  1. Not a DQ. But as per 5.2.2, handgun in holster must be de-cocked. If you say “Stop” and escort shooter to safety table to observe corrective action, also as per 5.2.2, I bet it won’t happen again. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. I bought a 6” 610. I’ve wanted a 10mm pistol for deer hunting for a while, but couldn’t justify the high cost of an auto. I broke my leg this fall and thought shooting Revo would be entertaining while I recovered. Add those together, and the 610 was justified (at least in my mind). What I’ve learned: 1. Revo is fun!! 2. Revo major is a severe handicap. Standing reloads are unavoidable. If you want to be competitive, minor with 8 rounds is the way to go. 3. Gunbroker and bourbon do not mix. I got an unbelievably great deal on a 4” 610 when my low ball bid actually won. So now I have 2 610s. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. That would be an interesting stage, but challenging to score. Plus VC is only allowed on Standards, Classifiers, Speed Shoots, or Short Courses. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. From the glossary in the rule book: Should Optional but highly recommended. I think the biggest complaint competitors might lodge with this is won't be fair and consistent for everyone, unless non-shooters are resetting the stage until enough shooters from the squad have gone through and then can reset. Someone is going to have an unfair advantage if they reset before shooting
  5. I’ll quote you, cuz you’re correct. 21.4 and 21.6 specifically say grips, triggers, sights, and mag release can be replaced. 22.4 says no magwell. WC’s mag guide counts as a magwell, even though its benefits are marginal. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Being your first match, don’t over think the stage plan. Focus more on understanding the procedures and being safe. Practice reloads on the move, and movement in all directions, while keeping the muzzle down range and your finger off the trigger. You can do this at home as part of your dry fire practice. That said, there are a few basic principles to break down a stage. First, consider magazine capacity and create a plan that avoids standing reloads. If faced with a difficult array, allow for make ups without going dry. If you are right handed, try to plan so you are moving left to right when changing mags. Try to avoid having to go backwards. But practice this to be safe, cuz designers will build these into a stage. But most of all have fun, watch how others run a stage, ask questions, and help with stage resets.

  7. This was talked about briefly at the RO certification class I took last weekend, taught by an NROI instructor. From what I remember, "general shape" was interpreted as the same shape, but without the need for a non-shooting border, since steel has a pretty well-defined edge to it already
  8. Extra hits (i.e. hits on the scoring area of scoring cardboard targets in excess of the total number specified in the stage), will each incur one procedural penalty. Note that hits on hard cover and/or no-shoots are not treated as Extra Hits. So, first scenario would be 6 Alphas (+30), extra shot (-10), and no-shoot (-10). PractiScore doesn't have a column for procedurals . Even more confusingly, the score column is the sum of all hits. Mikes, No-shoots, and procedurals are deducted before Hit Factor is calculated, but not reflected in the points column. Divide that shooter's score in the points column for that stage by his/her time. If that is higher than the reported HF, the shooter was in fact assessed a procedural.
  9. Isn’t there something about disallowing the competitor from resetting the stage prior to shooting? Opening and closing a port would be a reset, and could be advantageous, especially with a sticky/resistant mechanism. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Overall a very good experience. I ordered the parts on a Saturday, had shipping confirmation the next Monday. International shipping took 4 weeks. Shadow 2 safety went right in and I couldn’t be happier with how much easier it is to use compared to stock. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
