  1. Eggzackly!! AND I think USPSA has already helped revolver a great deal. Personally ... I would have "never" bought an 8 shot revolver if USPSA had not changed the rules (Jan 2014 IIRC). I would still be shooting ICORE w/ a model 10 and jet loaders. IMHO it (the 8 shot and everything that goes with it) would not have been worth the trouble/expense just to shoot in ICORE.
  2. I will stand by my comment ... because ... IMHO ... I am seeing some real "outside the box" suggestions/comments in this thread that I have never seen or thought about before. Refinement; justification etc etc ... can come later. I appreciate your post as well ... great info ... stats ... Thanks ...
  3. +1 Wow!! Good stuff coming out of this thread!!
  4. IMHO ... optic equipped revolvers really belong in Carry Optics or a subset of Carry Optics. The revolvers were already on the Production list. At least you would be scored minor. Heck ... give us CO-R ... and remove any (Production) holster/belt equipment restrictions. Otherwise ... just shoot Open like SFish says and be sure to put a "-Rev" suffix on your first name when you register for the match. Billy-Rev Baltimore Tommy-Rev Tulsa Phil-Rev Phoenix Or .. they could make a class ... like Teen; Military; Senior; Law Enforcement etc ... just have the match director add Revolver as a class (to allow an opportunity to identify/select revolver results easily). Or not ...
  5. Well ... that's pretty much "it" then ... I would just make sure it is unloaded and give it to your dog.
  6. Wow ... that's disappointing. Even when the whole country has limited round count there is no benefit to revolver.
  7. Ha! In that chart ... the biggest crowd is the people that shoot 10 rounds!! AND ... that is funny ... w/ I shoot a "magazine" gun I like to shoot production or L10 ... The high cap stage planning is completely different. Have you even noticed ... every time you leave a shooting position you reload whether you need to or not??
  8. It's great not having to chase brass (moon clips) ... AND ... hearing someone in the background ask ... "how many shots does he have??"
  9. I use ones with a nylon patch on them ... I don't know how much the little patch helps because I use loctite on them anyhow. Set 'em and forget 'em. edit: large pistol primer cups are .020 thick ... if you get in a bind put one of those over a regular strain screw tip ... it won't go anywhere (wedged between the screw tip and the spring).
  10. No matter which one you get/have ... they will bolt to one of these rod/spindle thingies ... edit: hanger - https://benstoegerproshop.com/cr-speed-c-bax-production-holster-hanger-by-rescomp/
  11. Yep ... definitely not a draw for something new to do ... but ... It would allow an existing group of optic equipped revolvers (ICORE open shooters) to shoot their guns at USPSA w/o having to change a thing (just show up). Note: except (only mounting difference I could find) ... in USPSA the heel of the gun can't be below the top of the belt ... in ICORE it only has to stay above the bottom of the belt!! (like who would call that?? dumb rule!! 1 1/2 inch height difference).
  12. Just an a FYI ... Speed Beez has something that looks like a Comp-Tac w/ the front cut down ... (similar to the cut Blade Tec previously mentioned) ... https://www.speedbeez.com/product/speed-beez-outside-waist-band-sw-627-5-inch-tactical-revolver-holster-except-v-comp-trr8-uspsa-legal-speed-rig/
  13. IMHO .. USPSA is the place to shoot an 8 shot revolver (or Steel Challenge ... or a plain old steel match). The (USPSA) matches may have high capacity carbines and open guns running around but there is still Production, Single Stack, Limited 10 etc etc ... and the scenarios are fun. Nooooo biggie ... the low capacity folks are reloading between shooting positions ... the high caps folks get to run faster. Big deal ... that's why there are different divisions. It would be cool to be able to run an optic on a revolver w/o having to shoot in open. Heck .. if they can have Welfare Open (Carry Optics) then why not Revolver Optics ?? It would allow the open ICORE people to be able to participate w/ the same gun ... Also ... IMHO ... I am disappointed that many ICORE matches appear to continue to (snub) step on the 8 shot ... making 6 shot strings and triple taps the mainstay ... leaving in most cases the only advantage to having an 8 shot being a couple of extra bullets (in case of an ammo problem). The results clearly separate 8 shots from the 6 shots and the open guns as well as the moon clip and speed loader guys ... When you get home and unload your moon clips ... how many do you have that all the rounds have been fired?? Now that we have Limited 6 ... "Limited" is the 8 shot irons sighted revolvers. Are we (ICORE) pushing them away??
  14. I load 230gr Bear Creek bullets (or plain lead mostly these days) at 1.25 oal w/ 2.8gr of Bullseye and it is my favorite Thursday night steel load. W/ the Bear Creeks it clocks at 550fps out of my 5 inch Rock Island making 127pf. When I was first experimenting w/ this load ... I also tried 2.8gr of Clay Dot (which went about 25fps faster) and 3.4gr of Green Dot which went 590fps ... making 135pf. All cycled well ... I run a 12lb spring in the RI. Fun to shoot; knocks everything down.
  15. Yeah ... it's an RCBS (caught a good deal on it at the time) but I had to use another Dillon case feeder arm to mount it. The green "stick" RCBS gives you (for a mount) is useless w/ a 650. Has worked well. https://forums.brianenos.com/topic/254443-bullet-feeder-collator-mount-xl650/
