  1. Thanks for the tips. In addition to the Jack Black’s Industrial Hans Healer, I also picked up some Joshua Tree and Working Hands to try. I like the Working Hands during the day, because it’s not greasy feeling. The Joshua Tree salve is nice at night before bed since it’s a little greasier and takes a while to absorb. The athletic tape has helped, and my grips are starting to wear in with some dead skin, so all is going well. Thanks to all who have made suggestions. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Sorry man, wasn’t trying to start an argument. I was just trying to be analytical about the ingredients. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Hmm, I’ll have to go to a store and see what they have. The “Udder Balm” I see on Amazon also appears to contain alcohols. The “Bag Balm” does not, but it also appears to be mostly vaseline with a couple extras. Thank you. ETA: There are some interesting articles on alcohol in skin care products. Bottom line is that not all of them are bad (fatty alcohols are actually good for the skin). https://www.paulaschoice-eu.com/alcohol-in-skincare-the-facts I also found this product analyzer (just copy/paste the ingredients). The O’Keefes doesn’t seem all that bad. [emoji2369] https://www.skincarisma.com/ingredient-analyzer Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Is the stuff you use the O’Keeffe’s Working Hands in the green container? If so, it’s certainly the most reasonably priced of the stuff I’ve seen so far. I started using Pro Grip recently as well... amazing how much a little of that stuff helps! With that and the grip tape, it’s like the pistol is velcro’d to my hands! Thanks!

  5. I will check out Joshua Tree. Thanks for the recommendation. I got some “Jack Black Industrial Hand Healer” that I like, but I’ll look into rock climber stuff. Good tip! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Copy that. Thanks!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. LOL. No problem. I sit behind a computer most of the day now, and evidently I’ve gone delicate. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. I added some grip tape to my Glock a couple weeks ago to get a more positive purchase with my support hand. The OE grips were too slippery, and the grip tape I installed (from Ben Stoeger Pro Shop) is somewhere between 40 and 60 grit. It's pretty aggressive, which works well, but it's beginning to tear the $#!+ out of the meaty part of my support palm at the base of the thumb. I've been doing daily dryfire for the last couple weeks, and the skin on my support hand is pink and tender. It hasn't rubbed all the way through yet, but I don't think I'm too far off from that point. I'd prefer to not make the grip less aggressive, and I would like to continue my dryfire routine. I'm wondering what the best way is to facilitate speedy development of a callus. Should I keep the tender area moisturized? Let it dry out? Give it a break and cover it with athletic tape, or keep pushing until it rubs through? Tips/tricks welcomed. Thanks!
  9. FWIW, I picked up one of these in anticipation of receiving my G34.5 won at my local GSSF match. https://shieldarms.com/glock-gen-5-small-frame-tin-skeletonized-striker I’ve not tried it yet, but it’s the lowest cost extended tip striker I found and it carries a lifetime warranty against breakage. Seems to be of decent build quality. I’ll be trying it in a range-only gun.
  10. None of the links to the Rudy Project vendor tent seem to work for me anymore. Has this relationship been dissolved? If so, does anyone happen to have a VIP code for greater than 35% off they can PM me? Thanks!!
  11. SA went through the first 12 on his Wednesday, 02/06/19 podcast (That Shooting Show) this week and covered how to shoot them while moving.
  12. Do you have a link to a BE summary of the “proper” way to shoot from a bench? EDIT: Found some good instructions here toward the bottom of the page: https://brianenos.com/pages/words Also, this BE post was super helpful:
  13. Can anyone confirm whether or not the G34 version of this holster is compatible with GEN 5 models? The website doesn’t specify, and when I contacted BT directly, they said there is a 1mm difference in frame width between Gen 4/5 models and that it “should” work but might be too loose. Their answer was not confidence inspiring, so looking for some real world users. Thanks in advance!!
  14. Hey all! Been lurking for a while, but figured it was time to sign up. I’m fairly new to pistol sports and still working on fundamentals. I shot 2 local USPSA matches and a GSSF match (and won the new member pistol! ) in 2018 and looking to do more next year. I’ve been a little too aggressive resulting in lots of “Mike’s” and penalties. My hit factors on my first two qualifiers were in the D class, so I’ll be spending the winter practicing. I recently read through Brian’s book and have a couple of Ben Stoeger’s books on order to hopefully push me in the right direction before I form too many bad habits. Anyways, glad to be here and looking forward to being a more active participant in the future. Cheers! Mikey
