  1. I recently traded in my older Chevy for a new GMC. While the older truck had a hard fiberglass shell over the bed, I decided to put a metal/plastic tri-fold on the new truck. Most likely the tri-fold will be enough to stop common crooks but I decided to lock my guns under the rear seat with padlocks and cables. So far so good.
  2. But once you are classified in Production, either your Limited or Production classification may change to reflect which one is higher. The other will to one level lower or better. Say you have an "A" card in Limited, then your first classification in Production will be at least "B" or higher, no matter what percentage the Production classifier is calculated at.
  3. Under Appendix A3: Loaded firearm A firearm having a live round, empty case or dummy round in the chamber or cylinder or having a live or dummy round in a magazine inserted in the firearm. Per Rule 10.5.13 "Having a loaded firearm other than when specifically ordered to by the Range Officer." Dummy rounds are considered ammunition and if they magically appear at the "make ready" command, we are looking at a match DQ.
  4. Has anyone with a PCC ever had problems with ammo detonating when they tried this?
  5. Not so. Brownells for one offers the 4# containers of N330. https://www.brownells.com/reloading/powder/rifle-powder/n330-smokeless-powder-1-lb-sku749018466-122995-225068.aspx Same price as N320 and N340.
  6. Shooting Boxes and Fault Lines should be constructed of wooden boards or other suitable material, must be fixed firmly in place, and provide both physical and visual references to competitors. For hard ground surfaces clear of debris, 0.75-inch material is the minimum allowable size. On other range surfaces, such as covered with turf, sand, gravel, wood chips or similar, thicker material which rises at least 1.5 inches above the surface is recommended. The rear fault line does not appear to be in compliance. Did anyone actually have a foot fault on this stage?
  7. Not yet. Someone called the manufacturer and found out delivery may be closer to the end of the year.
  8. I agree but it may be a bad habit to get used to. If I want the hammer back, I do it outside the holster then apply the safety followed by placing the gun in the holster..
  9. The back surgery was an L4/L5 Laminectomy. Took several months to realize I had become faster going right to left versus left to right. Part of my dry fire practice is running different classifiers and so far it seems to work best for me.
  10. I'm right handed and one of the 10% that shoot it right to left. I've been that way since back surgery back in 2015. I agree that the section coordinator should be the one to lower the boom.
  11. Not a big deal as a individual stage but what about the other USPSA shooters at other matches that shot it correctly? Just because someone has "CRO" behind their name does not make them any smarter. To top it off, they actually got two more CROs to agree with the first CRO's faulty interpretation.
  12. I don't see any dates on the stage. Possibly an older (pre-January) stage?
  13. Texas45 actually sold off his JP PCC to pick up a Sig PCC. Having second thoughts Tom?
  14. I'd also like to see the number of GM's in USPSA.
  15. We have a local club that hosts IDPA/USPSA matches on a monthly basis. Range limits are 50 cal and shotgun slugs. I don't see any reason to not try a 3 gun match. https://saddleriverrange.com/
  16. For me the benefit of an ambi-safety is I like to switch the selector to the "safe" position with my trigger finger. After a while it felt so natural that I've put ambi's on all my AR's. Early last season I gave one of the 60 degree throw safety selectors a try. I quickly put them on all my competition PCC's. I'm a big fan of the Hiperfire triggers so it was an easy decision to try the Hyperfire selector safety when they became available. An excellent safety.
  17. I replaced mine with an industrial strength paper clip. It been in place for several years now. I tried other things (like a small cotter pin) but the trimmed paper clip has worked the best.
  18. If the RM/MD wants to, they can find a "something" to support their position when backed into a corner. A while back I actually wasted my time taking something to arbitration. The MD/RM (who had no RO or CRO credentials) advised he was the final say in the matter. He spent 15+ minutes going through the rulebook unsuccessfully trying to justify his position. I on the other hand quickly found the relevant portion of the book that supported my side. The bottom line he decided that if I wanted to push the issue I would be DQ'd with USPSA Rule 10.6.1 (Unsportsmanlike Conduct).
  19. Since you indicate "subtitles" I suspect you are referring to the Korean made (2003) version of Oldboy. Have you seen the English version with Josh Brolin (2013)? How do they compare?
  20. Throwing ten charges and average should be sufficient unless you are trying to get the bare minimum PF. The closer you shoot for 125 PF minor or 165 PF major, the larger your sample needs to be.
  21. The opposing bays with covered areas in the middle is a good idea. Tables under the covered area would be nice. Sufficient number of bays to handle whatever kind of match you want to hold. Six or so for the monthly matches. Twelve for any kind of major matches. At least a few large bays to allow spread out stages. If possible, orient the bays so that you are not staring directly into the sun early in the morning or late in the evening. Sufficiently high berms on both the end of the bay and both sides. Sufficient drainage so that a little rain does not turn the bays into a mud pit. If you must use Porta Potties, keep them well maintained and clean. Have more than one and spread them around the range. Several scattered well marked Safety Areas each large enough that several shooters can gear up at the same time. Place them where they cannot interfere with active stages. Sufficient parking that is close to the range. Just my thoughts for the perfect range.
  22. But it will not be a USPSA approved target.
  23. If as you say it had a 3/4 hit with a 9mm bullet (~ 0.26") it was on either a defective target or a non-approved target. Per Appendix B-1, the USPSA Target has a 0.20" non-scoring border all around the target.
