Crap, now I gotta be a (1) gamer, (2) rules lawyer and (3) keep my IPDA AC and USPSA AD's cell phone #'s on speed dial?

All I wanted to do was dry fire and go to the range to practice as time permits.

Is that too much to ask?

Since the IDPA AC made the bad judgement call, it IS on IDPA.  The AC is the IDPA rep for his area.    He has a dual role of representing his members to IDPA as well as representing IDPA down.  Bad call by an individual?  Certainly.  That shit happens.  Now let's see what IDPA does.  Do the distance themselves from it or do the own it and quickly take action?  Wanna take bets?

 

I will not go fuck myself.  I am a fat middle aged guy.  I have standards.

No, it's about a shitty AC with no balls.   Good call on not fucking fat guys.

That's sounding up there like Mickey Fowlers barricade score at the 1999 Bianchi Cup.

Retards:  IDPA does a lot of fucked up shit, but this has nothing to do with IDPA, it was just a bad judgement call.  

 

LOL

 

Everrrrybody asks for a reshoot.  How did he get away with getting one, when he completely skipped a target?  IDPA has a history of allowing "judgement calls".  It is in the DNA.

I think USPSA should offer Morgan Allen asylum with a L membership. I have a friend at the match and it was clear Gordon used his influence to gain an advantage. Many shooters ran past this target hidden behind a window on stage 6, and took it like a man.

Gordon sounds like a pitcher, not a catcher.

I am still trying to figure out why the MD decided to be so gutless that he couldn't make a decision on his own.

Or should roll over to the AC. WTF? It's the MD's match - take the time required and make a decision per the rules.

And no, I don't give enough of a carp to go look it up.

Such hand wringing and debate...

He fucked up - no reshoot.

What's next for IDPA Carolina?
Reshoots for shooting at a target and missing?
Time off your score because it's hot (cold, raining, sunny, overcast... ) ?

Fuck actually shooting the stage. Here's your first place trophy. Everyone gets one. You don't even have to show up. Because you are a special IDPA snowflake.

so
much
fail

So what's these guys' USPSA numbers so I can see if they are actually any good at shooting.....

 

Dunno but a local B-class dude used to love whomping on Gordon Carrell in USPSA matches.

What does that have to do with why the MD didn't make the call and had to call the AC?

I'm guessing he didn't like some joker overruling him either.

Maybe but only maybe. Besides I know I can out shoot him.

And at least when I have been an MD I made and ENFORCED my own decisions.

10.3.9 Special Snowflake Provision.  If the SO is not busy consuming smaller competitors with a side of cookies, all non-obvious targets shall be individually called to the attention of any Special Snowflake competitors that may be present.  In the even that this is not completed to the satisfaction of the Special Snowflake and FTE/Miss penalties are incurred, then the Special Snowflake(s) may contact their AC directly and request that the AC smite with righteous fury the wholly unreasonable calls of the Primary SO and MD.

Oh Frank did rule against Gordon. That's when the Area Coordinator dialing by Gordon occurred. Put it this way, he's on the Tiger Team and has a relationship with him. #letsgetogether
