  1. Another thing, on a 1911 style pistol with a standard extractor you should never, never put a round in the chamber and close the slide on it. The gun is designed to feed the round up and under the extractor. That is at least part of the cause of your extractor being loose.
  2. Go with the McFadden. You will love it!
  3. This was a great PCC match! Fun stages and A LOT of challenging shots. Which I believe is what a PCC match should be. Plenty of options also. Thanks a a lot to Matt and all the staff. They worked their butts off.
  4. Very true! You might want to break the stage down into 3-4 sections. This usually make it easier to memorize the stage.
  5. Matt. I have been contemplating driving out to shoot the match even though it is over a thousand miles. The only problem for me is that I am reluctant to sign up for the match and then not be able to attend because of issues beyond my control. I understand the reason for the policy on refunds of match fees but these are very different times right now. As it gets closer I will see about entering. I would love to shoot this match!
  6. Many years ago several gunsmiths tried putting a 9mm barrel in a 40 slide. It was hit and miss, mostly miss! I think just about everyone decided it was not a good option. Regular 38 super case rim is much closer to the 40 dimension so that conversion would work.
  7. 2-10 round and 2-19round should take care of almost any stage.

    9mm major

    Silhouette. Probably around 6.0-6.2 but work up your load.
  9. Can't really understand the negativity on this topic. Like he just said some like them light and some like them heavy. Use what you prefer but don't knock the other guy because he wants something different.

    Let's see. Clinton assault weapons ban, Obama's election, Sandy Hook and now corona virus. Some call it hoarding and some call it being prepared. I went through it with the Assault Weapons ban and decided I preferred to be prepared.
  11. No need to apologize. It happened only in a preload area with a RO right there. Once you were loaded and ready you had to stay at the preload area. No one was allowed to walk around with loaded firearms until the RO called you up to the stage.
  12. All firearms were loaded to capacity with a round in the chamber, safety on. Then we went to the line and were ready to go. Very safe and as far as I know there were no issues with this process.
  13. The only place I know of where we got to shoot an entire stage in a cave. Unbelievable!!
  14. Used shock buffs many years ago and experienced some jams saw many more caused by the buffs. Haven't had a shock buff in my guns for over 20 years.
  15. Just my 2 cents worth, and probably not worth that much! i have found that the biggest factor is finding the bullet that your pcc likes. My pcc likes Montana Gold 121 and 124 HP. Others have told me not to even try 124 HP because they are not accurate. Seating depth has not shown to be much of a factor. Plus we are limited by the mag dimensions.

    Getting Old

    It certainly does!
  17. Very informative! Thank you for the insight. You are right that having to miss a match or two just isn't that big of a deal compared to what we may have to face in the near future.

    Getting Old

    I have come to the conclusion that there are 2 good things about growing old. Grandkids and retirement! All the rest of it..........
  19. Yes you are, in open division. And you can probably get higher capacity mags.
  20. This!! Stop the bounce and that helps with broken screws.
  21. Ok! My tiny little hands and I will certainly keep that in mind.
  22. Haha. I only said it has worked well for me. Not that I'm any good. It certainly is not the glasses or the Infinity's that are holding be back!
  23. This is exactly what I did many years ago and it has worked very well for me. Takes about 15-20 minutes for my eyes to adjust to the glasses when I first put them on.
  24. One reason is because of case capacity. Not able to get enough slower powder in the 9mm case or if you are able it is very full and messy to reload.
