  1. I received a new front sight from STI yesterday! I have yet to make time for the replacement, but with Double Tap Championship coming up, I'd better get a move on! I'll post what I find when I drift the old sight off and clean up the dovetail. Thanks all! Mike "baldpriest"
  2. Ah! Good info! I was hoping it was the sight itself and not the slide that folks peened... I talked with Ryan at STI and he is sending a new front sight out. I'll fit the new sight asap and post results. Thanks all!
  3. I just called STI and they agreed to send a new sight out. I'll fit it myself, and will seriously consider pinning if this one moves... It will be interesting to inspect the dovetail in the slide once the old sight is out... I'm curious to find the root-cause here... Thanks!
  4. That's just depressing... Aren't all of these Hand-fit? If I don't hear back from STI, I'll need to purchase a front sight from Dawson and just get to work on fitting... when you peen the dovetail, you're talking about peening the sight itself or the slide? I'll check on the rear sight screw as well. Thanks for the "heads up"!
  5. For the forseeable future, I don't think custom guns are in the realm of possibility for me... So the DVC is my go-to gun, and maybe an Edge for a backup in the future...
  6. Agreed... Hoping it's just a small sight... I got an email back from STI, and they requested I send my slide in... I have DoubleTap Championship coming up, as well as some local matches soon, so I asked if they'd send a sight and allow me to fit it. Hoping they go for that...
  7. I emailed STI late last night. Hoping for a response today. I've fit front sights on other pistols, so that option sounds good to me! Thanks!
  8. If they are backlogged, I'll be doing the same...
  9. What was the fix? Send it back to STI?
  10. Correct, the metal body sliding in the dovetail.
  11. Hi all! I recently got a brand new DVC Limited 40. I have around 700 rounds through it and found that my front sight moves freely 1/8" during the last stage of a Steel match Saturday. I have heard opinions of "loctite, due to not being able to drift it all the way off the slide by hand" and "replace with an oversize sight" I haven't drifted it off yet, but do have the brass punches to do so... I thought I'd throw a line out for opinions from the guys that have walked this path before me. Any help would be much appreciated! Mike "baldpriest"
  12. Dude! This NROI class is awesome! ... just wish we had air conditioning! Baha
  13. I'm doing the ROI class as well. Don't forget the match in May!
  14. Bummed about the rain cancellation! It hardly ever rains in Lubbock! Lol
  15. I'll be the short bald fire-plug-lookin' guy That explains the "bald" part of baldpriest ... ?? We Baldwins just got to know. Haha! Yes, indeed! Lots of sunscreen... and the hats I wear aren't really for me, they are in consideration of other shooters... wouldn't want to blind them!
  16. Awesome! I'm shooting Limited in squad 4 as well! The Texas Star is on stage 4 btw... we get first crack at it! I'll be the short bald fire-plug-lookin' guy... lol! Hoping for good weather! Have a safe drive from Roswell!
  17. I went to a buddy's house last night and got schooled on the Dillon 650. Reloaded 100rds 9mm 124g. That was awesome! I think I'm going to need to invest in a Dillon now... I wonder if my buddy knew that would happen?? ha! I've been working hard on calling my shots and getting rid of the nasty double tap. Hoping to have a much better outing this time! Thanks! BP
  18. Hi all! I'm a NoOb to USPSA (5 matches so far) and new to the forum as well. I've fallen in love with the sport, even though I'm really stinkin' it up right now... ha. I finally got a CR Speed double belt, CR Speed mag pouches, and am trying out a Blade-Tech Pro Series Speed Rig Belt Holster for my M&P Pro 9. With my 6th match coming up in a couple of days, I'm excited to try a new method... SLOW DOWN and focus on Alpha hits. I've been producing decent times, but double tapping... resulting in first shot A/C and second shot D/M. I watched the Matt Burkett's first DVD set recently and found a few things I need to work on! This forum has been a wealth of info so far as well! Ok, Enough for now, maybe? Hope everyone has a most excellent day! baldpriest
