    Hey, everyone who has ever wanted to meet up with us and wasn't able to for whatever reason (transportation, weather, girlfriend, etc.)!

    You are still welcome and you don't need to explain yourself here. If you simply must explain yourself, show up next time with some cool toys to share and explain yourself then ;-) .

    Anyone interested in trying out USPSA match this saturday? I'm gonna go for my first time with some people from SIG forum.

    Mike & Ken, check your PM's, I've sent you details there.

    Details to the Shoot.
    http://sigforum.com/groupee/forums?a=tpc&s=674608412&f=320601935&m=549106035&r=627103135#627103135

    The BEST overview to get your started in USPSA/IPSC/IDPA
    http://sigforum.com/groupee/forums/a/tpc/f/430601935/m/531103825

    On the 2nd link you'll see Pointman1776 try to recruit new shooters to the sport. He'll coach us through our first action shoot, so we wont go there blind as a bat...

    Shoot starts at 8:30 at Rahaauges range in Norco. All the info is on there.

    You'll need:

    Gear: Basically, just what's listed here:
    (Section 8: Getting Started = http://sigforum.com/groupee/forums/a/tpc/f/430601935/m/531103825/r/491103825#491103825)
    1. Pistol: A basic and reliable pistol that YOU are familiar with and comfortable shooting is all you need; if you are familiar and comfortable with the operation of your Les Baer (loading, unloading, operation of the manual safety, clearing jams, etc.), then you'll be in great shape.
    2. Strong-side belt holster
    3. Belt: A good sturdy belt is all you need to get started.
    4. Ear Protection
    5. Eye Protection
    6. Pen
    7. Ammo = about 250 rounds (5 boxes of 50 rounds is recommended, just to be on the safe side so you don't run out)
    8. Mags: 5 or 6 mags if have them (I can bring spares of extra mags if you need them - I have mags for just about every gun ever made)
    9. Mag Carriers/Pouches: 3 or 4 or however many you have
    10. Bag to hold it all (and a lock for transport)

    Oh yeah, if you have a 1911, bring it. You can shoot against me in the Limited 10 division, otherwise you'll be shooting in the Production class.

    It'll be fun, I'm hoping to get some people I at least know so I'm not surrounded by a buncha SIG feins! :)

    For more information you can either PM me, Email me (best) or any questions ask Pointman1776 on SIGForum with either of the 2 links above.

    ooooooh yeah..... :D

    I've been to a 3-gun match at Rahaauges a long time ago (with Skunk no less!) and it was way cool!

    I'll have to see what my schedule is like, but I hope I can make it!

    I don't think I'm up to IDPA matches- especially since I've just got a revolver.

    Sorry for missing you guys at San Gabriel. I actually made it out there, but the girlfriend wanted to tag along, and she ended up getting all emotional and needy. Now I am up to my eyeballs in work. Good luck on the competition.

    Me, too! Waitaminute. . . we can't both be last place, can we? I'll shoot one of my CZ75s and be in last place in that class, and you can be last place in the 1911 class. :neener: :D

    You have to come, if only to take the pictures to share with the rest of the group. ;)

    Besides, we all have to start somewhere. . .

    That was pretty darn awesome! We'll have to do that again. I managed to make it thru the entire day only shooting one "hostage" (and I just winged him in the shoulder). :uhoh:

    I would have went but no one invited me! But seriously I've been too busy buying guns on my free time and my other hobby has also been eating precious free time and $ kind of just like how women seem to do that to me too, no wonder I'm not married:D

    New additions to the collection I'll bring to the next shoot possibly include a 380acp Russian Makarov, a Winchester 1400 12 ga and a 1907 Roth Steyr( anybody know about those things?)

    Hey guys...

    Here is the thread on SIGForum for our USPSA shoot. I'm trying to get another go for USPSA so we can all go together as a group. It'll be a LOT of fun!

    http://sigforum.com/groupee/forums/a/tpc/f/320601935/m/549106035

    Here are some pics from the USPSA Match courtesy of our instructor "Pointman1776" on SIGForum.


    From left: Pointman1776 (USA hat), emilsal, Mike Voigt, gene512, "KL", Black Majik

    IMG_4509_640x480.jpg

    gene512 rockin'...

    IMG_4496_640x480.jpg

    Black Majik smokin'...

    IMG_4506_640x480.jpg

    "KL" blastin'...(this is a great pic - it captured the slide just as it started its recoil cycle - notice the case is just starting to eject from the port of KL's CZ75)

    IMG_4540_640x480.jpg

    This is how the day started, bright and early, with a mini-sledge mallot and a recalcitrant Kydex holster (notice the shadow outline of the holster on the table top) and me whackin' the living daylights out of that holster trying to get it down the belt (the belt loop was just the tiniest bit too small for the belt we were using.)
    No, this is NOT the Ready Tactical holster but a holster from a different manufacturer. The Ready Tactical holster fit PERFECTLY!
    Yes, Kydex IS that STRONG!!

    IMG_4485_640x480.jpg

    Pre-shoot stage walk-through.
    Notice that gene512 is already displaying tricks of an "old hand" by using his mag as a prop to help him visualize a sight picture.
    Also notice that those two targets on the left and two more on the right are VEEEEERRRRRRRRRYYYYYY far away.
    After we were all done shooting, those poor "hostages" (white-target "no-shoots") were...well...let's just say we decided that they were employing psychological trickery on us and were the REAL "bad-guys" and needed to be taken out. We felt decidedly better after that.

    IMG_4525_640x480.jpg

    gene512 (left), "KL" (kneeling), Black Majik (right), and emilsal (behind Black Majik) walking through the stage, determining the acquisition sequence of the targets, where to reload, looking for "hidden" targets that are only visible from a different shooting location and angle, etc.

    IMG_4528_640x480.jpg

    Steely-eyed and double-tap-master emilsal quietly assessing his own secret shooting strategy.

    IMG_4530_640x480.jpg

    Some fellow shooters shooting from within one of the stage props:

    IMG_4510_640x480.jpg

    Next shooter is..."Tiger"!!! He's 9 years old, and that's not a cap-gun folks, that's a full power XD-9 in 9mm...and he's GOOD.

    IMG_4513_640x480.jpg

    Black Majik rocketing up from the armchair, drawing his pistol, and preparing to fire through the window in the block wall house. In this pic, Black Majik demonstrates just one example of the EXCELLENT safety discipline observed and displayed by of ALL the shooters this day as his finger is OFF THE TRIGGER and alongside the frame/slide exactly as demanded by The 4th Law of Gun Safety - Keep Your Finger Off The Trigger Until Your Sights Are On The Target!

    IMG_4532_640x480.jpg

    gene512 in action:

    IMG_4543_640x480.jpg


    ...and can somebody tell me what the hell this was supposed to be???

    Yeap, Michael Voigt was gracious enough to briefly chat with us and pose for a photo. :cool: Apparently he is a 1911 fan and I was forced to tell him that mine was unfortunately "in the shop." :eek: Well, I got my Colt back from my gunsmith that same afternoon and I can't wait to try it out with the new barrel.

    Anyways, I guess now is as good a time as any to announce the next SGVGC shoot:

    Next SGVGC THR Shoot will be Sunday, April 9, 2006 at 12 Noon

    I'm bringing my Colt this time, so let's make it a 1911 Festival since I know quite a few of you have at least one. So if you have one, bring it out!

    (Oh, and if you don't have a 1911, you are still welcome to attend but be warned, Black Majik may try to convert you :uhoh: )

    I may try to make it. My buddy's bachelor party is the night before though.:) :barf: :)
    No need to convert me, I've been saving for a SA 1911 for a while now, I want it bad! All I have now is a BHP clone in 9mm, alas no high-tech, competition holsters or mag keepers.

    Are you guys shooting just HG's or are rifles welcome too?

    Oh, for sure bring your rifles. One of the cool things about SGVGC is that you can use the same lane to shoot a pistol or a rifle (shortest distance is 50 feet, then 25 yards, then 50 yards, then 100 yards). There is a section for 200 yard shooting, but I've never used it. BTW, if you look at some of the previous posts, you'll see that we bring many rifles out. :D

    As for April 9th, I'll bring my CZ452 Lux and my Cal-legal AR, as well as a C&R rifle but I haven't decided on which one to bring out yet.

    Looking forward to seeing a few new faces, as well as some old ones :cool: .

    I guess this will be the time to say. IM IN! :D

    I wont badger anyone that doesn't have a 1911 at the shoot. I think we have plenty to go around :D

    More 1911s welcome though! :p

    Simon,
    Definitely try to come out. We're a good buncha people. We shoot both handguns and rifles, so if you have a lotta rifles... all good!

    Oh no! Ken's bringing the 452. A lot of my time is gonna be allocated to shooting that.... I love that thing.... :D

    See ya all on the 9th!

    Anyone know where I can get non-magnetic 8mm Mauser?

    I've got buttloads of Turk 8mm, but it attracts a magnet and is a no-no at SGVGC.:mad:

    Not sure of the answer to your question James, but most likely not. They're pretty picky about steel magnetic ammo over at SGVGC.



    Just a heads up, I just got inside word that there might be a Comptac Group Buy being started at SIGForum. We just missed the THR GB by a few days, and another one will most likely be starting shortly over at SIGForum.

    THR Comptac GB
    http://thehighroad.org/showthread.php?t=187899

    I'm gonna jump in on the SIG GB for our future USPSA shoots. Woot! :D

    I'll keep you guys updated as I find out more.

    You want the Yugoslavian 8mm surplus ammo. While it is corrosive, it is brass cased, copper jacket, and lead core. It does not attract a magnet.

    Last I checked, aimsurplus.com had some, as well as ammoman.com

    I've tried the 50's production and the 70's production and the newer stuff looks better (with shiny clean brass), but I haven't noticed a difference performance-wise. Hmmm. . . maybe I'll bring one of my Mausers out as well.
