In 1990 the USPSA VP said the purpose of USPSA was to support the amature shooting sports athlete.  Seemed like a novel idea.  What is the mission of USPSA today?

I like to rewatch election night 2016 coverage and I want to marry a conservative black girl who likes to shoot.

To make "shooting sports athletes" rich and famous.

54:00.  The gate.  How many fat fuckers shooting today could clear it without a crane or a hoyer lift?  And when was the last time you saw any sort of "holster test" at any USPSA match?

 

The good old days.  When men were men and the shooting sports were too hard for most of you whiny, obese, low testosterone bitches.

  1. Shooters in jeans
  2. Short shorts
  3. Chicks wearing white Reeboks
  4. Neon colors
  5. Over the ankle white gym socks
  6. Tight polos
  7. Iridescent sunglasses

Yep it was the 90s alright

Area 4 maybe 1994.  There was much whining.  50 yard standards too IIRC.  Similar levels of whining.  Slightly fewer matching shirt & pants Team-wear ensembles.

 

So you can see the "ooh, that's too hard for [ geezers | kiddos | noobs | USPSA to manage or police | ROs to count ] and people are whining, lets relax the rules" is not new, just that shooters really were way harder back in the day.

USPSA was the shit when there was only one division, awards were Lewis Class, when shooting 9mm was a mortal sin and the biggest technological advantage was the 8 round 45acp magazine. 

 

Along came the compensator, the red dot scope, the double stack magazine, the 10yr. 1m dollar contract from Springfield Armory for TGO and so on and so on and so on. 

 

Out went the Rhodesian Wall, holster tests, 175pf, Standard Exercises, 50yd shots....

 

 

The state of USPSA ?  

 

Fucked....


There's no stoppin the Cretins from Hoppin...

Seriously whoever says “back in my day” is a fucking has-been. You all act like 1984 was the pinnacle of human civilization. It sucked balls. No internet and fucking Cold War propaganda. It’s time for boomers to just fucking die and let us get on with fixing your fuck ups.

1984 was awesome.  Senior in HS, chasing and catching poontang without a fucking care in the world left me no time to pay attention to Cold War propaganda or to wonder WTF is an internet.
