  1. I leave mine in the shooter's toolbox clip all the time. You don't actually have to deal with the screws. the timer just snaps in and out. I like the pocket clip for practice because I can clip it pretty much anywhere and it will pick up all the shots.
  2. i may have misinterpreted one post as representing the actual situation, rather than a hypothetical. but wutever. I don't really care if the shooter is dq'd or not. I would dq *all* rifle shooters. I do care that RO's are encouraging people to do dumb and unsafe stuff.
  3. unless i misunderstood it, it sounds like the RO told him to get in the make ready position (reasonable request of a range official), and then walked in front of his gun. He was pretty much *instructed* to point his gun downrange. But it doesn't hurt my feelings if you want to handle it differently.
  4. note that as described, the shooter did not point his gun at anyone. He was pointing it in a safe-ish direction, and someone walked in front of it, and he reacted immediately.
  5. it's a reasonable request however, and we expect shooters to do what the RO tells them. The more I think about it, the less I would even consider dq-ing the shooter. This one of those things that everyone needs to learn from instead of trying to be a dick. First thing to learn is to have the shooter unload and show clear if you are going downrange.
  6. If there's something I don't like, I generally try to fix it. are you RO-certified?
  7. sounds like RO interference to me, but...... also sounds like clear shooter dumbness to lower his pcc when someone was downrange, even if they were off to the side. big no-no imho. (especially when he was directed to go muzzle up). also sounds pretty crazy to try to fix the stage with the shooter's help while the shooter is holding a gun.
  8. same here, never once seen it. at locals we generally don't call a dq unless multiple people can agree on it, or unless the RO is 110% certain of what was seen. Everyone else on the squad is watching the shooter too, so if a newb RO made a bad call, it would almost certainly be reversed.
  9. I think you will find that qualified RO's dedicated to a stage will significantly *increase* the chances of you getting dq'd, just sayin'.....
  10. I'm not a top pro, but I pretty much always come a day early to big matches. part of the fun for me is looking at stages, thinking about shooting, planning, etc...
  11. I freaked out my neighbors accidentally, and I don't really blame them. They had recently moved in and the previous neighbors for 10+ years literally NEVER used the back yard. I went over and talked to them, and showed them my dry-fire magazines (dummy rounds, plastic spacer at the top), and explained that my competition guns are never ever loaded except at the range but I check them every time anyway, and then I moved the targets to the side fence so I wouldn't be pointing directly at their house. If you actually know your neighbors, It might be worth a proactive conversation to educate them... Or just lie to them and say it's an unloaded airsoft gun....
  12. Ha! you're the only one. Our personal preferences and mindset are obviously somewhat different, but I always read your posts about shooting/training/etc.... carefully. You have put the work in, you think about what you say, and you have been very helpful over the years in this forum. Your advice is good and well worth listening to and thinking about. The generic advice given by the peanut gallery to new shooters, not so much, lol. Apologies again for not making that clear in my previous post.
  13. and oftentimes adjustments to the stage based on those discussion, lol.
