  1. Ordered 3 cases of 125s on July 30 and the guy I was in contact with was pretty responsive. Told me that the order was supposed to ship out over a week ago, but haven't heard anything since then or received a tracking number and now they aren't responding to my emails. Creeping up on 10 weeks now. Gallant always seems like they don't quite have their act together. I have had times in the past when they haven't shipped a delayed order until I called about it (kind of like they were overwhelmed and were prioritizing anyone who was complaining about delays). Seems kind of odd.
  2. You have a favorite out of the different dots you've tested?
  3. Yeah, that really is the impression I'm starting to get.
  4. 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!
  5. You have any idea how many rounds you've put through the gun with that dot?
  6. 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.
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. Seems like a pretty cool setup. Looks like a .40 75B SA top end, right?
  13. 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?
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. I really like this idea and I was thinking about doing exactly that until I found out about the dot requirement.
  18. Did you bother to read the original post? I'll go over the key point to save you the trouble of scrolling back to read it: I don't give a crap about the capacity restriction; make it 10, make it 15, make it 8... doesn't matter to me. However, since there are currently no other iron sight divisions where you can be competitive shooting minor and Production has been drying up a bit recently, 15-round Production seems like a pretty cool idea since it would probably help draw people back into the division. The "shoot Limited minor" mantra I keep hearing is kind of dumb since everyone knows tha
  19. Having to run weird nonlinear stage plans in order to plan around reloading every 10 rounds frequently does drive people away from Production to other divisions as soon as they can get guns that enable them to compete elsewhere. There are also way too many nationally competitive GMs shooting plastic guns for anyone to think that you need an expensive gun to win Production matches. I addressed the 10-round limit in certain states in my original post. If you live in a Commie state and you are involved enough in the sport to want to travel to matches in unrestricted states, then you
  20. I personally don't care about the division capacity and I definitely wouldn't be in favor of increasing the capacity limit if it caused more people to leave. However, I do know a lot of people who dislike reloading 3+ times during a long course and cite this as the main reason that they don't shoot Production anymore. Why not run a provisional 15 round division and see if it's popular? It won't drastically change how the dynamic of the division and it doesn't contradict the vision of Production as a place where you can shoot "stock" guns. To reiterate, my main concern is increasing partici
  21. You must be referring to Gabe White. I saw him shoot at Area 1 this year. Pretty impressive.
  22. I really, REALLY like this. What would you do about gear placement on belts?
  23. It would be kind of cool to not stick every single new shooter who shows up with a Glock 17 in Limited minor. At least the winning stage HFs in Production would be less intimidating. Nick, you're classified in Production, right? What would it take for me to talk you into pulling out a Glock for a club match or two?
  24. Does Sevigny still shoot? I haven't seen his name in any major results in 2 or 3 years. Did FN shut down their shooting team?
  25. I think the solution is that I should just move to Atlanta! You guys have something like 5 Production GMs there, don't you? 125mm mags sound kind of cool. Where did Foley say this? I agree that hi-cap minor-only iron sights would make for an interesting division to try out.
