Here's an interesting thing that I found:
This is an email from the Phillipine RD and a follow-on email from Vince Pinto sent to Mike and Phil in December of 2015. In it, Vince lays out IPSC's objection, which is the root of all of this sanction talk and possible split.
"... USPSA acceptance of foreign clubs (emphasis in original) creates an unhappy and unhealthy situation whereby two organizations (USPSA and the IPSC affiliate), are offering virtually identical practical shooting disciplines in the same foreign country."
So, why is it in the interest of USPSA to protect an IPSC affiliate from competition when not doing so advances the goals laid out in the USPSA mission statement?
