  1. I think this is part of what is helping with the growth in Carry Optics and PCC, production holding steady even though people aren't happy about the 10 round limit, and would contribute to significant growth in limited if limited minor wasn't hurt by the scoring. Back in the day, we all reloaded but there are a LOT of people that don't want to sit there and pull that crank for hours and to be honest, I have had about enough of it myself.
  2. I am going through the same process right now with a Glock 22 that shoots way left. I shoot all of my 9s and other 40s straight and most other people's Glocks straight but this one is definitely off and low round count to boot.
  3. I never said matches were all 8-8-8...can you quote that? Maybe even tell me what you think the work typical means as that could be where the disconnect is. Typical <> "always" So instead of continuously misreading what I write, how about telling me what is typical at these better matches that would make me all giddy about a 15 round production magazine?
  4. Since the max scoring targets per firing position is 8, I would say 8 tends to be pretty typical...but I didn't say every match I go to has only 8 round strings...can you quote where I said that? I don't think forcing extraneous round counting on the 10 and under crowd vs good stage setup makes for a better match. Are you one of those Open/limited guys that hates getting beat by production shooters?
  5. I think these are good points. No sense in changing minor...especially since factory ammo will easily make 125 pf. Either give minor their own divisions (which doesn't make anyone's major gun obsolete)...or just go all minor.
  6. The caliber wars are over, diversity is in full swing, and the insignificant holdout agencies will eventually get swept up into one of the bigger agencies' purchase contracts. If HRT can get the job done with a Glock 17 then I am not sure why the Amtrak Police can't do the same. In the meantime we can thank the 300 officer agencies for their massive contributions to the 40 cal brass supply. Which 9mm are you consolidating away from?
  7. With typical 8 round strings how is 15 rounds in production going to make production a big attraction?
  8. The comment of mine that you quoted, bolded, and apparently disagreed with was clearly about velocity being the same. It is obvious 150 is < 165 (I think we have moved on from that) and what does the local gun shop have to do with physics? You can buy 9mm major online, here is one example: https://atlantaarms.com/products/9mm-major-147gr-jhp-elite.html Atlanta Arms is not immune to lawsuits and they don't IQ test before each sale. How does pressure damage one of two identical guns (except for cartridge), firing identical bullets at identical velocities, more than the other if neither case is rupturing? What formula calculates the extra damage? I think I shot some 225 PF ammo in a Glock 21...did I damage it more than shooting 175 pf ammo in the Glock 17? Superdude posted a formula that offhand appears to be correct for recoil force but I don't see pressure in there anywhere. I am curious how your side questions about my Glock 17 are going to help explain what you haven't explained so far with math?
  9. Obviously case capacity matters when reloading but we all know 9mm can make major with the case capacity it has. If 357 sig and 9mm major are both loaded to the same pf in identical guns using the same 124 gr bullets, how does case capacity result in "blazingly faster" velocities in 9mm major that destroys guns sooner or makes them harder to shoot than than the 357 sig? Which formula uses case capacity to prove that?
  10. No, you are either struggling with math or english but yet still insist on arguing.
  11. Nonsense. You'll notice all of the relaxed rules in production on grip stippling, finger groove removal, and trigger swaps...because people complained and they were dumb rules. These are just a few of the many obvious examples of changes based on "feedback."
  12. It will still be the biggest most popular divison, even bigger, but it will be limited minor. This is something best left to big picture people so save your same old tired suggestions. Either USPSA is going to adapt or someone else (possibly IDPA with more rules changes) will accommodate and kill the USPSA...fine with me either way. It is dumb to have your largest division with the broadest possible market appeal forcing people to reload a dying cartridge to have the "right gear." Velocity is velocity. 165pf velocity from 9mm is not "blazingly" faster than 357 sig using the same bullet regardless of case capacity.
  13. I have yet to see a loaded gun jump up and start shooting people by itself.
