  1. I it it hard and heavy for five years, shooting local matches most weekends, hitting Sectionals, Areas, and Nationals four years in a row - then got laid off from my job as my industry was literally dying, and moved out of NJ - where I had competed with my friends the most. Shot less the next couple of years while attending nursing school, then just bogged down trying to get a new career off the ground; also made the decision not to shoot any more matches in NJ, which really cut down on one of the attractions: Shooting matches with friends. Shot a few local matches in 2019; planned to shoot
  2. Old Bridge NJ has been around since at least the late 90s. Central Jersey - which I don't think is a USPSA club anymore - has history going back to the 80s I think. Lower Providence goes back that far too I think - at least it;'s the current home of PPSA The Philadelphia Pistol Shooter's Association, which met elsewhere before moving to LP. LP did take a couple of years off before Area 8 Director Ted Murphy revived the match....
  3. Let me take a crack at this: Shooter engages T1 with two rounds - immediately earns a stacking procedural Shooter engages T2 with two rounds - ditto Shooter engages T3, T5, and T4 with one round each - no penalties to this point, but now a reload is required: Shooter engages T3 with a second round - one procedural for round fired after the point where reload was required. Shooter fumbles with magazine, but does not reload, because he reinserts same mag - no change too procedurals Shooter engages T4 and T5 with one round each, earning the second and third procedura
  4. I've only played with rifles in 3 gun competitions, but I always kept some 10 and 20 round mags in my mag specifically for stages with mandatory reloads. Why? Because they're a much faster reload for me than a 30 or 40 round curved mag. (And I had ten rounders, because I bought my first rifle between '94 and '04 - when those were the only new mags available - I figured some youngster would wonder....)
  5. Some of the best times I ever had was when I was shooting matches with two other C shooters in Production, and later with two other B shooters in Production (4 friends total, the C shooters drifted away, the B shooters drifted in). We'd razz each other and compare scores on a regular basis - we weren't competitive for a division win, but we could compete for class wins, and for bragging rights among ourselves - friendships were forged there....
  6. Because those are products considered to be essential to human survival. Food, water, clothing, shelter, medications, and other supplies needed to ensure human survival. Interestingly only 36 states may have laws or statutes regulating this; these are generally civil offenses, not criminal offenses, but in some states criminal charges are possible. Primers - unlikely to be covered....
  7. Me thinks you've never read a definition of price gouging: also defined as: Kind of challenging to make primers meet that definition. TL;DR: Seller believes his primers are very dear to him; buyers are free to agree and buy, or disagree and not buy......
  8. That would have been fun at Nats - when I used to attend. Let me go to the truck - here's the six batches of 350 rounds each. I know I was overthinking it; but I was prepared for the match staff to declare a different batch to be unsafe each day of the competition, and was prepared with additional batches.....
  9. This. While I haven't RO'd a match in about a decade, I've served as RM on a couple, and would not have allowed an RO to be placed at this position, if I had been serving in that position. The standard for me isn't "Is it safe?" rather the standard is "Where's the safest place for an RO to be to monitor for a 180 violation?" Then place the RO there - or if an RO trap exists on the stage as designed/built - work with the MD to have the situation rectified before the first shot is fired.
  10. Ahoy Nik,

    I'm trying to find a mod that can take down ALL my for sale items. Many have been sold. I also need to reprice several items so I'd like to start w/ a blank page.

      This would be better suited to a pm. Please pm me with the details of which ads you would like removed/locked, if they haven't been removed/locked of yet.


      For future info, no classifieds ads get deleted, they get locked. When your item has sold, please just post in the thread that the item is sold and to please lock the thread.

  11. Sometimes it really is that simple - you ask a question, and an RM or MD looks up the rule, and just like that the problem goes away. Most of us show up to work matches wanting to do right by the competitors. Really not even most of us, but virtually all of us....
  12. Small Claims Court? Might be a PITA, might work...... Other than that - make future matches invitationals, as in you need an invitation to be allowed to register. Or decline to accept credit cards for registration. Cash or check only?
  13. Bigger than it is currently, no? It seemed like people spent years trying to get close to or beat Sevigny in Production....
