This year I’ve committed to shoot Revolver in IDPA and USPSA to see how far I can go. Next Season, I’ve decided to shoot Open. It’s an expensive affair I know, with the gun being really pricy and the gear equally dear. I’ve decided to start accumulating everything that’s required now so that I can be ready to start shooting in the OPEN Division in September/October which is typically the start of the next shooting season. They state championships and major matches are usually done by then, so I can experiment and get proficient with the new gun.
I got a great deal on an Open SV gun today by a local shooter, stripped it apart to give it a thorough cleaning.
an Open gun in the 2011 platform is a lot more complicated than a 1911, but not terribly difficult.
here’s how the new blaster looks like after it’s cleaned and put together.
Will update as more stuff comes in the next few months.
