  1. I like jesup skate tape. I tried the 3m tread tape but didn’t like that is sheds material. 3m is also a coarser grit which would chew up my hands when it was new.
  2. Get the case feeder and a frankford arsenal primer tube filler
  3. Permits are issued by the county sheriff or the police chief of a city over 200k population (it might be 250k). Most rural counties and some of Southern California issue to people with a clean criminal record. If you live in the Bay Area you need to be law enforcement or Nancy Pelosi. No matter what county it’s issued by, your ccw is good for the entire state. It’s surprising but California has fairly unrestricted ccw laws. Welcome to the forum!
  4. I’ll throw my vote in for slide glide. I don’t have to re apply between cleanings and it doesn’t get my shooting glasses dirty. We use so little lubricant in a firearm that for $10 you get a multi year supply no matter what you use. Buy a few different lubricants and see what you like
  5. How often are you getting a failure to fire? You need to recover a round that doesn’t fire to see if the firing pin is hitting the primer. I would remove the firing pin, clean the firing pin and clean the firing pin channel. If you have calipers measure the oal of the firing pin to see if it is within specs. If your gun is from cz custom it should already have an extended firing pin. You might want to try replacing the main spring with a #13 or #15. If if you are using reload, switch to factory ammo for a bit to rule out ammo from the equation The slide not locking back could just be your grip holding down the slide stop.
  6. Only break the shot when you have an acceptable sight picture for the target difficulty. Mikes, no shoots and make up shots tank your score. Spend some time figuring out what level of alignment and sight clarity you need for various ranges
  7. If you go back to a fiber rod use super glue to hold it in. You won’t lose the fiber optic again
  8. I guess it lost some features with a new update or isn’t well supported for by the newest version of iOS. When I hit the play button, it switches to a stop button and resets the drill
  9. I just got the dry fire timer on my iPhone and can’t fogure out how to pause a string. When I hit the stop button it stops, but restarts the drill from the first string. The app I got is the one with the classic target as a logo. Is there a way to set multiple par times per string?
  10. On the forums you probably have a solid third of the people claiming a sub one second draw, but at a match you won't see those times. People like to remember their best times. If I set up an open target at ten yards where only A hits count I would be hitting 1 second after a few attempts, but on my first run I bet I would be pulling off a 1.2 or 1.3 draw. https://practiscore.com/results/new/26882?q_result=5&q_division=2 Stage 6 of 2016 nationals was a draw to one shot. I think it was a ten yard popper, but I'm not sure. Only 22 shooters were under a second. A 1.7 second draw gets you 138th on the stage. The draw is more important to your overall score in steel challenge so I'm sure more shooters would be under a second at a steel challenge match. With a 1.7 second draw you are probably moving unnecessary body parts during the draw and over aiming when the gun is on target. Watch some videos of top shooter drawing and then film yourself. They will just move their arms, you are probably moving everything. I would bet that any reputable dryfire routine will get you close to a one second draw in under a month. Five days a week 15-30 minutes per day of practice no distractions and setup is not included in the time. Get ben storeger's dry fire book and follow one of the training plans.
  11. My shadow barrel is identical to yours
  12. For once fired brass $20-25 per 1000 to your door is a good deal try to get primers for $30 per 1000 Powder depends on the brand, but get 8lb jugs and buy from the same place you get your primers so you can combine hazmat and shipping For bullets decide if you want plated, jacketed, cast or coated. A deal on powder or primers will save you a few tenths of a cent per bullet while a deal on bullets will save you one to three cents per bullet. Compare prices on bullets as this is where you biggest savings will be
  13. I thought about that but I'm not sure how permanent that would be. I'm going to try adding a thin washer behind the plastic spacer to see if it takes up some of the extra space in the pouch. I don't want the adhesive on the velcro letting go during a hot summer day. I like that the cr speed pouch is cut low and doesn't cover much of the magazine, I just can't get it tight enough to hold my magazines.
  14. I ended up getting the pouch onto my belt by widening the channel with a file. After all of the work to get it on my belt I will be taking it off because my magazines don't fit consistently in the pouch. I have the cz spacer in the pouch and my mec-gar magazines fit tight, but I can't adjust the pouch tight enough to hold my 18rd sp-01 magazines.
  15. I bought one cr speed versa mag pouch to see if I like it before replacing all of my pouches with them, but can't get it on my belt. I have a double alpha belt and it feels like I would rip all of the velcro off of my belt if I slid the mag pouch on. I can't even get the belt started. Am I missing something or do you just slide your belt into pouch and hope your belt doesn't get ripped apart? Before anyone asks, yes the set screw is backed out.
