Oh he's GOOD!!! B)

Read the article? It's damn interesting! Someone shot a 44 mag in the competition.....

Read the article- and your right- damn interesting.

Our Major today would probably not make Major then; .45 ACP hardball was the standard, which is what? About 195.5? More?

A back roll to ensure their holster retained the gun; try that today and we'd probably DQ half the shooters or more, not in the condition the holsters are in at the time the timer is sounded. Magazine might litter the ground like trash at an OWS location.

Don't get me wrong, I love our sport like it is. I'm not a badass death ninja black-oper. We were gaming back then as well with snicks and compensator/ports/whatevers.

It's not called gaming when all you are doing is following the rules.

The rules did not say they could not do this or that, so they did it. Simple.

But hell we have come a long way. Ask Brian, TGO and he drove it for a while.

Snick.....A gunfighting holster rig....

http://www.warriortalk.com/showthread.php?93922-My-Snick-Holster-Gunfighting-Rig&p=1293641#post1293641

And I don't know how many used compensated pistols, but there were 30 open shooters....The match was restricted to 125 shooters....95 in the "Championship Class" and 30 in the "Open" class.....

Trick question...There is a difference between ported and compensated..... :angry2:

Even your article doesn't say that they were compensated....and erroneously says that the cuts were used as a muzzle brake....They were ported, nothing more... :ph34r:

From the article you posted Grumpy...

So at least one gun was compensated. It was fired by Ray Chapman according to the quote.

I'm going to say that all the opens (30) were compensated and all the champion division guns where not. Also Grumpy thank you for this article very much! I read the whole issue from that post and was particularly entertained by three things above the rest...

1. The ad for the RCBS Rock Chucker. Especially the part that calls it fast :goof:

2. The Massad Ayoob authored article just after the nationals article. I had not realized just how long he has been a recognized contributor to handgunner.

3. The ad for Vega 1911 frames on page 68. Lol I've heard about these but have never seen one. Unless the name changed and I just don't realize what I'm looking at.

Great job Grumpy!
