Looks for Target

Looks for Target (4/11)

  1. As to the higher growth, 17% of a low number means a lot less that 3% of a huge number. So there’s that. It should split off on its own. It is completely different sport and there is very little overlap in terms of shooters that practice both.
  2. BINGO!!! This is what the original post states, "The case head is separated just enough so that the extractor cannot eject the case, however, the case head is still attached to the rest of the case." This is an obstructed barrel - easily removed with a pocket knife - as we have been doing since time immemorial..... But according to the definition it is a "Squib" and a DQ if you try to clear it.
  3. Exactly my point. We have been clearing these jams forever. Heck, there is even a thread on Enos on how to do it on the clock… I opine that the definition of ‘squib’ needs to be revisited.
  4. Except that for most firearms the barrel is inclusive of the chamber and the bore. But you are right in that it is not a "squib" as we all know a squib to be. It appears that in the process of making the clearing of a squib a DQ'able offense in the recent rules updates, the definition of a 'Squib' was not reviewed. Maybe it should say "solid obstructions in the BORE of the barrel"
  5. Sorry to have been so obtuse in the original post, the question was not “what not to do in the event of a squib” but rather “what constitutes a squib”. For most, including the shooter, a case head separation is not a squib - the bullet has long left the barrel. However, the definition of a squib includes a stuck bullet and or anything “solid” stuck in the barrel. That is what I wanted other’s thoughts on. Thanks!
  6. Level 1 match - user experiences a partial case head separation during the COF. The case head is separated just enough so that the extractor cannot eject the case, however, the case head is still attached to the rest of the case. Shooter proceeds to get an L shaped rod out of their pocket, and inserting it from the front of the muzzle, proceeds to clear the case. Shooter DOES NOT sweep themselves while clearing the spent case due to the shape of the rod. Shooter continues to complete the COF. Discussion then ensues as to a DQ based on 10.5.2 Shooter argues successfully that a spent case suffering from case head failure is not a squib. However, weeks later (as I take the NROI exam) I visit the definition of a Squib: "A bullet or solid obstruction lodged inside the barrel of a firearm." Being that the spent case with the partial head separation impedes access through the barrel, it meets the definition of a solid obstruction. As such a case head separation during a COF and ANY attempt to clear, be it with the L shaped squib rod or with a pocket knife would be a DQ'able offense under 10.5.2. Thoughts?
  7. "Because "handling" comes from the latin term "Hand" which means.....blah blah blah blah blah......" Don't feed the troll dude...
  8. AWESOME! I won't have to deal with the absurd pomposity of a self absorbed individual. The individual's perceived importance, however delusional, was good for a laugh. Until the pity kicked in....
  9. Is there a way to block the posts or responses of a particular user? anyway, good stuff here. I am sure NROI will make an article out of this.
  10. Look at the ABSTAIN votes. Look at the unanimity of YAY votes. Very Intresting.
  11. Has this ever happened? First off, weak RM and MD who did not see the shoot through Secondly, it is usually very easy to see which hit went through hard cover on a cardboard target as Bullets travel in a straight line. Perhaps the reason the rule does not exist is because of how unrealistic the scenario being discussed is.
  12. Scarcity and price increases are the result of too much money chasing too few goods. Get used to it. https://fred.stlouisfed.org/series/M1
  13. Scrupulous? More like just following the rules.... 2.1.1, and 2.1.4
