  1. I was reviewing USPSA match locations in Florida for future travel opportunities. I thought there was a match in Titusville. I've been on their web page, and can only find IDPA. Was I confused? Did they have a match, and it is not gone? What's up? Thanks, Jeff
  2. If you buy 38 TJ brass instead (from Starline), the extractor groove is cut taller so the U-die can get all the way down to the groove...
  3. I really love the powder measure stop gizmo too.... wink wink
  4. Also get the new slider link thingy. It allows you to adjust the PTX bell without fussing with the whole assembly. Fits on the bolts that hold the spring, and has an adjustment screw.
  5. How do you disable your slide stop? You just file off the part of the slide stop that is lifted by the magazine follower. It still works if I manually push it up, but it now clears the magazine follower, regardless of magazine type or brand. Henning sells a replacement pin, with no thumb lever or slide stop feature. It is supposed to be stronger than the factory part.
  6. IMHO... Longer is the key to more accuracy. The longer the bullet, the more lands and grooves the bullet has in contact with the barrel producing a more consistent flight path = more accuracy. Are you implying that shorter bullets will jump the lands/grooves? If not, how exactly does a longer bullet interact with the rifiling in a more accurate manner? It can't spin faster. Does it exit the barrel crown better? Is it less damaging to the jacket during initial rotational acceleration? I seem to recall that some barrels are designed with variable twist grooves to slowly apply rotation, but I thought that was for long guns. shorter bullets leave the barrel sooner...while longer bullets is still being affected by the barrel... Really? Is that your answer? I don't even know how to reply to that...

  8. It sounds as if you are having to use excessive force. I've never had to use that much force. Even with 9mm Major, it sounds excessive. Have you tried another die? It is possible that your die was manufactured incorrectly. It might be out-of-spec.
  9. Unfortunately, a bunch of the old hippies have retired and moved north. In retirement, they have little else to do than make stupid rules and complain about stuff. The local newspapers tried to get a list of all CCW holders via Freedom Of Information Act. I think they wanted to publish them. Luckily, it didn't work. Google it.
  10. Thanks for all the advice everyone. Once my official duties are over, I'm headed to the suburbs! I had forgotten why I moved out of the big city. So far, everyone is really nice, but I'm glad I don't have to live in a big city anymore.
  11. Well, I'm sitting in San Fran, crammed into an Airbus, waiting to depart for Dallas. Plan to stay near Galleria for first week, then relocate after I get my bearings.
  12. What about up near the Galleria? Or maybe I should go out towards Grapevine. My family is coming next weekend, and we will stay at Great Wolf Lodge a couple of nights.
