  1. After shooting Dragon's Cup and squadding with Max Michel, I've had a bit of an introspective moment. The thing about shooting that I enjoyed the most (besides the comradery) was the pursuit of improvement. I'm content with the distance covered throughout my journey thus far. I'm no longer addicted to improving my shooting, and if that's the case, then I have to realize that it's time for something else. That something is golf. I've never played in my life, but there's an unescapable appeal to getting good at something that I'm complete garbage at. My goal is to average in the 70s
  2. It comes down to people not separating short-term proficiency with long-term improvement. People care too much about perfect reps. I care about improving my skills steadily in the long-term. The process is simple to the point where it offends some because they mistake it for being easy. Why is it hilarious to think that others can improve their shooting by drawing on my experience? Just because I'm an outlier, why does that discount my approach for others? I started in C class. I was told by more seasoned shooters that what I was trying is a waste of time. Now that I'm not, some ar
  3. I wonder how accurate sorting by mass is. That way, you can have some sort of pre-sort prior to the vision models.
  4. I think it's necessary to be able to teach yourself in order to get good. Part of that process is to be able to identify your own weaknesses in an objective manner. I assume you're trying to get out of B class. Looking at your recent matches and past classifier history, it's apparent than you're not shooting fast enough. Your highest classifier percentage ever is 81.8096%. The locals that you won were partly due to the open heat not showing up. When compared to the G open shooters at your club, they're shooting stages 2 seconds faster than you. Moreover, there seems to be a good portion of sta
  5. The MCK 26 is a blast to shoot. I wasn't confident with it at all for the first two stages. On my first stage, the weight and length of the magazine made it feel like it was wobbling out with every shot. This made me worry about it unseating and I overran a position from the mental error (about 5 seconds lost). On the second stage, I threw an extra shot at all the long targets wasting another 2-3 seconds. Overall, if I kept the same hits but adjusted the times, it would basically be tied with my backup ARs in placement (also function tested my FMP, which ran great). Long story shor
  6. Got my tax stamp and MCK. I dremeled the chassis for better hand clearance. The threaded bolt and gaffer tape is to mitigate frame wobble. Without the modifications, there's about an A zone worth of flex at 5 yards which is obviously unacceptable. With the modifications, I have to really force it to exhibit the same amount of barrel deviation. I'll see at my next match whether or not it maintains acceptable accuracy. A picture including my two backup ARs.
  7. Recently got my CCL. Glock 26 for both competition and carry. Tier1 Concealed w/ extra mag.
  8. All I know is that the casing will explode at 7.8gr and you'll have to buy a new extractor and magazine release. Possible small cuts and embedded pieces of brass in the hands too. I think most people will recommend you use a slower burning powder to avoid the Titegroup pressure spike. At 4.0gr, I think it's already near or at the recommended pressure limit.
  9. Thanks for the info. Placed a preorder for the Evolution model. Will update once I run a few thousand primers through.
  10. Shot my first PCC match today. Unfortunately, the trigger stopped resetting after the second stage. Upon inspection, it seems as though the hammer gets caught on the hook thingy. My accuracy is complete trash, but my movement speed is okay. That being said, it's real hard to gauge where I stand when the trigger doesn't work and stage times are slower than shooting bolt action. On the positive side of things, I lucked into some primers so I will most likely up my live round count this year. Current things to do: Fix GMR (screw it, just bought a Hiperfire ECL, don't want t
  11. Correct, under the special conditions of Appendix D8: SBRs are permitted provided full compliance with state and federal laws Handgun to carbine conversions are allowed as long as they meet criteria in #6 #6 says: must have stock attached
  12. Your shooting isn't what's holding you back. Heck, you're mechanically as sound as me, if not better (I don't say this just to make you feel better). Your biggest struggle and first obstacle to overcome is your mental game. In my opinion, working on mini stages for your next practice session is only delaying the great battle that you will one day have to fight. You have to train your mind to do what you want to do on demand. I had the same exact struggles when I first started out. Classifiers used to be complete garbage compared to the rest of the stages. Then I realized I could sh
  13. It was crass of me to say I could just get in by paying for a slot. For some reason I thought there were walk-on spots available like USPSA nats. The good news is that there are at least 14 out of 52 slots that are designated for individual performance regardless of division shot. So as long as a person gets enough points from USPSA and IPSC nationals, the person can shoot any division of their choice. I'd think averaging top 10 for 3 of these events is good enough to make this cutoff. Though this might be a little murky because IPSC PCC and Handgun World Shoots are different, wher
  14. Guess I have to earn my spot then. My future self can worry about that.
  15. Thanks Rowdy. I'll keep that in mind. I'll just pay for the entry and plane ticket. I got some international buddies shooting IPSC that I would visit even if there wasn't a competition. As for the PCC stuff, I think there's definitely something to be learned that would carry over to handguns. Specifically, I want to test getting rid of what I call the "second delay". The first delay is registering that my eye focus is on exactly the point I'm looking at. The second delay is registering that the dot is within acceptable precision to that focus point. I believe that shooting PCC w
