It is crap like this wavier that makes me want to use my membership card for 20 yard bill drills.  This is the wavier that must be signed before competing in the Indoor Nationals this year.  Well I guess I do not want to perjurer myself, so I guess I will stay home and Doodied all over this POS.

  3. I have read and will abide by the rules in the current IDPA rulebook.

You just can't make this stuff up.

Well, they got the "PAINS AND PENALTIES' part right...,

... And NO cookies either

Question - Who defines 'appropriate' ? Is it like 'suitable for all day wear'?

This will be the last year for the match, I can't be believe they got the approval this year.
Publicly traded company that has had image issues related to the shooting sports center; felon using the range, suicides, stolen guns as well as multi management/ staff purges it is got to be wearing out the compliance and safety department.

Wow. We didn't even have language that strong on our criminal confession forms. Will they have a priest there to either absolve or excommunicate you?

This is a bunch of standard form bullshit that doesn't do much from a liability standpoint. But, it does make it easier to eject you from the proceedings without a refund.

This is an ambivalent statement. On one hand, it sounds like you're pissed and want to destroy your membership card. On the other hand, you're setting it in such a way that you know well in advance you are never going to hit it.
I personally think IDPA card should come with a bullet hole in it as a design feature to underline a real life nature of IDPA.

I've seen his Bill Drills - IDPA MA - the card is safe.

Same people who determine "suitable for everyday carry" and how many mag pouches you can wear I would think.

Wow....amazing attempt at protecting the brand.

 

There must be some considerable worry amongst the powers that be running this years match that the match will implode.

 

These tactics sound an awful lot like those used in North Korea....#9 in my favorite. I will be a GOOD and LOYAL Communist Party Member.

 

Good luck silencing the critics.


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

I think we should have this same rule here on Doodie because I don't like it when everyone uses swear words and talks mean to me.

Is there a time limit on the waiver or does it extend into perpetuity?

And what if you are a Buddhist? This life and all subsequent lives?

The ambiguity is disturbing.
