  1. I think 7.1.1 is what establishes that only the RO can issue any penalty (including a DQ): ====== Range Officer(“RO”) –issues range commands, oversees competitor compliance with the written stage briefing and closely monitors safe competitor action. He also declares the time, scores, and penalties achieved by each competitor and verifies that these are correctly recorded on the competitor’s score sheet (under the authority of a Chief Range Officer and Range Master) ====== So, the shooter should have been given a reshoot due to the Peanut Gallery interference a
  2. Agreed, you are still “D” class so that’s how you have to register. In the meantime, you can look into why the “B” class score was dropped. It may be the automated rule that throws out any score significantly higher than your current class. If that is the case you can request that the USPSA team reconsider and use that score. It won’t help you for this upcoming Level II match, and it will likely take a few weeks to take effect, but I’ve seen them accept the higher score every time this comes up.

  3. They way I've learned to treat this, as the RO, if I KNEW that the shooter didn't engage the target when the shooter was finished then I would assign an FTSA. If I only questioned the fact when we were scoring targets, then the shooter gets the mikes, but no FTSA.
  4. After the match, the competitor submits a charge-back on their credit card to get a refund they don't deserve per the clear match refund policy, and this has a significant negative financial impact on the match. Does rule 6.4.4.a give the MD the ability to declare this competitor persona non grata at his matches going forwards? I would agree that this is a bit of a subjective call - however I would say No, that doesn’t meet the criteria to ban someone from future matches per the rules cited. At the end of the day, you have a simple issue of managing a refund dispute. If you had a clea
  5. I only see facts in his post, no hysteria. Furthermore, those 80% you reference will still be transmitting the virus to more people, likely before they even get symptoms themselves. That will cause more deaths and extended timelines for isolation. I agree that isolation is our most powerful tool right now.
  6. Well - most every state has a stay at home order in place, and the CDC has clearly requested that we don’t leave our homes if we don’t absolutely have to do so (like for a once weekly grocery run). So, you wouldn’t be following the requests and guidelines of our health officials and you would be risking the further spread of this virus. The fact remains that you can be asymptomatic and shedding the virus (contagious). We would all love to be out shooting matches but I wouldn’t host one nor attend one at this point in time.

  7. Yeah, agreed - I think the RO was mistaken. The safety is not required when the hammer is down.
  8. For me, it was simply a matter of fact that they worked well, so I stuck with them. The backstory.. I decided that I wanted 147 and ideally 147 RN bullets. That eliminated Blue Bullets for me, so then I tested Xtreme (and also Berry) and found that the Xtreme 147 RN and 124 RN worked well in my gun, but the Xtreme 124 FP did not. Since I wanted 147 RN, I started using Xtreme and even continued to use them for a while after they declared Chapter 11 early last year. However, their already marginal customer service fell even further and then I started finding 124 bullets intermixe
  9. As an MD, I see it from time to time. I have never seen a scenario where the shooter doesn’t eventually get the approval to include the Classifier. It can take 2+ weeks, but once you fill out the form it has been accepted in school case I’ve seen. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  12. I tested over a dozen different types of 9mm bullets with both of my Stock II’s when I started reloading early last year. I haven’t modified my barrel either. For me, I found that I started to have feed issues if my OAL goes below 1.09”. With that said, for Blue Bullet specifically I found that the 125 RN and 147 RN wouldn’t work well in my barrel (they work great in some of my other pistols). I also validated that I could use 125 TC, 135 TC and 147 FP in my Stock II. Eventually I moved to Everglades 147 RN and I use those exclusively now. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. The Tanfo Stock II Elite is a very popular production gun in USPSA. The (I think 8 time?) world champion runs with one. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. This makes the most sense to me as well. I emailed the scenario to the DNROI alias yesterday, understanding they are likely pretty focused on Nationals right now. I'll be sure to post a follow up as I hear back from them.
  15. We held a match today with classifier 18-07 (Someone Is Always Willing To Pay). The classifier is an 8 round, 40 point Comstock Speed Shoot. It has 3 cardboard and 2 popper targets. The Stage Procedure says: From within box engage T1-3 or P1-2 then perform a mandatory reload and engage remaining targets. One shooter started by landing 2 hits on 1 cardboard target, then took both the poppers. He then performed a reload and then took the remaining 2 cardboard targets to finish his run. He started with the cardboard but didn't finish them before movin
