  1. It depends where its hanging up. First things first, try swapping around the various springs and followers into different mag bodies which you know are good. This way you can use process of elimination to figure out what the problematic part is. Once you know the part that needs attention, you can focus on the troubleshooting and the potential fix. Also it would be helpful if you gave more info about what exactly is happening on your failure to feed. Is the bullet getting stuck on the feed ramp? Is the follower jamming inside the mag tube and failing to lift the top bullet high enough for t
  2. There are arguments to go both ways. A dovetail mount is definitely the least "preferable" of all the mounting options, but as you've learned, there are plenty of people who get a long and fruitful life out of the dovetail mount. Between getting a plate system and direct milling, there are pluses and minuses to both. In 2015 when CO was first announced as a provisional division, the only viable answer was direct milling. The plate systems were junk. In the past 5 years though, a ton of R&D has been performed and the plate systems available now are quite good with support bosses
  3. I'm just thinking of how many Pelican cases would be required to travel to a match where I was going to shoot USPSA, 3 Gun, PRS, and Sporting Clays - all in a single weekend. I'm not sure I could even fit all that in the trunk of my Civic, much less as flight baggage.
  4. Grams kits are not specifically required in conjunction with Henning/TTI/Spring basepads. However, the big advantage y9ou get with the Grams kits is his thinner follower that allows you to get an extra round in the mag. His spring is required to go with his follower. Only you can decide whether spending $20ish (per mag) is worth the extra round.
  5. It does not sound like you torqued the comp appropriately before drilling and pinning. If it's currently wobbling, it was loose before you drilled it. FYI you'll likely need to drill a new hole, because it will be rotated further once you properly tighten it. You can possibly avoid drilling a second hole if you play around with stacking shims so that when you've torqued between 20-35 ft lbs the holes line up. Also, if you don't have shims, get some. I really don't like crush washers. They're cheap, but that's their only redeeming quality.
  6. Truth. Having snow tires is FAR more important than having AWD. I would rather have a 2WD sedan with Blizzaks than any 4x4 (Jeep, 4 Runner, Audi Quattro, whatever) with all terrain or even M&S tires. If you've never driven on snow and ice with snow tires, you have no idea what you're missing. Watch this to see what we're talking about:
  7. Disc (frisbee) golf. Astonishingly fun. Meets all your criteria. Just need a couple discs, a way to carry them, and some sneakers. Recreational or competitive. Looks like 10 different courses in SA alone, plus a dozen more within a short drive.
  8. Great work and congrats on the personal best! Glad to hear that some logistical adaptations were possible to allow you to shoot the match. And sweet holster! Also, I'm amazed you're still in triple digits in mid october. That's nuts.
  9. Yup. I spend enough time training with an optic that it makes sense for me to carry with an optic as well. I've settled on the Aimpoint Acro, so there really aren't any concerns with lint, moisture, etc. I have no BUIS. It's cost me on 1 stage ever in my life, when somehow the adjustment buttons got pressed and turned the brightness down a couple clicks between "Make ready" and "Standby." I might get some low profile BUIS in the future. Maybe. I prefer an uncluttered view. The Acro isn't the ideal competition optic, primarily due to the smaller glass field of view compared to any
  10. Point of information: I'm not the match director, but I am match staff and happy to answer any questions you may have. Just post up below!
  11. If you've ever wanted to try out a Run and Gun match, there are still some slots for the upcoming "Run For Your Life" Run and Gun next month at Lucas Oil in Cross Timbers, MO. This is one of the best matches of the year, hands down. It is halloween/zombie themed with all the shenanigans and fun targets that you would expect, and a costume contest! There is a 10km option on Saturday and a 5km on Sunday. Note: There is NO requirement that you run the entire thing, or even any part of it. Roughly half of all participants just hike from start to finish. This year is a TEAM format where you run
  12. No pistol optic is immune. I have 4 DPPs, two have had to go back. I've had 3 RMRs, one had to go back. I have a Romeo 1 Pro, it works, but the "down" button no longer clicks and sometimes it fails to register the press. It's going back soon. The only pistol optic I own that hasn't had a problem (so far) is the Aimpoint Acro and I really beat the crap out of it. Very, very pleased with my purchase so far.
  13. Appreciate the response to my inquiry Sarge, but I asked that question 2.5 years ago
  14. Get a GX Products holster. Best holster on the market, hands down. www.gxproductsusa.com - not cheap, but you absolutely get what you pay for.
