Soligen Posted March 14, 2004 Share Posted March 14, 2004 Hi, I'm new to the USPSA - justs got my membership packet this week. I've shot some practice at my local club, but have not yet shot a match. I have a question for the rules change happening for Production Division. Specifically the striking of the "First shot must be double action" clause. I have a CZ 85 Combat in 9mm. All CZ 85's are on the approved list for production. This gun can operate as Single Action with a safety, or as Double Action if I manually decock the hammer. Here are the questions. Page 52 of the USPSA rule book (8.1.2) specifies the staring conditions for 3 types of auto-loaders, which are listed as Single Action, Double & Safe Action, and Selective Action. Is my gun considereed Selective Action? Assuming it is Selective action, then there are two valid starting conditions: decocked, or cocked with safety on. In Appendix E for Production Division (page 92) item "d" states that single action pistols are not allowed, and the the phrase "First shot must be double action" is being removed in the new rules. Since my gun is Selective Action, it is allowed (i.e. not Single Action). Since cocked and locked is a valid starting condition for Selective Action guns, does this mean I can take the first shot in Single Action mode under the new rules? Where before I was looking to have to manually decock to shoot production, now, under the new rules, I don't think I have to. Is this right, or am I missing something?
