    Dot Tracking?

    Agreed with everyone. Repeatability is key. The consistency there allows you to develop the rhythm to go fast.

    How much is to much in a comp

    I was thinking that lead flavored toast is the next big thing after Nutella! Am I alone on this?? Haha I haven’t had to do it yet but I believe there is a good following of using 50/50 hydrogen peroxide and vinegar. Supposed to dissolve it pretty well. Then you pick out the rest that should be pretty loose. This is stuff that I’ve read on the forums so I can’t actually vouch for it. I also know of guys who spray Dillon case lube ito the comp between courses as some preventative Maintenance.

    Magpul question

    I had issues with dropping the mags freely when using ets. It seems to be hit or miss with that. Some people I have talked to have zero issues. Out of the guys that I know personally, we have not great luck with that on the ets. I have not had any feed issues with them so that is a plus. Great if I didn’t have to reload. My magpuls have been flawless for me since day one.

    Gen 4 G34 Beginner Load

    I agree on the titegroup loadout! It was definitely my favorite load in 9mm. It’s been a while since I’ve run mine but I think I ran mine at 13lbs but I was using a glock 22 conversion to 9. Good luck and happy shooting.

    Round Nose or Flat Nose for USPSA?

    It helped a lot when I was shooting 9 minor. Loaded swc. I was not as proficient at calling shots. Especially when shooting at my indoor range. Lighting was not as great in certain areas so holes were harder to see sometimes. Having the cleaner hole punch was nice. It helped it stand out.

    +1 on the cleaner holes! Easier to see holes in the target

    G34 carry optics which base pads and mags

    Unfortunately I don’t have one of those to try. Tempted to pick one up just to know...unless some one can chime in on it.

    Hummm.... not sure. I haven’t shot my glock in a while but I’ll check them in the gauge and let you guys know. I always shot the glock in local matches and never gauged them. Just got home and gauged them. Wow. They fail horribly. Glad I never went to a major match with them.

    SJC Frame weight and thumb rest install

    Have you used a thumb rest before? The first one I had on my glock was the pin style. At first I mainly used it as indexing for the support hand. After while shooting with it. I found that I was starting to use it more and more for recoil management. I actually broke one of the pin style. I’ve since switched to a 2011 and really use the thumb rest for recoil management. I’d still recommend doing an inspection on everything periodically for sanity.

    SJC Frame weight and thumb rest install

    Hehe. Possibly. It was a long day of work followed by a late night trip to Walmart for a dremel and they didn’t have a lot of options on sanding bits. And an event the next day. Some could have got mixed in at some point. It was like @jerkeejoe it would have been a lot easier if I had one picture to go off of. I couldn’t find anything either.

    SJC Frame weight and thumb rest install

    if you do it yourself I’m sure you can do it a lot better than I did. Just take your time and buy some various sanding bits for a dremel. I was very limited and in a time crunch. Take a little out at a time and check the fitment of the eye.

    Getting Grounded...

    That should be good. Let us know how it goes.

    SJC Frame weight and thumb rest install

    Yeah. I’ll take a picture of it tonight when I get home. It’s not very pretty. I did it late one night. And I had a competition the next day...

    SJC Frame weight and thumb rest install

    I would have the same concern that you have. I haven’t used their thumb rest but I would worry about the frame flex as well. Drilling into the gram was the easy part. I did it to install their micro dot mount. I believe it’s he same hole size and screw in both appplications. The painful part was inletting enough material to fit the eye. This is what the screw threads into. I just went slowly with a dremel until the eye was into the frame enough to clear the guide rod. I have a gen 3 frame. My buddy said his experience was a lot easier than mine but I do think he said that you have to convert to a gen 3 guide rod for it. At least that’s what I think he said.

    STI DVC Steel recoil spring

    I haven’t used any of them but if you went with cheely I would have it set back. My thoughts is since you have a shorter pistol keep it as far away from the compensator for any blast. Also having the sight a closer to you makes the glass seem even bigger. When I first found myself doing the dot dance I would bring the pistol in a little closer to me to find the dot quickly then drive back to a normal shooting position.
