Got this today from a fellow NWPPA shooter for a cheap price as a pair of backup glasses for when I go shooting. Right now I’m using a pair of yellow Rudy Project Rydons which are fabulous but it’s always wise to have an extra pair for when your primary glasses go down or when you have friends who forget to bring their eye protection to shooting sessions.
The Wiley X SG-1 comes with a dark lens and a clear one just in case you need to see more in low light conditions, namely during the later part of a match. The lenses were a snap (pardon the pun) to put on, it just snaps in place.
This “arms” of the glasses can be pulled out and replaced with an elastic strap so you can wear it for more violent sports like skiing or biking.
Will be bringing this out to my next match to give it a spin.
I’ve been shooting my Kimber for a while now and have been cleaning it diligently but I’ve only been using the field strip method. The internals are still factory lubricated and I wanted to learn how to completely disassemble it and clean it completely. Was searching online for a tutorial found this awesome video :
and the reverse, the assembly :
Magpul Dynamics just recently released their two new DVDs, The Art of the Dynamic Handgun, a 4 DVD set that includes 7 hours of training material. It covers all aspects of the handgun, from equipment, accessories, stance, grip, dynamic positions and movements and more. If you’re into handguns for shooting or personal defense, you have to get this DVD.
The 2nd DVD is the Aerial Platform Operations DVD, catered more towards Law enforcement and the Military, but it’s still fun to watch!
these two DVDs round out Magpul Dynamics training series which includes the original The Art of the Dynamic Carbine Vol I and Vol II. These DVDs are AMAZING and definitely worth the money.
Here are some trailers :
CheckMate Industries is sponsoring the 4th Annual Single Stack Championship in May 30th 2010 and I intend to participate with my Kimber TLE/RL II. I shoot IDPA with it a lot and only have a holster & one dual mag pouch. I did not have enough mags and mag pouches for Single Stack as each stage runs around 20-24 rounds and that means at least four 8round magazines.
Ordered some CMC Powermag+ 8 round magazines and Don Hume dual mag pouches from MidwayUSA and I’m all set… hopefully!
here are the details of the match if any of you are interested :
Sunday, May 30th, 2010
Renton Fish & Game Club
7 stages, ~140 rounds
$15 match fee
Awards for overall placement
Open to single stack 1911-style pistols. As in past years, this will be a non-denominational match, to attract both IDPA and USPSA shooters in the area. Targets and scoring will be based on IDPA, with Course of Fire rules borrowed from USPSA. Run and gun, drop mags all over the ground, the whole deal.
Average attendance the last three years has been ~50 shooters.
The Leatham-Enos scoring system allows ESP and CDP (and USPSA Single Stack) to shoot head-to-head, so there will be one division competing for the single stack championship, and other divisions for folks who just want the trigger time (bring your revo, Glocks, hi-caps, whatever, if you don’t have a 1911).
Leatham-Enos scoring adjusts the time penalty to accommodate power factor. Vickers scoring is always .5 second per point, major and minor can’t compete against each other. The scoring program will be tweaked to automatically apply a different penalty – .3 second – for major. Shooters will register as either CDP/Single Stack Major, or ESP/Single Stack Minor.
The match will generally be run like a regular club match, with shooters meeting at 10:00. No pre-registration required. Awards and prizes after the match.
I’ve always wanted to find a way to mount my Contour HD camera onto a rifle and after searching online for one, someone on youtube (can’t remember the name) suggested that I use the QD mount. so here’s how I made mine :
First I used the Helmet Strap mount from Vholdr.com, four hex screws & nuts and a Fakesoft LaRue QD mount.
Drilled four holes :
Make sure the holes are aligned with the QD mount :
Screw them onto the QD :
And secure the nuts. Best to use some Loctite here too :
here’s how it looks like mounted on an AR :
Roy, Sydney and I drove almost 2 hours to Custer, WA today for a safety briefing. Typically in any IPSC/USPSA or IDPA styles matches, you’d have to go for a safety briefing by the Range Officer before you can participate or shoot the matches that are run by that range.
Here’s a video of me navigating through the stage that they’ve setup for us :
I’ll be uploading videos of the other folks who were there shortly, after I get off this plane 🙂
