  1. I don't care who is negatively affected, I just thought it was weird to put in the amount of work to set a new baseline, and then not evenly apply that new baseline in determining the classifications. Previously we measured boards in inches, and right or wrong or who thought we should do it differently was immaterial it was at least consistent. Now, we measuring some boards in inches, some in centimeters, and we ain't telling you which was which we just giving you a number. It is what it is, but to me it seems like in a genuine effort to improve the classification system was half-implemented and in the end it made the system less meaningful. I think they should follow through and retroactively implement the new HHF on all existing classifications. People can argue right or wrong still, but again at least would be consistent.
  2. Didn't mean resetting like starting over. Meant retroactively applying the new HHF to your existing body of work. ie, if you are a 78% A class now, but using the new HHF retroactively you are a 69% B, then you get re-classed as a B and go from there. Could be done on a Wednesday night for the whole membership.
  3. To me it seems weird to make such a big change and not retroactively reset everyone. Whether they get easier or harder is immaterial. It skews the comparative use of the classification system the way it was done, imho. I always thought the classification system was to compare yourself to others in your class, like see how you did relative to the other guys in B class, for example, but now you not sure if other guys are pre-change B's or post-change Bs, or would've been A's but started after the change and are post-change B's, etc. Everyone who is classified from this date forward, all the newer shooters will be set right and can be equally compared, but everyone who was classed prior without retroactively resetting them it will have to be done by attrition as they either quit or die off, which could take decades lol, and by that time they'll have to reset the scores again. I think changing the HHF to reflect reality was a great idea and the right thing to do. I think not following through and resetting previously shot classifiers and adjusting everyone's classifications on the new baseline was a bad idea.
  4. An RO should not start a competitor in the wrong start position. If they hands are down or they standing in the wrong start position on a field course in uspsa, we don't give them a start signal and then penalize later, we say he dude feet on XXs or hey dude hands above shoulders. Any RO that starts a competitor in the wrong box and then penalizes the competitor for it is a dickhead.
  5. No, its not much difference if you just doing frostproof, but if he's staying around Disney and visiting it for a few days after MCO his best bet.
  6. Online registration and giving MS residents priority registration is great news. I'm looking forward to it.
  7. Congrats on the slot! Fly into MCO. Rent a house in frostproof, or Hampton Inn in Lake Wales, or Lots of options further south in Sebring, or Stay close to Disney and drive down each day. I've done about all of them. If bringing family, stay at Disney, let them go play, the drive is about an hour to the range. No carry at Disney. 100% bag check and metal detector as of my last trip in January.
  8. Great match, great stages, love the half day format. Thanks to everyone who makes this match possible.
  9. Match was amazing in every aspect. Huge thanks to all those that put in the effort to make it happen!
  10. We just wrapped up the MS State NSSF Rimfire Challenge Championship and moving on to the Rosco Manufacturing MS CQB Rifle Championship later this month, and then the Freedom Gunworks Limited State Championship in September.
  11. The 2017 CK Arms Mississippi Open State Championship is in the books, and it was another great match in the Mississippi State Championships Series. The match had a little bit of everything, mostly searing high heat for those that shot on Saturday, and on and off showers and constant mud for those that shot on Sunday. The final tally was 86 total competitors competing on 10 challenging stages that featured some of the highest difficulty and distance of all our matches so far. Stage 1, Eight is Enough, was a short course speed shoot that featured 4 paper and 4 steel and required only 1 hit per paper. Mel Rodero took the stage win with a smoking run of 6.82 seconds. Stage 2, Shuffling Around, was a 12-round short course that featured a paper and steel array with a mandatory reload. Max Michel Jr. took the stage here, with James Lofton second at 91%. Stage 3, Hide n Seek, was a 22-round long course that featured a T shape that saw most competitors cut around the corner at the start. Max Michel Jr. won this stage, with Jason Welch right on his tail at 86%. Stage 4, Sit or Swing, was a 16 round medium course that featured a seated start and a swinger activated by either of two poppers. Max Michel Jr. Won this stage, just edging out Ogie Delarosa at 73%. Stage 5, To Drop or Not, was a 26 round long course that featured a drop Turner with disappearing targets activated by a stomp box. Max Michel Jr. won this stage, with James Lofton taking a strong second at 95%. Stage 6, No Drop, wasa 24 round long course that featured backward movement after starting on a deactivated stomp box. Max Michel Jr. Won the stage, with James Lofton taking second at 88%. Stage 7, Rack it, was a 29 round long course with forward movement that featured an unloaded start and mags staged on barrels. James Lofton won this stage with a 7.1 hit factor. Stage 8, Backtrack it, was a 29 round long course that featured backward movement through the stage and an unloaded start. Max Michel Jr. won this stage, with James Lofton was second at 77%. Stage 9, Running Shoes, was a 32 round long course that featured competitors covering a lot of real estate and 11 pieces of steel. Max Michel Jr. won this stage by a country mile, with James Lofton second at 75%. Stage 10, Standing Steel, was a 12 round short course that featured a paper array and steel array with a mandatory reload. The trick being the paper, including partials, was at 20 yards, and the steel at 35 yards. Max Michel won this stage with a 9 second run, and James Lofton was second at 91%.

CK Arms Match Gun Winner - Nick Bolo Full Results at the link below:https://practiscore.com/results/new/40003 Want to give a huge thanks to everyone who helped RO, setup, and everyone who played a part in making this match happen. As always, we had numerous people step up and put in a lot of effort to make the match happen and make it a success. Also want to that our sponsors, who donated prizes for our competitors: CK Arms, Max's Choice, The Blue Bullets, Montana Gold, and Studio 6. See you at the next match!
  12. If you think someone is purposefully pre-pasting to bail a buddy out of a bad run, DQ them for cheating/unsportsmanlike conduct. Let the RM sort it out from there.
  13. We kickoff at 9am because we're setting up stages from 6am to 9am.
  14. The 2017 CK Arms Mississippi Open State Championship is set to take place this weekend, July 22nd & 23rd at Coast Rifle and Pistol Club near Biloxi, MS, and the stage is set for fierce competition throughout all classes and categories, with nearly 110 competitors signed up as of mid-week. It promises to be a hot and humid July weekend in South Mississippi with ten challenging courses of fire to determine the champions. In the overall match, the heavy favorite is Max Michel Jr. With his preparations for the upcoming World Shoot in full swing, the only way we see the reigning World Champ not taking 1st overall here is if he gets lost on the way to the range. Nipping at his heels in the combined overall looks to be fellow GM Mel Rodero, along with master shooters John Nguyen, Brandon Guillory, and Max Michel Sr. For the MS State Championship, reigning State Champ Bryan Tullos is looking for the repeat, where he edged out Roger Henn for the title. Those two again look to be the favorites for the State title, with the wildcard being Roger's dad Gerwin Henn with a puncher's chance. Gerwin has been steamrolling through the MS State Championship Series this year picking up title after title so he's always a factor. Also within striking distance on any given match day is Bill Mahley, as well as the reigning Mississippi Open Steel Champion Trent Cliburn, who is relatively new to the USPSA scene and comes into this match unclassified, but we've seen him shoot enough of his open gun to know he could be a threat. In the Senior division, it looks to be a two horse race between Max Michel and George Hemstad, although AJ McCartney could make a move here giving the other two a head start as he's shooting Open Minor. In Super Senior, the ones to watch out for are Charlie Black, Adelo Aquino, and Gale Butler. In the junior division, we have a stacked field of rising talent with eight juniors total. Look for CK Arms shooter Deven Wagner here, as well as Limited phenom Jonathan Jones as he is crossing over into open. Also the aformentioned MS State Steel Open Champ Trent Cliburn. In the ladies division, we have a great turnout of nine shooters. The favorites here are Janice Pacleb, Elizabeth Young, and Ruth Mahley. That makes 17 total juniors and ladies, which is a pretty amazing turnout if it holds up. Along with the stacked category fields, we also have very deep class battles taking place, with 15 'A' class, 24 'B' class, and 27 'C' class shooters duking it out for the top three spots in each respective class. It looks to be a very competitive field and action packed weekend at the 2017 CK Arms Mississippi Open State Championship. Good luck to all competitors, and see you aat the match!
  15. Did they actually take that away from ROs that made mistakes?
