Yes, USPSA for about the past 7-8 years. B class in Limited.

All else being equal, I'd rather practice the faster way early and often. If you can't hit the button with your strong thumb without shifting the gun (I couldn't), modify the gun until you can.

If you clean in the day or two after shooting, most of the fouling wipes right off. It takes a week or so to harden up to the point that soaking is going to do much good.

I haven't shot L10 in a while but for me, it's just a place to shoot guns that would otherwise be uncompetitive. Mostly I use a .45 2011 and do OK with it.

The "short" one is 126mm and fits flush with the base of the plastic grip. The 140mm is legal for Limited.

If the bar gets much higher, oxygen masks will drop from the ceiling above you. Place the mask over your face. It will not inflate, but oxygen will be flowing.

Yes, the ramped barrels often need more slope than they have out of the box. If you shoot round nose exclusively it may not ever be apparent.
