  1. Is this something that comes with the powder check or is it a separate purchase? Thanks for the picture - make things clear.
  2. When this happened consistently the cause was a relatively loose shell plate - once I tightened it enough the problem was resolved.
  3. I called Dillon about this, but they were not able to address my issue. I am not able to install the Dillon Powder Check (Stock Number: 21044) on the 1050 properly (station 6) - I know this has to be an operator error. I just can't figure it out and I hope that someone here can help. The black rod on the powder check does not contact the base (the are that the shell holder sits in). Can someone help (pictures would be perfect) Thank you in advance.

    Replacing Dillon press.

    After around 80k rounds I sent my 650 to Dillon because I could not fix it's issues - it came back like new. I put through it over 7k rounds in three weeks. Worked like a charm. I dedicated the 650 to loading .45acp (single stack USPSA) and bought a 1050 for my 9s. Good machines backed up by a good company.

    Focus: Sights or Target

    I have to focus on the front sight - that's what allows me to call my shots. As you get used to it, you will be able to shoot better faster - if you have to take head shots, you will not need to slow down as much to be more accurate. That's what works for me.
  7. Here are some pictures from Handgun 1 (Fundamentals of marksmanship): http://tylerfirearmsinstruction.net/Gallery-Handgun-1.aspx Looking forward to Handgun 3 (Fundamentals of movement)
  8. I took my second class (Handgun 2) with Keith Tyler two days ago (Sunday) - it was great - so was the first. Keith started teaching again. He has been praised in several posts on this forum for his shooting and teaching ability (http://www.brianenos.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=23836&hl=keith+tyler#entry430305) His prices are very reasonable and his ability to pass on his knowledge is impressive. If you are in the Portland, OR metro area and you're looking for some solid training contact Keith Tyler - his websites is: http://tylerfirearmsinstruction.net/

    Speed is just a number

    Slow is smooth, smooth is fast. Focus on proper technique and don't rush it. Good things will start happening to you.
  11. Welcome back to the game indeed. The match director at my club comes up with challenging stages - extreme fun
  12. My primary competition gun is S&W 1911 PC. My primary carry gun is Springfield 1911 Range Officer (or TRP. or SW 1911 E series. Or one of the other 1911s)

    Weak hand grip

    +1 Nimitz Thumbs don't have a role in the proper grip.

    My first DQ last night.

    I got DQ'ed on the first stage of my first IDPA match... After loading the gun (make ready), I holstered it without engaging the safety - RO looks at the gun in my holster and told I was DQ'ed. Never made that mistake again.
