  1. Wo, now we're just getting crazy.
  2. We shot IDPA style matches with shotguns in similar fashion on plates. We followed the rule of a 12 yards minimum and were good. The IDPA standard is 10 yards for steel and I think similar for USPSA.
  3. I wonder if this will actually have the effect of increasing the number of Production shooters, especially with Glocks/M&P types.
  4. Yes, I bought my last pistol (which is RD compatible) with the view that as the eyesight deteriorated I'd probably shift from iron sights over to it.
  5. 1. The strong desire to get my head handed to me. 2. As has already been noted, usually the stage props are more developed. While I have found local clubs can put on stages as good or better ( and frequently we steal the stages for our own local matches) they typically don't have all the gear to put together the typically prop intensive stages for every stage that are often seen at majors.
  6. If not one pops up with one, give me specific details and I could probably work up a quick one.
  7. Thats brilliant! You're already steps ahead of me. I may try that in the future. I have heard very good things about Hunter's Gold.
  8. Remember the issue is really the prescription. You can get many types of sunglasses and safety glasses with prescription. But the prescription itself has to be tailored to shooting. In your area ask around for a good doc who works with shooters on their prescriptions. It really helps. ...then later get a carry optics like everyone else with bad eyesight...:)
  9. You could actually do "shooting" scenarios online. Have a shooter doing his thing and the instructor go through what was wrong, where to best stand etc. etc. Frankly its a good thought for a best practices tips videos. As an SO/RO (depending on match), I'd love some sort of best practices session or videos like that.
  10. In addition to all these points: look up USPSA stages as well. They can give you ideas. Clubs I am at have often adopted USPSA stages with minor tweeks to make things different. Facebook has a USPSA and ISPSC Stage Design Page which has interesting stages that can be excellent fuel for stages.
  11. 3 gun. If they can bring a full carbine to your pistol match, they will win...
  12. Its not bad, although I prefer pasters. In central Texas the air is on fire 9 months out of the year, so that is the least of our problems.
  13. Edited per mod comment above. Apologies as I don't know how to delete.
  14. Also just common masking tape works, but I prefer pasters myself.
