  1. When is "OLD"? I have to keep changing my definition of that, I can remember when I thought that meant that you were 30. I made a last stab at GM before my upcoming shoulder surgery and made it today with 98.67%. That will hold till Jan 1 and then it will become 93.19%. After I get recovered and back to shooting again I will need to shave off another 1.5 seconds to re-earn it again. New goal in place even if it's a small one.
  2. Looking forward to seeing you add RFRI GM*2020 and congratulations on having eyes good enough to still see irons
  3. In USPSA your percentage floats with your performance on the classifiers. SCSA is like shooting 8 100% classifiers in USPSA that never fall off. SCSA fixes each stage percentage on the best you have ever done in your life. We already tend to be over classed as it is without dropping the PST. Until the times in these newer division stabilize I really think the classifications need to change when PST changes. There would be a few get their feelings hurt if they dropped from GM to something lower but their ego would just have to get over it. it's pointless to have the title without the performance to go with it. No incentive for someone that just barely made it into GM from a few years back attending a tier II or III match if the 2020 classified A class shooters are going to whip up on them.
  4. In most cases I never used to think that you should be able to go down but as fast as the rifle times are dropping I'm starting to think along the same thing as you stated. If you just made GM a few years back you would end up an A class shooter in 2020 and that's just not right. I will still try to constantly improve and try to shoot to the absolute best of my abilities but I don't want to have a title that I'm not qualified for. I guess we will have to put an asterisk next to our classifications, GM*2017, GM*2018, GM*2019, GM*2020
  5. I had made it a goal of mine to make GM before the end of the year and I'm going to have shoulder surgery in 1 1/2 weeks that will take me out for the rest of the year so I was going to push a little this weekend to make it over the line. My current 93.91% will become 88.69% in January. I don't really want a GM title to go with a master score, this kind of messes with the goal setting if you want it to mean something.
  6. Just took the test, 98%, cheated me again. The answer was in Appendix A1.3 so following the guidelines for appendix answers I put A1 3 got it marked wrong. Always something.
  7. I just bring one of mine. One of the clubs I shoot at decided to buy new AMG timers for each of their bays after seeing how good they work. Plus, being able to just Bluetooth the time to the tablets is a cool feature. I have not had anyone voice any concern about using my timer to score our squad plus I usually end up running a good portion of the shooters on my squad so I get a vote there too. I run a monthly match and bought new tablets and AMG timers for each bay. I pair a timer to a tablet to be able to Bluetooth the time to the tablet. The combination is making my life running the match much easier.
  8. The new AMG Labs timer eliminates the need for any muzzle brake or "loudner", it picks up rifles with SV ammo and no brake just fine. No need for the extra weight on the barrel or to have to clean anything. I also tested out my rifle with HV ammo and a suppressor and it worked just fine.
  9. You can avoid any future drama with renewals by just getting a life membership and be done with it.
  10. I added the riser on 2 of my 510C GR sights mounted on 15-22's. I was finding that too often when I shouldered the rifle that the reticle was a little high in the glass. I could either fix me or the sights, I went with the sights. As mentioned, Primary Arms has the best deal and cheap shipping.
  11. I had always preferred the 66-5 to get the frame mounted firing pin and no lock. I found a great deal on a 66-7 and removed the lock and put in one of those plugs that a guy on the S&W forum was selling. The 66-7 turned out to be the most accurate of all my 66's and turned out to be my favorite. The old school S&W ladies hate the tension barrels and locks but it worked the best for me and that's all I care about for a competition gun.
  12. After my S3G would not reset in my AR-9 and I resolved that with a Hiperfire so when I got my MPX I went directly to the Eclipse and haven't looked back. I didn't even attempt the S3G in the MPX since Geissele warned against it.
  13. I have been hoping for a SD3G that worked in the MPX and they offer me a 2 stage trigger with a price gouge to boot. I'll pass. Never had a bit of issue with my Eclipse so I'm sticking where I'm at.
  14. Those are good firing pins. The 15-22 uses an inertia type firing pin, you will not have as good a hit with the Ti pin as you will with the stainless. The original type firing pins in the early 15-22 were Ti but they were not inertia type.
  15. Don't bother with the handguard. The stock handguard is about as light as you are going to get. You have to buy a steel barrel nut adapter to be able to install an AR-15 handguard so by the time you spend a bunch of money for the new handguard and the heavy barrel nut adapter you will likely just add weight for your trouble. Just be sure to buy the model with the m-lok handguard and not the quad rail version. PSA has your best deals. My 15-22 with Volquartsen barrel, STR stock, Tighten magwell and no optic is 4.1 lb. The stock is heavier than some but it has a great cheek weld and the weight is to the rear. The 15-22 just plain runs. It's only short coming is sometimes the firing pin but I'm working with a manufacturer right now to release a redesign that cures those few with problems. I see the guys on the range all the time begging their $1000 10-22's to run and they just jam. I shoved my 10-22 to the back of the safe and have been loving the 15-22 ever since.
