  1. I'm wondering what your guy's opinion is on the schools of thought behind this. As far as Inward Should Pressure goes, specifically what I'm talking about, is in addition to canting and locking your left wrist, and clamping hard with your support hand, you clamp your hands inward (Hold your hands out where your gun would be, but hold them together as if you were clapping. Now try to push them together as much as possible, this is the pressure I'm talking about). The only shooter I've found who mentions this mentality when gripping the gun is Bob Vogel. (Multiple videos of him mention
  2. For those of you who use a Mantisx for your live fire, what kind of numbers are you throwing up for the recoilmeter? I'm trying to find a goal to aim for (no pun intended) much like the par times in Ben Stoeger's dry fire program, but haven't found any out there. If you train with a mantisx, use its recoilmeter, and are willing to share your numbers, I'd love to hear what you're putting up for recovery time, muzzle rise, recoil width, and recoil angle. I'm shooting a CZ Shadow 2 using Federal 147 ammo. Thanks in advance. Jeff
  3. So... got a bunch of stuff from Ben Stoeger for my new Stock 2. Amongst which was a 9# wolff recoil spring. Got the standard full slide version. And when this recoil spring is in the gun the rounds won't go into battery. Slide just won't close completely. Switch back to the stock spring and closes up just fine. It's like 2 or 3 coils longer than the stock spring and my understanding is it's SUPPOSED to be that way(?). I'm tempted to cut it tho and see if that fixes the problem. Should I snip snip or try to send it back to Ben?
  4. I'm currently at a block in my shooting, caused by an inability to have the sights return to target automatically after recoil without any input from myself. This is crucial to shooting good split times. When I shoot, the gun usually ends up tilted upwards slightly. I use a standard thumbs forwards grip. My grip strength is pretty weak, I struggle to close a #1 CoC gripper, and that's something I'm working on. However, to my knowledge, having the gun recoil back on target has little to do with the strength of the grip, but rather how the gun is gripped. I use a CZ Shadow, which is
  5. Someone in r/CCW was having issues with their grip & recoil control so I made this video to help people, who may have more issues with that, than me currently. I've actually had only 2 live fire practice sessions, that focused on the grip and allowed me to improve the recoil control. So if anything is incredibly stupid in this vid - I would be glad to eat dirt and listen to your advice (don't be fooled by the tone of the video, I only look like a douche, I can listen, I promise, plz bb =) ) Ammo used in live fire is 180gr 1020fps Winchester LEO .40 s&w "purple brass" Handgun:
  6. I am new-ish to the tanfo platform and I am having great success with it. Shot with a Shadow 2 most of this season and I am currently shooting the Tanfo. I was able to put 600 rounds in 3 range visit and I am blown away by the difference in between the two platforms, very happy with the Stock 2. I have purchased a few shock buffers for this pistol, and I tried it with and with out and I could not notice any difference in felt recoil, however, the action becomes stiffer when the buffer is in, like if there was less wiggle room between the barrel and the slide when out of batt
  7. I’m a beginner in USPSA Production (3 months into it) and have been seeking ways to achieve more competitive performance from my tools. Felt recoil seems to be the greatest obstacle to split times. Muzzle energy created by the acceleration of the bullet is the positive contributor to felt recoil. There are lots of negative (reducing) contributors: gun weight, recoil spring, gas venting, etc. There is a great thread on modifications for some of those negative contributors here: I decided to take a closer look at muzzle energy (foot pounds of force or Joules) with the hopes to
  8. Does frame weight really affect recoil control? I posted this video testing it with my different production guns to see. Maybe results are different with a 40/38sc. What am I missing here? It doesn't seem to, IMO. What are other ways to test it? Testing the difference between a CZ 75B vs. CZ SP01 Shadow Custom vs. CZ AccuShadow
  9. How many out there have experimented with different weighted recoil springs in the M&P? Recently I purchased a 5" Tungsten un-captured guide rod, a 17#, 15#, 13# and an 11# recoil spring to go in the 9L pro (non-ported) and the 9L PC CORE. Went to shoot those tonight and was a little let down that magic didn't happen...not really but was hoping to see some improvements for follow up shots. Here is what I did learn; 9L (non-ported) 11# spring too light 13# spring too light 15# spring worked real nice 17# (factory weight) felt the same but with less muzzle rise, more than likely to do with
  10. Hi All, We've redesigned our Glock Compensators to have an angled front wall in the first port, making the comp even more efficient. So to promote these, we're running a 20% OFF sale! Our compensators still follow the profile of the slide, with serrations that match the rear of the slide. (Pardon my photography skills.....) To say thank you to all BE members, ADDITIONAL $5.00 OFF on all orders through the end of the month. Just use Coupon Code BRIANENOS at checkout. Thanks, jager
  11. After experimenting for a while with different lightened BCGs- and buffers, the time has come to the buffer spring. My experience comes from tuning open pistols. In a pistol there is no doubt that a lighter recoil spring helps a lot when it comes to make it shoot softer. This might seem counterintuitive sins a lighter spring will make the pistol open earlier and speed up the slide movement. I think, and many others do too, that the effect comes from the fact that the pistol will close softer and hence make the dot bounce less. Last time when I was on the range I thought about how light the re
  12. I shot an informal comparison of 4 limited guns at the range yesterday. I shot a pretty standard load of 180s with WST, recorded it at 240 FPS and slowed it down to 30fps for the YouTube upload. In the stroke thread lots of people said they wanted to shoot 2 identical guns, one stroked, the other not stroked. I essentially did that with two guns that were nearly identical. The guns were was follows, in order of appearance: An Edge style 5" gun built by Will O'Hara. My custom 6" titanium tracker finished by Glenn at Lone Star Innovations. A 5", butler cut sight tracker built by Jimmy Vi
  13. Hi Guys, I've made a few more guide rods: Gen. 4 for the G20, G21 and G41, and also a "Heavy" rod for the G34, G35, G20, G21 and G41. The "Heavy" rod is a larger diameter to add some weight, and will only run the Wolff springs (not ISMI or stock). I'm a Stage Sponsor again this year at the Area 7, and for the first time in too many years I'm actually going to shoot! Thanks for your continued support, I'm always trying to keep everything in stock and we're in good shape now. Oh, and FREE SHIPPING when you order between 7/4 and 7/11 if you use coupon code FREEDOM Thanks, Billy
  14. My search ability is failing me, I'm sure this is somewhere but I can find it. I want to build a rig to test spring recoil weights for Glocks and M&P but need to know what lengths they need to be tested at. Thanks in advance for the help y'all.

  16. I am trying to develop some reduced recoil loads for 3 gun. Unfortunately it’s still hard to come buy some of the more popular pistol powders so my selection is limited. I have on hand Silhouette, Accurate No. 5, Power Pistol, and CFE Pistol. I would love to find some NV320 or 231. I am using 180 JHP Montana gold bullets. Looking through several different loading manuals all of the minimum loads are still close to major PF velocities. I see several threads on here where people are loading up to 1 grain under the minimum recommended level. Is this safe? Can i start a minimum and back it of .1 t
  17. Hi everyone, I’m a newbie here but have been lurking on the forum for a few months trying to gather tips whenever, wherever I can. I just finished Brian’s book and to say I am inspired would be a tremendous understatement. Who would have thought the concepts, ideas and strategies he thought up 20+ years ago would still be just as relevant as they are today! (Thank you again, Brian) So on to my latest road block - Shooting groups from 18-25+ yards-freehand(I mean standing with both hands).Before you all beat me up too bad - I am following the steps as have been outlined by the master - started
