  1. Sorry I thought I edited the post to add it. https://www.instagram.com/joshbresett/?r=nametag
  2. They're fantastic. You can see some videos on my IG. All the latest ones are the AimCam. https://www.instagram.com/joshbresett/?r=nametag Pros: great quality, battery life, usability, durability, and you can point the camera right where you want it. Cons: the FOV is a little smaller than other action cams, the glasses are comfortable, but ear pro must be plugs. They're superior to pivothead glasses by far.
  3. Are you sure it's not the cases getting stuck in the cylinder?
  4. Just double check my "math" here. https://www.midwayusa.com/product/754435/swenson-slide-with-vortex-venom-burris-fastfire-3-red-dot-sight-cut-glock-17-gen-3-9mm-luger-stainless-steel-melonite It appears to be an "aftermarket slide of the same length, contour and caliber as the original slide for that model of gun." And the non-OEM stippling seems allowable by this rule: "A slide may be modified specifically for the purpose of installing optical sights or cocking serrations. Textured finishes, grip tape, milling or stippling on the slide to provide texture is also allowed. Cuts designed to specifically or significantly lighten the slide, such as holes, are allowed."
  5. I have had sub-second draws for A zone shots at 15 yards in DA. That doesn't mean I have a consistent sub-second draw, which I think is where the claims start to fall apart. You can't count on the stars to align for you on every stage. I find I shoot a much better stage if I get a positive firm grip out of the holster. First shot is only one out of 8, 12, 18, 32, etc. There are so many times that you don't even draw directly to an target in competition that the metric is practically worthless except as a measurement of your own progress. 1.7 isn't bad and unless you are losing each stage by .2 seconds, I wouldn't sweat it. That being said, you likely have an inefficiency in the draw somewhere, most of us do. Try to break it down into multiple par times and see what's happening. Are you reacting to the first tone of the beep? Are you waiting for your weak hand to come to the gun? Are you searching for the front sight? Are you not getting to and the gun out cleanly?
  6. The 147s won't pass the plunk test in my SP01 at 1.15" oal. Otherwise they shoot great.
  7. It's very much dependent on club because what you're talking about is the way IDPA was shot for years. You do still have to identify positions of cover. Options aren't hard in IDPA, and I'm not talking just go right first instead of left. Stage design is just lazy.
  8. That's just bad stage design. The descriptions used to be a a reading on procedure, now they should be, here's the start, here's the fault lines, good luck. That being said, I have shoot plenty of USPSA stages we're there's only one way to shoot it. Maybe one target could be taken from two positions. But at the same time, there are definitely much much harder stages to game plan in USPSA. Just because there's no plan to truly follow unless you create it yourself. In IDPA you know you have to stop and shoot, but potentially remember a few targets you engaged elsewhere.
  9. Were there paper or other targets that were within 2 yards relative to your position to the nearer group of poppers? If so, and you hadn't engaged them yet, engaging something within 2 yards beyond the first set of poppers could incure a penalty. If they were set close enough for a miss to hit one, you shouldn't get a penalty based on reasonable doubt.
  10. Actually it looks like the X-Caliber is a cone style barrel. So I guess it doesn't matter.
  11. A bull barrel is not a heavy or cone style barrel. The website says bull barrel.
  12. My MC did that too, really smooth then a sudden stack at the end. When I first got it it went back to Ruger because the trigger would bottom out and stick because the timing was off. They took a little off the top of the pawl and sent it back. It helped that, but I feel a little more off the top would help, as what's happening is the cylinder is still pushing against the latch in the last part of the trigger stroke. I should probably send it back again and also have them polish the cylinder as cases do not drop freely.
  13. The best thing we did to make LAMR/USC better for the PCC is to have the SO hang onto the chamber flag then help put it in when the shooter is done. Other than that, some stage elements are more difficult to manuever with the rifle, but otherwise it's all pretty much the same.
  14. Ruger GP series respond well to polishing and shims. I put a slightly lighter trigger return spring in it, and with the hammer strut springs I have one on a separate strut that I go lighter on and only use Federal primers, and get a 6.5 to 7lb trigger. The other one that sets off CCI and everything else, including magnum primers, gets me an 8.25lb trigger. Still a little stagey, but it's smoothing out there too.
  15. The Sara Spa Rod and Gun Club in Greenfield, NY (a few miles outside of Saratoga) is hosting a sanctioned IDPA match for the first time in ~15 years, and registration just opened this weekend. Battle of Saratoga - IDPA Tier 3 - 2018 11 stages (2 low light/no light), 180 round count, many guns and other items coming from sponsors, this is going to be a great match, and we're very excited. If you like pop ups, lean outs, clamshells, charging targets, steel, swingers, cascade, drop turns, and lots of options for shooting stages, this is a match for you.
