Mike in Denton, TX sends in today’s Q&A question:
Just want to start out by saying that I love the show, you guys are very entertaining and informative even for a guy who hasn’t shot his first IDPA or USPSA match…. yet.
I have been shooting 3 gun and some outlaw USPSAish pistol and rifle competitions for about a year now at a local club. I am using a Gen 3 Glock 22 police trade in that I bought many years ago with a 9mm lone wolf conversion barrel in it.
I want to give USPSA a try and my question is why can’t I use this pistol in Production division? A Glock 22 and 17 are essentially the same gun size and weight wise. I do not see how changing my 22 into a 9mm puts me ahead of the guy next to me shooting a 17.
From what I can tell you can change the sights, trigger, and put griptape on your gun and it is still considered legal for production (correct me if I’m wrong here). What’s the big deal with changing the caliber is the gun is the same size?
Thanks for your time guys I really appreciate it,
Mike from Denton, Tx
