  1. They responded. Any 10/22 compatible parts should fit.
  2. They are for my brother. He pays what I paid.
  3. Hmmmm. I wonder if it accepts Kidd internals? I'll contact them to see.
  4. If you prep the trigger while going fast, sooner or later you will have a ND. Virtually guaranteed. Been there, done that, stopped doing it. It might just look like a bad shot to someone watching but you will know it's a ND. Then you have to "unlearn" the trigger prep. IIRC, in his book Brian describes getting his gun horizontal and on target in the last 8" or so of his draw stroke. He then transitions his finger to trigger. Safety Rule #3.
  5. Pin shoots are always fun. They are even fun to watch.
  6. I have one and like it. All my Glocks need grip reductions and this one already comes with great grip geometry, undercut trigger guard, high ride beaver tail, and adjustable back strap. Plus it's milled for low-riding RDS and has suppressor sights. My only negative is it does not have a trigger as crisp as my Gen 5 43x and does not accept Gen 5 trigger parts. (I believe the internals are mostly Gen 3,4.) They are designed to be working guns but that may not matter. No apparent reason you can't game it and have non-Gen 5 trigger work.. Mine is a carry gun.
  7. Some of my PD training has been with a SF (Ranger sniper) with lots of real combat experience. Been shot 3 times, bayoneted, etc. He pointed out to me that, opposed to rifle distances, when in a deadly situation at handgun distances your eyes will develop tunnel vision. You will not be able to look at the sights or anything but the threat. The most you can hope for is a flash picture of the front sight or dot. I knew this already from physiology class but it was nice hearing it from him. With that in mind, I had irons on my EDC. Lately, I tried dry firing with my every day bifocals and without my glasses at all. The idea was to see if I got a flash picture equally with a RDS or irons. RDS won out. YMMV, especiaily if you have great vision without glasses. I would agree that the most important thing is that your gun always come up to where your eyes are looking. That's a training/practice issue.
  8. RIP Chip. Great guy and great products.
  9. Yeah, that's it. Some start early, some start later. We want to be pushing at the end, not swinging. When we are too too high bowling or fishing becomes the issue. We did not have the gun horizontal and on the sight line at the end of the draw stroke.
  10. Yeah, that's it. It doesn't come straight up and out like it's a 90 degree turn. From the side it is an arc. The push starts early, when the support hand engages. Ben hits sight line pretty far out there but it ends in a push. The point is that it ends in a push and not putting the brakes on as the gun comes swinging up from below (bowling). The threads here at BE are very good at describing this with examples of push vs bowling. I doubt many here are actually bowling and I don't imagine you are advocating it.
  11. I think you are missing the point here. Nose to target defines the sight line. You don't bring the gun to your nose. You put it on the sight line in front of you and drive it forward. You can't drive it straight forward from your chest. If you get a chance, look up the threads on this subject. They are pretty good.
  12. Looking from the side, the arc of the gun is concave up. What you describe is convex (concave down), also sometimes referred to as a bowling motion. If the concave curve I describe is too high, it is called a fishing motion or "Zebco". The topic comes up in training and has been discussed in a thread or two here on BE. Most seem to find that the correct concave motion gets the sights on fast. At high speed, bowling or fishing tends to put the dot too high or low and requires am adjustment (or more) when the gun is at full extension. That's an extra step(s) and can be frankly dangerous if you are in the habit of prepping the trigger. When you are driving the gun down your sight line, the muzzle is on target early in the draw stroke. But some apparently do fine with the approach you describe. So YMMV.
  13. You want to get the dot on the sight line your eyes are on. i.e. You want the gun pointing where you are looking. The line from your nose to the target is a good enough approximation to your sight line. So ... 1. Identify the target. 2. Point your nose at the target. 3. Drive the RDS down the sight line you have now created. Do not bring the gun up in an arc. Drive it down the sight line you have created between your nose and target. 4. You will likely find your grip is extremely important in getting and keeping the dot on the target. Once you get it right, practice a lot so the dot always goes where your eyes are looking.
  14. I'm with you. A small dot is good for precision when you have the time. But small dot might be slow when you just need a flash picture .i.e. cqb Experiment to find what is best. You might find bright small is just fine. Or not. I have both and might be leaning to small dot to cover a bunch of stuff.
  15. My brother and I have his 1911 conversion. Chet makes great stuff.
  16. With only one eye, our depth perception is not good. In many situations, we just learn to adapt by using other clues in the environment. But during eye exams we do not have those other clues. I've been through this stuff for over 50 yrs. and can't tell you how many eye exams I've had. I learned how to game them. Use one eye and then the other is one trick. Then you can figure out what you missed with just one eye. You obviously can't do that. What is your vision ? Is it 20/20? That can further complicate things. As we age, our ability to focus on things at different distances decreases. So if you need glasses, you have to pick glasses based on whether you want to see the front sight or the target. Or get bifocals and move your head around to get the clearest image. (Bad solution. Too slow.) A bunch of us have different glasses for different situations. One set for RDS and another for irons. I wouldn't get discouraged. Practice will take care of a lot of things. And shooting practice is fun.
  17. I have diplopia (double vision). In day-to-day life, I can normally fuse the images to make them one, albeit a bit fuzzy. However, when using binoculars I only see through one tube. I think that is what I do when I use RDS. i.e. I just use my dominant left eye. In a practical sense, it doesn't really matter that I'm not using my right eye. Target focus, dot on target, bang. You might want to go to your local gun shop and look through some of the RDS to see how they work for you. I'm guessing they will be fine.
  18. I think I might now have seen everything!
  19. Funny! I took a course from him way back when. I wasn't all that impressed.
  20. Looks nice! Better than my oldest G17. It normally takes years of hard use to get that look.
  21. Z - The first of three what, SRO, Romeo ... ?
  22. Thanks for all the replies. I was guessing about 25-30. I'm sure everyone remembers the primer shortage around 2008. I stocked up as soon as I could. I shoot 9mm now and don't need so many LP.
