  1. I never noticed the responses about the grease usage. Interesting. And some videos are classic.
  2. The continued theme that somehow shooting major makes you a tough guy is really quite amusing, like y'all are shooting 50BMG pistols, and minor guys are shooting Airsoft. I sometimes shoot limited major (.45), and I dress in a muscle shirt those days to show off how incredibly powerful I am. The fact remains, major/minor is an arbitrary relic from the past, and it will go away
  3. I'm playing the online forum game, where the rules are that discussion of opinions is a primary function. When I play the USPSA game at the range, I don't discuss opinions of rules.
  4. I understand that. But, what is the point of power factor? If it doesn't have roots in the belief that higher power factor yields more effective damage to flesh, or points to a cardboard target, then what's the point? Perhaps we can have a continuously variable scoring system where: C point value = (chrono'd velocity * bullet weight) /125,000 * 3 such that if you're shooting with exactly 125 PF, you get 3 points. But, if you up it a little to 135, now you get 3.24 points, 153 PF will give you 3.672 points for a charlie, 169 PF yields 4.056 points, and then everyone can pla
  5. If people drove cars as a means of protecting their lives, and it was deemed that the minimum requirement for effective protection was a top fuel dragster, you would. My point is that we all know through the endless, ridiculous caliber debates out there, that 9mm is just as effective at .40 or .45. So, shooting major is done only for scoring, which is absurd.
  6. If you shoot major in USPSA and carry minor in your EDC gun, you subconsciously agree that major/minor power factor is irrelevant.
  7. If the gun fits in the box, great. If people started showing up with those guns, I'd be adding lots of knock down steel to my stages.
  8. Oh, definitely any action would be fine in CO. Again, the categories are basically: Ridiculous guns (open) Normal guns (any non-open pistol, even a little 25 caliber prostitute pistol if you prefer) Normal guns with optics Revolvers for the boomers
  9. It definitely is, but I think the distinction between limited and production is unnecessary. (I failed to mention that there'd be no such thing as downloading magazines, so the distinction with fully loaded mags is unnecessary, IMO.) Crazy guns normal guns normal guns with optics Revolvers
  10. For my reelection campaign, I'll merge revolvers into limited. I figure you basically have guns that are just all out craziness (open), guns that people can reasonably carry and shoot without having to have fancy shirts, and then that same category, but with an optic. Uh oh, there's a problem. There's at least one person in Pennsylvania with an optic on his revolver! Pffft, open.
  11. I don't think that's necessarily the only possible reason people would like to do away with power factor. I can say that, because it's not my reason. I don't really care about being competitive. There will always be people I shoot better than and people who I shoot better than. That's all fine. All I want is to shoot as well as I can as an individual. The major/minor thing is just an unnecessary categorization. Open minor Open major Limited minor Limited major Revolver minor Revolver major Single stack minor Single stack major Carry O
  12. I think the idea is to get the gun that you personally shoot the best and also fits into the targeted division. The S2 fits that description for many, many people, because it's a truly fabulous gun.
  13. That must be why there's no such thing as open minor.
  14. Use less powder, lower the PF, and shoot the same $10,000 gun and still be competitive. PF segmentation and scoring are ridiculous, period.
  15. I didn't say I'll eliminate open, just stop with the power factor nonsense. People can continue to shoot their $10,000 guns all they want. If they're that worried about the being at a disadvantage now because someone with slightly lighter recoil will have the same scoring numbers, then stop shooting Cs and Ds.
