  1. Made GM in RFRI and M in RFPI by basically practicing with nothing but cardboard and paper plates. I did pick up some steel a few months ago; and I have enjoyed getting to shoot it. But, for me at least, I would not consider it a game changer. Both methods have positives & negatives. For me, putting in the time at the range would be more important than the target material. So if purchasing some steel would cut into your ammo budget, my vote would be to put the money into ammo and practice.
  2. I just picked up some steel from Shoot Steel a couple of months ago, and I have been very happy with it. Great folks to deal with during the order process and delivered in about a week.

    Fault lines?

    Thank you. Including the history on how imaginary lines use to be the case and you were never allowed to shoot with your foot past the line of cover adds some light to the topic. With this being the case, to me, removing the word other from 3.6.3 C would help reduce the confusion.

    Fault lines?

    Bear with me, I am a newbie trying to learn and understand. So, I went and read through the rules on fault lines. The one which seemed most appropriate in this situation was 3.6.3 as mentioned by others in this thread: 3.6.3 C. A shooter who engages a target while faulting the line (which is defined as the shooter touching the ground or other objects on the non-cover side of the fault line) shall be assessed a PE. I can follow the logic that nothing in the rules prohibits using the inner edge of the board as a fault line. But, how do you navigate around the words “other objects” referenced in the rule? Other: A thing that is different or distinct from one already mentioned or known about. Object: A material thing that can be seen and touched. I can grasp how if paint or tape was used, the paint or the tape would be the “object” not the 2x4, but this does not seem to be the case in this situation. The included quotes seem to ignore the word "other" in the rule. So, the rule does not prohibit one from declaring the inner edge of the 2x4 as the fault line. But, the 2x4 is still the object, yes? And, the top of it is not a thing that is different or distinct from the 2x4 already mentioned. It is just a different side of the same object, yes? Can anyone with the opinion that this was within the meaning of the rules shed a little more light on how/why the top of the 2x4 would have been an "other object". Thanks.
  5. Thanks. This is exactly the kind of info I was seeking.
  6. Great advice thanks! The generic part was mostly intentional as I was curious if others found it easier to add speed to an accurate run or the other way around. But, if it will help the discussion, the stage I was shooting was Speed Option. Numbered left to right excluding the stop plate my current order is #4,3,2,1,Stop (Right to left, straight across), Sequence "A". Sequence "B" was #3,4,2,1,Stop. This was with RFPO. My current classification in RFPO is A, just made A last month with an 11.28 on Speed Option (Average 2.82/string, ~89% of the peak time). No draw, rimfire; but sequence "B" is faster because my first two shots are faster shooting the closer plate and having the gun continue in that direction towards plate #4 for the second shot. While with sequence "A", the first shot is slower to plate 4 and then there is the direction change to come back to the left. I totally agree that it has to be speed AND accuracy.
  7. Both. Though I will admit that a crazy fast string with just a tiny miss would feel more like a win than a crazy accurate string that was slow.
  8. Two different shooting sequences for a stage “A” and “B”. Initial evaluations show sequence “A” to be the more accurate (~23%) order. While, sequence “B” feels more instinctive/natural which results in faster (15%) times. Is it easier to increase speed while maintaining accuracy, or is it easier to dial in accuracy on the naturally faster sequence? Which shooting order would you dedicate your training time to in future sessions? Why?
  9. This was my first thought. Check to see if the issue is when the hammer is down. If not, did the pistol have the issue before you installed the C-More? I have three different Buck Marks, and they all run CCI Standard Velocity without any issues.
  10. Per the 2019 SCSA Rulebook: Appendix H9 - Pistol Caliber Carbine Division. Special Conditions: 4) Full auto, burst fire, mechanically aided bump fire, and binary fire will result in a procedural on the first instance, and a disqualification for any subsequent occurrences, (unsafe gun handling)
  11. Striplin Custom Gunworks can hook you up with an excellent 90° mount for the C-More. Plus, he has the thumbrest and grip adapters if you decide to change out the grips. https://striplincustom.com/collections/buckmark-accessories One thing I recommend that I did not see you mention: change out your extractor with the TANDEMKROSS "Eagle's Talon". I went from a stovepipe every 200-300 rounds to virtual none after the switch.
  12. Plug'R USA. I like that they are shaped so nothing protrudes into the barrel.
  13. If it isn't too much trouble, I would like to see the side shot. Either way, thanks for posting. Been wanting a fiber optic replacement for mine, but could never find one.
  14. Do you have any photos of it installed in your gun you could post?
