  1. I took a little off the inside ‘top wing’ that keeps your thumb off the slide because it was just touching the slide. Other than that it was a drop in. STI TG series frame I’ve had one practice session and one match with it and it definitely helps.
  2. I tell people that are interested in uspsa to shoot a couple steel challenge matches first. It gets you used to the commands and working under the clock with less concern of breaking the 180 and usually no movement. It’s a blast too anyway.
  3. I switched to a PT Evo grip over the winter and while dry fire wasn’t too bad on my hands 400 rounds of live practice every week leaves my weak hand pretty raw in the same place. My index and ring finger on my strong hand are getting pretty calloused, my girlfriend doesn’t seem to mind:)
  4. I’ve yet to buy a gauge for my 9mm but have yet to have an issue with bulged cases (I use Lee dies). I do case gauge my .40 and I put the rejects in a separate box and chamber check, ie. plunk test, the rejects with my gun while it’s dirty. If they drop in, spin and drop out they’re good to go. I see threads where guys get hung up on their Hundo’s reject rate but the real test is how the rounds fit your gun(s). For me the Hundo just identifies the ones I need to test.
  5. Someone needs to make a bacon scented gun lube. Lucas Extreme, slippery and stays put. I've been meaning to try their engine assembly lube.
  6. I never crono’ed them but a 180 blue at 4.2 WST felt pretty good. I tried 165s at 4.7 (my normal major with 180s) and they were a little snappy for my taste.
  7. I had a double stack RIA 9mm that I started with. It ran fairly well but did have some parts break. I’d have to agree with Cha-Lee though. There happens to be a decent tri topped and lightened Edge for sale in the classifieds
  8. I have high arches and Merrills killed me after about 3 hours. Speedcross 4s have been right on for me and seem to have plenty of traction in dirt and gravel.
  9. SVs are pricy but definitely GTG I have them on both my limited guns
  10. I believe Burris makes a couple models that fit various sight cuts, I assume one could be fit to an RIA. I’m not sure what the RIA cut it
  11. There are some dovetail mounts available for Vortex that fit a 1911. I have one on my 22/45 and it’s pretty slick but the slide doesn’t reciprocate so I don’t know how solid it is under heavy use
  12. I was working on increasing my speed and like you felt I was hauling ass but the video proved otherwise. It took watching some videos on instagram and seeing guys drop their support hand and even pump their strong hand some while running to see what the real speed looks like. It is intimidating to feel like you’re giving up some control of the gun but the reality is your finger is just as off the trigger and the muzzle is just as down range as if you were taking baby steps. Steve Anderson’s exercise of facing uprange and pivoting your body and drawing on a target behind you without moving your feet further illustrated to me that you can do ‘odd’ things with your gun in hand and still be safe. As stated above exits and entries are where the time is but that longest yard between them can be pushed hard with some practice
  13. Cool! i searched and saw that the DAA needed a different insert so I thought it was worth asking.
  14. Has anyone ran a PT Evo grip with a Safariland 014 holster? I’m on the fence on the PT and having to buy another holster would probably keep me running a DVC. Besides I like the 014.
  15. I run SV safeties on my limited guns, they’re pretty wide on the left side. It definitely helps lock in the web of my hand to the beaver tail and stands the gun up a little to help grab the grip on table starts.
