Shot a classification match with the great folks at Black Diamond Gun Club. here’s my performance:
Shot a classifier match today and came back home to clean the gun, decided to detail strip it for a thorough cleaning. I haven’t done this since I bought the gun 10months ago.
OMG! That thing is frigging dirty! Why haven’t I done this before? I’ve clean by gun after every time I shoot it and look at how dirty it is on the inside:
The extractor, firing pin, firing pin spring and slide:
Under the grips :
The Sear and disconnector:
After removing the Sear, Disconnector and Firing pin block lifter:
The trigger is super dirty. eesh!
Look how grimy the inside is :
Even the small area under the leaf spring is full of lint :
Gross. I’ve since cleaned the entire gun and feel so much better. If you haven’t detailed stripped your 1911, you should do it right now!
Bought the excellent Blackhawk Serpa Concealment holster for use with my Kimber in IDPA. After shooting it for one match and doing some draw drills, I find that I can’t disengage the locking mechanism consistently. I usually keep my trigger finger WAY off from the holster when I draw, and in order to disengage the lock on the Serpa, I have to force myself to touch the holster with my trigger finger.
During practice, I find myself either not able to unlock it 10% of the time OR I find my trigger finger inside the trigger guard before I present my gun properly. This can be a safety issue. Under stress, I might accidentally discharge the gun while drawing, which is a BIG no no!
I gave up after an hour. Had to do something to fix this holster without permanently damaging it. Here’s the cheapest most simple way of doing it. Take some masking tape, fold it till you get a small 1cmx1.5cm rectangle. Wrap it with some kind of electrician’s tape or any rubbery tape so it won’t slip off.
Insert it under the locking mechanism like so…
and voila!! Stays put and easy to remove when you need to engage the lock.
Bought this superb Ultimate Cliploader from McFadden Machine Co. Inc from Midwayusa.com and decided to do a quick review. It makes loading these .22LR magazines a snap, no more busted thumbs or cut fingers.
Best $22.99 I ever spent!
I wonder who’s screwing who. checkout these video glasses from Sportsmen’s Eyewear : http://handsfreevideo.com/cart/
checkout the price. $269?!?!?!?!
This is how much I paid for mine, and it looked EXACTLY like it : http://cgi.ebay.com/Mini-DV-DVR-Spy-Sun-glasses-Camera-Audio-Video-Recorder_W0QQitemZ110519495706QQcmdZViewItemQQptZLH_DefaultDomain_0?hash=item19bb79ac1a
$22.99!!! that’s less than 10% of the price. Why would anyone buy the Sportsmen’s one?
Hard Boiled by John Woo. The hospital scene is the best ever. Sound effects are so very 80s.. but love this movie!
I’ve been using these MEGGAR mags as secondary (I use CMC Powermag+ as primary) for my daily carry and IDPA matches. I think I’ve shot them ~5 times over the course of 6 months. I was practicing reloads for my Single Stack match and found out why the mags have problems sliding in and out of the magwell, unlike the Powermag+.
The feedlips are cracked!
and bulges out.
Looks like I won’t ever buy them again and stick to the CMC Powermag+. So should you.
Shooting this, IS better than sex 🙂
