  1. As the odd man out here, I tend to like Smoke & Hope as the starter as it gets my body moving fast early on with a good margin for error. We've had some real complaints from local shooters when they get moved to something other than their preferred starting stage. It really doesn't matter to me, but S&H is my goto starter when available. AD
  2. Now that I figured out how to find it it shows 414. Obviously none of the paper matches prior to Practiscore are in there. AD

    I agree 100% AD

    Probably to make sure everybody is on the same page when shooting the stage with regards to barriers, limits, etc. Just like it explains in 3.3.1 of the rule book. AD

    I'm sure they meant Tactical Priority but just flubbed the description. AD
  6. Our 5 scoring tablets are now set up with static IP's as are the Master tablets. When I logged into the router to see the addresses it was pretty much an ugly mess and my "troublesome" tablet was sitting at "247". Now they're all set at the front of the pack with manageable addresses. And I do believe I'll reboot that router once a month, just for good measure. It's hard to get good help around our stats shack, that's for sure! AD
  7. Why didn't I think of that???? Thanks for the idea. AD
  8. Ditto on the Mcarbo extractor for the Ruger. Look at a factory extractor vs the Mcarbo. The difference (for the good) will be obvious. AD
  9. I kind of like that. I see the guys sitting on the bench just watching the other 10 guys shoot and then waltz up when it's their turn. I may have to issue a slight nudge to get these guys moving, or like you said, let them reset their own stage when they're up.. AD
  10. 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
  11. As much as I hate to open an old thread like this, raceguns9's answer was just what I was looking for. Thanks. AD
  12. 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
  13. Perhaps the confusion came in because the flag IS required, even in the bag, under Steel Challenge (USPSA) rules? AD
  14. 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
  15. 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
  16. 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
  17. And that's what I did. Solves the future renewal problem. AD
  18. 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
  19. Luckily I found a desktop computer with Windows 95 on it and paid my renewal using MS-DOS tonight. AD
  20. Now where in the heck did I leave my spats? Probably next to my Arrow collars in the drawer. AD
  21. 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
  22. 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
