  1. Long time no hear folks! Been busy with kids lately. Anyway, I was just browsing through the Mar/Apr 2016 Frontsight and got to page 50 where they were surveying who shot what during nationals. Under L10, it was showing that 3% of the L10 shooters at Nationals were shooting 9mm Major? When I looked at the USPSA site, I didn't see an NROI ruling indicating a change to D2 or D3 about minimum calibers for major. Am I missing an announcement from an older issue of Frontsight?
  2. Feel free to move this to the humor forum, but I thought it would be quite appropriate here since we live and die by the rulebook. Sorry. I haven't been around much, but I do lurk from time to time. Been busy with kids and work lately.
  3. Right now, I'm hypothesizing because it looks like with the 2013 version the forward and back sway of the arm has more leeway, and the new ball joint system looks to have more angular motion available to it. I've got the pre-2013 version of of Racemaster. I believe that I can make a similar adjustment keeping the the butt of the grip even with the top of the belt, but not have the grip perpendicularly measurable from the attachment point. If I succeed, I'll post pictures. If I don't succeed, then I case this is just a matter of the RM will have to make a call when somebody eventually make such a holster where the attachment point is not necessarily radially lined up with the grip.
  4. It would work for the Ghost holter and the WSM II, but with the 2013 version of the Racemaster, you can move the top pivot at the belt attachment back, and then tilt the bottom pivot to cant the gun so that the grip does not line up with the belt attachment. Here's a picture of the 2013 Racemaster for reference:
  5. Check out the stage pictured in the Bracing beyond the fault line thread. It tries to compel shooters to shoot with one hand, while they hang on the handle with the other hand through the placement of targets and the way the wall obstructs the view. Essentially a different approach to creating a Rhodesian wall.
  6. @Steve RA is my long lost brother. Back on topic about the 2" measurement from the attachment point to the grip. If the shooter has his gun canted back so much that a perpendicular line from the attachment point extends out to the slide, but not the grip, do you accept the distance as long as it is less than or equal to 2" (and that the butt of the gun is still at the same level as the top of the belt)?
  7. If you consider the mag release to be a reloading device, if the the start condition is "gun unloaded and holstered; all reloading devices in ammo can", would you disassemble your gun and put the mag release inside the ammo can?
  8. But that still doesn't explain why the measurement was being done to the safety, rather than to the grip at the 2014 Nationals as indicated in post #173.
  9. +1 on the educational value of the video post match (and perhaps after some food and drinks). For folks who shoot Glocks (I'm one of them) and other guns with polymer mags, we sometimes develop a habit of a little wrist flick to get the magazine to eject. When doing that wrist flick right after shooting a target right on the 180 line, it becomes very apparent that the muzzle can wander past the 180. Usually the movement is so fast that most ROs will not catch it, but it will show up on video.
  10. Was this years Nationals run under the old rulebook? The 2014 rules now specifically say measure to the grip. From the 2014 rulebook: (bold emphasis mine). From the older rulebook:
  11. The other thing that was going against the IPSC sanctioning is the current established place that ISSF (formerly UIT/ISU) has in the Olympics. ISSF provides the governing rules for all currently existing Olympic shooting events and they have specific verbiage in their rules about distancing themselves from any "practical shooting sports". See the Wikipedia article about ISSF.
  12. Ah! Excellent. Interesting..., but a sleeve by its nature adds material. So with 21.4 and 22.2 combined, for semi-autos it's okay to add material via sleeve as long as the original profile is maintained. But how can the original profile be maintained where without the sleeve the grip is thinner and with the grip it's thicker? Or are we saying that a US penny and a quarter have the same profile because they are both still cylindrical, but one is smaller and thinner, while the other is bigger and thicker? But a Canadian loonie does not have the same profile because it has 11 sides?
  13. Where does it say that? If the finger groove grips come in sleeve form, then keep the original removable panel in place, and slip on the sleeve. D4.21.4 specifically allows sleeves:
  14. And do the grips have to be symmetrical? Can I put a thin grip panel on the strong hand side, and a thick grip panel on the weak hand side?
  15. I've seen it on Enos, but it was typically people in the IDPA section. There are times when they will freely swap the term DQ and "shoot for no score". Often I have to look closer and realize that somebody's equipment didn't pass the regulations and so they are shooting for no score, but people will colloquially say that they DQ'ed.
