  1. For me it's just doing it.....I use a dot drill target at 10 yards and put 5 in each dot at the end of all my live fire sessions. I have seen marked improvement.
  2. Has anybody measured these new extended bases for Glock magazines?
  3. Their going to stick it to their creditors and then try to stay in business.
  4. I have a few of the magpuls and they work fine, no problems.
  5. In rifles, there really is no such thing as over stabilized. I can shoot 50gr to 52gr match bullets just as accurately as a 77gr in a 1-7 twist 22 cal barrel.
  6. I use an EGW undersized 9mm for station 1 in my dillion.
  7. Had a Deltapoint Pro installed on G34, I have no iron sites on this gun. I spend about 45 minutes Saturday dry firing to be able to index with the dot. While dry firing I found I could shoot with both eyes open, very easily. This morning was my first time live firing with a red dot on a pistol. The hardest thing for me, remembering to keep both eyes open, it's so in grained in me to close my nondominate eye. I sited the DP in at 15 yards, from 3 yards out 25 yards, all the round fall into a 3" circle. Finding the dot under the pressure of a timer is what I need to work on. After siting in and confirming my POI at 3,5,10,15 and 25 yards. I did a bunch of 5x5 drills, a lot of draw and fire one. Final drill, I did a Dot Torture test at 5 yards. I cleared it, next live fire test I will have move it back to 7 yards.
  8. I went and had my G34 slide milled for the Deltapoint Pro, I picked it up from the gunsmith today. I can't believe that I waited this long to upgrade to a red dot. From the first dry fire draw I had the dot centered in the screen and on the target. Looking forward to getting some live fire.
  9. I have been shooting iron sited pistols from the 80’s, shot IDPA, and USPSA in production class. I’m in my late 40’s, I have needed glasses in my mid 20’s for an astigmatism, then last year the eye doc said I needed bifocals. I have a set of glasses with line and the reading Rx on the bottom, and a set with no reading Rx. I tried the no line bifocals and could not stand it. Now I have to decided if I want the front site or target in focus. I have been picking the front site. After reading about red dots on pistols, that the dot and target can be in the same focal plane. I’m thinking of giving Carry Optics a try. After doing some research it seem that most people are using RMR’s in competitions. But, I have also read that the Delta Points have a larger window which makes the dot easier to pick up, and that the window is not tinted as the RMR. I'm not planning to add back up iron sites, this is going to be a game gun. With the Delta Point having the ability to add the rear site to scope is nice, no need for a rear site milling, just need to add a tall front site. I’m getting really close to pulling the trigger on the Delta Point, and having my G34 Gen 3 milled for it. I have a couple questions. Is anybody on here using a Delta Point? How are they holding up in competition? If I want, after the slide is milled, can I take the optic off and shoot production?
  10. I can second this podcast, very good show. I also listen to Steven Anderson's, Ben Stoger's, and Shannon Smith's shows.
  11. Check out Law Enforcement targets, shipping is very reasonable. http://www.letargets.com/
  12. Again, IDPA needs to compile a comprehensive rule book already, it's been close to 20 years already.
  13. I'm looking for a good alternative to gatorade, am I diabetic and don't want the extra sugar.
  14. http://michaelbane.blogspot.com/2016/07/rip-walt-rauch.html?m=1 Sad news, I use to shoot matches with him in early 2000's.
  15. I do not wet tumble.....still like the old fashion corn cob media in a vibrating bowl. I went to the progressive press to pull the handle less...now I am stuck with 1/2 of a 5 gallon bucket of 9mm that I have run through the 550B to just deprime. I am to cheap to toss the brass.
  16. This is a good read: http://www.triangletactical.net/get-started-competitive-shooting/
  17. Of course, do us all a favor and let us know if you bought it on these forums I did not purchase them for anybody on this forum, it's from a seller on facebook.
  18. The once fired 9mm brass I have is killing me, was having lots of hang up while trying to loaded some 9mm on my 550B this weekend. I found that the spent primers are not decapping very well. On about 1 in 10, only the back of the spent primer cup is coming out, leaving the sides of the spent primer still in the pocket. At first I thought is was a primer crimp, but after closer examination it's sides of the spent primer. So now, with this batch of 9mm cases, I am running them through the 550B just to decap them and inspect each one.
  19. IDPA rules are written with to much subjectivity of the SO. IDPA has been around long enough to have written a quality rule book, I do not understand why they do not have one yet.
