    Sadly they don't have an option for the streamlight trl1-hl. I looked up different lights and figured it would be the best option of output, weight and reliability for gaming. I can buy 3 on the secondary market for the price of 1 x300.

    I hit up Tony over at JMCK and he said he can make a light bearing range holster for it so I placed an order with him. It's under $60 shipped. I'm already running one of his holsters on my gamer rig anyway.

    One thing I don't like about the rules is that it potentially makes the cost of entry to the sport go up. It's already expensive enough to someone who wants to join if you don't have the gear. If you show up and now everyone is running magnets and a wml there's an even higher barrier to entry.

    My buddy made USPSA Production Master using his IDPA gear and a pretty stock G34 Gen 3.

    Gear really doesn't play into it until you get to very high levels.

    A WML for a Glock is less than the cost of a local match if you're taking ammo cost into account.

    I measured my TLR-1 and TLR-1 HL and they're pretty dimensionally similar. I wonder what the hangup with the RHT is. I think a little heat would fix the issue either way.

    When I see a new shooter show up with their newly CO/production legal carry rig I will take note. For my upcoming local match I don't see any new shooters registered.

    As for the notional Roland Special shooters they will still get put in Open (most likely minor) and get beat up on, this rules change will not benefit them.

    My math sez that max weight, now attainable, for CO is 4.3 lbs loaded. @GJM tells me that if I am gonna be competitive playa, I need a ratcheting belt. Regular won't do anymore. Too mucho mass.
    Meanwhile my next science project is to see if I can carbon fiber the shit out of my PCC and make it lighter than a CO pistol.
    “Well," said Pooh, "what I like best," and then he had to stop and think. Because although Eating Honey was a very good thing to do, there was a moment just before you began to eat it which was better than when you were, but he didn't know what it was called.

    My wife shot her first match with mags forward and a magnet, and found enough value from the magnet that I put one on my belt tonight.

    I disagree. When I attend a match that allows for multiple entries, the difference in same shooter, open versus limited is typically much great at B level than at master or above.

    I fiddled around with my rig this week. I have always felt a little odd reaching back to my farthest mag pouch location (I was in Production, so four pouches, plus a pouch for my starter mag). So it was nice moving them forward on the belt. And since I'm moving to CO now, I removed the starter pouch, and just left the four DAA pouches.

    My holster got moved forward as well, this position feels better than strong side hip. Moving it into Appendix (I carry AIWB) position felt really weird, so I moved it back, kinda in between where it was and full appendix.

    I am going to try my regular dry practice and see how this goes before my first match in CO, a 6-stage classifier scheduled for 4/19.

    Question: Moving mag pouches forward, do you guys see any benefit in adjusting the cant of the pouch at the same time? I didn't change mine, just basically slid forward. The cant is such that the basepad tilts forward, same as before. Some dry reloads didn't show me much difference, but of course this is static, and not actually running in between shooting positions like I usually would. I'm going to loosen one up and see where the cant falls naturally, but I was curious what you guys were doing with the pouch cant.
