  1. Hmm, some good thoughts on the mags. I've been running with the big stick but will have to try running the normal mags loaded to 15 for an upcoming Classifier match. AD

    Thoughts on increasing membership/clubs

    Thanks for bringing up the ICORE membership "problem". Interesting discussion for sure. I have found over the past several years that attempting to bring in shooters to IDPA, USPSA, Steel Challenge, 3-Gun, etc that what works for me is to offer up the game as a challenge for a shooter AND HIS BUDDY. A single new shooter comes in scared, excited, bewildered and only probably knows the one guy who invited him to shoot. He sees the super fast guys and get dejected, especially after seeing his own performance for the first time on the clock. However, if you get that same guy to bring his best shooting buddy with him then you get a lot of personal and one on one shooting as they can compare against each other and plan on challenging the "other guy" to a rematch the next week. They are not nearly as intimidated by all the super fast guys with the ultra competitive outlook. I've seen this a lot. Shooting pairs brings back more repeat shooters than your basic single. Throw in some advertising at ALL of the local gun stores in the surrounding counties to encourage simple competition among friends and you've found the hook. Local gun stores are never a problem with having advertising flyers like these put out as it eventually will bring a shooter back for supplies or perhaps a newer firearm. I had seriously considered starting an ICORE chapter down here but our range's shooting schedule is pretty full now and we are very lucky to be able to draw on most of south and southwest Florida for 5 matches a week. As many of these guys shoot in multiple venues, adding another shoot, and with revolvers, would be only for the few hardy souls that run it in IDPA and USPSA from time to time. But then, if we could drag out some of those people with revolvers sitting in a sock drawer year after year, you might get a whole new group involved. I have had some luck with the occasional BUG shooter who brings a revolver to a match to explain what ICORE is. Most have never heard of it. I'd say we have a recognition problem among people who are not already active club shooters. Oh yeah. I believe newer, younger shooters want to run and gun. I've seen some nice run and gun ICORE stages. That part shouldn't be a problem. Lots of fun. The people I've seen in ICORE are pretty dedicated to the wheel gun and a great bunch. This is good, but then we know a good firearm when we see one and it comes with a cylinder! AD

    Shooting a match with your EDC rig

    Most of the guys on my normal squad are running their EDC for our weekly match. Not a big deal and a few guys have discovered that what they "used" to carry was not that good! AD

    Ammo Catching @ match

    When I get a shooter who rushes the ULSC it's just like you mentioned. Have them show it again to YOU and then continue on. AD

    Is Revolver officially dead

    I enjoy shooting the revolver in IDPA or ICORE (Classic) and even Steel Challenge as it makes me focus a bit more than when running your normal bottom feeder. Steel Challenge is where your accuracy takes over instead of volume. The added fun in beating some of your buddies and telling them they got burned by the old guy with the revolver is icing on the cake! AD (strictly 6 shot for me, thank you)

    What is the state of the union? (Not political)

    That just about sums it up nicely. AD

    Scoring confusion

    Yep, you got it. AD
  10. I tossed that 8 shot in there in case the ICORE guys need something fast and to show that the stage was "neutral" to everyone. AD
  11. Hey, I recently designed (and shot) a stage like that. Yes, it was for an IDPA match but having the 3 targets take one each to the body then re-engage with a Mozambique to each from 3 to 5 yards and you had a speed stage that was neutral for all the divisions. 6 and 8 shot revolvers as well as all the semi-autos ALL needed to reload. And to make it a bit challenging, only the "Alphas" (or in our case, the "zero") counted with a few non-threats tossed in at "interesting" spots. Pretty much everyone said it was a good stage to shoot, especially the really fast guys as they duked it out to the tenth of a second. AD

    Bull barrels

    At a Level 1 match (local) you wouldn't have any problem shooting in the SPD division. The Glock 40 doesn't fit "The Box". At a Level 2 and higher, I doubt it as you would be taking away from the legal gun slots. AD

    Scoring Procedure

    Absolutely 100%. The timer is held for the estimated last shots so I can see it picking up the shot. The guy with the Nook can see it when I point it back and him and he repeats the time when I call it. The shooter, the scorer and myself all come up with the same time for the stage. AD
