    New to 9MM reloading COL problem

    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.

    New shooter info packet

    I should have known my fellow Alabamians would come through. These are very helpful. I also found this: http://www.rbgc.org/USPSA/USPSAgear.htm Thanks, Dave

    Gun safes

    If it is off the floor then a jack or furniture/appliance dolly can get under it. Make sure it is anchored securely so it doesn't walk away. Use and interior wall. Crooks can cut through an exterior wall and take it all. I use a string of rope lights to heat the safe which reduces the humidity. The light is a bonus.

    New shooter info packet

    As a match director I receive a lot of "what do I need for the match" type of questions. Does anyone have a a list or flyer that they pass out to new shooters? I have a standard letter, but I want to make sure I don't miss anything and maybe I can borrow some good formats. TIA, Daev

  8. How about: 10.5.1 "Handling a firearm at any time except when in a designated safety area or when under the supervision of, and in response to a direct command issued by, a Range Officer." The "in response to a direct command issued by an Range Officer" seems pretty clear. I cannot walk up to an RO and fiddle with my firearm because of proximity. The RO has to directly tell me to do so.

    Slide stop is walking out during a stage.

    The slide stop should not be able to slide out except when it is aligned with the take down notch. The broken diagnosis is based on the retainer part of the slide stop, which rides inside the slide and keeps the slide stop from walking, is probably broken off.

    There slots still open for Wed., Thu., and Fri. https://clubs.practiscore.com/2018-wssc-presented-by-sig/register It looks like 605 guns are registered, 119 PCC and 285 rimfire.

    End Of Course Of Fire

    The zombie post lives....... You may want to check 10.5.3 - If at any time during the course of fire, or while loading, reloading or unloading, a competitor drops his handgun or causes it to fall, loaded or not. The way I read it, if you drop an unloaded gun during the course fire it is a DQ. Fumble a table start, drop your gun after "make ready" or miss your holster after “If Clear, Hammer Down, Holster” and it ends in a DQ. Dave

    Admitting guilt to an AD

    Not according to the rule book. 10.4 has very specific definitions of an AD. How did you know the shot broke too soon?.

    What to use to cover targets when raining?

    Ben's classes are great. I bought these and they worked fine: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00BVTUX7E/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1 A friend told me that East Alabama Gun Club did some testing of targets in the rain. They tried various types of coatings/coverings and the one that held up to 1-2 days of rain was 50:50 Acrylic Clear Lacquer and Acetone. Pasters maybe a challenge......

    USPSA range commands and an AD

    This is clearly a DQ according to 10.4.3. A shot which occurs while loading, reloading or unloading a handgun. This includes any shot fired during the procedures outlined in Rule 8.3.1 (MR) and Rule 8.3.7 (ULASC) What am I missing?
