  1. Stupid question but I have the same backpack and want something bigger, just wondering if you went through the same and if so what you bought?


    Thank you,


    1. jc3257


      Went with a smaller range bag. Found the backpack too big for most matches. Keep a large competition range bag in the car with everything else I may need.

  2. I have 2 CK Arms pistols. A Hardcore in 9mm I use for 3-Gun and a a Thunder in 40 S&W for USPSA Ltd. I bought both used but in fairly new condition. I have also handled but not shot a Atlas Titan. The CK’s are what I would call a semi custom pistol. Well built, good fit and very reliable. Excellent choice for middle of the pack competitors wanting a little more for their money than an out of the box STI. I did a little trigger work on them to get them where I want them. The Atlas gun was much more refined and customized. Smoother operation and already fully tuned and ready to rock. But it costs $1,000 plus more then a new CK and should be more tuned. If you can afford it, I would go with the Atlas but if yo need to save some money, CK will take you where you want to go. I have no experience with an Akai. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  3. I use them for my SS 1911. Tried Blue Bullets but they caused some issues. Have had zero issues with the Xtreme 200gr. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  4. As an owner of an older 3-Gun model, I agree with@TonytheTiger. Buy one from TTI or RCI or other reputable gunsmith. About the same cost but much better result. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  5. I have two Sig 1911 Max’s. One in 45 the other in 40. Both are great guns for the money, run great. The only issues I’ve ever had where user induced or ammo related. However, if I was to buy another I would look at Dan Wesson’s and some of the new Springfield’s. Sig comes with a 6lb trigger pull and a series 80 never really gives you a great trigger. I would by a series 70 next time just to get a better trigger pull. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  6. I’ve shot a lot of it without any issues. Mostly 40 S&W. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  7. I had the same problem with my .40, replaced springs and followers with Grams. Problem solved. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  8. 3-500 depending on how much time I have. I usually only work on it for 1-1.5 hours including loading primer tubes, loading and chamber checking? I use the Shockbottle 100 round case gauges. So all rounds are checked. Adds about 10 minutes. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  9. I run a Sig Max in 40 and it runs like a champ! With a little trigger work, it is hard to beat for $1,300. Tim Herron ran one in 45 for years and recently started shooting a Atlas Gunworks in 45. I'm sure it is great but 3 or 4 times more expensive. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  10. I have 2, 40 & 45. Great guns for the money. I've done a little trigger work by polishing and bending the leaf spring to reduce the pull to about 3lbs. Hope you enjoy yours as much as I have enjoyed mine! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  11. Excellent advice! However, if your insurance agent doesn't understand the risk and how the policy will respond, you need a new agent. As an agent I will only confirm, we are agents of the company and do not control their checkbook! Many insurance companies will try to avoid paying claims if they see a way out and the potential claim is large. That is when we let the the attorneys and the courts figure it out. I've seen companies try to deny claims they should pay and pay claims they should have denied. Make sure you have a good agent and they put you with a good company! And have a good attorney on speed dial! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  12. I think that will carry weight in court however the insurance policy will look at payment to see if was a business endeavor and therefore excluded from coverage under the homeowner policy and hence excluded from the excess policy (umbrella). The certification may hurt the argument for the RO. Certified and compensated may be two strikes! How hard the insurance company will fight is usually influenced by the size of the lawsuit. No easy answers I'm afraid. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  13. Peter the fish is correct, your homeowner policy will respond first and then a "umbrella" policy. Most people call it an umbrella but is really an excess liability policy that follows the coverage on the underlying policy (i.e.; homeowner policy) Not many companies sell true umbrella policies anymore. As long as you did nothing intentional to cause bodily injury to someone, your policies should respond. The only thing that I see could cause an issue is if you are paid vs. a volunteer. Then the lawyers will decide how the policy responds. Is free match entry payment? What about a major match where the host club pays your hotel bill...etc. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  14. I have a Sig Max in.45 and love it. The trigger needs a little work as it comes out of the box around 6lbs or so. I use it for IDPA CDP. No malfunctions from the gun in a year of shooting it in practice and matches. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  15. Match was great fun. Thanks Jake and all the staff. Continues to be one of the best run matches I attend.
