    So I made a very last minute decision at 1pm to shoot production today. After shooting my 1911, it sure was hard to transition back to my stock Glock 17. But the weather called for rain, and I thought I'd be better off with the plastic today. It dumped hard today. And it was just 32 hard cores that shot today in the dumping rain.

    Enjoy as I go wring out my range bag... [​IMG]

    My buddy Scott, who's very close to getting his Master classification. We both were running Glock 17's. Except I don't think I've ever seen him shoot anything in competition but this Glock 17 in as long as I've known him, and it shows with how well he drives it.

    Cool videos, as usual. :cool:

    Looked like you had a few failures in there...:o


    How does the timer differentiate from different guns firing?

    Yeah, that first stage sucked balls. I didn't seat my mag properly, so it fell out after the first shot. I was standing there, and looked and realized I didn't have a mag in there anymore. :mamoru:

    Then I totally bobble the mag change. :hs:

    I was practicing with my 1911 all week, and made a stupid decision to swap guns rite before the match.

    I would imagine it would be based on decibel level but in for answer

    Scott is fast as hell. :run:


    Looks like fun man. :big grin:

    Edit: Do y'all shoot light reloads for that?

    It's adjustable and only picks up recoil from close proximity.

    yeah, it's always fun watching Scott shoot. All the older guys we shoot with say, " Must be nice to be young! ". lol. He's a speed demon and he's always rite up there in standings.

    As for lightly tailored reloads, your not even competitive without. It's one of the best things I can do for my gun in competition. It's all about speed and getting that follow up shot. You can't do that on hot factory ammo.

    Ab I know you reload how do you pickup your brass or do you even get to?

    Or at the end of the match do they go ok you shot 120 round in .45 here is your brass and divide it among everyone?

    I have good friends. :x: I've been getting a lot of free brass lately.

    I also pick them up at indoor matches I shoot at on Wednesdays and Fridays. It's cleaner and easier to pick up.

    Rule of brass: as soon as it hits the ground it's fair game.

    That could be the only problem.

    it's really not too hard collecting brass. A couple of trips will usually do ya for a month maybe. Depends on the frequency.
