Not sure I've ever posted over in this corner of the Forum before. I am anxious enough about different match rules to get some confirmation from others who haev been at more tches and different matches than I have. I've looked at 3 Gun Nation Club rules, Rockcastle ProAm rules, FNH3G rules, SMM3G rules, Ironman rules, Texas Multigun rules, RM3G rules, and one or two more. I was initially looking at all the subtle differences for Heavy Metal. But I was also looking up in the "Open" sections since I currently shoot that locally. I saw almost identical rule statements. Functionally, they appeared to reach identical end results for Open division. Is this the thinking that the more experienced in the crowd have? I'm thinking "One set of sticks for Open and I can go virtually anywhere" without having to suddenly get a different gun (I'm looking at you "1911 or nothing rules" in some Heavy Metal games, because I have a M&P 45 not a 1911). I'm using that just as an example. I'm not confused by the divisions. I only want to get some "Yeah you're reading it right. I shoot Open and I don't really have to change anything no matter where I go." Or, "Well kinda, except at this place.....<whatever story inserted here>" I'm doing Open currently in what I call "mostly assed" mode. I need to clean up some of my configurations and then get *much* better. It's more than half assed, but not up to full speed. I've got a few other guns but never compete with them. Thinking how to simplify things to possibly one set of competitions guns (just three) and then focus hard on improving my skills with only them. I don't shoot enough or often enough to build good skills in two divisions. Keeps ammo supplies/logistics more manageable as well. Anyway, thanks in advance for your quick comments below and either confirming or refuting my conclusion that Open rules are "open enough" to be valid almost anywhere.
