  1. Using a light and checking each case for powder will prevent squibs. if you have a bad case or other problem, clear the problem and let the empty space advance. Don't try to keep the shell holder full.
  2. A new Amazon Kindle Fire 7 is $49.99, We use the HD 8s for our matches and they work great. They should be a good option for you to consider.
  3. Paint pens from the Walmart craft department. They come in a variety of sizes and colors. Cheap too.
  4. I learn something new everyday.
  5. "According to the rules, that is legal if Flagged, if the muzzle sweeps anyones feet, it would because DQ." What is "reasonably vertical?" If I was the RM I'd have him adjust it. Rule uses three feet for carts and rule uses three feet for holstered pistols. I'd use the same measurement in this case.
  6. A significant problem is that there is always someone who will do something stupid. Especially at the start of the match when they haven't been through a stage and ULASC yet. I've seen more than one loaded gun come out of a range bag at the start of the match. The second problem is people don't know/follow the rules that we have. Many shooters don't take the time to read the rules and understand the requirements for casing/carting. The third problem is people fidget. A cased gun is left alone on a bench or cart. A PCC is on the shooter is subject to being messed with. The "let me aim at the sky to adjust my optic" BS. Is this a proper example of rule
  7. What is a bagging area? I don't see anything in the rule book about a specified area to bag/unbag a PCC. Rule says: Carbines must be cased/uncased or removed/replaced on a cart with the muzzle pointed in a safe direction directly into and within 2 yards of a side berm or backstop. It doesn't say it has to be a specific portion of the berm/backstop. If you add a casing/uncasing area aren't you just adding a safe area? We put a safety area in each bay to prevent any confusion.
  8. There are a couple of variables you didn't seem to consider. Double action seems to mean DA only guns. So, DAO guns are loaded and hammer is down. Some striker fired guns only have external safeties. They don't have tabbed trigger safeties like the Glock trigger. The Sig P320 is available with a standard trigger with a manual safety. https://www.sigsauer.com/products/firearms/pistols/p320/ Under your rule adjustment they could be holstered with no external safety or internal safety activated . The new rules add complexity, but it is a more complicated shooting world. RO's already have to remember variations based on the division.
  9. As Clangclang mentioned. The original post is based on a fallacy. Braces are legal as braces. Shouldering a brace leads to legal problems according to the ATF. Here's the letter: https://www.atf.gov/file/11816/download Please read it carefully and completely.
  10. I can see both points of view. But, I keep coming back to the same thought: should non-members be allowed to compete for an organization's championship? This includes going to the prize table and getting plaques. Membership should be required for championships. In someways it is a perk for the members. It dilutes the match to open it to non-members and it doesn't seem right for members not to be able to shoot because non-members take slots. If it is important to the local non-member shooters, then they should join Steel Challenge.
  11. Here's another: https://www.shortroundsupply.com/sales-specials.html?manufacturer_atribute=1618&price=325-325&fbclid=IwAR3IoEpTRqHdphVhmygn4LB3Jo6QZFsDiLs-ius4Ave8n42Dj9g68r40uno
  12. Try this : https://rg4arms.net/leupold-optics-leu-delta-pnt-pro-2-5moa-dot/?gclid=Cj0KCQiA597fBRCzARIsAHWby0HSGQOsVsKFaBSkM56WoOtQtKTKMPST8SH6H9fWP579aQfip5bbg1UaAu4vEALw_wcB There's a code on the vendor home page for another 10% OFF
  13. Range lawyers will argue anything. I would have done the same thing as the OP. There is no starting box in the rule book - just shooting boxes. I would have treated it like a foot fault in a shooting box. If he was touching anything outside the box, that is not connected to the box, then he is outside of the box. One foot in the box and the other not touching the ground, then I would have started the shooter.
  14. Distance.... 105 feet is a deep bay.
  15. Stop for a moment and think about how small your variance actually is. With your COAL range, your are running 1.1565" +/- 0.0065". 6.5/1000 of an inch variation is very small. Coated bullets can vary that much (mine sometimes have small lumps/bumps), grime build up can interfere with the press operation, your technique and all of the other matters discussed earlier can add up to that. I think it is a testament to Dillon quality and tolerances that you can keep ammo within .013 inches running a volume-oriented loading press.
