New Holster for Multiple Guns

I recently made a new holster that indexes on a Streamlight TLR-1 light rather than the gun itself so that it works with multiple guns. The holster is an open muzzle design, so it will also accommodate comps or full-size guns. I love how quickly and easily I can move the TLR-1 from gun to gun without tools and still use the same holster. The additional length of the TLR-1 is a little uncomfortable AIWB, but I'm getting used to it.

I also acquired new optic-ready top ends for my basic CZ P-07 and my Gen4 Glock 19 FS with Burris Fastfire 3 red dot sights, and green fiber optic front sights (my usual competition setup). The top end for the P-07 was one that I previously owned but ended up getting back from the person I sold it to.  The top-end for the Glock is a factory Gen 4 MOS complete upper. I really like that I can easily convert these two guns back to stock configuration with iron sights if I ever need to. Now I'm up to 6 polymer framed carry guns with red dot sights! 😜

DIY Titanium Anodizing

While I don't post much of my knife addiction on this blog, I thought I would share some of the cool stuff I've been doing lately with anodizing titanium at home for several of my favorite pocket knives.  After watching what seemed like millions of YouTube videos on the subject, I finally decided to give it a go.  I'm pretty happy with the results! 😎

IDPA Action Pistol Match 10/24/2018

I reached a new milestone as I shot every stage of tonight's indoor IDPA action pistol match clean using my carry gun and off the shelf ammo (T-shirt concealment from AIWB). To my surprise, I also took 1st place Overall as well. I can't wipe this stupid grin off my face! 😁

Outlaw 3-Gun Match 10/21/2018

Yet ANOTHER Outlaw 3-Gun match.  It seems as if I've only been attending 3-Gun matches lately, but other than a few indoor IDPA matches that I didn't record, I haven't attended any IDPA or USPSA matches over that last couple of months due to weather cancellations or scheduling conflicts.  Ah well... shooting is shooting, so I'm not gonna bitch. 😜  The stages at this particular match were all very similar with just a few changes for each stage. It was a little repetitive, but it made for an efficiently run match that actually saved us enough time to run a 5th stage and it was also great practice.  I got several opportunities to do some shotgun reloads as well as match saver reloads.  I'm still not that great at either, but it was good to be faced with them at this match. Despite my shotgun reload challenges, I ended up in 2nd place Overall. 😖

Outlaw 3-Gun Match 09/23/2018

This 3-gun match was rifle and pistol only, and most of it was long distance shots out to 400 yards with the rifle and out to 75 yards with the pistol.  Not much movement either.  There were only four of us that showed up, so it was pretty much just a practice day to see what I could do for longer distances.

Outlaw 3-Gun Match 09/16/2018

Not that great of a performance at this Outlaw 3-Gun match near Dawn, TX. I had a few issues with my shotgun not feeding the last round, and I wasn't as accurate with the pistol as I would've liked.  Still a lot of fun though!

Outlaw 3-Gun Match 08/26/2018

I came in 2nd place overall at this 3-Gun match, which helped ease the pain from my less than normal result from the USPSA match on the previous day.  We had a shotgun heavy stage at this match, and I was really happy that my Franchi Infinity shotgun performed without any issues at all.  I'm still a little slow with my shotgun reloads since I only load three shells at a time (inserting them one-at-a-time), but I'm comfortable with that method for now.
