3quartertime Posted March 13, 2004 Share Posted March 13, 2004 Ok,,, In answer to Ron A's rant and to give the other side a voice without impeding on his post lets give the hoser side of the story... Standards stages are designed for shooters that can't move. They want to just stand and shoot. These stages are redundant because a practiced shooter can break a called shot on any range/cover, distance isn't an issue. Shooters that hate hoser stages are static shooters. They feel a disadvantage from movement and want the stage wieghted on accuracy rather than agility. Hoser stages pronounce bad speed trigger control. If you hate hosing than you must not be able to blast at speed with accuracy. Shooting close targets demands that the shooter concentrate on points. The hit factor is so high that anything but an A is a loser. Standards shooters need the room for error. Practical shooting is 'Run-and-gun'... This isn't IDPA for a reason. We like to shoot things fast and accurately. We like to run and shoot. We like to have high adrenalin fun. Sue us!!! Cadence is a serious issue with a hoser stage. Cadence is the essence of USPSA shooting. Standards will never teach me proper cadence. Cadence is all about quick site aquisition and movement. Given enough time anyone can shoot A's at any distance. Ok,,, These are just discussion points. Don't attack me. I'm just trying to throw out some different ideas. I do design stages but I'm not that good. I have a terrific MD at our club that rocks!!! Bring it on!!! (This is a counter rant so feel free to post, but be civil or I will stop it...)
