There is no contract for this event. A nationals date is only valid if we have a contract. We are still in discussions with this and other venues, and hope to reach an agreement soon. I was informed last week that PASA is holding these dates in anticipation of an agreement,and adding them to their calendar. I have asked that the announcement be modified using the word "pending".

Can we move the revolver match to a location that is run by people that actually shoot revolvers?

There's a couple of us that are still young enough to run.

Are the stages still going to be drawn up by an old C-class single stack shooter who only owns three 8-round magazines?

Since someone has your attention on revolvers Mr. Foley, and thank god you actually respond. Any chance for getting rid of this 8 round minor bullshit, or fixing the 8 rounds from a single position to actually, you know, maybe at least make it look like it can be a level playing field?

You shot 800 points, but could only carry 20 points back to the wagon.

It is a level playing field between revolver shooters. If you want to level the overall level playing field nut up and buy an open gun.

Level with what?  Are you trying to say that Rev6-Major and Rev8-Minor are not equitable to each other because of 8 round arrays, or that because one step apart makes 2 positions and you can have as much as you want available giving revolver a standing reload making Revolver not competitive against any other division?

i shot a match yesterday at a range literally right next to the oregon trail, and there was indeed a revolver dude on our squad.

I shot a match Saturday that was actually IN oregon, not just on the way to it, and we had one revolver on our squad, plus a rattle-canned purple Open Glock. Not sure what all that means but it was fun.

Tombstone AZ has a revolver match every Saturday at noon. They did DQ a guy last year for using live ammo.

Yellow Fever or Scarlet Fever were the rage killers, I thought.
I won an IDPA match once. It was neat.

Why does it always have to come down to race?

Sorry once again my ability to use the written word has failed to properly communicate what I was trying to get across. Rev6 Major vs Rev8 Minor are not, and will never be equitable with 8 round arrays. Hell even ICORE, which is supposed to be 6 round neutral stages has made a Limited 6 division.
