  1. A 230 grain bullet tends to put'em down - if I hit'em. A heavier bullet in a non-compensated pistol tends to feel softer. That might or might not make it easier to score with. With Open pistols things are different.

    CZ TS 2

    That reminds me. There's something about CZ safety levers that prevents me from getting the safety on, with the shooting hand thumb. Last I tried was a regualar TS with a wide lever. It was not a matter of strength: purely the angles of how the lever pivots.
  3. There can be a fine line between strong grip and locked wrists, and being tense. If parts of your body are tense, that can lead to jumpy and inconsistent movement of the pistol. ... just a thought. Perhaps worth contemplating?

    CZ TS 2

    Lots of Europeans are using .40 for Major. No particular legal issues with the caliber (as long as you can get a handgun permit.... ) It just looks like many like 9mm even in IPSC Divisions where Major is possible. And people play other pistol games too, where Major does not exist.
  5. Ice Hockey and Basketball have different equipment rules too???
  6. People who read the rules do find out why. USPSA Rules APPENDIX D7 – Carry Optics Division ... Special conditions: 1. Only Double Action, Double Action/Single Action, and Safe Action/Striker Fired handguns are allowed, and must be on the approved list The List: https://uspsa.org/productionlist -------- Also, IPSC Rules, for the rest of the world: APPENDIX D4a: Production Optics Division .... Special conditions: 14. Only handguns listed as approved in the Production Division List on the IPSC we
  7. Action Air, shot with airsoft pistols, is a Discipline of its own in IPSC. Obviously, the recoil isn't the same as with a center fire pistol. But all the other stuff is there. Stages are just usually with short distances and reduced size targets. You get breaking down the stage, target transitions, reloads, movement. All the things that really determine your time. And you know where your hits (if any) are on the targets. The Asian guys who are currently winning everything are seriously fast.
  8. Labor cost might, or might not, be relevant. For an annual Level 2 IPSC Match by a club in my corner of Europe, the crew does not get paid, except for shooting for free, a lunch, and a roof over your head for the night if needed. The people who pay to shoot are willing to pay a little more, when there's a crew running the stages.
  9. At our Local IPSC Level 2, the Pre Match with staff shooting and running the stages by ourselves gets 50 or 60 shooters "processed" in about the same time that it takes on Main Match day to do 80 or 90, with shooters shooting and staff running the stages. We don't run when scoring and pasting, though.
  10. Nice... My old Ernie Hill looks modern, compared with those.
  11. Recoil control would be the main benefit. Right? With rimfirem that wouldn't be much of a benefit. Pushing the pistol to the side with the finger is the biggest risk. I also shoot revolver, and don't want to learn anything that might trick me into putting my finger out there with a wheelgun.
  12. There's got to be something wrong with my English. I totally agree with you that competitors can paste, as long as the shooter who is being scored doesn't touch (or approach too close) before the targets are scored. --------- Generally, when we have a crew for a stage, we move in fast enough that the shooter doesn't have the time to get near the targets before they are scored. The main exception is when there's something that we want the shooter to see. "Shooter! I only see one hole in this target. Wanna see for yourself?"
  13. I'm not saying that there is a difference. Just responding to the claim that no person who is a competitor can touch an IPSC target. Competitors can do resetting in an IPSC Match.
  14. For my corner of northern Europe, everybody will be pasting at small Level 1 club matches. Level 2 and up, there''s a crew doing it. The crew is locals and other volunteers. Usually, the crew shoots on Saturday (for Level 2), with each squad doing their own ROing and resetting. Crew don't pay to shoot, and they get a lunch, and a roof over their heads if needed. Then they do all the work on Sunday's Main Match. I haven't seen lots of big egos at the matches that I've gone to. The Crew do their best to run a stage in an efficient, fair and friendly way. The paying shoote
