At the point when I feel that my equipment is truly hindering my further progress then it will be time for a change.

This of course becomes a moot point if I walk into one of my LGSs and happen upon a smokin hot deal.
You would be surprised how the right equip can make all the difference. I had an STI custom in 40. Prior to that I spend a few months building a g35. It started as a limited gun then grew to an open. I went shooting with a buddy and he had a custom STI... g35 was sold almost immediately and STI was purchased. The difference in how I could shoot the STI was night and day.

That being said, if the limited custom guns are not in your budget, there are a ton of great shooters that run production. Some because of budget, some because they shot limited or open and like the added challenge of simple.

The trick is simply finding the production gun that YOU can shoot well. Might be a Glock, maybe the MP.

I think the best bang for the buck is going with the CZ platform.

Have fun and focus on shooting before you dump money into a gun because someone else said it is the bomb. It may be for them and not work at all for you.

At the end of the day learn to shoot the courses safe. Getting a DQ negates whatever gear you have.
