    I would shoot every match if I could, but with a wife and kids I only shoot 2-3 matches a month. I'm an A class Limited shooter, shooting a CZ TS. When I'm out with the family we are either skiing, mountain biking, or going to a local skatepark.

  1. A cr123a battery is 17mm diameter. You can get 6" long, 11/16" [17.48mm] diameter brass rod on Amazon for $30. Someone could get 4 full battery size weights from that. Maybe there are 3V buttons batteries that could go on top so you could replace both batteries. Not something I care to pursue, but it would be interesting to try different weight combos.
  2. I'm not naive at all about this, I've been shooting USPSA since 2014 and I've seen a ton of changes. *Yes, by USPSA I mean the Pres and the people who are in real leadership. USPSA isn't a democracy and it doesn't sound like they have ever sought formal input on these changes. They are going to do what they are going to do. My attitude is, if they are headed somewhere particular, let's just get there NOW. Or from your perspective, "rip the bandaid off fast". *I've never heard the justificiation for the divisions as being different price tiers. *Arbitrary restrictions, l
  3. I dont think you would actually want 7.5 oz added up front unless you are doing a lot to balance it out.
  4. If everyone hates the constant change, then how about a "war to end all wars" type of huge sweeping change, to where things are settled and where USPSA really wants them to be in 10 years? I personally think they are heading in the right direction, allowing magazines and attachments that people outside USPSA are already using. We've been racing out our pistols in every single division for years, and we know that the recent changes won't do anything to the end results. They will, however, improve the shooting experience by giving shooters more [better] options on setting up their belt,
  5. 3.77 oz, with regular batteries
  6. I think the best cheapest route would be a knockoff that takes the fat cr123a batteries, like the x300, and then doing something tricky with the batteries, like one real battery and the other being a lead or tungsten weight of the same shape. As long as it conducts electricity, the light should still work. I can't imagine Lok putting this into production for less than $200, especially if it lights up. They'd make more money creating a battery shaped weight. It could be put into production way faster.
  7. Hi, it was about 3.5 weeks. Typical of Aliexpress.
  8. My <$30 X300 from Aliexpress showed up yesterday. I haven't handled the real deal, but everything about this item looks top quality. And yes, it works, very well. I made the mistake of looking right at it and it temporarily blinded me. You could buy two of these to have one as a backup. I don't expect to have any issues with mine though, long term reviews of these knockoffs say that they continue to hold up.
  9. I shoot and I mountain bike and I will say, You could win USPSA nationals with a barely modified or unmodified Glock, but good luck winning a mtb race on a perfectly reliable old bike with no suspension.
  10. As a shooter with ADHD, I'd say it hurts more than helps. The need for high level stimulation is the whole draw for the sport for me. But hyper-focusing usually leads to not seeing the bigger picture of what you are trying to do in a stage to be competitive, slowing your progress. You need to be mindful of a dozen things simultaneously to put down a good stage plan, and hyper-focusing will inevitably leave many of those things out. Sometimes important things will be left out, like "Where is the 180?". I had to shoot USPSA for a long time before I started to get comfortable and familiar e
  11. I imagine some people at USPSA HQ suddently felt a 'disturbance in the force' when this thread was started
  12. If you want an X300 for the weight, get a knockoff for $35 from aliexpress.com
  13. I'd like to epoxy an LED light onto a brass magwell for my WML. Even if it didn't make a funnel, it will make the ideal grip more repeatable and puts weight in the ideal spot on a polymer pistol. Tell me why I can't.
  14. Limited 10 doesn't need to exist just in case of a ban. There is no Open 10 or PCC 10. Or CO 10. In states with bans, everything is 10 rounds. If we ended up with a National ban with no workarounds, everything would be 10 rounds nationally.
  15. Thanks! $10.83 with Amazon prime. I'm looking forward to trying it!
