  1. Great news! Now, if I just get a message that Hard As Hell will be back in business this year, all my new year's wishes will have come true.
  2. Everyone gets more trophies? As a long time Heavy Metal shooter, I eventually gave up on the division because I was shooting against the same small pool of guys all the time. If red dots weren't so popular, I'd be happy with just Open and Tac. But having a different division for every shooter so black guns don't have to compete directly against tan guns doesn't do anything for the sport or it's participants. I've never liked Steel Challenge, and that's one of the primary reasons. Too many divisions. When you have to look at overall results just to compare yourself to more than one or two shooters, it's too diluted.
  3. For the first year of the Pro Series, we had to qualify based on performance at select major matches from the year prior. Then send them a $1200 or $1500 check for the season. (don't remember exactly how much) This money was returned at the end of the season as long as the shooter completed all the Pro Series matches. (or maybe it was 3 of the 5 matches, also don't remember) The Top 30 from the season qualified for the shoot-off at Vegas, under the lights, during SHOT show. Top 30 also secured their spot for the next season's Pro Series. Bottom 20 or so had to go to a "qualifier" with other shooters to earn their spot in the Pro Series. It worked pretty well until the end of the second season when 3GN continued changing up the rules, almost on the fly, and a full 1/2 of the Pro Series shooters told them we weren't coming back.
  4. Remember the trailer? I remember the filming. It was incredible at the time, before 3GN quit listening to the customer and decided they knew best. Yes, the stages were easy, and yes, some of us "pros" complained they were too easy. It was just a drag race. Made for good TV for the first couple matches, but got stale quick. At each match, there would be a few guys with stage times tied at the hundredth of second. On the eye pro- yeah, those clips with Kalani and Burkett without glasses were filmed off to the side, and it was just an oversight.
  5. Build date on my gun without the LCI is 12/6/19.
  6. I won a certificate for an X5 Legion back in August. It showed up direct from Sig at my dealer Friday. No LCI notch in the barrel.
  7. New owners of property are scheduled to close tomorrow. Hope to know something after that.
  8. I generally agree with most of what you say, Kelly. But I draw the line at "classic" targets. Reduce the size of a metric as much as needed, but all targets should have heads.
  9. Most 3 gun competitors have attention deficit disorder, which is why we don't really care for USPSA. 3 Gun exploded in popularity about 7 years ago. These hearty folks have been shooting as many matches as possible for the past several years. Squirrel.
  10. I was not able to go this past weekend, but there was a 10K run and gun on Saturday and a 5K rimfire run and gun on Sunday. From all accounts I've seen, it was business as usual. I have not seen anything released as of yet on the change in ownership.
  11. The hotel was purchased by one individual, most of the rest of the property was purchased by another buyer. "User agreement" should be finalized this week is what I've heard, and all us locals are hopeful that Rockcastle Shooting Center is still open for business.
  12. As others have said, anything with a Flight Control wad patterns tight. Some matches prohibit FC, so for those I use Remington 8 pellet low recoil LE buckshot. It is almost as tight as the Federal. And can frequently be found for around $0.70/round.
  13. Not much traffic on Enos these days- but another BRM3G in the books. I have had the pleasure (pain?) of RO'ing a decade's worth of Blue Ridge Mountain 3 Gun, and this one did not disappoint. Some say this one was more difficult from the previous several matches, but I had to remind these shooters we're all older now too. This is the match that made me love the sport, and so many of the shooters I talked to this year said this is their favorite match of the year. Imagine that many crazy people all grouped together in one place. There's nothing I liked more than trailing each and every shooter on stage 4 and hearing them sucking wind when I said "Unload and show clear".
  14. Let's wait until after next weekend to make such broad statements.
  15. This is good news. I won a certificate for a X-5 Legion, sent it in about 4 weeks ago, and the cert says "allow 16 weeks for delivery." Hopefully they are shipping guns without the LCI notch by the time mine goes out.
