  1. The shooter never moved forward of the ports. He was adjacent to the barricade and about a foot behind it. "The fact that it was advantageous to shoot the stage incorrectly directly results in an FTDR under any circumstances." Sounds like FTDR would have been the correct call.
  2. Yes, please post if you get an expert SO opinion.
  3. As I remember, the shooter was the 2nd or third shooter to shoot on our squad. Hard to imagine, but he just completely forgot to shoot thru the ports. He shot the stage freestyle adjacent to the barricade. I wasn't sure of the correct call, knowing a flagrant penalty would still leave him with an advantage on the stage. I did not believe FTDR applied to this situation. I checked with the Match Director who assessed 6 procedural penalties, one for each of the six ports from which the shooter was supposed to shoot. If the SO (me in this case) believed the shooter made an honest error and did not intend to gain advantage, I wonder if a flagrant penalty might technically be the correct call, even though it ends up being to the shooter's advantage.
  4. One of the stages at my IDPA match today required 3 shots from each of 6 different ports of a V-Tac style barricade for a total of eighteen rounds. Some of the ports were narrow and some of them were low, so it took some time to complete the stage. One shooter shot the entire stage forgetting to shoot thru the ports. The shooter's error was not intentional. A 10 second flagrant penalty would not add enough time to compensate for the advantage gained by not shooting thru the ports. What would be the correct penalties for the shooter?
  5. I'm interested in reloading for Bug in 9mm. I would be interested in learning what powders and what loads IDPA shooters use with the 95 PF. Do you use: fast powder, slow powder? Light bullets, heavy bullets? I will be shooting an M&P Shield. Thank you.
  6. What is the current process for submitting classifier scores in multiple divisions? If I shoot in SSP, but also want my scores to count in ESP, will this be done automatically by IDPA HQ when scores are submitted through Practiscore? If I have a classifier score of 130 in CDP, will that score also count in SSP and ESP? Do you still have to notify the match director to request Classifier scores in multiple divisions? Thank you.
  7. Thanks for the replies. I shoot 40S&W major.
  8. Are the Arendondo +5 mag extensions for Glock magazines legal in Limited Division? How about the Taran Tactical +5? If these two are not legal, what are my best options for Glock mag extensions in Limited? Thanks.

    CCP Mags

    Are 17 round Glock mags legal in CCP with a Glock 19? I was told the gun and mag will fit in the IDPA box and are legal to use. Thanks for any replies.
  10. I have not had to shoot a 3 gun match in the rain yet, but I suspect that some day I will. What, if anything, do you do to protect your rifle and riflescope? Any tips on how to have a successful match when it rains? Thanks.
  11. I was thinking of mounting a Fastfire on my Glock 17. Just wondering if the 3 moa or 8 moa Fastfire would work best. My purpose would be for USPSA Open Division and similar competitions. So does anyone have experience with both size dots? I would appreciate your thoughts on this subject.
  12. I see a lot of people using drop and offset holsters at 3 gun competions. Just wondering what is the advantage of using this style of holster? Thanks.
  13. I'm new at this, but it seemed to work well for me. The speedloaders 4-5 inches above my waist are faster to reload.
  14. I going to try shooting in the Revolver Division. I have read the rules, but wanted to be sure about what is legal concerning belts. I think I can shoot using two separate belts, one securing the gun and a second for the speedloaders? If the belt securing the gun is thru the belt loops at waist level, can I use the CR Speed inner belt at chest high level to hold speedloaders? Thanks.
  15. Yes, this reminded me also of SSR which previously had a 125 power factor. Very difficult to make in .38 special even with hand loads. It took a long time before the rule was changed. I read that 95 power factor was chosen for bug, because it will reliably knock down steel. Logical, but I don't think many people will be able to shoot their .380's in bug division. Perhaps the rule could have been written this way: "a base power factor of 80K. 95K required for any match with steel targets."
