It is, yep. That's one of two compromises between Bullseye and action in this pistol. Having tried it both ways, the fiber front (though otherwise typical Bullseye in dimension) won't cost me much in...

Thanks!

Can you elaborate as to why? I don't understand why individual pouches are better, especially because I can put the 8-pouch right on my hip in what I'd think is the perfect spot (for pretty much all...

If anyone is wondering about the logic of any design choices, please feel free to ask. I wanted a factory-default safety lever on it because in Bullseye it doesn't matter at all and in USPSA I have...

+1 on the L10 mod, but I was going to say lying on a table a few feet away, and mag not inserted. That's far more "realistic" which I think IDPA cares about?

I have a Springfield .45 1911, factory-custom Bullseye gun. I bought it secondhand (for my wife) many moons ago, and it came with one magazine. She shot it sporadically but it has been a safe queen...

45 hardball is up around a 200PF (230gr, 850-900fps).

I shoot 45 and honestly the coolest thing about it is being able to use 200gr semiwadcutter bullets making the biggest damn holes in the...

Long Colt bullets for .45ACP?

This came up in a pinshooting thread, and it occurs to me that my question is much more appropriate here.

I'm getting ready to load up some rounds for pinshooting specifically rather than using...

Everyone I know shoots 185gr or 200gr SWC for .45 in Bullseye, with fairly light amounts of powder (for me, 4gr of WST under a cast 200gr H&G68).

I would expect that WC-smithed pistol to feed...
