    Production to 15 rounds instead of 10.

    or production. why force everyone to buy new 1911's just to reload more often? IMHO, people agitating for new rules that render significant numbers of existing competition guns obsolete need to just <<removed by Admin.>>.

    Classifier system: a modest proposal

    wut? who said it bothered me? It might bother current GM's, but ultimately classification is just a distraction for most people, and it keeps them from getting better.

    Setting up Max Traps - No Shoot Placement

    that's something i always check. note that the rule says visible 'around overlapping no-shoots'. To me, that means you can't cut it close and line up the perf of the no-shoot with the perf of the lower a-zone. I think you have to line up the edge of the non-scoring border of the no-shoot. I also think it is wise to give an extra 1/8" or so just to prevent weeping and wailing and differences of opinion.

    so you want to make it substantially easier to make GM? right now it's more like 1-3% depending on the division.

    Single Stack or Production?

    If you shoot 30 charlies in a match you should aim more. just sayin'..... I've shot quite a bit of minor and major both. the big advantage to minor in most matches is having makeup shots available without standing reloads. It only takes a few standing reloads to cancel out the 12-15 charlies you *should* be getting in a 6-7 stage local match. For the OP, I prefer SS to production just because the rules are less annoying, but in general, a cz production gun will run better than a 9mm 1911. 45 of course is a different animal entirely, but mine have been ultra-reliable.

    why should you? You say it like it's self-evidently true, but it isn't. It's just like.. your opinion, man....

    you bought the wrong gun if you want to compete with magazines loaded to capacity. Don't try to change the rules just because you bought the wrong gun.

    no, because that turns it into a gear race, and after 1 season, everyone will be running the 1 semi-custom race gun that holds the most rounds. Right now pretty much every mfr makes a reasonably competitive gun. Heck, when I shoot production, I do it with a cz 40. Losing the 10 round limit would make those guns useless. if you want to load your 9mm all the way up, shoot welfare-open.... umm, i mean CO.

    i disagree. I was a skeptic initially, but now I always try to squad with all the pcc guys. It takes them so long to shoot that we are always the last squad to finish, so all the teardown is done except the stage we finish on (for bonus points, plan to finish on a classifier or speedshoot with no walls or barrels).

    in theory, all divisions should be restricted to state limits if they are really limits on possession of magazines (as opposed to just limits on sales of new mags).

    This was interesting... a lesson in hand loading

    yeah, i've loaded well over 100k rounds in the last 6 years, and that was a first for me.

    i use lee dies, so the decapping pin generally slips in the collet instead of breaking, but just last week I had a weird stoppage on my 650, very hard to push the handle all the way down. I looked and scratched my head and took out that case from the sizer, next one did the same thing. Finally figured out I had a 9mm hollow-point bullet impaled on my decapping pin. It was apparently inside the first case, and my shoving hard just stuck it onto the decapper where it interfered with the next case too.

    from 1994-2004 all magazines were limited to 10 rounds. Canada is still limited to 10 rounds.

    i haven't heard anyone talking about this except for a few guys who hate reloading but are scared of limited. Certainly no one in leadership is talking about it. It seems more sensible to me to have to switch back and forth between uspsa and ipsc rather than switch back and forth between california and the rest of the western states.
