    A lot of what you need to know you can practice at home with snap caps and an unloaded gun. Draw, presentation, mag changes etc. I always joke that I do most of my practice in the bedroom :)

    It's not that bad, I usually go through about 80-90 rounds per match. The matches cost about $25.00. Cheaper than golf!

    No disadvantage, just a training issue. Both striker fired and DA/SA can be shot quite well with enough practice. I like both actually.

    It does depend on the pistol, but shooting under stress (ie competition), I find on the polymer pistols with the smaller slide releases it's better to rack the slide than to rely on the slide release...

    The only down side to the 605 is that if you "short stroke" it, it will bind up. Trigger reset is very important.

    I find the PT111 a perfect carry gun. I can't do IWB for some reason, so I use a Don Hume OT710 owb under a loose button down shirt. When I can't carry the PT111, I carry a Keltec P3AT in the pocket...

    I have one. I find it sticks out a little to much for ccw. A simply rugged silver dollar pancake turned out to be a better option. The fobus is good around the house/property though.

  16. Re: What's the best CCW holster for PT111? What do you guys use?

    Can't really help you out with IWB, but I use a don hume owb with a loose, lightweight button down shirt as a cover garment. I live in Florida and it gets pretty hot down here as well.
