  1. XDm shooter here going to try the Dark Side. I may be assimilated... Sooo, last year I volunteered to RO our local GSSF match. I was persuaded to borrow a buddies G19 and shoot the match as well. This year, same and I found out by being a second year GSSF member, I qualify for the discount program. Since I haven't been able to win a gun outright, thought it gets a gun into the cheap enough range to get one for giggles (and not hassle my buddy every June). At first, though I'd just go for the Gen 3 G17 as it's the cheapest on the list (I've found my buddies 19 a bit too small for my fat hands). Also thinking I might return to Production again and see what I can do with a stock "duty" type gun. But then again, Carry Optics is on my "itch to scratch" list so maybe I'll go for an MOS to put a dot on. THEN, I see on here a lot of chatter about using a G 34 MOS for CO. Can someone explain why you'd need a longer barrel in CO where sight radius is not a factor. BTW, I did get to shoot a G35 (iron sight) with an Apex trigger and it was very nice. Thanks in advance for any input.
  2. I'm needing to set up a second pistol for 3 gun and I have a G17 that currently has no purpose. I'm thinking of starting to slowly build it up for 3 gun and one thing that I like about my current pistol is it has a longer sight radius. Would a Taylor Freelance barrel shroud not be legal under any of the larger 3 gun match rule sets? I shoot limited and don't plan on any other division anytime soon. As far as why, to set it up with sights, trigger, barrel, and shroud I'd have about $140 more in the pistol than the price of a stock G34. Also I think it looks cool and why not unless I can't shoot it and remain in limited division. For now it can be narrowed down to this rule from RM3G, (bold added by me)- 6. Limited Classes a. Firearms must be of factory configuration. b. Pistols with custom or factory installed electronic sights, optical sights, extended sights, compensators or barrel porting are NOT allowed in this class. Pistol magazines shall not exceed 170mm overall length for single stacks, and shall not exceed 140mm OAL for staggered magazines. Does it violate factory configuration or count as an extended sight?
  3. Personally, I love the 1911/2011. So it was hard for me to take this step (I feel like this is some sort of confessional)......buying a glock. I got a Glock 17 on the blue label program and thought it was too good of a deal to pass up. Anyway, now to find some time to shoot it and maybe I can give the GSSF a try (assuming the boss(aka wife)) lets me.

    G17 into G19L

    Here's my new toy from Santa. And it's about to go visit the plastic surgeon. I've been carrying a G19 Gen4 for a while now, and its pretty good. So now I want a G19L. A little in-progress picture. Choppy chop.
  6. I am an IDPA (6 matches) and a 3 Gun (3 matches) shooter. I'd like to try USPSA and SCSA shooting. I own a G17, G34 and a Para Pro Custon 14.45. The Glocks both have had the finger grooves removed and the grips textured, iron sights on the G34, Fast Fire III on the G17, the Para is stock. I shoot ESP in IDPA and Tac Ops(34) and Open division(17) in 3 Gun. What divisions could I shoot and with which weapons in USPSA & SCSA? I have tried the search function and could not find an answer. I'm pretty clear on the Glock's (Limited for the 34 & open for the 17?) but don't know what the Para is considered? At this time I do not reload but will be up and running by the end of the summer. I'm 53 no kids, divorced with a good job so spending some $ to get to the right division is not a big issue (please don't tell me to buy an STI, I can afford one but I'd only embarass myself worse missing with it...LOL) Thank you for any help you can provide.
