  13. Lots of questions and you will get lots of opinions. 18 devices seems high. I got my local club into the nooks. We bought six specifically as stage nooks. Then, one each as a uspsa, idpa, and a steel challenge master. We also have one spare. We are in them around $600, and that would buy a lot of pencils and papers. Pencils that still work in the rain, still work if you break them in half, still work in the dust and wind. My first experience with PS was at a large match, we were promised results immediately after the last shot was fired, when in reality it was 4 hours. I personally dont think large matches are the place to beta test software. However, it has come a long ways since then and I am comfortable scoring a large match with it. What does still bother me, is that we have no idea of the lifetime of the nooks. All the nooks have done, is to take the headaches after a match in scoring with paper, and eliminated those headaches; while creating an entirely different set of headaches before and during the match. Some of those are also called learning curve. However, i have found the younger kids are more apt to pick up a nook and learn to score with it; the older guys are quicker to grab paper. Yes, major uspsa matches require paper backup. It can be simplified greatly, you dont have to give a carbon copy to each competitors. A single sheet with the entire squad'd hit factors for each stage suffices. No, i havent seen paper backup used at local matches. I have seen sloppy scoring at local matches. At mine, we make the competitor press the "Save" button, after showing them their score, takes the place of signing the score sheet. Some matches i have seen the nook guy just walk thru the targets scoring them all. No one calliing the score to him. That method bugs me. I prefer to check what the scoring ro calls by glancing at the target as he scores them. Correct USPSA is the governing body of practical shooting sports. Practiscore is the tradename for scoring software by Niftybytes, Inc, a for profit company based in utah. At one point USPSA stated that they would be dropping support for ezwinscore, but that has not happened yet, and it is still the official scoring program for uspsa matches. From your pros: the auto fill is ok, we make a google spreadsheet for match signup on our website, with the intent that people signup by the day before the match. Then, ususally we will do a direct spreadsheet import to populate the match. Smaller matches might just recopy what is in the spreadsheet. However, the master database of names is not accessable. To delete multiple incorrect entries, you have to do them one at a time. Kinda clunky. Your cons are all correct. Another pro: we run a lot of matches at our club. All the shooters except cowboy action have swallowed the PS pill. We score USPSA, IDPA, Steel Challenge on our nooks. That is a lot of shooters using them. In addition, other clubs in my section have them, so we have a large pool of devices we can share amongst the clubs when it is a smaller clubs turn to hold a sectional match. Finally, i dont like the results output. It is HTML output, which takes a lot of server space on the section website. I convert back to ezwinscore before posting results, and the conversion / import only takes two minutes. From ezwinscore i can then get the output in a much smaller (digitally speaking) size that I can manipulate on the section website. Nooks currently do not have the ability to upload classifer reports directly to the uspsa website. You will have to convert back into ezwinscore, or else get an apple ios (much more expensive) device to serve as the master. I am sure others will chime in here now with their opinions and results. Remember we all have had various experiences with them, but i can tell you it seems to be the wave of the future. Oh yeah, all 4 clubs in the Utah section and 4 out of 5 clubs in the Idaho section are using ps. Pretty sure at least half the clubs in montana are using it as well. Wyoming is still scoring on tree bark. TimE
