Default I've never had something so big in my hands before, OR My 6 Inch Custom Pistol thread

My new (to me) toy for USPSA Limited division.

Custom 6" 1911 built on Caspian Hi Cap frame and slide by CanyonCreekCustom.com. The slide has been internally lightened and weighs less than my 5" 1911. The mags hold 20+1 of .40.

My timing is a little off with it because it recoils differently than my 5" gun, but the accuracy potential is much better. You can get away with having the sights a bit more out of alignment when shooting fast and still get hits because of the extra inch of sight radius.

Yes. They are slowly becoming more and more popular. I'm just jumping on the bandwagon because Rob Leatham shoots one.

Very video game like.

I'm not a fan of USPSA, I shot IDPA. Like the tactical aspect.

What is the difference in IDPA, IPSC and USPSA?

I shoot them both because I like to shoot, but IDPA matches are getting too boring for me. The round count is much lower, and the stages are much shorter.




Mike....USPSA what is in the videos I showed you. Generally there are large courses that you have to make your way through, shooting the targets in whatever order you prefer, reloading along the way. They also have smaller, stand and shoot, type stages as well though. USPSA is the US branch of IPSC.

IDPA is based on defensive shooting. The stages are shorter, and you have to engage targets as if you were shooting a real life scenario (clearing a room, etc). There are rules on where and how you have to reload (must reload from behind cover and can't drop any mags with ammo in them). Both are fun sports, but IDPA is getting old to me. There are way more IDPA matches in my area though, so I shoot that just as much.

Yeah, IDPA is a little short. Our club is trying to cater more to Revolver too and makes it lame. The other problem at our club is that we are having 80+ shooters at a monthly match.

When i first started going 40 was good.

If you have a range that doesn't have multiple bays that many people really sucks. The places I shoot USPSA at both have 6 or 7 bays, so you get in a group of maybe 5-10 people and go bay to bay without having to wait for 70 guys to finish a stage.

Our club has 7 bays and plenty of SOs. But 10 people is a lot in one group. 6-8 is about right.

1 so
1 shooter
1 score keeper
1 guy on deck
2 people taping

You're right, but if you have 120 people show up for a local match they have to go somewhere. That's a rare occasion though.
