there was an option for staff shirts on the Practiscore registration, but how do I order one of the match shirts?
