  1. Apparently there are some built in features in the current software version that may accomplish this: https://invisioncommunity.com/features/engagement/
  2. 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.
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. 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.
  7. He would have likely lost points since he already "clicked" once... then he needs to assess, react, reload and fire the make up shot (has to be an alpha) in under 1.5-2 seconds (hard to tell exact number without knowing the stage and HF). It doesnt make sense to reload and shoot that last shot - you're hurting your score. Yep. It's simple math really. Divide 1 point by HF. Then, in this case, 10xResult (avoid the miss penalty) + 5xResult (assuming the make up was an A) Lets say this was a 5HF stage = .2 sec per point. 10 x 0.2 + 5 x 0.2 = 3 sec. Lets say this was an 8HF stage = .125 sec per point. 10 x 0.125 + 5 x 0.125 = 1.875 sec
  8. Hi all. I have been looking for a magwell for my Glock 9MM NFA lower and besides the TechWell offering that fits NFA, CK Arms and a couple of other lowers - i cant seem to find anything. Trying to find an inexpensive solution and 3D printing seems to be the way to go. I cant find any 3D designs online for my specific lower... but looks like they do exist: http://www.makereadyproshop.com/taccom-magwell-pcc-magazine-funnel/ Does any one have a file they could share with me? Or a lead on where to find it? Thank you in advance!
  9. PCC advantage over what? Another PCC? Who cares? <- a rhetorical question since so many people seem to be so annoyed with it... Seems like PCC is the equivalent of the MAGA hats - triggering people worse than Stoeger's 7th Nationals win. "Triggered by PCC" ... i am going to design a T-shirt and sell it - I bet that will pay for enough ammo to make a "paper" GM this season. I wasnt even planning on ever shooting PCC in USPSA... but now that i see all the controversy with it - i am going to try it in 2019.
  10. On 1/7/2019 at 10:05 PM, IVC said: I think these are very valid points. I am sure this has been brought up more than once over the years. Youtube search would show too many badly called 180 violations... And while "photos, audio and/or video recordings are not accepted as evidence", i think with all the advances in technology over the last 6-7 years and common use of GoPros there is a case to be made at least at higher level matches to allow for video evidence review. If not the final and decisive evidence, then at least for CRO/RM consideration or during arbitration? So why wouldn't the membership request (and leadership consider) amending that rule? I've wondered about this for a while, any insider info or opinions from the veterans of the sport?
  11. That first part is what i disagree with - Production IS a VERY competitive division. Just look at the number of people in it and the number of Ms/GMs in it. Perhaps we use "competitive" to describe different things? Do you mean just "overall match placement"? I see "competitive" as "a high level of participation combined with a high level of skill to challenge any level of shooter". In other words, will a Production M/GM level competitor be able to compete against a reasonable pool of and face a good challenge from his peers as well as from upcoming A and maybe even B class challengers? I actually struggled with that definition before posting I think maybe a working definition could be someone who is consistently scoring at the top of their Division classification bracket while also scoring better than the lower 1/3 of the next bracket. Of course, that assumes a decent representation of not just the division, but also brackets at a given match. Winning Production at a local match where you have 6 total Prod shooters of which only three are classified doesnt mean a lot, IMO. Placing in the top third of your class while placing better than the bottom third of the next class at a major match, even if overall placement is in double or even triple digits represents a "solid [division] shooter" to me. I think that's a good point. If I had only a handful of people to compete against in my division - i would pick a more competitive one (based on my acceptance criteria of "competitive division").
  12. I dont think thats a correct way of looking at things. Why would you compare apples and oranges? If a Production shooter were to gauge his performance based on Overall placement against PCC and Open guns... well that's just asking for unfounded disappointment from setting unreasonable expectations. Unless you want to compare overall target accuracy which still means very little when Major PF shooters care much more about speed than about dropping a bunch of Charlies. I think Production is much more challenging and requires more skill and focus for the very same reasons you mentioned - limited capacity, minor PF, iron sights, magazine placement, etc. I think it's a higher badge of honor to be a solid Production shooter.
  13. Got it. Thank you! As i mentioned, it was a rhetorical question, considering the vast amount of experience and knowledge i was "questioning" . But having witnessed those things at local matches, i wouldnt want someone relatively new (like me) to misinterpret what was written. I understand and agree 100%. The case i was describing (finger) was not a new shooter (time in sport wise). The second case (loaded gun at MR) - the violation was clear and age/experience should not have mattered, IMO.
