  1. Might want to take a look at the DVC Steel model which is designed to run factory minor ammo. https://stiguns.com/guns/dvc-steel/
  2. Just noticed on the STI website that the STI DVC Open gun is now only offered in 9mm. Is 38SC dead ??? https://stiguns.com/guns/dvc-open/
  3. Distance from my STI DVC open gun grip to inside of belt is exactly 2" per USPSA rules using the extended ball joint rod. I love the extra thumb clearance it gives me.
  4. I think the two best additions to the Alpha X holster are the new thigh pad and more importantly for me is the extended ball joint which lets me position the holster further out from my thigh. The guys at DAA really listen to their customers !! https://www.doublealpha.biz/alpha-x-extended-ball-joint-rod
  5. Wile the US average is 1.2 most doctors want you under 5 and most sources I have looked at define actual "lead poisoning" as anything over 10. Most ranges will pull you off at 40 or 50.
  6. You usually want to get two separate lead tests. One for blood lead level (BLL) and one for absorbed lead (ZPP). The US average BLL is 1.2 micrograms per decaliter of blood. When I left the range I was at 22 and one of my co workers was at 18.
  7. Anyone ever heard of lead poisoning issues while hand loading modern rifle or pistol ammo ? I worked at a range that lead poisoned me and they are trying to claim that I got it because I handled. Thanks in advance.
  8. I use this for all my precision rifle reloading so use it for all my pistol stuff also.
  9. 7.2g WAC, 124g MG JHP, OAL=1.232, Winchester or CCI primers, 1370fps, PF 170 in my STI DVC 38SC open gun. Runs like a champ.

    New VP9 compact !!

    Got to shoot the new VP9 compact today. All I can say is WOW. Best CC gun on the planet by far. All the features (ergonomics, trigger, mag release, build quality, etc.) are there in spades. If you are looking for a CC gun then you owe it to yourself to take a really close look at it.
  11. I use 5.4g WAC with MG 124 JHP in my M&P ported with the 5 inch barrel and it works flawlessly.
  12. I work 6 days a week as an CRSO and instructor on a high volume range and compete on weekends. I use a ShotMaxx 1 literally every day and have had no problems whatsoever. I always use the accelerometer mode for myselfmand the spy mode for matches. I will pick up the new ShotMaxx 2 shortly. Highly recommended !!
  13. Here is some information from the 2016 USPSA nationals. Looks like Winchester was the most popular followed by CCI and then Federal. Based on that I use Winchester in my Open major gun and it runs great. http://www.doublealpha.biz/uspsa-gear-report?utm_source=DAA+Live+Site+Customer+DB&utm_campaign=39f58d68f6-Mark_7_machines_and_accessories10_21_2016&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_d35278cb58-39f58d68f6-107941489
  14. I have both the Racemaster and the Alpha X. I like the Racemaster much better. The Alpha X is much sturdier but less adjustable. The Alpha X works just OK with my open gun (STI DVC open) but I like the Racemaster MUCH better for my striker fire guns. I can adjust the distance from my hip to the holster much better with the Racemaster.
