  1. It is an odd shape. Contact J&L Gunsmithing on Facebook or call (757) 567-5993. He has a deal with a company that makes them. I got my Pmatch and holster from him. By the way, my Limited Pro fits that holster, but the Pmatch doesn't fit the Lim Pro Bladetech holster.
  2. Jim Jones at J&L Gunsmithing. I bought the holster and the gun from him. (757) 567-5993. You can also reach him through his Facebook page.
  3. I thought an accidental discharge was a DQ in USPSA? I've seen people flip and catch and stick their hand in front of the muzzle to catch it. I've seen new people muzzle themselves doing a "press-check" of a short barrel firearm and I've seen the turn over into the hand method of catching their round. I'm not risking either my hand or the match to either look cool or save 10 cents (assuming I can't find the round). Sadly, some SO's are looking for stuff to DQ you on and will call stuff you came close to, but didn't do. Then again, I'm risk adverse.
  4. A little late now, but next time, you might want to consider using adapter plates, sort of like those used on the Glock MOS series. They would be a lot cheaper than welding it up every time you want to try a new optic and far less risky.
  5. I mailed out 49 lbs to them on 5/21. Their site says they weren't accepting anything postmarked after 5/22, but I haven't heard a word from them yet.
  6. That's what I meant by issuing a warning (nothing official)...tell them they were close. I usually pull them aside after they are scored.
  7. If the RO is absolutely sure of what he saw, then no argument. I've seen a lot of RO's make that call from weird angles, where there is no way they can be sure. If I'm not sure, I will issue a warning. Loaded or unloaded doesn't enter into the decision for me though.
  8. Couldn't fit it by trimming the baseplate...but.... For those of you that bought a SA mod 2, 4" for CCP, I confirmed last weekend that it will fit in the box, though very snugly, with a CZ-75 metal base-pad on the magazine. They are available here for about $3 each. http://gregcotellc.com/cart/cz-factory-mecgar-magazines-c-173/
  9. Both my CCP gun and my BUG were outlawed by the new box. Both weren't very far off, but both wouldn't fit. Today, I started playing with magazines and have them very close by grinding on the bottom of test magazines. My bug was a Taurus Millenium Pro (don't laugh...at least too hard). I believe that will fit in the box after I ground the pinky rest off the magazine and push it all the way into the gun (past where it normally rests). The XD mod 2 was only about a 1/16" out after pushing the mag all the way in. I won't do a sanctioned match with either until I get my hands on an Official box, bu
  10. Anybody have any good ideas about making the Mod 2 4" legal in IDPA? It's down to about a 1/16" now.
  11. Jim Jones is a Tanfo gunsmith. He runs J&L Gunsmithing in Chesapeake VA. http://jandlgunsmithing.com/
  12. No one in a squad wants to hear that, unless he is doing it for a specific audience. I never hear trash talk except when three or more of them come together. Most of those guys need someone else to show them how to shoot a stage, since they don't spend enough time thinking about it. If you can get a majority of your squad to agree, go ahead to the stage CSO and explain the problem and suggest he be called first on that stage (and every stage until he stops). The trashtalker shouldn't have a problem showing everyone else how to do it right?...since he is obviously superior to everyone else
  13. why did it go click? Racked the slide during load and make ready, then holstered. Mag was fully seated. A round, maybe 8 down was stuck, so no spring pressure on follower. I started the stage empty. You lose a lot of time figuring out what is going on. Press check is cheap insurance for me and now acts as part of a starting "ritual", which helps my jitters.
  14. I didn't do it, until I went click on a stage. Now I'm pretty religious about it. I'd rather have the funny looks than the extra seconds..
