  1. Sweet! My chances of losing the gunfighter category gracefully just went up by 5 places.
  2. @capt. dealing lead I tried to send you a PM, but got a message that you can't receive any messages. Perhaps your inbox is full.
  3. How can you tell from these pictures?
  4. @Bona Fide my rifle is a 24", but has been short stroked and lightened a bit. Next time we shoot together, run a few stages with mine for a fair comparison.
  5. It's less than convenient, but should be possible by exporting registration as a CSV file, editing that file (probably in excel), then saving the edited file as a CSV and importing it to your practiscore device. You would have to figure out how to delete all shooters before importing the edited file. https://community.practiscore.com/t/importing-shooter-registration-data-into-practiscore-app/249
  6. I can see both sides of this coin. One last pitch for the change. The fact that youth shooters are eligible for open age categories is widely misunderstood. As a result, parents prevent or discourage children from trying all the various options. This change would eliminate that barrier... at least for those in the 14-17 age range.
  7. So they can learn all the things, and try all the things. The more enticing, and interesting we can keep this sport for the kids, the longer they will continue with this sport.
  8. If one of the three matches has more stages would you drop the slowest extra stages, or use average stage time instead?
  9. If my memory serves, in other sports I've been involved with using cumulative rank scoring, you earned a point for each person that finished behind you. That's similar to what @Diamond Jakeis asking about. Shooters that attend more than 3 matches would drop their lowest scores (least points earned in single matches). A tie would still be possible, but less likely. Edited to add: This is a terrible idea. We should not do this.
  10. I don't recall Jedi Outlaw being one of the categories
  11. It's already working! Us too. We're planning on three, and now considering a 4th.
  12. At least two. We can't commit Firstshot this far in advance.
  13. At least three of those are already on our calendar.
  14. For those of us who can't realistically attend that many big matches, there would be no additional incentive to stretch our resources and go to an extra match. How about 4 out of 6? If you attend more than 4, you get to use your 4 best times.
  15. If the stage writer gives us a single instruction that would require 10 shots, we don't need the word "then" to define that as a single 10 shot string do we? Example: Put 10 rounds on 2 targets Perform a Lawrence Welk sweep (4 targets in description) Or "engage the pistol targets with 2 rounds each" (when there are 5 pistol targets) I apologize for being stubborn, or maybe just dense, but the logic for being able to create multiple smaller shooting strings flys in the face of the way we actually understand and shoot stages. A common occurrence might be when shotgun is shot from two locations with a rifle shooting location in the middle. Invariably, the question will be asked "can we split the shotgun?". According to this thread, there is no need for that question.
  16. I'm still hung up on the number of shots in a shooting string. When the stage instructions tell us what to do with each gun, that would seem to me to be defining a required shooting string. If that's not the case I foresee two things for the near future. 1. To shoot a stage more efficiently, I will split a string that requires movement. 2. The spotters will get into arguments about whether or not I can do that.
  17. So, you are saying that any time the stage instructions say rifle not last, it is ok to split any, or all, shooting strings, so long as the last shot fired is from a pistol or shotgun? That there is no obligation to complete one sequence before starting the next? The rules seem clear that once you fire the next type of gun the shooting string is over. Even in a "rifle not last" stage the number of shots in each string are defined. Changing a 10 shot string into an 8 shot string, and a separate 2 shot string is not following stage directions.
  18. Pistol string was complete with 2 misses/unfired rounds the moment the first rifle shot went down range. SHB p 14 Revolvers are returned to leather (re-holstered in a safe condition) at the conclusion of the shooting string, unless the stage description specifically directs otherwise (e.g., “move to the next position and set gun on table or prop”). A shooting string is defined as shots from one type of firearm prior to the next type of firearm engaged. Wouldn't this be a P for returning to shoot 2 more shots after completing the pistol string? Essentially, shooting the stage out of order? SHB p21 under procedural penalties -Engaging the stage in the wrong order.
  19. I don't know the history, but from the current SHB, p38 "Automatic ejectors are allowed on single shot break action, lever, and pump action shotguns ONLY. Side-by-side shotguns may not use automatic ejectors"
