IDPA Action Pistol Match 04/10/2016

For this IDPA action pistol match at the Amarillo Rifle and Pistol Club, I decided to shoot one of my daily compact carry guns, my CZ 75 P-01.  I also did T-shirt concealment with my daily IWB holster. Unfortunately, T-shirt concealment doesn't provide for very smooth or fast retention reloads, but I wanted to give it a try anyway.  Overall I think I did pretty good and even won two stages (placed 3rd overall out of 20), but I wasn't really concerned with winning the match with a carry gun. :-)

Springfield Armory Trophy Match 1911 - Upgraded!

I had been having trigger reset issues with my Springfield Armory Trophy Match 1911 competition pistol at matches lately, so I decided to upgrade all of the internal components with Evolution Gun Works parts (Koenig hammer, hard sear, ball head disconnector), and I also added a Fusion Firearms K-hole trigger and a Dawson Precision No-Gap Ice magwell (with the required aluminum magazine base pads) to make my magazine reloads smoother. The trigger is now much smoother and the reset is nice and positive.  Now I won't be able to blame the gun for my poor performance at matches! :-)
