Looking at the rig closer now it appears to be a Glock rig.

Anybody know what the 2018 schedule is or where I can find it?  Capitol city only goes out to May on their calendar.

I like the new link GDJ showed- T.Rex Arms,  great shooting tips from another level 8)  Lucas Botkin has good stuff for self training. A mix of (my view) Mason Lane,Jay Beal and Instructor Zero(Funker Tactical)
 Also why we are on the subject and before the You Tube (Google libertards) cancel there sites, check out- The Gun Collective,Regular Guy Training LLC , Garand Thumb and Black Rifle Coffee Company (while on the BRCC site check out there "Who We Are Videos")    ;)  8)  :)

In the past, nonmembers shooting a match could let the match director know they'd be joining USPSA shortly after the match, and the MD would put PEND instead of a member number on the iPad.  The new upload system no longer accommodates this as individuals can join USPSA on the phones and a member number is issued immediately.  If there is no cell service available at the range, I suppose an MD could hold off uploading the results, and give the guy a couple of hours to call in with the USPSA number.

When designing fixed time stage, I’ve wondered how to determine the correct time allowed.

I’ve come across this guideline - for GM, allow 1 second for the draw, 1 second for each roload, .12 seconds for splits, and .28 seconds for transitions.

This can of course be modified to accommodate shooter skills.

If Hampden adds some Steel Challenge matches this season I'll be there.  2 hours to Hampden or 2 hours to NH, doesn't matter to me.  I have life demands early in the season but after that I'm free.  I was really hoping Auburn was going to start SC.

Since I don't travel I'd like to see more SC locally. Hampden is set up for it, and Augusta could be if they have slots open in the shooting schedule (I have no knowledge). But I'd travel to Hampden in a heartbeat for more sanctioned SC shooting. Augusta practices SC in a very informal manner on Friday evenings.

Heck, I set up a .22 handgun and future .22 SBR for SC (it's arm braced at this time and not "legal" for SC, but once my tax stamp is returned I'll get the final parts and install them [I lusted after a .22 SBR anyway] ). I just won't travel for hours to shoot competition with it. I'm old and decrepit and by the time I get there I'll forgot why I wanted to get there. :-)

I think it was Falmouth that a friend and I went to in order to shoot SC, but they aren't sanctioned matches. When they are sanctioned I'm all in down there, but they're still fun at this time and one doesn't lose centerfire brass since they have tarps down to catch it. Good idea on the inexpensive tarps for those folks shooting centerfire (hint). The tarp idea works fine for SC since there is no significant moving and it allows one to cut costs. It also allows the club to collect the rimfire brass to sell to support other shooting programs or the club.

SC is also a great way to get additional trigger time since additional guns only cost $5 to shoot. So shoot handgun and a long gun on the same day. It's a no brainer. No significant "gear" needed (just mags, and anyone already shooting Action Pistol already has most, if not all, of what they need) and then shoot a bunch more. I don't know if there is a rule stating that one can't shoot 3 or more guns for $5 each additional entry. (Is there?)
