  1. I've used numerous types of body armor between the military and current police swat team. My favorites so far are First Spear products or Velocity Systems/Mayflower. Not to say there aren't other good ones. For plates, level 3 ceramic with a special threat rating for M855 is the standard on my team. Level 4 has more protection of course, but the added bulk and weight (and cost) wasn't worth it. Stay away from steel unless you just want to play around on the range for a short time. Mags, medical, comms, any other tools you absolutely need is what you should focus on. If you add everything you might ever need you'll get way too heavy. Ounces equal pounds, pounds equals pain.

    P320 RX

    Yes, that is fine.
  3. Duty P320 X-Pro (like an X5), compete with an X-5, off duty X-compact or P365 if I have to go small. All have dots except the P365.
  4. Wouldn't this be a "slide racker" and not legal for CO in USPSA?
  5. The Dr. can add more than I can I'm sure, but this is old training. It's the same thing they told me in my early days in the Marines. However, it's now the opposite. My last few years in the Corps as well as my current TCCC training in SWAT pretty much dictates a severe bleed in a limb equals a tourniquet every time. Better to play it safe. A tourniquet does not mean you're going to get the limb cut off. Because of this, patrol officers are commonly seen with tourniquets on their duty belts these days.
  6. I shot a practice session of about 500 rounds and only began to notice the gunk on the lens after about 250-300 rounds. I also shot one 6 stage match with it and wiped off the lens after ever stage since it's not hard to do. I'm sure I could have shot the entire match without wiping the lens as the gunk was only noticeable if i was purposely looking at it instead of being target focused. Since it's easy to wipe the lens off, I would say the shield is mandatory, but it does defiantly help. The shield is burnt and black looking (even after I cleaned it with solvent) from only the 100 rounds I tested. It is definitely take the brunt of the blast and I had very little if anything on the lens, so I'd say it does it's job well.
  7. I put the tevo blast shield on my atlas mount last night and shot 100 rounds to test it. Glass was very clean (as clean as any other dot/mount/blast shield combo). I didn't notice any negative effects to having it on there either. I can add a picture later if you want.
  8. The atlas mounts just came back in stock. The picture you were looking is for the DPP and other dots. They don't show a picture of the 510C mount. I ordered a couple of tevo blast shields to try as well.
  9. I can't find one either.
  10. Hmmm... I wonder if the Atlas puts the sight further forward than the Tevo. Seems that would cause my problem and fix yours.
  11. I recently put one on my Chaos using the mount from Atlas. No ejection issues at all. Sight itself is pretty awesome. The only draw back is it gets blasted pretty good by the holes in my barrel. Have to make sure I wipe the lens off after every stage. I'm thinking about adding the Tevo blast shield to it. I assume it would work with the atlas mount.
  12. Yes, Atlas makes one. I have one and it's great. Waiting for them to come back in stock to switch my other atlas gun over as well.
  13. Awesome, I'll give that a try. Thanks!
  14. I have several MBX and about half of them seem to have issues when I get down to only four rounds in the magazine. Not sure what dimension is off, but it runs great until there's four left and all the spring tension seems to go away. After knocking the round out, the last 3 feed fine again. I assume it has something to do withe the area where the double stack goes to single or maybe something is catching the follower at that point, but I can't seem to get it right yet. My STI gen 2 and atlas videos have been the ticket for me.
