    My apologies, it was wasn't Safariland but Bladetech. Bladetech used to have the spring loaded hood dont carry it any longer. Again, apologize for the misinformation.

    Folding target stands

    PVC stands are okay, cheap to make and replace but you will shoot them too pieces. Just make some put of scrap wood (for base use 2x4) and 1/2 x 1 vertical posts. Easy to assemble/disassemble and easy to move. Takes a beating before you have to replace. Cheap!!!!!. Drill holes and use 6" stakes if you wish. Had mine for over a year and they have been shot to hell and still work.
  4. King Competition. Foreign owned company, so prices are in euros but far surpieor to magnetic caddies by the more familiar manufacturers. Holds firm and releases smooth. Look them up on the internet. Good s**t.

    Rachet for ELS Belt?

    Carbon Arms buckle is the way to go. Easy to install and easier to use. I pulled a shoulder muscle trying to tighten by belt without it! Awful. Lol.

    Red Hill would be a good choice, probably just have to get used to the release action. But when I tired it at Rockcastle Pro-am there just isnt much room between the holster and the belt. Awkward.

    I still cant find a level 2 holster, spring release for a 6 " STI. Red Hill tactical has a hood but it isnt spring loaded/released. Safariland used to have one but ever since new management took over, all their things have gotten screwed up. I tried G-Code but that wont work either. I am about to just give up and sell my 6". What a pain.
  8. Thanks i really appreicate it.
  9. I am looking for a holster for a 6" STI sight tracker with a butler cut. I would like to have a thumb release as i shoot 3-gun and like that peace of mind. Bladetech used to carry one but they don't anymore. Thank you in advance.

  11. I have a Benelli M2 and the bolt will stick back. When this happens the lifter is frequently in the lifted position and all I have to do is grab or nudge the bolt handle. I was reading the description of a shotgun for sale and it stated the fix for this problem was performed but I don't know what that fix is. Any help will be greatly appreciated. I have attached a couple pictures.

    Help Needed - Benelli bolts sticks back

    Just so you don't think I am crazy. The pictures I posted was just after a practice session. When I started the session the shotgun was clean.

    Help Needed - Benelli bolts sticks back

    Thanks Jade. I am pretty good about cleaning it but I will again very thoroughly. I have ordered all the springs to replace so maybe that will work. Thanks for the advice.

    Help Needed - Benelli bolts sticks back

    The shotgun isn't very old, maybe a year. Whatever the problem there is a fix as several packages for shotguns mention it but I just can't find out it is. I will try the above suggestions.

    Help Needed - Benelli bolts sticks back

    Yes I have shot it. It runs majority of the time. The only time it doesn't is when this happens.
  16. So, I was at local 3 gun comp this past weekend, basically a club match. There was one stage that was majority shotgun. You had to hit a popper that activated a sliding target. They set it up so the shooters had to move to one particular shooting location in order to hit the popper. He popper was beside a plastic barrel meant to obscure the popper, forcing shooters to shoot from the prescribed shooting spot. However, from one particular location a portion of the popper, and I mean only a slight portion of the popper, was sticking up above the plastic barrel. By shooting from this location it would have saved a lot of time and put you in a better position to hit the moving target. We asked the stage RO if we could shoot the popper from the more advantageous location. He acted slightly shocked and initially said yes but then said if we shoot the barrel and made it move at all he would call a procedural. My question is this... Can he arbitrarily make it a procedural because the barrel moves? It wasn't stated in the stage description that it couldn't be hit. It's almost like he got offended because we came up with a smart way to hit the popper. Just wanted to know your thoughts and more importantly the rules around this. Thank you in advance.

    Short barrel rifle

    Have a question about the legality of a short barrel rifle and can't find a specific answer on the net. I have a 10.3 inch upper with no comp on the barrel. I have a certified approved suppressor that is 6" long. While I am waiting for approval for my short barrel rifle can I put my suppressor on it, brining the length to the minimum 16" without pinning and welding the suppressor? I have been TOLD the only reason they pin and weld is to prevent someone from easily removing the break, becoming an instant felon. I don't want to pin and weld my suppressor but I don't want to break the law either. If someone can point me to facts and the law on this I would be greatly appreciated.
  18. Did I miss registration for the 3 Gun Regional events? I haven't seen or heard anything. Thanks in advance.

    Holster for STI 2011

    I am looking for a holster that has a thumb release or a finger release for a STI 2011 5" full dust cover. I was shooting with several people today and one had a holster with thumb release and one had finger release on the under side of the pistol. I didn't get a chance to ask them the brand. It doesn't need to be that exact configuration but need something with good retention as I shoot a lot of 3 gun. Any suggestion would greatly appreciated.
  20. When do you anticipate registration opening?
  21. Has the 3GN regional events opened up for registration yet?

    Holster for STI 2011

    Any good recommendations for a 3 gun holster for a 6" STI. I just got a 6" site tracker and need something for three gun that won't come out when I run. Thank you in a advance.
  23. Okay, I need help from all you sharp, smart marksman out there. Sorry if this is wordy but I want to be as accurate as possible. I have three AR-15s that I primarily use. They are: a JP 18 with a Leupold Mark VX 1-6 multigun with AR gold trigger; a JP 16 with vortex razor HD Gen II with a AR gold trigger; and a 16 Daniel Defense with a Leupold Mark 6 1-6 and a Timney trigger. I have never zeroed any of these at a true 200 yard target, always approximated by utilizing a 50 yard zero. Well, this awesome range opened up near where I live, CMP of Talladega with an electronic target system with targets at 200, 300 and 600 yards. I shot my JP 16 first and a got a grouping of 29.9mm at 200 hundred, which 1.177 inches or 0.589 @ 100 yards (pic below for all rifles). I then shot my 18 JP with a grouping of 37.6mm @ 200 or 1.48 giving me 0.74 @ 100 yds. Now to the Daniel Defense. All these rifles are suppose to be MOA or better. Obviously the JPs performed great, especially since I have no idea what I am doing. But the best I could do with the DD was 255.4mm or 10.06 @ 200 yds or 5.03 @ 100 yds. I just dont get it. Is it possible the triggers could make that much of a difference? The JPs are approx. 2-2.5 lb pull and the timney is more like 3.5+ lb. I know it is a difficult question given all the possible variables but any advice or input would be appreciated. One more detail; all the rifles have approx 1000 rounds through them.

    Sight in problem - Need help!

    All the ammo I use is factory. Today I used all federal 55gr. I wish I could reload but I simply don't have time. Probably would save me a bunch of money though.
