    People think I'm crazy but I've been using my G21SF w/ barsto barrel and sheaer plug in limited standard due to my natural disadvantage. I think that it ain't and that the real reason behind my poor performance is due to my lack of practice and detail into my pre-competition preparation (loads etc.)

    Comments anyone?

    I use the exact same set up for USPSA and run Lim 10 and do pretty good. I chose the 21sf as the best balance for a 45acp gun that will I can CCW and compete with. I dont care much about scoring but want to be able to shoot my CCW gun really well and I think I made a great choice with the 21sf. I would say if you are wanting to score high then yes you are at a disadvantage. Just the slow slide movement let alone the recoil of a 45 adds time to your score and you cant double tap as fast as the other guys.

    I'm guessing "limited standard" is some class in some kind of competition but I have no idea what your "natural disadvantage" might be. Having been around for the founding of IPSC & IDPA plus competing in steel combat shoots and even Police Revolver (PPC) matches, I can pretty well guarantee the gun you shoot has little or nothing to do with your performance. I've seen any number of really good shooters win with sub-standard weapons. Likewise, I've seen duffers with top of the line custom guns finish in last place more often I can remember. If you don't practice (including mental preparation for competition) you won't do well no matter what gun you use.
