Production poll results

I think the results of the poll are pretty clear.  Although a lot of people think that we should allow 15 round capacity, and a few "anything goes" the vast majority agree that we should closely follow USPSA Production equipment rules.

After monitoring the debate and comments I think the concensus is that we allow people who want to shoot USPSA Production type equipment have the Production division, and anyone who wants to shoot a production type gun with modifications and/or high capacity mags can shoot in Limited and be at no real disadvantage.

Limited, and Open equipment rules are already very close to USPSA so I think we should leave them the same, with no major and minor power factors.

Revolver should also remain tied to USPSA equipment rules as far as I am concerned.

Single Stack....Ah, that is interesting.  Hence the next poll.

USPSA Single stack is messed up in my opinion.  The one thing I heartily disagree with is that minor calibers may load 10 rounds in a mg while major may only load 8.  That's not going to work for us for sure because there is no major or minor in IMGA/Time Plus scoring.  So what do we do?

The four choices don't show up well in the poll.  They are:

- Allow only 8 rounds in any caliber
- Allow 10 rounds in any caliber
- Allow only eight in .45 but ten in 9mm or .40
- Allow only 8 in .40 or .45 but ten in 9mm

And please comment.  Remember Anonymous comments don't carry as much weight as ones that the owner is not afraid of.

Production division poll

Note there is a poll just to the right of this column asking what we should do about Production division next year.  We are not going to be USPSA sanctioned next year so we will have to write in our own rules for pistol only divisions.

My first thought on Production is that we should closely follow USPSA rules so that if you do shoot USPSA matches it will be very similar with no equipment differences.  However, we do have the option of removing mag capacity restrictions or anything else we want to do.  So, I ask you, what do you think?

Please leave comments to this post as well.  Your opinions are important (as long as they're not anonymous)

November USPSA match

On Sunday, November 11th, we will be hosting a 6 stage USPSA match in which all 6 stages will be classifiers.

The entry fee will be $20 and there will only be one time slot 9:00am.  We will finish set up and registration at 8:00am and match briefing will be at 8:45am.

To sign up for this match email us at yorksignup@gmail.com and tell us your:
- Name
- Division
- USPSA #
- Anyone you wish ot be squadded with.

We will only be taking 40 shooters, and the round count is under 50 rounds so this match should go very quickly. The entire match will be shot in the back pits, and the registration and match briefing will be near the back gate.

There will be no multi-gun options available this month, and you may not use rifle or shotgun to shoot this match. It would be possible to use a pistol caliber carbine and shoot it for fun.

Some of us will be shooting Monday, 11/5 at 12:00pm for score because we have conflicts on match day.  If you would like to shoot Monday let us know and you will be welcome to join us.

There is some possibility some of us will shoot Saturday the 10th for score.  Please comment if that interests you, and if there is sufficient interest we will arrange it.
