    STI 2011 Right Side Mag Release

    Did you look at the Mitchell Custom right side mag catch? Good info here also:
  2. gng4life PCC muzzle

    I'm not sure I follow here, are you saying that going from muzzle down to pointing to a side berm could be a DQ? or from muzzle up to side berm? Or saying that if you case the PCC with the muzzle down, you would DQ? In essence, it states "while casing" so you would already be at the berm or within a reasonable distance, sleeve or bag it while it's pointing at the berm. Please elaborate. Thanks.

    Council after the COF

    1) Yes, absolutely. I welcome all comments that will keep everyone safe and make me a better/safer shooter. Also, safety warnings are allowed by the stage ROs per rule 8.6.1. 2) Good idea. If they can't be mature enough to accept constructive comments, well they need to grow up. Sometimes during the heat of a run, we all lose a few IQ points. Also, just a comment, they either DQ'ed or they didn't, call what you see - nothing more, nothing less.

    +1 Great place with great products. I have made many orders here. Great tutorials also. Let us know how it turns out...

    Forcing you to stay inside FFZ

    The OP situation seems pretty clear that the MD attempted to compel shooter movement without the basis of a true safety issue - taking your word for that since I was not there. This goes all against 1.1.5 so not good. So a Forbidden Action, which must be specified in the WSB, is only used when such movement will likely result in an unsafe condition. That is solely a judgement call by the official so was there any explanation as to what made the movements likely unsafe? Were there holes in the ground? Debris? Maybe standing water where a slip/fall was likely? Can you expand on this? On the situation with GregJ, that is more of a "Off-Limits" area, not a Forbidden Action, and must be clearly defined in the course along with put in the WSB and that is okay and advisable in a lot of situations like that. Also, the penalty for each is quite different so getting the correct declaration is important.

    Scoring a noshoot question

    Would you answer the questions so it is clear on the call (the match is irrelevant)? This is a learning forum also and it would help out others and possibly the match club in question. Thanks.

    Scoring a noshoot question

    Yeah, I got that part Sarge but I want to get the rest of the story from the OP. Even if we don't know which match it was, if someone from that club reads this and learns something from it to produce better matches (well, this goes for anyone really), then all is well.

    Scoring a noshoot question

    So did they make the correct scoring call? If not, what did they call? Can you list some examples of the other questionable calls you referenced? This isn't very clear so far.. I'm not trying to stir up anything, just want to use it as a training tool for others.

    definition of "Standing"

    It has long been a standard that "standing" is synonymous with "standing erect", although the latter phrase is technically incorrect. Standing does mean erect but since everyone tries to game stages, the standing erect (as noted in 8.2.2 and start positions) is there to further clarify. I am really surprised there wasn't an RO around to ensure the consistently in the start position. Start positions are not freestyle and the WSB can be modified at any time to clarify it even more if need be.

    Targets set too close to foul lines

    Targets set too close to foul lines

    The only rules that relate to that is about the physical construction, shooters being "forced to act in any manner which might cause unsafe action", and "safe angles of fire". As long as it at or beyond the 90 degree median intercept angle, it should be a safe angle. As long as the possible shots will not leave the berms, strike something that could be dangerous, or something along those lines, it should satisfy these rules also. It is the shooter's responsibility to keep their muzzle downrange. I see so many shooters trying to push beyond their capabilities so that is where most of the problems exist. Every shooter must understand their limitations and think safety before hit factor. Don't get me wrong, I do understand about courses that may seem a little unfair but every shooter must come up with a good plan that will account for those issues. And as always, if you see a safety issue, make it known right away to an official.

    Round Nose or Flat Nose for USPSA?

    +1! Hollow points are known to be a little more accurate but whatever runs good and accurate in your gun is the best.

    How short can I load 9 major?

    I would be careful, I'm sure you know this but pressure is not linear. Because we are already close to the limits of a 9mm case, I would work it up very slowly if you decide to go that route. Personally, I would have the chamber lengthened. Just solves so many problems. And usually you get better feeding reliability with longer OALs for 9mm rounds in 2011 platforms.
