    Now I see 1 rule to add next time - Once you post your target, that is your 1 entry

    Someone has been changing the target w/ better ones that they shot later

    Shipwreck, I apologize for my errors in posting in this contest. I did not fully understand the rules. If what I did is unfair in any way, please delete me out and I'll try again next month.

    Well, I had time to think about it - I did say ONE entry per person. I don't think that's fair to do that. Can U just put back your original target at 7 yards - your 1st one.

    Ok, I appreciate your good will

    Next month, as per request, we'll do one open to revolver and/or semi auto.

    Then in Aug, I think we'll do a subcompact one (Glock 26, P99c, USPc, Keltec, etc)

    Hell, I am amazed I did as well as I did at 15 yards :P - For me, that is awesome. I do most of my practicing at 7-10 yards.

    Hey, that's still not bad. That is a smaller piece of paper, and at least ya hit it 5 times. That's good enough.

    I did better than I thought I would, but I wouldn't have been able to get the 43 I did get had I used a different gun.

    I already have the rules set up for next month - 1 category for revolvers, and the other for semi-auto compacts. I'm sure I won't get a 43 next time

    I've always wanted to shoot better than I do - like Ocharry with that 50 score. But, alas, my hands won't copperate

    As for the 15 yards, I've shot guns in the past where I didn't even hit the paper on a large target

    You know, I think barrel length should be a consideration as well...maybe at some point anyway... I used my Kimber with the 4" barrel. I may go back tomorrow and see how I can do with my beretta 92 with the 5" barrel...at 7 yards. Not post the results, but just see how much of a difference there is... Of course, there may be no difference at all...I've only shot the Beretta once since I bought the Kimber...

    Well, I tend to not shoot as well w/ barrels under 4" - My SW99 is exactly 4 inches. Now, my G34 and HK USP fullsize are bother over 4", but I still do better w/ that 1 gun.

    I plan to go practice a lot w/ my USP compact in the future. Although, for next month, I think I'll use my compact p99.

    How often do you go shoot on average? I get out there about every 2 weeks, 3 weeks tops. And, the dry firing has helped me a lot.

    U got that sweet Kimber, ya gotta practice more :-D

    About every other week for me. What I need to get are some snap caps, the trigger feel is so different from anything else that I've shot. I'm on ebay looking for some right now...new of course...

    I also just ordered a new slide stop for the Kimber...from wilson combat. I'm having some issues with the slide locking back...with ammo still in the mag, not jamming or anything. Happened 3 times today and has happened a couple of other times.

    The snap caps cleaned me up, I'll tell ya - It made my groups tighter - I bought some at Gander Mountain for that 1911 I prev had. I found that even w/ practice on only 1 gun, the experience was passed on to all of them. I still practice w/ them now - lately it's been w/ my USPc.

    I would send ya some, but I was lucky to trade all my 45's for 9mm snap caps - so I no longer have a .45.

    I read what ya said about the slide stop - I responded. If that doesn't do it, try a different brand of mags, and then ya may have to send it back to Kimber. As frustrating as it is, that is a minor thing for them to fix. If ya had to have a problem, there are worse ones - failure to feeds, for instance...

    Is it w/ all of your mags, or just 1? Are all of your mags the same brand, or mixed?

    I prev had an Armory Koted TRP earlier this year. Mine wasn't as accurate as other 1911's I have had. Then, Tripp Research screwed up the refinish, and I got rid of it because I was fed up.

    Looks like yours is very nice, though :P

    Your killing me :-D - I've told the story so many times....

    Oh well... Someone PM'd me about it on another site last week - So, I just copied what I told him....
    -----
    Well, I've posted my neg experience a few times. I sent off my TRP for cobra coat on the slide and hard chrome on the rest. Basically, it came out terrible. Cobra coat had many flaws, and many hard chromed parts had copper colored spots on them. Plus, I had told them NOT to chrome the barrel and bushing, as they were already too tight. What did he do - he chromed them anayway. It took me 30 min to get the bushing out of the slide.

    I sent it back a 2nd time. The cobra coat was even worse than the 1st time, and it took about 5 weeks to get it back the second time. He also forgot to send back 1 part, and the sights no longer sat flush to the slide. They were marked from the 2-3 times he must have taken them off the slide (they really aren't made to be removed several times).

    I was so fed up that I ended up trading it. I didn't feel like sending it back a 3rd time. I would never send a complete gun to Tripp again.
