A better way to determine the winner than total time


Cheyenne Ranger, 48747L

Recommended Posts

We have seen that Total Time is now the official method of SASS...

but is it the best

 

 

I propose we do it by height, you know, how tall everyone is

 

line the posse up with boots and hats on and the tallest shooter gets 1 point, the next 2 and so on down the line

 

this will allow the shortest to have a large number which helps them in the self-worth department 

 

then just put all the posse numbers together and you'll have it...course you'll have several number 1's and 2's (depending on number of posses) but that can be decided on boot size

:P

No, No, No. What you need to do is award bonus points for the work a posse member does. -5 seconds for picking up brass, --4 for being T.O., -3 for spotting, +10 for being the 5th person in line at the loading table.;)

Is the -5 per stage or overall? Can you do all three for the trifecta? You forgot the target reset folks also.

 

I'm going to have to get me a bunch of cheap pickers and sell them at a "reasonable" price at the larger matches.

I think you got T.O. and brass picker backwards. ;)

Shooting black sometimes works to your advantage and sometimes it works against you.  Even though "If you THINK it is a miss, it is a HIT" is told again and again to the spotters, some spotters insist that you had a miss when really it was a hit.  Only way to prove otherwise is if you are the first shooter on freshly painted targets and you count the dings.

 

Then again some spotters do give you the benefit of the doubt and give you a hit when it really was a miss.

And sometimes on freshly painted targets a number 8 (two bullets touching one on top of the other ) still gets you call of one miss .... I even took a photo that clearly shows the two bullets just touching one above the other ,,,, 3 spotters all called it as only one hit on that target .... The Match director up-held the call ,,, this at a Provincial /State shoot ...

 

This was years ago ,,,, but it still sticks in my craw when I think of it ...

The old "bug and the winshield" corollary.

What is this you speak of???? Everybody knows it should be based on BIGGEST HAT:lol:

Tie breakers would be;

Felt / straw 

Crown / brim style

hat band

color

manufacturer

I think "Grin Factor" should be part of it. A shooter walks away from the stage grinning, they get -5 seconds. Cause everyone else to be grinning for whatever reason during their time at the line, they get an additional -5 seconds...:D

 

Dang, Stirrup Trouble, great minds think alike and at the same time too.! :lol:

The biggest laugh I ever got was shooting a stage where shotgun was last. Went to my belt and had no shells. Placed my pistols on the prop table yelled be right back and ran to my cart and grabbed a handfull of shells. Ran back to the firing line holsterd my pistols and finished the stage.

 

Although it is now ilegal,  at the time it was OK. Had just read a "what's the call" where someone else had done the same thing. I still get ribbed for doing that but it was worth it for all the looks on everyone's faces at the time.

That reminds me of the time, many years ago, during a Plainsman side match when I left my pistols on the LT. I ran downrange to shoot the RP targets with my pistols and didn't have them. So I ran back uprange to the LT, holstered them and ran back :o

 

The topper was Mike Bastain got it all on film. :lol:

 

After all that, I wasn't even last.

I think anyone who wears chaps in 80+ degree weather should get at least a 10 second bonus.

:lol: I did something similar. I was up next to fire. I was the last shooter on the stage. Had been the brass picker and just didn't realize the posse was almost done. I Somehow managed to load my revolvers but in the course of loading there was a "Down range" call. It took a while to clear. In the meantime while we were backed away from the table I was jaw jackin' and when things were clear it was my turn to shoot. Fired 10 pistol, grabbed rifle slammed a virtual rounnd home and "click"...again "click". Someone yelled "His rifle rounds are still at the loading bench". So I commenced to loading the rifle from my belt. Took forever. I didn't think about going to get the ammo, but I learned a big lesson that day:

1. PAY ATTENTION WHEN YOUR LOADING AT THE TABLE.

2. Don't leave cartridges in your belt so long they get stuck...

3. Get a belt pouch, forget the bullet loops. 

 

I was fairly new New at the time.
