Brian,
Buzz is correct.
The brakes I prefer are of this style:
Holland's Quick Discharge, Shawn's Defensive Edge, Lawton's paritition brake, and Kirby's (but i don't have one of his, yet).
These are all solid-bottomed brakes. Kirby's & Shawn's have no top ports while Holland's has three circular ported on top and Lawton's has one.

Any of these will work well. Combined with a heavy barrel it will be very little recoil-easy to use a rifle scope with.
Eric's 6x47 Laupa allows him to spot his own shots some of the time.

Doe Run has 1k matches (600 yds. also?) and it is in SW Missouri.
If you like to travel, there is an all handgun comp in Sundance WY (500, 750, & 1k).
If you enjoy LR shooting this would give you some other opportunities besides pd's

You may want to check with your State of Missouri on the maximum barrel length allowed on a handgun. While "buzzgun" is correct in that there are not any Federal Regulations on pistol barrel length. It will vary State to State. Where I live in New York State the maximum legal barrel length is 16 inches. There is no minimum barrel length. Autoloading pistols must have a barrel length of less than 8 inches. Good luck with your project. I hope this helps some.

does it make a big differance if the stock is rear grip or mid grip in the way it kicks? i was just thinking a reargrip would keep the muzzle from jumping as bad

the reason i was asking is i am trying to get this project going before i go pd hunting in about a month and it seems that someone has bought up every rear grip xp stock in the USA and since i have no preferance because i have only shot a contender a few hundred times it would make no differance to me if it was reargrip or midgrip if there is no advantage when shooting off a bench

With a heavy barrel and a good brake either will work for you
Rear grip allows you to buy a trigger like the Jewell.
Have you contacted Joel Russo or Neal (338Hammer) about rear grip stocks?
