  1. Agree 100%. Major is some "Free Extra Points" 33% extra for every C and 50% more for every D than minor. I'm not saying you get those entire percentages but you get more than you pay for with felt recoil. I shot some Production with Major PF 45 ACP (stock XD) and I found that my mind/body compensated for most of the recoil after a few shots. That's ok, in USPSA we have room for everybody. If you need free extra points to stay interested the game you can get them. I'm not knocking it, it's quite clever actually. The more people that will play the game the better.
  2. Thanks, there is quite a lot of thought that goes into framing a video shot, lighting, timing and editing to make it entertaining. In this video I was combining cinematography and shooting skills. In full disclosure of how this was accomplished the distances on the cardboard targets were only 5 yards. (magic of the wide angle) It took 4 runs on the single target to get 6 consecutive pairs in the A zone. It took two runs to get the time near 5 seconds for the six reload six drill with 8A 4C. The steel was 9 yards. It took one run on the steel, in fact that is my personal record for that drill and it was the first time I've tried it since last fall. I was feeling lucky. Thanks for watching.
  3. Sorry I didn't notice this was posted on the revolver forum.
  4. I'm not an equipment gamer. I'm still running the light weight P320 RX in CO. I have 2 plus an original 320. It's very light compared to a Legion. For me it's a money thing. I'm sure running a 3 and a half pound pistol would be an advantage. However, quality voluminous training like I do will trump minor advantages like this without the training.
  5. It can be tough to get good dry fire practice with family around. I would silence your phone and lock the door. I am fortunate to have my own private pistol range 50 yards out my back door. I incorporate dry and live fire on my range by inserting a loaded mag without chambering a round. Then, I will do a dry fire drill for 2-5 minutes until I am really relaxed then chamber a round and do the drill live. This has been the best training for me and saves ammo. I can make 60 rounds last over an hour. On the cold days I have to dry fire only in the house, not nearly as fun, but I will often leave my gear on and walk outside and run one or two drills live fire in the cold.
  6. Those are some good suggestions. I did mount the press through two perforated angle steel, that helped a little. A 12x12 piece of oak would stiffen it I'm sure.
  7. Looks nice and solid. I built mine out of two layers of 3/4 plywood thinking it would be stiff enough but it still has a little flex when I work the handle.
  8. I think this is the most intelligent comment on this subject.
  9. I get what you are saying, if it was like bang beep. It would be confusing. I have wondered why PCCs don't start muzzle down in a barrel instead of in hand to eliminate this possibility.
  10. Since your sorry about the personal inquiry I'll ignore it. I'm not sure if you understand my "conclusion". According to the experts on this thread it seems that per current USPSA rules if a PCC shooter made ready and then lit off a round just before the buzzer went off this would not be a DQ even though said shooter did not keep his firearm safety on as required, had his finger in the trigger guard, and pressed the trigger all before the buzzer went off. I'm not saying that it is against the rules. I'm saying it is strange that it isn't against the rules being that it is clearly negligent and in violation off at least one of the basic universal firearms safety rules. That some experienced USPSA shooters would think this is not dangerous behavior (as has been expressed) is troubling to me also. It's just my opinion.
  11. Open guns manage recoil mechanically, much less for the shooter to do.
