  1. Atlas makes an excellent open gun. Frankly at the price you buy an open gun, any of them should run great. As to loading 9 major it's no big deal. I jus started reloading myself last year and am pretty comfortable doing it. I cheated a good bit and asked Adam for a recipe and worked my way up to it. Originally I went 9 major because I was shooting Atlanta Arms and that what they make. The reloading adventure has been pretty fun so far and it's way cheaper than Atlanta arms.
  2. We’ve got a couple super seniors locally and they run some crazy good stages. The only concession some of them make to age is running CO or Open guns because they can’t see the sights and the target.
  3. Started in production with a glock 34. Hated it. Went directly to limited major shooting 2011s. Dabbling in PCC and CO. I’m C in both PCC and limited and will likely die a C class shooter.
  4. Currently I’m running N320 and Ramshot Silhouette. Sportsman had the Silhouette but the N320 was out of stock.
  5. I started with a Gock 34 in production. Not realizing limited minor was a thing I jumped to a 2011 for USPSA and 3 gun. If you’d like to kill two birds with one stone, kind of, get a .40 and run it in both 3 gun and USPSA. You'll lose a couple rounds of capacity but not n ought to matter in 3 gun. You could also go an entirely different route and build a PCC. In 3 gun it takes the place of a pistol meaning less stuff and PCC in USPSA is amazingly fun.
  6. Hey folks, I’m in Columbia SC looking for places to buy powder locally. So far I’ve only found Sportsman’s Warehouse. PSA doesn’t apparently do much with reloading anymore. Am I best off going online?

    A good friend of mine diagnosed that same thing. I’m not pushing off hard enough and I do apparently have a very very pregnant pause before I get moving. I feel like I’m got good planning for a stage but it doesn’t seem to stick in my head. My current style is post and blast to try and remove some of the movement in a stage.
  8. I’m not sure this counts as a shooting technique but it’s like shooting adjacent. I can’t seem to run during a stage. No matter what I think I’m doing it’s an inelegant trot at it’s fastest. When the 35 year old loses a stage to the senior citizen with two bad knees it’s time to start asking questions. So I’m summary what did you do, if anything, to get comfortable running with a pistol?
  9. Hit up taccom as he makes a carbon fiber extension tube. I have a +8 on my 1301 and it weighs like 6 ounces or something.
  10. Limcat also does an open shotgun. Any particular reason they haven’t come up?
  11. Seems like I'm in good company then. My eye sight hasn't gone yet, but it will. I do love gadgets and the guns do look awesome. With the Atlanta Arms making 9mm major now that hurdle is taken care of. I'm not expecting to win any matches. I'm a C class shooter in Limited and I run like Hans from the Simpsons. It just looks like fun. Going to shoot the same buddy's open gun in a rifle/pistol match this weekend and see how I do. Won't be the same as USPSA but it should be pretty close. If I do like it, then it's time to get an open shotgun.
  12. Shot a buddy’s open gun a few weeks ago and it’s had me thinking since. Currently shooting limited and PCC. Loving both but it almost always fun to lose in a new division. For those of you who swapped into open what was the deciding factor?
  13. To me, the combo of box and red dot make open. That’s likely too simplistic a view. I enjoy trying to load my shotgun with fast doubles. However, tech isn’t static and if a box fed semi auto shotgun becomes commercially viable for Mossberg, Beretta, etc. we may have to adapt. Or we say those aren’t what we want and we move forward. I like my gadgets and gizmos but I’m good either way. My 5 foot long shotgun I find hilarious and entertaining.
  14. I'd also say buy any gear you need and just get out there. As long as you aren't unsafe or unpleasant to your squad mates the day will go fine. Pack a lunch because you'll be there a while.
