    The best PCC I could come up with

    I like that. A lot.

    JP jumps on the short stroke bandwagon

    I just ordered one but it’ll be a few months before I’ll be able to try it out for real.

    Par Timer app

    Yep, classic target for the logo. Mine has a play button (looks like a sideways triangle) that I can push. When I push it, it switches to a pause button, and I can toggle back and forth that way without starting from the beginning. If I want to start from the beginning after I've already begun, there's a slide that progresses through a string (like when you watch a movie and can pick the minute to go to) and I can either pull the slide back to the beginning, or restart from the main menu. I've had mine forever, so I suppose that it could be an older version?

    choosing 1-6 scope help

    I’ve never compared to a Steiner, but I can attest that the Burris glass is excellent. The reticle is very nice as well, though it could be a bit more daylight bright... unless that’s something that’s been improved recently.

    How are you accomplishing this? Pics? EDIT TO ADD: Just found the other thread where you discuss this. I’m already using a spacer to make my rifle length into a carbine length. What size spacer have you settled on? And did you do anything to/with the spring?

    Seriously??? You may haves just sold me!

    Yep!

    LOL. I guess I’ve been using that dry fire app for so long, I forgot that I paid for it at all! Whatever they want, it’s worth the price.

    choosing 1-6 scope help

    If your max range is 300-400 yards, a 1-4x will treat you fine— and don’t rule out the Burris XTRII 1-5x. These and other 1-4x can be picked up used in the BEnos classifieds for big savings! Lastly don’t scimp on the mount. Plan on at least another $100 for that. Also realize that going from a micro to any magnified optic, your gun is going to feel completely different than with the dot— way heavier and likely a different balance point. If you’re already used to the Aimpoint and like the way your gun handles, I’d recommend finding a friend with a similar rifle but with a scope and asking to borrow it for a match. If 90%+ of your matches are 230yds and under, I’d be very tempted to tell you to stick with the dot. Maybe even consider getting a magnifier on a flip or twist mount for the <10% of the time you’ll need it. I know magnifiers aren’t ideal, but if you’re rarely using it, it’s something to consider. I have yet to look through one, so don’t necessarily take this as a recommendation, but for awhile I was considering a .300blk build with a Primary Arms 4x or 6x magnifier on an American Defense mount. If the optic is decent (again, this is an unanswered question for me) it would be a versatile package that wouldn’t break the bank while still allowing you to keep your rifle lightweight when the magnification is not needed.

    choosing 1-6 scope help

    I don’t need a 1-6x right now, but my brain keeps telling me to figure out a way to get this C-more before that deal goes away. I’ll likely want one in the future and this is an amazing deal for a scope that has every indication of being a high end optic.

    Should an RO notice a squib?

    LMAO! I didn’t think of that actually, but my example shooter was in fact law enforcement!!!

    SCSA Stage Score analytics - ideas wanted

    . I’m just not sure if 20% is the magic number but I think it’s close. It would be smart to actually look at the data and come up with a number scientifically. For instance, I might average 1.80 per run on S&H. It’s not that unusual for me to go 1.65ish, which is in the 10% below average realm. If I got a 1.44 (20% of 1.80) then I’d seriously consider that the timer missed the last shot... but that’s also only increasing my splits by .05sec off my best, which isn’t exactly out of the realm of possibility. I’d definitely toss the idea around with different folks before settling on a percentage.

    SCSA Stage Score analytics - ideas wanted

    I’d say average scored string time per stage. I’d differentiate between overall and last 3-5 matches so you’re not artificially lowering your averages with times earned as a rookie vs. experienced. It might be good to also have an adjusted average time in addition to raw time. By that I mean, remove times that are, say, 20% slower than average. This way way the average “ggod run” time isn’t going to be tainted with equipment malfunctions. EDIT TO ADD: I’d also remove strings that are 20% (or whatever) faster than average as sometimes string scores are entered wrong into PractiScore and that would remove that bad data as well.

    Should an RO notice a squib?

    Another issue I've fond which makes RO'ing difficult in this regard is guys who mix various loads together in an effort to "clean out the closet" of the ammo they no longer use. This is especially prevalent with USPSA shooters who shoot some Steel Challenge for practice purposes only, so they don't especially care about their overall times. I once RO'd a guy shooting a .40 that had a comically loud major load, and in the same bucket he'd randomly mixed in a bunch of minor (or at least way quieter) .40's all loaded with the same bullet heads... so he couldn't tell what was what. Roll the dice with every shot, and one would shoot high, one would shoot low. Four shots of super louds followed by a "quiet" round sounded like a squib. He told me not to worry about it, so I didn't. Anyway, I've had plenty of instances where shooters will have an odd sounding load that still functioned fine, and they'll say, "Did you hear that? Doggone it, I must have had an XYZ mixed in there!' I'll just shrug and move on with my life. I'll sometimes have a similar issue happen myself if I don't bring along quite enough rounds and have to dip into a backup bucket of ammo to make it through the last stage, but I always know which rounds are what, and they're close enough in power to each other that nobody will notice the difference except me.
  15. I tried it for a bit without but prefer the extra trigger reach it gives me. Once I found the exact position my finger likes, I can’t imagine shooting without it. Finding the proper height adjustment did take some time though. I suggest sticking with it and trying all the different height choices before abandoning it.
