  1. I gotcha. I’m not horribly opposed to it or anything. For me (I started in production) it was better to learn the sport in the division that I wanted to shoot. Limited minor is fantastic for people who only have a few mags and want to try it, but if they want to play the game, I recommend picking one division and sticking with it typically. If they can’t navigate the stages safely with two additional mag changes, they probably won’t be substantially safer in limited. It also lets them begin classifications in the division they want so they can track progress. It’s not necessarily bad advice to start in limited minor if they want to shoot production, but it seems that everyone gives that advice. If he or she has the equipment and magazines, why not just shoot the division they want to shoot? Most local stages aren’t terribly complicated and they’ll figure it out faster. I tell them to take the training wheels off and give it a go. That’s just my two cents though... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. I really have never seen the value in this. Why shoot in a division where you’d be even less competitive? A few weeks of dryfire will make reloads easy and then you will be able to climb the ladder in production. If you want to shoot production, then by all means stuff your mags to 10 rounds and go play.

  3. Be careful relying on the witness holes in Tanfo mags (and maybe others too). Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Can anyone top 9 procedurals?

    15 on one stage at nationals this year. A really great start to the match... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Stock 2 trigger sticking

    And I’d get new mags every year. Check CDNN for mags - they typically run some good deals for the large frame tanfo mags. I replace everything when they’re on sale so I’m not worried about playing with a hammer and feed lips. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Stock 2 trigger sticking

    Lots of people buy the reduced power TRS or stretch the stock one for less resistance. You might be in that grey zone between working and sticking. I’d clean it and change the trigger return spring and see what that does. I never broke a trigger return spring in my Stock 2s and shot it plenty for four years. I don’t think they’re as fragile as it sounds. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Shooting Glasses Faq

    I looked up the Hunters Gold HD 4K 3D super glasses and they run almost $400!?!? I think clear lenses are a pretty good compromise for less than $10. LASIK is probably cheaper than the Hunters glasses. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Anyone ever Arb a local?

    Next time we shoot a local together, you’re gonna see some magic. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. I’ve had great luck with the Federal Syntech 150 and Suppressor 124 ammo in my Stock 2. Someone told me that Federal has a new primer that is less sensitive while I was at nationals. Has anyone else heard anything about that? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Shoe Recommendations

    I’ve been very happy with Icebug shoes. https://icebug.com/p/acceleritas6-m-rb9x-deepbluedkorange They’re not super popular, but I prefer them to Inov8 or Solomon. Very light and seem to hold up to a lot of abuse. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Speed of visual walk thru

    You’re probably on the right track. During the official “walk through” you might only get to run through your plan a few times, so visualization is a very useful tool. It’s probable that I don’t have the right answer, but a good stage for me usually boils down to being really focused in my visualizations and then programming it deeply enough that I’m not consciously thinking while I shoot. My visualization is usually more about detailing each step in my head and trying to be “in the moment” as much as possible. Everything from how the gun feels in my hand as I draw to where on the target I want to see the front sight. I’ve never thought about the speed of my visualization. On a stage with a higher hit factor I’ll really focus on grip, transitions, how quickly I can shoot targets... the same stuff I focus on for a low hit factor stage. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Syntech 150 gr tumbling.

    Interesting. I just ordered a bunch to shoot at nationals. I shot 500 rounds and didn’t have any issues, but most of my targets were in the 10-18 yard range. I was very impressed with the accuracy of the Federal Suppressor ammo in 124gr, but I wanted a little more weight for the steel targets. I’m shooting out of a Stock 2.

    Help me develope a dry fire routine

    When I had time to dry fire I used the Stoeger book. I usually did 30 minutes a day and spent 10 minutes per drill. Cycle through the drills to address weaknesses and something specific to an upcoming match, but try to hit each major skill at least weekly. The key for me was to make each rep productive. Pay attention to par times and push yourself each time. I would usually warm up with 4 aces every day for a few minutes to replicate gun handling before warming up. One thing that I discovered last year was the slow motion feature on my phone. If there was a specific skill that I struggled with, I’d do it a few times recording myself in slow motion then watching and working out the issues. Lastly, going through the motions doesn’t help you get better. If you’re not 100% mentally dedicated to each rep, it might be a good idea to stop and come back later. USPSA is mostly mental.

    124s or 147s in STOCK 2

    I use an 8lb spring with 125, 135, and 147gr bullets. I’ll be honest, I can feel a bit of a difference with the different bullet weights, but I don’t think it has any effect on hit factor. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
