  1. everyone should've take that soft sissy attitude home with them. USPSA is a privilege if you have it in your area. Some matches can afford to give the RO a free match and others simply cannot. There's medications for hormonal imbalances so people can get back to a normal life that doesn't include so much thirst for recognition. Please everyone in that squad call a doctor and get some help [emoji1787] Sent from my SM-G973U using Tapatalk
  2. my buddy had the same issue recently with his having trouble in majors. Called CZ and they admitted they got a batch of bad extractors in a run if pistols out there. They made it right and sent him new extractor. No more issues in the latest 1k rounds. Call them and they'll send you a new extractor Sent from my SM-G973U using Tapatalk
  3. So there's many recommendations I could make but you verbalized the most important aspect of your future success which is your vision. Carry Optics i think will be the division to settle in to for you as any improvement you can make in vision will ultimately help you shoot faster and accurately. It truly is a fun division, I dabble in it when I'm not doing Limited, as you have the hi capacity but must respect the points more so than Open. Plus, you can buy ammo straight off the shelf very affordably if you don't have any loaded up. CO double its participation last year and I assume it will overtake Open in participation within the next year or two. Good luck!
  4. 7.5 grains at 1.160 jhp gives me 172-174pf. Pretty flat load and not dirty. might go up another tenth to get that uber flatness. Gun is Tanfo Springfield P9 with no popple holes Sent from my SM-G973U using Tapatalk
  5. Rowdy gave the best advice then. Compete with either of your guns although it seems the ergonomics of the M&P are better for you. Practice a lot with some of the new colleagues you are hopefully making at these matches. Then at the end of the year or early next year, when you have gotten 20 matches of experience, decide on which division you'd like to settle into with equipment that fits your budget BUT also leaves you plenty of room for the cost of ammo.
  6. So what are you personal goals? just to go pull the trigger or perform well in relation to the better shooters, while enjoying yourself and making new friends? Sent from my SM-G973U using Tapatalk
  7. I run a 10 pound spring in mine but my slide was significantly lightened to get to 10ish ounce. It hits the hands a little harder with the 180 projectiles but the sights are back on target fast Sent from my SM-G973U using Tapatalk
  8. Your reasoning is sound and production is the way I'd go until you decide to reload one day. 9mm is very affordable and most will make minor. Federal even makes official uspsa ammo for minor now. Production had the biggest growth of any division in the last few years and that will only continue. If high capacity is something you'd like to stay in them Carry Optics is a great division. Doubled its participation last year and I feel it will usurp open in the next 2-3 years as far as participation. I recently bought an M&P CORE slide kit, threw a dot on it and some taran tactical basepads which got me to 23 rounds. When I need a break from limited major I go directly to carry optics. good luck Sent from my SM-G973U using Tapatalk
  9. I only use it in 40 major. just went on hodgdon website and they don't even list 9mm under bullet calibers when you choose WST. Only 38 special, 40 & 45 showing. I'd stay with a faster powder such as Titegroup or 700-x. I use 4.0 grains in my M&P 5 inch CORE of either powder at 1.145 which gives me 135-139pf. I like the snap as my gun is ready to fire before I'm back on the trigger. Also, doesn't feel too much different from my 40 major loads either Sent from my SM-G973U using Tapatalk
  10. it really depends on the coating. I tested many different coated bullets because I was intent on using titegroup. I settled on Ibejiheads as they smoked the least for me. I certainly see the smoke when I watch my videos, which is very little, but I've never noticed it while I'm actively shooting a stage. Sent from my SM-G973U using Tapatalk
  11. where are your finding one? I run one on my limited gun and it's been fine for about 6k rounds now. Looking for another currently. Open is a different beast I guess Sent from my SM-G973U using Tapatalk
  12. yep I still use it for 9 minor without hesitation Sent from my SM-G973U using Tapatalk
  13. Not necessarily! my overall length is 1.205 inches. You will have to load closer to factory length so you will need less powder. Start at 4.0 grains 1.125 OAL and chrono. Make 10-20 rounds of 4.0, 4.2, 4.4, 4.6 Sent from my SM-G973U using Tapatalk
  14. Used titegroup for 2 years in my 2011s. 4.6 grains @ 1.205 gives me 168pf in a 5 inch barrel and 172pf in a 6 inch barrel. Recently, I switched to WST and like it much better. Standard deviation is less than 5, meters much better (TG was constantly up or down 0.1gr) and gun takes much longer to get extremely hot unlike titegroup. Titegroup would have the gun feeling like a flamethrower was heating it up within 100 rounds. Titegroup is always my go to if I'm unable to find WST. WST charge: 4.9gr @ 1.205 in 5 inch tungsten sleeved KKM barrel is 167-168pf. 172-173pf in 6 inch KKM BARREL Titegroup: 4.6gr @ 1.205 in 5 inch tungsten sleeved KKM= 167-171pf 6 inch barrel=170-175pf Sent from my SM-G973U using Tapatalk
  15. An all steel frame will have an entirely different feel than as plastic fantastic. Ask some of the competitors away your local match and see if there's something that fits your hands properly Sent from my SM-G973U using Tapatalk
