  1. Just to clarify a bit here... ENOS is a very active site with many concurrent connections, needing more resources... Typically with a larger community, many of the smaller companies will kick off the larger sites or really ask for much more money. There are a few other challenges I have there but a different discussion. The forum hosting sites are great for someone who cannot pay the software licensing fees (Around $200 per year) and does not have the ability to administer the server themselves. The forum is currently hosted on an all inclusive package on Invision's servers and why the site is sooo snappy and responsive. BUT... it costs $$$ and why Brian is asking community members to pitch in/step up.
  2. Really interesting discussion. I think we can all agree it was stupid and perhaps there SHOULD be a rule for it, however as the rules are written today, there is no explicit rule that is broken, and if it went to arb, would be overturned.
  3. Thats all I run them on... Zero issues. Sometimes it is a 10,000 mah, other times it is 28,000 mah solar one.
  4. Been watching this gun and was anxiously awaiting to get one since it was announced at Shot Show. Was able to get one finally and put a few thousand rounds through it and even shot a local match with it, versus my regular SP01 Custom. Good experience. Only issue is 10 round mags (when I shot in Jersey) did not drop free.

  7. Ok, so to add to this. Unfortunately we live in a coutnry where about 1/3 of the population lives under tyranny of 10 round mag limits. Production gives shooters a place to shoot without feeling too many pressures of having to spend $1,500 on a gun just to shoot. Also, before the rule changes, there were plenty of people who would not follow local mag laws for Open and Limited.... and of course, that leaves that issue. So changing Production to 15 will now leave 1/3 of the country and likely 1/2 of the gun owners playing gun games at a disadvantage and with moral dilemma of breaking laws in order to stay competitive. Leave it at 10... perhaps making "production" more "production"... or make a "Limited Minor" division for those who really want it. And making production be production gun limits? lol. That will just make everyone shoot the same guns... 19 round CZs and XDms... until someone starts producing guns with "factory" extended base plates?
  8. HAHAHAHAHA. I let my RO cert expire, so going through the rule book changes.. Jeez!
  9. In short, unless your state has some brutal laws, no, there is not a requirement. From the state, just be licensed, i.e. get an llc if you want protection and liability insurance. No where does it say you need to be an NRA instructor etc... BUT most people will get it just because newbs will want it... same thing if you want to teach at a public range, etc.. Also ask the place where you plan on teaching. I.e. many private ranges do not allow members to conduct business on the property. Teaching gun classes is not like being a licensed doctor, lawyer, stock broker, real estate agent.... at least as far as I know in most of free america. You don't need permission to do it. If someone is willing to pay you for your knowledge... that's all that matters.
  10. Interesting... in my Hornady powder measure, it is the alliant e3 that sometimes sticks and has issues throwing... at times throws light and I got to make sure to catch it. Not sure how different N310 is from 320, but did not have issues with 320. I will say, really liking the way e3 shoots though. Have not tried 40 yet but in 9mm, yum.
  11. All of these production changes into Limited are a bit annoying but I am totally against having production be 15 rounds. The fact is, that while only 9 states are subject to mag limits, it is nearly 1/3 of the population and if I would venture to guess, about half of the people shooting USPSA? And until the rule changes in USPSA, guys shooting Limited/Open in ban states were generally not shooting state capacity limits. lol. Part of the appeal of Production is that there is more required to win than just hosing the stage from one mag. A botched mag change may mean a bad stage outcome and I think that is good and what separates USPSA from scripted games like IDPA.
  12. Yes, without a doubt 40 is losing popularity but there is still a crapload of it out there. And I agree, if it was not for USPSA, I would not be shooting 40... although 40 powder puff loads are pretty nice for fun. In 10 years, yes, situation may be a bit different but heck, you can still buy once fired 45 GAP brass. =P
  13. Generally I don't see any issues with this, with the situation that I believe you are describing. If the stage is empty, i.e no squad on it currently, or last squad passed, etc... zero issues. Where I have issues, as an RO and where it would be unsportsmanlike would be... 1. There is a squad on the stage and you are in the shooting area during an active squad. 2. You are airgunning the stage between shooters AND IT IS NOT YOUR SQUAD.... i.e. you left your squad to get ahead OR are not there shooting. Otherwise, no issues from me and this is how it was from local matches to nationals.
