    In the ear electronic plugs

    Did the need a prescription from a doctor to cover them on insurance? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    In the ear electronic plugs

    If you are looking for something reasonably affordable I just got the Peltor TEP-100 set and used them today for the first time. They are not as good as amplified muffs which do a better job of helping you decipher sound directionality (where the sound originated), but I could hear the steel ring with them and also hear conversation well enough. They were also better than foam plugs for hearing the leading edge of the timer beep. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    3 Shadow 2s after a season of shooting

    I sold out but am planning a new batch with the modification you mentioned, so it should be good for the polygon barrels too. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Best PCC trigger?

    Good point. I run a Taccom Extreme bolt with barely any lube, so it doesn’t attract all the crap that a wet AR does. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Best PCC trigger?

    If your PCC is “gunking up” that much, I strongly suggest you evaluate what you are running through it. I’ve run close to 20k rounds through mine with several different powders and only clean every 2-3k rounds without issue. It even continued to run with little chunks of brass under it from a round that blew apart. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    2011 rimfire pistols

    Here’s a buddy’s Marvel running CCI Mini-Mags, and as you can see the comp is working well! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. I’ve never needed more than ten, but this last weekend I borrowed a S&W 627 revolver and shot OSR for the first time at the Area 2 Championships. Before I shot my buddy gave me a brief instruction on staging the revolver cylinder between shots, but while trying to go fast I couldn’t get the feel right and kept breaking the shot between the plates. I had to reload for the first time ever on a string on Pendulum so I could hit the stop plate. I should have been counting rounds and just skipped the plate before the stop as the 3 second penalty would have added less time than the reload. I gave up and just shot old school to finish the stage without any more reloads. All that being said, I had the most fun shooting revolver since I had no expectations and didn’t know what a good string time should be, so no self-imposed pressure!

    Black Friday/Cyber Monday Specials for PCC's?

    I picked up two CMMG 9mm firing pins for $7.50 each from JSE Surplus! Yeah, I know it isn’t exciting but it’s a good deal when everyone else wants $15 each. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Alliant Sport Pistol Load Data

    I loaded some 100gr .356 lead round nose projectiles with WSP primers and 5.2gr of Sport Pistol for my Taccom ULW PCC upper (5.5” barrel) and averaged 136 power factor with it. It was a little snappier than I normally like, but it cycled very fast for double tapping paper. I will probably drop down a bit to 4.7gr which should put me around 125ish.

    Rimfire Rifle Build

    I would never use a two stage trigger for speed shooting, period. I use a Kidd trigger job kit (not to be confused with their full trigger group) and their spring set which gives me a super short pull, smooth 1.5lb trigger break, and ridiculously short reset which makes this rifle extremely fast. For me, a quick 4-5mm pulse while maintaining normal finger contact throughout the stage is much faster than slapping the trigger. I haven’t beaten Trenton, Kolby or Cole yet, so until then my opinion may not mean a whole lot so take it for what it’s worth. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. It is exactly the same as a new frontier armory lower, so anything that fits it also fits your ATI. I typically recommend a hiperfire 24c trigger, Cmore Railway red dot with a dot module corresponding to your chosen discipline. For steel challenge and USPSA I prefer an 8moa, but for multigun I like a smaller dot that doesn’t cover up the target at 100 yards. I prefer the JPSCS or the Blitzkrieg hydraulic buffer. Check with Bmiller on this site the for the mag funnel he makes. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Their top end trigger is very nice and can be sent as low as 6 ounces if I’m not mistaken, but that I think is a little too light for our game in steel challenge. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Yep. The Giselle and Hiperfire triggers are great, as far as AR triggers go, and even my cheap Velocity and my POF triggers are pretty nice, but again, nothing save maybe a good 1911 trigger can touch a good 10/22 trigger. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Nope, not even close. Have you shot them side by side in comparison? I have, and they aren’t even in the same category. A $110 Kidd trigger upgrade kit and $8 spring kit will give you a lighter trigger than any of them could ever hope for, shorter take up, shorter reset, and smoother trigger pull. It’s really not even close. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
