Finally read the FAQs

Finally read the FAQs (3/11)

  1. Is that general shooting experience or competition shooting experience?
  2. What attachment mechanism do you use for your BOSS hangar? The included aluminum plate? Does anyone run Tek-Lok on it? I like the idea of running Tek-Lok so I can switch between different belts (double belt for USPSA, regular belt for defensive shooting courses) more easily. Am I overthinking? I already have the Tek-Lok bracket off the BladeTech holster I'm using on it, so there's no cost difference to me.
  3. So, I recently realized I'm not the only shooter who has CZ 75 magazines. Or an UpLULA. Or Howard Leight Impact Sport muffs. In order to keep mine mine and avoid confusion on the range, I'd like to mark them. For the non-magazine items, I figure a label maker will work wonderfully. For the magazines, I'm thinking of a paint-based marker so I can write on the side and not risk it catching during reloads. I'm sure I'm not the first to think of all this -- what do you do?
  4. I'm a heavier shooter, just getting into USPSA, trying to figure out which belt I should get. For classes and so forth I've been wearing one of my regular belts, but wondering if I should upgrade to a 2-piece setup. I'll be shooting production with a CZ 75 SP-01 in a Blade-tech Holster. I see Blade-tech has a double belt, as does CR Speed, Double Alpha, and Shooter's Connection. Would anyone say one is better than another for a heavier shooter? Is there a substantial difference between the options? Also, does anyone use the Blade-Tech drop/offset instead of something like the BOSS? I like the TekLok system, and, well, it's cheaper.
  5. I just took a "Safe Handgun Competitor" course at Richmond Rod & Gun club and I'm hooked. Unfortunately I can't shoot a match until April because of my work schedule (unless I find another club...) but I'm so excited to go for it.
  6. Where does your eye focus with a 1x optic? At the distance of the reticle? I've always loved that red dots (even if they're a little off-round due to my astigmatism) focus at infinity so I can reasonably shoot with both eyes open.
  7. I don't mean a variable (1-6x or so) optic, but a pure 1x like this prism optic from primary arms: https://www.primaryarms.com/pa-1x-compact-prism-scope-with-acss-cyclops-reticle-black What's the advantage/disadvantage compared to a red dot?
  8. Flexes too much in what way? I've never made targets, but it seems like it's going to stay where you put it.
  9. Sorry I started this thread, it was clearly unwise in hindsight.
  10. I understand your point, and had not considered that before hand, but like @RJH, I doubt it makes any differences to the antis. They're uneducated about firearms and I don't think they'll try to educate themselves anyway. I'd rather avoid new incidents by learning from the mistakes of others in the past. (New mistakes would obviously also be fuel for antis...)
  11. At the RO's temple, or his own? I mean, either is insane behavior. Quite frankly, should've resulted in criminal charges, but I understand why not drawing attention might've been desirable.
  12. Curious so that we can all learn what not to do. (And because there are some good stories.) I'm a very new shooter, and I want to learn what to avoid. (Obviously, muzzle control and trigger finger control are critical.) I'd love to hear how it got to the situation as well.
  13. Ah, makes sense. Thanks for the quick answer!
  14. Never even seen a 2011-style gun in person, so this is probably a stupid question. Are all of them SAO?
