    Rule 9.1.3

    You really don't need to worry about the test. You'll go through the class where they cover all the important stuff over 2 days. Then you take test home at the end and email it to instructor whenever you get around to doing it.

    Rule 9.1.3

    It's an open book test. If you can't pass it then you probably shouldn't be trusted to own a firearm...

    Standing Definition

    Start positions should be objective, not subjective. Putting objective start positions in WSBs would eliminate these issues and make RO enforcement of start positions more uniform.

    Where to find a 17L Slide??

    3 gun, steel challenge, Pro Am and other types of steel matches all don't use major power factor so can shoot minor with 17L and not be at a disadvantage. I've used a 17L in various non USPSA matches such as these.

    But what if the WSB says the firearm ready condition is "gun loaded with a round in the chamber" and a competitor inserts a mag at make ready, but forgets to chamber a round?

    FTF issues with g22

    Instead of wasting all that ammo testing different spring combos, I bet it'd work if you remove all that aftermarket junk and bring it back to stock setup. If it works when 100% stock then start adding parts back one at a time to see which is the issue, as mentioned above.

    Buy entire gun and sell what you don't need.

    False. Last sentence in 10.5.19: "The berm/backstop is not required while removing/returning a properly flagged PCC from/to a vehicle providing all other safety rules are followed." I'm sure this will make your head explode since you can't do that with a handgun

    Just how bad are the groups with 55gr?

    Reporting PCC results separately

    Oh ok. I don't have that app.

    Reporting PCC results separately

    How do you use the app to view past match results? Maybe I'm just stupid, but it seems like the app only works if connected to range WiFi and can sync up live?

    FTF issues with g22

    Odds are it's one of the aftermarket parts causing the problems since it's not working with factory ammo too. Use factory mags without extensions and take aftermarket parts off one at a time and replace with the OEM ones until it starts working. Then you'll know what's causing the issues. Also that Glock is pretty old based off the extractor. Could be some part is worn out or broken. Have you detail stripped it and inspected parts?

    9mm barrels

    So I wound up ordering an FM Products barrel from Brownells. It does not have a short throat and every bullet I tried plunked in it even some with high ogives. I have yet to try out and zero this new build yet so don't know how well the barrel actually shoots though. Also, in case anyone cares, the barrel is listed as 8.5", but it's actually about 9.25". Just guessing, but I'd think maybe they're calling it 8.5" because it probably sticks out the same length from the upper as an 8.5" .223 barrel since 9mm barrels don't have barrel extensions like regular AR barrels. It still stuck out an appropriate amount from a 7" handguard so I didn't care.

    How'd it work before you did all those modifications? You shouldn't need to use 170mm spring in 140mm mag, the normal 140mm springs should work. And it should work fine with various recoil springs. I use the normal 140mm springs and either 15lb or 17lb recoil springs will work fine. Don't use an OEM spring with a 140mm extension though.
