Carry Optics is really popular

Hmm, I remember when I took heat with a VERY small number of other guys for getting Production Optics (now called Carry Optics) started.

Glad you are all enjoying it.

 

‘That ‘Production Optics’ thread was a monster... good times.

 You and I took some heat, but it was all worth it

Shooting my first match in CO division tmw.  I put together a G17 with a Burris FF3.  Looks like fun so, of course, I have to give it a try.

How long did it take you to adjust to CO from iron sights?

A week of dry firing for 30+ minutes everyday should get you to servicable.

Thanks! I’m looking to get a G17 mos. CO is gaining fast in USPSA from what I’ve seen in my area matches.

Just got the tungsten grip module for my X5 last week so I’ll be shooting CO too. There’s no way I’m going back to iron sights with my vision going worse as the day goes by. I use mono vision glasses when shooting with iron sights but there’s no comparison to shooting with a red dot. I had been dry firing every night to get use to seeing the dot so I don’t have to hunt it during the draw.

Still adjusting. I have shot one USPSA match and one Steel Challenge match in CO. I have learned that I need more dry fire and live fire practice and a larger dot. I do okay with finding the dot but there is some hunting for it and the 3 MOA dot that I have is difficult to see and to track.

So....CO is a gateway drug that leads to Open...

 

Not necessarily.  I'd never want to shoot a gun that I wouldn't carry in real life.

I understand that position but at some point your desire to have fun with a really cool gun might take over.

The guys that are competitive in CO are shooting a configuration few would ever realistically carry

What do you mean my nitrofin isn’t made for carry?

Haha, I'm sure someone here will proudly let us know that not only is it meant for carry, but they use it on their carry gun, and you are a fool to think otherwise.

When all the talk of CO first started... I thought Oh ya, I'm in - bought an M&P CORE. Yay! but the rules say no comp'd barrels😖, so in went the APEX barrel, put a Vortex Viper on an was ready to rip, then the rules shifted to allowing mag extensions, so I got those🤑. After all that and shooting 6-8 matches I just couldn't learn to love it; the trigger sucked and I was much faster with my limited guns.

Flip-flopped back and forth about dumping it and thought "I shouda just bought a 2011 open gun", well I've concluded if I'm in for a penny, I'm in for the pound bought a new APEX forward sear flat trigger for it this week and if that doesn't make me a fan, well I'll keep it until I can't see the irons on my limited racers anymore; blow the dust off and shoot for fun.
