  1. You have a favorite out of the different dots you've tested?
  2. Yeah, that really is the impression I'm starting to get.
  3. Just picked up a CO gun and I'm shopping around for a dot to throw on it. The price on the Romeo 1 looks pretty great, but I keep hearing people say that the vertical zero can drift pretty badly. Anybody experienced this with a Romeo 1? Approximate round counts on your dots would be much appreciated. It also seems like Sig tried to iron out the vertical drift kinks with the "TruHold" zeroing system that they added to the Romeo 1 Pro. If you have both, how does the Pro compare to the original in terms of reliability? Thanks!
  4. You have any idea how many rounds you've put through the gun with that dot?
  5. Is anybody running a dot on a SP-01 Shadow with a CZ Custom RDS baseplate cut? If so, how do you like it and what kind of optic lifespan did you get? Any idea how the dot longevity compares to direct mounting? I have heard people say that mounting to an adapter plate on the slide of a metal frame gun is more likely to beat up a dot because the attachment isn't as solid as direct mounting, but I'd be interested to hear from someone who has run this particular setup if that is actually true.

    Shadow 2 vs. SP-01

    If you care about the reset, they also sell a short reset kit that will get you really close to the reset on the S2 without removing the FPB safety.

    Shadow 2 vs. SP-01

    The hammer in the S2 is significantly improved compared to the factory SP-01 hammer which is absolute trash. If you don't want to pay for a full Pro Package from Cajun Gun Works, just pick up an adjustable sear and hammer kit from them for less than $150. It isn't that hard to install and it really improves trigger break (it will be even better than the factory S2 trigger when you're done).

    Extractor issues TSO

    I had this exact same problem with a brand new SP-01 Shadow. The extractor spring was just out of spec. Swapped it out for a different (factory) spring and the problem went away.
  9. I started with bullets forward and then switched to bullets out 'cause Stoeger makes it look cool. Stuck with that for about a year, then switched back to bullets forward because I found it more difficult to get the base of the mags to contact the same spot on my palm every time with bullets out. This would occasionally cause the mag to not seat properly and fall back out of the gun after a reload. Haven't had that problem since switching back. I don't notice any difference in reload speed between the two setups. I think it just comes down to whether you prefer having your index finger or
  10. I don't want to change Production because I have any problem with the division in its current state. As I have mentioned multiple times, I do not give a crap about the round limit in Production and I am fine with the rules the way they are. However, participation in Production has been falling off since the introduction of other minor-only divisions. It therefore seems logical that in order to stay relevant, Production needs an identity that allows it to compete for participation with PCC and CO. "The iron sight minor-only division" sounds a lot more attractive than "the minor-only divisio
  11. Seems like a pretty cool setup. Looks like a .40 75B SA top end, right?
  12. I realize you posted this a long time ago, but I'm really curious what kind of capacity you got out of that setup. I've been thinking about converting a SP-01 to .40 to play around in Limited, but I couldn't find small frame 140mm basepads which could get the capacity above 17 rounds. What capacity were you getting?
  13. Ha! You think I can be taken in so easily? Your schemes are futile! I know better than to ever mess with the Mesa/Phoenix shooting scene. It is common knowledge that the entire greater Phoenix area has been endowed with unholy magic which enables even the "vested ones" to shoot with reasonable speed and accuracy. No, thank you, good sir. I do not hold with such devilry. I will content myself with crushing the dreams of local yokels and leave the darkness of Mesa/Phoenix to those of stouter heart than myself.
  14. I think a larger part of it was "Stegger" making DA/SA look cool. I definitely drank the Koolaid on that one. Oddly enough, "Stegger" doesn't do the "Flip'N'Catch", though.
  15. IDPA does serve a purpose. Anytime I'm depressed after getting spanked at a major USPSA match, I hit up my local IDPA club so that can I take out my rage on the vest-wearers. I feel like a shooting god in no time.
