  1. I made weight when the USPSA limit was 45oz with the DPP and SRO using the factory plate, and R3Max on a springer plate, factory or LOK grips, and a 140mm extension by a comfortable margin.
  2. Got to shoot both running chrono at MN Section this year. Is it enough to justify the difference shooting them in PCC I dunno. But for me the difference is the GMR is nice and I’ll never buy one vs. I actually want a JP-5.
  3. DA/SA is what selective action refers to. See Appendix A3 glossary definition of Selective Action.
  4. Basically the M1 chip can drive 2 displays - internal screen + external, or in the case of the Mac mini 2 externals. hold out a bit longer. The rumor mill says the new MacBook pros will have a higher end chip and I assume it’ll handle multiple monitors cleanly.
  5. This is specific to recording of phone / video conferencing, not matches. Federally, and in most states, at least one party to the conversation must be aware of the recording in order for it to be legal. Some states, including FL and WA, require everyone who is party to the conversation to consent for recording to be permitted. By stating their unwillingness to consent, an audio or video recording of the conversation would be illegal. Things like meeting minutes would still be permitted. I think the goal here would be to prevent any party to the conversation from leaking audio / video of the meeting given the controversial nature of the proceedings.
  6. you literally just changed my life. My word that was so much easier.
  7. The silicone skin has a lanyard loop so you can clip it with a carabiner or hold it around the neck with the lanyard. not what I would have chosen obviously but it works.
  8. Shooters toolbox 3d prints a holder with a belt clip. You can also throw a piece of metal inside the silicone skin and hold it with a magnet.
  9. I really crank down on the locking nut with a wrench. Seems to do the trick here.
  10. So my perspective is based on two things: 1. My own PDP 4” compact which I use as a carry gun 2. My training partner switched from G34s to the 4” full size PDP (he likes shorter barrel longer grip with a red dot). I really love the platform. I was already a PPQ guy and compete with and carry the SFs. I think the PDP is a solid step forward from an already great starting point. The slide profile change is way easier to manipulate. Grip texture is subjective. I personally find the texture aggressive but the polymer is kinda slick like the SF factory grips... I’m probably gonna modify mine some. it really sings with the Walther dynamic trigger fyi. As mentioned the 18 round mags are unobtainable. My buddy got a bunch of Canik mags when the first batch of PDPs came in the moment someone confirmed the mags worked and I haven’t seen them since. We’ve had a serious conversation a few times about whether he gets a second backup gun to have more mags.
  11. The sprinco recoil reduction system is worth a try. I ended up doing ZRTS in all of mine but the sprinco had an interesting feel to it and is far easier to install (15# spring on the ZRTS requires some elbow grease and dexterity). IMO we need someone to come up with a decent captured guide rod system.
  12. Everyone here talking about a gas delay system like the P7… while I agree in principle it seems like a cool idea and does awesome stuff for the gun and recoil, the P7 gets HOT around the piston area. I would not want to run that in a high round count match or practice.
  13. Charlie I am going off of things being taught in the RO and CRO seminars in addition to the rule book. I think the real issue here is partially, as you say, the glossary definition of sight picture, but also the definition of target. NROI is intending the sight picture concept in the rule book to mean you point the gun at something and look through the sights. Target is being interpreted more broadly than scoring or no shoot targets you’re supposed to shoot at. The glossary definition of target does not explicitly call out this version of target. Regardless, the real thing in the rule that makes this a DQ is not the sight picture, it’s the turning on of the dot at all. This is a specific example indicated in the rules as being either safety area or COF exclusive.
  14. Supervision in that rule is talking about supervision & control of the competitor during the COF. You may look down the sights / optic of the PCC at the safety area, or after "Make Ready" at the COF, but nowhere else. That includes at the sky, or even the berm where you can uncase it outside of the safety area.
  15. Taylor freelance already does this for Canik and Walther back straps.
  16. I moved both my holster and first mag pouch forward to approximately over the point of the hip bones. Then I added a bullets out magnet with the right edge of the pouch mount in line with the left edge of my fly. I also threw a Divtec magnet between that bullets out magnet and the holster to hold my shot timer.
  17. I get frustrated whenever I hear this myth that we need special divisions for those states. Rule 3.3.1 handles this across all divisions. L10 was started as a place to send the Single Stacks before Single Stack. Production was started for off the shelf guns, not to give 10-round states a division to play with. The capacity was an equalizer across a wide variety of models.
  18. Buddy of mine has a hat mount that mounts *above* the bill on the front of the hat.
  19. The website can also key off your member # if you set that up in your profile for a given sport. Also, if you changed USPSA membership types (annual to three or five year, or life member, you can set up to search by multiple member #s. I'm at 101 since 12/2017. Probably a few more than that where I didn't have a member # yet or didn't supply it.
  20. I should also be able to get you some brass with a bigger variety of headstamps, happy to contribute to the cause
  21. Save yourself a bunch of hassle. the factory screws strip the heads so fast. these torx ones should do the trick. M3 torx screws
  22. This is spot on. i also got diagnosed as an adult. Was treating with medication towards the end of college but stopped it when it caused other issues. I have been competing for about 4 years but always had issues motivating myself to practice, and I’d see my focus drift in and out throughout the match. I had a hard time being aware of what I was doing and being consistent. I went back on medication late last year. It’s taken some time to get used to how I process information. As long as I am intentional about where I want to focus my attention, I can get out there and practice and build skills and string together a good match.
  23. Maybe you could use a rubber band or something to hold it for a few mags to see if the issue stops before actually pinning it.
