  1. Allows you to load the SG when bolt is locked to rear. Once you start feeding the tube, it'll automatically load one in the chamber for you. Biggest draw is it prevents Port loading. An alternative option to the Browning A5.
  2. Fresh piece of fiber always helps the situation. I like the Prism lense when shooting irons but especially when shooting a red dot. This makes the dot really "pop". It's probably a personal preference to most. Try a couple pair at the range when you see a fellow competitor using them. Now that you know which options to look for the best decision will be the one you like most! Good luck!
  3. First off, unload and show clear isn't a race. I never cover the ejection port when unloading and showing clear. It's not often but your ejector could hit primer and mess your hand up when it goes boom! Some people don't want the round to hit the ground but it's only a few cents wasted if you can't recover it and it's not worth the flip and catch and risk a DQ or taking your focus away from making your gun safe. Ultimately it's your responsibility to have a clear gun so I always visually check chamber after unloading and before, hammer down, holster command. It takes an extra 1/2 second and ensures I can remain shooting for the rest of the day.
  4. Shooting a Dot is a target focused sight picture where irons are sight focused. I often switch back and forth after shooting irons exclusively for the last 3-4 years. I think repetition is what makes you proficient in your division and swapping mental focus ever couple matches makes it difficult if you want to compete. I'd say you should plan your season so you shoot division 1 for half the season and Div 2 the other half. Might be the best of both worlds unless you're just shooting for fun.
  5. Look for a drill on YouTube called "step back drill". It's a 6" shoot and see target. Start at 3 yards shoot 3 shoots. You want them to be touching. (No draw, or speed required. To start!) Step back 2 yards (repeat) go back to 30+ yards. All shots must remain in the 6" circle or you start that position over again. This will teach you to trust your sight and "shot calling" eventually you can incorporate the draw into this and a par time as well as taking a lateral, front or rear step while drawing to simulate a moving draw like you will see in a match. DON'T USE STEEL! paper doesn't lie and will tell you the story of where you're missing and you'll see trends. You'll build the confidence you're looking for and know how fast you can shoot and what sight picture you can get away with at each distance. Take notes, pictures etc and document par times when you get to that step.
  6. Just made a post that was looking for something like this. I'm going to try part one and I'll be in touch. Sounds like a good wonder drill to speed up those transitions.
  7. Safariland belt with some 3/4 strap and ratchet from ratchet.com. ($10) it's an awesome setup. I had a Gen 1 CA belt that eventually gave out and broke (I followed the directions and didn't use the T-nuts and it still broke. I have no experience ith the new belt he teamed up with Weber tactical on but ever since I got my safariland belt I haven't looked back.
  8. Plano sells a small 10x12x12 waterproof box that has a divider inside to split in 4 quadrants. I load my mags prior to match and put 8 rifle mags (55gr) in one section. 4 (75 grn) another section and 200 rds of 9mm with 6 mags loaded in 3rd section. The 4th is for choke tubes slugs and spare parts kit. Throw that in a stroller or waggon with your guns and it'll keep you organized and fit all your ammo minus shot. It's only $20 and can be had on Amazon. Great addition!
  9. I too had this issue. Ensure you're washing your hands after range sessions and shower after you get home. Lead is attracted to hit very easily. You'd be surprised how much sticks to facial hair (if you have any). As long as there is good ventilation at your range it's most likely from hand to mouth contact. Good luck!
  10. Seems as though the top guys are making up not of their time in speedy transition. What are good drills to speed this process up? I assume you can only shoot as fast as you can see so is there eye excercises that aid in these drills? Thanks
  11. "Everyone can shoot". Working on setups, getting in and out of positions and foot work seem to be improving my game. Especially on those tough positions hitting your mark and being in the correct spot is most important IMO. I'm only a B class shooter so take it as you will.
  12. @Focker I agree with you. Additionally, if you have your stage plan to the point it's memorized and setups are all planned everything seems to be much smoother. Once the beep goes off you're pretty much in auto pilot if your stage is memorized. Now just see the sights and pull the trigger.
  13. At majors I feel the BBQ style lunches make me tired and sluggish. I try and bring snacks and utilize that time to walk the next couple stages and really burn that stage plan in my memory. Lunch is over rated.
  14. Check out Warwick tactical for Slides. Made in the US all in house. They've been in business (as a machine shop) for over 30 years. Slides come Tri-Topped. Currently out of stock but will Be back soon. Check out the website www.warwicktactical.com. feel free to PM me with any questions as I have a bunch of their guns as well as slides and frames sitting around for future builds.
  15. Has anyone notice a difference in the "crispness" of the Dot? I've been told the edges are getting more defined in the newer models> any input?
