  1. I did not know that but it appears that you are correct.
  2. Was looking at the 34 as my pet load for my 1911 is a 125 blue that out of my work 17 only makes 127 PF but out of my 5" 1911 Im at 132 PF Edit to add I was mostly looking at the slides because I was think a match gun and practice backup and did not want to buy 4 glocks. Plus only two a year blue label. But maybe one MOS and one stock for this year and next.
  3. I would be fine buy a mos 34 and will look at zev. I did not see one when I looked but I could have just missed it. After looking they do have a 17 gen 5 but dont see a 34. but is 299 for a barre slide by the time you add all the parts I could just buy a full gun.
  4. I have been a long time Single Stack shooter and really like my 1911 but I started SS because my work gun was not uspsa friendly (sig 226). We have now switched to gen 5 glock 17s. I am thinking of picking two 34s off the blue label program and shoot prod. I would also like to play in CO dose anyone know if you can buy a OEM or other gen 5 slide so I can just swap slides.
  5. At my local club I am the RM/practiscore guy/registration guy/embedded RO/stage designer/sometimes MD/classifier picker. Shooting time is 9 or when all stages are set up whatever is later and we do have a few people that show up to walk stages as they are being built, we dont have many. The ones we do have get looks from the guys who are working. I as RM I dont give out stage plans I am lucky to have guys who bring stages and set them up I do try to walk them for safety and rules and as long as they are ok I dont mess with them. I also no longer stress about getting started on time as my set up crew knows who helps and who dose not. I have also become less accommodating to last minuets requests by the non helpers and people that show up at the last second before registration close. This year I have also slowed way down on building my own stages because I just dont have time to build good ones unless I show up before 6AM. PLEASE HELP SETUP if you are on the range. This sport only works if everyone helps both during the match and before. If you are over loaded during the match hand off the pad. I go into many stages with nothing more than the 5 minuet walk thru because before the match all I have time for is a safety walk thru. Yes it sucks so I understand where OP is coming from but that is also why I have backed off on building my own stages.
  6. 1K in ammo and range time will put your further ahead then any new gun if you want to get better. If you just want a new gun Id save a bit more.
  7. This is what I would do. if the match fee was 25. I would make him pay 25 he owes plus 25 for his next match or he dose not get to shoot.
  8. If the parking lot is considered part of the range it is fully within the scope of the rules. Dont be so sure you are before or after the match. The match times are on practiscore and for example our local Starts at 7AM and dose not end until 5PM. We do this so we have the range until we are done. Or at a major match that runs for multiple days the match dose not end untill the last day of the match. Having said that we dont "police" the parking lot but that dose not mean it it not part of the range. 2.5.1 leads me to believe that any area after a unloading station would be part of the match and the full range if no unloading station is provided. The only exception might be if the range is broken up like a few ranges I can think of that have clearly defined areas of the range. My home range would be a good example of that. We have one parking lot for the front of the range with the square ranges and the back of the range with a separate parking lot for the USPSA bays.
  9. We run one intro class per year and this is our outline. We set it up so a new shooter can get thru in 50 rounds. and about 2 -3 hours USPSA FUNDAMENTALS CURICULUM (1).pdf
  10. True but the MD can chose what divisions will be allowed in the match. So yes you could run matches under that rule.
  11. As a dedicated SS shooter 9mm for almost everything. Ill bring out the 45 every now and then for something like a supper classifier or a match I know will have very little steel. Also it helps a lot to know what the stage builder shoots (area 3 build is by two open shooters) 9MM all the way.
  12. Not all of us we have had a match the last two weekends. Both went well.
  13. Sounds like two days is the best way. Im open to other thoughts if anyone has them but this is the very early stages yet Thanks for the info.
  14. Iv never really thought about liability at a local as we are covered by the range plan. Just thought it might be a thing with people moving between ranges. We will see what happens.
