GUN USPSA Here I Come

Discussion in 'On Topic' started by Market Garden, Aug 12, 2008.

  1. Thanks to AB13 for opening my eyes to the sweet world of USPSA. The day after my first USPSA match I ordered the CR Speed belt and mag pouches. I came across a good deal on some 47T mags (thanks for not snapping them up AB) and now I'm almost complete with all my gear!

    Sweeeeet dude. You picking up that Safariland 012 from me?

    We had a good match last Sunday, USPSA weekend after next. You can also shoot Marysville this Sunday.

    I sent my broken 47T's back to Wilson and they are sending me all new 47T's.

    200$ around your waist, and that's only the mag pouches and belt. Welcome to my heaven/hell. :evil:
     
  3. I'll take that holster from you if you still have it come this saturday. I'd be up for Marysville on sunday, but my grandmother is having her 89th birthday party. :squint: That's a sweet deal on the Wilsons, it's good to know they stand behind their product!

    once i get a better pistol i'd like to do some match shooting.

    even though i'll probably lose i could still use the practice.

  10. Then there you go. You're gonna want 3 mags, a magpouch that will hold 2 mags, and a holster for the gun.

  13. Actually... what time does the match start, and when do they usually finish?

    Same deal with here. 9m register, 10am shoot. Should be done around 2-3pm.

    Marysville builds some tough courses. Lots of steel, double Texas stars and some long courses with some *180's. I earned my one and only DQ there.

    Dude, just run the Ruger then. You'll get a much better idea of what you want, or if the Ruger is the one. Run what you already have. Get a uncle Mikes holster, have 3 mags, and some pouches and your set.

    I'm gonna bug you until you come out, get your shit set up and holler!

    Depends on how proficient you are with either. You definitely have to really know your gun to be good. I would say run the Glock, because 1, may be easier for a new shooter and 2, you'll be more competitive your division, which will be production. not to say that you can't run, but the 4" will be competing against tricked out full Gov length .45's and Single Stack division is tough for a new shooter. I love to reload and am practicing reloads with a single stack. Not for the faint of heart, not as easy as a double stack like a Glock. You will be reloading a ton with a 8 round single stack mag, and they are probably the hardest gun to do a fast reload on ( I dry fire practice my single stack reload a TON to get where I am. )
