    Looks for Match

  1. This is my understanding of the rules as well. You would be arguing that you are re-engaging that target from the next POC. The final POCs fault line however is effectively the end of the stage, there's no out for shooting on the otherside of that last fault line.
  2. My PSA AKV is easily my most reliable gun. But... it's only pistol configuration so you'll need the taccom barrel extension or SBR to get a stock on it. This being said, it's really not that cheap. My PSA AR9 has been reliable, with the main caveat, those glock mags (like any other) do not like getting dirty. That's the main source of problems As with anything PSA, look for anything with a thread, undo it, loctite and torque it down.
  3. Shot 1 match so far with the pair I got. It was just IDPA though so not many rounds down range. Another USPSA match on Sunday.
  4. Just did a quick load and strip out 5 times with steel cased rounds. Worked. Unlike the 31rds which seem to get jammed with 6 left to go. They easily load 41, and do load 42 but i'd be surprised if you could get it to seat with the bolt closed. Will be shooting tomorrow with it.
  5. Ordered... I'm wondering if this will still be as reliable at feeding steel.
  6. Yeah same. I don't know what a J hook is. I do run titanium pins...
  7. Where do I get my hands on that stuff? I definitely like his article. I even tried ATF, but man, smells way too much compared to Mobil 1.
  8. Thanks for the input guys, it seems to me that nobody at least whome said something here, thinks it's reasonable to abide by all fault lines from all PoCs at all times.
  9. So when the SO issued the PE, he said that you have to abide by all fault lines from all PoCs. This strikes me as odd but defendable interpretation of the rules. For me, PoC is mutually exclusive. You may be able to physically stand in a single place and be in multiple PoCs at a time, but for the purpose of faulting, only one fault line can be used to determine if you are in or out and that's defined by which target you are engaging. The alternative, is that you have to abide by all fault lines on the stage at all times. I don't think the rule book has anything to support one interpretation over the other explicitly, but it certainly makes stage design much harder with a "all fault lines" approach since it would be very easy to end up making stages that simply cannot be shot, like my example where only at position C are you within all fault lines, but cannot see any targets. Is this covered in match admin?
  10. Thanks for the input, but it's still basically the opposite of what I'm trying to get to the bottom of. If I shoot from a, target T1, do I get a PE for faulting the cover line eminating from P2? If I shoot from b, target T1, do I get a PE for faulting the cover line eminating from P3? I completely understand that it's possible to be behind all cover lines on a stage at one time, my question is do you HAVE to be behind all cover lines at all times and failing that get a foot fault PE.
  11. But in such an instance, you are not asked to respect all lines of cover at all times. You're picking a side, and your respecting the fault line attached to that cover. What I'm asking about, is if you are to engage a target, can you be subject to other fault lines beyond the one attached to the PoC you are firing from? ie. like in my diagram, fault lines extending from completely separate cover objects / poc.

    It also confirms DPP footprint and Romeo1 Pro having a DPP footprint... I wonder where the Sig Romeo 2? MAX sits ...

    Does anyone have the spec sheet that's just a thumbnail in this? It looks like a metalish frame, so... how much weight exactly? Whoop, just saw the osage county page, 43.5OZ!!!
  14. I've been using those sleeves for golf for a few years now. They are wonderful. The white does a great job of reflecting the sun's energy, it literally feels cool when you wear them. And not applying as much sunscreen means your hands aren't as... gooey for golf..... ahem... shooting. Amazon has a lot of options for those sleeves, like 3 pair for $10 kinda thing. I have a few of them in every bag I own in case I'm caught out by the freak occurrences of burning hot sun here in PNW.
  15. WSB: Starting at P1, draw and engage T1. Proceed through the stage shooting available targets from cover. For the purpose of this diagram I've included hypothetical positions A,B and C where a shooter is engaging T1 from the cover of P1. A is inside the fault line of P1, outside of the fault line projected by P2, inside of the fault line projected by P3 B is inside the fault line of P1, inside of the fault line projected by P2, outside of the fault line projected by P3 C is inside the fault line of P1, insideof the fault line projected by P2, inside of the fault line projected by P3, but also can no longer has T1 visible to the shooter. Please explain what you think should happen. Please assume this stage is already built, and you are the shooter that has just been issued a penalty and you've asked the RO, what rule was broken? If you are adamant that this stage design is simply illegal, please provide the rule that the stage designer needed to abide by. This happened to a shooter this weekend on a similar stage.
