  1. Im interested to try a dot. It seems most people have trouble irons-->dot, but less an issue the other way around. Conceptually it seems like it should be easy to adjust to a dot, but I haven't tried one yet.... How long is the typical learning curve? I assume the index is the most important.....followed by clear target focus.

    Moving to CZ?

    I started shooting Wilson/Baer/STI 1911s and thought the triggers were awesome. I shot them well and enjoyed a heavier gun. Then I went to a CZ TSO which also has an awesome trigger and is heavier than the 1911s. I found that even easier to shoot than the 1911. That said, I’m selling everything off and going solely to Glock.....most likely a G19 in carry optics. I’m never going to win a match, nor is that my goal. I do not (and will not) put in the time it takes to climb to the top of a local match. I do think ( if my technique/grip is correct) the Glock will be VERY similar to those other guns with me as the driver. I really don’t believe the weight/trigger/sights has a huge impact on speed or accuracy for any given shooter. You have to adapt to the pistol you shoot. You will shoot every gun to your skill level. More practice, better results. Less practice, even an infinity won’t help.
  3. I like this idea a lot. Throw a stock gun (G43, G48, G19 etc....) on the table. Bring your mags, ammo, holster, and run the stage. All my carry guns are stock except the sights, but it’d be a level field if everyone shoots the same gun.
  4. Should’ve stated: I shoot a CZ TSO in limited. Carry a g19 most of the time. Sometimes a 642 w/crimson trace, or a Wilson CQB. Debating if I should shoot a glock in the games, but I figure shooting skills will transfer well enough given the extremely low probability I’d ever need it.
  5. This topic may be outside of the usual rhetoric here, but I’m interested in the responses. I typically respect the posters here as “shooters”. The forum is focused on the skills required to handle a pistol with speed, efficiency, and accuracy within the rules of a given game. Most guys here are more skilled and have a great deal more rounds on their guns than other sites, IMO. Tactics are not often discussed outside the “rules”. What do you guys carry? Do you run a heavy Infinity double stack in limited but carry a 642 stubby? Do you CCW at all? Do you consider running a specific platform because it’s what you carry, or is that an afterthought? I have conflicting views on this, and would like to hear some opinions. Thanks.
  6. Thanks Rigger! That’s helpful info for a 1050 newbie. Can you clarify the bolded part.....did you mean to say the primer slide should NOT be straight under the tube, but slightly past it? This is the one thing I haven’t checked yet.
  7. I can. And I’ve seen dot torture. Is that a better thing to do?
  8. I’m gonna head to the static range tomorrow since I missed USPSA range time today due to weather. What can I practice at the static range (no draw/movement allowed)? Im thinking groups at 25yds is the most beneficial. That said, how should I practice? Uspsa target? Should I make dots with a sharpie or just shoot at the blank target? How fast do I shoot? Just take my time and shoot the best groups possible, or at least shoot 1s/shot?
  9. Ok, the consensus is overwhelming....I just need to get more reps to know exactly where the gun is. I get a good grip 90% of the time, but I still have plenty where I miss. I do have the Stoeger and Anderson dryfire books, and I’ve read Brian’s “Fundamentals of Shooting”.....just gotta put some time in.
  10. Thanks! I will check all these things, but the machine is basically brand new. Bought a couple months ago and I’ve only loaded 500 rounds total so far. The mag tube and blue tip are brand new (you guys sent a new one this week since the old one welded itself in the blast shield) but I will check them. I probably do need to adjust the white wedge a little closer to the case, but the shell plate is rock solid when I push on it.
  11. I will accept 1/100 flipped primers with the rd-100.....I’ll just pull those rounds. I do NOT like the press crushing primers or putting them on sideways. Not sure if the rf100 is related to that, but I don’t think so.
  12. I actually JUST did this last night. Only ran through about 25 rounds like that, but hopefully it will help. Thanks
  13. Thanks Mike. I know I need to spend some time with the primer filler....I haven’t fiddled with it enough yet, but I am running the rheostat on low. The 1050 cranks out very consistent ammo and is great to use when it’s running, but I feel the same way as you right now.....fixing a small problem every 50 rounds is taking away from the beauty/efficiency of the machine.
  14. I’m new to USPSA.....just shot my first match two weeks ago and had a blast. I didn’t do too bad for my first one, but obviously have a lot of room for improvement. Ive been practicing dryfire, and feel like the initial grip on the pistol is crucial. I figure it may benefit me to look at the gun during the draw rather than target. I feel this lets me nail the grip immediately and it takes only a split second to snap my eyes back onto the target. Any opinions on this? I noticed a lot of experienced shooters keep their eye on target through the draw stroke, but I assume that’s because their muscle memory is on point. Thanks .
  15. I’ve been loading on a 550b for the past 7 years and decided to upgrade to a 1050 since I recently started shooting USPSA. The 550 has been great, and I experienced zero problems after >25k rounds of .45 and 9mm. I recently bought a 1050, RF100, and mr bullet feeder to load up .40 for limited. The press and rf100 have been great, but I’m definitely not over the initial growing pains of getting them set up. Main problem seems to be primers.....both the primer filler (running about 2/100 upside down), and multiple problems with the press(crushed/sideways primers) .....including one that lit the tube off! Dillon sent replacement parts free of charge btw....great company! The problems seem to be inconsistent, but repeatable, and I’m not sure what I’m doing wrong. Mainly the primers are getting jammed in the primer slide sideways. I’ve been using Win sport and Win once fired brass. Any advice here? Thanks (I have some pics but it says file size is too big to post them)
