  1. It doesn't get uploaded to SCSA as it would no longer be a sanctioned Steel Challenge event.
  2. Competition gun Walther Q5 poly Carry gun Walther PPQ 4" Used to shoot and carry Glock but I discovered that Walthers work better for me.
  3. Well stated. Buh Bye. I haven't had the pleasure of a .45 slug but a piece of frag from another squad embedded in my cheek. Wound was superficial but inspection of my eye pro showed where it caught the frag before it stuck in my skin below the lens. My son also got a frag cut under his eye. Absolutely ridiculous to even consider not wearing eye protection.
  4. Running stock RSA, tried the Walther tungsten RSA and liked the poly one better. First Q5 poly has approximately 15k through it with ZERO issues, second Q5 poly has about 1,500 rounds through it with also ZERO issues. Both are set up for Carry Optics. My load is 135 pf Accura 124 grain plated over Sport Pistol powder. I like the feel of a slightly higher pf and it shoots extremely well. This load runs in all of my competition guns and has yet to cause any problem. I also use range pickup brass and only cull steel, aluminum, or 2-piece cases. Q5 polymer Accura plated 124 gr 135 power factor (verified on multiple chrono's) No issues whatsoever Factory RSA There are also 2 PPQ 4" guns that I shoot regularly with the same load. I have not chrono'd through these guns yet but ZERO problems and all my PPQ's are factory spec.
  5. This might sound pedantic, but push ups, ab and core exercises, and hand grip exercisers will pay HUGE dividends. I'm just barely a 'B' class shooter and have only been shooting USPSA for 15 months now, but with doing these types of exercises every day, I'm running the trigger faster than I ever thought possible with a polymer gun as well as keeping the gun on target for follow up shots.
  6. The threads pulled out of the plate and my dot few up in the air about 12 feet. Fun shooting the rest of the match with no sights LOL. The CMore plate is made of a different, softer material than the ones supplied by Walther and the threads are not as durable. It lasted somewhere between 7-800 rounds before failure. The Walther plate for DPP has over 2k rounds through the gun with no problems. CMore replaced the plate with no hassle. It's sitting on the table next to the computer. I haven't had any problems with the current setup so not really inclined to switch back.
  7. You can use the DPP plate, I don't remember which number it is, and file down the index nubs so the adapter that comes with the Razor will mount flush. I got the CMore plate to mount my Razor red dot and had an issue with it. Went to the Leupold DPP plate with Razor adapter and it's been perfect.
  8. I had a bunch of things start clicking into place when I started designing stages with much help from a lot of helpful mentors in my club. Build a stage on paper, check if it's all legal, try to visualize it from ground level, adjust accordingly. Once I had a legal stage on paper, I put it on the ground on match day. A few adjustments were needed but it was a fun stage. I now make it a point to design and build a stage every match I shoot when possible. What this did for me is take my visualization and stage planning to a different level. I started seeing different ways to engage target arrays to help with entry and exit along with specific order to the different target arrays. Foot placement, reloads, speed of execution, calling my shots, overall stage planning are all on the upswing now.
  9. All of my dry fire practice has 10-20 minutes of draw practice. Focus on exact spot on target, draw from holster and align sights on gun with my line of sight at the exact spot on the target I'm focusing on. As sights align with my eye, focus shifts to front sight. Took a while to get consistent at it, Steel Challenge helped a LOT. Then switched to CO and had to start all over. Running the dot out of the holster is getting better but not quite as good as with irons. The only time I look at my gun after MR is when it is not in my holster, i.e. table start.
  10. I have seen Jim do this several times. First time I was pretty amazed. Couple matches ago, my dot came off my Q5 and Jim was RO ing me. I looked over and said he could DNF me. But he's like, "NO, YOU GOT THIS!" Got the index figured out in a couple of shots and got it done. He made it a point to RO me on the remaining stages that day. I learned a LOT and have since added 'dot off' to my practice routine. My stage times weren't great, but I finished the match and did better than I thought I would.
  11. Nicely stated Fatso. I also am here to play, too old to realistically expect national level performance, and I like to shoot lots of different guns. I am learning that middle age eyes really like a dot on the gun (Q5) but I really like shooting my PM9 and my old Glock 35 never lets me down. I wish I had time and energy for a better practice regimen but it is what it is and I'm still having FUN.
