(Other competitors names blurred to protect the innocent, but let’s just say I know 2 of them pretty well and they are very very good shooters. I don’t know the guy who was A4)
Seriously though, it was a good outing, even though I blew it on Stage 2. But as someone once told me; “A Win is a Win”.
It was also the 2nd fastest non-rimfire time for the evening. Beaten only by Sean, who’s not human so he doesn’t count.
This is my poor man’s 9mm Open/Unlimited gun:
- Glock 17c (compensated), factory ported barrel.
- Trigger mods (polishing, connector, lightened striker + springs, 11lb recoil spring, more polishing).
- C-More STS 7MOA, plus lever so that you don’t grab the C-More to rack the slide. C-More is currently mounted in the rear site dove tail with the standard adapter.
- Not shown: Extended Magazine Release (catch).
Last week did not go so well, as I had forgotten to add the extended magazine release, and reloads were neigh impossible at speed.
Is the 17[c] part significant? I don’t think so. It certainly makes more noise but I’m not convinced it shoots any flatter than my non c 17, and certainly not any flatter than my 34.
But it sure is fun.
If you’re interested in shooting steel. Friday Night Steel is a great place to start. Very laid back and noob friendly.
