    entery level bolt gun

    I would go #1 or #2 but honestly if you have chance I would go put your hands on them. It can say a lot to feel them out and test the triggers.

    Rock Island.

    The Taylor Freelance fattie works great. You will need base pads on your factory magazines though. If you don’t currently have a magwell I’m guessing you have flat base magazines. I have a Dawson magwell here I may try it on my RIA. I never thought to see how close it fit. I’ll get back to you.

    Mags won't drop

    I vote feed lips as well. If you have a mag that drops free and one that doesn’t, see if you can use a micrometer to see a difference.

    1911 *must have* Upgrades for USPSA

    How does the gun shoot now? What is it? I would take it and just shoot a few matches and you will know. Sights are great, trigger is helpful, magwell is nice, but practice is huge. Be prepared for 8 round magazines on 28-40 round stages if it’s a 45. Single stack is my favorite class but it can be a pain sometimes. Lots of mags and belt space.

    Quad loading question

    I ran into this exact problem today. Really set me back while I though about my next move. Glad to see the suggestions. Now to incorporate it into my practice.
  6. Use what you have. It will work fine. As you progress you may change your mind but that gun will be good for a learning and figuring out what you like. If you have a good optic and practice regularly you will do fine. Upgrade later if it holds you back.

    Lee Pro 1000

    I’m with you. I started on a loadmaster and a 1000. Traded a gun for a 550. Shortly there after got rid of my Lee equipment and bought another 550 and a SDB. Just sold my SDB and bought a 650. Dillon all the way for me now. After using my buddies hornady loadmaster the other day I reconfirmed my love for dillon.

    Which is your favorite CZ and why?

    Love my accushadow. My scorpion is a close second though.
  9. I also run these. I am very happy. Quick shipping, work great, and well priced. Regarding ammo, I haven’t found anything it doesn’t like. I reload almost everything, but everything my other guns don’t like, my CZ doesn’t seem to care. It even ate my funky hollow points that were loaded all the way to mag length.
  10. What setup and gun are you using? Just a hint from when I started a couple years ago...don’t go down the rabbit hole of trying to buy a bunch of good equipment right away. Shoot a few matches and talk to other shooters. Try out there gear and see what you like. Welcome to a very addicting hobby.

    3.2 TG with rainier 147gr TRN or HP bullets. Makes minimum PF every time and shoots reliably in all of 12 of my 9mm Guns.

    Barrel Length Question

    How accurate are you? I would say your abilities may determine your answer. Shorter barrel could mean more recoil and shorter sight distance but if you can perform with that, especially with a comp, then why not. I use a 6in barrel in my limited gun but a 4.5 on my production gun. I shoot both well but longer barrels is easier for me to place accurate shots with.

    Which pistol for first USPSA Match?

    IMO I would use what you feel most comfortable with. If you already have mags and a holster than that would drive my decision towards that gun. I personally would lean towards the Eagle but if you shoot the Glock more and have the equipment go that route. If it’s just for fun then use what you have. You will learn so much more showing up with what is comfortable and watching as you go.

    Unload and show clear dq

    +1 I've definitely made that mistake before. No more half full in my pouches.

    Need a new sand bag

    I just bought a set of 3 today from phantom precision tactical. I looked at wiebad but these are cheaper and he is local to me and current military. I have been using his bags for about a year now by borrowing my buddies but figured I should own my own. I like the barricade bag he has a lot and also bought his version of the game changer.
