    STI grip question

    I have small hands and I really like the Extreme Shooters DVC extra small, enough so that I'm gonna have to get one for my backup gun because it fits me better than just the regular Extreme Shooters grip. Plenty of texture but not as aggressive as an Evo.
  2. Started competing with what I carried at the time, a Taurus 24/7 Pro Compact in 9mm. Once I realized I wanted to be competitive I went with an M&P 5" Pro in 9mm for IDPA. Found USPSA and realized that to compete in Limited I really needed to shoot major and found a Rock Island 2011, and now I'm running an STI Edge. Wish I would have found the 2011 platform to begin with.

    Michael Martin "MikieM"

    He will be greatly missed. Always had great stories and first hand experiences of the early years of USPSA.

    Trigger recommendations

    I've got 2 of the x-lines from Atlas. Very happy with them.
  5. I had a similar situation recently. The grip safety and trigger bow were binding.

    fiber optic rod

    I've used them several times. Great customer service, and their fiber holds up very well.

    Limited Minor

    I've heard it said that there are only 2 real ways to shoot limited minor. Either ALL A's and try to keep up with production times, or have the fastest stage times and try to outrun the Mikes. I shot an M&P in Limited Minor for awhile and didn't do either of those. Switching to a 2011 in 40 was the best thing I've done for shooting Limited. I get 2-3 rounds less but with the way stages are designed there really isn't a difference between 20 and 22. Summed up A. ~23 B. TTI, Springer, its a glock you got plenty of options. C. 2011 D. Depends on your goal

    New shooter - Need advice on gun

    Made M a couple months after the switch, It had much more to do with practicing considerably more than I had been in the past. Practicing with someone that I have to chase helps a lot too.

    New shooter - Need advice on gun

    I made it to B class 74.9392% shooting Limited Minor with an M&P. Switched to major before I could see just how far I could take the old M&P.
  10. If they extend much above the top of the target they look sloppy. At A4 the ones that covered the head boxes on the clamshells was a rookie move and probably shouldn't have been overlooked at a match that big, the rest I really didn't notice. On a related note, I shot a club match in MI in the pouring rain. They had one target in an array that had the sticks extend 3-4 feet above the top of the target. When bagged, you had to take a long look to find where to aim.

    Forward grip screw, the teeny one.

    I used the purple thread locker (permatex I think) and haven't had them loosen up again.
  12. There is a learning curve in using the shotmaxx spy mode. It starts based upon movement of the watch and then has a built in delay that is adjustable (at least for the version 1 watch). For regular standing draw and deliver starts its pretty close, for ones where you have to run to table to start it can be off a little more. I originally started using it to check transitions, movement time etc, but then realized I should check and make sure its at least close to the official time, which it usually is. I just like the peace of mind in being confident the score I earned got recorded.
  13. Yes. Also if they hold it behind them so the score keeper can see it also, thats even better.
  14. I have to miss a lot of matches due to work so I go to as many as my schedule allows. Usually 1-2 locals a month is the best I can do.
