  1. Yeah John it was a great club. We had a lot of fun back then. If its any consolation, I learned an important never forgotten lesson. We have a pretty great club now too. Things change but stay the same sort of. Lol.
  2. Konkapot will confirm this piece of advice as he was one looking at wrong end of the gun but years ago we we having a match. I was r.o.ing after doing all setup for all the stages, props, etc so I was tired. Late in the day the safest shooter I know was shooting. To save myself 2 steps, I took a shortcut & got out of position. Mr. Safe shooter managed to get barrel of his gun hung up in wall netting & swept the entire squad. Problem was, I was out of position & couldnt see it. I knew it happened but if you dont see it, you cant call it. Konkapot explained in no uncertain terms how mad he was. I still remember to this day lessons... no matter how safe the shooter is, dont get lazy. It could have been a terrible accident but we got lucky. I never want to count on lucky again. Haha.. never want a chewing out from john "konkapot" again either!!!!! Everyone makes mistakes. Learn. Remember.
  3. Insurance would have "covered" my electronics but deductible was so high it wasnt worth it. It seems like the dr has to word things properly before insurance will cover it.
  4. Go as slow as necessary to make it right. Be sure magazine base is in the palm of the hand, fingers wrapping magazine, index finger pointing mag at mag well. Isolate the insertion movement repeatedly over & over. Then move mag further away continue over & over. Slowly moving further & further away extending the movement over & over. It will start to fall into place. No rushing! Over & over. Start at the end of the reload. Finish reload. Then just keep backing up. Adding in more distance & movements as you build on the initial insertion. Dont rush. If this doesnt make sense, pm me with contact info & I will send you pictures of what I am describing.
  5. That gun being 9mm is not a common choice for race guns. If you dont compete, you probably wont understand but 9mm gets penalized in scoring so really its a wonderful gun I am sure but has minimal value in race gun world. Hopefully this makes sense. The gun can compete but it loses points being 9mm. IOW cant really call it a race gun.
  6. It may be important to find out if your gun is 38 super or 38 supercomp... there is a difference
  7. We try to persuade folks not to do it. In my view, most people become a burden to the remainder of the squad when they shoot 2 divisions. Consider this... at least 1 shooter before your turn, you dont help tape or reset, during your turn & at least 1 shooter after you dont help. Then Maybe you only sit out 1 shooter before your next gun plus as you shoot & probably at least 1 shooter after you dont help. If youre a real go getter, maybe you fill in all the other turns helping but most... not all but most people shooting 2 guns hardly have time to help for a couple of shooters on their squad between all the changing guns & stuff. This means the rest of the squad is doing your work for you in this volunteer sport. I dont think its really fair to the rest of the squad. If you have 3 folks in 1 squad of 10 shooters shooting 2 guns, that basically leaves the other 4 people to do everything for those 3 people...
  8. I like Bad Dog custom guns. Colt has worked on 2 of my guns & built the 3rd 2011 I just got. Check out their facebook page.
  9. Perttime...Cool Still why would a person want gloves unless bitter cold or for bianchi barricade?
  10. I found a long soft bag 1 at our local Cabelas.... not sure how long now but my benelli w long tube fits. Measure before you assume both your shotgun & the bag...
  11. No external supporting devices in uspsa pistol which includes pcc I believe. I shoot 3 gun but not uspsa or 3 gun nation.
  12. My big question is Why would you want to wear gloves unless it is bitter cold? Sling has possible merit but not legal in uspsa...
  13. Any chance that you only noticed the 2nd 1 cracked this weekend & maybe it happened some other time & just now noticed after 1st one cracked?
  14. This is the truth. Once you spend that money on it, its no longer an $800 gun & holsters but a $1200 one with a street value probably less than the $800 you spent. Your $400 is gone completely & maybe more. If it doesnt run consistently now, even getting your money back may be hard. If you tell a perspective buyer it didnt run until you sent it off to get fixed... its likely to run off most buyers. IMHO, RIA is probably not a long term 1 owner gun for anyone that shoots much. Its an entry level gun to find out if you like the platform. Sadly if it doesnt run or perform, many people will blame the 2011 platform instead of blaming themselves for buying a cheaper version of said platform. I am not beating up on RIA specifically. If you have 1 & it runs consistently & shoots 2" groups at 25yds after 25,000 rds with no rebuilds, good for you. I am happy but I am saying odds of this are very slim.
