    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, hiking, or going to a local skatepark. I'm rleightonc on instagram.

  1. This is good news, thanks everyone! I'll give them a try. It would be a bonus if they help smooth out the finicky priming on my Lee press. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  2. I'm not sure I'll be able to find my go-to Winchester primers before A3. Should I be concerned about my single action pistol lighting off CCI primers with a 21 lb hammer spring, if I took extra care to fully seat the primers? It would be nice to know that I can use any primers I find in stock. From years of reading the forums, I've come to believe that CCI primers cups are made of depleted uranium, or shavings from Thor's hammer.
  3. When switching to Limited from production, you need to be prepared for the increase in hair on your chest. There will also be a sudden increase in the number of clear blue sky days, twenty dollar bills found lying in the street, and ideal parking spots left open in every parking lot you enter. And I'm happily married so I have no experience with this, but I hear that single Limited shooters don't stay single long, usually pairing up with an Eastern European fashion model, the kind that walking down the street leaves behind them a trail of stunned shaken men & the faint scent of Chanel and cigarettes. You are also going to start having to buy brass and pay more for bullets. So the pros and cons kinda even each other out. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  4. In my case, I'd be driving far further to buy One Shot from a store. And if a different, more readily available and cheaper lube worked better, I think that's worthwhile information. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  5. Thanks Sarge, I saw that post months ago and for the life of me couldn't find it again through the search function. Has anyone else tried the RV dry lube? That poster states that silicone is the ingredient you don't want, can anyone else verify? The MSDS sheet for One shot doesn't list the lubricant type, and neither does the Liquid Wrench RV dry lube. The MSDS for the WD40 dry lube says the lubricant is petroleum based.
  6. Also, I've tried the J-ames bullets. So far they are cheap, reliable, don't lead, but they are the first bullet I've used that is noticeably inaccurate. I've used BBI, Bayou, Precision, and Brazos and all were basically the same in accuracy, to the point that I thought the idea of load development for accuracy in pistol was a waste of time. But 1.25" groups at 13 yards though my canik with a red dot became 6" groups with the J-Ames. I'll have to dig in to the issue more, but I've learned that not all bullets are plug-and-play.
  7. Certain profiles have to be loaded extremely short to drop anywhere near flush in an EGW 7 hole checker. So I'm not sure that is relevant data, if the rounds plunk test fine in your barrels. The black ones' thin coating looks similar to Black Bullets International coating to me, which I have used in the past and never had a problem with leading. (The only company I have seen sell that particular profile with the double lube groove was Brazos, IIRC). For our style shooting, I think the only real considerations are: reliable feeding, accuracy, price, and if they lead your barrel. Brazos gets high marks on the 1st 3, but leads all my 9mm barrels horribly. But in .40 they are great on all 4 points, so you might find in regular shooting and cleaning that the cheapo bullets are totally sufficient.
  8. I also use the Harbor Freight steel digital calipers. They have worked perfectly for years and like Memphis Mechanic said, completely sufficient. I prefer the digital to the dial style that I would use for woodworking. With digital you can switch to metric when needed and check sizing on gun parts, etc.
  9. Folks, Has anyone tried WD40 Specialist Dry Lube, or any of the other non-gun-store spray lubricants or dry lubricants as a case lube? It seems to me that One Shot has to be some other common lubricant packaged for Hornady. Lubrication is a special science, so I doubt that Hornady developed it on their own. Just like Lucas Gun oil is probably one of their other oils sold by the quart at a fraction of the price but with some green dye added, but that's another discussion... I'm not interested in mixing up my own, BTW.
  10. It seems strange to me that we have this concept of a "paper GM" when naturally understand that there will be a spectrum of skill levels in all the other classes. The difference between JJ or Christian and a newly minted Open GM is about the same difference as an A shooter about to move up, and a newly minted A. Which can be a big difference. So why would making 95% be fundamentally different than the approach to finally getting to 85% or 75%? Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  11. The paddle holster the pistol comes with seems like a quality bucket, but the fobus style paddle attachment sucks for lots of reasons. The hole for the inside snap, and the single factory screw line up with 2 of the 3 Bladetech holster mounting holes. The factory screw is super stout and easily makes up for the 3rd screw. Drill out the snaps and mount her up. This is mine mounted on a DOH hanger. In a couple days I have a Aandabooks ebay aluminum hanger coming that should work the same way. If the click retention seems too strong, the nub could easily be filled down. Also, this is only for Righties. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  12. So the blue factory feels like higher than 14 lbs? Or less? Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  13. I have the blue factory reduced power RSA and it cycles 100pf steel challenge ammo. I'd like to further tune the pistol but has anyone been able to tell a difference between that RSA and a 13lb springnon an aftermarket rod? Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  14. The holster my tp9sfx came with seems like it could be usable just fine for USPSA, with modification. The spring for the retention knob is a little stiff, I feel like I could easily modify that. And the paddle style hanger could be cut up to just retain the nut and plate around it, and what's left could be attached to a boss hanger or similar. Anyone tried that yet?

  15. I know you posted the above a while ago, but I want to make sure I'm clear on something. If you take apart the stock Canik guide rod assembly, you can use what brand Glock Springs on the factory guide rod? Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
