There is a huge USPSA cheating scandal that is just coming to light.  I'm surprised no one has said anything about it online yet (at least not that I have seen).

 

Others who know more (or less) about this should feel free to post information in this thread.  Selfishly, this will help me so I don't have to search this and other sites for information.

 

It directly involves shooters and matches in the mid-Atlantic part of the United States [edited to remove the word "area" because of its USPSA connotations].  So check with people you know there if you haven't heard about this.  It indirectly affects everyone in USPSA (and possibly other individually timed shooting sports) because it will likely change the way things are done going forward.  

 

It will be interesting to see how the USPSA Board of Directors responds to the scandal.

 

You heard it here at Doodie Project first.  [<--- Of course, I will remove this comment if this news has been posted elsewhere  .  .  . ]

*  Edited again to add:  Here is a direct link to that post #112:

"...huge USPSA cheating scandal"

 

What's your definition of "huge?"  Some shooters shooting a classifier 3 or 4 times to improve their score?

Exactly how would one cheat in this sport?  It would seem that it could only be done with RO assistance or by manipulating data on the back end.  
That begs the next question... why?  For a World Shoot slot?  Sponsors pay more money based on performance?  Gotta be a motive if this is truly happening.

Actually what I heard is that some guy in Virginia is selling Overlays where the outlines are a couple of millimeters bigger than they should be.   That way you keep one in your pocket and on any close call you ask for the overlay you just hand the RO your "special one".  Most RO's are too lazy to take the one in their own pocket out so they'll take the offered up overlay and Presto!  Borderline call now ruled in your favor.

My best friend's sister's boyfriend's brother's girlfriend heard from this guy who knows this kid who's going with the girl who saw MFCEO pass out at 31 Flavors last night. I guess it's pretty serious.

 

Details or GTFO. Or EABOD since this is Doodie.

That's right, and the worse thing isn't that some shooters got their scores bettered..  It's that other shooters got their scores worsened.  I guarantee some people reading this have had their scores changed without them realizing it.  Oh, and it's been going on for years.

 

 

"Huge scandal" that nobody knows about...

 

. . . yet.

I will say this much...  I have heard about it.  Don't have any juicy info, just heard it being talked about a week or more ago.

Matches in Virginia are not in the mid-atlantic section so fuck you for your initial post.  Get your shit right.

If you know more spill it.  If you don't, then this doesn't qualify as much more useful than schoolyard gossip.
