Metric is dumb. And before you try to retort, there isn't a single carpenter in Canada that works (measures) in metric.

I dunno, doing conversions in any science related class seems a lot easier using metric than imperial.

Listen newb, if you used the search function, you'd already know that we've established that science is dumb.

Isn't science the basis of gunsmithing?

So you're telling me if I drink some Johnnie Walker Black Label before, and during my gunsmithing adventure on the 85B.. That I'll not only do an IPSC production legal job, but it'll get me an ultra badass 6lb DA with 1lb SA?

 

I'm in.

So.. There's a used ShadowLine Sp-01 for sale up here: http://usedfirearms....ine-9mm-pistol/

 

Only thing I'm not too sure about is that hammer shape and the fact that it's retardedly cheap, considering those mags go for $55 each up here...

 

Anybody have any experience with their new "modern hammer" and with ShadowLines in general?

Update: How many targets do I need to buy? How many targets lasts you guys how long/many rounds? How do I get target sticks? Do I just cut some up? How many times can I paste a target? The range where I can practice with holster has target bases and some steel targets.

 

Shot timer or no shot timer like Eric G.?

 

Any thing I should know about targets?

How many targets do you need to buy?

None. Get them used after a match. If you do buy some, buy whatever makes sense with shipping costs etc. Pase tehm until they are 75% paster by weight or more. Then use them for Dots backers or something. Practice on new and pasted-to-shit targets. You'll see both at matches.

Target sticks depending on your stands are furring strips of various widths. No idea what you impoverished Canadians have up there but here in 'Merica we go to Lowe's or Home Depot and get them, and they can cut them right there in the store to whatever length you prefer.

Shot timer vs. no shot timer is an interesting question, and so not going into that one. Basically, you should have one and then figure out when to use it. Practical shooting is a game of points and time, so if you can't measure time you're doing it wrong.

For starter just use a shot timer app on an iPhone, android or whatever. All you really need is a start delay and a par time beep. My timer is en route back from the shop, I've been making do with the iPhone "Shot Timer" app.

Training without a timer is do-able, but at some point you have to quantify you results to know if you are making progress.

Invest in pasters, recycle targets. I stopped buying targets.

If you buy 8' 1x2's or whatever they are called in Canadistan, and cut off the ends to 5.5', then you can drill holes on the target sticks, bolt on the stubs, or even an 8' cross-bar with even more stubs, staple paper plates to the stubs, and use them for a poor man's steel. This can nicely supplement whatever steel you have access to or be used to make full-scale dry fire practice rigs.

Thanks for the advice. Buying from here:

 

https://www.freedomv...c-ipsc-target-0

 

25-75 targets for $20 shipping. Pretty reasonable considering everybody else is $30+. The joys of having stuff shipped from East coast to West coast.

 

Thinking 5k pasters/patches for now.

Make sure you get white and possibly black ones! You need to practice with hard cover and no-shoots.

I dunno, how much you plan on missing? A roll should last a long, long time. I got 2 rolls of each many moths ago and not even done with the first roll. Either I am not that bad or more likely I don't do enough partials.

I plan on becoming a god. So.. theoretically I shouldn't need any as long as I figure out the ballistics/points of impact at 5,10,15,20,25,50 yds/metres for blazer brass, blazer alum, remington UMC, the remaining stockipile of S&B 145 PF that I have, and the reloads my guy does.

You can save tons on pasters if you just miss a lot.

I'm working on mastery of the "perfect double", save on pasters without the pain of mikes.

20K brown, 5K white (for pasting paper plates), 1K black. Think big.
