    What Is Your Absolute Single Favorite Movie?

    Hard to pick a favorite, but I would have to say, The Matrix.

    RCI M2

    I'm curious, which gun were you using that doesn't run?

    Should I switch from Right to Left hand

    Doug Koenig recommends switching to your left hand if you are right-handed but left-eye dominant. Based on your results above, I would tend to agree.

    IDPA shooter wondering about USPSA

    Depending on the RO, you are typically given around 5min to inspect the stage and figure out your plan. The RO should have given you the number of targets and round count during the briefing so I always recommend the first thing you do during your walk-through is to make sure to account for all the targets – sometimes the stage designer likes to hide targets in places you might not have noticed. This portion of USPSA is sometimes a little stressful for shooters that are used IDPA because there are usually more targets and when you’re new, the stage plan might be obvious. You might also feel some pressure as time is winding down on the walk-through and you still haven’t quite figured out what to do. If you decide to shoot production, just try to break the stage up into groups of 4 or 5 targets per position and reload while moving to the next position. I shoot production and carry four spare mags on my belt and have yet to go for the fourth.

    Where are all the PCC shooters???

    Since many of the clubs in my area have switched from 3gun to UML this year, most of the guys I shoot with have started shooting the PCC-only division. They seem to prefer shooting their PCCs in multi-gun matches over USPSA for some reason.

    Which Optic for Rimfire Rifle?

    Hello. A local club started hosting Steel Challenge matches recently and I’m thinking of giving it a try. I’d like to use my 10/22 but would like to get a red dot sight for it. I have a friend that can get me great deals on Vortex optics so I’m considering the Venom. First of all, would this be a good choice? And second, would a 6MOA or 3MOA dot be preferred? Thanks!

    Anybody shoot green dot?

    The 510C Elite is available for $287.09 shipped from Optics Planet with code 13RDS. Code is good through the 16th.

    Best shell caddies ?

    I've been using a pair of Invictus Rack 12Qs and so far am very happy with them. Retention is good, but not overly aggressive, and I love how adjustable they are for cant and rotation. They're expensive, but think of it as a buy-once, cry-once situation.

    Stoeger M3000 Scattergun?

    Looks like MOA just dropped a new adapter nut/kit that allows FS owners to add a +2, 3, or 4 Nordic MXT extension tube.

    Stoeger M3000 hammer falls, but round doesn't fire. Advice?

    Quad loading question

    I have a borrowed TTI M2 that does this as well. It is super annoying. It seems like I need to consciously apply pressure on that second shell in the direction of the stop to make sure it stays put and doesn't get thrown back onto the lifter. Is this a tuning issue with the shell stop or just an inherent part of the design? I know that Stoegers use a different shell stop design and I've never had this issue with one of them.

    Stoeger M3000 Scattergun?

    Thanks for the link, but those threads look way finer than what is on the FS.

    Stoeger M3000 Scattergun?

    Picked up my M3K Freedom Series from the FFL this weekend. I did not realize that Stoeger just extended the magazine tube to hold 10 +1 rounds - I thought they included a conventional magazine extension with the gun. It's not the end of the world, but I'm a little bummed that there isn't an easy way to switch to a 12-round tube if I want to. Hopefully MOA or someone else will make a +2 end cap for the FS!
