  1. I ordered a square fine norton India stone and some honing oil. It’ll be here tomorrow. Is there a particular process to follow, method? I’ve seen smiths use sharpie on the slide rails to indicated areas needing thinning. Do I just try to focus on indicated areas or simply make 3 smooth full passes on each side then test fit the slide to frame? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Good Evening all, I recently picked up a spare complete 9mm upper from a fellow member here for my new TSO 40. The upper is in really nice shape, however it’s much tighter on my frame than my oem upper... too tight. It seems to me that the slide rails just need to be thinned as the slide is a hair to wide. Any advice on what to use and how to do so? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Welp, guess all that milling/ lightening for my shadow 2 to be legal was for nought. Hopefully LOK will offer some tungsten weighted grip options. That’s how it goes sometimes.
  4. I went to a local store and handled both again side by side. That TSO is just so at home in my hand. It melts into my grip perfectly. I went ahead and ordered a new TSO 40 sw from Big Daddy Unlimited for $1580. Then I came across a member here on the forum selling a complete 9mm TSO upper for $400. Brand new TSO with a complete 9mm conversion for the price of the edge I was looking at. Very very pleased!!!! I need some 9mm mags though, anybody have 1 or 2 to spare?

  5. This sounds good, I can definitely incorporate that as well. That’ll help me get used to that d/a to s/a follow up transition. Good tip. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. I decided to work on this at the range: 100 reps: -Bullet chambered, hammer down, holstered -3-6 second random beep on my shot timer -Draw and fire one shot in DA on a target at 12 yds -drop hammer, holster, repeat I’ve been twice a week outside of standard shooting. HUGE improvement on both my draw form, first shot time, and confidence firing in DA. I plan to focus on this for the next several weeks. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. I’m wanting another toy to play with. I’d like to pick up a new limited major pistol. I’m so torn between these two it’s not even funny. As most of us are, I am really fond of the 2011 platform. About 6 months ago I moved to CO and shoot a cajunized CZ S2 with SRO. I have really come to love the CZ platform. I am deadlocked here... For those with trigger time on both rigs, please share your experience/ insight/ comparison. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. This sounds like a very practical/ helpful drill. I will try to give 15 minutes or so a day to this. This seems like a good approach. Thank you. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. I’m a recently new shooter to the CO division. I spent my first few months with a 34 and then move to a complete Cz S2 build from CGW. It’s been a few months now and I’m very happy with the pistol, I just need to better myself using this type action. I’m having issues with the first shot anxiety especially on Virginia count stages. I’m taking way too long trying to line up and squeeze the trigger for a controlled clean shot. Typically, even if out of my desired sequence, I shoot a full target first to ensure a decent hit, before proceeding to any tuxedo/ partial cover targets. This is not ideal, however it’s what I feel most comfortable doing at this time. I’d like to work on getting over this What drills have you developed to work on this that first DA shot? Thanks in advanced. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. I would 1st adjust your over travel screw all the way back to ensure that’s not the case. If not see my diagram below, you need to remove some material from your disco.
  11. This is all excellent advice, hopefully we can keep this going for all new incoming RO’s!!! I went ahead and ordered myself a new timer in celebration of getting my card, I’m super excited to continue and grow and learn in the sport! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. David, I’ll be taking it in Gonzales, Louisiana Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. To your point Joe, I have seen shooters do this. While I don’t think it’s sportsmanlike to cause I ruckus I know some who do. Some of the worst scenes I’ve witnessed were very veteran shooters. This is not a part of the service I look forward too, but it will come with the territory unfortunately. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Good afternoon, I’m excited to be taking my NROI cert class this weekend with one of my local clubs. I’m really excited to better learn more about our sport, regulation, procedures. I’ve been shooting for quite a few years now and usually end up running a tablet at matches, so I figured why not further my involvement and education. I’ve been brushing up on all the rules and practice tests, however I must admit I’m still a little intimidated for what comes AFTER I pass. I can remember this one time a few years ago as a shooter when a quick thinking RO stopped me amongst a unknowingly dangerous situation. During the course of fire I had a softer shot occur while shooting at a small steel popper. I just assumed I missed. The gun failed the chamber the next round, I racked the slide to load a new round. Before I realized what had happened, my RO stopped me. I failed to register that the “soft” round was a squib. The bullet had stopped and barely cleared the chamber. The following attempts at chambering rounds were making making contact and preventing the slide from fully closing. Thank god it had not gone an 1/8” of an inch deeper. That RO was more aware of what had happened that I was! I realize that there is experience involved in these types of situations, however I guess my biggest concern is that I encounter a new/ inexperienced shooter, like I was at that time, and I won’t catch a less than obvious safety issue. I’m lucky enough to have a friend who is an incredibly versed/ experience RO I know I can’t count on for help learned the ropes. Those of you who are RO’s, would you care to share some tips or experiences that new incoming RO’s could benefit from. I’m looking forward to further learning and growth in this sport and want to be the best RO I can be! Thanks all!!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
