Sees Sights Lift

Sees Sights Lift (7/11)

  1. We’re the plate guards designated as hard or soft cover?
  2. Yeah, I know. There are some that like the idea and some that don’t. I don’t really care either way. Just kinda tossing it out there for conversation fodder. pros and cons of minimum trigger pull weight? we already have power factor measurement that can vary according to weather/equipment/operator. If you play too close to the razors edge minimum, you stand a chance of not having success. Same could be said for trigger pull weight. Thoughts?
  3. An eas(ier) way to enforce the spring issue is by having a minimum trigger pull weight. who cares if recoil or firing pin springs are changed. Tune the gun to the bullet load fine, just don’t fiddle with trigger pull weight. I don’t know if I’d shoot it but maybe.
  4. All really good points. And yep, most times, brand doesn’t matter. Edited my post to reflect.
  5. As posted below, brands don’t really matter but here is what I’ve had success with: Red Hill Tactical Holster With Springer precision or similar Hanger (holster mount) Double Alpha competition belt (follow instructions on measurement for size) CR speed mag pouches For production You can get the brass magazine base pads if you want a little extra weight to help them fall but CZs don’t really need them. For CO, I like the Tarn Tactical ease of disassembly for cleaning mags. For Carry optics you’ll need an optic. Don’t know if your S2 Orange has the cut with plate system or not. If not, I would research and figure out which optic you want and get the slide milled for that optic. I’d look hard at the Trijion SRO as that seems to be the most sturdy option at this time. Hope that helps.
  6. They used Steel Target Paint at Classic Nationals.
  7. So I think the issue with calibration is that the popper may have moved a little from the first bullet but not enough to fall. The second (calibration) bullet may be enough to continue the knock down but might not have been enough if the popper was in its original unfired-upon position. But: at area 6, I saw a competitor win a popper calibration. First time for that. What about this?: the hit was clearly full diameter in or above the proper area of the popper and it didn’t fall. Then, the popper must be manually knocked over by fist/etc and set back up before the calibration shot is fired. Or we could just get rid of big poppers.
  8. I wouldn’t call that chamber checking. Those definitions do use the term ‘firearm’ I think most here would agree that a barrel or upper separated from the receiver is not a firearm.
  9. Not one bit. I would treat both the same. neither a barrel by itself or an upper (with or without BCG) is considered a firearm. Just a part of one. however, I would personally be more aware of where I was pointing the AR upper. I wouldn’t go ‘aiming’ the pistol barrel at anyone either. so, a bit of a tangent: I was thinking, what if this was a revolver without an easily removable cylinder or a fixed barrel firearm like a beretta? Can’t handle live or dummy ammo in safe area. Soooo if that was the case I would ask if an RO/or other official was available to Supervise at a vacant bay or see if the chrono folks weren’t too busy. They can issue the make ready to start the process. I could take the slide off, chamber check, reassemble And they could issue proper commands back to the bag or holster. Simple, safe, legal per rules.
  10. I wouldn’t think that is a problem. I don’t remember seeing anything like that in the rule book. Was it a handgun or rifle? i ask this because you mention ‘muzzling everyone’. Not at all an issue with a handgun in my opinion but I could see where the perception could change if it were a rifle barrel. I don’t think it’s less safe, just the difference in perception of those having a rifle barrel pointed at them. now if it were a rifle or PCC upper, even without the BCG, again perception could be even worse. just thinking out loud here and would like more specifics.
  11. I didn’t see where it said in 10.2.8 that you couldn’t rest against the inside of a port with only the hand specified if the port is part of a wall that is part of the shooting area. Is that what you meant by “can’t touch anything either”?
  12. Ok. Picked up some 4227. Gonna Researchthat powder as it seems to work for both sub (208g amax) and super 180 BTST
