1911 work in Louisville

So who do you recommend for 1911 work in Louisville right now? I have a Colt in .38 super and an aftermarket 9mm barrel. I need to have the barrel fitted to the gun.

Joe Barnsfather has done work on my 1911s and is currently building a new match gun for the Single Stack Classic for me. He does meticulous work and a barrel fit would be a snap for him. If you need his number, pm me.

Dom on a side note, check out the grips the guy in Frankfort uses by Wicked Grip. Go to their web site, they are some of the coolest I've seen.

Firearms Service Center fitted the barrel and it's running like a scalded dog now.

Revelation: I hate the 1911 grip safety. I am going to have to have the safety pinned...or something. I think the colt's next tune up will be some quality time with Joe Barnesfather for a new ignition system/action job and maybe he can come up with a solution for my grip safety woes. If I can't run it in USPSA Single Stack with a pinned safety I'll just have to start shooting ESP in IDPA.

Dom, that is a Wilson drop in grip safety that has never been fitted or adjusted. Combining that with the arched mainspring housing means you really have to push in to get it to release. If you keep the Wilson safety, some internal adjustment where it meets the back of the trigger would allow it to release sooner and it would work great. They generally need ot be fitted a little, but I never got around to it. Either that or go back to the straight mainspring housing. One of the reasons people like the straight MS housing is it is easier to push in the grip safety, but with slight fitting the little hump on the Wilson will allow it to work with the arched MS.

I don't think he is a convert he just saying that with the safety the way it is, its slow to shoot, and he might as well shot IPDA with it.

I have yet to shoot an IDPA match so I do not know firsts hand but it sounds like you are saying that a gun too slow to shoot single stack in USPSA would be OK to shoot IDPA? Or am I reading too much into this?

They just don't possess the focus it takes to shoot an IDPA match, so they poke fun at it.

When shooting IDPA, you will, most likely at first, need to shoot slower so you can actually be able to execute all of the required moves while being accurate instead of just missing fast.

Don't get me wrong. I do enjoy shooting USPSA, too, but IDPA requires more focus and concentration on how and what you're doing since it is more structured. To use a dance analogy, it's more of a classic ballet instead of a expressionistic street dance. Different forms, both fun to participate in and watch, but requiring different focus and discipline.

Dean, I'm not sure about the dance illustration. I think it's more a case of you need to make sure your little finger and not your index is in your left nostril while drawing and shooting at a target. Hence you have to be slower so you don't fall and do brain damage.

If IDPA stands for I don't practice anymore then does USPSA stand for Unholster shoot pray shoot again ?
