  1. I ordered in February, so I’m guessing 6 months for me to get a gun. My friend ordered his on Black Friday. He also mentioned he got some sort of coupon with his gun so he was 100% happy with the weight and he loves his gun so far. I like it too. I was nervous to buy a custom gun sight unseen, but after playing with his, I’m confident I made the right choice.
  2. I just got to play with a honcho yesterday for the first time and I’m very excited for my gun to arrive. Fit and finish were excellent based on a quick look over. The balance was great and I’m super excited to get mine in August/September.
  3. Field of view, lower bore for easier zero'ing, better ejection, less weight, and moar sexies
  4. I shot a Erebus next to a Staccato P and the difference was noticeable, but not worth $2000 for me. If you are choosing between an Athena or an Erebus, I would go with the Erebus. The Athena just doesn't have a place in competitions for me. It would be in open anywhere, so you might as well get the Erebus.
  5. Totally agree. I’m just curious because I know that they used to have a ETA on the order page, and now it’s gone. Or at least, I can’t seem to find it. So I’m just curious. And I’ve seen a bunch of the sales posts on Facebook. Practically any holiday has them throwing up some sort of sale.
  6. @HMFIC03, Just curious, I'm no longer seeing a ETA on the website regarding the Honchos. What is the estimate for Race Shop guns right now?
  7. So STI was “recently” bought out and changed hands. I think this started in 2018, saw a lot of movement in 2019, and is full blown new way of working in 2020. The new group is all prior service dudes who wanna make tactical guns kick butt again. They improved QC, improved parts (all parts of tool steel now from what I understand), and improved models to make ideal “duty” guns. This is good for the “Tac” world, as we now are getting 2011s that are good to go out of the box for duty guns. Every staccato I have held (4 now) have been properly fit with good extractors. I had a DVC 3 gun, DVC limited, Tactical 5.0, and a tactical 4.0 before this new take over. All the guns were good, but each had little issues I had to correct (or extractor tension incorrect, grip too tight, beaver tail fitted poorly, safety digs into hand, etc). I’ve been very impressed with the new staccatos and just got a staccato C2 for my new carry gun. I’ve personally always thought that CCO style guns were the best, and this C2 is almost perfect. Wish it were a 4.25 slide, but I’m happy with it. Shoots nice and flat and is very light. Let me know if you have any questions. I’ve been trying to get STI’s approved for duty at our department and have been involved in conversations about it with Hilton Yam and Buck Pierson. These new STI’s are honestly great. I really like them and plan to buy more.
  8. Then go for the Erebus 100% if you got the money. Those things are gorgeous and sexy as all get out. They do shoot quite nicely, but again, I doubt it’ll be THAT much better than your DVC-P.
  9. Honestly for 3 gun I wouldn’t even get a fancy pants comp’ed gun. I’d go for a STI Staccato Duo for $2500. They shoot remarkably flat. I shot mine next to an Atlas Erebus about a month ago, and while the Erebus was nicer, I certainly don’t think it was worth $3500 more. I don’t think it would change your placing in a big 3 gun match.
  10. Impact Ammo makes really great rounds. I bought a thousand and so far it has been great. They use VV powder and it’s super clean and super soft. I recommend them highly.
  11. They take standard 2011 mags. So if you wanna get $50 gen 2 STI mags, or $130 MBX mags, it’s up to you. Triarcs are typically semi custom builds that I wouldn’t recommend changing a ton of stuff on, mainly due to all the custom cerakoting they do. All 2011 parts should fit though, but you will need to fit them. Triarcs in general are good, well fit guns, but no one really uses them in the competition world. They are kinda like all those gucci glocks. Agency Arms makes a gorgeous glock, but it is 80% sexy factor. Triarcs have a certain amount of gucci appeal which you have to pay for. Plus 9mm 2011s aren’t used really in USPSA, and in 3 gun, cheaper models are typically used. As a side note, staccato p is very similar to the triarcs, and does the majority of what they do for a significantly smaller amount of funds. I’d choose the staccato p 4.45 right now if I wanted a 9mm 2011.
  12. This is key. I match directed a multigun last year and it was a HUGE pain compared to USPSA. You really have to have look at every single stage and make sure they all take about the same time. Also look at the stuff you have to reset. If you are throwing star after star downrange at the end of the run, it takes too much time. Set up Texas stars in the beginning of the stage, in spots where the participants can start resetting while the shooter is still going. Set up KD steel the same way. Paper/quick reset at the end. Match flow is your new god. I did 8 stages with about 80 shooters in less than 8 hours (8am to 3pm). If a stage takes longer than 1 hour to run a squad, you done eff'ed up. We did awards and prize tables and were done by 5pm (including tear down).
  13. Try them with the stock STI parts. I’ve had issues with my gen 2 mags when I swap out the guts. when I leave them stock they perform perfectly.
  14. Major is a 5-10% boost depending on the match and your shooting style. I’ve shot Limited minor for years now cause I shoot for fun and training. I just bought a 40 cal edge this past week to finally give myself an edge. I knew I wouldn’t shoot uspsa if it required that I shoot 40 ( I hate 40), so I shot what I had and what I enjoyed. Now I want that dang M card and it’s been hell trying to get it with minor.
