  1. Cant we just weld up the LCI? Problem solved?
  2. 135 with Titegroup. 130pf
  3. I set up a Gen5 G34 for CO also. Ejection always bothered me. Cases ejected but wouldn’t make it much further than my feet. Only thing that fixed it was an Apex Gen3 extractor. Now a good 5-6 feet to 4:00
  4. Day 1: 6/18. The draw. Not a big deal when it comes to stage performance but the base on many of these drills. Ben suggest 0.7 par time. I found I could comfortably cruise into an Alpha in 0.9: Pushing myself to 0.8 was hit or miss. Literally. Overall, not a bad start. Will continue to work on this and getting a more consistent grip every time. I think I have a lot of time to gain REACTING to the buzzer. Does anyone else feel they draw slower with LIVE ammo versus a mag full of training rounds????
  5. Yup. That’s me too. Same as putting second shot into the hardcover on a zebra. Already looking at what I’m going to do next.
  6. Seriously probably 4-5 years. Major. Several classes notably with Manny Brag and Ben Stoeger. And of course being in Colorado the Big Panda.
  7. This will be my Dry Fire journal. So after this weeks local match and reviewing results I realize I have “plateaued”. My movement is good and my time is where they should be given that I am 53 but I’m giving up to many points. More about me, Already stated I’m 53 and have average to slightly better agility. Probably above average strength for my age. Weakness is definitely my vision and between my ears. My eyes are -9 with astigmatism. My dominant left eye has also had a large floater which I just had broken up with the first of two treatments. That helped. Also learned I have slight cataracts and will like be having that surgery soon. I shoot In Limited with a little SS thrown in around the Western States SS match. I know people will say I should switch to a dot but I’ll like the 1911/2011. My classification in LTD is sitting at a solid 77% with my two lowest of 8 being 71 and 72. When everything goes right I can get to 75-80 percent of GM hit factor on a stage but that is too infrequent. I’ll have too many stages with the unexplained Mike on an open target, and a load of Cs to ever score well in a match, My my goals are two fold: first, make Master before it’s too late (I’m thinking that’s 55) and second improve my match performance. Improving my match performance to me would be shooting 90% of available points after penalties. Doing that at my current speed will I think provide satisfactory match results. So let the Dry Fire begin. I’ve got Bens book and this journal will be my journey through the book and my progress. We’ve got three months until this years Nationals in Saint George. Plenty of time. Let’s get too it!
  8. Think I’ll probably just go Si Carbide
  9. Just think about trying to create a texture like the DVC on a Q5 Match. What kind of tip would I use? Those questions. Silicon Carbide is always an option.
  10. Wondering if anyone has tried to create or reproduce a DVC like grip texture on their own? How did it turn out?
  11. Thanks, for the clarification. I didn’t know that
  12. Check out their FB page. Lots of videos from yesterday of people shooting what appear to be final stages. This is really bogus. I don’t belive I’ll be going back next year the way they seem to run a mini training camp in the stages before the match.
  13. The two stages posted on facebook that prompted me to start this tread sure looked very similar to the match book. same start, location of targets. Maybe ALL the targets were not the same but the positions were the same and the swinger was the same, the start was the same. So maybe if they will still be "Tweaked" (their word not mine) its not blatantly illegal but sure seems less than fair. Then everyone chimes in with "when you get more experience"... "its no big deal"..... Did anyone ripping my wisdom or experience even compare the facebook videos to the stage drawings... I really doubt it. So whatever.
  14. Well that was news to me. First time I ever saw video of the stage being shot on FB before a match.
  15. Just for the record I help run two local matches a month so I do my share of hammer swinging. I guess since I've only been in this sport for about 5 years, a couple nationals, numerous area championships and level II matches. I guess I'll learn to not care as much as I strive to reach your level of wisdom. Yes, I think being able to shoot the swingers and max traps ahead of time to learn what timing works is an advantage. No, I don't really think it will change the outcome.
  16. Tell me I shouldn’t be pissed. WSSSC is next weekend and videos are going on Facebook of competitors shooting the stages this weekend as part of a “club match”. Oh they say not the same. Much tweeting to be done. BS. The timing on the swingers is the same, walls and positions are the same. Targets are for the most part the same. Ok. Maybe the take one target out here and love this other one a little left or right. It’s still the same stage. So much for “level playing field”. Tell me I shouldn’t be pissed.
  17. The way things are going in some states. SS May be the last division standing.
  18. Good thing I’m limited/SS shooter anyway
  19. Ha! Thing is thelat would probably only affect about five people
  20. How do you apply the “covers the slide up to 1/2” from the ejection post” when there is no ejection “port”? Legal holster? If the 92 had an ejection port this would be good to go.
  21. It’ll be 70 this weekend so looking to get some range time in and get this sorted out. Going to try factory Ammo with stock recoil assembly and taking the deltapoint off. See if it’s the gun or me and my astigmatism
