This doesnt follow from anything I said.
If a range hosts a uspsa club and the uspsa club sets up a match then nobody is forcing the range to do shit. The range is hosting a uspsa event and uspsa events are open to uspsa members.
Occasinally fucksticks get banned and ranges gonna range and all that. I get it.
What I am pointing out is this is 2 way street. Holding a uspsa match comes with certain strings. If people dont like strings being attached then maybe they dont need to affiliate with uspsa and agree to them.
Ranges occasionally pull bullshit and sometiemes you need to get rid of people from a match. Maybe this was one of those times and maybe not. I dont know.
Ok. Agreed. Sometimes there are three entities. My club as an example, has the big club that owns and governs the property, the pistol division that has access to part of the property and hosts events for 6-7 sports, and the USPSA matches which are run by an even smaller group. If the big club bans a member, or puts in place some stupid rule, them the only way for those who want USPSA to have a place to host it have to comply. The big club could get rid of USPSA, or one guy. I'll miss that one guy, but I would miss my monthly match more. Some clubs don't even own their property, and that gets even more tricky. Some USPSA matches are hosted at public indoor range busienesses, so add the business owner to the list. There should be no fluid part of USPSA rules. A property owner, business owner, or big club could usually care less about USPSA. We need them more than they need us.
