Finally read the FAQs

Finally read the FAQs (3/11)

  1. I've always taken twice the minimum for locals and twice plus for majors. More so when your carry gun isn't the same caliber and borrowing isn't easy due to load length, springs, blah, blah, blah.
  2. I was a little different than most. Mine came on accident. Crazy busy at work and I was barely able to do anything gun related for several months. Made it to a local (that we've shot together in your AR living days) and we ended up jumping a squad so we were in a hurry to shoot the classifier so we could jump back and not slow them down. It was Merle's Standards which is all the things I'm really weak at. Didn't even think about it just wanted to get done and move on, ended up with 100% and getting bumped to GM. Long way of saying my advice is to just shoot your game and let the numbers fall where they do.
  3. Sent the email and had a response in 10 minutes. 10 minutes!!!!! I have no words for how amazing that is.
  4. I was in that same boat running an M&P in Limited minor that was originally used in IDPA. Finally ended up getting 2 used Edges that had been Dawson CRP guns. Wish I hadn't wasted so much time waiting to pull the trigger getting into the 2011 platform. The learning curve was pretty short and I can't imagine shooting anything else.
  5. Any size comparison of these to say a stock STI plastic grip? I actually run an Extreme Shooter DVC extra small because of my tiny hands, but I tend to bind the mag from falling by squeezing the grip too much during a reload. I don't want the added weight or cost of a steel grip so these look very interesting.
  6. I use a contour roam attached to my ear pro. Very simple. Other than not being able to see my footwork and posture I do find the video useful.
  7. They are like the F-150 of the shooting world. A bunch were made and everyone has had one at one time or another.
  8. I put an aftec in mine for awhile before I switched to shooting an edge. For what its worth I had 2 aftecs break in Edge's and am now running the EGW HD with no problems.
  9. This. I ordered the Dawson drill bit and it was about as easy as anything on a 2011 can be. Dawson even has a video thats less than 3 minutes long if i remember right.
  10. I started in Limited minor because I had an M&P setup for IDPA ESP and thats were it fit. Made it to the top 20 classification list of B class. Switched to Limited Major with an STI Edge and made M in about 4 months. Shoot whatever makes you happy and will keep you shooting, wether that is chasing the heat in whatever division brings the most locally, or what ever fits your fancy for speed or accuracy, etc.
  11. I only have good things to say about my Edge in 40. It's definitely not holding me back and I doubt I'll ever be able to outshoot it.
  12. I also prefer pinning because it gives me a more solid feel, no grip safety moving around. With an unpinned grip safety my biggest problem comes when trying to shoot weak handed. My little hands have a hard time getting it deactivated and making a good trigger press.
  13. I know several local guys who have theirs done like the video above. Mine came with the pin going in the MSH and the grip safety. I imagine the way Atlas does it would be easier to do and for reassembly.
