  1. There, their, they're. Three different meanings.
  2. And a low recoil, no dot bounce PCC. Seems to be a never ending struggle to get the perfect combination of buffer, springs,quarters,weights,bolts, barrels, bullets,powders, and who knows what all else. For me, I'd just be happy to not have major brain farts during a stage. Just an observation--carry on!
  3. I guess you're talking about unloaded. But unless it's some type of gun that the hammer obscures vision of the sights, why would you even need to pull the hammer back just to get a sight picture? And for that matter, I read this a long time ago and thought it was funny and somewhat true, "Has it been so long since you looked at your sights that you forgot what they looked like?"
  4. The TF ones worked fine with my Colt mags. Sorry you have had bad luck.
  5. Thanks for the report. I know you waited a long time to get both guns. I was deciding what to buy at the time you ordered them. I've had my JP for a few months now and am really happy with it. I did put a Smoke Composites CF handguard on mine and it helped the overall balance for me, less front heavy. Happy shooting for you!
  6. At least there's no fishing vests. I do have a shooting shirt with our local facegroup groups name on it "Gun Dudes" But it is kinda funny how most sports seem to evolve into similar fashions.
  7. OK, just wondering why. But remember, things that make a difference to top level shooters usually don't mean that much to average guys like me. That 1/100th of a sec. doesn't mean much when we waste 5 seconds cause we move slow or forget our plan half way through.
  8. I'm not sure I understand. Have you shot it as is from JP and don't like it? Is it not performing as well as your MPX? It sounds like you are changing it just because you think it can be better. But maybe I'm wrong, just asking.
  9. I now use WSF with a 124 bullet. I did use 231/hp38 but changed. No real definite reason why though. Someone somewhere said something about slower powders being better. I never used TG because I didn't like its low margin for error in loading.
  10. Somebody on the B&S forum here has an ultralight barrel for sale. You might pm him for the specs. I saw it last night. FWIW, I have the smoke handguard on my JP and I really like it. I have the pcc version. It is a little smaller than the AR version.
  11. When I started shooting about 4 years ago with a pistol I tried 115,124, and 147. I was so new I couldn't tell any difference so I just went with middle of the road 124. Plus, I read that 124 was the original 9mm round. Since then I'm just too lazy to reset my reloader to try anything different. But also, for most all of us, I believe the bullet weight is the least of our handicaps. There's a lot of other low hanging fruit to improve our shooting to worry about first.
  12. Yeah, it is subjective for what is coaching. In this case I wonder, could you have added 'iiiiffff" ready to your beginning commands? Maybe he would have picked up on it. I'm just one who leans toward the lenient side.
  13. I know you have to draw the line somewhere, but I also believe an atmosphere of good sportsmanship should be promoted. To me telling the guy he forgot his mags is just good sportsmanship. I understand the subjective nature of trying to draw that line, but, just saying.....
  14. I'm using a 124 bullet at about 135 pf. I have the 5 steel ss scs in my gmr-15 and it works great.
  15. What power factor ammo are you using? This is really a guess on my part, and I'm no expert either, but if your ammo is hot could it be slamming the bolt back too hard and catching the bolt hold open? With hot ammo maybe going to 5 tungsten would help. My 2 cents. eta-or maybe a stronger spring?
