  1. That is so true... much too often, grown ass men act like kids... Completely agree with you there.
  2. That's probably the best way to get to know someone... but not everybody has the opportunity to meet their elected officials in person at a match, unfortunately... I think it would be great if one of the well known podcast/content creators could organize a live feed. Collect questions from membership in advance, ask those, then open the floor to live Q&A. Doesnt get much easier or better than that in this day and age.
  3. I am not sure voicing an opinion on a candidate's policy in a constructive and respectful manner should be seen as "politics". For example, if you tell me i should vote for Candidate X because you feel he will revamp the classifier system that you feel is broken or that he will introduce member benefits that you feel are needed... and i then disagree with you by saying i dont think the system is broken and here is why .... and perhaps ask a few constructive questions about what specific member benefits we're talking about and how they will affect the price of membership and my general experience... Is that politics? Or is that a constructive discussion of candidate's policy that will lead to transparency and better understanding for the general membership?
  4. Agreed. The more i shoot, the more i realize how well it works overall for the vast majority of USPSA participants. I've read some of the candidates' agendas and thought they were ... somewhat irrelevant. ------------- A few questions to the open thread 1. Where could i find list of all candidates, for Area 8 and El Prez specifically? 2. Similar to what Foley did on Stoeger's and i think was it Levy's podcast? - are there any live chats and Q&A sessions planned by anyone? 3. In your opinion, without getting too political, who is YOUR preferred candidate and maybe why? I am going to send an email to Heather @ USPSA on ##1 and 2, but maybe someone here can answer? The third one... I dont mean to start any flame wars or get poltical. I would like to know WHY i should consider voting for one vs another and want to hear substantiated opinions. Thanks in advance
  5. My slot email included my code and a link to main page of Practiscore: I dont see the registration page link anywhere in the email... it's not here either: https://uspsa.org/nationals - all i see is a "More Info Coming Soon" CTA... Does anyone have the actual match registration link they could share with me?
  6. That makes total sense. Let me ask this: do you think having an importer who imports them was a direct result of an entrepreneur (future importer) and the maker (Tanfoglio) seeing an increased interest in Tanfo products in the US? And if the answer is yes, which I think is a reasonable logical chain here, then would it be appropriate to say that the interest may have been spiked by the number of podiums that gun was on? Have we not seen that pattern before - win today, sell later today?
  7. Apparently there are some built in features in the current software version that may accomplish this: https://invisioncommunity.com/features/engagement/
  8. Sorry, but it's not though... it's actually exactly what i would aim to avoid with this feature request. What i am asking for a like/dislike button underneath a post that allows participants to show their preference on the topic without having to post a one word or one emoji reply that only adds to clutter.
  9. Exactly! Could have been just a "usuck" click Seriously though - i dont know what that reply means coming from the site official... perhaps you're referring to some previous attempts to make it happen that were shut down? I dont know - havent been reading any of the Forum Tech Support areas
  10. Hi admin team Are there any plans to add ability to use emoticons as reactions to posts, similar to other social media platforms? Use case scenario: someone replies to a thread that you're reading or following and you just want to say "thanks" or simply agree/disagree with the points made, but dont want to make another inane "i agree/you suck" or "Thank you" post. Thanks in advance
  11. While Stoeger may not be your usual or "normal" brand ambassador (and by that i mean the constant barrage of social media posts filled with redundant and unoriginal technique tips and product plugs), one would argue that his record and influence on Tanfo sales in the US alone (the single biggest firearm market) should be enough to carry the brand forward. That said, i love my CZs and am not planning on changing to anything else any time soon
  12. Of course. What we do know is that we could use a bit of simple math during stage planning to make sure that decision is a good one, rather than rely on a gut feeling. If you know or can estimate the HF for the stage, you can then calculate how much it would cost (and if it makes sense) to make up any shot, ultimately resulting in a better strategy for the stage.
