    I guess I should clarify what I meant.

    It was more of a "if you're a B shooter, really you should focus on other things besides gear... because you're a B shooter..."

    Sure, if you want to finish better at a match you can game more... but does it really matter if you finish at 64% versus 61%?

    Changing divisions is a completely different thing due to differences in optics and magazine capacity (which does play a significant amount in scoring, I believe).
    Pointing at cardboard things....

    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.
    I agree that gear is not what's holding most people back. However, there is a perception among new shooters that it does matter. So if I show up to a match as a new shooter and almost everyone that is serious is running a gamer rig, belt, drop offset holster, magnets, wml, +gun it's going to make people think they need all that stuff to be really competitive.

    As someone who just started off in the sport I have heard so many times that gear doesn't matter and it's always the top level people that say it. New people struggle to grasp that. I'm just now getting to the point where I understand what they mean by it.

    @rj, yes, I am now canting Mag1 and 2. That makes a big difference. The first pouch does hit my leg on a deep squat, but itís not a dealbreaker.

    Holster position: I moved it 3/4Ē forward to reduce stress on my wrist during the draw. Thatís it. Any further forward, and the holster gets in the way without any additional advantage.

    Where is your magnet? I was pretty skeptical, but my wife proved me wrong.

    I had to flip my belt closure to the back to get everything where I wanted it, in terms of placement of stuff in front.
    Likes pretty much everything in every caliber.

    Flat magnet is at 11:00. It holds my timer, so thatís useful.

    5.3 Appropriate Dress
    5.3.1 The use of camouflage or other similar types of military or police garments other than by competitors who
    are law enforcement or military personnel is discouraged. The Match Director will be the final authority in
    respect of what garments must not be worn by competitors.

    So my 5.11 pants on my civilian body would be bad but my Bass Pro cargo pants would be OK?

    I guess on the one hand, I sort of understand, but other other, that's IDPA-level rules silliness.

    Do you think a magnet that strong could mess up the electronics in the timer?

    I hope not. Have to remember to keep my watch away.
