ChronoDude Report from the Alabama Sectional:

The Alabama Sectional Match was held this weekend, again at Dan Mitchell's Dothan Gun Club.  The stages were a challenging mix of physical courses that Dan is famous for designing.  The high-capacity Division winnders (Open, Limited, PCC, and Carry Optics) were all within 10% of each other, which shows balance in the match.  Capacity was an advantage though, as the top Production Shooter only had 78% of the top score.  Several of our local shooters did very well, including Johnny Reed winning A Class in Open Division.

I was the Chrono guy again.  I was pleasantly surprised to see that nobody showed up with some "post-April modifications" to their Production and Single-Stack guns (some rule changes are effective in April, but not yet).  I could just hear it: "But I read it on the Interwebz...."

We only had two "issues":  One guy showed up with a Vickers Tactical Special Glock 19.  It has a few mods that a distributor tacked on.  He assumed that he was using a "factory-available" gun, so it HAS to be legal.  Wrong.  This thing came with a grip insert that extends well below the frame (picture a plastic "Seattle Slug"), so it was getting ready to be declared an Open Division gun when the unlikely happened....  He went sub-Minor on the Chrono also.  His ammo, which likely would've make Power Factor in a Glock 17, just wouldn't make speed in the short barrel.

We had one more shooter go sub-Minor in a PCC.  He'd tested his ammo in his 16-inch gun, then switched to a 14.5-inch when the 16 started jamming just before the match.  It wasn't even close.  I suspect that the short barrel was also looser, because we later tested his ammo through the 16 and it was a 18 Power Factor increase.  That's too much of a difference to be accounted for by just 1.5 inches.
The weather was great.  Friends were seen.  In all, I had a great time!!

Remington TAC-14:

I just got a Remington TAC-14 in to do some T&E work for a high-end customer.  Of course, I am going to play with it, right?

My first impression was, "How is this legal?  It's only got a 14-inch barrel and last time I looked, that was almost the definition of an NFA shotgun.  Well, a company called ShockWave has found a little nuance in the law.  If the entire package is more than 26 inches long, it can be classified not as a shotgun, but as a "firearm".  It will be carried in the A&D Book as an "Other" and transferred on a 4473 as "Other".  (If you want to research this on your own, Google "How is Shockwave legal?" and it'll bring up a plethora of explanations.)

Shooting it was fun.  Simply hip-shooting from 7 yards was simple.  Recoil with Remington Low Recoil 00 Buck and 1 Oz. Slugs was manageable.  On the way to the range, one of my friends asked, "Are you gonna try to qualify with it?".  I originally said "No", because the course requires 25 yard slug shooting.  In the back of my mind, this became a challenge....

To give a little background, my Dad bought me a little shooting gallery when I was about 5.  It had a pump-action "rifle" that shot those little suction cup darts and it had bullseyes and little spinner targets.  I don't think that I learned to use the sights on that gun, I just shot everything off the hip. Chuck Connors could do it.  Why couldn't I?".  So, I developed an almost uncanny ability to hit things from the hip.

I didn't burn down the qualification course.  I got a 50 out of 60, which does qualify.  I was surprised.  I hit two of the four slug shots at 25 yards, even though I was afraid to bring the gun up to eye level.  I brought the Shockwave grip up to my pectoral and let 'er rip.

All-in-all, I was happy with it out of the box, but I see some modifications coming.  A pistol-stabilizing brace will be the first add-on, followed by some sort of light/laser combo (probably another Streamlight TLR-2G).  I am undecided about adding choke tubes yet.  If the laser solves the aiming issue, I might install Rem-Chokes to tighten the pattern up, making errant pellets a thing of the past.


Gun Cleaning Special:  Get the full-house, world-renowned CCGW cleaning job on your match guns, carry pieces, and hunting guns.  Most every gun will be only $25 each; complicated guns slightly higher.  (Glocks, M&Ps, 1911s/2011s, and the like are simple.  Benelli M-4s, piston-driven ARs, etc. are NOT.)  Turn-around time is typically less than a week.

We are offering complete basic guns built on our Camp Creek Gunworks-branded Lower Receivers, in addition to the full-house competition guns that we've always offered.  We're calling these mil-spec guns the "Basic Defense" series.  They feature a 16-inch barrel with A2 flash hider, a flat-top upper receiver, free-float handguard, collapsible stock, mil-spec trigger, mil-spec pistol grip, and the Magpul MOE trigger guard.  Add a soft case and 30-round MagPul magazine.  Of course, like all CCGW products, they're backed by our "We'll make it right" warranty.  The price is only $749 plus tax. 

Our latest thing has been PDWs (Personal Defense Weapons).  These are built off of our CR-15 lowers and feature short barrels (length depends on caliber and your desired features).  A pistol-stabilizing brace is added for greater accuracy potential.  5.56mm and .300 Blackout guns get the Noveske KX-5 suppressor.  9mm's don't need it.  An upgrade to a folding stock model is available for $300 more.  Prices start at $1500 for a basic model and go up to $3750 for the top-of-the-line model with EOTech HoloSight, TLR-2G light/laser combo, backup sights, premium SB Tactical brace, upgraded trigger, and custom fit case.

We have a 6-inch 2011 in-stock in .40 S&W.  It is built light, so it swings well from target to target.  The extra sight radius makes mid- and long-range shots EASY.  Only $2700

CCGW PCC's suitable for USPSA or 3-Gun competition are available.  Got one ready-to-go now for $950!

Glock 22C:  These are Blue Label Glocks (3 mags & night sights).  Brand new in the box for $499 plus tax.
