Response to My ears are burning...
"From that one experience I learned I'd prefer more weight on the gun for pistol and rifle FT work. For me that means pretty (and heavy) wood forend, grips and (for RFT) a Corcoran stock."
Same here. When shooting IHMSA, I had to watch my gun's weight. But no weight limit in any AAFTA classes. I already added a mixture of duct seal and lead shot into the pistol grip. I have plans on replacing the wood forend with a steel forend for even more weight at some point. Without a buttstock for support, my pistol offhand is atrocious. And I doubt if that extra weight will help those shots, it might hurt them. Those weight gain plans are on hold until I finish my current design/shop project - a range cart. I got tired of carrying all that gear around. My body does not like it anymore (I turned 60 this year). But don't fret about "all that gear". My first order of business was to cut back on as much gear as possible. My cart will be more like a 6" thick suitcase. Thick enough to house my gun (among other things). And it will do double duty as a seat. Imagine a suitcase with retractable handle wheels that can be used to carry it or wheel it around.
Go to the Nats. Arizona is practically next door to Texas.
