    2x4 protectors??

    Some are using stands and plate holders that present the 2inch side of a 2x4 to the shooter... does cut down on the hits on wood...

    New Rules

    Please take no offense ZZT... but if you can not break the 2nd shot... move and break the 3rd shot in less than 3 Seconds ….then you have work to do on this stage …. most shooters in a CF class would be hard pressed to shoot the stage from the center box in less than 3.5 and add 9 seconds of penalty you end up with 19.5 for your time This "might" help a D,C, and a mid to low level B but if they are gaming it … they will never improve over a mid B until they learn to move. Even though I gain on most of my competitors on this stage and should want it to remain a movement stage I would rather see it with no movement and end once and for all this discussion ….. 4 seconds was adopted to stop anyone from gaming the stage BUT it is a real punitive penalty for someone who can not move at all.... It is a shame in a shooting sport where a mobility handicaped shooter can fairly and evenly compete...…. till we get to this stage.... then we punish them because we are worried that someone will game the system.

    Well it looks like they pretty well screwed the elderly and handicaped…. 4 sec penalty for OL made it into the rule book foe 2019 so much for progressive thinking

    Rimfire rifle "compensators"

    FYI Actually on page 68 0f the May 2018 printed rules copy for Steel Challenge..... the appendix for rimfire rifle and pistol notes that comps are allowed in iron and optic classes and in the case of rifle I highly recommend them or a side port muzzle brake model such as Allchin... especially if you shoot a standard velocity ammo... BTW the longer the barrel the greater the need for them to deflect some sound back to the timer one of the stages where times are missed the most is Speed Option for right handed shooters and 5 to go for lefties

    T/C R22 Rifle

    Well first impression of the loader is very good.... I still can load faster with just my hands but I don't have the problems she has.... Right now I am giving it 5 stars... If anything changes after some use I will chime back in. I made a video but it is too large.... anybody know how to make it 1.95 MB in size?

    T/C R22 Rifle

    I guess I will be a beta tester ( or my wife will be ) she has hand strength problems since having wrist surgery …. so it is a need will report after using it for awhile.

    In the ear electronic plugs

    Thank you they do look interesting....

    In the ear electronic plugs

    Looking for input/ recommendations on IN the ear electronic plugs ( not MUFFS ) There are several out there but the hard part is finding a pair that clips the gun shot AND recovers fast enough to pick up the clang of a steel plate.... they all pretty much pick up the voice commands etc. Experiences?

    Rimfire Rifle Build

    Trust me it don't slow me down... that finger position depends on how big the transition... in this case it was almost 160 degrees so the finger came off the trigger as it does when I have to move... on Steel Challenge it never leaves the face of the trigger and I have NO problems with AD's as I said before YMMV a 8oz break suits my shooting style just fine.

    Rimfire Rifle Build

    Here is part of a vid from a Action Steel match....if you look right at the end of the vid where I go to transition from a array of targets to the right all the way to the left ( even though I am not moving feet wise ) you can see my trigger finger go up the side of the gun as I pivot before I again start shooting. finger control.mp4
  13. Yep just don't miss LOL and pertime if I need more than 6 it is a bad string. and yes I have had some bad strings in the past and I am sure there will be more... Hey Zack looks like I am going to shoot with you guys again on the 23rd

    Rimfire Rifle Build

    Not sure why you guys feel that way... I use a Kidd 2 stage set at 8oz 1st stage and 8oz 2nd ( break ) It is just a matter of finger control I have once or twice when I first started using the Kidd have had a premature discharge... but it was no harm no foul.... BTW if you think a AD is a automatic DQ you are wrong.... as long as the round does not strike within 10 feet or worse goes over the berm... it is just another 6 cent miss … my wife's RFRO has a 2lb and it feels like it will never break quick enough when I am transitioning between plates... I think I am literally slapping the trigger as the dot crosses a plate and because it breaks so easy there is no jerk or pull off... again it is what you get used to and yes you must have good finger discipline … which you should have even with a seven pound trigger... YMMV

    Classifier system question

    It is also very common to have a good stage time every now and then and end up ranked at a level you will never shoot a match at. My example I am a B in RFPO my times are pretty much over a years worth of matches... but I am never able to put it all together and shoot all 8 stages at a time better or say within a tenth or two of my best times which has me ending up shooting as a good C and never being completive in the B class.... YET
