elenius Posted January 3, 2007 Share Posted January 3, 2007 I'm reading the (2004) rule book (for the first time), and this surprised me: 188.8.131.52 The recommended balance for an IPSC match is a ratio of 3 Short Courses to 2 Medium Courses to 1 Long Course. where Short,Medium,Long courses have been previously (184.108.40.206-3) defined as being no more than 9/16/32 rounds. I've only shot 4 local club matches in Richmond, CA, and I'm pretty sure that ALL stages I've seen were Long Courses, except the classifiers. I also watched Matt Burkett's "IPSC Strategies" where he shoots the 2005 Area 2 championships, and all those stages seem to be of the Long kind as well. Is this just a recommendation that everyone ignores? If so, why is it in the rule book in the first place? Is this a USPSA vs IPSC difference? Did stages use to be much shorter?
