    I’ve not run Tangfos, but other DA/SA guns do this when the trigger return spring is bad. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. No problem. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Google “USPSA production list”. I believe there is an addendum that states factory threaded barrel versions are legal. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. At the danger of drifting the thread, do the Glock “dryfire mags serve any purpose or do reloads eliminate their usefulness? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I do currently reload. But upgrading to a Dillon and possibly a Mark 7 should save me time, which is a commodity for me. I wouldn’t mind buying large lots of components at some point. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Maintaining hydration and blood sugar

    I would consume what you consume on a regular day. If you pump caffeine most days and don’t on match day, you’re going to have a bad time. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Good info, thank you. The money I was going to slowly devote to a CZ I just may spend on a Dillon and reloading components/gear and perhaps a class with a GM. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. I will give that a listen. I’ll probably save up for a rig for the HK, and start putting reps on my Glock for now. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Roger that! I plan to order Ben’s book and Steve Anderson’s very soon and get started. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. I’m no Ben Stoeger and will never be, my level of participation cannot be that high. My intentions are devoting 30 minutes 3x a week and one live fire session a week. I think I can budget 1,000 rounds per month if I reload. That’ll be about $120 in ammunition (and about two hours of reloading), $75 in fuel to and from the range. So it’s safe to say, advantages to I’ve design over the others are greatly overblown? My journey has been 1911>Sig P226 (which I never mastered>Glock and VP9, with the latter seeming more accurate and faster for me (I can’t reach Glock mag releases without breaking my grip, but am successful using the paddle with my trigger finger). The Glock I can work on easier should something go wrong and I have a belt and mag carriers. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Please enlighten a beginner. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Seems that the big metal guns may not be the competitive edge some tout? I’ll admit, the VP9L that may be coming somewhat excites me. I love my regular VP9, and wouldn’t mind a bit more sight radius. I have mags for it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. I’ve casually shot a few USPSA matches but I’ve never been serious about training or dry fire. I’m planning to start getting more serious. In the past I’ve used my G34. I’ve got a descent belt and all that for it. I’ll be honest, I don’t love the gun and don’t shoot it as well as my VP9. Lately, I’ve been lusting after a CZ but it’s not in the budget immediately. I’ve been advised to run what I have, so that means the G34 and the rig I have. Everybody I know that is competitive in this sport suggest not to waste time with polymer, striker-fired guns...they all say go metal framed DA/SA. Is there a place for the polymer guns anymore? Should a guy hold off putting in the reps on a gun that he may ultimately ditch, or are the skills and timing transferable enough to not create a problem later? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Personally, I would start learning the DA/SA first. Even after you get your dot, keep running the irons gun for competent until you have the hang of the dot. The dot has a steep learning curve. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Do you like the new Production rules?

    The hottest .40 load is 580 (and cannot he used in many pistols per ammo manufacturer recommendations) with the hottest load recommended in standard .40 pressures is actually 480 FPE. The hottest non-hard cast defensive .45 is 540 FPE. See what a silly game this is? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
