One day I wanna be as cool as this Asian man shooting his Gold Open Division gun in IPSC.
except mine will be shiny!
Adjusting Windage affect Elevation? WTF?!?! Wasted so much time today zeroing the gun. Make sure you adjust the windage, tighten up the retaining screw, then adjust the elevation and reconfirm.
Someone needs to make a modern big lens red-dot alternative to a C-More. *sigh*
Not hugging trees or going organic. I’m talking about fiber optic sights. I’ve always been a fan of using red fibers in my front sights for all my guns until I started shooting a red dot sight on my Open Division gun. I’m so used to looking at a red dot with both eyes open and hitting where I place the dot (most of the time).
The problem comes when when I switch to another gun like my S&W 625 revolver for IDPA or USPSA, Kimber TLE RLII for single stack. I’m so used to looking at the dot that I forget that I need to align my rear sight. I’ll place the red dot where I want and pull the trigger wondering why I’m not hitting the target correctly.
So, I’ve decided to trick my mind with a simple color change 🙂 Switch my fibers to green and voila! Now I would remember to align my rear sight because it’s different enough from my red dot.
During my Chrono session, I discovered that my sights were off by 3″ to the left and 4″ high!! That explains a lot now. I realized something was a miss during the all steel stage at the recent Northwest Challenge when I took 10 shots to bring the steel plate down.
At the Chrono, the groups were all off so it was clear what was wrong.
That would explain why I’m tagging a lot of no shoots and tanking stages recently.
I’m not sure how that happened but I’m suspecting the crack in my cmore is contributing to the problem.
I’ve adjusted the sight now but haven’t tested it yet so I better find some time to get to the range again to try it.
Nothing is better than shooting a match for Charity. Toys for Tots is a great one to be able to support. Had a great time but it was super-cold and I’m totally blaming my lackluster performance on weather. 🙂
Even my camera refused to work on four of the stages.
My plan all along was to bling up my Open Division blaster by making it as shiny as possible. I had polished the slide to a shine and always wondered how to turn my C-More Serendipity chrome since it’s made of plastic. I recently bought a “chrome” like spray paint from Rust-O-Leum and spray it on a spare C-More that I had sitting around. After drying for two weeks, it looks decent. Not exactly chrome but a bright silver I would say.
What do you think?
As you can see, not really chrome.
Was worried that the shiny exterior will impact how I view the dot but as you can see, it’s pretty decent.
Even with light shining at it, the dot is clear and the ring doesn’t get in the way.
