  1. So you set it high enough it just barely touches? With the regular Sharpies I started at that and in the end the best results though still not what I hoped was to have them right down against the wheel it seemed. Haven't fiddle with the brush tips yet to make them fit.
  2. And you added some tape to the Brush tip Sharpie as well to keep it in place it appears in the photo? I haven't been thrilled with the markings I am getting from the regular Sharpies so I picked up some brush tips tonight but they as just a touch small for the large opening and o-rings. Can't find any markers locally so far the size of the Edding markers they mention.
  3. Which 15# spring and did you grind the guide rod and run it uncaptured?
  4. I'm trying to help a new shooter buddy who bought a P10F as his first pistol. First range trip I brought a bunch of my ammo that is 134PF in my Shadow and they wouldn't cycle in his gun, after a couple of boxes of factory ammo my stuff would run but barely eject. Are there any options other than CGW for springs? I would order from them but they won't event talk to Canadians so I need to find a more common source of lighter springs. Also ok to simply alter the guide rod for spring replacement and run it uncaptured?
  5. Doesn't make it paperless but we use little bluetooth printers that instantly provide a "receipt" of your stage results when you hit approve.
  6. Did you ever try the dumping rounds down the chute versus getting them as they come off the press? I'm curious as well as I usually tumble my lube off before marking.

    Bul Armory?

    The entire line on the Canadian distributors site has 5.01" barrels, no 5.4" model.
  8. This quote tells me you have pretty much zero understanding of how a relationship with a sponsor is going to work, and how it is doomed to fail if you actually found one.

    DQ event

    Thanks, used some of that as a search term and found the same rule verbatim in the IPSC rule book, just missed it on my previous search.

    DQ event

    You want to "pick nits" this was an IPSC match so the command is Load And Make Ready, unless it is an unloaded start.

    DQ event

    I normally just ask the shooter to cross his arms across his chest while the person goes down range. I also am ready the moment the range is clear and once again issue the Load and Make ready command so there would be no chance of the gun coming out prior to my command. @adamge did Martin challenge the DQ to the CRO/RM? I would suspect they would have a hard time citing the rule to up hold the DQ but now I am curious. Brings up another other issue is we routinely run two stages hot during our indoor season here, never had an issue (short of one dropped loaded gun) but I could see it being a potential for issues as well since it is not explicitly spelled out in the rule book.
  12. Keep in mind because they list stuff online doesn't necessarily mean they have it in stock as I know they drop ship from some of their suppliers.

    DQ event

    First USPSA rules are pointless as this was an IPSC match. I've seen this happen on many occasions over the years, usually not a big deal it is generally pretty clear to all involved what is going on but there is nothing in the rule book specifically I can cite that covers it, so yes by the book the shooter should be unloaded and shown clear etc. Yes the RO should have caught the unsafe action but they are human and miss stuff, the DQ after the fact when someone else weighs in is a bit dodgy. Question for the shooter, even if confused by the situation why are you taking a sight picture at an IPSC match during your loading process?
  14. Since you all seem to be using the same unit of measure could you share it? I'd like to compare my results but based on these numbers they are a different unit of measure.
