  1. Good point. This sounds like a better idea the more one thinks about it. We would just need to rename the division but that's not a big deal. It would be much better than changing an existing division that would piss off a lot of people and also better than introducing a new division.
  2. They should just remove the requirement. Then all of the Production shooters that want more than 10 rounds could just load up their guns with 140mm mags and run irons if they chose to, and we could rid the internet of Production-15 threads.
  3. The steel on stage 9 was ridiculous. We rolled up on that stage and the squad ahead of us was still waiting on the squad ahead of them. There was some sort of popper drama at least every 3 shooters. What made the situation the most frustrating was that it was painfully obvious that the steel was not calibrated properly and the RO's insisted that the steel was fine. One shooter on the squad ahead of us even asked the RM for a calibration prior to his run and the RM stated that it was not allowed. He said something along the lines that a calibration could only be performed if a shooter shot at it and left it standing and then requested a calibration. Nobody was willing to risk FTE's and M's on the swingers so it was just a continued crap sandwich that everyone was eating. Eventually, the RM calibrated the left popper before our squad was up. This was interesting because I don't believe the calibration occurred at the request of a shooter that left it standing and requested a calibration as the RM had outlined. I could be wrong on this as I was in a heat/humidity induced stupor, but I don't think a shooter left it standing and requested calibration. Maybe Rowdy can remember better than me. It was extremely embarrassing to see this type of issue at a National level match.
  4. Rule states there is an exception for reloading or correcting a malfunction.
  5. IPSC Rulebook 10.2.8 If a course of fire (or part thereof) stipulates shooting strong or weak hand only, a competitor will incur one procedural penalty for each occurrence of touching the handgun (or scooping it from a table etc.) with the other hand after the Start Signal (or from the point where single hand shooting has been stipulated). Exceptions are releasing an external safety (without scooping), reloading or correcting a malfunction. However, the procedural penalty will be applied on a "per shot fired" basis when a competitor uses the other hand or arm to: support the handgun or the stipulated wrist, hand or arm while firing shots; increase stability on the ground, a barricade or another prop while firing shots. increase stability on the ground, a barricade or another prop while firing shots If gun starts loaded on table and the entire stage is to be shot WHO, is it allowable to use strong hand to adjust grip after picking it up in the weak hand?
  6. It's stuff like this that has made me stay away from the Area 3 championship. Looks like they finally noticed attendance dropping and they toned it down a bit. This will be the first year going back to that match after three years staying away.
  7. Rule 10.4.2 states, "A shot which strikes the ground within 10 feet of the competitor, except when shooting at a cardboard target closer than 10 feet to the competitor." Let's say a competitor is intending to shoot a target (either drawing to or transitioning to) within 10 feet and he AD's into the ground. Do you feel that the "exception" language of 10.4.2 is exempting shots with the qualifier that they actually hit the target? Or do you think that as long as the shooter's intent was to engage said close target, they can AD into the ground and it's not a DQ?
  8. Interesting comment about Caspian. I’ve got a Caspian slide on a 9major gun with around 80k rounds on it. No cracks. Of course it’ll prob crack next week now that I said that.
  9. Is this available on iTunes podcasts? It's not showing up on my phone but am not familiar with the patreon podcast platform.
  10. What if it's a target against the side berm that's available and safe from one spot but can be engaged beyond the 180 if you take a couple more steps downrange? Or a target that can be engaged from right side of a 24" port but not the left side?
  11. This is the first I've heard of the XL. Looks like it's 1x35. Can only find one picture and it's from the side.
  12. It really should come down to this. I don’t know why some people make this harder than it should be. Multiple targets that are placed out in the open along a side berm are going to be shot on the move while advancing downrange. Scenarios such as, “you can shoot this target here but not if your foot is beyond this point,” or “you can shoot this target through the left side of the port but if you’re on the right side, it’s a dq,” are ridiculous and are what this rule is intended to prevent. People should know better on targets that you have to break 200+ to engage.
  13. Nevermind. I think we're talking about two different things. You're talking about the slide cuts on the Sig pistols, right? I was referring to the mounting pattern of the R3Max optic.
  14. Everything I've heard said that the new Sig Romeo3Max is going to be the same mounting pattern as old Romeo3 which is the RTS2 pattern. I haven't heard anything about a DPP cut on the R3Max.
  15. Is the R3Max really retailing for $719??? Someone posted a screen shot of an Instagram post from Max in the SRO thread. Edit-Looking through Max's IG feed, I don't see any reference to $719.
  16. Agreed on the marketing aspect. However, if I am searching for the dot on a hard lean or SHO/WHO, it's always either right or left. Not vertical. I think the 30mm wide will make a noticeable difference over 25mm. Since I shoot these on a frame mounted Open gun, the dot never leaves the top of the glass. Could be a different story for a slide mounted dot. If I was shooting a slide mounted dot, I would lean more towards durability which only time will tell.
  17. SRO is pretty much same as RTS2. Romeo Max3 is saying 30mm lens. C-More slide ride is 29mm. IMO, a C-More slide ride is much bigger than an RTS2 so I wouldn't say the SRO and Max3 are similar at all.
  18. Interesting. It looks like the smaller footprint of the SRO creates the illusion of the glass being bigger than it really is.
  19. Thank you. I've only done them the second way. I have a "grave yard" of extractors that maybe I'll try to fit the first way and see how it works.
  20. Great write up! Do you setup your extractors for 9mm the same way with regard to the edge of the claw not contacting case?
  21. I wasn’t referring to you specifically being salty. And it’s not an ad hominem attack when you think about the real reasons people would advocate changing divisions they don’t shoot. To put it nicely, yes it boils down to being salty and ego.
