  1. I’ve read about the Carbon Arms belt but never seen one. Seems like a good idea, especially with those of us using longer belts. Anybody have any feedback on the carbon arms belt in particular or the concept in general? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  2. I have a 16” DPMS that runs great for HM Optics 3Gun. It’s worked for me out to 700 yd.s. I’ve been thinking about trying PRS and am trying to figure out the best value. I was thinking about either building an upper for my LR-08 or buying a bolt gun like the Howa HCR or a Bergera BMP. Was thinking of probably going with a 6.5 CM either way. Any thoughts?

  3. Being the He-Manly old cuss that I am, I think I'll shoot my .45 'cause it's fun [emoji106][emoji2][emoji106] This will also help me to feel better when and if I get beat by a retired schoolmarm [emoji102][emoji51][emoji30] Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  4. Jesse & I are both looking at the rules posted on the website... It looked to me like maybe something had been missed, hence the original question. Either way, I'll adapt... Their match, their rules. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Reviewed the Tac-Heavy equipment rules. Not seeing any minimum caliber or magazine capacity restrictions for the pistol. Does that mean a Glock 9mm with 140mm hi-cap mags is ok? Also wondering if when shooting this division with a minor pistol, the 1 shot on paper to neutralize rule still applies. Not trying to stir up a bucket... Just want to be clear. Really looking fwd to this match. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  6. They both seem like great ranges.. I need a lot of work with my rifles so ETTS seems best for me... It's great to have a practice venue again [emoji106][emoji3][emoji106] Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  7. I've been looking for a range in Texas for practice ever since we left Nevada in 2012. One of the guys I squadded with at NTXMG suggested I check out ETTS in Waxahachie (http://www.ettsgunrange.com/home#intro ). I'm really happy that I took his advice. This range is 1 hour from our house in Carrollton and has sunup-to-sundown access for members. Patrick and his crew are super friendly and glad to help. I went out yesterday for my 1st visit as a new member. I asked if they had any steel I could setup for pistol & shotgun drills. Patrick showed me where it's all stored and let me have at it... Man, this guy likes to weld. Had some interesting designs too. His target stands are made from plate and kinda heavy but you don't have to stake 'em. Had a great day, Looking fwd to getting to know these folks. [emoji106][emoji3][emoji106] Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  8. Was chatting with an ex-Marine at the range yesterday. He shared that he learned to zero the ACOG with a target at 37 yards using the 300m Aiming line (second down from the chevron). He said this would set point of impact at the top of the chevron for 100m, first line below it at 200m and so on with M193 55gr ammo. He shared that his unit used this method for setting/checking zero in the field. Can anyone verify if I got this right and share any experience using this method for the game? Sounds like it would save a lot of time. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  9. Wahoo!! Accepted and signed up for Squad 7 [emoji106][emoji3][emoji106] Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  10. Signed up on practiscore today and it was still "Open"... Keeping my fingers crossed. Hope to see many old friends there. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  11. All packed and ready to go. Hope to leave by 0400 and then pickup Larry in Abilene along the way. Can't wait to see the sunrise over NM !
  12. I've seen a lot of shooters (some of them Pro's) DQ'd for dropped guns in 3Gun with every kind of race holster under the sun. Once in a great while the holster device is broken or incorrectly adjusted. However, the overwhelming majority result from operator error related to a lock on the device, placement of the gun in the device or interaction with a prop. That said, I've yet to see an open gun come out of a kydex holster made by COM or others. Nothing is perfect and I'm sure kydex is no exception. All I can say is that's what I've seen.
  13. As Pat said, this rule varies match to match. Most matches now recognize 2 sub-divisions within He-man or Heavy-Metal. One allows an optic on the rifle and the other limits rifle sights to one set of irons. The sub-division that allows an optic is referred to as "HM-Optic" or "Heavy-Tac[tical]" sometimes allows a semi-auto SG. Some matches will even allow a high-cap .40(USPSA) or 9mm(TXMG) pistols. The sub-division that requires iron rifle sights is referred to as "HM-Limited" or "Heavy Irons". This sub-division almost always requires a pump SG and a .45ACP. Confusion is common. Check the rules carefully. If it's a big match, print a copy of the rule set and stash it in your bag. Welcome to the game!
  14. Sunday was my 1st experience shooting the CCC 3G and I really enjoyed myself. There was close to 100 rounds of SG (all birdshot) which I really needed since I haven't run my pump SG since last year's He-Man. I wasn't sure how I'd feel about Fred's "hit every target before you go on to the next one" rule. As it turned out, the par time was reasonable as long as you brought enough bullets. The "Rifleman's Ridge" really gave me a chance to go to work with my rifle engaging a total of 31 targets from 6 positions. Once I settled down and started getting 1st shot hits at 300+, it felt like I was actually learning something. That alone was worth the 3 hour drive from San Antonio. The other huge plus was getting to shoot with my old buddy Larry LeBeau.
