  1. Sorry Folks, October USPSA match at Fort Wayne has to be cancelled. Thanks to everyone who came out this year and supported our matches. The crew works very hard to design and build fun stages, and we hope you enjoyed them. Comments and feedback is always welcome. We struggled a little this year with a wet spring, so I hate to pull the plug, but that's how it goes some times. Special thanks to the guys who help design and setup stages, do registration, etc. And thanks to everyone who showed up early to finish setup and help tear down after. We will return in March. Special Classifier in April. I hope everyone has a safe winter. Thanks, God Bless. -rvb

    Shot PCC today. Won the division, but I think only cause Heath had some gun issues. Learned a few things... - on the walk through, need to visualize/practice the lean needed when going weak side. Failed to do this, and didn't set up well on a couple of position, not anticipating the lean required. - need to be a little more aggressive with the shooting on the move - I tend to hold the rifle at a ~30 degree angle when shooting fast/standing, which is ok until squeaking past a wall, and the bullets hit the wall instead of the target.... Need to plan when to be sure to get the gun vertical. - put the batteries in the scope the right way, or the scope won't turn on. - need to get/make an actual mag pouch... Big 9mm AR mags will bounce out your pocket... fortunately I didn't need the reload after all, it was "just in case" - I like not lugging around a holster/mags/etc on my belt all day -rvb

    Bill , this match with this gun was the first time I ever had a problem with the grip safety. I usually set them so it doesn't take much to disengage them so I need to just take a little material off. Actually, your stage was the first time it happened! Took me forever to get shooting, then I couldn't get the mag in.... I appreciate you rigging that plate to not fall so I could re-shoot it! Good seeing you again! -rvb

    Shot the IN 400 Yesterday. I shot SS-Minor. I was a LOT of fun... I thinking mainly because it was the first major I've shot in a long time I didn't work. It was so much more enjoyable, I was able to do better walkthroughs and a better job getting my plans in my head, able to take a few seconds break while the other shooters are shooting... My shooting was nothing great. I cost myself a LOT of time over the match not getting mags seated. I'd guess about 8 times I had to re-load the gun when the mag fell out after a reload. My WH is sore and slightly bruised today from trying to beat those bastards into the gun. I figure that was at least 20 seconds over the match, if not more. Point were poor, about 88%. Some of that was staying away from the edge on partials, some was distance, and some was sloppiness. 3 mikes, all just an inch or two low into partial hardcover. I was "choppy" all day. I didn't do a good/smooth job of setting up in positions. Could have done more shooting on the move. A couple times I still fought my tendency to get too high on this gun, and had to adjust to dis-engage either the thumb or grip safety. The Ford 9mm 1911 ran perfectly. I'm just going to try some tripp mags to see if they seat easier than these Wilsons.... but that's a problem for another day.... This weekend I think I'll shoot some PCC at our club match, and then get out the open gun for the rest of the season. -rvb

    Cha-lees advice is all excellent. Some other thoughts... Do you lube brass when you reload? Leaving some one shot on could help. Or spray some silicone on a rag and give the ammo a tumble before loading them into the mag. I've even seen using nickel brass solve it. -rvb
