    Who shoots USPSA and gives up the major advantage? I know WeShoot does, I've seen one local guy that is really good with a revolver do the same. I'm probably going to shoot my production legal Glock in Limited next week since a local club is having a 4 classifier. Shouldn't hurt me much, I usually would place about halfway down against the Limited guys when shooting production with 10rd mags. I guess better look out when I get the 23 rd stick in there. :cool:
    Give me a year our two and I'll be the only shooter in the Nation to be C carded in 5 divisions. 2 down, three to go...:banghead:

    Well, I give up making major on the simple fact that all that I have to shoot USPSA with is my USP9F. Definetly teaches me to hit that A-Zone, though.

    I do. Didn't used to. My job doesn't allow me to compete often enough to have any hope of getting good enough to win, so I shoot for fun. I didn't want to wear out, my beautiful guns and expensive mags so I shoot both IDPA and IPSC with a Ruger P89, 10 round mags and a Fobus Holster.

    If you are shooting Production Class, there is no benefit to shooting Major, as all guns in that class are scored Minor. Since I like shooting 9mm in general (it's my carry caliber), I shoot a G34 in Production, with good results (by my standards:D )

    I meant other than production. I do give a good head scratch to people shooting G21s and the like in prod. Every since I started shooting the sissy caliber my points actually got worse. With L10 I was speed limited as my stage points were usually within a couple of the stage winner. Now with the 9mm I decided it was time to get serious in the run and gun mode. Eventually I'll get the hits back, I found that even while dropping points left and right I am ending up higher than I would have with the L10 approach.

    I've only been shooting USPSA since they introduced Production, etc. I started shooting a Glock 34 9mm in Prod. and a G22 .40 in Lim10 and Lim with 18 rd. mags. Then, one day, just because it was easier to pack, I shot the G22 in all 3 classes and my production scores didn't suffer at all. At that point, I'm making Major even in Production.

    Then, I decide to start shooting a .38 Super in IDPA ESP. So, to get more practice with it, I shoot it a couple of times in USPSA Lim10 as Minor. And, I finish in the top third overall which is about right for my current level of ability.

    So, now I'm a totally screwed up shooter, shooting Major in Production, Minor in Limited 10, and Major in Limited. :rolleyes:

    I'll get settled one of these days. :)

    Trsnrtr,
    Just curious, where do you shoot IPSC at? I'm from Il (northern) too. I belong to NISA.

    HEARD MY NAME............

    When I started there was the 9x19 Witness; I shot Minor.

    I actually shoot guns I carry, so I decided early on to ignore the Major/Minor difference unless it was my 40 S&W.
    So far I've shot Minor with 9x19, 38 Special, 38 Super, 357 Magnum (yep), 40 S&W, and even the 45 ACP.
    Don't seem to be able to get decent accuracy with Minor loads in my 41 AE, 400 Cor-Bon, 41 and 44 Mags, or my 45 Colt.
    No extra credit for making 250+ PF either :scrutiny:



    To me IPSC is not golf..................but some might get discouraged when they check the scores on a stage and notice their time was third overall but their points rendered them 17th :banghead:

    Still, I'll continue to do the same, as my ego swells from surviving; know what I mean?


    Man I love shootin'

    Say Longbow--
    So you shoot with NISA, huh? I used to shoot there for YEARS, until I moved out to AZ. Did lot's of RO work, etc. Is Perry Wilson still a big force in the club? He's a great guy....

    Yep he is! As always been....he's a great guy. :)
    When did you move out? I started with NISA in 1994. We've probably met before.
    I bet you have a better time shooting IPSC in AZ, uh! I'de like to move out of Il. someday too! Maybe someplace that I can shoot IPSC outdoors all year, like.....AZ! :)
