  1. Fun drill to shoot and I think he only got 10 cause he was shooting his SS w/10 round mags. Cheers.

    Virginia stage penalty question

    I just looked at the PractiScore app and 1 penalty on that stage worked out to cost 36.95sec, no wonder the RO didn’t care to score things right. ZERO, next.....

    Virginia stage penalty question

    Plus 1, with that line of thinking. IPSC has some rules that I like and some I don’t and vise-versa. But that’s a different topic.

    Virginia stage penalty question

    He said, you had an extra shot in T-1, then you reloaded out of sequence, then you engage T-2 and T-3 with 2 rounds each, out of sequence. I’m pretty sure it’s better to shoot a make up in that situation, Virginia count and the complete miss. I was going to get the other RO until he put the pen down and said “its not going make a difference, you’re going to ZERO the stage anyway”. I don’t care if I missed 6 of the 7 shots, I want the score is shot not it’s a zero anyway. That’s when I decided to just walk off.. It’s another lesson learned. Thanks for all the replies

    Yes, I agree that should have talked to one of the RM or the MD especially with it being Nats.

    Virginia stage penalty question

    No sir. The 2nd shot at T-1 was a miss over right shoulder so I shot the 3rd before my reload. So total hits on each target was 2. I thought 1 penalty for extra shot before the reload. I stopped counting the penalties after he wrote the 5th X on my score sheet and I ask what is all that? His reasoning made me just walk away. I was truly amazed.
  8. Stage requirements are engage T-1 with 2 rounds only, preform a mandatory reload and engage T-2 & T-3 with only 2rounds each. Shooter engaged T-1 with 3 rounds (called mike was the reason for 3rd third shot on T-1) then preformed the mandatory reload and engaged T-2 & T-3 with the required 2 rounds each. What is the shooters penalty or penalties on this Virginia stage? Thank you.
  9. It has been held at Universal Shooting Academy in Frostproof and I’m fairly sure nothing has changed.

    Shooting with better shooters...

    Good advice. I wouldn’t try to shoot like they do, just learn and shoot your game. Then the advice they give will be what you really need and not how to clean up the mess you made of the stage trying to shoot like them.

    9 major or 38 super comp for open?

    I like shooting 9 in my open gun. I found a major load both my gun and i am happy with so I’m sticking with it. Cheers all

    9 major or 38 super comp for open?

    Every gun is different but most like .38 super ir comp more than 9. It takes some effort to get 9 reliable as super or comp.

    9 major or 38 super comp for open?

    That’s been the consensus for most of my time shooting open too.

    9 major or 38 super comp for open?

    I was doing the same. Then I went back to 3n38 for 9 (I was always using 3n38 for super-comp) and worked on my loads till the 9 and comp were close enough to the same recoil impulse or the dot moved really close to the same ahooting both I just stuck 9 for all my open shooting. Yes, 38 super comp feels a bit softer, is easier to eject, load and reload but once I got my gun to run (eject) without any issues and got the dots to move the same I just didn't miss the price or chasing that comp brass after I shot it. Now my 9 is ultra reliable and has been reliable for a while. It took some trial and error to get the 9 to run without any issues like comp seemed to do from the jump. I'm sure it's not as hard as I might make it seem but in getting my 9 running as good as with comp I learned everything I'll need to know about a 2011 from getting a crisp 2 lb break to getting brass to land in a 5 gallon bucket and knowing how fit and fix anything that may go south at a match was worth the effort to me. Good luck
