It seems that everyone I have noticed doesnt put much in a pistol. I think in some matches it can be the edge one needs. I am thinking a taran glock34 could be the answer.

As I mentioned in another thread, from the matches that I've attended, a good score with a pistol can separate 1st and 2nd place.

Rarely does it separate 20th and 21st.

Invest your time, money, and training budget accordingly.

Doesn't matter what you shoot. Practice is practice. I wouldn't want to compete against Carlos Hathcock in a bench rest comp. my AI vs his 6x scoped m70. It's the user. Not the gun.

I'll be running a G17 for the SD match and my girlfriend will be running a 19 (if there are pistol stages).  If the 17 is more accurate/consistent with my suppressor, then I will be running the 17 with a suppressor.
It pays to be a winner.

I don't think the SD match is gonna have any pistol.

Not to mention that matches that do have pistol, you can't really use a can since you have to holster the pistol.

Unless you've got a suppressor holster?  I've been trying to find one for a WHILE for my 226, without any luck...

I have one of the Crye Precision pistol holsters for a Glock. Great for pistols with lights and suppressors.

I just went and looked it up.  Looks neat, but it snaps?  I imagine reholstering is not that easy?

Some matches dont. The New Mexico match says to bring a pistol but no holster. Apparently we are just picking it up off a table or something and putting it back down after.

It has retention while unsnapped.  Though the snap makes it completely secure.  It does take a little practice and it is a bit slower than a standard holster.

I like that I can configure it to run vertical on a belt or horizontal on a vest for a "cross draw" type set up.  It can also be set up at an angle as well.

Interesting.

I've only shot one match that required a pistol.  IIRC the rules were it had to be a retention holster, and if the pistol came out of your holster at any time it was a DQ.

Drawing and reholstering were on the clock.

If that Crye holster meets the requirements, I'd sure like to see one for a 226 here soon...
