  1. I've never used a tourniquet and hope that I never have to, but I would think that a Boresnake in any caliber would work in an emergency.
  2. Stepped cases are a no go for pcc shooters with blowback actions.
  3. I have a gen2 G17 police trade in that is 100% stock except for a Houge Handall slip over grip that ads adds finger grooves to the very plain grip. With out it my hand swims around on it while i'm shooting. I think mostly due to the texture being very worn and it being a gen2. So, my question is, would the Houge Handall keep this gun out of production? I don't want to shoot against race guns right now. I've only shot PCC and am a B shooter, and I am new to Glocks. Thanks!
  4. Try performing a plunk test with your Glock barrel. Your bullets could be engaging the rifling instead of the case mouth. This would cushion the firing pin hit.
  5. Thanks for the great tips. I just got my Blackhawk holster and have been doing some drawing and dry firing. I already have noticed a difference. I will be doing some live fire drills this week. Draw fire at center mass a zone, then 2 shots at upper a zone, repeat. I figure that if I do this enough I should be prepared for my first match with the G17.
  6. Thanks for all of the great tips! Yes, the trigger pull is what I am struggling with, especially doing double taps. Aimed slow fire doesn't seem to be a problem though. A lot of dry firing may straighten me out. There are a few more local matches here in the north east before the weather turns to crap. If I feel brave I might give it a go. Thanks again.
  7. After shooting 1911's and BHP's almost exclusively for 20+ years, I decided that it was time to try something new. I will be using it for 3gun, USPSA matches, and Steel Challenge matches. Any tips for trigger control or helpful mods that wouldn't boot me out of production? Thanks!
  8. I recently solved a puzzling failure to eject issue. All that I have to say is, don't forget to clean under your extractor periodically.
  9. I had the same issue. I basically pinned the mag block in place with 4 machine screws, but I'm not worried about hurting resale value of an 80% lower.
  10. I just received a Wilson firing pin and a couple of hammer/trigger pins to throw in my bag for spares for my franken carbine. It runs on Uzi mags and a custom made buffer.
  11. Thats great advice! 14 more years, I can't wait! Welcome to the site.
  12. Slight thread drift here. I wholeheartedly think that a Steel Challenge match is absolutely the best way to introduce a newb to USPSA shooting. The standard USPSA range commands used, it is much less overwhelming (less to think about), and a lot harder to look like a dork.
  13. I use a Hoppes all metal rest for the front and support the butstock with sand bags. I find that bags with rice or other organic material are not solid enough. Now, adjust the front hight to a comfortable level, then build up the bags under the butstock to level out the rifle. Next, adjust everything so that the crosshairs are exactly where you want them. At this point I very lightly hold on to the rifle and all that is left to do is practice your very best trigger control.
