  1. Show me a full diameter hole in whatever hardcover I supposedly hit and prove that it was my shot, or count it.
  2. I couldn't zoom so I didn't realize there was another wall there. if it is not impacting the view fo T3 and T4 or the poppers from opposite side then i see no issue
  3. This type of variance, at least to me, is not acceptable as it affects the time to finish the stage as it requires more time to move the extra distance. So your club is at a disadvantage in this case. An inch here or there in target and wall placement is one thing. Target overlap should be exact as possible (even the official targets may have variations in size, etc) and that is doable within the tolerances of the targets dimensions themselves.
  4. I have only seen one person use shooting gloves in USPSA (she was a new to USPSA shooter at her first match) and never once in SCSA. I'll about I've only got about 2 years of matches under my belt but still. I have not seen anyone use a sling either, even though it appears to be legal in PCC.
  5. How do you enforce #2? So those that want to abide by local laws get screwed by those that don't care for #3? If a range applies 3.3.1 or whatever it is and forces 10 rounds in all divisions it won't get a lot of repeat shooters.
  6. *thumb rest [generic]* I am not a fan of, but OFM like parts in mass produced guns is fine with me, even if the gun was produced just for this game and division. It's still no mag wells, no rackers, no optics, no frame weights, no comp or optic, limited capacity, etc that makes it fun and less of a money pit.
  7. There are still weight limits, no magwells, no slide rackers, no slide cuts, no SAO.
  8. Still not a DQ because I set it on the ground it on a stable platform. If it was balanced when I let go I satisfied the rules. If it falls over after that then it does not meet the glossary definition of dropped gun
  9. But if the gun falls off the table or even falls and muzzles someone/180's, how is it the shooters fault and responsibility when they were not in control at the time and the gun was placed in accordance with the rules? I can't be blamed for acts of nature (wind blowing over table for example) or the RO not maintaining stage props
  10. They can only do so through forbidden actions and off limits areas that are predefined in the WSB
  11. Agreed. 10.5.3 requires the competitor to drop or cause to fall. Neither happens here.
  12. Why don't you go shoot limited since you want a change. Let production be.
  13. Then in this case what is "within the fault lines" when there is no fault line at the wall to constrain said "within"? Had it said "within the shooting area" there would be no (or fewer) questions
  14. But the WSB says "from within the fault lines" and the definition of fault line is "A physical ground reference line in a course of fire which defines the limit(s) of the shooting area." It does NOT say "from within the shooting area" which would include the projection to the ground from the wall in addition to the fault lines. So by being within the forward projection of the fault lines, I am sill "within the fault lines"... Gamers gonna game
  15. well there is a rule that allows no rear fault line and the berms are a default fault lines since you can't go up them.
  16. But what rule(s) would you cite to request a change from as-built?
  17. Shoot the left targets from within the fault lines then run around to the front and from within the forward projection of the side fault lines shoot the rest from as far away as you want
  18. There seems to be one post that implies it is okay to go under and another that says otherwise. Then the rest is speculation or off topic. So what is the ruling here? The WSB declares the bottom is open so without a fault line and the wall does not go to the ground, what rule(s) would you use to penalize a shooter that simple shoots the left and runs around the front? Or what interpretation of what rule and why? The stage name is "Technicality"...
  19. 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.
  20. I say not supposed to because of several things. An RO's response or how they ask the question could be seen as coaching. The shooter's response could purposely be incorrect to force contact with the RO but they "changed their mind at the last minute". There might not be a specific rule for it, but when Troy gave my RO class he said to not do it for reasons similar to above. The RO has a job to do. Maybe s\he should just stick to that. I've RO'd noobs and GM's and only once did I have contact with a shooter (incidental contact after the last shot). I've never asked a shooter, that wasn't in my new shooter class, the direction they were going.
  21. As an RO you aren't supposed to ask that and as a shooter you have no obligation to answer or follow through if you do answer.
  22. The problem with not being close as the RO during a retreat is if there is a malfunction or other reason the stage needs to be scored as shot its not possible if you aren't capturing the shots correctly
  23. This will eventually lead to dedicated squad RO's and hopefully they get comp'd or discounted match fees for the trouble. But some days I just want to shoot... It would be nice if there was a pool to draw from at each local club. Maybe I'll propose that where I shoot.
