    I dont get the reason for the abrupt change. The match had great turnouts and was well run by Matthew and Cy. What prompted this and how does this benefit the match participants?

    Very confused why the rules changed to disqualify so many shooters. I saw many people, including myself, using suppressors as that's how we'd actually run our gun. Also being able to run pistols was nice for a lot of people waiting for a stamp to be approved or waiting to afford it as it's not a cheap process. Every USPSA type match I've participated in (rifle and pistol) tend to cater to those who have thousands of dollars in gear rather than gear they'd actually carry CCW or have in their home. Last I check USPSA had the work "PRACTICAL" in the title, and most people run it to be number 1 and not to use practical gear.

    So the the thread for this match that specifically mentioned the new USPSA status is closed, so is this the active thread?

    The only thing that pissed me off about the old matches was getting the zoot shooters sloppy seconds and having to use lathe that was more hole and splinter than wood. Kudos to Matt and others for putting matches on in such austere conditions.

    On the suppressor and timer issues, that is a problem. It seems that there could be some hardware solution to it- and I'd think the suppressor companies would help overcome it to get better adoption of their gear.

    I liked the laid back nature of the matches. Maybe I'll shoot the new matches, maybe I won't. I really need to figure out what makes sense for my and The Boy's schedule.

    Most newer shot timers can be adjust in sensitivity to pickup suppressors.

    Yup see the thread with dissent is locked now.

    Actions have consequences - wonder if those who took certain actions regarding this match considered the consequences of their actions.

    So is the good version of this match going to start up again? I don't see anything for CRC other than this one.

    So what's going on with this match? Is it still lame/unpopular/unimaginative/wet blanket/unfun/anal-retentive/nitpicky/messianic complex/imposing/scheming/socially-inept-and-awkward rules, or are we back to cool match rules? I would strongly prefer rules that are clear, flexible, and practical.

    Internet is confused, too: https://www.reddit.com/r/COGuns/comm...do_rifle_club/
    The block guy says there's some other matches, but I'd rather shoot a nonshitty match at CRC.

    May match (new style) was canceled. Is there another club that wants to host this as a monthly event and has the facilities to do so? Maybe we can do it as trial match somewhere else?

    Is Owl Canyon set up for something like this?

    Boulder is, but I don't know anyone there to ask.

    A little burst tells me we may see something develop at Ben Lomand
