I use Walther's 9mm Q5 Match. Ready to go right out of the box, the Q5 is truly unique. I have never had a competition gun that I didn't need to modify until now. The trigger is 5.6 pounds and incredibly smooth with a crisp break, making it the best striker fire trigger on the market. I find the gun to be easy to handle; the lightweight slide reduces recoil and allows me to get my sight aligned quickly after firing a shot. The Q5 helps me in many ways, but its unconditional reliability truly blew me away. Even in the harshest conditions and after 10,000 rounds going through it without cleaning, it stayed consistent, reliable, and accurate.


I have tried many different coated bullets and I find Gallant Group's bullet profile is better than other bullets in the market because I can load it longer. I have been using 1.100 OAL for most of 125 gr bullets from other companies but with Gallant Bullets, I can load as long as 1.17 OAL with my Walther Q5 and Tanfoglio Stock 2. My current Gallant Group load (125gr 1.150 OAL with Vectan powder Ba9 5.2gr) shoots under 2 inch group at 35 yards at 135 power factor. This is the best coated bullets on the market without a doubt!

If you want to reload fast and consistently, basepads are key. I am currently using their production legal basepads and 140mm +6 basepads for Carry Optics division. Both of them are running flawlessly. These basepads with the Walther PPQ magazines create the perfect angle for high-speed reloading.

Additionally, the Guga Ribas race holster design is the first and only holster that can fit any gun on the market with no extra parts required.

When I shoot USPSA Production division, I use a blade tech holster with the Boss hanger. I found this combination to be the most comfortable set up for a fast and consistent draw. It is very important to me to have enough space between the holster and the belt when I draw because I use my right thumb to establish the grip before I pull the gun out of the holster. With the Boss Hanger I am able to achieve this grip every time. It's angle and height adjustments allow you to customize your set up and the adjustments hold very firmly once the screws are tightened.
