    I'm registered and classified for the OR state match. I decided on using the M40A1 with minor PF .40 loads, it's a 170 gr at about 845 fps. Seems to shoot well for me, and is soft. My 9mm load seems to be a bit inaccurate, and needs some work.

    ThaiBoxer -- If by chance you happen to see a relatively full-modified M40-A1 there at the tournament... one with a magna-ported barrel, with hard chromed slide and controls... and which has a 'speckled' sort of paint finish on its polymer lower (with matching mags), and with a Docter Red Dot optic on the slide.... PLEASE LET ME KNOW.

    I have a sinking suspicion that Springer Precision LLC (which also happens to be located in Oregon) might be dragging my pistol around to these such events... and either physically using it in the competitions, or having it out for sales display purposes.

    Like I said, if by chance you see a Steyr M40-A1 configured as mentioned, please let me know.... I would be hugely indebted to you.

    OK, I'll look. Ported barrels are not permitted in IDPA, so it would only be on the display tables.

    Springer Precison was there, and had XDs out. No Steyr. Scott Springer was there too. He had his little 3 mos old boy with him most of the time.

    Thanks again Ben.

    Sounds like a good time was had by all. Good to learn that Scott isn't... exploiting or otherwise wrongfully utilizing my M40-A1.

    Guess.... I should have my head checked. :p

    Gary, did you get your Steyr back, and how is it?
