Howdy all, long time lurker. I've been shooting for a yer or so, mostly in outlaw steel matches but am transitioning to USPSA competition this month. I was originally going to compete in Production with a Shadow 2, but I've got an offer for a trade on the table that has me questioning if I should take the deal. I appreciate any feedback.
I've got a S2 Urban Gray / Black with around 100 rounds through it. He's offering his CZC Bull Shadow (Carry Optics Version) with 6k rounds through it for even trade.
I know price wise, I would come out ahead since his gun is $800 more than mine new, and even with the wear of 6k rounds, it seems like good trade on my end (to me). I like the idea of starting off in Carry Optic too since I can focus on shooting more and reloading less. I have a DPP I would use with it.
Anyone with knowledge of the Bull Shadow who can chime in on how it runs for carry optics? I don't have much match time in with a RDS, just using friends' here and there, I know I would need to practice acquiring the dot a lot during dry fire etc..
Also, I might be wrong, but it feels like CO might be a better starting division choice for me , production and the 10 round limit puts me off a little as a new guy.
TL:DR Would you take the trade and run in CO division?
