  1. Glad to hear others state what I always thought was happening but didn’t know for sure.
  2. I have been trying to figure out exactly where this is catching. I think if I had a dental mirror, I could tell for sure, but I don’t have access to one. When I run something like an Allen wrench, I feel it catching on the interstate. Is it catching on the bottom of the mag tube (ie the mag tube’s diameter is smaller than the basepad). The only other way I could see it happening was if the mag tube’s diameter was larger than the basepad, but this seems less likely to me). Am I wrong? Also is anyone else now not able to see picture provided by CarlB86?
  3. Yep. That is what I was referring to in my earlier post. From how the OP described his problem, your book on this covered it completely. The angle you approached it was something I had never thought of before reading it.
  4. Thank you!!! I was having a lot of trouble picturing that, but seeing the picture now that makes perfect sense.
  5. Did you ever try the drill Cha-Lee recommends for shot calling from his book?
  6. Yes, if anyone has pics I would love to see them. Thanks
  7. 1. To the best of my knowledge, the ban did not stand. 2. I have no idea. 3. On Ben's podcast, you can hear an interview with Mike Valentine. Mike Foley is supposed to be interviewed (without Ben present per Ben's idea because he could not be unbiased). The interview is supposed to take place with Joel Parks and possibly one other frequent guest of his podcast. I think most would agree Joel is about as uncontroversial as they get so it should be a fair interview. Last I heard, Joel mentioned Mike Foley said he was traveling and did not have time yet for the interview.
  8. I shot 2011s prior to switching to CO. I found the grip angle of the Stock II the most similar also.
  9. I can’t believe how well you summed it up. Those have been my exact experiences except I never bought a Shadow II because the frame just isn’t big enough for my comfort. I really wanted the X5 or Shadow to work, but they don’t fit my hand very well.
  10. I have the same issue. One thing that has helped me is to bring the gun a little higher out of the holster before I start pushing the gun out.
  11. Exact same thing here. I wanted so bad for the X5 to work for me, but I never could get the grip to work. The Tanfos just feels so good in your hand.

    P320 X5 Thread

    For the new models, are they offering any with a larger grip module than the previous X5?
  13. Why did I wait so long to make the switch? I had to retrain myself not to go for a reload everytime I moved. And shot faster, you don’t need as many Alphas (assuming you are switching to major).
  14. I really hadn’t heard that before, but that is a great way of putting itI really hadn’t heard that before, but that is a great way of putting it
  15. I believe those were for aspiring GMs. As said, just keep at it. Film yourself and watch for inefficient movements. You eventually get to a point where you can no longer move the body any faster , but you can be more efficient. For example, My draws were terribly slow although my hands were moving super fast. It wasn’t until I figured out that I was doing a lot of extra movements did I reduce my times. Especially on moderate transitions (not this drill), did I figure out jerking my body to the next target wasn’t the most efficient way to do a transition.
