  1. AFH, I was sure I responded to this but was sifting through posts for one and saw the topic I'd started and decided I'd check the replies. Very sorry for the ball drop but thank you very much for the advice! My plan this year is to go to a 2-day event; first day is a regular 5-6 stage match (all we can handle atm) and I will then also use the finishes in day 1 to dictate placement on the board for day 2 shoot-off. I am going to run registration with required payment this year. We're caught in the middle of uncertain range development so I don't want to start registration too early so I have a few months until frost comes off and we can brake ground to wrap up the berm work. Any other ideas folks have is much appreciated. Next battle is of course to find the vendors willing to support us again this year. Support has been phenominal the past 2 season but it takes a lot of calls, emails and conversation.
  2. This is my second season running a shoot-off style event where we run a double elimination blind draw bracket. The biggest problem I have is with the match no-shows throwing us off and it has left me with a few questions. Do you create a bracket before the day of the match? If so, do you do anything to mitigate issues from no-shows? If you create the bracket the day of the match, do you have any special strategy for laying one out quickly? Any other best practices for how you run your brackets during the match? I am looking for suggestions specific to the actual bracket. I plan to start requiring pre-payment to help with this issue. Thanks all!
  3. Thanks for all the ideas folks! I'll look into a mirror. Early in the year there was binding in the linkage. I was able to catch most of the bad loads from that because I do have a good bright light (specifically the Hornady branded one). I had it apart and cleaned it while I was resolving the linkage problem. I do have the powder baffle installed.
  4. I've been having trouble with the ammo coming out of my Hornady LNL this summer where every couple hundred rounds (maybe less) I get a dud with no powder. After it happened yesterday someone came over to me and said their LNL powder drop is sticking on the first few rounds so each time they start loading they have to either check or dump the first few. Has anyone else experienced this and, outside of the obvious powder check die, found a solution? My few quick searches on this on here and general internet didn't find a hit on this situation.
  5. Good to know, I'll take a look! thanks!!
  6. That is the exact gun I've bought and am impatiently waiting for it to arrive! Good to know about the load and the setup, thank you! If you don't mind me asking, what kind of trigger does she have in it?
  7. Cool, thanks again for the ideas everyone! It's really interesting that no one is using the same powder!
  8. Thanks! These are all typically just on the weekends I'm not fishing so I definitely have enough to keep me busy
  9. Thanks guys. I am afraid I will end up like s2000red... been coming here for years and find plenty to read but never felt like I had anything to contribute on what I was reading.
  10. Thank you! I'm sure someone told me something along those lines 20+ years ago but with the long break away from the sport (roughly 18 years) it is nice to have it spelled on in such a concise manor to remind me!
  11. Well, I don't like to go to the extreme so I guess I wouldn't say 0 posts. We're getting way off topic but to me, a 50 post requirement says you only want your most active members to have access to classifieds. However, to then also have an active "this is where I'm at for funding this site" ticker running at the top with messaging telling us there aren't enough funds to support the effort tells me maybe you might want more people selling things on here that would help contribute to that pot. Just my 2 cents... I like this site and there are a lot of good and helpful people on here but when I realized I couldn't even think about posting an item for sale because the past 2 years of reading everyone else's discussions and buying from other members meant I wasn't an active enough member to turn around and sell something it rubbed me the wrong way. Especially when as soon as I try to participate I get called out for posting on a subject that's been discussed.
  12. Thanks! As you said, it's a bit restrictive to keep the movement only lateral but there aren't a lot of other options w/o greatly slowing down the match.
  13. Ha! I shoot minor for 3-gun and Steel Challenge and bump it up to major for USPSA. And I have really been sucking it up trying to shoot open sights and a striker fired gun all for the first time. I'm really hoping moving back to the 1911 style platform helps quite a bit. I don't really want to jump in to the Unlimited/Open group in 3-gun!
  14. Right, hitting the targets does help You see mr Hombre, that is where I find it ridiculous to have a 50 post minimum before I can post on the classifieds. There's tons of posts on every friggen topic I can think of. I can read all I want... but apparently I need to make up posts to be considered an active member... so, I've started asking questions on things I'm thinking about so they'll consider me active. I don't know what else to do!
