  1. CCP seems pretty popular at least at the practice matches I attend. I'll find out soon at a regional match. I'm signed up for CCP SS.
  2. Wait now I see it. They changed the height for CCP to 5 3/8 from 6 right. Makes sense I guess. I'll have to run the Wilson Compact when I shoot sanctioned matches and Qualifiers.
  3. I have a Kimber 4" barrel 9mm Tactical Pro that I bought used and fixed up just for matches and practice. It has the full length frame and a mag well. I 'thinned out' the ambidextreous safety so that it makes the width requirement. At the 2015 Arizona State match it fit in the CCP box even with Tripp magazines. Has the CCP box changed since then? If the Kimber doesn't fit t I could shoot my EDC Wilson Compact with the shorter frame but would rather not.
  4. From what I can tell it's both. For CCP the 6" dimension of the box is 5.75 instead of 6.0. And, the thickness is restricted to 1 3/8s instead of 1 /5/8s. I have found that my Kimber Tactical Pro with the mag well fits with the barrel tilted down after I filed down the front of the base pads on the magazines and trim the left safety lever. I am planning on shooting the Kimber in CCP at the Arizona State Championship this Saturday but I'm bringing my Wilson Compact just in case I'm wrong....
  5. I looked at the rules again and near as I can determine if it fits it fits.
  6. I would like to use my Kimber Tactical Pro 2 for CCP. I trimmed the ambi safety so it makes the width requirement but with the mag well the base pads were too long. I trimmed the base pads down and now it fits if IF I tip it forward. Will that be OK? I'd like to use the pistol for the AZ State match on May 2.
  7. I shot IPSC back in the 80s and the took a 25 year hiatus while I did Dad duty. When I returned a couple years ago to USPSA and IDPA one thing I noticed is that the old protocol of assigning tape and brass had changed. We used to call out... Shooter On Deck Tape Tape Brass It worked really well back then. Also the shooters on tape would wait with the RO and walk back after the targets were taped and the steel reset.
  8. The max width is annoying. Pistols with Ambi Safeties will probably need trimming to fit. The max width on my Kimber was actually not at the right safety lever. The right lever (the one a lefty would use) is closer to the frame because it doesn't have to clear the safety plunger tube. I would have had to make even a non-ambi safety of the same profile thinner to comply to the max width.
  9. The mag well on my Kimber Tactical Pro II is 1.305 wide and I have reduced the safety until the maximum width from then right grip to the left side safety lever is 1.350. The last step was to make the 5.750 height. To do that I trimmed the steel base pad on a Wilson 10rd mag so that it barely extends below the mag well
  10. It can't be considered 'gaming' if all of your handguns already qualify right? I own three pistols and all would 'fit' with some minor changes. I just finished fixing up a used 9mm Kimber Tactical Pro II to practice with and shoot in ESP and USPSA Single Stack.. 4" barrel, Commander length alloy frame with mag well. I'd have to trade out the ambi safety but that's easy enough I bought the Kimber because it is very much like my everyday carry which is a Lightweight Wilson Compact CQB in 9mm. I could use this but I would have to switch out the ambi safety and remove the Crimson Trace Laser Grips When I'm out hunting or Fishing I carry a Glock 23 with a Lane Owens grip reduction and Wolf 9mm conversion. I could shoot the Glock but would have to remove the Crimson trace grips from it to make the width. Near as I can tell all three would work but it would be easier to switch out the ambi safety on the Kimber because I'd have to remove the Crimson trace laser grips from the Wilson Compact and the Glock 19 every time I shot a match to make the width requirements.
  11. Cold Bore Customs www.coldborecustom.com If I remember right his name is Lane Owens. He is in Texas but he turned mine around in a few days.
  12. I use a Wilson 10 rd magazine especially configured for a compact. The base plate/pad wraps up the front of the magazine to keep it from being inserted too far.
  13. OK I just posted this in a different thread but as I thought about it decided I'd probably get quicker responses if I started a new thread. I'll add a bit of detail here as well. I would like to compete in single stack with my 9mm light weight Wilson compact. It has a officers length grip with a 4 inch barrel (so that's not an issue). I'd like to use the 10 round Wilson magazines I have so that I take advantage of shooting minor. Since these magazines are identical to full size 1911 magazines the gun/magazine combination will easily meet the size and weight restrictions. My reading of the USPSA rules would say that I would be allowed to use the 10 round magazine. At the local practice match I shoot nobody has an issue with it but I am thinking about shooting some 'official matches' and I'm wondering if they will take issue with the magazine extending the extra 1/2 inch. What prompted me wondering is that I was looking at the Rob Leatham Western States Single Stack match and noticed this restriction: Copied directly from the Western States single Stack web site... Equipment 5” 1911 style pistols with a single stack magazine. Maximum capacity is 8 rounds in the magazine, for scoring “Major” for a total of 9 in the gun. To score “Major” minimum caliber is .40. For “Minor” you can have 10 rounds in the magazine. Magazine must fit flush with the bottom of the pistol. Magazine wells are allowed. Ammunition must not extend past the grip frame of the pistol. Magazine base pads are also allowed. What say ye? Thanks
  14. I was doing a little 'google searching' and ran across this topic. I have a related question... I would like to compete in single stack with my 9mm light weight Wilson compact.
