Recommended Posts

Does anyone know if coverage of the 2019 European Handgun Championship is being streamed anywhere online?

Just about a 7 minute video of the British open team. I guess in IPSC you can’t run outside of the fault lines to the next position?

Correct

Which is a much better way to do things, honestly. Makes it easy to create much more interesting stage designs without assembling a dozen barrels or as many yards of wall section.

I agree with this 100%.

As a stage designer I would love to see this come to USPSA.

The IPSC rule about stepping outside fault lines says:

2.2.1.5 If a COF has a passageway visibly delineated by fault lines and/or a clearly demarcated shooting area, any competitor who takes a shortcut by stepping on the ground outside the passageway and/or shooting area will incur one procedural penalty for each shot fired after beginning the shortcut.

 

There's also:

1.1.5.1 Level I and Level II matches are not required to comply strictly with the freestyle requirements or round count limitations (see Section 1.2).

... So, I've been in a Level II, where there were pretty long sprints between 3 shooting areas, and the pathways (where you were not allowed to shoot) were not delineated by fault lines.

I completely disagree.  Shooting areas are enough. I have seen ipsc stages where the shooter had to zigzag or run in some oddball fashion for no reason other than somebody wanted them to, it had nothing to do with shooting the stage. Kind of like when someone will post on these forums about wanting a shooter to run 30 yards before they ever get to their gun.

You can do that under USPSA rules, too, if you want to.

Just a different way to design a stage.

@perttime Yeah but it takes ropes and such, you can't just say don't do it

Yep. USPSA forces you to use more elaborate props if the designer wants you to stay out of specific areas.

I am torn, I like the idea that you must stay in the fault lines, but also see that like stated above it could cause designs to become a do this because i said so and add no value to the stage.

Did anybody hear something about Stoeger's gun breaking at this match?  I saw a comment somewhere on social media that Ben was having issues with the chamber on his gun, but that sort of issue usually results in one or more dumpster fire stages, not being consistently beaten by ~10% (unless it was inducing sporadic malfunctions).  Besides, I would imagine he has a backup if that was the case.
