  1. Yep, I've read a bunch of them. The deciding factor is almost always that 9mm brass is easy to find, and cheap.
  2. This is really good information, I've been thinking about trying it out myself. Everything I've read about caliber selection comes down to brass being easier to find for 9mm, and it being cheaper and easier to reload. Is there any reason to choose one over the other based on the way they actually perform, ignoring the added cost and difficulty associated with 38SC?
  3. I've been doing a lot of testing with N310 and Sport Pistol. Had big problems with the N310 measuring correctly in my Dillon. It kept sticking in the powder measure, then raining down on the plate, leaving me with a light load. I went through 2k rounds with it before pulling the powder measure apart in a fit of rage, cleaning it out and refilling with Sport Pistol. I'm making major at 4.7 grains, it's flake powder rather than stick and measures very accurately. It's maybe not quite as clean as N310, but it's very not bad compared to most. So it's cheaper, I use less of it, it's easier to work with and I can't tell the difference on the range. Sport Pistol is exactly what I've been looking for.
  4. Alright, so I have a theater in my home with a 120" screen. I've built a media center PC in there, and it runs SimRange LaserShot software. I happen to have the Steel Challenge software. So I'll post two cell phone pics, one is a picture of the LaserShot Steel Challenge Software of Smoke and Hope, the other is a full screen view of the picture you posted. I'll let you extrapolate your own answer from that. You will notice that they're both a little crooked, I am not a professional photographer. They also look much larger in person, but to compare one against the other, this should suffice. First the image from the LaserShot system. And now the image you created.
  5. I've been using a Mobius Action Cam. It's cheap and tiny and weighs practically nothing. I made a little bill clip for it out of some kydex and it sits on the underside of my hat bill. I flipped the image in the software, and get decent videos out of it. It almost allows you to see down the sights.
  6. I've been shooting limited for several years, and picked up Single Stack over the winter. My skills with my limited gun are so much better this spring for it, that I almost can't believe it. I got used to the heavier recoil of the 45 and learned how to find the sights again quickly. My reloads got faster because they were more frequent, and without the benefit of a giant magwell, I'm more accurate when inserting the magazine. Maye that shaves a hundredth off, I don't know, but it feels like it. The 1911 also made me more conscious of how to break apart a stage and make a solid plan. I'm a much better shooter for it, and I plan to continue shooting Single Stack Major only from about October to March every year.
  7. I really like Eggleston and Black Bullets.
  8. I have six of them for various guns. The only downside I've found is that the red kydex they use seems to be a little soft. My Single Stack holster is red on the inside, and my pistol takes shavings of it every time I draw. It's a hell of a mess after a match. No problem with any other holster, and this is really just nit picking.
  9. I've been using an open top tool bag. This one: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0788VGQMV/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1 What's neat about it is the small parts bin that zips into the bottom. I took that out, and it fits a small plano hard plastic pistol case perfectly. There are lots of little pockets for tools, granola bars, asprin etc. And the three large spaces are great for ammo boxes. There are two clipped straps that hold my hearing protection and a spent brass bag and it's just big enough around that I can put my competition belt on top of it, pick it up by the handle and carry everything in one hand. The only downside I've found is that there is no protection from rain.
  10. I've had one since July of 2017. I am constantly fighting hammer follow issues with it. Swapped out the springs and it was cured for a short time, but it's doing it again. I'm only having this problem on the 9mm R1 Limited. I also have the R1 Tactical double stack in .45 and have had zero issues with it.
