  1. Mixed squads, or is revolver a separate match? Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
  2. Can one person be pissed off about sandbagging and grandbagging at the same time? Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
  3. USPSA HQ doesn't really do statistics. Just after the change that allowed 8 shot minor in revo, HQ told me "I wish the top shooters would get out there and shoot some classifiers." The problem with the classifier system is that we base everything on what someone has actually shot. The high hit factor should be set 2 standard deviations higher than the average hit factor. This would mean that 99.8% of the classifiers shot would score less than 100%. You don't need 10 GM's to set the HHF, you just need a statistically valid number of shooters. For matches there is probably a statistically valid way to do it, but that's well beyond me. My statistics class was 25 years ago. Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
  4. Does she have qualifications outside of being a B class production shooter? Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
  5. What type of matches were these? USPSA matches are shot freestyle, legal if you don't sweep yourself. Likely to make people nervous, but legal. Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
  6. Imho, unless you shoot limited and already have a bunch of it laying around, 40 doesn't make a lot of sense for single stack. 40 gives you a capacity advantage in limited, not in single stack. I already loaded 45 for my revolver so getting a 45 was a no brainier. If I didn't reload, I'd shoot 9. Single stack is the one division where major and minor compete on a fairly even playing field. 2 extra rounds isn't a joke in an 8 round position with steel. I think the benefits of the extra ammo are even greater the further you are from making GM. Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
  7. Do you wear prescription glasses? Are you looking over the top of your frames? Are you actively pushing your forearms down onto the ground? This can change the elevation of your point of impact. Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
  8. I agree with Mike. I will add that you do not need a front sight focus for all shots. You need different sight pictures at different distances. I will admit that in ICORE the point at which you need to switch over to a better sight picture does happen a little bit closer than it does shooting USPSA.
  9. There is a third possiblity, though I've never used it, Taylor throating. Here's an link discussing the process. https://www.grantcunningham.com/2008/08/does-taylor-throating-really-work/ I would probably lean towards cutting the shoulder back.
  10. Production numbers have dropped off in Eastern Colorado as well. It generally seems to be the lower classified shooters that have moved to other divisions. I think production numbers were bolstered by it being the only "9mm-only" division. We now have 3 divisions that are scored minor only, so people can choose. Regardless of capacity, PCC and carry optics guns are easier to shoot and they will move you up in the overall results.
  11. You'd find more of us revolver shooters in the revo forum, but I'll help. Many folks get the sight picture they want and try to make the gun go bang before it moves. It's a revolver, the sights will move while you pull the trigger. It takes time to pull the trigger, you need to aim -while- you're pulling the trigger not just before. As you get more comfortable you will find the trigger pull begins before the sight picture is finalized. To shoot a revolver in our game, you need to keep it running. Jerry's DVD covers this stuff and it's worth buying a copy. In practice, shooting at match speed, pull the trigger straight back and aim during the pull. This next part is important, the trigger is released at the same speed it is pulled. The trigger swings back and forth in the trigger guard like a metronome. Same smooth trigger speed in both directions. The speed of the metronome varies with the target presentation. Do -not- stage the trigger, this is not a bottom feeder. If you don't keep it smooth you will tend to snatch the trigger too aggressively on the pull, you will pull it off target. There are no double taps. Two aimed shots. You must use a less precise aiming method on easy targets, but you need to place 2 aimed shots. If you're in Eastern Colorado we can go to the range together.
  12. This is unenforceable, at least it's not enforceable in a fair and consistent way. That's how we ended up where we are now. Do you know factory parts look like for all the obscure guns on the production list?
  13. Right? They probably expect people will put the moon clip in with their right hand. [emoji48]
