    90 degree angle mag pouches for single stack 1911

    Yep. I've been using these for the past couple of years. Really like them. I recently went to bullets out. Like that lot too.

    Is Single Stack Dead?

    I shoot single stack because I am a dinosaur. For me after a 1911 everything else is just a gun. Except for my 6" Ruger Redhawk!!

    1911 weaknesses

    That has been my only issue, and it is a rare one. With just over 20K through my SA loaded .45 I have yet to have either a FTF or FTE in either practice or competition.

    Previously used Classifiers now show "P" Flag

    FWIW all the "Y" flags that were changed to "P" are now back to "Y". Not sure why this happened, but the explanation above makes sense as a possibility.

    Previously used Classifiers now show "P" Flag

    That makes sense. All the changed flags were from the same match. Thanks for the info. I'll keep an eye on it and see if they revert to "Y" again.

    Previously used Classifiers now show "P" Flag

    Thanks. I read that already. but these have changed from "Y" to "P". They had been previously been used and are still within the range of scores that would still be used to calculate my classification. I am wondering if there is an explanation as to why the flag changed from "Y" to "P"??
  8. I was looking at my classifier record. I have four Classifier scores that had previously been flagged "Y" and used, now suddenly they are showing as "P". Any idea what this may mean?
  9. I went with Ben Stoeger. DAA belt, 6 racer pouches (bullets out), BOSS hanger. I use a Redhill Tactical double layer holster. Very happy with the set up.

    How slow is slow enough?

    I can't really add anything regarding technique to what's already been posted. One thing I try to keep in mind is that this is a journey and not a destination. Don't try to rush your improvement or beat yourself up over your performance. Each match is a learning opportunity. Focus on doing better than you did last time. Keep working on basics rather than focusing on the results.

    First Official Match, First DQ

    Really didn't make me feel better. I knew I screwed up. Sorry for even bringing it up. I wish it had not happened, clearly I need to refocus myself.

    First Official Match, First DQ

    I get that. I was pretty sure I was on that road. Always super careful, never compromise safety for speed. Then I screwed up. Paid the price and learned a lesson. Was not trying to make light of it, but the RO was a M class shooter and right after I holstered after showing clear those were the words he said to me. Your point is well taken however, no matter how long you go, there is no guarantee you won't.

    Huh?

    First Official Match, First DQ

    It is flat wrong to think only new guys who don't know the rules get DQ'd. A couple of matches ago I was sitting comfortably in the shade while the next shooter got ready. I heard the "Make Ready" command and then saw people scattering in front of me. I looked up and saw the muzzle of the M Class shooter staring me in the face on the ground where he had dropped it while re-holstering.

    First Official Match, First DQ

    As has been said many times, there are only 2 kinds of shooters, those that have been DQ'd and those that will. I went 32 matches, over 180 stages before my first, which was yesterday. 2nd shooter, first stage. Shooting though holes in walls and narrowly slits. Zipping right along, moving backwards and to my left (right handed shooter), and I broke 180 bigly during a reload! So there's something I'll think about long and hard. Better still I drove 3 hours and spent money on a hotel. Let's just say it was a long ride home!
