  1. I just got a GX Vice holster to replace a RHT. Both are very thick, stable holsters ( compared to the single layer of my first cheap-ass holster) , but the GX is noticeably thicker. My RHT has done well for the last 2 years, and I still think it is a good holster, but the design on the lock mechanism on the Vice is really nice, and takes the GX to a higher level. Also it may just be a factor of the GX being newer, but the finish is much cleaner and the design seems nicer, more efficient You will not regret either, but I am loving the new hotness of the GX.
  2. I just watched the you tube review and I would really agree with pretty much everything there, though I will say that the recoil is actually pretty close to my steel loads and just a bit wimpier than my USPSA loads ( 147 gr coated over 3.4 gr VV N320) . I guess if you are used to factory 115's it would be soft. I have never fired an open gun, so no way to compare the feeling. The dot does make a bit more of a circle than an "up and down", but I figure I am learning to watch it either way, and the fact I can track it at all is a win. I have not seen the barrel freeze and slow down, even when I am hammering away, but I am a bit obsessive with lube and use a lot of oil on the coolfire when I put it in the gun I agree that there is still a place for non fire, technique dry fire, and I do that , often w/o the cool fire in, but as I have no easy range, I do like the semi live fire experience. Again, there is a bit of difference - I can rip a surrender draw to dot on target in 0.8-0.9 dry all day , but when I try with the Coolfire and pull the trigger and the dot jumps, it seems I am not as settled and on target as I like. This has helped my first shot is steel as I have to get that grip, bear down and see the dot a bit clearer. But hey, it is another tool, and if you think it will help, it likely will. for the cost of a case and a half of 9mm, it was worth it to me.
  3. Update - I have been using the Coolfire fairly regularly and I am still feeling that this is positively effecting my shooting, both USPSA, and maybe more on steel challenge. The unit is holding up pretty well, though it seems to eat striker tips pretty regularly, and they need to be replaced for it to run well. And those little suckers are a bi#%h to get on, and 1 or to have flown off the bench, never to be seen again. Eric at CoolFire has been very responsive to questions, and offering help when things seemed off. Looking forward to spring shooting !
  4. Yep ! I thought I was the only doofus that did that. I installed an extended mag release on a P320 and dropped the mag on the first shot out of the holster 3 stages in a row , before I figured that out. I was a bit new, and kept thinking I was screwing up the grip on the draw. 3 min with the Dermel was all it took. Good times, good times........
  5. Dang that sucks ! I know this is not your responsibility and may be totally out of your interest or concerns , but do you know if he is teaching at any other matches ?
  6. Well crap - looked like it was a go to sign up, ......... and then cancelled. Does any one know if Max does that class- shoot the match as a squad thing at any other match ? The Max Michel website is not really offering any options - I am not really thinking the calendar is up to date. Thanks for any help, as usual
  7. Thanks Paul, I fully believe he is worth training with - I was very impressed watching him train people in Oklahoma. I totally understand needing downtime time with the family, an my hope was to train next year, regardless. If you have an alternative way to contact him, I would be very appreciative. I will look into Mr Herron as well.
  8. Some how I do not think that will work. Unfortunately I have still not heard a word back.
  9. Thanks for all the great load data guys. I finally had some time to " mad scientist" some options, and found that through the P320 X5, with a 12 lb spring, the nicest feeling, and most accurate was 124 grand Berry flat tops, over 3.5 grains of VV N320. - I could go down to 3.3 but then there were some FTE's. The 115 grains did fine over 3.8 grains of VV N320, but the rounds were a bit spread out at 10 yards. Arguably I suck, and pin point accuracy is not a priority in SC, but I liked the 124's a bit better.
  10. Thanks valerko, I am really glad to hear that review. I was very impressed with what I observed at the OK Sectional match, and that is why I am trying so hard to contact him. Normally my really short attention span would have pushed me in another direction by now. I will keep banging away here, and again, if anyone has ANY suggestions, I will try them as well !
  11. Hello Cary,


    I am sorry to bother you, but I was at the OK Sectional last summer, and saw Max Michel teaching a squad. I heard he does this every year. I would really like to try and get this training but I have been unable to contact Mr Michel through his web site, email, or listed phone. I was wondering if you know if the training would happen in 2020, and if so how to sign up ? 


    Thank you,

  12. Hello Jason. Thank you for the thought on contacting the MD of the OK Sectional match. I saw you mentioned a link, but I did not see one listed. Do you still have that info ? 


    Thanks again,

  13. Yes sir. I have tried that many times, but no response.
  14. Well, that did not work. Any one else have an idea ?
  15. Ahh. I have been actively avoiding that. This actually may be a reason to actually join FaceBook. Dang. Well, thank you for the suggestion
