And if your stage designers are so smart why are all stages run from positition to postision and shot 8 rounds While IPSC stages are fluid and present options for shooting on the move?
I don't know how much you have shot in the US, but i have found stages like you describe to be pretty rare anymore. They are more common for new stage designers at local matches. I have done at 8-8-8-8 stage once or twice, but even then I make sure that some of the targets are available from multiple positions.
fwiw, i don't hate all things euro like most decent americans. I lived in germany for 6 years and finland for 4 months, and I think euros are very nice people considering they are mostly millennial fags. In general tho, I think USPSA rules are way more better than ipsc rules, which is no surprise since america kicks europe's ass in every respect when it comes to gun laws.
