  1. My least favorite aspect of Bug-R is: Well, that and it seems like it's never offered at matches.
  2. Well that changes things as far as scoring. Still sounds fun.
  3. The concept is really similar to the all steel stage we've run at the Arizona State match for a few years and, from what I could tell while running the stage, most seemed to enjoy it. With ICORE being straight time I'm not sure you could call a target that nets you -40 seconds a "bonus target". Now if we did stage points... well that's a gripe for another thread. Either way I've shot a version of that stage (if not that exact stage) at your match and it was fun.
  4. Joe R. Lansdale is a great writer. I was bumbed when they cancelled the Hap & Leonard television series.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
