  1. Check the brand of brass you are using. If the pocket is crimped it may be hanging you up. Like chevrofreak mentioned using the 650 will be much easier
  2. I’m in the same boat as most. After messing with glasses prescribed from my eye doctor and using mono vision contacts I finally talked to the fine folks at Decot Glasses. Was sort of hesitant at first getting a pair of glasses ( 3 inserts) for shooting only. Sure wish I would of contacted them years ago. Worth the money if you shoot allot.
  3. I'm basically in the same boat as the RP. After back surgery, I stretch throughout the day. I'm terrible about taking medication but am not shy taking 800 mg of ibprohin before a match. Depending on the terrain, I try to wear the right shoes.
  4. When my D-Wipes start to dry out, I add a little bit of rubbing alcohol to the container. Seems to rejuvenate the contents.
  5. Just picked up Winchester primers at a gun show. To get rebate you have to go on Winchester web site and full out rebate form. You have to send them original reciept, rebate form and UPC code on box. Said it takes 4 to 6 weeks to get.
  6. Agree with OPENB. I had The same issue last year at NAZC. Fortunately there was some folks from Dillon shooting the match. They told me to check the tension in the spring plus make sure the collar wasn't cracked. Sure enough the collar was cracked. Replaced it as well as the spring and nut. Solved my problem
  7. I got the .356 diameter. My OAC is 1.131. Using 3.4 gr of titegroup. Shot another 100 rounds in a plate rack Tuesday. Going to shoot a USPSA match Sunday using them.
  8. I just ran 20 rounds of the Brazos 125 gr 9mms bullet thru my Shadow 2 this afternoon. Accuracy was outstanding. Just placed another order with them.
  9. Jimmy at 1911 Speed Shop is my choice. Work is fast and quality is outstanding. I agree with having it appraised before ! I chopped it up
  10. Like CHA-LEE mentioned above. I have now shot 4 matches using Decot glasses. No distortion at all. Before when ROing a stage it was difficult to see 9mms holes from a distance. Now there is no problem seeing them. And in a plus side if you have flex credit they will reimburse you.
  11. I've purchased 3 guns from Brazos. They all run like a charm. Years ago I did have an issue with my Limited Gun 3 weeks before nationals. Contacted Bob about the issue. He paid for the freight both ways being shipped and had it back to me within 5 days. To me, service like that is worth the extra money. I wouldn't hesitate getting a few more from them.
  12. Shot a match today using my new Decot glasses. 1st impression is why didn't I purchase these years ago. Took their advise and wore the glasses 30 minutes before hammer down. Good advice. Front sight was clear as could be. The wrap around ear arm really didn't bother me. Tried using the side protectors on the temples but that bugged the crap out of me so I didn't use them. Overall extremely happy with the purchase.
  13. I have been looking at the Decot Glasses now for a few years. I spoke with Robert at Area 2 last year and was very impressed. Read CHA-LEE's post about his purchase from them and decided to purchase a pair. I have tried all the top manufacturers for my prescription in the past and nothing has worked so far. Going to match Saturday and going to try them out. I always wear contacts so this will be a first. I'll update my impression (Good-Bad or both) of them after the match. stay tuned.
  14. I shot with Tiger this year at Area 2. Real nice guy. Wasn't shy about letting you handle his gun in the safe area. His mount is solid
  15. Just purchased a new S2. Buddy of mine strongly recommended the Patriot Defense base pads. I'll be getting 6 of them friday.
