  1. It does? I must be gripping the gun wrong. I was going to talk to ya about that... JT
  2. That shit isn't any fun, I haven't got left downrange, but have had a shooter slow up on seeing I was going to get overrun. I clearly interfered with his run and before calling out the time or scoring offered him a reshoot and a thank you for not running me down of leaving me downrange. JT
  3. Getting a quote today, should know something very soon... JT
  4. I have one on my backup gun I can get you... They are going into production soon, hoping to have them out in a couple weeks. JT
  5. I'm heading in today to talk to a new shop to get them made... been getting more calls and emails than I can count. They should be done in a couple weeks... I'll know more tonight.
  6. Nah, already as high as I can go, but it might get me back shooting at the GM level. I think with what little shooting I've been doing I'm probably closer to A class now. JT
  7. Like this? I think I saw you make that move at A5.

    Holy thread resurrection Batman. lol I guess someone is using the search function. JT
  9. ...and from Appendix A3: Based on that I would propose that an RO getting downrange of a competitor is the ROs fault and he should offer a reshoot, BUT...if the competitor sweeps the RO with his gun, I feel that is the fault of the competitor. Even though I realize that DQ could likely be overturned if arbitrated, I would still issue it and let the RM / arb committee argue the discrepancy in the wording of 10.5.5 and the definition of sweeping in Appendix A3. Since DQs have to be supported by rule, what "rule" would you cite? Sanity check here... I agree that in this case there sho
  10. STOP! Then USC followed by what the hell was that about and then make your decision on how to proceed. The bottom line is you can not allow a shooter to be up-range of you, or anyone and this is YOUR responsibility as an RO. The RO is responsible for the safety of everyone on the range, do not forget to include yourself in that equation. JT
  11. I know, but my point is, if it's a battle trying to get some scorekeepers to do something as basic as totaling up, or checking totals, how much more trouble will it be to get them to move to a new system completely. No offense to anyone here, but shooters can be a right lot of whiners sometimes. I'm rather interested in hearing the downside stories just to have some idea as to what I could be letting myself in for if I try this next year. Has anyone tried and failed? Has anyone run into some major problems? Overheat issues, if they are in a hot place with hardly any shade they will ove
  12. I have an early version of it and I was getting that sticking stuff and just put my Dillon funnel back in and no more issues. I get the odd bullet tip once in awhile because I just don't bell my 9mm much as the brass last a lot longer when you don't bell as much. fyi JT
  13. You're still a bagger! lol. I told ya you were M buddy. Great work there. If I had to send you off to work on something it would be footwork . I don't want to take anything away from you though, you really shot awesome. He just got the A class guys, you almost got spanked by a B class. lol JT
  14. Don't forget other factors, some people double pug, some don't hear well, some might not speak English. The first thing you should say to a shooter is Make ready... period. Now, I know it's up to them to make sure of the command, but we can save a lot of misunderstandings by issuing the MR as our first utterance. JT
