Re: RDS v. Iron Sights: Not just for old blind guys

My suggestion for those trying out pistol red dots is to give it time. I was less than thrilled with the first couple of range trips. I've decided to stick with the red dot for the next six months and I'm finally starting to turn the corner after about 700 rounds. Absolutely correct. It takes time ...

Re: RDS v. Iron Sights: Not just for old blind guys

I’m a fan.

The simultaneously most hurtful/true thing I’ve heard about shooting red dot equipped pistols is “There are no more hard shots, just bad trigger presses”.

Re: Been too long

Hey, where do you shooting idpa and uspsa around here? Good to have you back. :tiphat: We are spoiled here in central Texas. These days I’m usually only attending the Temple Gun Club matches (idpa and uspsa once a month, Steel challenge Thursday nights in the summer). Copperas cove also has idpa an...

Re: Been too long

Here’s a copy of a post I did for a “dinner pic” Arfcom style. Only I made breakfast tacos, so mine is a breakfast pic. Hope you enjoy, Bill. Step 1: dice up a yukon gold potato. Boil in water with vinegar/salt for 5 minutes. Just enough to get the insides a little fluffy. https://i.imgur.com/cnpgpx...

Re: Been too long

Welcome back to the forum. I am doing okay. Had some health issues, but they are under control. In addition to the CHL topics I have missed your cooking and your music posts. I am not nearly as active posting as I used to be. I guess, I don't have as much new to say. ;) Good to see you still postin...

Re: Been too long

Catch us up on all your blessings. Gladly. :biggrinjester: Wife finished her schooling and got a job, and most importantly....I got a promotion to "Dad" in 2018. Still in Temple. City has grown like crazy since I moved here back in 2010. Still shoot USPSA/IDPA/Steel as often as I can, but my range ...

Been too long

How’s everybody doing?

Haven’t posted much in a long time. Had issues for a while where I had to log on every single time I visited the forum and got tired of doing it....but figured it was time to try again and reconnect with some of my fellow Texans. :mrgreen:

Re: Keep an eye on Virginia

It would be impactful if enough of us showed up. And the actors who tend to give the rest of us a bad name stay home instead of making scenes with elected officials. I’m one of those guys who raged against the OCT antics and the dumb way they handled themselves and representing gun owners. But hone...

Re: Keep an eye on Virginia

2. Why do we not start having a TSRA day each legislative session here in Texas? I think it would be an outstanding thing for them to start now, before we end up in a similar situation to Virginia. Everybody meet up outside, folks go visit their reps from their area and say hello, express support o...

Re: New CZ 75B SA

Really disappointed they discontinued the SA.

Mine is more accurate than either my Shadow or Shadow 2.

Re: Switching to wheel guns this year

The Year of the Revolver is over a couple months early. Well, not totally. I’ll still shoot wheel guns in competitions for the rest of the year just because it’s fun. I might still carry one occasionally, both this year and into the future. But for the most part, I’ve improved what I wanted to impro...

Re: Switching to wheel guns this year

Want to watch someone default to their level of training instead of rise to the occasion? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bS3OrfeIJko Shot IDPA last weekend with the Model 10. I've been doing weak hand reloads for a couple of reasons this year. 1) didn't initially feel confident/comfortable doing th...

Re: Switching to wheel guns this year

Was moving some gopro footage over to a backup drive, and thought it'd be fun to find some footage from the last couple years of shooting steel challenge with non stupid guns to compare to the J frame shoot. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i4XbNrlKScw The J frame is slower, even before reloads ruin ...

Re: Switching to wheel guns this year

Do you think your opinion re: speed loaders would change any if it were based on carrying one with typical carry ammo in place of wadcutters? To clarify, I only feel that way for wadcutters specifically with a j frame at matches. In general, moonclips>comp3 speedloaders>all other speed loaders> spe...

Re: Switching to wheel guns this year

Last steel challenge match of the year was last week. Shot my 642 in it. 5 shots, 5 targets. Don't screw up. Steel challenge is all about accuracy at speed. But with a 5 shot J frame, the margin for error is gone. So, how fast can you go and still be sure you're going to hit the target? That's the l...
