  1. Check out Steve Anderson’s books and Podcast for approaches to getting faster. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. On the rare occasion I shoot my 686 at IDPA I use a Master-Tac holster and speedloader holders. Get double layer for the added stiffness. Bill does a lot to support the sport! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. I think they are normally the 4th weekend of the month. Probably starting in April. If you are anxious to start you can come up to Factoryville next weekend. Check out PractiScore.com and search Mid11 under Matches for info. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Probably too far for our matches. You’ll want to check out Ontelaunee, New Holland, and Lower Providence. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Where at in PA? I help with matches at Keystone Sportsmen Assn near Muncy. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. You have two options. 1. Load your 180 grain bullets down to about 140PF, same OAL. 2. Pick a 140-150 grain bullet of similar profile at the same OAL and try the same powder charge as your major load. It will probably be close to the PF you want. Either may function with an 11lb spring. Some 9mm 1911s come with an 11lb spring from the factory. If not, try a 9 or 10lb spring and you should be good. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. I like one day for up to 10 stages. If more than 10 stages I prefer two days. I very much liked the way Area 5 set their schedule in 2019. All sessions were PM/AM, which allowed walking stages the morning before you shot and a nice early start to drive home the next day when you finished. Random draw prize table is pretty much mandatory with such a schedule, but I don’t go to matches for prize table trinkets. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Where at? I’m up near Bloomsburg and help run matches at Keystone Sportsmen Assn. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Master-Tac. Get double layer for the rigidity. Lots of color options and will mount to any of the Bladetech pattern hangers (Tech-lock, BOSS, etc). Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Take your mags apart and check the springs. I don’t know if they changed the design since I bought mine, but mine were 17 round mag springs in the shortened 10 round mag body with the super long basepad. I cut 2-3 coils off the springs. Mag loading got much easier, they could actually be seated in the gun, and there’s still plenty of spring tension. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Loaded many thousands of SNS 147 RN over 3.6 of WST. OAL of 1.150 and a PF of 132-136 depending on the gun and temperature. Keep in mind that WST is inverse temp sensitive. It will get slower as it gets warmer, so chrono them after they sit on your dashboard in the sun for a while to be sure they make PF. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Master-Tac will happily make your holster with a Tech-lock. The combat loop default is the same screw pattern as the tech-lock, just works slightly differently. Email him, or message him on Facebook. Tell him Evan sent you. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Second the Master-Tac comment. Get double layer for stiffness. Great finish and sure to be legal for IDPA and USPSA. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. I’m near Bloomsburg. Where are you from and where do you normally shoot? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. The second book, Principles of Performance, contains an interview Steve did with Lanny, which contains a few nice tidbits for the mental game. Get to Work is probably the most dense, and if you wanted to get just one I would suggest that one. IMHO, they are all valuable and build on each other, so if you can afford his three-book package I’d go that route. The podcast is even nicer, though he takes some getting used to. He covers various aspects of the mental game and how to train yourself, but he ends up covering most aspects over and over in different ways over a few months. If you don’t “get it” the first time, chances are he’ll cover it again down the road in a different way. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
