  1. big fan of the Gallant 135gr 9mm bullets.
  2. I cannot speak highly enough of my Hyperion, and I've also let a good amount of high level shooters shoot it at this point who feel the same way. It is about as perfect as it gets for a 9 minor limited gun. The cycling rate, return to zero, size, weight, serrations, essentially everything lend it to being the best gun on the block for limited minor and 3 gun. I've put about 1500 rounds through it in the past two weeks, its been flawless. I cant wait to develop a load for it, shot some 147 minor hand loads through it, it felt like shooting my old Nemesis with minor 40 loads, and that gun was nearly twice the weight. I would go back and buy it again in a heart beat... I'd just order it as soon as it was released instead of waiting a few weeks.
  3. I like the balance and feel of the cole components stock... but ive had the buffer tube come loose (properly torqued), and unless I red Loctite the surface area of the clamp onto the buffer tube, it will slowly slide in throughout a match. I solved that with the Loctite, but that's not ideal. I ordered an XLR, it looks to solve both those issues for me, while maintaining a similar design and look... plus it just feels a little better.
  4. This is all an "It depends" or personal preference answer. For my limited set up (dot), I had a much higher riser than most, so a 50/200 was anything but. I still zero'd at 50, and just new my dopes out to 500 with whatever round I was using. For my tacops setup now, I zero it for 77gr at 200, because it makes sense for my BDC. I then confirm 55gr ammo off that zero so I know if it is hitting true to zero, but my BDC will then be different. Get a ballistic app, (I use strelok pro), figure out what FPS your ammo is running at (buy or borrow a chrono) that you will be shooting and play with your zero numbers in the app until you find something that works for you and your equipment. Zero it at that then confirm it and see if you like it.

    Update; Starting tasks and trainers to help with mental management. Memory exercises etc. Talladega Noveske was my first real match this year... bombed one stage dropping me down to 34th. It was good to see what it was like, pretty excited for VIR this weekend. Shot 2-Gun at Safariland. Training has been paying off; last year I shot a 71%.. This year 89.6%... 0.4% away from a UML Pro qualification. I eneded up rushing some pistol killing time missing steel.. but my biggest hurdle was stage plan execution.. passing up and FTE'ing some steel. that one mistake took me from a solid 3rd and let Rob Leatham ahead of me. I'm still happy with my performance... especially against the talent pool that was competing this year. VIR is next for me this weekend. UML Multigun championship in May as well as the USSL Grand Championship at the same time. Things I am working on until then; Attack targets and precision targets for all 3 guns, movement, gun transitions, and most of all MENTAL MANAGEMENT!
  6. UTM and SIM rounds.. 3v3 or 5v5... now THAT would be a fun new sport, and it would still be just a game, albeit with the greatest level of tacticoolness. UTM rounds definitely make you NOT want to get hit lol.
  7. not offbase at all, I was thinking similar times; 1.5 draw and first shot +.25, 1.5 +.25, 1.5+.25 = 5.25 sec is what I would strive for at 7 yards and a duty gun with level 2 holster. add .1 for level 3 retention. This is a reasonable 1.5 draw to A zone shot, reasonable reload time for an open top mag pouch with transition included, and reasonable splits. Not saying this is where everyone should be, just what I personally would strive to do cold. Might go out and try this actually, not a bad drill at all. Add some movement and windows and it would be a perfect port to port reload drill.
  8. I would prioritize setting up the ELS Belt you ordered. I can use my single belt for every discipline I want to shoot now, its awesome. There are a bunch of great caddies out there now; taccom, invictus, safariland, DAA, etc... I have used (older) taccom, invictus, and safariland and prefer the safailand caddies for my birdshot, and the invictus if I need to load any slugs. This is because the safariland are adjusted for length of shells and I have found that slugs are normally just a little longer than birdshot. The safariland caddies definitely hold shells the most secure of any caddie ive tried yet, but only as long as they are adjusted properly. This is not a concern for the invictus or taccom caddies, so I have 2 quadload invictus caddie on a els forks if I need those extra slugs on a stage. If you have kydex stuff already, modify them for els forks if they don't fit and run it. The beauty of 3 gun is, gear only matters so much, and modifying existing gear is about as functional as dedicated platforms for most things. Administrative keys for success before your first match; Know where your slugs hit. Know your dope so you get 1st shot hits on distance targets. Have a gameplan that is efficient for you for gun transitions, this can save up to 2 seconds per gun per stage.
  9. It was 10 stages. took ~45 min for a squad of 12 to shoot a stage. Resetting was much smoother than I thought it would be since all hits had to be scored. It was pretty efficient once you got in sync with the tablet holder. I am excited to shoot it again at VIR. It was worth the travel for me to Talladega.
  10. Ill upload some stuff to YT later if youd like. I have some stuff on my IG @dk3gun if you want to check out some of the stages. It was a very fun match. USPSA with rifles basically. 40-50 was the longest target. If you had good footwork and positional ability, you would do very good on the stages. One stage killed my overall, as its USPSA hit factor scoring. VIR should have some distance I think, so I'm excited for that!

    Ah I just forgot about this thread for a while, my last match was Surefire in Oct 18. Surgery the beginning of Nov, physical therapy since, but I'm free of limitations now! Pretty stoked to be able to push myself again.. Been shooting and dry firing since the beginning of January. I'm excited for this upcoming season, first one without dealing with an injury.

    Need to get back on this.. goals have changed, much more specific now, dropping everything not related to multigun. 2018 accomplishments; 9th at Safariland Expedition Day Match - 2 Gun - got my UML Classification of Expert 1st at Safariland Expedition Night Match - 2 Gun 4th at UML 2 Gun National Championship 5th at Surefire Multigun World Championship - Limited - UML Classification of Semi-Pro 2019 Planned Matches and Goals; Talladega Noveske Series; Shoot the best I can and have fun, this is a new match and format for me. Safariland Expedition Day; Shooting 2 gun again since my shotgun will be having work done to it - Looking for a 90%+ and grab the last classification of Pro Safailand Expedition Night; Win again! Back to back years would be sweet. VIR Noveske Series; TBD Based on Talladega, mostly improve weak points I find and shoot a better match. After April is TBD based on my career and where I'll be living next 2019 Goals; Clean up my stage planning and execution Continue improving on all aspects of shooting, predominantly pistol and shotgun Increase my physical ability, agility, and stamina now that I am finally past the rigors of surgery recovery and don't have to compete injured. Set standards based on top 10% of shooters times, then work to meet an maintain those standards consistently in; gun transition speeds (2 sec), shotgun loading speeds (4 sec), fluidity of movement (TBD), shot entry and exit speed (TBD). Shoot at the best of my ability and see where I stack up in Tac-Ops, its a much bigger and better pool than limited or 2 gun. I will be coming up with a set of movement and agility drills I can track my progress on.
  13. I didn't shoot it last year, what was the farthest target on the coarse in Talladega. Poppers/Plateracks etc
  14. I've never heard of any custom builder/manufacturer that has a 100% perfect record. The difference between manufacturers is how quickly, effectively, and easily a problem is handled. I know my last Atlas gun was inspected, and test fired. Cant wait for my next one to be finished.
  15. A full two days of my favorite part of a bay stage? Couldn't agree more!
