  1. Alright a new season has started. I am super stoked for 2019. 2017 was my first non-level one match (Local) where I won production B class at the Indiana Sectional. In 2018 I shot my second level II match and again got a class win at the Indiana Sectional, but this time in A class. 2018 I shot my first ever match outside Indiana and first match above a level II, the USPSA Factory Gun Nationals (Production). I was able to walk away with 6th in A class and 53rd overall out of over 240 in production. I was really excited to see that I can occasionally hang with the big dogs, I even finished 3rd on stage 11 at 96.93% of the stage winner. Also managed to beat a LOT of Ms and some GMs overall so that was cool for an A class scrub. Follow me as I train and compete throughout 2019 on my way to the 2019 Iron Sight Nationals Nov 3rd-5th.

  2. I purchased an STI Edge last about a year ago to move from Single Stack into Limited. I like the STI, but lately I've been thinking about shooting something more like my work guns. So I've been considering shooting Limited with a Glock 35 or 24. I know that this subject has probably been covered previously, but I couldn't find a thread that really laid out the pro and cons of both platforms. I see a lot of lightly modified G35s at local matches, but it seems like the pros that run Glocks prefer the G24. It also seems like most of G35s I see being used by pros have a lot of added frame weight, like SJC frame weights and such. I'm looking for the pros and cons comparison of both Glocks.
  3. Let me kickoff by just saying that BEnos has been an amazing resource that I've utilized over the years. I've learned an immense amount from the wealth of knowledge in the threads on this board, as well as in-person from many of the participating members. Additionally, I've collected my share of lumps as I've grown both in the sport and as an individual, gathering information about what works and what doesn't, "on and off the field". In my quest to better myself further and share what I've learned with others in this community, I've decided to finally go ahead and post here in the "range diary" section. Forgive the length of this first post, but I believe it's important to understanding my journey as a shooter, where I'm at today and what I hope to achieve. For starters, I'll kickoff with a history of my shooting background, and where I'm at today: I shot a firearm for the first time in 2009. Later that year, I joined the Baylor Marksmanship Association (an on-campus firearms club started by a now, close friend) and shot my first competition, a 3 gun match at Tac Pro Shooting Center. I had no quality gear, no skill and basically just flopped around like a fish out of water for the duration of the match. I can also say that it was one of the most fun experiences I've had, and I was immediately hooked on competing. Over the course 2010 I began to shoot as many 3 gun matches as I could (that meant about one a month or so), still flopping around mostly, until a friend and I discovered Magpul Dynamics. Yup, you read that correctly; the "tactical-Magpul-porn" was the first time I was able to actually understand some of the basic mechanics of recoil control and increasing shooting speed. At the same time, I was fortunate enough to meet some extremely skilled shooters (locally) who introduced me to this forum, and for all effective purposes, began to mentor me in all things related to our sport. Throughout 2011 and into 2012, I did a deep dive into understanding the best gear and parts, and shot as much as my college budget would allow, even having some moderate success with 3 gun - always in the running to win at my local area matches, and even doing decently (a relative term) at the 2 or 3 majors I had the opportunity to shoot. At the time, if I were to average/combine my shooting skills across the 3 different firearms platforms into an overall rating, my rifle would have been above my skill average, my shotgun loading would have been above my skill average with the shooting being about at my average, and my handgun would have been far below my overall average (that last part is important for where I'm at today). In the summer of 2012, I was involved in a serious accident that required some major hardware to be installed into me left leg, along with some otherwise invasive surgery. At that time, I basically hung up the shooting rig. I shot maybe 2 matches from 2012 up to 2016, mostly because friends asked me to, with a collective 200-300 additional rounds fired at an indoor range (static shooting) to practice for concealed carry or make sure the firearms were still sighted in, etc. In the summer of 2016, my wife encouraged me to begin shooting again, and I decided to start back into shooting with USPSA. I felt that my overall performance was always hampered by my ability to shoot handgun, and as such, I felt if I was going to improve, I might as well focus on this one area to start with. I got myself a production gun (CZ Shadow) and started shooting about twice a month for the remainder of 2016. At the time, I decided my #1 Goal was to make Master. I classified initially as an A in production, and at the time of posting, am sitting at about an 83% classification. At the kickoff to 2017 I decided I was going to pick up a PCC, immediately violating every reason that I had decided to go back to shoot USPSA, but come on...I love shooting rifle at things up close and with speed, so I figured I'd grab one and mess around for a bit, then go back to handgun...This picture really sums up what was going on inside my head: I made initial classification as Master on the PCC and was encouraged by many of my local match directors and coordinators to shoot some majors with the PCC in the 2017 season. Without drawing out this post, I figure that's a good place to stop. I plan to post up my AARs or Postmortems or whatever we want to call them, for the next few major matches I shot with PCC, and then link all of that information back up my ultimate goal of improving with my handgun. I appreciate any feedback you might have and look forward to utilizing this tool to keep myself honest respective to my growth and practice regimens, and again, hopefully share some knowledge with my fellow shooters.
  4. Newish to the forums! Also new to USPSA (July 2017). Just noticed that guys would do some friendly motivational challenges to race the next class. I wanted to attempt to do the same to encourage to get out and push ourselves to move up! I guess we can give it to the end of the month to see if it draws any attention. Just post a reply and put your USPSA member number in the post and I will compile them and track them monthly. We can see our progress at the end of the year. Or not....:( Robert Zuniga A104434 Production Limited
  5. I didn't know where else to ask this question, so I decided to post it here. I started my membership with USPSA a while ago, but never really shot matches due to my work schedule. I'm finally starting to get some free time, so I'm shooting more. I know I want a CZ Custom Shop Shadow variant, but I don't know at what point will I see a benefit from it in my scores. I currently shoot a bone stock Glock 34 Gen4 with Proctor Y-sights. I just shot my first classifier match and based on my scores, I'm assuming I'll be a low B or maybe a high C shooter (Scores are not up yet). My carry gun is a Glock 19 and my backup match gun is a Glock 17 that I bought 5 years ago. I like that they are inexpensive, simple, low maintenance, have a consistent trigger pull, and are quick on transitions. I don't like that the trigger requires a high amount of focus to pull without shifting the gun, and mistakes are quite unforgiving - especially while shooting one handed. I mention my carry gun because I carry at minimum 95% of the time when out and about in public, and like to be proficient with my carry gun. If I change my competition gun, I would want to change my carry gun to something with an identical manual of arms. It doesn't make sense to me to practice a ton with one system and then change to a completely different system for self defense. So if/when I do upgrade, I'll need to buy two CZ Custom Shop guns. Would I be doing myself a disservice by spending money on new firearms instead of spending that same amount of money on match experience and training?
  6. Yes i know it's only 2018.... Better early ...So we can line up our vacation days for us worker bees... Kindly Post 2019 Matches here...
  7. So interwebs I'm on my way to USPSA Nationals to shoot production A class in Oct 2018. I envision this thread to be my journal of the training and other stuff that goes with it. I've never been to a match bigger than the state championship before. And I've only been to one state championship. Stay tuned for daily progress!

  8. Just getting set up to journal my thoughts and results for upcoming matches. will include video in the future. looking forward to any advice given. thanks,
  9. Is there a way to delete inbox messages in Practiscore? If so, how? I am fairly tech savvy, it is escaping me now.
  10. Hi All, This Is my first post so please forgive me if I don't follow the forum etiquette correctly. I've been Shooting Production for about a year (14 Matches). I have been using Black Scorpion mag pouches. They worked fine but have to many screws that like to back out. I was running a Black scorpion belt but have upgraded to the very stiff DAA belt (and love it).Im now in the market for new pouches. My question is which pouches do yall recommend for Production division shooting a Glock 34? I have done some research and have narrowed it down to CR Speed, DAA Racer, and just started looking in to Ghost. I've read a few threads on here about pouches but most are focused on limited or open. The CR Speed's have the cut out for finger indexing but I see a lot of people using the Racers also. Is this something that is crucial? I'm not looking to go bullets out. Thanks in advance for Any and All advice.
  11. I am shooting an M&P 2.0 5in for primarily 3 gun and also a little USPSA production to practice for 3 gun. What should I change on my gun to shoot flatter and recoil softer while staying legal in production and still able to reliabily shoot factory ammo. Tungsten guide rod, lighter recoil spring, something else? Please note that I wont be loading lighter ammo since I can't reload where I currently live.
  12. I have cleaned up some things in my reloads to gain .40 seconds in live fire (yes, it was bad). Basically brought the gun down just enough to see the magwell while the fiber is still on the target (so I can get back to it the moment I turn the gun) and speed up the hand to get to the mag and shoot sooner rather than dwell on the target. What more can I do? The par timer at the video is set at 1.5 secs. I want to get it down another .30 seconds if I can. I realize if I want to move from "C" to "B" i need faster reloads.
  13. Hello everybody, Is there somebody from the SF area that knows if there are any shooting range (public or private) where it's possible to properly train for IPSC (or any action pistol sports like IDPA, USPSA) ? With properly I mean, private bay, possibility to place targets, use of holsters and no rate of fire restrictions. Thanks!

    Two Eyes Open

    Ok. Shooting USPSA Production Division. Keeping both eyes open I still see double vision. I see two sights and two targets. I know what sight and target to use and I really concentrate on the the front post. Just wondering if the double vision thing is normal. Thanks.
  15. So I figured I should start this as a replacement to my scattered notes on shooting, this way they are in one place. Maybe others can help or my experience can help someone else out. I will try my best to organize posts for my own and other's sake. It may very well turn into an actual diary since shooting sports have quickly become a true passion of mine.
  16. This is Jim Tan from Canada. I love IPSC/USPSA. I have been shooting matches for one year and seven months now. One year and ten months from the day I first shot a handgun. Now, I make up my mind and know I love this sport so much that I want to be the "Paper M". I want to prepare myself for world shoot 2020. In year 2018 to 2020 shooting season, I will focus on open division. I registered my USPSA membership, and will shoot some USPSA matches in US next year. So I can practice real open division shooting, not the "Open 10" division in Canada. haha! I will update my daily training info and video here, so to push myself to keep up the work and get better.
  17. I have been lurking around this section for a while so figured I'd start a diary myself. First about me. I am a 61 year old shooter that started competing in USPSA a little over 2 years ago. Prior to that I had shot bullseye a couple of decades prior but my experience had been basically rifles and hunting. In college I was part of the 3 position50 meter rimfire rifle team. Currently I am a C shooter about to make B once couple of low classifiers from early last year fall off. After last year's Nationals in Limited (53%) I figured I needed more of a regimented dry fire and private instruction to shoot sooner. At Nationals I shot 95% of points, but was woefully slow. So, I knew I needed to work on transitions and movement at the very least. Video below more or less shows my current skill level warts and all. Compared to a month ago my movement and transitions are better, but still has a lot of room for improvement. I noticed I bring the gun down while running and I need to fix that. And run faster :).
  18. Recent stage @ local match. Finally got some video (just this one stage) and would love help identifying things I can change. To start: I'm fat. Because I'm fat, I'm slow. Part of my USPSA improvement will come from weight loss - incorporating movement drills into my "workout" regimen will help lose more weight - win win. Running in tight spaces, backwards, is me at my slowest. You'll see that in the video. The stage: 32 rounds - 8 steel, 12 metric. U-shaped shooting area, starting at the front and working backwards and around. Three steel on each side, two in the middle - one forward falling, a smaller rear-falling behind it. Barrels on each side require engaging two metric on each side from the "forward" position, the rest can be engaged from a single position at the rear, but it makes sense to engage three metrics at the front on each side vs. taking them from the rear since you have to start and end on the front positions. Me: Carry Optics (C Class), 22 rounds in each mag. My performance: 49.99% overall, 74.88% in Carry Optics. 152 of 160 points in 27.48 seconds (6.1140 HF), 28A/4C/0M. 36 rounds fired (4 extra) - two picking up mikes on steel, 2 on called bad shots (1D on one of of the rear metric from a bad entry, 1C that I thought was a D on the front right metric from a bad entry). Two reloads on the move. My closest CO competitor had two mikes, was 8 seconds faster and placed much higher. Things I noticed in the video: First shot took a little longer than I'd like Six seconds to move from the front to the rear, shot to shot Three seconds to move from rear to front, shot to shot Make up shots ate time Questions: Left-to-right or right-to-left? Running backwards/holding forwards - tips/comments? Things you see I don't? Don't be brutal but don't hold back. Any drills you'd recommend - movements or dry-fire - that would affect this stage?

  24. * I am posting this here since it covers several topics and I don't want to get booted from one forum to another because of the breadth of topics * A little background first - I started shooting USPSA production about 8 years ago after I turned 18, and fell in love. I shot as many matches as I could fit into a busy college schedule. I switched over to 3 gun during grad school, and had been enjoying that since graduation. However, last July, my apartment was broken into and my 3 gun rifle and shotgun were both stolen (luckily they didn't notice my 3 week old STI DVC Limited 9mm in the range bag they rifled through), and I have only replaced the AR so far. So since then, I haven't been able to shoot 3 gun since funds have been a little tight and I was down a shotgun. Since late last year and all of this year, I have been shooting exclusively PCC in UML and falling steel matches, and have fallen in love with a gun with a red dot and only having to worry about hitting my targets, and not dealing with as much stage planning as typical 3 gun requires. I have really felt like my speeds and splits have improved dramatically, and I won my first overall match just a month ago shooting PCC. So now I have a new itch (well, not new, but reinvigorated itch) to get into USPSA Open. So here in-lies the dilemma - I miss shooting 3 gun, but I am really enjoying the red dot and fast paced world of PCC and potentially Open... So my question, and what I want to hear your opinions and thoughts on - Do I sell my DVC Limited to go towards a new 9mm Open gun, potentially the new Freedom Gunworks/CK Arms "Solution" and only shoot USPSA Open and UML PCC, or do I keep the DVC, and put a little money into a new shotgun to start shooting 3 gun again? I know the typical answer may be to do both, but that really isn't in the cards right now unfortunately, so I feel like I need help making a decision. I would love to hear any opinions, insight, or experiences you may have in this situation or something similar you have gone through. *I do reload my own ammo, so making major in Open won't be an issue. I am close to a range that has 3 gun, UML, USPSA, and steel matches once a month*
  25. I have always been a fan of the m&p line and would like to get into some competative shooting. I am military and tend to move around a bit and don't want to close the door on particular classes. Is it possible to get one pistol that can do major and minor without getting out of production or service pistol class? I have thought about a long slide m&p 40 core and dropping in a 9 barrel, but I think this maybe prohibited. Thanks for the pointers. I do reload, but 9mm bullets are more economical than 40s and I give up mag capacity.
