  1. I have a few friends that prefer the Shadow over S2. It's all personal preference. The different frame is what made me prefer the S2 and I loved having actual checkering on the gun. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
  2. I sort of did the same. Started with an m&p for a year or so, bought into the steel gun hype, shot CZs the last few years up to GM, and now I picked up a 34 a few months ago and am debating dropping my Shadow 2s. Another local GM also dropped his CZs middle of last year for a Glock. One of my best friends, whose an even better GM, has always shot Glocks outside of about a 6 month stint where he tried to like a Shadow 2. There's pros and cons to each, but I think the heavy gun thing is just hype for the most part. If you're good enough you can win with just about anything. Look at Nils stomping people with a $400 Canik. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
  3. I got a tungsten guide rod from Glock Store. Not the super thicc boi, but the 2oz one to stay within Production division weight. Really like how it shoots and returns with a 13lbs recoil spring. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
  4. My opinion is that for most people a heavier steel gun covers up some errors in fundamentals. It's easier for most people to shoot a heavy 9mm more accurately. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
  5. Thanks for the info. I'm hoping to get some of those mags this week. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
  6. Limited requires a minimum of 40 for major. You could technically shoot 9 major from it in Open though if you're brave enough. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
  7. The frame on the TS is larger than a Shadow 2 frame. You can adjust thickness through different grip panels to your liking. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
  8. So in your opinion for competitive activities those who do better in the competition should not get better prizes? Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
  9. Isn't that how competition usually works? Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
  10. It's simple. Either you or your delegate walks. If nobody is there for you then you don't get anything. I'm also completely fine with no prizes. Give it all back to the staff or just don't have anything and reduce my cost. I can't say I've ever shot a major because of a prize table. I'm there trying to win and beat other good shooters that I may not get to regularly compete against. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
  11. If you're gonna do prizes I think the only fair way is straight order of finish for the division. Have a prize table for each division and populate them based on participation. You can recognize class "wins" with a plaque/trophy. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
  12. For anyone curious here's the financials for the last GA state match held at my home club in 2016. We ran half day with staff reset. The match fee was $135. Profit and Loss Statement.pdf
  13. One of the other big reasons I like staff reset is for consistency in how the stages are run which leads to better competitive equity. Shooters resetting are generally the reason for problems with props not being set properly or targets getting pasted early or not pasted at all.
  14. It's true. To run a half day format correctly you have to have enough staff. No way around it. When do well I've found no better way to shoot a 9-10 stage match. GA did it well in 2016, NC did it well in 2017 and 2019. We're planning to do it again next year for GA state.
  15. Over the years one of the things that I find myself consistently placing above other things for majors is staff reset. The best experiences I've had at majors have pretty much all been staff reset matches. I'd happily trade some of the other features to have that. And for 1 day matches offering a half day format.
