  1. Has this ever been done before in same season?
  2. Can you confirm shooting starts at 8 tomorrow for USPSA. Practiscore and website says 8 but I never know if thats shots fired or registration.
  3. Thanks! Looks like I can shoot Thursday steel and Nov 2nd USPSA at Phoenix Rod and Gun. If I planned this better and it wasn’t a short notice trip I would have signed up for Area 2.
  4. I will be working near the Phoenix airport Sky Harbor from Oct 31st to Nov 13. Any local USPSA or Steel matches in the area. I am flexible but prefer to stay within 45 minutes of the airport. I’ll bringing all my stuff to dry fire but wouldn’t mind checking out a local event. Thanks!

  6. Makes sense. I have not dabbled in those loads as I have used PF as my minimum requirement. Now that you mention it, I think I will try some test loads too see how it feels.
  7. Thanks for bringing this up. I am also looking for suggestions.
  8. Felt recoil may be less using heavier grain bullets such as 147s. It’s generally perceived as less snappy and softer feeling For minimum PF I use 3.2 titegroup with 147s. That’s about 130PF. You may be be able to go down to about 2.9 for even lighter loads that should still cycle most slides.
  9. Keep up the good work and keep practicing. It will pay off. I think I know what club your talking about. If you have time, we shoot USPSA at Paul Bunyan Club every 2nd Sunday. Shouldn’t be too much further depending where your located. Let me know if you need more info on local clubs and matches.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
