Sure do. Its never been an issue. I run the extended mag release as well.

Do you have small hands? I just grabbed it and checked, and it sits just below my strong hand thumb, if I gripped a little lower, I would probably hit it, but again, its never been an issue.

Well I have average to small I guess. I wear medium gloves at work, but small winter gloves.

On my 26 it hits in the same spot, its just not an issue because its the flat lever. One of two things happen its either my strong hand thumb or the first knuckle of my weak hand thumb that touch it.

I may end up changing the mag release lever this week. I noticed I was really stretching to hit it during some reloads this weekend.

The Glock extended mag release helped my reloads a lot. I was having to break my grip to push the button.

Got pic's of my new toy's first outing, 10 MM glock 20SF 75rd group at 20 yards fast string's of 15 shot's. Not bad for a first firing and cheap ass ammo. Lower group is my friend's new ruger SR9C, 10 round group at same distance.

12 ga NEF pump

And have been shooting this a lot lately, I'm probably going to buy it since my friend offered it to me for $125.....



Ruger 22/45 target model, it's nice to put holes in paper all day for $20.

IDPA last night. I shot my carry gun (Glock 19) from my crossbreed supertuck. Took 5th out of 30ish shooters. I've been pushing myself to go faster, and its starting to pay off. And RRT, yes, I should have been given a PE for round dumping, I dont care, I was having fun..lol

Have you even watched any of my vids? If you need two I put 4

And I can't find anything about round dumping in the rule book so you're good to go.

Also, if I'm picking nits..... I couldn't tell who was telling you to move on stage 3. If it was the RO tell him to pound sand, there is no speed requirement when in motion, only that you are moving. Hell on fast moving targets while I'm moving I literally take like 3 inch steps. I'm moving, just not very fast. Then I take off like a bat out of hell after I hit the target.

It looked good except for facing the wrong direction

I found the round dumping thing under the FTDR rule. Thats fawkin retarted.

I do that on almost every stage, if you don't its your own fault. What are you going to do on a target that pops out when you just put 3, 4, and 3 into the first 3 targets.

I will never give someone a ftdr for that. Plus, how do I as a SO prove you weren't just making up shots?

Stupid rule, pay no attention to it

Seems nice so far, shot it a few times today, thru the chrono a few times. Idk about the sight, I'm used to a single pin adjustable. The bow is serial number 000025


The only issue I see with the winchester bows is that they use stainless steel hardware as the limb bolts, and I cant seem to get them to turn out, or back in if they do turn out- Might have to press my bow and take the strings off to see if they will turn out with no load on them and put some kind of anti seize in there.
