  1. Any budget? Many seem to be happy with Baer 1911s. Do you expect to ever mount something on a rail?
  2. Yep. USPSA forces you to use more elaborate props if the designer wants you to stay out of specific areas.
  3. You can do that under USPSA rules, too, if you want to. Just a different way to design a stage.
  4. The IPSC rule about stepping outside fault lines says: If a COF has a passageway visibly delineated by fault lines and/or a clearly demarcated shooting area, any competitor who takes a shortcut by stepping on the ground outside the passageway and/or shooting area will incur one procedural penalty for each shot fired after beginning the shortcut. There's also: Level I and Level II matches are not required to comply strictly with the freestyle requirements or round count limitations (see Section 1.2). ... So, I've been in a Level II, where there were pretty long sprints between 3 shooting areas, and the pathways (where you were not allowed to shoot) were not delineated by fault lines.
  5. How often do you see that happening? Then you just need to give the competitor a reshoot. ------------------------------- (My previous posts here are all about stages where the retreat is forced by stage design. Surprise movements are different matter altogether.)
  6. In IPSC Action Air (using airsoft guns) stop plates connected to the timer have been the usual thing.
  7. Using RN bullets should maximize feeding reliability. I've been using copper plated ones, since I got tired of the mess that lubed lead was making.
  8. When the competitor is going to retreat, he/she is not firing the last shots before it. I've RO'd only one stage where the competitors started downrange, retreated, and then moved downrange again. I'd start the competitor, and then start walking back while he/she was shooting the first targets. At another stage, the competitors moved downrange, retreated, moved to the side and moved downrange again. No need to go near the competitor just before the retreat. No trouble getting the last shots of PCC either.
  9. To hit the target, you need to see it and aim. So, generally - whatever else you do - you should aim with the better eye. If that turns out to be impossible, some resort to using tape on the glasses to make the good eye see worse. With handguns, shooting cross dominant is feasible (one side hand, other side eye). With long guns, you aim on the strong hand side anyway.
  10. It is just another set of skills - both for competitor and RO. There's videos around where the RO was asleep and ended up between competitor and targets, or failed to stay out of the way of the retreating competitor.
  11. I've only ever had one in my hands. I didn't like the grip panels that came stock with it. A magwell should help. Proper magwell installation might require smoothing the transition from magwell to grip area. Can you press the mag release easily? A trigger job - or new parts and trigger job - can surely improve things.
  12. Want to go to the European IPSC Handgun Championships? Just insert your name in: https://www.ipscmatches.org/2019ehc/files/2019/08/Invitation-Letter_Blank.pdf
