  1. i have had two "fizzle" load in my time...fortunately it was a sideway primers and the bullet never left the casing to get a squib.
  2. on hand in general or on hand at a match? In general, I have at least 10 on hand for the pistols I compete with. I like to have at least 5 for those I don't. Get more if your budget allows it. I usually but them if there is a good deal on them. it's never a bad thing to have more...
  3. after you take off the glock pad once, it's easy after that...
  4. you have a safety on your Canik that you can apply???? You don't have to lay your fingers against the receiver...just have to be out of the trigger guard. laying it on the receiver just makes it easier for the RO to 100% see that the finger is out of the trigger guard...
  5. the bullet would still not be in the case...
  6. no - an observation
  7. NP - well, that's an isolated situation...i can see how you would be bitter...
  8. i see a lot of complaining in this thread...
  9. if you're not short, you really don't see those challenges...we make it look easy cause we're used to doing it...and we don't usually complain...
  10. there are more advantages for being taller than shorter in our sport...how often do you see low ports compared to having to reach around walls without having to really stretch??? having to take 5 steps from one port to the next instead of 2 or 3 is another big advantage for being taller...that is for 90% of the stages... so yeah - i wish i was taller for most of the stages we shoot...
  11. yes, a good RO will be expecting every possible infraction at any moment...but they cannot predict where the infraction will occur - referring back to your suggestion to place an RO in a location to be able to see the finger in the trigger infraction...
  12. because stuff happens in different places for different people...and as an CRO/RO, you don't see these infractions until much later when the photos come out, so you couldn't place an RO to look out for such infractions at any "appropriate" location for this type of an infraction. "Finger in trigger" is not an infraction that you are expecting someone to do like breaking the 180 at this location or foot fault at that location. Remember, as an RO - you are there to assist the shooter to navigate the course safely, not try and catch them at a DQable moment. The photographer is usually stat
  13. I don't think so. most of the time it's the shooter sprinting away from their position leaving the RO not in a good position to see the infraction. and it all happens so fast that if the RO is not 100% sure, he shouldn't be calling the DQ. the RO does not get to view pictures from every possible angle to make the call. even pictures can be deceiving - example: the second picture above posted by Nasty618 - I don't think that his finger is in the trigger guard in that picture...at least I am not 100% sure, so I will not call a DQ on that one...even with the picture.
