Or are you just excited to shoot the stage? With the ammo shortage, I am sure everyone is getting more dry fire time, and many people use laser trainers or snap caps. But what if this happens at the match: “You are the RO and you give the competitor the ‘Make Ready’ command.

You see a laser trainer cartridge in the chamber. What is your call as the RO?”[Read more…] about Is that a laser trainer in your chamber?

For this Question of the Month we posed a scoring question: The RO watches the shooter engage the target in the picture and sees the first shot travel through the mesh wall on the left, and the subsequent two shots clear the wall edge. The RO did not see where the first shot hit the target, nor is there evidence on the target to determine which shot went through the mesh. The target has three holes: one Alpha and two Charlie. How do you score the target?[Read more…] about Which hit was it?
USPSA uses an online Form C for major matches. Any Level II or higher match needs to have a Form C submitted and submit the stage designs for approval.

USPSA is hosting a different kind of multigun match this year instead of the usual shotgun, rifle, and pistol match. In early June, the first ever USPSA 2-Gun PCC/Pistol Nationals will be held at CMP Marksmanship Park in Talladega, AL (registration opens March 1). Have you never shot a multigun match before, but do shoot PCC and handgun division in USPSA Competition matches? Then you should come out and join us! Can’t make it to Alabama? Then why not set up a 2-gun match at your home club?[Read more…] about Come try something new
“A competitor holsters their loaded single action pistol with the safety off, but flicks the safety on before removing their hand from the pistol. What is your call?” I won’t lie. The results of this Question of the Month have us a bit stunned. We didn’t think that this question would have results like this:[Read more…] about Is that safety on?
