    Ginawa ko nang general thread about ipsc at mababaw lang tanong ko
    Nobody could give me a definite answer

    I've got an old model super ghost , the kind you have to drill a hole in your guns trigger guard
    Hindi ba illegal magdrill ng butas sa trigger guard? Di ba considered yun as illegal modification ng baril?

    depends on which division you are shooting. I'm assuming you are asking about production. IN standard and open it should not be an issue but in production it probably is.

    02. Can I add weights to the bottom of my OFM magazines, provided they don't increase capacity?
    03. Can I use aftermarket springs in my OFM magazines, provided they don't increase capacity?
    04. Can I paint, flare, file, enlarge and/or shave the inside of my magwell?
    05. Can I paint the inside of my magwell so that I have something to aim at when reloading?

    Hmmm, I was under the impression that grip tape has been allowed for production (i.e. Glocks) and similarly, fiber optic open sights.
