Sees Sights Lift

Sees Sights Lift (7/11)

  1. I also live in Newberg. There are great matches in Dundee and Sherwood. PM me if you'd like to hook up for some local help. The Dundee match is tomorrow. It's full up. If you have the time, it's worth dropping by. Steve Anderson's first book is a good place start. One thing he's changed: he recommends doing a particular drill for a set amount of time. I do 3 or 5 minutes. Once you are happy with your basic draws, transitions and reloads, the other 2 Anderson books are good. I like the older Stoeger books. I need to read the new ones.
  2. I'm about to shoot something other than Production or Carry Optics with my Shadows. I've never owned a race holster. I plan to dabble in Limited and Revolver with some guns I already have. Is it possible to get a race holster that can be converted from a CZ Tac Sport to a Smith and Wesson 625 fairly cheaply?
  3. I went to the range and shot about 100 rounds weak hand. I don't think the cant helps. I just need to learn to work the trigger properly with my weak hand.
  4. Those are for baseball on "Astroturf".
  5. I have very wide feet. My normal shoes are various styles of New Balance size 13 EEEE shoes. I've been using some size 14 Boombah Hellcats. But they are still a bit narrow. Has anyone used some baseball shoes like these? I shoot on gravel. When I don't wear aggressive soles, I've slipped and fallen several times.
  6. I can shoot 7 yard free hand with one ragged group. I can shoot strong hand to 2 inch groups. My weak hand groups are about 6 inches. I can't seem to hold the gun steady and my trigger control sucks WHO. I do daily dry fire "groups", FS, SHO and WHO. WHO isn't has good as the other 2. But it's not nearly as far off as it is live. I may be flinching and the misses tend to be low left ( I am right handed.) I don't flinch with the other grips. I am an almost super senior with some stiffness in my left elbow. The gun going off doesn't make my elbow hurt. Holding the gun up for a long time does make the elbow hurt. I shoot CO with a Shadow. Any ides on drills to improve my WHO shooting?
  7. When I started action shooting, shooting Production, I was trained to cant the gun, particularly for support hand shooting, to get the sight in front of my dominant eye. I am not cross dominant. I now shoot Carry Optics. I shoot both eyes open. if the dot is in front of my face, the bullet goes where I want it to go unless my trigger press sucks. Are there recoil management or trigger press advantages to canting the gun with one hand? I was a solid B shooter until work and real life got in the way. I'm now a retired C working my way back to B.
  8. I've spent most of my USPSA shooting time shooting Production. I'm almost a super senior and I use glasses that have my dominant eye focused on the front sight and my other eye focused on infinity. I switched to carry optics and I use glasses were both are focused on infinity. That works great when shooting. But I don't get a clear view of the magwell on reloads. Should I get glasses with closer focus for the non-dominant eye to see the magwell better?
  9. Thanks. Cases are extracting from chamber but not ejecting from receiver.
  10. I have and M&P 15-22 with about 500 rounds through it. It goes "bang" with every type of 22LR I feed it. But the the only ammo that extracts reliably are the high velocity CCI. Mini-mags and Stingers have been flawless. Aguila Super Extra and Remington Thunderbolt fail to extract 1 round in 4. Is there something I can due to tune it to run well on non-CCI ammo? I have buckets of it.
  11. I have a cheap Barska spotting scope. At 60 power, the optics are good enough to see 223 holes out to 300 yards. This is plenty for me. I don't shoot that far very often. The problem is that the eye box is such that I have to lift off my safety glasses to see through it well. The eye relief is too close to the eyepiece. I tried adding a mount for my iPhone 7. That didn't work. I'd like a scope/iPhone mount combination to use for 223 out to 300 yards where the combined cost is <$200. Help please.
  12. I want to dry fire when the rest of the family is sleeping. Even with my Pocket Pro 2s on minimum volume, it wakes people up. Is there an iPhone app that can make the beep go to a bluetooth ear piece so that only I can here it?
  13. JP hand guards seems way heavier than it needs to be. I want reliability. But shaving weight would be nice. I have a 14.5 in barrel with a pinned comp. I'd like something near full length. Recommendations?
