  2. What about it “screams range bag” I have a tool bag that looks strikingly similar...and my computer bag from work looks more like a range bag than the DAA backpack. Someone would have to be hanging hang out with some very high end hoodlums for them think they would know that the DAA backpack is a range bag and think it “screams range bag”. Lol...BTW I fly with mine all the time for work and nobody looks at me weird and TSA never says a word...nor do I get scrutinized like I am screaming “I have a range bag at the airport”. So I would use that as a solid test that this DAA backpack is a solid range bag that does not look like a range bag....but we can always let the OP decide what he thinks of my suggestion I suppose.
  3. I imagine this will be a non-mandatory participation outdoor style match.....people in the high-risk, high-concern, and high-oppressive categories should consider their own wellbeing when choosing to register for any match. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. I think these bags by Double Alpha Academy are AWESOME. They are purpose build to be range backpacks and they even have a cart for them if you want one. I have the large one and the medium one. I prefer the large one because it holds more and things fit better in it. They deem to be a little pricey but they are EXTREMELY well made. DAA also has a bunch of other types and styles to chose from and all of top quality and durability. https://www.doublealpha.biz/us/ced-daa-rangepack-ipsc-backpack Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I am surprised [mention=42094]kneelingatlas[/mention] has not chimed in on this...I would bet good money he will be able to help you out with your answers. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. ^^^that is an OUTSTANDING idea!!!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  8. I really wonder if sometimes people don’t think it is part of a match to clean up afterwards. People don’t clean up after they pay for their meal at a restaurant so they think they don’t have to help clean up after they pay for a match....I remember when I first started 10+ years ago I would just pack up and go home. I felt bad for the 5 people that stayed to clean up so started to stay to help...and wondered why they started comping my next match fees. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Smart move getting the narrow belt...it is much easier to find options with a narrow belt than for the wider 1.75”. I bought an expensive wide belt a long time ago and made it work for a long time...but I switched when got tired of finding things to work with it. I shot 3-gun and USPSA, sometimes in the same weekend, so I needed easy reconfiguration. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. At the shooters meeting the MD should say “Shooting is optional, resetting is not. If you are not resetting you will be given one warning, the second time you will be asked to leave”....if the person leave and gets so butthurt that they don’t come back, so be it. They are hurting the majority by being lazy....I don’t care what class you are in. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. I will second this...I always thought that it would have been AWESOME to have a paid caddy/resetter when I was shooting 3-gun. During a 3 day match, not having to reset would have paid dividends when the scores came out. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. How do you push the spring up from the hole in the bottom to remove the base pad if you remove it? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Is it cheap to compete like it is with USPSA? [emoji23] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. People that are there to just have fun want something off the prize table. People that are there to win don’t care about a prize table...but don’t want to give it away if it is there. Hence...do away with prize tables so match directors can focus their attention on producing a good match instead of wasting time kissing the south end of some sponsors. I think a lot of the shooting sports has been tainted by prize table as bait to get unmotivated shooters involved into shooting sport. The essence of competative shooting sport would be much more pure without a prize table...but I know I am just dreaming as the prize tables will never go away. But I can dream can’t I! I would be WAY more motivated to attend a match that had no prize table but did have paid resetters and free beer during the awards ceremony. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Isopropyl alcohol (ribbing alcohol) is a great degreaser for metallic parts. It will clean down to the pores of the metal...but be sure to oil your parts right afterwards or they will rust in short order. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
