  1. We've done the "two timer" thing also. Works well and if you mark the "PCC timer" with tape, then everyone knows that's the one to use when the PCC guys show up. Hopefully you'll have enough timers on hand to do this and seeing as how most shooters have a timer in their bag, it gets borrowed for the match from time to time. Of course when you "borrow" one of the AMG timers, it works even better! AD
  2. As much as I hate to open an old thread like this, raceguns9's answer was just what I was looking for. Thanks. AD
  3. Same here. Worked quite well. AD
  4. I was debating whether or not to reply to the thread as the last time I did this I caught all kinds of grief, but not from this forum. I am in the Revolver minority with regards to equipment. Stone Stock S&W 686. Safariland J-GL8S III speed loaders. Factory ammo that's on sale in bulk. (Yes, it even makes PF in ICORE) Plain Fobus LK-4 holster. Yes, you can make Master in IDPA if you can reload. The reloads take a LOT of time to practice and several Band-Aids to fix your hands. If you're not bleeding, you're not practicing those reloads enough!! The 686 is very accurate right out of the box and seeing how IDPA has the six round capacity limit, it's a perfect fit. A Ruger GP-100 is my backup should the 686 crap out during a match. It hasn't so far. AD
  5. Perhaps the confusion came in because the flag IS required, even in the bag, under Steel Challenge (USPSA) rules? AD
  6. From reading this thread so far can it be that I'm the only person who unbags at a table at the side berm and walks to the starting position with the PCC flagged and vertical when it's my turn to shoot? After the stage is completed, I flag and then carry the PCC back to the table (vertical, of course) and rebag and zip closed. I do not bring my entire bag/case to the line, just the PCC. AD
  7. And in a more serious note (I'm an iron sight, 6 shooter guy, how serious can I be?) anyway, the email to ICORE was answered promptly with a Paypal invoice. Paid it, got the receipt. Numbers updated. ICORE membership packet showed up via postal mail shortly thereafter. After all my whining and complaining about it, the entire renewal went very smoothly and quickly. AD
  8. That's odd. Steel Challenge is the perfect place to shoot both iron and optic PCC's. The guys slowing up the group are NOT the PCC guys, at least not at our 5 matches a month. AD
  9. And that's what I did. Solves the future renewal problem. AD
  10. My neighbor next door wanted to know what the heck was with the guy on the horse delivering something in the mail to me today. I told him it was the Pony Express dispatch rider with my updated membership from ICORE! AD
  11. Luckily I found a desktop computer with Windows 95 on it and paid my renewal using MS-DOS tonight. AD
  12. Now where in the heck did I leave my spats? Probably next to my Arrow collars in the drawer. AD
  13. Well, now that this ICORE membership thing has been brought up again, I figured I can't wait any longer for a civilized membership renewal plan so went ahead and did the "request email thing" today. Still don't have any stamps in the house so it defaulted to the email thingie. AD
  14. With all of the whining and gnashing of teeth about PCC in IDPA, the small amount of my group (including me) that shoots PCC tries to keep the noise down by shooting "HSO". Head Shots Only. Doesn't really slow you down all that much, even when shooting the weak shoulder targets. It does keep the ESP guys from complaining, which is good. AD
  15. Wow! A solution in under 25 messages. I do believe that's some kind of world record. AD
  16. I'll be 72 this year. If you are physically able to practice, consider it a blessing. I do. AD
  17. Gotta agree with that one. I shoot with a few guys who are all just about equal in shooting ability on my regular squad but Outer Limits just kills them. The main difference is the time from the second shot to the third shot. I'm easily 1.5 to 2.5 seconds faster in that place. I did put in a serious amount of practice time taking those first three shots. Par timed the first two. Par timed the transition from 2 to 3. And finally par timed the finish. Once it was broken down it was obvious where I could pick up some time and that was in the transition from the 2nd shot to the 3rd! Our shooting box is a combination of dirt, mud, gravel and half the time, water. Equally bad for everybody! AD
  18. Rule covers a False Start. Rule 10.2.6 covers "creeping" at the start. The former is a restart. The latter is a PE. But that's from the USPSA Rulebook. Couldn't find anything mentioned in the Steel Challenge book. AD
  19. Because that's the next step which will either involve paying via credit card over the phone (OK, I can deal with that) or most probably getting the PayPal link sent to me, which I can deal with or just stop being stubborn and print out the pdf file and mail it in while I wait another month or so for the renewal (like last time). I guess I'll email her today and hope that next year's renewal in online. Luckily for me the little girl that sells lemonade on the side of the road at the corner has a "Square" reader on her phone. AD
  20. Any updates on the online renewal process? I'm deep into my "grace" period and would really like to renew before the Sept IRC. Or am I forced to find my checkbook, dust it off, and attempt to mail a check in. Now where in the heck are those 3 cent stamps I bought 15 years ago?? Somewhere in the bottom of the junk drawer with my spare Centronics printer cables. AD (extra credit if you even know what a Centronics printer cable looks like)
  21. It would appear that running/movement with the muzzle pointed down (or at the berm) would always be preferred compared to movement with the muzzle pointed OVER the berm. Light one off with the muzzle at the ground and it's no problem (the 10 foot rule applies, of course) but launch one over the berm and you're usually done for the day. AD
  22. Yep. Correct on both counts for sure. Hard to beat the FUN factor though. AD
