    Miss or equipment failure

    The term is a bit vague. As I understand it, a wall support is offline from the actual wall. Such as 45-degree supports that extend in front of or behind the plane of the wall to keep it from falling over. It does not mean the wall or the wall legs in the same plane.
  2. If you're worried about it as a shooter, just wait until the time is recorded before you ULSC. If you're worried about it as an RO, note the time at the last shot. If you have to go to an Arbitration over a stage time, I don't think an alternate timer readout would be admissible.

    PCC technique

    I still don't do it unconsciously (yet), but it really does make a huge difference to drive the shoulder forward.

    9.1.3 Question

    The suggested edit calls for a reshoot if it was a Range Official who prematurely patched the target. If a non-RO did it, it is scored "as presented", which to me seems to mean that if I don't see holes, it's two mikes. Suggested edit: If a target is prematurely patched or taped which prevents a range official from determining the actual score, the Range Official must determine who patched or taped the target. If it was not a Range Official, the target will be scored as presented. If, however, it was a Range Official and the target score was not properly noted a reshoot will be ordered. Reviewing previous score sheets is prohibited; targets must be scored as is, using the actual target as the basis for the scoring call.

    9.1.3 Question

    But regardless of whether you pre-score or not, why make the distinction that the score will stand if taped by anyone other than a Range Official? And I really don't agree with the proposed edit of counting prematurely patched targets as mikes if they were taped by a non-RO. I've had to make shooters re-shoot a stage numerous times because well-meaning newbies have taped before I could score. Making that mistake count as mikes towards the shooter will not make the taper any friends.

    Can NROI amend a rule?

    I don't actually, as I don't follow these Shenanigans, or I would have known to check the nroi rulings. What was it about? DNROI issued a ruling allowing aftermarket hammers in Production, in clear violation of the current App D4 at the time. They knew they were going to revise the Production rules to allow aftermarket small parts, but they hadn't officially done so yet.

    9.1.3 Question

    While taking my RO recert exam, a question occurred to me. 9.1.3 states: Prematurely Patched Targets - If a target is prematurely patched or taped, which prevents a Range Official from determining the actual score, the Range Officer must order the competitor to reshoot the course of fire. However, if following the scoring of a target by any assigned Range Officer, the target is patched or taped by anyone other than a Range Officer, the score will stand as called regardless of the competitor's opportunity to see the target in question and the competitor will not be permitted to appeal the score as called. Reviewing previous score sheets is prohibited; targets must be scored as is, using the actual target as the basis for the scoring call. It's the highlighted text that prompts my question. What happens if it is a Range Officer that patches the target? Does it still stand? If so, why the distinction between an RO or another shooter if the score stands regardless? As a side note, I saw this in the draft book: 9.1.3 Prematurely Patched Targets - If a target is prematurely patched or taped, which prevents a Range Official from determining the actual score, the Range Officer must order the competitor to reshoot the course of fire. However, if following the scoring of a target by any assigned Range Officer, the target is patched or taped by anyone other than a Range Officer, the score will stand as called regardless of the competitor's opportunity to see the target in question and the competitor will not be permitted to appeal the score as called. Reviewing previous score sheets is prohibited; targets must be scored as is, using the actual target as the basis for the scoring call. Suggested edit: If a target is prematurely patched or taped which prevents a range official from determining the actual score, the Range Official must determine who patched or taped the target. If it was not a Range Official, the target will be scored as presented. If, however, it was a Range Official and the target score was not properly noted a reshoot will be ordered. Reviewing previous score sheets is prohibited; targets must be scored as is, using the actual target as the basis for the scoring call. The highlighted text, if accepted, would basically mean that a target prematurely patched by another shooter means two mikes for the shooter, rather than a reshoot.

    USPSA App

    Does anyone know if there is an alert feature in the app that lets you know when a change has been made, and to which rule, when you open the app?

    45 degree offset optic

    No. I have the normal dot zeroed for ~25 yards. My offset is more like 7.

    Sig P226 MK Problem

    I have no experience with P-series mag safeties, but if it's a simple matter of removing certain parts, you can just reinstall them before you send it back in for anything. Just make sure that, if something else does go wrong in the future, whatever is wrong still happens once you reinstall the parts. Otherwise they won't be able to replicate it (and it may have to do with the parts being missing in the first place).

    PCC start position ?

    I requested that this should be incorporated into the draft rules under 3.2. I can't find a rule prohibiting different ready conditions or start positions in the draft rulebook.

    X5 Blue bullets

    I'm assuming you guys are all talking about 320 X5's. I don't have one of those, but here's my data for an X5 Allround with a barrel that slugged to 0.3565": 125gr Blue Bullet (0.356") 3.6gr Titegroup 1.08" OAL (I load short so they also fit my wife's PPQ) Winchester WSP Mixed Brass 20 rounds Avg Vel = 1056 fps ES = 38 Sd = 8 PF = 132 Before I started using the Blue Bullets, I was using Ibejihead 124gr at 0.357". I had asked Nathan at Blue Bullets whether he recommended I use their 0.355" 9mm/.38 Super, or their 0.358" .38/.357 bullets, since my barrel slugged to 0.3565". He recommended sticking with the 9mm. For comparison, here is the load data for the Ibejiheads: 124gr Ibejihead (0.357") 3.6gr Titegroup 1.08" OAL Federal #100 SPP Mixed Brass 20 rounds Avg Vel = 1067 ES = 55 Sd = 12 PF = 132

    Shadow 2 Extended Safety in Production

    Good point. I was reading the OP as wanting to put the Shadow 2 safety on another CZ. If it's an aftermarket extended safety you want to put on your Shadow 2, you have to make sure it's not too wide and still satisfies App D4, 7: 7 Maximum size, handgun and all magazines (revolvers are exempt) Yes. Handgun with empty magazine inserted must fit wholly within a box with internal dimensions of 8 15/16" x 6" x 1 5/8" (tolerance +1/16", - 0") (8.938" x 6" x 1.625") (227.01mm x 152.40mm x 41.28mm)
