  1. Better let Loretta and friends know about this ASAP so they can write a law to ban it
  2. Seems very strange they would eliminate this ported slide rather than just add the standard model. I am having trouble believing the weight they list on the standard as it is exactly the same as the ported model at 26 ounces - I would have expected it to be heavier since there is more metal.
  3. Sorry I am terrible at keeping records and just at looking at them I don't see any model numbers. But if you go to their web site it should not be hard to figure out. Please not if I were to buy any holster now it would likely be from the Ben Stoeger pro shot and be with the Boss hanger which I have found to be the best for a drop offset holster for competition in production.
  4. I have a Com Tac drop offset that I use for production and a Safariland GLS for IDPA.
  5. The PPQ 5" M2 is wonderful just the way it comes, probably the best out of the box trigger I have ever seen. That said I did change the trigger return spring which takes 12 ounces off the trigger pull. I also put the smallest backstrap on it and then wrapped the grip in rubber tennis or golf grip tape as the grip gets a little slippery for me otherwise. Oh wait, I also changed the sights to Dawson Fiber optics. You are correct about the rebates, they are currently offering $100 off, which makes it even better. Some like the Q5 match, which is a very similar gun with an optics mounting plate (like a Glock MOS) and a different trigger. Some like the Q5 trigger better - I don't. It has less take up and over travel but I find the pull a lot harder.
  6. Try the PPQ 5" M2 way better than the 4". Can't go wrong with either the SP-01 or the 5" M2.
  7. Congrats on the new SP-01. I have one and really like it. They are fairly easy to get parts for and if you really want to improve on it check out CZ Customer and Cagun Gun works for parts and support. Kind of surprised about your comment that they are good for people with big hands (the Beretta definitely is) as I would say I have average hands and think the gun has a small grip compared to other and find it fits my hands perfectly. I got rid of my 92FS because the grip was so large I had to rotate my hand and then reacquire my grip to hit the mag release.
  8. Go shoot some knockdown steel and you will learn to love steel. They are really fun matches.
  9. Steel plates just mess with your head, they are similar size to the "A" zone and bigger than the head. Aim small and miss small.
  10. I love the early start time there, and the match moves quickly. I was on the road at 1:05pm. The only thing I don't like is the fine silt or sand in the pits that really does a job on your magazines. At the end of the match when unloading mags one of my G35 mags seemed like very little spring tension and then the ammo seemed like it was just falling out when I held the mag upside down. When it was empty I looked in and saw one round still in there sitting on the follower that was about three inches down jammed in place. Note to self - take all mags totally apart and clean out today.
  11. YES, what did you do to make it show up that way???

Am I missing how, or is it just not possible?
  13. Not a huge fan of little dogs, but my daughter left her little rat dog at camp Husky for the weekend, so I took some pictures of her:
  14. Just imagine if the state shut down or even slowed the processing of welfare checks! That is right, they would burn down the four big cities and riot.
  15. I'm not working Monday, or Tuesday through Sunday, or any other days ever again [emoji4] Gave that crap up about six years ago.
