  1. 115 front and 100 rear over a 7” sight radius. Blue loctite on every visible screw and strain screw. Then I mark the screws.
  2. You’re well on your way. A 320 on option is a strong number. Keep pushing those numbers down there, it will come.
  3. Today’s match numbers in speed option: Speed Option ISR 11.68 3.28 3.12 2.70 4.14 2.58 OSR 10.91 3.40 30 2.55 2.53 2.43 Both guns started very poorly, but because I kept going hard at that pace I came out with good final numbers. If I would have looked at the first two strings with either gun and decided to throttle back to get hits, the times wouldn’t have looked anything like that. ISR only had 1 clean string, but that’s still a better overall time than if I would have fired 4 clean strings to begin wi
  4. I think you should try shooting option at a 2.75 pace and see what happens. All 5 strings. Don’t adjust depending on how any of the other strings went. If you adjust your “ bottom” it moves your normal. I shot option tonight. Personal best at worlds was an 11.65 when I was shooting comfortably. Looking back through my notes it looks like 260-265 was a pretty common practice number, which gives a mid 10s bottom. I adjusted to shooting a high 230 to low 240 pace, and it makes that mid 10 number seem much more realistic. I think if you adjust your pace to 2.75ish, i
  5. Warning: long, boring technical post coming. That’s how I’ve always shot it- turn in some clean ones and then turn it up. The numbers say turn it up from the beginning and the outcome will be the same or better. Now, you can turn it up past useable, that’s not what I’m talking about though. Lets talk numbers. I’m a very numbers heavy person. And let’s talk roundabout. I’ll use my own numbers (mainly because I don’t know anyone else’s numbers) as an example. I can shoot 2.40 clean 3 out of 5 times, and at that pace a pickup costs about .60.
  6. It’s an interesting math problem. It’s always fastest to shoot clean, but if you aren’t shooting at a pace where you can miss, you aren’t winning. I don’t think anyone should shoot at a pace where they get all their hits every time. Emptying the gun on every string isn’t going to set any records, but shooting without misses won’t either.
  7. In the past I’ve always been 930-950 but this year after some testing I bumped that up about 100fps. I found a few hundredths because of it in some really odd places, with no downsides that I can find. I have both 96gr and 115gr .358, but the small bullets and my bullet feeder don’t get along, so I’m sticking with 115s for now. I think I’m on the higher end of velocities compared to other revolver guys that have posted low scores. I’ve seen some bullets that look like they could be handled with a good catchers mitt.
  8. Actually I think you can be just as fast on a string with either a heavy or light gun. I don’t think the weight differences are enough to actually matter, but if a person thinks it does then that needs to be addressed. I do think that a lighter gun makes long practice sessions, live or dry fire, much more bearable. Easier on the shoulder and elbow over time. Steel ammo in my uspsa/icore guns is hilarious though. I think it’s important to have a dot/gun combo that works for each individual person. I also think you should build that gun and load to keep the dot in the window.
  9. I’d probably still be shooting a 327JM for steel if I could get the gun to be consistent. I seemed to have issues with the scandium working during temperature changes- when it was cold I’d get light strikes. I’ve had several others over the years that all worked fine, so I’ve somewhat just chalked it up to that specific gun. Now that I’ve got 929s down to R8 weight, I’m going to stick with stainless guns.
  10. Who did this work? I’m assuming you put it into a K frame?
  11. It’s an easy task for a machinist. Mill off the factory front sight and install a base from Bowen. Probably an hour at a machine shop with a 1/4” end mill and tap.

    I just can’t get used to that DAA for steel. I used it for 3 years before switching to a Hogue Powerspeed. I can hit the gun so much harder now from surrender. i like the DAA for field courses where the draw doesn’t matter as much and the smaller holster is nicer to spend the day with- I just couldn’t draw as hard from it.
  13. I have a swinger. And I dry fire it in my yard. I had something rigged to a motor a few years back to prep for world shoot, it was all I could manage on short notice back then.
  14. The mass driver takes the useable weight in the hammer and moves it up to hit harder- almost the opposite of the centerfire hammers. It’s specifically for 22 rimfires. There’s been debate for years about chopped factory hammers compared to aftermarket spurless hammers. I have shot and owned plenty of both, and both can be fantastic guns. While I do think that chopped factory hammers look unique these days, the Apex and TK options look better with the guns, close up the debris hole (which isn’t an issue if you maintain the gun.) Aftermarket hammers provide the option for p
  15. Yes, last to first. Josh does a 2.50ish right there and he’s won everything.
