    Hopefully one click down from max lasts a lot longer, because using full intensity is like going into afterburner on a tactical jet.

    i am disappearing shortly to go fish at a remote lodge until Monday, so I expect you will have it all argued out by the time I return, as to which CO pistol is best! As my initial post should have...

    I am still pissed at Sig too, but my grudges are against companies and not products, or I would pretty much be limited to a 1950’s manufacture S&W revolver, Colt 1911 and Winchester model 70.

    You must have scared that bear good, because he showed up in our garbage overnight here in Montana. He didn’t enjoy the taste of the Amazon boxes.

    The SRO supply seems to have dried up. Wonder if Trijicon is making some tweaks before releasing more?

    I think that is inevitable — my wife has improved so much, I don’t want her to have a technology advantage over me!

    Assuming reliability, accuracy and reasonable ergonomics, a lot of this is...

    So, Wednesday, June 26 at 0625 mountain, I just put in a fresh Renata CR1225 and set the Acro to one setting below max. Will see how long it lasts.

    I would say they are similar, but the P10F trigger is about a pound lighter.

    The P10 has other advantages. It is available optics ready, where the VP9 has to be direct milled. It has a 4.5 inch...

    I just ordered some more batteries. I am about to head fishing to a remote lodge for a week, but when I am back maybe I can fire up two Acro’s on different settings and see how long they last.

    USPSA Carry Optics pistols

    I started shooting USPSA Carry Optics (CO) in 2016, shortly after it became a provisional division, and thought I would share some of my experiences with various pistols.

    Prior to 2016, I had shot...

    The Acro is now dead. That makes 11.5 days, and some days less than that with full intensity available.

    The dot is barely hanging in as of today, with the intensity of the dot on max, about like 5 with a fresh battery. Think this is 12 days since I started the test.

    Here is something I noticed about the 150 grain 9mm load. When I put my “regular” 22 rounds into my P10F 140 mm magazines (OEM mag plus CZ Custom baseplate), the 150 grain Syntech bullets apparently...

    Now that you have tested 9, 40, 45 with hard cast and penetrator loads, I am very interested in your thoughts on the field pistol load. I prioritize reliability first, then bullet performance and...

    Just got back from traveling and checked the Acro. I put in a new battery and turned it to high a week ago Friday. The Acro has dimmed quite a bit from its fresh battery intensity, but the red dot is...

    I had heard the Acro’s closed emitter design offered an advantage in acquiring the dot, but I have not observed it. The number one advantage of the closed emitter for me is all weather capability,...

    I conceal, draw and reload the 43X better, but the 26 is more comfortable to shoot, especially for more rounds.

    Responding to the mention above, I think it is personal, and any of these are good choices. When I carry a Glock lately, it is almost always a G43X. For years, my wife carried a G26, and now the 43X...

    I have shot an RMR enough to form an opinion — that I like the RMR more than iron sights but less than other optics with a larger display for performance shooting.
