    One of the best investments I've made was a universal sight pusher. I've probably done about 50-60 sights with mine, 6 or 7 of which were actually mine...

    It comes in handy for zeroing fixed sights so I take it to the range when working with a new pistol/sights.

    It was a pretty small group yesterday....maybe 25-30 people.

    Since I don’t handload 9mm, I left all mine there for ya!

    I was at a perfect 0 for the first four stages of the classifier until the last one, and I forgot to take the head shot. Boom!....5 points, lol.

    I aced the last stage, but was having so much fun, I did a second reload and hit them all again, adding more. But what the heck, I didn’t want to take that loaded ammo home with me:)

    How many stages??

    Our Tuesday night matches are normally 6 stages, run in 3 bays & 3 squads. Shoot 3, then redesign/setup, then shoot the second 3 stages. Normally I go through about 130 rds or so. The other couple of matches I go to are also about 5-6 stages and about 120-130 rds. Seems to be about the norm.

    It was 6 stages of fire with one being a 5x5 qualifier. Took about 2-3 hours to shoot. Not a huge turn out yesterday.

    My guess would be, it was hot, hence the "cover garment optional" look.

    It was 94 yesterday. A lot of these guys wear those vest thingies when the stage is supposed to be from concealed.

    A few offered me their vests to make the draw easier, and I told them no thanks. I shot the entire course dressed like I do every day (except for the shorts and go-fasters).

    It looks like you are the only one carrying in an untucked T.

    I was probably the only one not gaming it. Everyone but the wife and I had competition style guns, and were covering with those vests.

    I like to do it for the practice aspect. EDC, every day dress.

    I ran nearly all my TDI classes the same way, often the only one in classes of 25-30 students.
