Who has made the switch - from open to limited and vice aversa??


Recommended Posts

Eye aches from trying to focus on the front sight forced me out of Limited.  I now shoot Open.  A retina problem means there is no chance of ever going back.  Brcause of that, every pistol I own wears a dot.

Hello, I just shoot one till I get bored and then try something else. So far this year I have shot Open, Limited and Carry Optics. Next maybe PCC or Single Stack. It is fun for me to use a red dot and then iron sights. I do find shooting Open has made me a better Limited shooter. Thanks, Eric

I went from Limited to Open a couple of years ago.....Old eyes were my driving force...really glad I did..optics will extend my ability to shoot for a longer period of time and the bonus I no longer wear corrective lenses to shoot pistol and optic rifle...Other than mechanical problems ...Open is a blast....

I went from when everybody shot a 1911 .45 single stack to Open (Also a 1911 Single stack with a comp).  Did Limited followed by Limited 10, just for fun got classified in Revolver.  Left USPSA for 3-Gun.  Bought a PCC and discovered I could shoot it in USPSA.  Got a B classification in PCC.  Recently shot Production  twice and decided it sucked.  Just shot my first Carry Optic match. As you might guess, I'm a veteran Super Senior.

I started in limited and found out that my eyes were just too old. Switched to carry optic and have been doing a lot better. We have a weekly steel match here and thought I would try shooting the other divisions. I have a corrective insert for my eyeware that has distance in the left eye and the right eye is set for the front sight. After shooting carry optic for over a year I was very surprised that I was able to make the transition to production, then to limited-10. Not sure if I’m going to limited than open but I was able to train my 62 year old eyes to see my front sight and target. In USPSA Im a “B” in carry optic and production and “C” in Open and PCC and a “D” in limited. There’s a thread about shielding the red dot or front sight from your right eye and using both eyes to make target transitions.

I went from Limited to Open about 30 years ago when the first Aimpoints became available for pistols.  It really improved my shooting.  I still had my Limited gun and decided to shoot it on action.  I'd shoot both guns at some matches using Open first.  Over the years I've learned that I shoot my Limited gun much better now since I've learned how important it was to concentrate on the sight.

 

I made Master in ICORE with both guns.  One balances the other and you will get better by shooting both.
