  1. I have a friend who owns a KelTec Sub2000 and asked me if it is legal to shoot under USPSA Steel Challenge rules.... Thanks. Mark
  2. Dang it guys - I have still not found the CODA 3.5 and 5.5 in stock anywhere...Guess after their article appeared last month their inventory everywhere was scooped up by PCC shooters everywhere....Still looking....Mark
  3. Zack - I see you are shooting on Wednesday with Jessie, KC, and BJ.... I will be there Wednesday to visit with these shooters, watch your squad, and video all of them for my own training opportunities. I look forward to the opportunity to meet you and pick up some pointers from watching you also....Thanks Mark
  4. Anyone going? Just asking because I will be there for two days watching and video taping. Love to watch Jessie, KC, Shane, BJ, Max, Jerry, Doug, and others. They make it look so easy.....Mark
  5. Wanted to ask for recommendations from those here who currently utilize a mag holder to hold a Glock 9mm - 32 round mag with a mag extension mounted on your shooting beltt in the center of your back on a horizonal plane. Understanding that it needs to remain secure when running and gunning as a back (no pun intended there) up mag.... Make and Model please that you use and are happy with is appreciated.....Thanks Mark
  6. What Memphis said above but we use 1.5” angle iron that are two feet long each. Drill two holes in each one and mount it on the narrow side of the 2x4 like a mountain top. If hit it does not sound off like the plates and the bullet deflects to the left or right. Cost is $4.00 each and they have paid for themselves 5 times over so far I would guess....This is the way to go and can be purchased at any local metal shop.....Mark
  7. Guys - Thanks for your responses and recommendations. Ken V. saw my post and kindly sent me an email also. I have a copy of his book - Do you feel the need for speed - in route and because of the comments from the friends here I will read this book and give Ken’s recommended training tips to heart. Knowing that changing habits (good or bad) to consistant repeatable results take time I have loaded up about 8k rounds of 9mm and I also will be using my 10/22 Target Lite rifle in practice to save on overall ammo costs... Again my thanks to each of you who took the time to respond...I did not know about Ken’s book and the other recommendations related to stamina and using my 22 rifle are all great points.....Update late summer after I dedicate the needed time to see if I can step up to my personal challenge....Mark
  8. Wanted to ask the BE Forum braintrust what has worked for you...Proven results that has allowed you to become a better, faster, more accurate PCC shooter in the Steel Challenge arena.....I know many will say - practice, practice, practice - which I already do now but why not try things that are not in my bailiwick of ideas to see it trying something new and different will allow me to be the next Senior World Champion.....Thanks Mark
  9. Gunner - For Steel Challenge I was told by several PPC professionals that they sight in at 15 yards so I voted this way...As for USPSA courses that are not Steel Challenge - I do not know but will follow this thread to learn....Mark
  10. I have been running this trigger on my PSA AR for about 4 months now and it has run flawlwss.... I started with the CMC standard trigger but I was having incosistant results (double fire cycles and trigger reset issues). Dropped this system in and it has run flawless...Mark
  11. Going to order two TTI units to try based on the comments in this thread. Anxious to see how they function.
  12. Xtreme also for me....I shoot their 124gr mostly but also load and shoot some 147gr for the sub-sonic backyard fun shooting.... My TG load for the 124’s is 3.6gr with an OAL of 1.11 Mark
  13. The time to buy a reloading system is NOW when reloading supplies are affordable and easy to get.....Yes factory ammo is cheap right now but if you start shooting more and factory ammo pricing start going up and another ammo scare hits, and we all know it will, you will pay a premium for factory ammo and a reloading system and the components needed to support your itch..... I am not a wealthy person by any means but I have bought a couple of cases of factory ammo in the past 6 months but more so I have started loading up on my reloading supplies so when the next scare hits I can continue to shoot my 500-1000 rounds a month.... My vote - Buy a reloading set up NOW even if you leave it in the box....Mark
  14. The good news first - 1 - I have traveled to and watched two World SCSA matches and one National and I LOVE this shooting discipline 2 - I am fortunate to be friends with a local guy who has a plasma cutter and has started cutting AR500 targets so I have all of the targets and stands required to set up all eight courses, but I can only do four at a time due to my current target stand and hanger inventory 3- I am a USPSA member in good standing and I recently became a certified IDPA Safety Officer 4 - Other members have indicated that they are interested in shooting this discipline 5 - Range Owner (private owned club) is 100% on board with allowing me to start this up So hear me out and provide honest feedback, comments, and suggestions....If I venture down this pathway I want to be SAFE, have fun, and build it into a possible sanctioned club for SCSA - but I want to make sure I am ready and I have the participation to keep this going.....I live in a small town with several surrounding towns that equate to about a tri-city population of about 120k and there is also a active Air Force Training Base in our area... My thought was to start with the very basics - Set up several Saturday morning shoots where each Saturday I would set up 4 courses of fire and limit the number of shooters to two squads of 10....I have two I-Pads with a SCSA program loaded that allows for the shooters to be loaded and scores to be managed. I also have another SO that I work IDPA matches with that said he would help me and run one squad.... Now the question that I need to ask but may not want to read the responses - Am I screwing up by trying to do this in this manner BEFORE working to become qualified by USPSA ? I want to start this as a Saturday fun shoot where every person that wants can come give it a try...Club Owner believes it will generate new members and my goal is to not charge anything for the shoots I set up at least for a month or two and then go from there.....Also all shooters would be required to sigh a club waver related to liability responsibility. The club owner has everyone that steps onto his club read and sign this document or they are not allowed to come onto his club property.... I could go on but at this point I will pause to ask for feedback from the forum friends.....Be nice please.....Also I am 59 years old and want this to be SAFE fun shooting and as you can see I am willing to put my own money and time into this to give it every chance to be successful.... After getting to hang out at the National and World SCSA matches with B J Norris, Jessie Harrison, KC Eusabio, Max Michel, Doug Koenig, Cole Busch, Shane Coley,and other world class shooters, and these same folks allowed me to hang with their squads for mutiple days, I was hooked with this discipline. Thanks in advance for your feedback, comments, and suggestions......Mark
