re: First Time at Range USA on Millerville Road -- CORRECTION on Page 2 - JohnWicksDawg
[b]CORRECTION[/b]: You are correct about the rapid fire rule at Range USA -- I replied earlier saying there isn't one. I went there 2 days ago and saw message on the flat screen monitor - "[i]no rapid fire allowed[/i]." Since no one had mentioned it on my first visit, and since I shot sorta fast ...

re: Glock 43x/48 - Hellcat Pro - Sig P365 xMacro - JohnWicksDawg
The muzzle flash has already been mentioned - although it will vary greatly with different powders. I know of two instances where the shooter got debris (unburnt powder, burn powder ?) under his glasses and needed care from eye doctor for mild scratches. Both were with ported Glocks (One was .40 ...

re: Glock 43x/48 - Hellcat Pro - Sig P365 xMacro - JohnWicksDawg
The Shield 15 round mags (flush mount) are a good add-on. They cost more than a typical Glock mag, but probably no more than a SIG mag - and the G48 grip gives you a lot better firing grip w/ less muzzle flip than the P365 Hellcat. The G48 (w/ Shield mags) and the 365 Macro stack up pretty evenly...

re: First Time at Range USA on Millerville Road -- CORRECTION on Page 2 - JohnWicksDawg
I have zero financial connection with Range USA. But there were no rules prohibiting rapid fire, drawing from holster or bringing your own targets. Precision allows all this as well - but their layout/policies are still much less safe. Bridgeview used to (maybe still does) have a rapid fire ...
