November Action Match

Sunday, November 12th we will be having our monthly match.  However, being it's towards the end of the year we're going to tone it down a little.  We're going to have 6 stages like normal and a round count of 150-200 rounds, but this time we're going to limit the shooting to pistol caliber carbine or pistol.  One gun.  No provision for multi-gun.  No provision for shotgun or rifle.  We will use the same rules as usual, more or less, and it will be timed and scored, but it will likely be a little more relaxed than usual.  The match fee will be $30.

The match day schedule is as follows:
7:30 finish set up (help is always appreciated)
8:00 registration begins
8:30 registration ends (anyone arriving after 8:30 is a spectator)
8:45 mandatory match briefing
9:00 shooting begins

The divisions will be:
PCC Lim - like our rifle rules for Lim.  One optic with no magnification, 30 round mags after         the start signal, etc.
PCC TO - like our rifle rules for TO.  One optic, magnification allowed, 30 round mags after         the start signal, etc.
PCC Open - like our rifle rules for Open. Multiple optics, unlimited magazine capacity.

Pro - Think USPSA Production pistol.  Safe Action, DA, semis with 10 round mag limit.
Limited - Think USPSA Limited without the power factor.
Open - Think USPSA Open without the power factor.

Others?  If you see a niche you want a division for let me know.
