    1911/2011 pre travel setting

    I just slap through the whole thing on a 1911. I don’t think that you’ll notice a short pre travel vs no pre travel when shooting at speed in USPSA. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    What sights for gen 5 17 and 19?

    I prefer the Dawson adjustable sights but I’ve been looking at the TTI sights. The Taran front sight is a little wider and the fiber is crazy bright. I found that I like a slightly wider front sight and the adjustable is nice but I never change my load so there’s not a lot of point in them for me. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Unusual single stack Slide

    Finding a holster was my first thought too. As long as it makes weight I don’t think it will make a difference. It might take a few draws if you’re accustomed to a non-rail 1911 but after a few reps it will feel normal. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. I had a similar problem and I was over gripping with my strong hand. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Is trigger guard undercut allowed in IDPA SSP?

    Yes, Talon grips are good to go in SSP. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Hold on to them unless you just flat out dislike the guns. I have sold guns and gear after switching divisions and have regretted it almost every time. The only other reason would be if you have to sell to fund a purchase and I would try to hold out and just save up instead. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    "Indexing" your shooting belt

    I thought keepers were dumb until I saw a friends 3gun stage where his belt did the same while shooting a long gun. His loaded 2011 was swinging around his ankles. After that I decided it wouldn’t hurt me to spend an extra second putting on my belt. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Most SS guys I see are running some variant of the techwell. I’ve messed with one and dry fired it a bit but my vote still goes for the Dawson with No Gap insert. With the techwell, I still get hung up on the front from time to time. The Dawson just feeds the mags smoother and faster with no hang ups for me. The downside with Dawson is that you need Dawson basepads and you can break the plastic insert eventually. For what it’s worth I think the top few guys at Nationals all run a techwell.

    X5 competition load

    You’re welcome! That is a load I have used in a G34, Springfield RO, Shadow 1, and Shadow 2. It has ran well and felt great in all. I see some posts that 1.15 is too long but I haven’t found it to be an issue yet. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Enlarging Grip

    You mike try a couple of bicycle inner tubes or a few wraps around with skate board tape if you don't want something permanent. I would think the epoxy route would probably work pretty well and allow you to reshape the grip a bit if you don't like the blocky feeling of the Glocks.
  14. I used to just wrap the belt around whatever I was wearing but without the belt loops the belt would ride up or I would pull it up on a draw or reload. I now have a spare inner belt that I leave threaded through an old pair of shorts. It sounds lazy but I am a lot more likely to slide those shorts on with the belt already on than changing pants and putting on the whole belt. It makes practice go a lot smoother and still allows me to be lazy.

    I don’t know what mount he has but EGW makes a really good one. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
