  1. I think these data are super interesting. As others have pointed out, a direct 1:1 interpretation of the matches with regard to time doesn't necessarily work, but two WR matches are the most similar data sets we're going to find. And time has to at least be the baseline metric, considering it's the metric we use to determine who wins. We can't necessarily say 'this year's top shooter would've beaten last year's!' But we can look at time spreads between groups, group trends, etc and possibly draw some conclusions. It seems like folks at the bottom of the score sheet did significantly better overall- was this due to the weather being better this year (was it? I wasn't there...)? Or, was the weather the same, or worse, and therefore not relevant? Was it due to a different style of stage writing that reduced the overall number of P's and misses? Or, are there more returning shooters, who are likely to accrue fewer penalties and generally shoot faster due to experience- thus making the bottom of the score sheet more competitive? The Duelist and Gunfighter categories seem to have improved over last year across all age groups. How did those shooting styles fare better- did this year's match include more stages 'friendly' to those styles? Or, are there no conclusions to be drawn from any of the numbers? That is just as relevant of a finding! Regardless, the fast shooters are still fast, and still winning. I enjoyed reading and thinking about it. Thanks, CPP, for putting it together.
  2. I'm yet to come across one who does want to wear the male uniforms. There is more complaining about the constant changing of the uniforms- be they dress, service, or working- then there is about what they might look like. Buying all of those new uniforms items costs a pretty penny. The servicewomen I know don't exactly find ANY uniform flattering. While male uniforms mimic civilian clothing that would be worn by a male, female uniforms don't. However, they are certainly better for females than the male uniforms are! It's also worth noting that all of the working uniforms (NWU, MARPAT, coveralls, etc) are gender-neutral. If you're here to work, put on your clothes, and do your job. If you want another shock, search some pictures of female Marine officers wearing the male dress blue jacket and cover...!
  3. I used to live in Pensacola about three years ago. I worked on base, and lived not 30 seconds outside the back gate referenced above as the required point of entry. There's a shopping center about a mile up the road, straight out the gate, with a Target, Walmart, and a couple of other stores where you could easily park your car inconspicuously and call an Uber. That being said, I don't know if you can call an Uber onto the base at the end of your visit, so a taxi might be a safer bet. You should definitely not, under any circumstances, attempt to bring the firearm aboard base. Inevitably you would encounter a gate guard named 'Murphy,' and he has a law he has to follow... I'll add to the above with another enthusiastic recommendation for making the museum trip happen somehow. There are a lot of great artifacts, tons of information, and plenty of retired aviators around as docents to answer questions and generally shoot the breeze. Best of luck with the trip!
