  1. I hate to say it but the TacSol comp is cool looking BUT is the worst POS out there. I love all of their products but the comp it WILL lead up badly and it will affect the round to the point you will get some keyhole rds. If you have 10K thru it without cleaning I am surprised the bullet will even come out. Take it off and look from the threaded end out to the crown... I bet you will not like what you see. I actually threw mine away I could not in clear conscience even sell or give it away. I tried several others with some success but cleaning was still a issue then I changed to TK game changer PRO ( and I AM NOT a sponsored shooter ) end of problems After every match it comes off and goes in the 50/50 mix to soak 24 hrs. Being stainless there is no problem of oversoaking and damage. Comes out clean as new.
  2. Well said Thomas Nothing worse as a RO to say "didn't get the last shot" esp if it seemed to have been a fast string... the problem rarely is with pistols and as you said SV ammo and longer non comped rifle barrel's are a missed shot waiting to happen
  3. Ditto on the comp or a muzzle brake helping the timer pick up shots..... That being said the comp does alter the POI in my experience. No big deal as long as you sight in the gun the way you are shooting it ( with a comp ) Don't believe me Take a ransom rest and shoot with and with out and watch the POI move. Back when I was shooting Bullseye I got rid of the comp for that discipline …. YMMV
  4. I as a shooter or as a working RO would not want metal post at any tier two and above matches... but for local tier 1 matches it would not matter to me and if it helped with club cost then great
  5. Some are using stands and plate holders that present the 2inch side of a 2x4 to the shooter... does cut down on the hits on wood...
  6. Please take no offense ZZT... but if you can not break the 2nd shot... move and break the 3rd shot in less than 3 Seconds ….then you have work to do on this stage …. most shooters in a CF class would be hard pressed to shoot the stage from the center box in less than 3.5 and add 9 seconds of penalty you end up with 19.5 for your time This "might" help a D,C, and a mid to low level B but if they are gaming it … they will never improve over a mid B until they learn to move. Even though I gain on most of my competitors on this stage and should want it to remain a movement stage I would rather see it with no movement and end once and for all this discussion ….. 4 seconds was adopted to stop anyone from gaming the stage BUT it is a real punitive penalty for someone who can not move at all.... It is a shame in a shooting sport where a mobility handicaped shooter can fairly and evenly compete...…. till we get to this stage.... then we punish them because we are worried that someone will game the system.
  7. Well it looks like they pretty well screwed the elderly and handicaped…. 4 sec penalty for OL made it into the rule book foe 2019 so much for progressive thinking
  8. FYI Actually on page 68 0f the May 2018 printed rules copy for Steel Challenge..... the appendix for rimfire rifle and pistol notes that comps are allowed in iron and optic classes and in the case of rifle I highly recommend them or a side port muzzle brake model such as Allchin... especially if you shoot a standard velocity ammo... BTW the longer the barrel the greater the need for them to deflect some sound back to the timer one of the stages where times are missed the most is Speed Option for right handed shooters and 5 to go for lefties
  9. Well first impression of the loader is very good.... I still can load faster with just my hands but I don't have the problems she has.... Right now I am giving it 5 stars... If anything changes after some use I will chime back in. I made a video but it is too large.... anybody know how to make it 1.95 MB in size?
  10. https://zahal.org/product/maglula-ruger-10-22-speed-magazine-loader-unloader-22lr/ Priced like they are the only ones with them too @ $ 44.99 Also on Ebay… https://www.ebay.com/itm/Maglula-Ruger-10-22-Speed-Loader-Unloader-Magazine-22LR-LULA-LU30B-Set/172670306118?hash=item2833f3c746 @ $ 39.95
  11. I guess I will be a beta tester ( or my wife will be ) she has hand strength problems since having wrist surgery …. so it is a need will report after using it for awhile.
  12. Thank you they do look interesting....
  13. Looking for input/ recommendations on IN the ear electronic plugs ( not MUFFS ) There are several out there but the hard part is finding a pair that clips the gun shot AND recovers fast enough to pick up the clang of a steel plate.... they all pretty much pick up the voice commands etc. Experiences?
  14. That photo is befitting of your screen name
  15. Trust me it don't slow me down... that finger position depends on how big the transition... in this case it was almost 160 degrees so the finger came off the trigger as it does when I have to move... on Steel Challenge it never leaves the face of the trigger and I have NO problems with AD's as I said before YMMV a 8oz break suits my shooting style just fine.
