  1. Well thanks for what advice you tried to give me, and I really appreciate it if you are genuinely trying to help me but it's funny you say some of that because I got a lot more compliments by more people on my accuracy today than I ever have at any other matches. If you told them in person that they were only complimenting me because they were even worse shooters than me, they would laugh at you, probably all day. Those guys are way better than me, and I know that isn't saying much since apparently I am a very poor shooter, but what I mean is they are very skilled and scored way higher than me today. Since they were actually there at the match watching me,I trust and value their encouragement and advice more than somebody on the internet who's never even seen me shoot. They had actual helpful tips for me, and talked to me with respect. I know you might say, or be thinking that you didn't have to be there, the scores say it all... and sure, if you think that then you are entitled to that opinion and I'm not going to challenge that. I posted this thread for advice anyway, not to argue. I honestly couldn't care less if some people say my accuracy is horrible, and I don't doubt that they really believe that is the truth based on their own expectations of what it means to be a good and accurate shooter. Again, I posted a thread seeking advice to help me improve and yet some people can't resist posting some really rude comments just telling me how bad I am . Just to be clear, I'm not singling out the last person who posted either, I'm talking about comments by a few people on here. I appreciate instructive criticism but when people decide that they would rather sandwich that with sly and condescending remarks. I can do without it. Just so everybody who wants to post more comments on why I am a poor shooter, I know this already. I know that I need to work on the fundamentals. I know that my shot's aren't 100% accurate all of the time. But obviously I am capable of shooting very accurately judging by the caliber of the many talented shooters that tells me so. If anybody has any other comments that doesn't just tell me how bad my scores are,or that I need to learn how to hit the target first, or that I need to work on my fundamentals I'd appreciate that advice. If you have a rude, mean, or unhelpful thought, please keep it to yourself and don't post it on my thread. Thank's to everyone who actually provided some helpful advice. I really want to keep this thread professional, and I had to keep my cool and refrain from using much stronger language in response to some of these comments.
  2. https://practiscore.com/results.php?uuid=8489D621-B172-453F-B5B0-AF2FA1492A42 Here's my scores from today, turns out it wasn't a steel challenge. They messed my scores up on the first stage, they got my name wrong lol smh that's def not my scores and you can just tell by looking at it compared to my other ones. I surprised myself getting 8th in production on stage 3.
  3. I have my third USPSA competition coming up in a few weeks and would like some specific advice how I can improve my scores. Here are links to my scores from my last match. Name is David Crosley ii and I shoot Production Minor with a Glock 19 g4. Main page for Nov. Match score https://practiscore.com/results.php?...4-EFCF030739D5 Overall score in Production I placed 19th out of 25 :/ Overall combined I placed 57th out of 80 Combined Class leader score was 7th out of 23 (U class) To make it easier to find me on the individual stage scores I've listed my placement below. Production score: Combined score: Stage 1- 17th/35 55th/80 Stage 2- 17th/35 52nd/80 Stage 3- 17th/35 52nd/80 Stage 4- 15th/35 50th/80 Stage 5- 21st/35 66th/80 Stage 6- 19th/35 61st/80 I still don't fully understand the scoring system and am just trying to find out what I should try to improve on. Speed? Accuracy? Both? Any feedback from you experienced shooters would be highly appreciated.

  5. Yea that's what I was thinking, I wanted to keep the 19 stock and mod the 34 for competition. I already put a gen3 trigger bar in the 19 (gen4) along with a minus connector and some competition springs. I left out the 4# striker spring because when paired with the heavier comp trigger spring, the trigger safety does not re-engage after the trigger resets. I plan on putting all stock parts back in it and maybe putting those in the g34. Thanks for the response
  6. I have just started shooting USPSA and will be shooting my 3rd match in a few weeks. I've been shooting my Glock 19 each time but have recently considered buying a g34. I know the most important thing above all is practice, and I already get plenty of that with my 19. Should I just keep shooting the 19 for a while longer or should I just go ahead and get the 34 now since I will most likely end up with it anyway? I want to get better to reach the next level in skill and know that this is something that I will continue to do for a long time. I am also aware that a new pistol means also buying some more mags to compete with it and another holster, but if it will help me improve my game it will be worth it.
  7. A guy on Armslist offered to sell me his Glock 34 gen3 for $525. He said it has about 400-500 rounds through it claims that it has never had a malfunction. It may be an older one due to the moon shaped cut on the bottom of the frame where the mag is. Should I buy it? I've never bought a used gun off somebody, let alone somebody I didn't know but the price seems good. I was originally planning to buy a new gen4, but wouldn't mind the gen3. Thanks
