Looks for Range

Looks for Range (1/11)

  1. If you are in Indy, Rafferty Custom is in Martinsville. Do a little research on here and you will be able to find some of his work.
  2. Those two jobs, while not mutually exclusive, have different authority and responsibilities during a match.
  3. The original person that stopped the shooter was the MD (7.1.7)? Or was it the RM?
  4. That is one of Derek's Steel Challenge models. His major PF guns usually will not have cuts all the way through the slide. Derek build a very good gun. Rick
  5. Sky Customs is located in north central KY.
  6. The quality seems to be the same, I have a Sig Romeo on my Pro SX. The glass is as good if not better than the Romeo. Dot is sharp and bright with more adjustment. Really prefer the "shake awake" feature with FTP. Just ordered two of FTP Alpha 3 during the sale. I will be changing my guns to FTP. I don't shoot much open anymore and was able to pick up the dot much more easily with the FTP. Weird angles and SH/WH the dot is easy to find compared to the Romeo.
  7. We have them on all three of my wives Brazos Pro SX. She had been using RTS2 6 moa. Currently has about 12 matches and twice that many practice sessions on her primary gun. Zero issues so far. Still on the first battery in all three units. Do you have any specific concerns? PS, the shipments from FastToys arrived 3-5 days ahead of their estimate.
  8. Shmella is correct about VV N320, unless you are using it for Steel Challenge. In the VV powders with the BE comp you will be wanting 3N37, 3N38, or N105. Your parts list looks good. You can check with the Brazos on the 1911 store for the slide.
  9. One thing that hasn't been mentioned is your pre-stage routine. Visualization will help with your "skittishness". When you are the in the hole shooter, start your stage visualization process. The more precise and vivid your images the better. Be very specific with the draw, see/feel the gun come out of the holster cleanly. Finger off the trigger, thumb on safety, safety still engaged until you are ready to place your first shot. See the first shot go exactly were you want it on the first target. If there's movement before the first shot, again be very precise in the steps before the shot. Repeat for every target and array for the entire stage. If you have already run the stage 5, 6, 10 or 15 times in your head. It will help calm the anxiety. Pick an experienced squad if you can. Have a great time returning to the sport and good luck.
  10. Big Guy, whoever mounted the scope probably used Loctite. You will need to heat the screws to get the Loctite to break loose. The two safest methods are to use a clean soldering iron placed on the bottom of the screw until the screw is hot. Or to heat an Allen key and place in the screw/bolt until it is hot. The heat will help break down the Loctite enough to get the key to break loose.
  11. I recently picked up a couple of thousand 9mm and 40SW. Mid South shooters supply had it on sale at a really reasonable price for new brass. Going to load some today and chrono. Rick
  12. Fast Grip, good enough for Grauffel. Less of the white residue than Pro Grip.
  13. I have an RMR 07 6.5 dot. Was on a 34 mos for one club match. If you are interested let me know.
