I ended up 4th in accuracy(Points down), though the three guys above me were significantly slower.

It was the first match I have shot with the RMR and G-19. If I get to another match this year, maybe I can increase the speed a bit. Definitely helps to wait until full presentation to look for the dot.

1 of 4 stages, I shot this past weekend @ a local IDPA match. I was using my carry G29 w/RMR. I'm not shooting my nuclear carry loads. Bumped down from a 23lb recoil spring to a 15lb. Placed 5th Overall w/58 shooters. Least points down (3).

Still things I'm learning that are a little different than w/irons. Like, shooting weak hand & lining up w/your weak side eye. Or having to shoot a very tight angle & the pistol is @ or near a 90 degree angle around some form of cover.


Good shooting

Sorry, it wasn't my work. I just shelled out the cash for it. Local shop in my AO did it for me. They are an Agency Arms dealer and have a nice machine shop. They did my RMR cut on my G35 a few years ago.

I've used a soldering iron to stipple, holes were too big, what did you use?

I pay attention when you post the videos. Great stuff.

I am trying not to create any training scars/bad habits with the "Action Pistol", IDPA was a bit better as it penalized dumb stuff.

I need to dry fire more. I've been trying to get in a few(50 or more) reps every night.

I had missed your post from the other day about the gear you were using.

After watching the glockcqc video. I wonder why a race-holster would make any real difference?

Nice Vid glockcqc!

I can keep my first shot from concealment under 1.5 if I have been practicing. Guys with race rigs are consistently under a second from "beep" to "bang",typically the gun is held by gravity on a peg that is 1/4-1/2" long in the barrel, slight rise and they are sweeping it up, where a carry holster requires you to draw the gun up out of the holster, up 3-5 inches before you can start sweeping it forward. Between the rise and clearing a cover garment you add the .5 second, which in IPSC is a ton of time over the course of a match 6-8 stages (or more) and you are starting with a 3-4 second deficit before the first shot is fired.

Roger. . . .IPSC. . Not sure how a race rig figures into the *P* component of that acronym.

This must be what a certain LTC has been on my case about.

Yeah, it's a gamer thing more than a "solid tactics and try not to get shot because that shit hurts" thing.

Concur; though, what it is now (ie IPSC/USPSA) is not what Jeff Cooper had intended. Essentially, why he left...& why Larry Vickers, Bill Wilson & a couple other guys came up w/IDPA.

But, one can learn some very important "practical" skills in USPSA: planning, positioning, footwork and the importance of time.

Being a master "practical" pistol guy (ie DOD/JSOC, HRT, SWAT, etc) is not going to make you a master USPSA or IDPA shooter. But, being/striving to be a GM/master USPSA/IDPA shooter is going to make you a better "practical" pistol guy.

No intention to hi-jack the thread:)

Good shooting

Get the "battle scars" thing. USPSA, not uncommon to "minimize" your slide lock lever to almost nothing. As, you never want to do a slide lock reload or w/a high back strap grip, activate the slide lock.

IDPA..can have you do dumb stuff also Really, depends on the people that come up w/the Course of Fire design.

W/a red-dot, you catch ALL that movement that you didn't see w/irons. Dry fire is a good thing.


Good shooting

I hate being required to fire while moving backwards. Huge pet peeve of mine.

I've never liked when people shoot automatic weapons at me. Huge pet peeve of mine. On occasion, I've shot back at them while moving backwards. Not my favorite thing, either, but, a good skill to develop and maintain.

Yes it is I usually do X amount of rounds forward. Mag change and fire while moving backwards.

Nothing. I dropped it off on Thursday and picked it back up on Tuesday. The gun shop did all the work. I looked at several different grip textures before settling on that one. I wanted it less aggressive since its my daily carry rig. Some stippling will quickly wear holes in your clothes. The last time i tried it on my own i burned holes through the grip of a G27.

That sucks.

As I've said before, I never do myself what I can hire a professional to do correctly.

My philosophy with home improvement. I'd rather work overtime and pay somebody to do it right and in a reasonable amount of time.

It can still be fun; when, you shoot well (HA)

Pro-am matches is where it evens out a little more. COFs looks a lot like some of the steel set-ups you have set up. Limited to 10rds in the mag. So, you can catch them If you can hit the steel & they have 1-2 misses.

Have done that several times, w/my G29 comp/RMR w/a Galco Yaqui holster.


Good shooting
