  1. I clean the crown periodically with a dental pick and a pure copper scrub pad.
  2. Are you trying to say consciously? Sent from my ONEPLUS A6003 using Tapatalk
  3. That's not revelatory, considering how our scoring model works. More stages (really more match points) tends to dilute, or modulate, both peaks and valleys, rewarding consistency. You can also conceptualize more stages as more opportunities to make mistakes. So here we are, back where we started. Sent from my ONEPLUS A6003 using Tapatalk
  4. Sorry, bud, but you're all over the place here. We've gone from a 20+ stage nats is too big/long/inconvenient, to a 10 stage single day nats, to an 8-event area match points scheme. I don't really understand where you're coming from. What I said is that a 20 stage match is a better test than a 10 stage match; that can't really be rebutted. Ultimately, I'm not sure what you perceive to be *wrong* with our current system of determining champions, at least on a macro level. The matches on the micro level could be improved, sure. But I feel pretty confident that the best guys will always show up for nats, and more often than not the single best guy is the one who wins.
  5. A Nationals needs to be 20+ because the more data you have, the more accurate result you will get. More stages = more stratification along skill levels and instances of luck/chance are less heavily weighted in the results. Also, a long match tends to test mental endurance in a way that a short match never will. Finally, I think a Nationals event should be a big deal. Bigger than other matches, grander than other matches. It's the culmination of the shooting year; it should be expected to require a bigger time + money investment.

  6. *Rolls eyes* Thanks for your contribution. No one would have ever known what we were discussing, otherwise. Sent from my ONEPLUS A6003 using Tapatalk

  8. The stages were good. There was one stage that only had one RO who ran the timer, causing the squad to have to run the pad. IMO, that's unacceptable at a L2 match due to competitive equity issues. Active competitors should not have a role in scoring other active competitors (again, IMO). Not a huge deal, just a concern. Overall, a quality match.
  9. $25 in springs and the 3.5# connector of your choice.
  10. Comical or infuriating? I can't even tell any more. The distinction he draws between "grip" and "frame" on production guns is absurd.
  11. IMO few people should have to go to .357 or .358 diameter bullets to eliminate leading and find acceptable accuracy with a mainstream gun manufacturer's 9mm barrel. The vast majority of guys loading 9mm for practical shooting with coated bullets are doing so with .355 or .356 diameter from the well known manufacturers with none of these issues. I am just very skeptical that increasing diameter over standard specs is treating the root cause instead of the symptoms. I find it far more likely that the problem lies with the bullet alloy/hardness/coating application/etc. for those instances where you guys are encountering these problems.

  12. Since this thread was started, BBI has cut prices across their product line. With a team member's code for 7.5% additional off, they are priced very attractively. Sent from my ONEPLUS A6003 using Tapatalk
  13. Minor scoring AND a compact gun is less than ideal, but part of the allure of USPSA is you get to play the game your way. I will also add that production is a great place to shoot a 9mm duty/carry type gun. If you're dead set on shooting limited, I'd encourage you to get something you enjoy to shoot in 40 Cal sooner than later. Sent from my ONEPLUS A6003 using Tapatalk
  14. Welcome, from another Georgian.
