  1. Get whatever's least expensive yet still high quality. That way you can get more of them to allow you a larger variety of set ups. In this case size really doesn't matter. Mine happen to be 14" circles. When I'm practicing for a big close match I set them extra close. When practicing for a more difficult match I set them further away. Easy peasy.
  2. Thank God I've only experienced something like that a couple of times in my life and yep, that's exactly what I did both times. It sure isn't something I thought about. Reflex took over and I got the nasty stuff as far away from me as I could as fast as I could.
  3. Another vote for this ^ (UTO is the previous shooter unless we have someone on the posse who is physically unable to perform other duties and volunteers to be the dedicated UTO)
  4. Sorry, not a safety issue but mine is: Never, ever, EVER go to the line without a plan firmly in your head. Plan the stage, commit to it and stick with it.
  5. This ^ X 1,000 As most folks know we pretty quickly reach a point where we can't pick up any more measurable speed when shooting our guns. At that point we save time with transitions. In my ever so humble opinion, that's where video really is a God send. During a stage it's next to impossible to "see" what we can improve. But when we go back a day or so later and look at the video we can see what we did right, what we did wrong and what we pray we can forget.
  6. Your spare rounds aren’t just for looks, they’re also (obviously) used when a stage calls for a reload and/or replacing a jacked out rifle round. Figure how many of those you’ll need on a stage and there’s your number. But also remember placement. You want them to be easily accessible by whichever hand you’ll be grabbing them. During reload stages I’ve seen far too many shooters having to contort themselves in ways the human body wasn’t meant to bend.
  7. HERE. Let’s try this one. These two corners need to be relieved so the case rim doesn’t get hung up on them when loading over the top.
  8. Man, I’m totally backwards today. I should have taken pictures of a carrier still in the gun.
  9. 100% correct. My description is backwards. Arrows are pointing to the correct corners, I just described it wrong.
  10. New from the factory there are sharp corners at the back end of the carrier where the case rim can get hung up while loading over the top. Take a stone and very slightly “break” these sharp corners. Top and back views
  11. I don’t disagree with that but question how many rounds it would take before it happened.
  12. Common sense opinions like those always count.
  13. ^ This X 1,000 You may grow into all the mods you listed but you may find out they're just neat whiz bang toys. Save you money for now and then do one upgrade at a time. If you use the shotgun approach and find you don't like the new feel you'll have no idea which mod you don't like.
