Torn between divisions...
Posted 25 June 2012 - 09:19 AM
I am planning on shooting my first USPSA match on Thursday. I can't decide whether I should start out shooting single stack or production. I have roughly 5k of components for the 1911 minus brass (I probably have 2500 or so pieces)- and some of the matches I shoot are lost brass matches. Ammo for me is cheaper in .45 as I have a good amount of lead and can cast the bullets I need. I shoot the 1911 much better, and the glock has the dot connector and night sights- the 1911 is the clear game gun for me. I am set up to reload both calibers, and I can make kydex mag pouches for either set up. Either way I need a couple more mags so that doesn't play into the equation.
I am looking for opinions. I feel like running the 1911 would help me to be able to focus on the the movement, stage breakdown, reloads, etc while still being able to get solid hits. It would also help me as I can shoot CA Legal division at local 3 gun with the 10 rd mags. The Glock, for me, takes a lot more effort in managing the fundamentals to get hits, and I am generally a bit slower with it. The extra difficulty in managing the fundamentals may make me a better shooter. I will try both divisions to find out where I fit best, but I want to pick one and stick with it for the next at least 6 months or so, and maybe longer.
Which division would you start in, and why? It seems most people start in production, but already have a few years behind the 1911 and only a few months with the Glock.

I have a set of no-gap basepads on the way for my Dawson no-gap magwell, so I'm hoping to play a little bit in the single stack division locally. We'll see how that goes.

Still shooting SS cuz that's what i love.
I'd recommend going with SS and see how you like it. You can always change up and shoot Production with a different holster and mag pouches.
