  1. The 3rd annual Arizona State Pistol Caliber Carbine Championship will be hosted by Rio Salado Sportsman's Club during the last weekend of September. The main match will be on Saturday/Sunday, plus there will be limited options to shoot the whole match in one day with the staff on Friday (if you prefer this option, please sign up even if no Friday squad slots are shown - we will consider releasing more slots as demand dictates). We are grateful to Quarter Circle 10 for stepping up as the Title Sponsor again this year. In 2019 you can look forward to the same successful formula we have brought you in previous years... your PCC skills will be tested to the max. There will be 10 challenging run-n-gun PCC-only stages, with targets ranging from 1 yard to over 100 yards. Ammo count is expected to be around 400 rounds. The generous prize table will be distributed by random draw during the match as each squad rotates through the prize/vendor demo area, and trophies will be awarded according to division participation. You can read all about the 2018 match in the April edition of Dillon Blue Press (pages 36-39). The match will be run under IMA-PCC rules (Time-Plus with Points). Equipment divisions will be as follows: • Open Division: Any semi-auto pistol caliber carbine. No other restrictions. • Limited Division: Any semi-auto pistol caliber carbine fitted with non-magnified sights only (red dots, irons and lasers OK). No bipods. • Irons Division: Any semi-auto pistol caliber carbine fitted with iron sights only (no optics or lasers). No bipods. • Modern Classic Division: Any semi-auto pistol caliber carbine based on a submachine gun designed prior to January 1st 1980. This includes popular post-war guns like the Uzi and MP5, but NOT the AR15/9. The general configuration of the firearm, including sighting system, must be reasonably faithful to the original (no optics or bipods unless original) and all magazines are limited to 30 rounds loaded. Firearms must be fitted with a shoulder stock or pistol brace. Ammunition must be 9mm or larger, and muzzle velocity may not exceed 1600fps. Registration is via PractiScore: REGISTRATION LINK. The match fee is $195 and includes a free match shirt (entries received after September 1st may not receive their choice of shirt size). Payment will be taken online during registration, and entry fees are fully refundable for any withdrawal requests received before 11pmMST on August 15th 2019. Once the match is filled, additional entrants will be placed on a wait list.
  2. That's not what the SMM3G Stealth Division rules are at all... it looks like they are running their local variation. I would encourage you to take a look at the thread I linked to above, or download the rules from the SMM3G website. Under IMA-SMM3G rules, a red dot is allowed on the shotgun (which was the original question). I folks want to have the same opportunity locally without being pushed into Open, talk to your MD and ask them to consider adopting SMM3G rules.
  3. Surprising. I own several M&Ps of varying vintages for competition use with recoil springs as light at 11lbs. All have the factory striker springs, and none have given me any such problems. No FTF. No pulling of the slide out of battery. Just dead-nuts reliability. And they points where I aim them (unlike a Glock) OP: If you are having light strikes, I suggest you check your reloads for high primers. If the gun runs with factory ammo then the problem is your reloads, not the gun.
  4. THIS I started with an SBR, but switched pretty quickly to a 16" gun for the recoil management and transitions. Even with ports, the extra length doesn't bother me... maybe it's because I am a 3-Gun God
  5. Make sure it is a legitimate SBR, not a braced pistol.
  6. I had my Gen1 CORE Quad-Ported by Mag-Na-Port. It definitely shoots flatter than the stock gun but I can't really compare with a 2-port setup. I have to run a 13lb recoil spring to get it to eject reliably. I only run MINOR power factor ammo (I built this particular pistol for outlaw 3-Gun).
  7. Here are the practical long-gun events we have scheduled this month at Rio Salado (Mesa, AZ): Black Rifle Match: Saturday March 2nd @ 9am This is an action rifle match with targets from 1 yard to 400 yards. Any semi-auto military-type rifle should work well - most of us run an AR15 of some type. You do not need to bring a handgun or shotgun. Registration and squadding on the preceding Monday at 6pm via PractiScore (sorry, no walk-up entries on the day). 3-Gun Match: Saturday March 9th @ 7:00am There will be four action shooting stages requiring rifle, pistol and/or shotgun, with targets anywhere from 1 yard to 550 yards. In preparation for SMM3G, our March match will only offer 3-Gun divisions (2-Gun will be back in April). Bring 150 rounds of rifle ammo, 50 shotgun birdshot (#6 or smaller), at least 6 00 buckshot and 4 shotgun slugs, and 50 rounds of pistol ammo. Registration and squadding on the preceding Monday at 6pm via the PractiScore (sorry, no walk-up entries on the day). After registering, the competitor will be able select from squads in one of two time slots: 7am-10:30am or 10:30am-2pm. New shooters should sign up for a 10:30am squad and come in time to attend the new shooter orientation at 10am before they shoot. Tactical .22 Rifle Match: Tuesday March 12th and 26th @ 4pm Registration opens at 4pm, with first shots shortly thereafter. Location is the Smallbore Range right behind the Activity Center. The rules are simple: Targets are reactive steel - shoot them per the stage briefing, fastest combined time (+penalties for misses) wins. Pretty much any .22 rimfire rifle is OK - the most popular guns are AR15-clones and Ruger10/22s. We have two divisions: iron sight and optical sight. Now that .22 ammo is more available, this is a match you won't want to miss. Scoring is done on paper so pre-registration is NOT required. Superstition Mountain Mystery 3-Gun Match: Friday March 22nd-24th This is the longest-running major 3-gun match in the Nation, and it filled up months ago. If you are interested in multigun, this is a great opportunity to see some of the best action shooters in the World wrestling with 11 challenging and exciting courses of fire. Spectators are welcome to watch the stages (eye and ear protection required) and to visit the large vendor exhibition hall.
  8. And folks wonder why "shooting a rifle in a pistol match"" has so much appeal... it's because these are not problems that should be solved with a pistol
  9. Spinners are great targets for PCC, but no bueno under USPSA rules (even for a dedicated PCC match). One of many reasons my PCC matches are outlaw.
  10. Can you still ghost load with one installed?
  11. There are couple of different M&P trigger bars sold by S&W - they are marked with an alphabetic character (H or S). They do seem to have slightly different profiles, so you may find one works better than another. They are available from Brownells: https://www.brownells.com/handgun-parts/trigger-group-parts/trigger-parts/triggers/m-p-trigger-bar-assembly-h--prod82853.aspx https://www.brownells.com/handgun-parts/trigger-group-parts/trigger-parts/triggers/trigger-bar-assembly-s--prod23200.aspx
  12. Awesome, thanks - just ordered from Brownells
