  1. A practice run sure could help with max traps, swingers and other moving targets. That's starting to sound more reasonable though I'd rather not squad with anyone shooting two guns. Maybe I've just been burned by some slackers who didn't want to help but I've had bad experiences with these two gun shooters.
  2. Even if the second gun is in a different division you already had a practice run and shouldn't be competing for prizes and/or placement with those who didn't get to practice the stages. How much or how little you paid the match organizers isn't relevant here; it's all about being fair to all competitors not who paid what. In the event that someone does shoot two guns it should definitely be on a different day. I've been squaded with too many two gun wonders who spend all of their time dicking around with their gear and no time helping on the stage. No thanks. All in all at "real matches" I'd rather everyone compete once for prizes/placement because taking a practice run at the event isn't my idea of fair.

    Rain Bags

    I'm not sure if they were from uline but I've been at matches that had "nice bags" that were thicker and it was a lot easier (and faster) to reset a stage than with the cheap garbage bag covers.
  5. You kids and your new fangled GUI's. At least you reverted to a real command line interface to take care of the important stuff.
  6. All I've got to say is.... well, I don't want to talk about...

    hogue grips

    On my 625 and 627 I've replaced my fancy wood grips with the X-Frame grip from Hogue. It covers the backstrap and provides a good cushion for the major pf loads I shoot in the 625. Hogue's site says they are good to go on a variety of grip frame sizes https://www.hogueinc.com/grips/smith-wesson/xzframe/s-w-k-l-n-x-z-frame-round-butt-rubber-conversion-monogrip-black

    Fault lines?

    Locked it is. I hid a couple of posts that violated forum rules. Next time I'll do more than just lock the thread.
  9. In my old house (where my kids grew up) I know exactly where you have to place the target trap and where you have to stand to shoot 10m air rifle.
  10. I'd much rather see them test a wide range of factory offerings and then adjust the power factor to match their findings. It's way too easy to show up with a box of "factory" ammo that isn't what the label says it is just to get out of having to chrono. IDPA lowered the PF for revo down to 105 and I think that is a bit more in tune with factory offerings.

    Fault lines?

    Okay so this MIGHT be how you could say the inside edge of a 2x4 was the fault line; you paint it. This creates a simpler version of the crazy fault line painting story that rowdyb related up above. I added the bold emphasis below. So you paint one edge of a 2x4 (or whatever legal sized board you want) stake it down and declare that the paint, not the board, is the fault line. It seems controlling (for little reason other than to be controlling) but that is how you could state that this scenario is legal. Given the wording in the rule you could also apply tape to the 2x4 to create your fault line. Why you would create this extra work for yourself is beyond me but you could do it.
