  1. Thunder Valley is still owned by the same owner, just leased to someone different now. It wont be used for shooting again unless something drastic changes.
  2. Load up day prior while packing and going through my checklist. If it feels funny I've got time to swap springs or grab different mags. I also use a AC condenser brush to clean my mags but may go to the ziptie and microfiber method for space reasons. As said before cycling springs wears them out not staying compressed. Side note I always take extra springs to the match. Cheap insurance for myself or any other shooter to finish the day.
  3. Little update, new lodge owners are doing monthly USPSA matches in the bays with talk of buying a couple hundred acres of land near by to open a complex again if they have enough interest and can work out a deal. -per the MD of the USPSA matches No word on shooting in the caves or major matches until they finalize anything.
  4. At this point just call/email STI and explain your issue, I bet they send you a new mag.

    Preferred grip tape

    I did silica carbide on my gun its held up well for 3 years of 3gun abuse. If I went going permanent I would use 3m walk way grip tape from the hardware store and cut to fit how I wanted. The glue is stronger than talon's. I have it on a metal frame gun and it hasn't sweated off or noticeably slid in the last year.
  6. LOK does custom cuts for their grips, all you have to do is email their customer service and explain what you want.
  7. I prefer tekloks for the small adjustments I can make.
  8. I am really liking the Innovative Targets star. Uses a trailer hub for the bearing so its grease-able and easily replaced. The base has a built in paper stand for added no shoot fun and the star portion itself is removable so that you can put a spinner on.
  9. 36/70 coarse from amazon. Jb Weld as my adhesive, I was even able to build up a palm swell on my lim major gun. Works great in wet weather, after it cured I had to knock off some rough edges but no big deal. If you do the palm swell watch for runs as it dries, I had to reform the swell as it was curing.
  10. I used a 36/70 silica carbide mix. It's easy to hold even wet. I would like to add a palm swell on my next set, mainly because I like it on my limited gun and want the same feel on the SS gun.
  11. Roughnecks are more aggressive. If you want the most aggressive and make weight get a set of lok grips in whatever shape you want, apply JB weld and coarse silica carbide. It's not as rough as the PT evo micro pockets but it's more than enough. I have cuts and nearly bleeding in my hands from my coarse just from a basic local match with like 200rnds.
  12. I've done bags, backpacks, pull behind carts, and jogging strollers. For me I hated the dead weight with a cart and my shoulders got tired and sore with a bag or pack. Jogging stroller with big wheels was the easiest on me. Plenty of space for multiple shooters and if you shoot 3gun you can add ATV gun racks for your long guns.
  13. It's hard to beat LOK Roughnecks on a 1911. They even do custom palm swells just email their customer service and explain what you want they can make it happen.
  14. The description on their V3 grip says the ICE is a good choice for their grip. I would assume it needs small fitting, but you may get lucky. https://www.blackmountainfirearms.com/product-page/2011-pistol-grip-v3
  15. Another option is remove your muscles from the equation not allowing you to anticipate recoil and drive the gun down. Bring your gun up and roll your shoulders straight down dropping them into a little pocket. Forces your arms to move with your upper torso and helps eliminate some muscle during firing.
