  1. I'm all for having plenty of movement/physical challenges in a stage. We've put on a more IPSC style match as our last match of the year the last 2 years. More movement between positions, low ports, prone, etc. We advertised it ahead of time to get ahead of the older crowds complaining. Just adding pointless running to the beginning of a stage doesn't accomplish anything. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
  2. Let's just require everyone to run a 5k before we start! Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
  3. This. It in no way enhances a stage. All it does is artificially drive down the hit factor and add unnecessary time to the match as a whole. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
  4. Have you shot a Shadow 2 without anything done? Or maybe one with just springs swapped? Might be worth doing so you have some sort of baseline before jumping into a bunch of upgrades that might not really benefit you. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
  5. I broke 2 CZC adjustable rears on my Accushadows. Eventually went with a fixed rear. The factory adjustable on my Shadow 2s have been solid though. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
  6. A friend of mine used to take 2 sets of 40 Cal ammo to majors for SS. 1 for major and 1 for minor. He'd make a decision after walking the stages. I think he mostly leans minor these days when he's not shooting Limited. It really all comes down to how the stages are laid out. Major has advantage with a lot of partials. Personally I think that's the most interesting thing about Single Stack as a division is it's really the only one where there is parity between major/minor and you have to balance an interesting trade off.

  7. Yeah I fixed it almost immediately after I posted. I was like wait that doesn't make sense. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
  8. Options are an adjustable rear sight, a taller front sight, or different ammo. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
  9. I 100% support doing away with class recognition at matches. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
  10. Pulling out every single class in every single division into it's own separate match would dilute everything down. To the point that the 1 GM or M who came out that day beating out say 50 other people, but b/c everyone is in there own match he can't be recognized because there isn't actually an overall division anymore. The divisions are the individual matches. It doesn't get broken down any further for scoring. The culture in the US is to go down the overall list and recognize class/categories (and the rulebook basically has guidelines for how to do that if the match chooses to). These are basically participation trophies that IPSC doesn't bother with. Personally I think we do it as a way to appease the masses. People like being told they've "won" something. Most people who shoot uspsa will probably never win a match and recognizing classes is a way to keep them paying dues and coming to big matches. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
  11. I don't think the 2 things have to be intrinsically linked. You can have a classification system so that people not competing at lvl 2 and 3 matches have some sort of metric to track progess and also give some sort of an idea of the skill of shooters that you don't regularly compete against. Then on actual match day only those match results matter. It doesn't matter what letter is next to your name only how well you shoot vs everyone else in your division.

  12. Nowhere in the rules does it state you're just competing against other B class shooters. The rules only dictate that each division be scored separately and independently and that a winner for each be recognized. 6.2.1 Matches aren't required to recognize "class wins" Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
  13. The scoring advantage of major pf in USPSA is significant. You'll always be at a disadvantage shooting minor all other things being equal. If you are there just there to have fun then it's a moot point, but if you actually want to compete even at a club level you'll likely need a 40cal gun. A Glock 35 is plenty competitive as a gun for Limited so if you're basically getting a free one that's not a bad plan. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
  14. I kept using the 11lb recoil springs from my Production Shadow 2s in my CO cut one. I didn't notice much of a difference. Mine was cut by CZC. Not sure if the way different companies remove material from different places affects it any. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
  15. I would never allow this in any official uspsa match. If you want to run blind stages setup an outlaw match or IDPA. My biggest issue is that of competitive equity and there is none if the people who set up the stage are shooting it against people who were barred from seeing it beforehand.
