  1. I have gone through 8 FF3 and 3 Venoms so far on my Stock 2. The longest lasing is one Venom for around 10k rounds, though the next Venom only went through 3500 rounds before it broke. The shortest was a FF3 for 200 rounds. They all have great customer service, e.g. they send you a brand new one on the same day they receive the broken one. I do believe all metal guns are harder on the dots. I have friends who run Venoms on Glocks and X5, and they have not broken any yet, although they do shoot less than I do.
  2. Corrected. Thanks for pointing out.
  3. Prod CO Area 1 66 87 Area 2 40 39 Area 3 76 62 Area 4 87 71 Area 5 87 44 Area 6 64 61 Area 7 75 55 Area 8 117 81 Added more area match data. Looks like Area 1 is the only area match where CO outnumbered Prod. Area 2, 3, 4, 6 and 7 are very close in numbers. Area 5 and 8 have Prod outnumber CO by a big margin. Time will tell. Will be interesting to look at 2020 data. CO is pretty much poor man's open right now: Bigger mag capacity Easier to hit stuff Easier to plan stages Minor ammo Higher combined overall ranking I personally think if we bring both divisions to 15-round cap, they will be pretty well balanced. This is an area I believe IPSC did right.
  4. A quick look at Practiscore of this year's area matches (the ones I can find): Area 4: Prod - 87 CO - 71 Area 1: Prod - 66 CO - 87 Area 6: Prod - 64 CO - 61 Area 7: Prod - 75 CO - 55
  5. Shouldn't heavier recoil spring cause more nose dip, while lighter recoil springs lead to more nose jump, provided the same PF?
  6. I found this, and looks like another option. I have slides cut for Venom, and not sure if this works... Anyone has tried it? https://www.tombstonetactical.com/catalog/trijicon/rm37-rmr-adapter-plate-for-doctor-mount/

    Squib Problems

    I set off primer only in the gun and they were not loud at all. I used hammer and nail on the defect primers after pulling the bullets out and dumping the powder, because I did not expect they will do anything. This is after I have tried them on factory glocks and mp9s. No gun were able to pop them. So I used hammer and nail. I guess if they indeed go off they may be loud but none of them did. I think the primer QC is an issue for a lot of brands. I know S&B have dimension issues because when I loaded SB exclusively with Pal Filler (an CNCed Italian made vibra prime), a lot of them would not go through the hole - they are made too big. WSP used to be very consistent and no problem, but for the past year I am getting bad batches with these dead primers. Remington is worse than WSP in terms of QC - in both dimension consistency and misfire rate. The only one I can trust right now is Federal/CCI. CCI in particular is hard enough to be safely loaded on 650 per Dillon, and 100% reliable in my guns.
  8. Does anyone have milled slide to install Trijicon RMR or SRO? I was told the screw spacing on the RMR footprint is too wide for the Stock 2 slide. Does that leave the adapter plate as the only option? I am curious to see anyone running RMR or SRO on their Stock 2s.

    Squib Problems

    Bad primers. I have loaded close to 60,000 WSP, but the most recent 10K were giving me so many headaches. There were at least 10 in the past 10K just dead primers. I hit them with hammer and nail and they won't do anything! I have switched to CCI with 0 problems for about 6 months so frar, but you never know when you will get a bad batch. I trusted WSP for a long time and now I will never buy WSP again.
  10. I sent emails to ask both EAA and IFG if they are importing this model. That's a month ago. No response so far. Safer bet probably is just buy a stock 2 and mill the slide.
  11. I personally think 15 rounds help production attract more shooters, mitigating some of the cannibalization done by CO. Now appears to be the right time to bring this up because of these "small parts" rulings that don't really help attract shooters but push production more towards limited. Check "Match Breakdowns" of this year's area matches on Practiscore. CO has reached or surpassed production in popularity in a quite a few of them. This was not the case when CO allowed only 10 rounds. Bigger mag capacity does seem to draw more shooters, all else being equal. I cannot count how many hard-core production shooters just wanted to "try" once or a bit of CO but then never come back. Maybe 15-round is not the answer. Maybe going all the way back to "factory" is, but even then, most full-size factory guns have 15 or 17 round mags. I'd love to see true "factory gun" division instead of some half-blood.
  12. I don't think the water is the reason they canceled the match. They worked really hard whole day yesterday to clean out the water/mud, but I believe it was later in the day a small tornado that stopped by the range blowing away equipments and carports, etc. that was the last straw.
  13. Of course, I would if the new time works. Unfortunately, for me personally, my weekends are 100% full (not just shooting schedule) until 2020 Area 4 Championship. Not specifically for Area 4, I wonder in general for major matches encountering inclement weather/natural conditions that are out of control of the organizers, would it make sense to ask for shooters help to put the stages back together or clean up the range, just to keep the original schedule? I am curious if someone put out a vote say, keep the original shooting schedule but you need to arrive 2 hours earlier to help with cleanup/setup, or cancel your flights/hotels/vacations and go back home, what the percentages would look like. I personally might be willing to arrive 2 hours early and help out, but again if there are situations that cannot be helped, I fully understand the match needs to be canceled.
  14. It's always easier to "give" then "take" something away once the member base have it. That's why realistically going for 15 round is one way to make the legal "small parts" stink less.
