    I was wondering if someone could help me figure this out. I want to use a 1911 .45 for IPSC and would be using 10 round mags. Would that put me in Limited 10? If not, what class? Would I be competing with those race guns with my 1911? I have a 9mm that I could use, but I shoot better with the 1911. I tried to access the USPSA website but could not get it to load.

    You would be in LTD 10 with a 1911 and 10 round mags. The USPSA rules are written to allow 10 round single stack pistols. IPSC doesn't have a LTD 10 class. Race guns shoot in Open. You could still find yourself shooting against $3000 customs but they will be built to the same rules as a stock 1911.

    Depending on what 9mm you have you could shoot it in Production (loading only 10), Limited loading standard mags to the limit of a mag length of 140mm (means a + 2-5 for rounds held) or in Limited 10 again. The down side to 9mm outside of the Production class is you are scored as "minor," meaning a less than perfect shot will gather you an increased penalty.
