I have a USP Tactical 9mm that I would like to shoot in production.
The gun is on the list, followed by what appears to be the caveat that only DAO models are allowed followed by a "DSO DA/SA models only." sentence which seems to be attached to nothing in particular.
My questions are:
1. Is a variant 1 DA/SA USP Tactical 9mm allowed in production class?
2. If not what is the floating DA/SA sentence referring to?
3. If this model is not allowed in production, why?
4. What is the proper procedure for receiving clarification of such rules in USPSA?
I get that as a new shooter I am going to get smashed either way and could just stick with a Glock 19... still, I prefer to shoot the DA/SA.
I am also aware that I don't currently own a gun that is popular in USPSA.
