Major is dumb.


Fucking A right. There are plenty of relics from 1976 that I like, but they can keep the Major scoring.

We just need to do away with everything except revo and SS. Make it like the good old days.

 

Leather holsters, trucker hats, bell bottoms, mullets.

 

Hell yeah.

Shoot major all you want.  Giving a clear advantage to Major over Minor is dumb.

Leave major divisions alone. We gave you gals a division to shoot your cheap garbage guns. Hell, we even share our hider division when you want to build self esteem.

Lim Major can be left alone, it is Lim Minor that is disadvantaged.

While we are changing things lets drop the major PF down to say that the bullet only has to fully penetrate a cardboard target. Brilliant!! No chrono stage, actually every stage would be it's own chrono.  If we did away with the scoring zones completely, just made the entire target the A zone, it would further eliminate the privilege some calibers unfairly enjoy.

Does your hastily constructed straw man have a point other than "the current system is perfect, let's not discuss much less change anything."?

Ooh man I would LOVE to go back to the old power factor. Leave Open as it is so those weenies don't blow their guns up, but the old power factors for Limited and Single Stack would be great. Of course since they fucked it up allowing additional rounds in minor it wouldn't work. Same for Revolver, fucked it up. "Boo hoo, I don't like to reload. Boo hoo, my gun kicks too much. Boo hoo, my gun keeps blowing up in my face". Sissies.

The old power factor sounds cool, I just think these are even less cool to wear than go-fast jerseys covered in faux sponsor logos:

Seems like major power factor should be at least as high as 230 grain ball ammo in 45.  190-195 or so.

Major should enjoy the same benefits in uspsa as it does in the streets: tiny bit bigger hole so it's easier to touch the scoring line, better ability to knock down irrelevant stuff like precariously balanced steel targets, and a little better ability to shoot through barriers. Not 33-50% extra points when you didn't shoot someone in the right place.

All joking aside, when I look at the lineup of divisions we have, places for minor to play stand out as the biggest shortcoming.

 

9mm is cheaper to shoot, yet Production is it's only real home, so I guess I'm in the minority of wanting to shoot 9mm.

 

I think Limited minor would be cool as a stand-alone division, but I suppose not at the expense of adding yet more divisions to an over-crowded field.

You mean like on purpose?


I asked and was given the impression that it was by choice. I think a lot of 3gunners shot the NC State match. I think about 10 shooters shot minor which kind of surprised me when I was looking at the results.

ETA: I see that some when minor due to chrono issues.
Not to be confused with ZachJ

So pussy minor. No heads. IDPA scoring. 

 

 

Next there will be the Big Dawg Beav rule where you have to shoot a faggy red XD and either become morbidly obese or wear a fat suit. 

 

 

WTF are you pussies trying to do to this game??????

I think it makes more sense as a stand-alone than L10 does...and would probably get a lot more participation.

So dump Lim10 and split out Lim Minor.  I don't see that having Lim Major and Lim Minor combined is meaningful.

If Production was 15 rounds like it should have been, Limited minor would be unnecessary.

There it is. If L Minor became a thing how many would just shoot their Production pistols with fully loads mags? All of them shooting CZ's and Tanfos for sure.

I don't see much advantage with 15 rounds on 8 shot arrays.
