    I have one but since it is post Heliban, I had JP assemble it on a JP lower I had in stock and used a Rock River arms 9mm adapter for Colt mags. I bought a few ancient but mint 32 round Uzi mags, and adapting them to fit that EBR (but without last round hold open). This was short work for a friend's $300K or so Japanese milling machine. The setup works flawlessly, and I don't have to choose between ignoring the mag ban or chasing down unobtainium $$$ pre-ban Glock 33 rounders.

    What hurts is my JP AR9 SBR arrived at GFA Armstech on the day of the Heliban, and it was not possible to take possession on the last legal day because of the form 1 time delay. Greg at GFA liked it so much he wrote out a check to JP for the full retail price to add it to his collection.

    I'm planning on shooting as much PCC as I can this year. They are a blast!

    I've seen people look down on others for gear (and express this sentiment), but not for choice of firearm.

    I kind of want to try both PCC and revolver, but I don't anticipate shelling out the coin on either.
    Now that Pelham is apparently done, I'm not sure how many matches I will do this year, although I do have my MA non-res.

    Really like Kaw Valley carbon fiber hand guard and linear comp. Stern defense Mag well adapter rated the best and it is. You can always go to a dedicated lower but I had one and I like the idea of being able to convert back if I need to. If you have an AR upper you only need the barrel, they are the same. The buffer and buffer spring must be upgraded, blow back operation not gas block etc.

    I'm about 40-45 from Chester, 45-50 to Pioneer, and 30-40 to Harvard. Never been to any of them before so determining where to go, layout, etc. is always kind of a nuisance.

    Pelham was nice because among other things it was $10 and a 17 minute drive.

    I used to drive 90 minutes each way to shoot at New Bedford. They used to put on great matches. Now it's 15 to Harvard, 40 to Hopkinton, 90 to Monson, and 60+ to Pioneer

    You definitely need to check out Harvard and Pioneer. Can't comment on Monson as I don't shoot there (2 hours each way for me). I'm sure Monson runs a great match.

    I am probably going to give a match at Harvard a try, although I'll need to buy (I think) 3 more 10rd magazines since my 17rders will need to stay home.

    I've heard good things about Harvard in general. Hopefully it'll be easy to navigate.

    I'm the guy who sits in the trailer and does signups for the Harvard matches. I may be a bit biased, but I think we do a pretty good job :)

    We also have weekly practices from 5-7 PM on Wednesday evenings. We're in the indoor range in the clubhouse through the cold, dark winter but we'll be back outside once weather and range conditions permit. Feel free to show up to a practice if you're in the mood.

    Oh and for anyone else interested in practices, unfortunately the indoor range rules do not allow any rifles other than 22LR, so no PCCs at Wednesday practice until we move back outside.

    We don't do preregistration, just show up on match day and register there. I just added the May match to Practiscore so people can find the info there in addition to the uspsa-ne.org site. Yes, it is on May 12th.

    There's a possibility we will add an April match if the weather is unusually good and the ranges aren't horrible mud pits, but the May match will be the first one if not.

    Pelham would not have been lost if we got more help. Too many shooters wanting to just shoot and not help in an all-volunteer sport. The burnout is real for those who run matches. If you guys find yourself saying "damn, too bad they are done".. maybe there was something you could have done to help that match keep going.

    Doesn't sound like a good idea since the ejector is on the mag. During ULSC you will have to put a empty spare mag in to eject the last round

    Just seeing this post now but for the record last year was my first year doing USPSA and I went to Pelham twice, and did volunteer and help setup my second match there (last of the season). Was planning on helping again this year, but obviously moot at this point. I'm mainly bummed because I just found out they were doing it in like July, and now it's over. The class run in the spring would have been helpful as a new participant, had I known about it.

    I don't do facebook and other than NES I'm not really "hooked into the scene" so unless--as was the case with the Pelham match I helped at--there's an email sent or some other communication I don't really know what's going on. Just bummed, as I was feeling like I had "found a home" for USPSA and now I'm adrift again.

    Yeah whenever I make my (non) triumphant debut this year, it will probably be at Harvard.
