  1. Shay had a few of them on his display guns at nationals, I like them. You get real deep in the beavertail on them should be a great helper with consistent and high strong hand placement. Texture is also great. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. [emoji115]This Just be aware of your thumb with lowered cr speed pouches. I’ve jammed mine a few times since the pouch is close to the bracket on those. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. I choose them specifically for the double layer models. It’s ultra stiff, and when paired with a good hanger there’s no snag. The front cut height is perfect for getting the muzzle out as quickly as possible, yet enough to positively retain the gun. Can easily match the speed of a race holster, and in my case I exceed it. They inspire confidence in a hard and fast presentation to a target. Best of luck! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. I think the special editions were advertised as a little longer wait time since they build all their guns in batches. Probably had to wait to get all of them sold first, but I could be mistaken. Sorry to hear about your bad experience with them though. Best of luck with whatever gun you end up going with Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Does anyone think that with the advent of CO and PCC, that the less popular divisions need to be gotten rid of? I’ve heard this argument from both sides, and have come around to liking the thought of CO, although with the original 10 round mag rule I thought it was stupid. My thought process right now is that there’s not enough participation in SS, lim 10, and revolver to take the “heat” out of the more popular divisions, so just leave it be for now.

  6. Civilian legal lasers have a mW limit that prevents most injury to eyes. They may experience temporary blindness with extended direct contact. I highly doubt a laser aiming device would put any legal liability on the user with a justified shoot. And even in the case of not having to shoot, the laser would be considered fair warning that if the actions of the assailant were to continue, deadly force would be applied. If you want to temporarily blind someone in an armed conflict, a laser wouldn’t do a good job. A high output light will Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. I think Stoeger is one of the only people to have them in the US so far, if not maybe a few people. He talked about them on his podcast, had his done by Practically Perfect Performance I believe. I’d check them out or call and see if the polymer poses any limitations or significant differences to the steel frames for action jobs. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. If you’re using it for hunting, 6” all the way with some doubletap ammo. I wouldn’t sacrifice velocity if you’re not concerned about concealing it. Just my 2 cents. Enjoy your new blaster! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. I ran springer single stack hangers for both ss and limited at nationals last year since it was back to back and wanted to keep everything identical on the belt. Worked awesome for the ss, but the limited gun was a tad heavy for it. Still worked, but wasn’t stiff enough for my liking. Quality machining though on springer’s part Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. I’m sure a nice slice of humble pie will stop the self-inflicted ego battle. I experienced the same thing when I first started USPSA. The ever popular “I just got my ass whooped, so I should probably shut up and listen to these people “ situation. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. I wasn’t sold on the double layer idea until I saw them at area 8. No flex, no snag, exactly what I wanted. I’m faster out of one of them than any race holster I ever tried, especially with the BOSS mount holding everything in place. Now I’m a lifer for RHT lol. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Our local group is more of a “tough love” kind of help. If you f@ck up or do something dumb, someone better than you will tell you that you did, straight up. Surprisingly no one has thrown a hissy fit over it yet that I know of, even with all of the sensitivity out there. The new shooters learn quickly to watch the better guys/gals (the ones I’m still chasing in the standings), and get an idea on what to do and why to do it that way, and it works out for everyone in the end.

  13. I get about the same, but my hundo is much tighter than my chamber, so anything that doesn’t fly in the gauge goes into the practice ammo bin. That system has worked for me so far, and I don’t have to throw ammo out. Best of luck! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Dumb me just decided to work through it. When my support hand started bleeding, I practiced strong hand only. When my strong hand bled, I did weak hand only lol. Now my hands are just one giant callus. I definitely couldn’t be a hand model lol. Anything to numb some of the sting while your skin is toughening up would probably be a good idea. Best of luck!

  15. Matt Hopkins came up with a great transition drill on the corner of a wall where you engage dots in different sequences. Once you learn exactly how much it takes to get from wide dots to close dots, etc. you can really begin to work with your body to get the times down. And your mistakes will become increasingly apparent, but you will have the awareness of how to fix them (ie. flailing the gun without a specific spot to drive the sights to). Best of luck!
