  1. Does anyone have any experience with SVT ammo? A local shop just received a pallet of 9mm and the price isn't bad all things considered. I know nothing about it and was looking for some feedback before I get a couple cases. Thanks

    Slide bite

    I realize this has been talked about a lot, but I came up with something that’s helped me and I wanted to share. I have larger hands and grip very high on the frame. It seems obvious that all I would need to do is add one of the beaver tails and everything should be ok. Problem is, when I have a beaver tail on, I seem to shoot left. If I take it off I am now back on target, but the slide gets me. What I’ve done is cut the beaver tail off about 1/4” below where the pinhole is. This is so I can get protection from the slide and hit my target since it’s not “altering” the way I grip the pistol. I realize some people blame slide bite on improper grip, and that may be the case, but this works well for me. I just wanted to post this in case anyone was still having issues and don’t really like the “change” a different blackstrap gives you.
  3. Thanks for all the replies. I'll go ahead and install the TTI spring. I did order the Wolff springs, but they were not very expensive, so I'll throw them in the tool kit for now. You all have been a big help. Thanks.
  4. Thanks for the quick reply. I ordered the Wolff 4.5 lb spring and I will install it with the other parts from the TTI spring kit.
  5. Recently purchased this kit for a Gen 5 G34. Should I install all the springs (striker especially) that come in the kit? I shoot factory ammo and probably won’t reload for a long time (if ever). I will be using the factory striker, but was wondering if I should be concerned with light strikes on factory ammo.
  6. Thank you. I’ll probably start looking into cameras.
  7. I'm just wondering how you all feel about using a camera for improvement? This year will be my first actual competitive shooting and I do want to improve. I'm taking a lesson from Bob Vogel so he can tell me my weak points and what I need to work on. I do shoot weekly at the range, but I'd like to have someone film me so I can actually see the differences. Do you think I'd be wasting time filming myself?
