  1. I don’t grab the forcing cone...? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Doubling back to the load question... I use those SNS 160's and love them. Nice and heavy with a long, tapered ogive. After trying a few loads I settled on 3.7 - 3.8 grains of Titegroup loaded out to 1.505". They make 131-133 PF in a 6" gun and 124 PF in a 4". I don't like TG in short cases (ie. 9mm) but it's pretty mild in the longer .38 brass. It's also such a fast burner that it gets full ignition even at a relatively low drop weight and I haven't noticed any position sensitivity.
  3. Oh, Pat. Never change. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. I did some draw and fire practice with my IDPA rig today (4" 686 shooting .357) and definitely noticed a difference with a tighter grip. I also noticed that I really liked the Bill Davis grips I'd put on... until my hands starting sweating, lol. Should be fine for short IDPA stages, though.
  5. It's the best option for IDPA (and looks swell under a safari vest!).
  6. Hey all! I'm wondering if anyone has tried to cram a P10S into the BUG box. It looks like it's a hair too long but the manufacturer specs usually aren't too exact. BUG Guidelines: Max Barrel Length: 3.5” Max Length: 6.5" Max Width: 1.375" Max Height: 4.625" Max Weight: 26 oz P10S Specs: Barrel Length: 3.5” Length: 6.6" Width: 1.25” Height: 4.6” Weight: 24.4 ozs
  7. What division are you running? I guess technically it could go in ESP or SSP, right? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. So... sorry to be one of those people but I find myself in the market for a new USPSA gun and I'm wondering what everyone's long-term thoughts are on the Pro XT? I've had my eye on it since it came out but always shied away from it for one reason or another. The (relatively) low-cap mags are a disadvantage, but the fact that the trigger pull rivals a tuned-up CZ has me looking at it really hard. My only concern is that my stubby sausage fingers won't be able to run it properly. Also, this is decocker-only, correct? No option to run it in single action with a safety?
  9. Those are like... Sir Mixalot BIG butt Big Butts. Custom?
  10. Really good advice in this thread - thank you. I'm still going to work on splits - I feel like they could be faster than they are without getting sloppy. I'll start looking at other parts of my game, too. I know for sure that my draw is slow, but I think I could find room for improvement in target acquisition and reloads, too.
  11. Oh, yeah, this one is for sure. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Thank you everyone! I'll start working some of these into my range time. Interesting. So you get a full sight picture before you break each shot?
  13. Thanks, appreciate it. I think this one is in good shape but I honestly don't really know what I'm looking for. I cleaned it with a non-ammonia cleaner when I bought the gun and that's been the extent of my interaction with it. I guess I should know this, but are all Ti 8-shot cylinders cut for moons?
  14. Hey spinnygunners, I've been shooting wheelies for a couple years now and decided to try and improve in earnest (finally). Obviously a lot of what we shoot is double-taps on paper and that's also one of the things that's harder with a revo than a bottom feeder, so I was wondering if anyone had specific drills or strategies they use to increase speed and accuracy? Shooting as fast as I can, I can get both shots into a 6" target at 13 yards, but they tend to both be low and not exactly impressive groups. I suppose I can just keep doing it until I improve on trigger pull and I learn where the sights should be when I break the second shot but I figured smarter people than me might have better approaches... Any help appreciated!
  15. If you haven't, post it up over at the Smith and Wesson forum. I bet if you make a thread asking for a valuation you'll also get some offers.
  16. Out of curiosity, what's the going rate on a 8-shot Ti cylinder? My new to me TRR8 came with one and I'm trying to weight out if I want to use it or stick with the steel one.
  17. Kidding aside, a 4" version would make a great IDPA gun.
  18. Awesome! The Pro is the DA/SA model, right? Was the trigger necessary to help with the SA pull or just the DA?
  19. First, sorry if this is a double post - I tried searching but the combination of "Witness" and "Match" turns up quite a few hits. I was wondering if anyone has any experience with the Witness P Match (the single-action version)? I'm specifically interested in the shape and size of the frame. As an individual of the sausage-fingered variety, I tend to have problems shooting the larger-framed EAA's and even some CZ's. Obviously the metal frame guns will be better for recoil mitigation but I'm not overly concerned about it in a nearly-2lb 9mm platform. Any other thoughts appreciated!
  20. Ah, I get you now. Don’t worry, you’re dealing with shooters - if they weren’t bitching about that, it would be something else. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  21. I was thinking that it wouldn't be the worst idea to make the tablets easier to track, haha. Drop me a PM?
  22. Hey all! I'm running matches using Kindle Fire HD 6's. The color screens and responsiveness of the devices are awesome, but the high-gloss screens can be problematic in the Colorado sun. Has anyone found sun shades that work with their scoring devices? Amazon has a bunch of them that look great and are quite cheap, but they're all designed to be used in landscape format rather than portrait.
  23. I believe all the 9mm's do. You could also reach out to Armscor if you want 100% validation.
  24. I'm a "C" challenging a "GM". Not really, lol. I'm 99% sure that I can shoot faster than Pat. The difference is, he would hit something.
