  1. Ok. Were they visible from other than the port even if not the best plan? do you have a link to the match book?
  2. So my question for the OP would be: could you shoot those targets from a different position? Or were they only available from that one spot?
  3. I'll jump in on this one as I think gamers are not cheaters and cheaters are just that, cheaters. Gamers "game" the rules but work within then as the edges, trying to eek out every advantage but stay legal. Truth. Remember folks, USPSA happens to be a Game.
  4. This is what I was thinking about since the whole person is not completely outside the shooting area. I thought it ended up saying if one foot is out, it is 1 procedural but both feet out is procedural per shot. And there is wording to the effect of “gained advantage” Yes, I agree both feet are touching. But the competitor is not “completely out” because of the contact with the ground by knees. Without seeing the stage, there would seem to be no gained advantage due to the fall.
  5. I’d have probably only given you 1 since your fall and the time it likely took to steady yourself and get the shots from your knees would have made a pretty good time add on. But, I wasn’t there. So....
  6. I’m running an aluminum topped LimCat V2 on my steel grip Atlas but I have a brass top V2 on my plastic grip STI. They actually feel pretty close in the hand and under live fire.
  7. Well said. Not really a big deal most of the time.
  8. No shooting side walls is true for at least one club match in GA. However, we design stages by using structure so that range wall shots are not generally going to happen. Or write it in the stage brief: ie, “these targets must be shot from this shooting area only”
  9. Thisbis exactly what I was thinking when I read the post about GMs thinking the dot was slower. when I switched from irons to dot it took me a bit to get used to it. If one was to just pick up a dot and try it out for a few practice sessions, I’d argue it would not be as fast as what the shooter was used to.
  10. If you had one CO gun with backup Irons that you started the match with, I would say you could continue without any approval from anyone. There is no prohibition of backup irons in CO. It is the “same firearm and type of sights” for the whole match whether you use irons or the dot. Now, if you had a slide with only irons and put that on your CO gun to finish, I would say you’d need approval and would probably get denied as there is no optic (working or not). However, in my opinion and generally speaking, you’d be at a significant disadvantage shooting irons against a field of dots.
  11. It does seem reasonable in SS with .40.
  12. Thanks for bringing it up. I think it’s an interesting question. I’ve always thought the minor/major conversation had interesting points with regard to advantages/disadvantages. Never really thought about it in SS but in LTD, since that is what I shoot. I own a couple of 2011s in .40 but I also own a few CZ Shadows for Production and CO. I’ve wondered how I’d fare shooting my production CZ with my CO mags in LTD minor. I have shot a few LTD classifiers w my production gun. In those instances, and on other short courses or standards, I don’t know that there is much of an advantage in shooting minor.
