  1. I tapped it. Instead of drilling it to .112 I drilled it .102 for the little extra stretch then tapped it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Disconnect plunger spring was the first thing I did my pistol huge difference for only $5. I tend to not mess with the striker springs because I’d rather have a gun that runs 100% than one that runs 99%. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. It’s a 6-32 .250” SS grub screw. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Yes easily. My next one will be longer. No taper required. The stock frame opening is .050” over what was required. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. GunCraft did the stippling. I thought about making more rods but they won’t be cheap. I might try a brass one next it’s easier to work with. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Ordered a Galloway SS guide rod and was disappointed it weighed .4oz less than the stock rod. So I turned a SS full length guide rod that uses 1911 springs on the lathe. It weighs .9oz more than factory. I also cut down a 1911 bushing to fit inside the unmodified frame. A commander length 18lb spring seems to work just fine but I’ll play with lighter springs later. Also added a pre-travel screw to the factory trigger as well. It’s shown in the pic at full take-up, I won’t be using it that close. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Forgot about this post sorry guys. I ended up with adding a SS guide rod and flat trigger from Galloway It already had the CZC plunger spring installed and a DPP mounted. Before I gave it to him it had 14k rounds thru it, it now has 19k+ with no malfunctions and is still deadly accurate. He added some Taran base pads with grams springs to hold 25r and does fairly well in carry optics.
  8. Not sure if this is a well know target setup but it has really helped me keep shots in the A. I start at 7y draw and shoot 2r on the buzzer and re-holster. Par ~1.30s at 7y, split .12-.15. If I miss the center I stop what I’m doing and retape as a punishment. (I didn’t retape for this 160r because I wanted to show off the target) After every mag I go back a few yards. 7 then 10, 15, 20, and 25y. It really seems to make me notice and try to correct my bad shots and forcing myself to retape every non-A is an extra incentive. I also use this target for Bill drills and it really forces you to keep them all then the A. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. I live in Apollo Beach,Fl. I’m a long time shooter/competitor that has recently gotten into USPSA again after a 7y hiatus. I’ve shot F-class, PRS, Benchrest and NSCA. I’m an avid reloader and wildcatter. I’ve actually bought my first progressive to load major and I’m amazed at the speed and ease 9mm can be loaded. My local range is GunCraft of Ruskin Fl.
  10. Tonight we both complained about bad backs and bad shoulders. We are getting old. It isn’t that late. I’ve just had the right amount of vodka tonight to post inane comments to strangers online. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. I’m only recently married. She’s still fast and I’m still chasing her. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Not gonna lie. I don’t have an auto that will beat any modern quartz I’m pretty sure there isn’t one. My GShock is built to last but sadly doesn’t make me smile when I look at it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  14. The soldier stood and faced God, Which must always come to pass, He hoped his shoes were shining, Just as brightly as his brass. "Step forward now, you soldier, How shall I deal with you? Have you always turned the other cheek? To My Church have you been true?" The soldier squared his shoulders and said, "No, Lord, I guess I ain't, Because those of us who carry guns, Can't always be a saint. I've had to work most Sundays, And at times my talk was tough, And sometimes I've been violent, Because the world is awfully rough. But, I never took a penny That wasn't mine to keep... Though I worked a lot of overtime When the bills got just too steep, And I never passed a cry for help, Though at times I shook with fear, And sometimes, God forgive me, I've wept unmanly tears. I know I don't deserve a place Among the people here, They never wanted me around, Except to calm their fears. If you've a place for me here, Lord, It needn't be so grand, I never expected or had too much, But if you don't, I'll understand." There was a silence all around the throne, Where the saints had often trod, As the soldier waited quietly, For the judgment of his God. "Step forward now, you soldier, You've borne your burdens well, Walk peacefully on Heaven's streets, You've done your time in Hell." To all that serve. -- Sgt Joshua Helterbran Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. My buddy bombed a stage he is usually a B-C shooter just didn’t pay attention at all to the hoser stage. Dropped mags, missed targets, shot black, shot white, everything possible. “Well now I’ve shown everything you shouldn’t do. Now show me the right way”
