  1. For what it’s worth if you watch like a hawk you can snag some TG still. They sell out fast but I’ve managed to get about 20lbs in about a 2 week period.
  2. I’m not worried about the 90% there. I’m worried about the other 10%. In any scenario where shot placement might be a big deal, I’ll go dot every time.
  3. I've been struggling a lot with too much tension lately. I honestly believe that this is in large part because of the amount of personal and work stress I've been under - we're trying to plan our wedding, and courtesy of the COVID situation we've basically had to re-plan and re-budget everything twice, only to end up (for now) back to a slightly downsized version of our original plan, venue, etc. When I'm not bringing baggage to the range with me, or when I successfully beat that back in my head and focus, things are going really well. I have been able to pass 15 yard doubles a few
  4. Mine was pretty embarrassing. I've still never been DQ'ed, waiting for that day to happen. It was a bigger weekend match in our state championship points series this past year so I'd been shooting competitions for 3 or 4 years by this point. The shooting area was a sort of U or V shaped bit with walls making up the inner boundary. You started outside of the shooting area in front of the walls touching some barrels. There were a mix of targets that you'd shoot from the outer edge of the shooting area, targets you'd shoot from close to the rear of the shooting area, and targets
  5. Basically you charge whatever you need to. USPSA charges $40/head plus lodging and a reasonable per diem for the instructor. For newly affiliated clubs that meet some requirements for activity they also offer a special program where the first 20 spots are at no charge from USPSA. My club just had that program so we took $40/head across the board and what we saved from the new club program covered the rest easily. Another older club locally is doing a class and charging $65 each.
  6. Are you using the trigger spring it comes with, or something else like a Sprinco? re: the parts that fell out - big oof. I have taken the sear cage all the way apart and the springs for the single action lever and the sear are absolute nightmares. Makes working on a decocker CZ seem like a walk in the park. Hoping I can come up with some good tricks for my full teardown video to make it easier.
  7. Apex still hasn’t released anything for the SF. the Overwatch is real nice. So is the new Walther Dynamic Performance Trigger.
  8. I can guarantee you any setback issue with the MA dies is due to over flaring. the MA dies spec size and do a great job at it. If you flare like you do with an undersized die you will eventually lose neck tension. I had this issue too and I was flaring way too much as soon as I adjusted that to the recommended amount per MA’s instructions I have had 0 issues since.
  9. The MA die is great but be aware it’s spec sizing, not undersize. I flare less with their dies than I did with undersize dies before.
  10. Wow. This year certainly keeps on getting worse. To be honest I thought he died years ago. Now I find out he wasn't dead...but is now.
  11. I suggest reaching out to HQ directly. I am not aware of a special upgrade price available by default. you get a new number that starts with B.
  12. Yes. you can see their IRS form 990 filings here: https://www.causeiq.com/organizations/united-states-practical-shooting-association,911325053/ Additionally you can set them up as a charity for automatic payroll deductions, potentially with company matching, for many employers who use one of the standard giving platforms out there. And if you use Amazon Smile you can set it up as your charity there too.
  13. Benefactor membership the second half of it is a donation so you can take a tax deduction for that portion. Other than that, you get the cool number and a badge on your profile and a little certificate. - B65
  14. Progress last few weeks For the most part, I'm doing well, but when I get inconsistent, I'm doing so the same couple of ways - occasional tensing of my firing hand, occasional weak support hand grip, and occasional whole body tension. Almost all of my non-alphas are in one of these buckets, and I get occasional trigger freeze from the tensing issues. I think I've resolved an earlier issue I had that I characterize as "I acknowledge there is a trigger but do not acknowledge the direction it should be pulled". I was pulling shots all over, charlies deltas Mike's you name it once
  15. I picked one up too, was actually running just the fire control with the Overwatch trigger for a while and decided to get the Walther to compare. If you all looked up an install video, it was probably mine. I did a new video comparing the two and giving my first impressions. So far I'm one range session in, and still had to do some tweaks, but I think this is a winner.
