  1. Wow! Great price. I've got bags. It was just easier to put the gun in the sock in my shooting bag at matches. Thanks.
  2. I have been using a gun sock most of the time for years. Guess I'll start using a zippered bag.
  3. Everyone should start shooting twice at each match. If everyone is still happy, when the match eventually ends, carry on.
  4. For our local matches I will volunteer to design and setup a stage. I don't have the imagination that others do for design. Even being a single stack shooter primarily, I like to see some choices although the higher capacity shooters can make more use of having options. What I see sometimes are stages where you go to the trouble of setting up a bunch of walls, barrels, fault lines, etc. but as far as shooting the stage you might as well have used a few shooting boxes with one wall obscuring the other targets and just shot 1 target array from each box. It looks better with the walls but the shooting challenge is the same either way.
  5. Shooting single stack and had first mag and barney mag in pocket. At the beep stepped into shooting area and engaged several targets. Moving to a port, dropped mag and had 0 additional mags on belt. Normally someone would notice and give someone a heads up, but not this time.

  7. But does that include changing guns? That works for a 40. 45 shooter can't change to 10 round mags with the same gun. Is the 45 shooter allowed to change to his 9mm gun without his first gun breaking?
  8. I shot Area 1 but in single stack major. Couple of unloaded starts. Definitely some spots with no extra shots without a reload. Or when you fire #9 you're back to 8 shots. We had a couple of dqs. First one shooter came aroud the left side engaged two targets and as he moved forward fired one into the left berm. Second one was a shooter who had only shot 5 or 6 USPSA matches previously. Classifier with 3, 6 shot strings, shooting limited he didn't change mags between strings. At ulasc he racked the slide, pulled the trigger, boom. Didn't remove mag. I'll also be back up there for the state match.
  9. Except that a limited shooter isn't directly competing with a production shooter in a match. Sure we can look at the overall for fun to see where you placed against everyone. I would hope a shooter with 23 round mags would gain something over a similarly skilled shooter with 10 rounds.

    CZC TS Base Pad Help

    What I found is that in addition to trimming the wings on the mag the L shaped bracket allows the magazine spring to pop up and get wedged in with the L bracket causing it to lock up when the base pad is pushed all the way back. Even if you manage to install it without that happening, when you push the L bracket in the spring pops up around it. It's worse on mags when the springs don't stay straight and get twisted. I just got this tac sport but these mags are a pain. I had to use a rubber mallet also Any solutions or better base extendions? They might work better if the L brackets were bigger.
  11. Thanks. I am going to try some limited just for a change of pace from SS unless I end up really enjoying it. Haven't really paid that much attention to limited before. I had no idea as far as who uses thumbrests or doesn't.
  12. I have been a single stack shooter. I recently bought a CZ Tactical Sport with a thumbrest. I've only shot it a couple of times and the thumbrest feels good. Do people get thumbrests just because they are allowed and shooters look for any advantage, even if it's very little, or do shooters find a recognizable improvement with the rests? Shooting a classifier match tomorrow. I really need to get some practice in with this new gun though.
  13. On an 11 round stage a shooter with 9+1 must reload for round 11. Shooter with 10+1, no reload. How is that neutral?
  14. No. I'm not going to set up a pcc match with no pcc match experience All I said was that I won't shoot one in a standard USPSA match, but would "consider" doing it in a pcc only match. That's not the same as a pcc shooter complaining about the pcc matches he's competed in and then it's suggested he solve the problen by running a match.
  15. I would consider shooting stand alone pcc matches with added difficulty. Not interested in shooting standard USPSA matches with the carbine.
