    1911 .40 S&W for USPSA Single Stack

    I have a Sig TME stainless in .40, and am looking for 10 round mags that are "box friendly". Does such a thing exist?

    Sig Sauer 1911 Traditional Match in 40 S&W

    Does anyone know what the weight is of the factory recoil spring in these things? I purchased the SIG TME in .40 recently. I haven't been able to find it online. Sorry for digging up an old thread. Thanks.

    Firing pin block

    I'm all ears when someone has a solution to this. One of my limited tanfoglios uses the egw sear, and therefore cannot use the FPB. I find myself cleaning the channel once to twice a month. What kid of powder are you using? I clean mine once a year (every 5-8k rounds) I use Titegroup... pretty dirty powder. I don't necessarily have to clean it that often, but if I have it apart.. I might as well. It really isn't that much work. In addition to that, I go through roughly 14-15k rounds a year with my competition equipment.

    Shooting "fast"

    Thank you. I was also shown a similar drill that focuses on pulling away and driving into targets. Driving in is one of my weak points. Still working on it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Hand chalk/grip lotions

    I mainly use liquid grip. I may be switching to pro grip. It feels a bit tackier. A friend of mine uses dirt. Such a savage. Haha. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Shooting "fast"

    I would recommend starting out running some basic drills, with someone who has spent some time in USPSA. I do this, pretty much weekly. Real short, shoot and move drills. One example only requires 3 targets and 2 barrels. Set the targets out to 10-12 yards, spaced about 3-5 yards apart. Use the barrels as an "A to B" location. From the buzzer, draw while standing behind barrel A and place 2 shots in each target. Then, while moving/changing mags, get to barrel B and repeat with 2 shots per target. All the while, minding one's safety fundamentals, and watch the 180. In addition, any local steel challenge matches are also a very good way to start out. All static shooting. This provides great training for drawing from a holster, gathering a clean sight picture, trigger control, and target transition. Hope this helps.

    Dot Torture/Training Plan for Beginners

    But what if the shooter can't yet shoot accurately at any speed? I see shooters who are obviously emphasizing speed and when I go up to score their targets, I get a little queasy feeling in my stomach when I see the number of mikes and no-shoot hits. Sometimes tough love might be OK, where you say those dreaded words "slow down and learn to put those bullets on target." There is no use going fast if you can't hit stuff. For those of you who sorted out your accuracy issues long ago, maybe this seems ridiculous. No problem with me. People point at me and laugh all the time. +1

    Newbie starting reloading

    Not sure if this has already been mentioned, but glock mags tend to get touchy with feeding out passed the 1.14x realm. Thats at least my experience. I keep them in the 1.135 realm. With that, they feed in pretty much anything. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
