  1. Been my experience that most USPSA matches are totally unrealistic. Have fun with the games while keeping your reflexes hones and your body moving. Then it won't be as hard to get back to maqtch readiness when the time comes.
  2. I have been transitioning to dots from iron out of necessity. I'm getting old and my eyes, especially at arms length, just don't focus the way they used to. It this pont, even with new shooting glasses iron sights are just a blur. I have always shot mostly on index, using the sights only in the last instant before firing to confirm proper alignment. Since the dot is higher than iron (at least on my guns) it has caused me problems because my brain still wants to go on the "old" index for iron and that put the dot out of alignment and I have to constantly readjust. It takes a lot of practice to
  3. I've said a dozen times on here (and other forums) I don't care where the dot or sights go when the gun goes BANG!. The front sight/dot could go up 3" and do a figure 8 for all I care. Two things are important to me in this aspect of shooting: 1. Where were the sights at the instant the round fired? (not 0.010 sec after) 2. Did the sights return to the original point of aim after the gun cycled. Anything in between is irrelevant. But understand this: In order to achieve a positive answer on #2, you are going to need a NEUTRAL GRIP. Tight and firm, yes, absolutely.
  4. A while back I found one of my first builds (#6, I think) in a local pawn shop. An NRA Action Pistol/Bianchi Cup .45. I really didn't need another .45 and especially not one as specialized as this. But I thought it would be cool to have one of my older builds, so I bought it. (for just a bit over what I sold it for 25 yrs ago) I was in a bit of a quandary over just what to do with it. Leave it as is, as a reminder of how far I've come? Update it to my current standards? Or do a total rebuild as something different. The slide/frame fit is still tight and smooth, but the trigger is a mess and t
