Finally read the FAQs

Finally read the FAQs (3/11)

  1. i realize I'm a couple weeks late here but I recently bought a gun that comes with the DAA shielded safeties and the width is great for my not-big hands. Makes a difference.
  2. I've read a thread in this forum about a good experience/review of the Brazos shortblock. Interested me when I was researching my initial Open gun purchase. Read here Thoughts on Brazos Custom Open Short Block - Open Pistols - Brian Enos's Forums... Maku mozo!
  3. this is probably a great suggestion. The only thing is that when the OP says he "is a bit of a gear nut, and a trigger snob" will the S2 with its DA/SA trigger be good enough for him and will he be satisfied gear-wise with a production pistol with a RDS on the slide?
  4. I recently bought an Open gun after researching/figuring out/sorting through what I’d think I like. Based on your criteria, I think you may find the $2000 price to be the limiting factor. The list I came up with was Czechmate at $3200, Bul UR at $3600 (polymer grip), then $5000+ for the rest. 9mm TSO is $1750+ $100 for CZC mount+ your SRO that you already have.
  5. That is a really good looking gun. Also cool how they figured out how to angle the mount to position the lens so close to top of slide
  6. that makes sense to me.
  7. I can understand your position. Although, this sounds like a beef with uspsa leadership, and not so much people who shoot uspsa. And remember, you were a uspsa "noob" at one time too.
  8. I haven't been around long enough to understand what you are saying here. I obviously get the band-aid reference but what division is headed where?
  9. i understand your thought process but I don't think that is the solution. Someone more experienced/knowledgeable than me maybe could chime in here, but I think the reasons 9mm Limited major would be a difficult sell are: 1) the high-pressures of the round would make it a higher recoiling round than 40 in a Limited gun (a division that doesn't allow compensators), so that would effectively be a disadvantage rather than an advantage 2) Seems like all the guns we are thinking of when discussing shooting Limited with 9mm are not built to handle 9mm major, so that would not advance the idea of having people shoot something they already have/is already popular 3) Factory-made 9mm major is in short supply, which means many of those who shoot the caliber resort to reloading, which then presents another hurdle for the type of person we are talking about here
  10. Reading the above, I think you and I share the same extreme disappointment in what is happening in some LE agencies (I merely have an outsider's view, and I think you probably have a much better finger on the pulse of it). To clarify my position a bit, I am not advocating for yet another 9mm-focused division. I saw this thread as a discussion on the popularity of Limited minor and am thinking through how it's popularity could be increased. I rotate shooting guns in uspsa based on what I feel like shooting at the time and haven't considered minor/major yet even as I know doing so doesn't help me in terms of classification or "moving up" in the sport. The sport is just so fun and I really like being around the people. And, to be honest, it is a little intimidating to be a uspsa newbie.
  11. No, I don't think many would suggest that--based on price alone, I think we can rule that out. But there is actual data behind the record numbers of women and millenials purchasing guns in the past year. Limited minor seems to be a great fit to shoot 9mm + guns with >10 mag capacity + iron sights. Would be great to attract people who could experience the fun of shooting in a much more dynamic setting than the static, slow-fire range.
  12. Seems that single action 9mms are perfect for Limited minor. All those double-stack 1911s/2011s that are super fun to shoot in 9mm (and seem to me to be really popular) should be a natural fit. And at the rate that women and millenials have been buying guns this past year, as some of them get interested in shooting sports, then (I'm secretly hoping) more may shoot in the division.
  13. I shoot Limited minor with my CZ TS2 and love it. I'm new to uspsa and am just excited to shoot a gun i really like. I also shoot a Bul SAS II in 40 for major but the minor/major scoring thing takes a backseat right now to the fun i'm having shooting guns I like. And I suspect there may be other women like me.
  14. I definitely need more practice and more reps here for what you suggest.
