3 clubs locally, S. California, have Pike class every match. 1911s load w. 5 rds. No issues. WB shooters are bunched together in posses.
No problem w. ROs clearing 1911s (what's hard about that?, same as USPSA or action pistol and most ROs are experienced semi-automatic shooters).
An old timer who used to shoot with us claimed that the Wild Bunch category was originally set up to shoot alongside regular SASS shooters (thus the 5 rd. magazine rule).
Anybody know if that is true?
Anyhow, Pike/SASS works great, no problems.
