Calls Shots

Calls Shots (8/11)

  1. Mesa, AZ - March 16-20, 2022 Superstition Mountain Mystery 3-Gun (SMM3G) 2022. Despite the name, we do also offer a 2-Gun (pistol/rifle) division option. The main match is March 18-20, there is also the option to shoot the pre-match March 16-17. Registration is open now: SMM3G 2022 match page on PractiScore.
  2. Registration for SMM3G 2022 opens October 15th. As in recent years, there will be a 1-week registration window after which match slots will be awarded by random draw using the PractiScore lottery system. For details of the match, and to register, visit the SMM3G 2022 match page on PractiScore.
  3. Both, and feedback from a friend who has a JP-5. Doesn't appear to be a particular problem provided you are diligent with your ammo loading and gaging - the roller locked system is just not as tolerant of poorer quality ammo. In contrast, a straight blowback AR tends to brute-force the ammo into the chamber in my experience, presumably due to the increased reciprocating mass.
  4. I've shot both, and a lot of other PCCs. JP-5 is flatter shooting than GMR-15 but, like my MP5, is more fussy with ammo sizing... you need to use a Lee U-die to size your reloads. Whether it's worth the $$$ vs. what you already have it is up to you. I already have a pair of PCCs built on the CMMG RDB system which perform well and IMHO are not holding me back, but if I was buying from scratch I'd seriously consider spending the extra on the JP-5 vs. other options. Still cheaper than a typical custom Limited or Open handgun setup.
  5. The area under the gas block and around the gas tube will eventually accumulate firing residue that will reduce leakage somewhat, but sealing in these areas is unnecessary - the system was designed to accommodate some leakage and still function properly. Just shoot it and troubleshoot if you have a problem.
  6. Update: The match filled almost immediately so we adjusted the shooting schedule to open up some more slots - you can shoot the match over two days (Sat/Sun) or in one day (Fri). If you are interested in shooting this match and have not entered yet, take a look at the PractiScore registration page. This match is held on the weekend before the Red Oktober - Cold War match - if you are coming to one event, you might consider staying over a week and shooting both (we have local matches during the week to keep you entertained).
  7. Update: 1) The match filled almost immediately so we adjusted the shooting schedule to open up some more slots - you still shoot the whole match in one day. If you are interested in shooting this match and have not entered yet, take a look at the new schedule on the PractiScore registration page and see if it can work for you. 2) We have updated the rules to clarify some points. You can find the latest rules at the RioMultigun website. This match is held on the weekend after the AZ State PCC match - if you are coming to one event, you might consider staying over a week and shooting both (we have local matches during the week to keep you entertained).
  8. There is a sizable cohort of USPSA shooters and officials that insist the rules be applied AS WRITTEN... no ifs, buts or maybes. This is not a problem if the rules are written well, but alas that cannot always be said about USPSA rules.
  9. By this logic, cycling the slide to clear an unextracted case or a misfired round would be a match DQ. Another example of the law of unintended consequences caused by an overly-micromanaging rules document.
  10. Unless you want to be the least popular guy at your range, please don't shoot .380ACP at a USPSA match... that damned brass causes all kinds of problems if it gets into folks' 9mm reloading process. The only person hated more is the guy with a 9x21
  11. I've always kept a healthy inventory of shotshells and have been able to keep shooting 3-gun through the late unpleasantness. However, a lot of friends were not so lucky and had to scramble to find shells. Fortunately, it seems we are past the worst of it - I have seen the Federal 100-shell packs at multiple WalMarts and at normal prices recently... I expect the shotgun drought to ease off. Of course, none of this affects the long-term trend of the shotgun falling out of favor amongst the next generation, hence the need to continue offering 2-gun as an option.
  12. I use a light application of blue Loctite + staking. To stake the nut, I use a spring-loaded center punch... easy to do, light enough dimpling to undo as needed.
  13. Question for those who attended this match: Any feedback on the format and match experience? What did you like? Any opportunities for improvement?
