    Extended mag release for G35 suggestions please

    I’ve tried most of them. Finally settled on the rockyourglock extended gen4 release with their reduced power release spring. Works great for me, and pretty inexpensive.

    Favorite coated 147gr?

    I only just started using them, but so far, the Acme 147 FP-NLG has been real nice. It allowed me to increase my OAL a bit and is very accurate.
  5. Two. The first is an indoor range 5 minutes from my house. Kind of expensive, but very convenient. Lane shooting only. 50' max. No drawing allowed. The second is a nice outdoor range 20 minutes from my house. Inexpensive but single shot, slow rate of fire, etc... I am going to try and quit both and put the money into a membership somewhere with action bays.

    RIP Aretha

    Such a phenomenal singer. When I was a little kid in the 70's, and my mother used to play her Lady Soul album all the time.

    Grip tape keeps coming off

    I've had pretty good luck by putting the seam, or the start of the griptape somewhere other than right where the most twisting pressure is going to be. If I have the griptape starting pretty close to where the meat of my weak hand thumb is going to be clamping and twisting, then it almost always moves eventually, even with careful prep. If I connect that section around the back to where my strong hand is clamping, it seems to hold better. That being said, I probably shoot fewer matches and don't grip as hard as some. Anyway, my point is that messing with the design pattern of the griptape, and where it starts and stops helped me a little, but it didn't solve it all together.

    Ruger PC carbine

    Thanks. That is good info. I hadn't considered the height difference, only the distance from my eye.

    Which is your favorite CZ and why?

    I'm a sucker for the P09. I will admit it is an acquired taste, and I have shot SP01s and Shadows that had better triggers. They just appeal to me, are very accurate, easy to work on, and with the large backstrap and some griptape, really solid in my grip.

    Ruger PC carbine

    Thank you for posting the video. Nice shooting! I have one of these, but have not taken to a match yet. Do you like having the dot forward on the barrel instead of back on the receiver?
  13. My 550 is on the right. The cartridge bin is about 12" from the wall. Leaves me more room to do other stuff on the bench.

    Milling a slide for CO or get an MOS?

    I went the MOS route because I was (and still am) unsure about which red dot I prefer. I'll probably have something milled if/when I make up my mind.

    Grip Strength and Enducrance Training

    I keep one of those Thera-Band FlexBars at my desk at work. Originally it was to do the elbow therapy stuff, but there are a bunch of thing you can do with it that improve overall hand strength and wrist stability.
