For people that will never shoot it, I don't get the resistance.
State up front that people need to man up and shoot the hard lean/rope type stages with one arm or accept the procedurals. Stop acting like we don't make stage design decisions for different guns- 8 round arrays are for a reason, as are no tiny low ports that eliminate dot and big stick use. Don't pretend like we don't make general exceptions either; what happens when an amputee shows up to shoot one of your vaunted rope stages? One of the proudest moments of my time as a shooter was seeing a vet in a wheel chair wheeling around the stages while others reloaded his mags with a huge shit-eating grin on his face. Level III match? To him it was.
We thrive because we present a variety of interesting shooting challenges that a variety of people with a variety of guns can do. So long as it doesn't slow the match down (1 gun per shooter solves this) or present safety problems (slung, flagged, open, cased- they are all equally safe) why does anyone care? My somewhat gun-shy wife shot my PCC for the first time today- not only did she claim if for her own, she is interested in shooting matches with it! This is a perfect venue for new and especially junior shooters.
