  1. Just found it myself. List hasn't been updated with 2017 recipients yet. Looks like 2017 was a small class compared to recent years.
  2. I had some bead blasting done to my guns to "dress" them up a little. I like the two tone look. In the process we bead blasted the top of the receiver. With the dull, bead blasted rear notch the shiny front sight stands out like a diamond in a goat's a....well, you get the picture! Quickest sight picture I've every seen.
  3. I started out with a Stoeger. The gun was heavy, thick and slow...and didn't shoot to point of aim. I switched to a Baikal which is, in my opinion, the best of the low budget side by sides. Finally, I switched to an SKB in 2014. It was the single best move I've made in SASS to improve my times. The SKB fits me so well that one would think I had the gun customer built. The fit combined with the light weight and true point of aim has made follow up shots a thing of the past. But don't take my word for it. Get out there and borrow one for a match or two and make up your own mind.
  4. Wider, your point almost answers itself. RP takes stage difficulty into account to a certain degree. If you were fastest yet just one miss cost you 10 rank points the stage was undoubtedly a simpler stage or one where an inconsistency would affect you more. Anyway, RP or TT, I ain't about to quit or even slow down. This is the best damned game I've ever played!!!
  5. I prefer rank points for this simple reason, they favor the more consistent shooter. I've been at matches where I wasn't the fastest shooter but at the end of the day I was most consistent (no misses, no Ps) and won top gun. A good example would be Wyatt Earp. Not the fastest gun but always hit his target thereby proclaiming him the WINNER! I do respect and agree with the safety aspect of the OP though, and agree an MSV might need to carry more weight under any scoring system.
