Anyone use theirs in matches? I'll be getting one soon, what did you change on it to be more competition friendly?

I'm talking about the smaller P01, not the SP01 in case there is any confusion.

Wow, stumped. Must be perfect already!

I kid. Tried it on some steels and did a couple drills, all controls are right within reach and my addition of a fiber front sight really made it easy to hit where I point. I realize now my 97b is definitely not combat or competition friendly in comparison.

No, I moved away from anywhere that had matches not long after I got mine. I would certainly love to try it in one!
PS, a gunsmith friend of mine accused me of getting a trigger job on it - just the result of thousands of rounds down range. ;)

It did very well! It was easier to pick up the front sight than the 75bd I had and times reflected that. All controls are well within reach and the beveled magwell made reloads almost automatic. No jams, mainly due to the MecGar mags I bought.
