    Guide rod dimension help please!

    Hi Guys, I have a project gun here, a SAR9, that I think will be a fun sleeper production pistol. The top end is EXTREMELY gen4 glock-ish, and I need to get an appropriate rate RS into it. At the shop when I picked it up, we tried a g17 RS in it and it was about 1/16" too short to touch & stay in place. Can you guys look at these dimensions and tell me how this is different, if at all, from standard glock? I used to shoot a g35 gen4 in limited with a captured jager guide rod. Before the jager I had a lone wolf rod with adapter and it caused all sorts of issues. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk

    FTF issues with g22

    I've seen grip cause this. Possibly have a good Limited major shooter shooter see if it has any issues for him in your ideal configuration. I could be very wrong, of course, but it's very possible. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk

  5. Hi all, Anytime I meet someone who owns guns, likes shooting, has a carry permit, etc,, I always talk to them about USPSA and encourage them to try it out. They never do. It's weird, as I'm telling them about how much fun it is, they often have a look on their face that shows they are thinking "yeah, that's cool you enjoy it but I have zero interest". I really don't think it's me they don't want to shoot with, or that I'm making a poor pitch for the sport. I send them youtube links and how-to-get-started links, thinking that will surely get them interested, but no. Anyone have the same experience? Anyone given this any thought, with a conclusion more insightful than "they are too intimidated"?

    Vortex Venom cannot zero - not enough elevation

    Raising the rear of a sight that is 1.5" long by .02" should have raised your poi 12" or so. If you had no change at all, something is super weird. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk

    Cleat Recommendation

    I would get the typical footwear for sports played on the same surface you shoot on. Here in Colorado, its mostly hard gravelly surfaces. I wear soccer turf shoes in the summer, they are incredible for grip, yet have a rubber bottom that grips wooden stage props just fine. Not as comfortable as trail running shoes, but I'm fine with it. Cleats can get clogged with mud just like anything else, and the kind of cleats that are really good for mud would be hell on your feet in the dry areas, I think.

    TV/Monitor based dry fire

    search for "ipsc dryfire" on your youtube app on your roku or whatever. There are a bunch of dryfire videos that will give you a warmup. The distance of your transitions will be small, so there is a limit to how helpful these can be.
  9. There is probably a simple answer here, but why would a pistol be on the IPSC production list and not the USPSA list? Do they have different requirements, or is it just a matter of the manufacturer needing to submit to both governing bodies? I'm thinking specifically of the Sarsilmaz SAR9.

    Division progression

    Theres a big difference between figuring out the division you really want to be in and changing, and just switching divisions all the time. No one is advocating for the latter. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk

    Front Serrations on TSO (Lack of it)

    I added grip tape to my slide in front of my rear sight so that my hand wouldn't slide into my rear sight. Mine racks super easy with a worn-out 10 lb recoil spring. It's not really an issue. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk

    I dont have a p10c, but I just saw this on Instagram, a new release from Henning. Seems totally ideal as a base pad. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk

    Division progression

    I recommend moving divisions as soon as you know you'd rather be in a different one. It will be hard to make progress with a pistol you'd rather not be shooting, in a division you'd rather not be in. If you are having fun, you'll be more likely to apply yourself to your performance. If you are shooting production and already feel inclined to move to a high cap division, go for it. All that reloading will make it harder to learn the speed aspect of the game, imo.

    CZ Tac sport value?

    So, is it essentially the waffle-checkered frame that they have discontinued? I ask because that's what I have now, and if I were to ever have a open gun in the future, I'd want it to have the exact same frame. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk

    Opening up SP-01 internal magwell?

    I'm glad I saw this! I already did my trigger guard (which is essential imo), and now I have a fun dremel project for the weekend. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk

    Walther new steel frame competition Q5

    They are doing the win-for-walther program for Limited, so one would assume that they will make the Pro model in .40. But, no indications of that yet. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk

    Tell me why this is stupid

    Tell me why not: An open pistol made from a suppressor ready p09 or sp01. Screw on a comp, add a magwell, attach an optic mount like this [see attached pic] to the rail, and start shooting 9mm major Open. No one ive seen does this, there must be a reason. The local heat is increasingly in Open and it would be fun to he able to play with those guys. I'm cheap and I have no interest in a 2011 open gun. The ideal would be an open gun set up identical to my TS, but spending that much isnt in the cards. I'm just toying with the idea. I shoot with the M class guys in Limited, so I'd rather not shoot something that would have serious deficits. That said, some people are convinced certain things (like a glock in limited or production) are handicaps when I dont believe they are at all. If this isnt dumb, what route would you take and why? I like the idea of the p09 because if its inherent accuracy &just because it would be extra weird, but I've never shot one. Meanwhile I do own a fully cajunized tristar sp01 clone that I shoot well but it feels too small. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk

    Walther new steel frame competition Q5

    I love the idea of this gun. I really think if you were to list the things we want as comp shooters, this is the kind of thing an outside-the-box designer would come up with. An ergonomic grip. Same light trigger pull every time with short reset. Steel frame for soaking up recoil. FO front sight/ adjustable rear. As my friend pointed out, the only thing left to tune is the recoil spring. If this thing performs as we expect, I hope it is a huge success. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk

    Anyone have a membership at PSTG?

    Well, The "pot, meet kettle" comment actually does bring up an issue with some bearing. People are deciding where and to whom to give their money.
