I use my XD-9 Tactical for Production. It has a Dawson FO front sight, adjustable BoMar rear and a Canyon Creek trigger job.

For L-10, I use my Springer Black Stainless target model. It is set up nearly perfectly for USPSA right out of the box. The only mods made were a Bazos FO front sight, thicker grips, a trigger job and a one piece FLGR.

Both have worked very well for me.

So you shoot a minor caliber in limited? That's a gutsy move. I hope you have magazine extensions to at least bring you up to the 20 round mark per magazine.

More power to ya .

I use standard (limited) SPS PlusII .40SW with fiber front sight and 18rounds mags from sps also. Nice gun, and reliable.

The HighCap .40's seem to be the most popular for both Limited and Open Class, as they hold a few extra rounds, and generate some pressure for the comp guns.

I manage to squeek by with the 'ole fashioned .45 acp, albeit in a 14+1 capacity Para P14!

I don't think you'll find too many Open 40's, altho' I do know of one up in NOVA. Most are 38 Supers or some rendition of 38 SuperComp, TJ, etc.

Limited *AND* Open? Are you crazy?

I know of one single shooter in Colorado, Wyoming, and New Mexico that shoots an Open 40. He only does so he didnt have to invest in new mags when he switched over to Open.

Nationally I think Beven Grams is one of very few that shoot an Open 40.

Open 40 is a great way to handicap yourself even before the buzzer goes off.

Joe- different tack here; if you're new to the sport just go to a match and use whatever you have at the time. A Les Baer is a Single Stack or Limited 10 pistol, so you don't really have to spend big moola to get into either of those categories.

Barrett, lone Team Norinco Holdout.


P.S.
I really want to get a Baseball hat that says 'Team Norinco', but I'm too cheap to do that, henceforth the reason I shoot a Norinco. (that and the fact it handled better than the 1400$ rock river I just sold)

First, decide what class/division you are going to shoot. You can spend as much as you like, but for Limited, I would go with a Dawson STI in .40 or a Glock 35 with some work and Grahm basepads on the magazines. For Limited 10, you can shoot that Dawson STI, a G-35, a SIG P220 SA, or a single-stack 1911 .45/.40/10mm with 10-round magazines. For production, you can shoot a G-34 or any other 9mm pistol that you like. (You can shoot a major caliber if you like, but will not be scored any more than a minor caliber in Production, so why bother?)

Regards,
Andy

Well, I'm just getting started (still buying gear and practicing before entering my first match), but these are what I have for shooting different classes...

Limited & L10 minor
EAA Witness Elite Match .38super

L10 major and SS
Dan Wesson Pointman 7 .45acp

Production
CZ75 SP01

In the future, I may buy a 10mm top end for my Witness and shoot it in Limited & L10 major, then put a compensator on the .38super and install optics if I want to try open. I've been thinking about a revolver as well, but that will have to wait a bit. The only pistol I purchases specifically for IPSC/USPSA was the SP01, the others I just wanted and enjoy. Well, I can't say that I enjoy the PM7 yet, it is on order, but I've always enjoyed shooting 1911s.
