  1. 4.5-5.0 gr TiteGroup 5.0-5.5 gr Trail Boss 6.0 gr Unique
  2. I have a different prescription for my regular glasses (Wiley-X Nemo frames) than I do for my glasses that I shoot in (Wiley-X Nash frames). My regular glasses are lined bifocals. My shooting glasses have an intermediate reading prescription. I can actually see my front sights very clearly and even a distance up to about 15 feet. Beyond that it starts to get blurry, but not to the point that it's too distracting. Last weekend I wore those glasses during the entire match. Talk to your eye doctor and tell him what you are looking for.
  3. I believe Wiley-X has a lifetime warranty on frames.
  4. Model will depend on your face shape and size, among other things. You really need to try them on.
  5. In the long run, it will be beneficial to start reloading sooner rather than later. Ask around at your local club(s) and see if anyone has any reloading equipment they're thinking of getting rid of. You'll need a mentor to show you the ropes, whether in person or online, so best to see if a local shooter that reloads is willing to help you out. Small pistol primers (standard, magnum, match - whatever you can get your hands on for a decent price) for the .38 Special and large pistol primers (small/magnum/match) for the .45 Colt. Clays, Clay Dot, Unique and Trail Boss are use
  6. As mine are prescription, I went with transitional lenses.
  7. Been wearing Wiley-X glasses of some sort or another for well over a decade. My current work and shooting glasses (prescription) are Wiley-X. Several frame styles to choose from.
  8. When I hear Shady Brady I think "Richard Petty" hat:
  9. As mentioned above, check the inside of your seating and crimping dies to ensure lead and/or lube have not built up.
  10. I use a Bunn coffee pot for morning coffee before going to work. Ready in three minutes and gets me out the door. Of a larger issue is when we travel. Not much worse than various hotel dirty water mixtures vaguely referred to as "coffee". All these various "pod" coffee makers also create abominations. I bought an Espro P6 double-walled, stainless steel, 32 oz French press. We took that, an electric kettle, a small electric coffee grinder and a bag of BRCC Just Black coffee beans on a road trip a few weekends ago. Nectar of Odin? I don't know about that. Heaven in
  11. My daughter (who is an OTR driver) and my wife both have their phones set up with this. It's not always accurate, though, as the wife and I found out two weeks ago on a road trip to PA.
  12. Where's it going to land and at what intensity?
  13. Yes, but when traveling I like to be able monitor channel 19 when the Interstate comes to a standstill and I can't see where the line of traffic ends. Sometimes it helps to find an exit in that situation, sometimes it doesn't. I at least feel a little better knowing how far the obstruction is ahead of me. Kinda like having a light at the end of the tunnel.
  14. Depending on what antenna you want to run and what kind of range you expect, there are a couple of options. There are clamps that can be connected to your hood, truck bed and bumper.
  15. Try contacting @SHOOTIN FOX. I need to do the same.
  16. I was speaking specifically for IWB. With an OWB holster, the G19 is absolutely no problem and even preferred.
  17. No - it doesn't make sense as stated. A "MIL" is a unit of measurement. A such, when telling a shooter to adjust you need to tell them how many "MILs" to adjust and what direction.
  18. For me (not a portly guy but not not exactly slim) it comes down to the size of the pistol and what I'm going to be doing. A Glock 19 is more difficult to comfortably carry than a Glock 26, which is more difficult to comfortably carry than a Sig P938. I like the Gunfighters Inc Wraith holster in appendix carry but I want to try the Solace Hybrid.
  19. Please let me know your results if you do. Currently only a sample size of two...
  20. The wife and I try to drink plenty of fluids but we also take electrolyte capsules. At least one before the match starts, another at the halfway point and another after the match is over. We have both noticed an improvement in physical energy and mental awareness towards the end of the match and afterwards on the drive home. This is what we use: GU Energy Roctane Ultra Endurance Electrolyte Capsules, 50-Count Bottle
  21. Revolvers are first guns on the stage. For whatever reason (brain fart, etc), the shooter (non gunfighter or B-Western) draws and cocks both revolvers but does not fire a round. Can the shooter, with and under TO/RO guidance, restage with hammer down on empty chambers and restart the stage?
  22. Care to share what you use and how you easy it is download video? How much video can it record on a specific size memory card before it starts to automatically overwrite? What is the max size memory card it can hold?
  23. I stopped in the store last week on my way to PA with money burning a hole in my pocket. No rifles for sale - store/demo's only on the rack. Oh well... Brought the money home.
  24. If you have an incident, and you are at fault, why not just own up to it?
  25. To each their own and I too support this to an extent (I no longer watch sports except rodeo and some motorcycle racing), but a person that won't watch sports/tv/movies based on liberal political beliefs probably doesn't need to own a TV.
