    Yes she did! Way to rage through those plateracks, and be ready to shoot as soon as her foot was across the fault line.

    My wife’s match video from today. Somehow missed her classifier stage, which she did good on.

    Between Tuesday Night Steel earlier this week, and the match today, I have shot the two best matches of my life.

    Red dot vs iron sight gun

    I’ve been seriously shooting a slide mounted RDS for a little over a month. I have around 1500 rounds through the 34.5, and daily dry fire. After my practice session yesterday I decided to run the FAST test with my Gen 5 34 with SRO vs my carry 19.5 in a 34 length JM custom AIWB holster.

    Full disclosure- the 34 is set up for USPSA CO, similar to GJM’s, and I had fired approx 400 rounds before the test in my competition rig. I fired 50 rounds through the 19 prior to running the test.


    34.5 FAST:

    4.69 clean
    4.62 clean
    4.48 clean
    4.21 dropped 2 shots (pushing hard for speed)
    4.43 clean

    19.5 FAST:
    4.96 clean
    4.92 clean
    4.93 dropped 1 head shot
    4.88 clean
    5.12 clean

    Things I noticed:
    With the dot, the headshots on the first 2 runs could’ve been covered with a 0.50c piece, so I started pushing the head shots faster. The “feed back” from shooting a dot is more than worth the price of admission. My grip and trigger press have improved greatly from practicing with the dot. On something like running a plate rack @7yds, the dot is equal to irons, move past 10yds and the dot starts to shine. In USPSA competition, the dot for me, is WAAAY easier to transition and shoot targets more accurately while moving.

    I’m sold on the dot, wish I would’ve made the jump earlier.

    I would ditch the Magpul 140mm magazines and go OEM 17’s with Taran 140 extensions.

    Here is my wife’s match video from today, I think her movement is terrific.



    Here is just my last stage at that match, since you would rather watch her than me!

    Ordered TTI extensions yesterday.

    The OEM mags reload easier for me as well.
