For prizes they will be giving out hugs and fuzzy carebears. They might even have someone there to talk about your feelings. Don't you dare talk about sponge bob square pants, you will offend everyone.

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.

fuck off, Sally.  Grow some balls.

"5. I will not communicate with others in a threatening, harassing or abusive manner, and will not engage in the use of off-color remarks and jokes or profanity during the course of my participation in the match. I will not physically touch another person participating in an IDPA event without their consent unless it is necessary to address an immediate safety issue."

Does tackling count?


You can still tease people over their sexual orientation at least.

Certainly not originated by that administration - it's been in use by governments, political parties, religions, businesses, lawyers, etc. for a long time.

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.

 

They always lament that the company loses so much money by doing this event and shooters should be thankful for this amazing opportunity. An employee I know over there said not using the test bays for a few days is a minor inconvenience but it's definitely not a work halting event. Let's assume the two super squads and the SOs don't pay any money, and that the stuff they give to the SOs doesn't really cost Smith and Wesson anything. That's still 228 people paying 175 a pop for a grand total of 39,900. Some of that money is used for match specific supplies, awards, and the banquet. They have that weird guns-for-the-SOs voodoo and I don't know if that costs Smith anything, but there's still the fact that a lot of people buy Smith and Wesson shit while they're there. I imagine all those soft goods, knives, and whatever else they sell that isn't a gun in the People's Republic of Massachusets will make up for that deficit, so I think 40 grand is a pretty fair amount of money to make, especially when the staff is mostly volunteer.

 

I think this is different wording from last year. At the BUG match (which was a fuckin clusterfuck) there was a regional match director who is like, all pro IDPA and faps all over that shit and even he had enough. He bitched about rules not being followed to Joyce Wilson's face, but I guess she was too busy walking around and making stupid proto-typical female-slightly-involved-with-shooting-but-not-really comments.

 

"Isn't this a great match?"

"I shoot terribly, it helps to use that little thing on the front of the gun, you know, the front sight? That's so funny and original!"

 

For the lolz, is there overt evidence of people arbitrarily DQed from this particular match because of spite? Not that the overbearing threat of compliance isn't bad enough, I'm just curious.

I have shot the match multiple times.  Each time, the SW Pro Shop is completely bare.  There was almost nothing in it.  They had a few t-shirts in size small.  One would think that if you had 250+ people coming to your facility, you might stock up on some shit.  It's IDPA, so be sure to order a bunch of 4XL and up.

The "pro" shop isn't open to the public any more, the range is open only for employees so it's run by HR now. The venue is on its last breaths...mercifully.

It's a S&W match not a IDPA match. When one of the other companies can control 2 whole divisions in the sport then they can have their own little "invitational" match and run it however they want to!

 

 

 

I got even money that says a high ranking S&W person was on the tigger teams.
