  1. Man. This .40 open nonsense was a real conversation killer. Saying you shoot .40 open is like jumping in the room. Opening your trench coat and yelling "Let's get weird!" But really. Please don't take that advice. Sent from my SM-G973U using Tapatalk
  2. Ya. The biggest thing is that your equipment runs and you mentally believe it will not let you down. So you can 100% focus on the task at hand. Sent from my SM-G973U using Tapatalk
  3. Preach brother. Couldn't have said it better. Sent from my SM-G973U using Tapatalk
  4. I've noticed that most people that buy a "cheaper" open gun usually buy a more expensive one within a year or so. Like your buddy. So you would actually be saving yourself money to just go with a high quality 2011 out of the gate. You don't have to spend 6k+ to get a custom gun with a builder who will stand behind it. There are a few smaller builders who are a bit less then that for their higher end guns The can also build them for less with things like polymer grips and not using hybrid barrels etc. I would base your decision more on what you get excited about and less on the amount of money.

  5. That's just a thing CO shooters say to justify not switching to open. It comes right after "we got the *thumb rest [generic]*" and before "we will have magwells next year". Sent from my SM-G973U using Tapatalk
  6. Nah. We have cookies and Co doesn't. They have to snack on granola bars or some stuff that's almost as good but not quite. Sent from my SM-G973U using Tapatalk
  7. If you were really having a midlife crisis you would be telling your new girlfriend. Sent from my SM-G973U using Tapatalk
  8. I wasn't wanting to argue. Just saying he shouldn't let the cost of 2 open guns keep him from switching. Not everyone can afford to purchase 2 out of the gate. It's very rare that you will switch to your backup. The shooting community is awesome too. If your gun goes down there is a good chance someone will help you out. Be it loaning you a part or a gun. We take care of each other. I would let someone shoot my gun if theirs broke. Sent from my SM-G973U using Tapatalk
  9. Ya. It would be nice. To have 2 or 3 open guns but you don't have to. If he buys a brand new Atlas or similar quality gun. It should be reliable for quite a while. Depending on how much you shoot. I sold my backup gun at the beginning of this season to help finance building a new gun. I have run my main gun all season, gone to 10 majors, and never needed a backup gun. Just make sure whatever gun you buy is quality. Sent from my SM-G973U using Tapatalk
  10. Shhhhhhhh. Wait til he buys the first one. Then bring it up. Sent from my SM-G973U using Tapatalk
  11. Def go open. Your not wrong that it's much more fun. No matter the cost it is worth every penny. Also you've come to the wrong place if you want to be talked into staying in CO. Sent from my SM-G973U using Tapatalk

    I believe the legion is cut for the new romeo 3 max. Thought all the new Sig dots will work on all the new Sig guns. Sent from my SM-G973U using Tapatalk
  14. I used to have a lot of ammo that didnt case guage. Then I switched to the Lee undersize die and full length crimp die and now I never have a round that doesnt case guage. Not over exadurating. Never. I still case guage because it's a extra insurance policy but in the thousands of rounds since getting those dies I have not had one fail.
  15. I get similar residue in my gun from HS6. Which people say is a somewhat dirty powder. But it just wipes off. I usually keep a microfiber cloth handy and keep my gun pretty oiled up. I wipe it off every 300 rounds or so. Or after every match. Mainly the chamber and feedramp area and put more oil on it.
