Hello from damn near Canada

Recommended Posts

Hey guys!  This being my first post let me introduce myself. 

 

I just started shooting USPSA in May of this year and have decided to make it my discipline of choice.  I literally just got a USPSA membership last week after shooting a handful of matches so I haven't classified yet, but I think it will be a C or honestly D classification.  My goal is to finish out the year and come next year get an A qualification. 

 

I am excited to see myself improve as time goes on and I put in the hard work with dry fire practice 3-4 times  week and live fire 2-3 times a week.  I live way out in the country with some pretty awesome neighbors so I have my own range.  Which is great for practice, but hard on the wallet. 

 

Right now I am shooting Open Minor with a "fauxland special" Glock 19 and plan to continue shooting in that class as that's what I carry.

 

Looking forward to getting some great advice and starting a training diary to keep me accountable for my training regime.

 

Thanks!

Welcome aboard, from "damn near Cuba"    :) 

 

If you want to get to A next year, get an STI, a reloading setup,

and start reloading 9mm MAJOR, instead of minor.

 

Your training is way better than mine, BTW     :cheers:

Funny story I just worked up a 9 Major load with CFE pistol this morning.  It shot reasonably softly with the Agency 417 comp.  I used small rifle primers after some advice from a reloading friend and those seemed to hold up a little better than the Federal SPP that I was using before with this load.  124's at 1400fps is enough to make Major I think.  I was a little concerned about the ejector mark on the case head but it's not indented severely and the primers still had some shape to them.

1400 FPS with 124 Gr ammo is 173 PF so that’s more than enough for major. I load CFE pistol for 9 major and use CCI small rifle primer.

If you dry fire 3-4 times & live fire 2 - 3 times a week you will make A class with any gun. One piece of advice if you don't have them already is get some dry fire/live fire books and a shot timer. The books are (in my opinion) the best bang for your buck for improvement.
