Winter hurts shooting skills
#1
Ok, I know you guys that have 'winter' and it is 60+ degrees may not understand. During the December-February time frame, my shooting drops down to once a month.

I went and shot an IDPA match last night and didn't make it into the top 10. I was moving slow and my first stage, I forgot what that orange thing on the end of the barrel was for.

Anyway, I encourage everyone to get out practice, practice, and then practice a little more.

I here ya.   I haven't shot a gun since deer season, last November. Went up to my hunting property yesterday and there was still 6" of snow on the ground. Had to 4 wheel it to get back to the cabin.   I took my Kel tec SU16 and my Polymer 80 glock to test.  Both functioned fine.  Also checked my game cameras (lots of deer, a few foxes).

How the polymer 80 function?

We definitely get winter here, but plenty of indoor opportunities to keep sharp. I run Defensive Pistol matches indoors every Saturday so, on a bad month, I'm shooting 350rds in competition.

Everything worked.  I ran about 100 rounds through it. Had a couple FTFs at first and I short stroked the trigger a couple times. After the first mag it shot well. I have the old style P80 frame which I bought cheap. It is even more blocky than the original glock frame (if that is even possible) but it shot like a regular glock. I was using my G22 barrel and slide on it. 

The only point of doing an 80% frame is if you want a gun w/o a serial number or want a custom pistol that you made yourself.  As prices continue to fall on aftermarket glock parts I may put together another Poly 80. The next one will likely be a G19 type.

Good to hear. I have thought about doing one, just never have got motivated.

I'd need to get more educated on this type of build before trying it.
