    9mm 1911

    thanks guys. The idea of wanting the slide going home a little sooner is what makes me think I may benefit from loading hotter. And again I shoot uspsa but I really don’t care how I do there it’s just for fun. I’d love a 1911 open gun for steel to see how good I am though!

    9mm 1911

    I appreciate the suggestions I’ll look into those some. I’m a youngster and the force of recoil doesn’t bother me. In fact some of my faster stage times were shooting a 45 acp out of a 1911. Maybe I need to try loading hitter and get more snap I don’t know I’m just finally sticking with this gun so I want to start experimenting is all. Thanks!

    9mm 1911

    Hey everyone. I’m shooting a 9mm 1911 and I want a good steel challenge load. I don’t care about power factor I just want somethin that recoils lightish and makes a decent ring on the steel. I know that light and fast is the mantra for an open steel gun but where to people tend to lean on iron sight steel gun? I’m using factory and not doing bad I just feel like I may be able to get better. Thanks ahead for any info

    I’m apparently phrasing pretty poorly. When I say I don’t care about points I should have said I don’t care about my performance. I agree that he should give people the correct calls but I don’t expect to score very high. I appreciate the point of view of straightening out the scorekeeper though you’re very right and I’ll work on being able to do that.

    I was agreeing with the last post above mine that the order a shooter goes through the stage can be interpreted in different ways and that’s what makes it tough for the RO to be sure that the individual engaged a target. Not that the rules are subject to arguing. And I never justified the rules to my behalf either I just didn’t understand it so I asked. I keep reiterating that I don’t care, that I accepted the penalties and that I was just curious. Thanks again for all the input

    Yeah it’s definitely subjective in a lot of situations. I certainly don’t want to give up points but I’m in the whatever gets us to the next shooter quicker mindset

    Yeah that all makes sense. If I sounded whiny i apologize. Let me be clear I don’t care one bit about my uspsa scores. Pulling the trigger is fun and that’s why I do it because it’s a fun game. That’s what I tell the people I shoot with when stage breakdown gets tedious I say guys we could all only hit no shoots and we’re still gonna go and have lunch just like if we’d won this thing. So I’m not griping about my penalties I was just curious if I could expect that or argue it the next time I leave one out. I appreciate all you guys taking the time to explain it to me it helps breaking it down into penalties at the shooter and then penalties st the target. Thanks again

    Yeah I can see how the fast ones might avoid a little nook that’s slow getting into for one long target or somethin. Not a problem for sure I have fun no matter how slow I go!

    Oh yes sir I believe ya It just doesn’t mke sense to me. and it clearly doesn’t matter it was my third match ever so there’s plenty more mistakes coming I was just curious

    Well hell. I’m not entirely sure how you can get penalized for not shooting a target and also penalized for shooting and missing but I suppose I don’t have to understand to get docked the points. Guess I better learn to find those cardboard devils pretty quick!
  11. Hey guys. I meant to post on here but completely forgot until just now. Several months ago I shot a local club match and did about how I would expect myself too. I forgot about a target that was hiding behind some barrels which didn’t surprise me cause my heart rate still skyrockets with the buzzer every time. But the guy running the timer gave me two FTE and two mikes for not engaging the target. I didn’t realize you got both. Was that a mistake or is that actually how it goes? Thanks in advance for your help!
  12. Alright everyone so I’m looking st Dawson precision and they sell the Tripp 10mm magazines for $34 then when you look for the 40sw magazines it says 10mm/40sw $39. I’m just wondering if they’re both sized for 10mm what’s the difference. Anyone able to explain the difference to a rookie? Thanks in advance!!
  13. One more for the RO Elite Target. I picked it up a couple weeks ago and it’s gone probly 600 rounds without a malfunction. And that’s using 38 Super mags with factory 9mm ammo. Trigger was decent out of the box but I figure we’re all going to tinker with the trigger so that doesn’t really make a difference in my mind. The one thing I’m not happy with is the finish. About 5 days worth of dry fire and there was holster wear up front on the slide. But again for the price point I’d definitely recommend it!
  14. Hey everyone. Just logged on to midway and starline brass is on sale. 38 supercomp is down to 15 cents apiece. Not low enough to go nuts but if you need it anyway take a look at it.
