CYA Guns & Indoor Shooting Range in Forney

This is a relatively new range. CYA has been in place for a few years, their indoor gun range has been open for about a year now, I believe. I paid a visit awhile back. Fees are reasonable--in line with what other indoor ranges charge in the area. No membership is required, but if you wish, they hav...

Re: Lonestar Gun Club (Mesquite) foreclosed - new possible owners

I looked into this range as it is fairly close. The range fees were prohibitive, IMO.

WOW!!! Midway donates $100K to TSRA

This may not be exactly the proper place to post this. My wife and I attended the TSRA Foundation Banquet last night. Midway USA (Larry Potterfield) sent a representative to the meeting to present a $100,000 check for use in TSRA youth programs. To say that those in attendance were impressed would b...

Re: Does your Carry/Defense Semi-Auto Function Flawlessly?

IF I have had to use 1000 rounds in a firefight I would have already either called 911 or Ellington Field for an airstrike. The point isn't that anyone expects to shoot 1000 rounds in an SD/HD situation, the point is that this is a way to show up minor issues that might not otherwise be noted at al...

Re: Does your Carry/Defense Semi-Auto Function Flawlessly?

Is there going to be a 2010 shoot???? At this time, the plan is to continue having these matches annually. I don't understand the point of this. If you have a CHL you should have a working knowledge of your firearm and its reliability with the ammo that it will shoot. Relying on some sort of test i...

Re: Does your Carry/Defense Semi-Auto Function Flawlessly?

Results are in! The only gun to finish the match malfunction free was a G17 purchased used by the current owner. Rather than cross-post a bunch of information, I'm just going to provide a link to the results. I will be updating the results as I continue to sift through the data collected at the matc...

Re: Wolf 9mm steel cased

In last year's ISHOT1000 match (a 1000 round reliability match) only two guns shooting factory ammunition had more than 20 malfunctions. One was badly overlubricated and the other was shooting steel-cased Wolf ammunition. I would (have, in fact) use Wolf for practice ammunition, but I think most peo...

Re: Does your Carry/Defense Semi-Auto Function Flawlessly?

She didn't say the clinic she went to was "free". The point that DNS was making is that this match IS free. No range fees, no entry fees, no fees at all. AND, while the conventional wisdom says there's no such thing as a free lunch, last year's match proved that saying was incorrect, at least for t...

Re: Mount Your Light On Your Pistol Or Not?

Try to do some shooting in low light with your chosen carry gun/ammo combination. Then try using an attached light & a separate light. Both have advantages & disadvantages. The separate light will incur a time/accuracy penalty since you'll effectively be shooting one handed. The hand holding the lig...

Re: Does your Carry/Defense Semi-Auto Function Flawlessly?

If I were trying to garner valuable information in this arena, there would need to be a control for the variables like ammo. Finances do not allow the match organizer to provide identical ammunition to all the competitors at this time, but that variable is being controlled more tightly this year th...

Re: Does your Carry/Defense Semi-Auto Function Flawlessly?

I shot some hollowpoint ammo through my Glock 10mm at the match last year--one box of the PMC was 170gr JHPs. And yes, that much ammo (even in FMJ) does run into some cash. While you may have hardware failures, ammo is just as critical a factor in firearm function and the fault of a failure can't al...

Re: Does your Carry/Defense Semi-Auto Function Flawlessly?

My gun wasn't all that dirty after the match. I cleaned it at the same time that I cleaned another pistol that had been shot less than 300 times since its last cleaning. Fouling accumulation wasn't noticeably different although it did take longer to get the barrel clean on the 1K gun. Secondly, the ...

Does your Carry/Defense Semi-Auto Function Flawlessly?

So you have a carry gun that functions flawlessly? Or perhaps you have a new home defense handgun you would like to put through its paces to see how well it can perform? Then this will be a fun and informative match for you! 2008's ISHOT1000 match was a great time and yielded some interesting result...

There are 3 signs posted on the bank of entry doors (maybe 5 or 6 double doors--so around 10 or 12 doors and only 3 signs).

Re: So, you trust your centerfire semi-auto EXPLICITLY?

By the way, I shot a GSSF match the day following the 1000 round test. Shooting 1000 rounds in a day doesn't seem to have hurt my shooting skills much, I knocked over 30 seconds off my previous best score and had fewer penalties than ever before.
