  1. When I started shooting my first gun was a 45 commander with a comp .Apparentley the last round of the match was a squib. After lunch I had my wife shoot at a new target, one shot two holes on a clean target. The barsto Barrel was split from the chamber to the comp, both sides. Thankfully the slide wasn’t damaged. Unfortunately my wife decided she didn’t want to start shooting with me. It was was squib in my opinion.
  2. I started shooting when I was16 I would shoot 10 rounds after school ever day and I kept the targets to be able to see my improvement. When I got out of the Navy my brother in law and I would compete with our newly acquired Gold cups. That led to how do I stack up with every one else. So I competed in Bullseye, pistol silhouette, uspsa,3-gun, and now cowboy action. I guess I’ve always liked guns and competition.
  3. MGM it will last a life time!
  4. I love my Python, my dad bought it for me in 62. When my brother worked fo San Jose pd they had a fun match that I shot. I bought 1,000 rounds of .38 wad Cuttersi in preparation. The night before the match when I got to his home he gave me model 19 and told to try it of course it had a trigger Job and that’s the gun I used. I think that the Python is great for someone who isn’t going to compete but the Smiths are betr for competition. I killed a lot of squirrels and scared a lot more with that gun.
  5. When my brother had a range behind his house I started with a plate rack then 3 full size ipsic targets all from MGM we ended up with 2 pepper poppers and a swinger and a Texas star or what ever MGM calls it. I wouldn’t recommend the Texas star it’s too labor intensive for one person, very time consuming. Alas lost the rage it’s now a lemon grove. I bought the plate rack In ‘97 and sold it to a local club and it’s still going strong. The and plate rack and the full size ipsic targets were most beneficial.
  6. Yes 2 pistols, rifle and a shotgun A totally different game just starting..And an alias
  7. I had a stainless open gun, it wasn’t polished but a brushed finish. I kept it looking new with a 3m green pad and oil for 15 years.
  8. I live in California, there are no local matches so it’s hard to compete. I’m 74 so as the matches turned in a young mans sport. A friend got into CASA it’s a little more my speed. But I keep reading on their forum how cowboy shooting is declining and I believe it is. At least multi-gun attracts a younger group of people. The problem is the money it takes to get into and participate in The the sport. I started when I was 50, young enough to compete(not very well). But I loved it, the challenge of mastering all 3 guns and keeping them running was part of it. I’m weird shotgun was my favorite next to the rifle so I don’t get the shotgun problem but I’m old so......
  9. I cast and coat my 9mm bullets I size them to .356. I shoot them in my revolver. Glock but mostly in my PCC. I have shot approximately 10,00 through my PCC and no leading. I have a buddy that has shot the same bullets in his 9 major at major velocities and has experienced no leading. I can’t comment on any other bullet maker but I would assume their coating technique would be better than minee"
  10. Started with Proper than I went to 511 stryke the most comfortable pants I own I also wear them on trips I can carry my gun, knife and flashlight comfortably. I’m
  11. I started using electronic ear muffs after I was shooting man on man the guy on my right started shootiing for no apparent reason until I realized that I hadn’t heard the beep. I actually just quit shooting my AR15. The audiologist told me there are 12 frequencies and I can only hear 5. But I still shoot my PCC .i have no problem getting a good cheek weldwith my rifles.
  12. I had a 2011 that had that problem and changed tp federal primers problem solved (40) an extra long firing pin also helped when I went back to Winchester primers. I had some CCI primers I wanted to use up my TTI Glock didn’t like those went back to Winchester, problem solved every gun is different. I would say there is nothing wrong with your.reloading the is Glock a9mm .
