Congratulations on making Master, Joshua!
Thanks guys! Now starts the hard work of teaching my kids to address me as “master” instead of Dad.
Anytime I fix something around the house, or take care of some apparently impossible task, it has become a required tradition at my house that my kids or my wife must repeat this phrase to me, "Dad, you are a genius."
I can see "master" being used in your house, with some sort of bowing ritual.
lol-I could get used to that. Not sure I could get my wife in on it though!
Thanks for the videos.
And I have a question for anyone so inclined,
Concerning the BUG division, looking at the gun specs it "appears" that a S&W Shield would be legit to use.
But just to be clear, the height spec that I'm seeing for the shield is 4.6, which is less than 4.625 true,
but I don't know if that 4.6 is with the flush mag or extended mag.
So with the rules stating "with the largest magazine inserted", would the shield with the extended mag in it be legal for BUG division?
Or would I need to use all flush fitting mags?
I'm trying really hard not to make it overly complicated but I'm probably failing...
You can shoot a Shield in BUG. Just run what you brung.
We only load five rounds per mag in our matches in "Semi" so the J frame revolvers can compete on a more level playing field.
Cool deal. Thank you
I'm trying to convince my wife and mother-n-law to come to this match. We will not be drawing from a holster but from low ready correct?
Wife "I don't think my mom is ready to shoot a competition."
Me "But she's ready to defend her life in a violent encounter?"
Wife Blank stare....processing..."Ok I'll ask her!"
We have started drawing from a holster in our BUG matches but if she isn't comfortable doing that for her first match she can start from the low ready position.
Question about BUGs. Is the Glock 26 still legal? Do the ESP rules apply to it like CCP?
Kinda same thing here only it's me telling myself I need to be a better shooter before trying a match.
Then I had the "Aha" moment.
Maybe, just maybe, if I try it and like it, and continue to do it, I might become a better shooter!
8.2.8 Semi-Automatic BUG (BUG-S) Handguns permitted for use in BUG-S must:
Be single action, double action, double action only, or striker fired.
Use .380 ACP or larger cartridges.
Barrel length of 3 1/2" or less. 3.42
The unloaded firearm with the heaviest magazine must weigh 26 oz. or less. 26.1 oz. fully loaded, but this is 10 rounds (or 10 plus 1?). BUG is 6 (or 5 at H20)
The firearm with the largest magazine inserted must fit in the IDPA gun test box measuring 6 1/2" 6.41 x 4 5/8"4.17 x 1 3/8" 1.18.
Joshua, I inserted the specs from Glock's page here in red. Looks like the G26 is still fine for BUG.
Someone else will have to answer the question about ESP in CCP.
220.127.116.11 BUG-S Permitted Features and Modifications Semi-automatic BUG must comply with all ESP features and modifications, and equipment restrictions.
Thanks guys! Sorry @fieldgrade - was hoping someone just knew off the top of their head. Didn't mean to give you homework
I did a whole chart last year when the rules were changing on 6-7 popular BUG guns. It's what I do, lol.
