  1. No. This is only a distraction. Don't take your eye off the ball. Sent from my ONEPLUS A6003 using Tapatalk
  2. Why would such a strategy be good for classifier matches and not regular matches? (It's not, I'm just humoring your hypothetical.) What you need to understand is how big an advantage major scoring is in a game that uses hit factor scoring. Major is a huge advantage in every instance. Sent from my ONEPLUS A6003 using Tapatalk
  3. How? Sent from my ONEPLUS A6003 using Tapatalk
  4. The new channel is about introducing the concepts of practical shooting to people who are not participating in practical shooting sports. Sent from my ONEPLUS A6003 using Tapatalk
  5. These are certainly... opinions. When you have me agreeing with Moto then something is dreadfully wrong. Sent from my ONEPLUS A6003 using Tapatalk
  6. Our stage design rules really hinder us as it relates to short field courses. I'd love to see us adopt ipsc stage design rules. But not 3-2-1 rule. Because a 6-12 round field course with lots of movement/several positions can be far more interesting than a 32 rounder. I'd love a provision that says the WSB on individual stages can mandate remaining inside the fault lines. More over the top swingers. Tougher movers. Move movers in general. Fewer stars and circus props. More distance in general. Less hosing. More ipsc targets. More running/athleticism challenges. Tunnels, ladders, platforms, towers, etc. Basically I would love to combine the best parts of ipsc with the best parts of USPSA. Our course design has grown very vanilla, and frankly, a bit stale. There are only so many times and so many configurations you can arrange such that everyone runs to X, Y, and Z positions, standing upright the whole time, on one plane. We need a new (old?) standard that isn't afraid to acknowledge that everyone is not going to be able to address this challenge, or series of challenges, and be okay with that. The sport should be taxing and challenging in ways that may make you uncomfortable from time to time.
  7. It's tacky to play IF-SC out loud and in public. Sent from my ONEPLUS A6003 using Tapatalk
  8. There are reputational consequences to forcing GM, from my observations. People generally know who's legit and who's not, despite which letters follow their name in Practiscore. Sent from my ONEPLUS A6003 using Tapatalk
  9. I ran into the same (or similar) issue as Hwansik mentioned above. Because the alpha dropper is a more gradual taper instead of a abrupt step, it is really easy to over expand the case mouth without knowing it. The problem seems to come when you place the bullet in the case prior to seating. If it is not perfectly concentric, there is less travel when seating occurs to straighten out the bullet concentrically. So if you adjust bell to where cases just barely accepts the bullet, the case walls are able to straighten up the bullet as it is seated. That's my theory, anyway.

  10. Not unless you're Eric Grauffel. And there's only one EG. Sent from my ONEPLUS A6003 using Tapatalk
  11. All Glocks can shoot coated lead. If the bullet is quality then you won't experience leading. Sent from my ONEPLUS A6003 using Tapatalk
  12. If the load works, it will work no matter which press produces it. Sent from my ONEPLUS A6003 using Tapatalk
  13. This. Sent from my ONEPLUS A6003 using Tapatalk
  14. Do, or do not. There is no try. Sent from my ONEPLUS A6003 using Tapatalk
  15. Truth Sent from my ONEPLUS A6003 using Tapatalk
  16. I keep getting notifications but see no new posts. Sent from my ONEPLUS A6003 using Tapatalk
  17. I suppose fun is in the eye of the beholder. Squirting bullets has never really been that interesting or challenging in my opinion. If I wanted to be sloppy, I'd shoot 3gun. Sent from my ONEPLUS A6003 using Tapatalk
  18. Minor scoring on target makes the game far more interesting than major scoring. C zone is far too large relative to total target area to score 4 points per hit. Sent from my ONEPLUS A6003 using Tapatalk
  19. I clean the crown periodically with a dental pick and a pure copper scrub pad.
  20. Are you trying to say consciously? Sent from my ONEPLUS A6003 using Tapatalk
  21. 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
  22. 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.
