  1. That's up to the match organizers. Contact them.
  2. Yeah ... I read that too. I'm still waiting for him to point out just where in the rules it says a cross-draw holster is prohibited. (Shoulder rigs, usually on the weak side, have been prohibited FOREVER ... for obvious reasons!) I do agree, a cross-draw setup is a HUGE invitation to breaking the 180 during the draw or holstering, but it CAN be done safely. As evidenced by the exception for holsters with an FBI cant, the 180 is neither the Alpha nor the Omega with respect to holster position. Were I to actually see a shooter come to the line with his holster in a cross-draw pos
  3. Not necessarily THE specific model revolver I was thinking of, but here's an image of the type grip I had in mind:
  4. Good point. For a more obvious example, examine the "heel of the butt" as it would appear on a S&W Revolver with a round-butt type grip. That can be rounded all the way down the back to below the bottom of the butt.
  5. The ONLY reference to Cross Draw in the rules is in the glossary: There is no reference, which I can find, declaring use of such holster as prohibited. However, as others have stated, you are at serious risk of the 180 when you holster or draw. CAN it be done safely? Certainly ... But it's frequently a time-waster and has fallen out of favor for that reason. The only person I remember using it routinely was Walker ... But that's Hollywood.
  6. This is also why I am starting to see a trend, more and more, to intentionally NOT line up the scoring perfs on top of each other. It's much easier to get consistent scoring when there is separation between those lines.
  7. I'm sorry, but I have to state you could not be more wrong. If you TRULY believe this then go shoot your 627 against other "C" class shooters in Open. (This assumes they are as competent in "C" Open as you are in "C" Revolver.) You will likely have your head handed to you in a basket. That said ... I 100% appreciate and support the concept of shooting what makes you happy. Select ANY gun you want, shoot it in ANY division for which it qualifies and HAVE FUN! I fear too many folks have lost sight of the "fun" aspect of our sport. FWIW, I seem to remember Jerry Micule
  8. Thanks Jodi ... I knew there was a picture SOMEWHERE, but I couldn't find it in the rulebook so I just quoted the rule.
  9. 5.2.7 Competitors must not be permitted to commence a course of fire wearing: A shoulder holster or “tie-down” rig (visible or otherwise), except as specified in Rule 5.2.8. A holster with the heel of the butt of the handgun below the top of the belt, except as indicated in Rule 5.2.8 for Law Enforcement/Military duty holsters, and approved by the RM. All handgun divisions must comply with this requirement. The "heel of the butt" of the handgun is the bottom portion of the backside of the grip, near the magwell opening. If in doubt, check
  10. There has been a comprehensive review of the major differences between IPSC and USPSA prepared and submitted for publication in Front Sight. It missed the cutoff for the March/April edition, but I suspect it should appear in the May/June issue. A follow-up article for PCC is in the works.
  11. OK ... I've got to ask: Has anyone ever actually seen this happen, or is this discussion purely academic?
  12. What was it Uncle Ronnie said? Oh yeah ... Trust, but verify!
  13. Yeah ... But 9 times out of 10 the WSB will require you to use the match-provided flashlight and nothing else. It sort of levels the playing field that way.
  14. Try one of these attached to your shirt or belt ... Orfos | Home
  15. I did some further searching on Google ... Apparently LaserLyte pretty much did something like that 5-10 years ago. Wasn't terribly reliable (based on reviews) and died out. See following example from Midway ... LaserLyte Rear Sight Red Laser Glock All Models Matte (midwayusa.com)
