    Atlas, Akai, or CK

    A really cool dude with a Titan and another guy shooting a Nemesis took 1st and 2nd respectively at the BIG Monthly USPSA Match two weeks ago out of 38 LTD shooters. Just saying.

    That’ll teach ‘em!

    DQ’d. AD into a wall during transition

    No, not a lot of people that I know of. There could be an argument that people may have shot through the non-port section of the wall and no one would be the wiser but that’s sort of another topic. My point with showing these pictures was that it is possible to have your ‘mind play tricks’ AND still be safe to shoot. I didn’t have a problem because during the walk through (with plenty of time) I was able to discern where the port was and assign a shooting position in my stage plan. However, in this particular stage with the wall material used, I think it would not indicate unsafe shooting if a shooter shot through the wall because he/she thought it was a port. I’m not a pro, but I’d consider myself a seasoned shooter and I have darned good vision. I didn’t have much problem with this stage but I could see how someone might shoot through a port that’s not a port in that wall. Especially if one were ‘on the clock’ as BoyGlock indicated happened during his run. If that happened, i wouldn’t consider it unsafe at all.

    DQ’d. AD into a wall during transition

    Here is a stage from last weekend. These mesh walls are pretty darned transparent. In the below images I cannot ‘easily’ tell which picture has the target visible in the port and which does not? I have to look pretty hard but I CAN easily see the targets and shoot safely.

    DQ’d. AD into a wall during transition

    This is sort of the gist of my whole argument. I think we all agree shooting a wall is is not automatically a DQ. We’ve all shot walls. More than likely we’ve shot walls within a few inches of a target/port. That doesn’t qualify as a DQ. That was my initial question. How far ‘into’ the wall (away from the edge/port) does it need to be? I did take the NROI RO class. I was told that transitioning to another shooting position was considered movement even though I didn’t move my feet. My my situation was slightly different because I broke the sight picture and was pulling the gun back toward my torso (similar to low ready). My question(s) is(are): What if I wasn’t? What if I was transitioning around a barrel? What about the ‘end’ of a wall (wall is perpendicular to 180 with targets on either side) that is only as wide as the 2x2 the mesh is staples to? Is that movement?

    DQ’d. AD into a wall during transition

    Correct. I agree that mine was an AD. The whole point of the conversation was to discuss shooting walls and when it is too close to call an AD.

    DQ’d. AD into a wall during transition

    That seems reasonable. Since you were engaging a target. With Some of the “almost clear” wall material used with multiple ports configurations that I’ve seen I can totally understand your mind playing tricks.

    Not arguing the source. However wouldn’t that make walls irrelevant given the stage direction to “shoot targets as they become visible”? If you can see them through walls ‘per the rules’ and you are directed to engage when they are visible I would argue mesh walls wouldn’t matter or all walls would have to be opaque.
  9. I can see that. Good points all.
  10. Interesting. Did you have much experience with a carbine before? Military/LE? I really had no practice at all with my PCC (nor a dot for that matter) when I did my classifiers. Could just be that I really suck with a carbine. LOL
  11. Yep. While I don’t have any Revolver data, my handgun classification percentages are as follows: PROD Pre-update 83.9% (current calculation would net 81.03%) - While I was scratching at an M before the update, I’m still a solid A LTD 74.8% (69.2%) - Solid B CO 65.1% (66.1%) - Low B However, My PCC percentages are 60.3% (58.6%) placing me solidly in a high C under the new update. I’d venture to predict my Revolver percentages would more closely mirror my PCC scores.
  12. I really don’t understand why HHF is secret if its so easy to do the math. If the org did publish the HHFs, that doesn’t mean they would have do disclose how they came up with them. Kinda like draping a curtain over a house and saying we can’t tell you there’s a house under there.
  13. This seems to make sense to me since (to my knowledge) CO[minor] was using the same scores as Open [major?].
  14. Yep, my % dropped by 10 on that one.
  15. I’d also argue that the automatic ‘charity’ classification should not be just one class below in revolver division as well. I think Just because you classify as an M in an autoloading pistol division that you should not atomatically classify as an A in Revolver (unless your classifier scores justify an A). I think you should auto classify two levels lower in both Revolver and PCC.
