No not really, but best title I could think of. But per USPSA, "What the system was really designed and meant to show is how well a member can perform on a regular basis so that they can compete against shooters of their own relative skill level. It adds to the fun and excitement of practical shooting, the greatest shooting sport going!"

 

If that's the case, then how can a competitor shoot (7) Level 2 and above matches in a year, and averages a 62.827% finish and become a GM?

 

Oh and just to get it out of the way and save everyone time, I know I'm jealous, suck, need to practice more, ugly, fat, don't have a solution to the problem, am a keyboard bully, shoot IDPA, think airsoft is legit and voted for Obama....twice.

I don't think we should judge the whole system based on an anomaly.

We're starting the "Classification is Broken" thing again? It's not broken it's just able to be gamed. Problem is that the prize for winning is disappointment because you're swinging out of your weight class. Boxers can put bricks in their pockets and fight a heavier class but what's the point? It never ends well. If you ask me, it's a self correcting issue.

Do boxing trunks have pockets? I'd be afraid they would put some PCP in there and smoke it between rounds to get real pumped up.

Well, let's recap.

 

FL Open - 53rd place, 24 mikes, 2 NS

SC State - 26th place, 15th A, 3 mikes, 2 NS

Cowtown - 22nd place, 5th A, 3 mikes, 4 NS

GA St - 27th place, 8th M, 7 mikes

Prod Nats - 103rd place, about 50th M, 13 mikes, 3 NS

US IPSC - 50th place, 47% of winner

 

In the IPSC match alone she had 410 penalty points.  180 were on one stage that she zeroed but, even taking those away, she had 230 penalty points in ONE MATCH.   In just the other 5 matches alone she had 50 mikes and 11 NS.  In on 5 matches.

 

Yea, it's nothing but a road to disappointment.  But, congrats Candice!

Seriously? Don't be a dick. She did what it took within the rules to make GM. So good for her.

This is a legit question - even if you don't like it - and the numbers provided here seem to speak for themselves.  I can only say that I wouldn't want to be a GM posting those kinds of numbers, and losing to As and Bs on a regular basis will take its psychological toll over time.  I predict that the issue will resolve itself - one way or the other.

It's funny, when doodie first started (v1) paper GMs were the bane of it's existence. Everybody bitched about it, called people out etc. Now that it's a split tail that hugs steggers nuts it's off limits. Hipocrisy at its finest. She's not a bad shooter, she's not a bad person. But you're a bunch of cowards that can't keep your standards consistent.

So. This is all about having a lady classify higher because she practices classifiers to get better.
I hope she beats the pants off Jessie and then sends us the pics.
