  1. Hello, as a new shooter (started last year) i will have my first IPSC classifiers this summer. I am therefore studying the stage set-ups, even reproducing some for dry fire practice. Classifier 69 (see attached diagram - credits: ipsc-tech.org) puzzles me as regards how to shoot it. Stage begins with 3 far open targets, 23 meters/75 feet, to be engaged from position A 'with a minimum of two round each', then reload and proceed to position B, same string, and so forth up to position D. Total rounds to be scored is 8 per target. Based on my skill level, shooting from 23 meters/75 feet will give me bad splits and potential mikes (not to mention the added challenge of a first DA shot). Next station is the same, at 14 meters/45 feet, which is probably more than what I am used to shoot in competition. Positions C and D give me confidence of hitting the target reliably in controlled pairs. Now, I will ask a question without being cheeky about it: i shoot and compete for fun, i am not looking for shortcuts, but rather to elaborate a strategy including make up shots. Is it allowed to point and shoot rapid pairs engaging the targets from positions A and B, and engage from C and D with 3 or 4 shots each target? This would make it likely to obtain the required minimum 8 hits on each target. The efficiency would be brought by comparing splits obtainable at differing distances: I can shoot 4 shots at 7 meters faster and more reliably than 2 shots at 23, so I am better off doing it. Fact: Would this comply with the stage instructions/IPSC rules? Opinion: Would you consider this to be sporting behaviour?
  2. I started this sport a little late in life at 49, and now 5 years into it, I can see why they set the age for senior at 55. I can definitely feel old age starting to creep up… Honestly, I always thought it would be great to make Master I but never really thought it would be possible. Last year I made production A class and spent a day and a half with Shannon Smith, and I think reaching Master just may be possible. Although, the recent updates to the classifier high hit factors really hurts… I know it’s generally not recommended, but I’ve started shooting classifiers a lot in practice. Since Master is my goal, it seems to make sense to use classifiers as a benchmark to test myself against and learn from. Not to mention I really stink at classifiers in general… My early live fire training was focused on a lot of field course work. This was really helpful with transitioning from running/moving to accurate shooting modes and seemed to make me fairly successful in matches overall, but I perform poorly in classifiers. Long story short… I need help. I’ve really put a lot of work into getting where I’m at today and improvements seem to be harder to come by. I’ve currently got several issues I’m dealing that I’ll detail in my next post. It really boils down to pride. B class was good, and I’m was super happy when I made A class, but “Master” really sound nice. Master.. master.. maaaasteerr Yea… You guys have been an extremely valuable resource over the years, and I know I’ll benefit greatly from your feedback. I know we all love talking about the sport we love, but detailed replies take a lot of time, so let me go ahead and say how much I appreciate all the help.
  3. To get classified you need to have 4 on record, but as you accumulate more it averages your best 6. So when I shoot a 'classifier match' I have 6 classifiers submitted. USPSA takes the best 4 and gives a Classification. But then a week later the run the update and average the 6 and my % Drops but the Classification remains the same. Does that seem silly to anyone? Its happened to me were my percentage is a C but my class is a B. And another guy I shoot with mentioned the same thing happened to him. In my simple 8 round brain, if its a classifier match and I have 6 scores entered on the same day, then those 6 should all go towards my initial classification. I would guess a computer program should be able to distinguish that 6 classifier scores, with the same submission date and same match name were all shot the same day and ALL 6 should be used for initial classification.
  4. Forgive me if this has been asked before. In recent years, IDPA has allowed you to shoot a classifier in a more restrictive division (e.g., CDP) and automatically have your score applied in a less restrictive division (e.g., ESP) as well. Has this ever been considered for USPSA? I believe you could have a rig that would fit into both Lim10 and Production, for example, or both Single Stack and Lim10. Any reason why you shouldn't be able to shoot once and have your classification calculated for all applicable divisions?

  11. Hi folks, I just released my iOS app for calculating classifier percentages while offline, so I thought it was worthy of a new post to sum up what I have available these days. The site and apps are all free. https://azshooters.org/- online calculator https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.azshooters.calc- android app, works offline https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/azs-calc/id1053517805?ls=1&mt=8- iOS app, works offline If you run into any problems with anything, let me know! We have a FB group (https://www.facebook.com/groups/1485056835140641/) and there's a feedback page on the site... either is a good place. Any feedback, ratings, or reviews are appreciated. Cheers, Jake
  12. This Saturday my local USPSA club is doing a classifier match. They've released which stages they're doing and I was hoping for help, suggestions, tips, tricks etc. I'm exceedingly new to competition pistol shooting, this being my second match. Any and all help appreciated. We're going to shoot CM 03-05, CM 13-06, CM 03-09, CM 03-18, CM 06-10, and CM 09-03.
  13. Hello All, There will be an all Classifier Match held at MCRC in Columbia (Gaston), SC on 14 March 2015. There will be six classifiers with a round count of approximately 80 rounds. Registration will start at 0900 and the first shots at 1000. Here is a map to the range: https://www.google.com/maps/place/Mid+Carolina+Rifle+Club/@33.872427,-81.128195,15z/data=!4m7!1m4!3m3!1s0x88f8bfafdadb0987:0x83303406cf5fb9d1!2s3435+Fish+Hatchery+Rd,+Gaston,+SC+29053!3b1!3m1!1s0x0000000000000000:0xd2f9556e0530c89d?hl=en This is a great time to up your classification or get classified in another division. Hope to see you all at the range!
  14. Several USPSA classifiers require a "standard" table, or a "standard height" table, or a "standard card table." Are there specified dimensions or specifications for these, or do they truly mean any folding card table of dimensions that are unremarkable and common? Thanks in advance!
  15. I am trying to find how they calculate the percentage of one shooters time compared to the fastest time. I am having trouble finding the formula used for this. For example if the fastest time on a given stage is 15.78 seconds and someone shoots it in 23.58 seconds. How to you calculate that in a percentage? From what I understand this is how the 3 gun nation classifiers are calculated, then the last 4 are averaged to get your classification.
  16. This coming Saturday, June 7th is the next regularly scheduled USPSA match for the club. With the usual 4 stages including a classifier. The match starts at 7AM. Please Pre-Register at the link listed here. https://clubs.practiscore.com/june-uspsa-match-phoenix-rod-and-gun-club/register Afterwards, we will again hold the Rifle match starting at 3pm after we change the stages up a bit.

Since 3pm is usually the hottest time of the day, we might want to start a little later in the summer. Please let me know what you think. Please also pre-register for that match on this different link: https://clubs.practiscore.com/june-rifle-match-phoenix-rod-and-gun-club/register Pre-Registering is very helpful as is saves me allot of time and helps me to plan for how to best run the match.

I will also spend the entire day Friday there making sure that the match is ready for you on Saturday. Any and all help is appreciated at any time that is convenient for you. In addition you can shoot the match for free in addition to cash for gas/lunch. Please email me if you can help.

  22. Got the results of my classifier today ... MM in SSP. I'm quite impressed, but I realise I have a very long way to go. Total score 189.55 with 73 points down. And I dropped 50 of those on the third stage. Suggestions? Slow down and get more on the targets? Conventional wisdom seems to be that you "cannot miss fast enough".
  23. The Palmetto Gun Club in Summerville SC (Charleston Metro Area) will run a Classifier match January 5, 2013. We are planning to run at least 5 classifiers (maybe sneak in a 6th).
