  1. I run 2 cups of 9mm brass at a time. I haven't looked at whether speed makes a difference.
  2. My worst stoppage problem on my 650 is that about 3 times in 500 rounds a case is fed primer up. I see it most of the time. But correcting is annoying. What are likely causes and how do I fix it?
  3. Having a stage with multiple options, that aren't mistakes, adds to the fun. It makes me happy to have to think more. This is one of the reasons why your matches are so good.
  4. I need to see if I can talk him into this.
  5. He needs to shoot a match that his Production dad and CO brother shoot. He’s going to borrow my PCC for a first match and go from there.
  6. I took a friend of mine and his two adult sons to the range last week. I had 10 different handguns for them to try. All are now interested in action shooting. Dad wants to shoot Production. Youngest son loved a dot gun and wants to do CO. The oldest son loved shooting my S&W 625. I can help Dad and one son with semiautos. But I only have a 625 so that I can show newbies how a revolver works. It's fun to shoot, but I don't have time to practice with it to get good and use it in ICORE. What is a low cost entry level kit for USPSA revolver? The 2 revolvers I see people use in USPSA are 627 and 929. Always a performance center or other heavily smithed gun. These things are near $1500. Is there anything OK competitive that could be entry level price? You can get a very nicely set up Production Glock for $800. (I can't believe I said that. I'm a CZ guy and spend way too much money) I assume a standard USPSA belt is fine. Is a basic Blade-Tech holster OK for starting and buy a race holster later? What's the right clip rack for a 627 or 929? I assume I can find a thread on what clips to use in here someplace when I get that far. Is the 929 a better starter gun for a new guy on a budget? Decent 9mm ammo is cheaper than 38 special and way cheaper than 38 Short Colt.
  7. For a friend who is cost sensitive.
  8. I've been shooting with a Boss hanger for years. I have seen other types of solid hangers at matches. What do people recommend as an alternative to the Boss for Production and Carry Optics?
  9. I'd like to use Springer base pads and the Grams springs Springer sells. CZ pads fit. Do i need the ones for 17 round mags or 18 round? I expect it to be the 18s.
  10. I just picked up a PCC and I intend to shoot it in USPSA occasionally. If you were going to start practicing for USPSA Pistol, I'd practice a normal draw, a surrender draw, a weak and strong hand draw as well as a turn and draw with hands at sides and surrender. I'd probably do some kind of table start. For PCC, I think I need some kind of low ready strong and weak shoulder, a buttstock touching belt to strong and weak some kind of port arms and a table start. Am I missing something?
  11. I know you break in AR15 barrels for maximum accuracy. I don't expect that's needed for a PCC. But I have a JP 9mm out for delivery to my FFL today and I want to make sure I don't mess it up.
  12. If you can afford to shoot, you can afford a chrono. You can get a full Caldwell set up for $135 on Amazon. For $85, you can get one to set on a table or barrel.
  13. I should go shoot some Bill drills. Still, it feels unlike any of my other guns.
  14. I shoot 7000 rounds a year from a CZ Shadow and another 2k a year from various other handguns. With major 175 pf 45 or 135 pf 9mm, I can't feel the delay in the slide for any guns but my 1911s. I have a Dan Wesson Heritage and a Springfield Range Officer. For both of them, it seems like I'm waiting for the slide to cycle before I can make follow up shots. I doubt that is actually true. But it sure feels like the the slide is taking a long time to cycle. Is this just a feature of 1911s? Is something wrong with them that I can fix? If so, how do I fix it? I suspect that a heavier recoil spring is the way to go.
