Like a Boss

The nice little weld at the bottom is a perfect fragment redirector. It'll be redirected your way.
Seems like all goes to shit when you hear the beep. I’ll do a walk through and game the shit out of a stage before hand and then all hell breaks loose. I’ve missed a whole array of targets. Like totally failed to engage. That kind of miss..Had a club match today. 40 degrees and rain all day. I swear I'm rapidly getting worse at 3 gun, couldn't hit shit with my pistol, I'm talking full magazines on 8yd plate racks. Got home and went 1 for 1 on mine at 25yds. SMH...
Yeah F all that slip and slide stuff.I saw several guys go down while shooting and just as many while resetting. I almost had a shoe get sucked off.
Still just using the pink Federal ammo, with the exception of the slug at the start.
Triac Systems has decent looking barrels. 12.5" and even 13.9". From what I've read, their Track 2.0 barrels give a small boost in velocity. Now I want to build another that will split the difference between the 10.3" and 15" that I run.Fingered a buddies 13.5" gun yesterday. I see a shorty in my future.
Yeah it’s flat. I made sure I wasn’t death gripping the handguard to demonstrate. It was a nice and relaxed hold.Damn that looks awfully flat for a shorty. You mess with the tuning screws much?
Apologies gents been doing finals, and getting after it! Finals are done got a big few weeks of shooting coming up, and have been practicing for my USPSA Classifier coming up this Saturday. Placed 7th at my last 3 gun match again ? funny how that works. Also shot a State IDPA match a few weeks again and placed 6th overall in SSP for unclassified shooters.
I’ve been looking at getting into single stack but I do not have a 9mm single stack so was thinking of taking up CDP in IDPA instead. My Les Baer is more than up for the challenge.Anyone here shoot another disciplines? Although not popular, I want to start shooting single stack division.
I’m looking at getting a 40 cal single stack built. Nothing fancy. Just functional. Or be lazy and just reload 45 ACP and make them shoot at 165 PF. I have plenty of 45’s I can use.I’ve been looking at getting into single stack but I do not have a 9mm single stack so was thinking of taking up CDP in IDPA instead.

If you don't respond to any notifications after certain time period you will stop getting them fyi. Good on you for finals get that graduate degree now and quit playing in the amateurs?For some odd reason I haven’t been getting any notifications to activity on this thread ?
I’m working on it 8 classes left to complete undergrad then I’ll be applying at University of Louisville for grad school.If you don't respond to any notifications after certain time period you will stop getting them fyi.

Agree 1,000% I didn’t get into 3 gun to go out to a match and engage 10 inch plates at 700m if I wanted to do that I’d go to a fucking PRS match. Nor do I care to drag around a skedco with a body in it, then climb a rope, jump over a wall. I want to shoot. I’m not opposed to those types of stages but they are getting out of hand like you stated. Would much rather focus on shooting and not fuckeryLets see if we can get a serious conversation about 3 gun going here. As much as I love talking about gear I want to see if anyone else has opinions on something that been bothering me lately. This is a copy/paste of a thread I started elsewhere:
Death Stars are stupid, change my mind
I've been feeling pretty melancholic about 3 gun lately without being able to put my finger on why. Then a couple days back it hit me. Here's a short story to explain my theory.
So while trying to explain to someone what 3 gun was I stumbled onto some YouTube videos of the 3 Gun Nation episodes from a few years back. Damn those looked like fun stages, no wonder I had to try 3 gun myself. Feeling nostalgic about my first couple years I ended up watching my old stage videos. More awesome looking stages that I'd love to shoot again.
There were basically two match styles in my area at the time. Wannabe 3GN matches, lots of targets, lots of movement, aerial clays, hoser paper as far as the eye could see. Then there were the Saturday USPSA matches turned into Sunday 3 gun by adding more targets, further targets, dump barrels and clays. Lots of movement, lots of walls, tons of activated targets (clamshells, drop turners etc.) even a few memory stages.
But conspicuously absent were circus targets. Death stars, polish plate racks, etc. When the stage designer wanted to make you work he threw in no-shoots, hidden targets, hard leans or low ports. All good challenging stuff that kept it from being a complete hose fest.
Now stage designs seem to consist of go here and shoot some targets then DEATH STAR! It seems that good stage design went out the window with the advent of circus stuff as the centerpiece of every stage. And once one match bought some spinny shit they all had to have them. When thats not an option the next best thing to slow everyone down is walls of 4" 25 yard pistol steel, maybe a 100 yard offhand skinny sammy. Hard to have fun shooting fast when you find yourself in a bullseye match.
Maybe I'm just being whiny or maybe this lack of stage creativity is just a regional thing, possibly caused by burnt out or understaffed match directors. I didn't get into 3 gun to shoot circus targets or precision pistol stuff. I want to drag race with guns.
