I thought you were going to switch to Production Optics?

Be careful, an M class shooter in any other division is like a B in Limited.

That shit got voted down so it's time to move on. My next gun will be an STI Steelmaster unless some other sweet deal comes along.

I took the new blaster to the range today and it shoots great. I'm keeping a lookout for magazines for it as I'll want to get some more as soon as they are available.

ETA: There are other reasons for giving up the M&P's, especially the CORE. Slide mounted optic is fun to shoot, I'll admit but I enjoy shooting my Ruger 22/45 and Ruger 10/22 with fixed mounted red dots more. I know I'm in the minority when I saw I really like shooting steel challenge more than I like shooting USPSA so my plan is to concentrate on Steel Challenge for 2015. Today at the range I did some testing with the timer shooting my M&P Pro, M&P Core, Glock 19, Glock 35, and new blaster. The M&P Pro feels good because I've shot it more than any other gun this year. The CORE was okay but it was kind of hard to keep track of the sight which is to be expected because I don't have as much trigger time with it. The Glock 19 was fun for something different but it's an old Gen 2 model 19. Surprising to me was I actually preferred shooting the Glock 35 (Gen 3) over the M&P Pro, Core and 19. The only thing I've done to the 35 is put a Zev spring kit in it and the trigger on it feels better then the trigger on my M&P Pro. So after all of that blabbering I think my plan for 2015 will be to shoot Limited with the Para in steel challenge and USPSA production with the Glock 35 (unless I could trade it for a Glock 34). I don't mind keeping the 35 because my son shoots a Gen 4 35 and I load his ammo so it won't be a problem to load ammo for me while I'm at it.

Damn, using that logic I'm now unclassified in Limited.

So (x)Lim = (x-2)(AnyClass) ?

I thought (x) Prod = (x-2)(Lim) because minor power factor and mag changes?

the 2011's are sweet blaster for sure, some can be finicky, but honestly lets look at it straight up. It's the indian not the arrow, if you want to shoot something  shoot it... if you can't afford it save up...

 

do you NEED to spend a ton of money.. nope. I like my M&P accuracy concerns me as well as the one that broke during a match on me. but other than that i'd like to be shooting a Stock 2

Math is dumb. (Says the guy working on steel challenge classification calculations)

Good points. What where you shooting when you first made GM?

Oh yeah, that's what he was saying.

Since I'm a B in Production, that means I'm an M in limited, right?

There are 3 choices that make sense for full capacity & Major scoring advantage:

>If you want to shoot the best, get an STI or SV. In 40.

>If you want 2nd-best for a lot less money, get a CZ Tac Sport. In 40.

>If you want crappy arrows so you can jump up & down and shout "Indian not the Arrow waaa waaa waaa!!!" get a Glock. A big one, like a G24 or a G20 or this new G40/G41 hotness when they make 2000, which should be next week.

 

After that it's all dumb choices that, in comparison to the above, suck ass.

>If you want a shiny finish over shitty parts, get a Para.

>If you want a cheap heavy dust cover gun that locks up on the barrel link, get an Armscor.

>If you want double-feed death jams and buckshot-pattern groups at 25, get an M&P.

>If you want to carry 16 ounces worth of spare slide stops in your range bag at all times, get a Limited.

>If you don't understand math, get any damn gun you want in 9mm.

 

There you go, that's how to get set up in Limited.

You don't need 2000 of anything for Limited.

Forgot. Then get a G40 and a conversion 40 barrel and a shroud weight and thumb-push-thingy and a $200 trigger kit and go nuts.

If you go fotay in Stacks....load to a touch longer OAL than you would for your G35's or your M&P.  I can't remember fuck-all the length I had to load Fotay for my buddy who shoots an STfuckingi in Stacks....it's written down at my loading bench somewhere, and I am too fucking lazy to go look...but the rounds nose-dived bad on him when loaded to normal OAL.  He was having serious issues until we tweaked his OAL.

 


 I am all sweet and charming and shit.
