Cool videos. Tell us more about your gun. Is that Trojan a 9mm or 40?


Thanks, it's a Trojan in 9mm. Love it. Grips are VZ, extended STI mag release, SVI long flat trigger, Techwear SP mag well, 10LB recoil spring and 15LB mainspring. Other then that it's stock. It's by far the most fun to shoot. Thanks for watching.

No....no time....I gave it up in the late 90's to teach more....only so much vacation time ya know.....I did ok I guess in fact when I quit I was shooting 94.73 in open and 93.65 in limited.... (just went and looked it up ....lol) Now I'm like a .45....old, fat, and slow.... :? My USPSA number is 4319 and I remember one year when I was renewing the gal on the other end of the phone said "Wow that's an old one."..... :oops:

Shot the nationals several times and even won a stage outright once.

I can tell you this......"The older I get, the faster I was!!!!"................ :lol:

LOL!! I like your quote. I'm hoping to get in to Open next year. Pockets aren't deep right now so I have to save but it looks like fun.

I shot way more open than limited....Started out with a 5" colt .45 (before there was such a thing as limited), then to a Clark Pin gun in .45, then to a Wilson L/E Comp gun in 38 super, then an Aimpoint on top of that, then a Heinie built Tripp frame hi cap......

I know about the deep pockets of which you speak.....lol

Staysafebob, how did you like shooting through a Aimpoint?

As the year is almost to a end so are the match's here in the PNW. I shot Rentons last USPSA match of the year. It was a 277 round match with 7 stages but I only got vid of 6. Didin't shoot that well. Stage one kicked my butt bad. I don't know how but still managed to come in 1st overall in L10 shooting minor. Thanks for watching.

Nice video.thanks for that.

Shooting through an Aimpoint was fine but required a consistant presentation with a motionless head to see a dot asap. It worked just fine once you got used to it.

Hi VR4,
If you want a great practice session once a month, I run a turning target practice at the Kenmore Range. It's 25yds shooting timed (20seconds) and Rapid (10 seconds) in 5 shot strings. Always on the 1st Saturday of every month from 09:00-12:00 and cost is $10.00. You can stay the rest of the day if you want. Open to all comers from all shooting disciplines.
It's geared mainly for Bullseye & International shooters, but from watching your great videos it would be good for your strong and weak hand practice and maybe for better runs on those long distance plates!!! :D
Wish I could still run!
Great videos,
Wes

Took a 5 month break from shooting as I got burned out. Got a lot done around the house in that time so I thought I'd get back out and have some fun. Changed the intro cuz I was getting asked when I was coming back. Thanks for watching.
