I ran into some issues this past weekend shooting the idpa patriot tier 2 match when it came to stowing magazines as part of the course of fire. I was shooting an officer frame 1911 and had trouble picking up the single stack mags and stowing them in my single stack mag pouch. Now if I had a well on my mag pouch like I do on my gun things could have been a little easier and faster. Does anyone know of a company that makes flared single stack magazine pouches? I know I could get some kydex and make my own but would prefer just to order one instead. or does anyone stow the mags somewhere else instead of in your mag pouch?
Practical Pistol Reloaded is a straightforward, no-nonsense instructional book on pistol shooting, specifically – practical pistol competition shooting. Its take-no prisoners style holds nothing back, and eliminates any guess-work related to which techniques work and which ones are outdated.
The best way to shoot is using the Isosceles Stance, fact or myth? What about the press-out technique?
According to Professor Roger H. Lincoln, there are two rules for success in life: 1. Never tell everything you know. 2. Never tell everything all at once. In this book, Ben Stoeger laughs in the face of this great entrepreneur. Top shooters share a common knowledge which they have collected over the years from a plethora of sources. A knowledge that, in its whole, is far from common to the average shooter in that it is scattered.
In this book, top shooters such as Bob Vogel, Dave Sevigny, and Matt Mink collaborate with the author, Ben Stoeger, to compile the so-called “Grand Master secrets” into one location. The knowledge spans from marksmanship fundamentals to shooting on the move, and competition skills such as stage breakdown and managing match pressure. Finally, this book contains many tips, drills, and exercises to help you improve your shooting.
This book answers the “how to” questions about shooting technique. How do you hold the gun? How do you shoot fast? These questions and many more are answered inside. This material is geared for the USPSA, IPSC, or IDPA action shooting competitor.
This is the revision to Ben Stoeger’s book “Practical Pistol”. This new edition is revised to reflect technique changes that have taken place over the last few years. The sport of Practical Shooting is changing quickly and becoming more competitive every day. This updated version of “Practical Pistol” is a must have for any serious USPSA or IDPA shooter.
I went back to 2010 and didn't see a dedicated holster thread. Holster designs have always fascinated me. Classic leatherwork to modern race rigs, lets see some holsters and mag pouches you've run over the years. I'll get some pics of some of my gear later tonight.
Looks like from the new IDPA rules you may run your mag pouches a little further forward. The old rule: "Be worn in a belt location that will position the front edge of the carrier behind the centerline of the body." The new rule: "Magazine carriers must be worn in a belt location where the front edge of the carrier or magazine is behind the shooter’s anterior superior iliac spine (hipbone)." I know my hipbone is farther forward than the centerline of my body. Anyone notice this rule change? Sure makes going to that first mag a little easier.
I ordered one 1911 shim for my CR Speed Versa mag pouch from Shooters Connection and love it. I wanted 4 more but they were out so I ordered 4 from Powerfactor Shooting thinking they probably were the same source. What was odd was that the Powerfactor shims came with shims to shim the shims. Maybe they ordered the wrong thickness nylon stock and are trying to get rid of it, but when I ordered 1911 shims I assumed they would fit a standard 1911 mag. Their advertizement for the shims doesn't give any indication that the shims are not the right thickness and have to be shimmed some more. Even the holes are not centered. When I tried to match up the shims with the supplied shim shims, the holes don't line up and the edges don't line up. I emailed Sean Gaines at powerfactor but no response. Has anyone else had any experience with this brand of shims? I'm astounded at the amaturish workmanship, false representation, and then lack of response by the company.
