    I think I'm going to pass this year. That's a little far to drive every day.

    Yeap. And that rock sucks. I hate it for one day club match. No way my heels, ankles or knee can take that for 4 days

    Agreed! The surface there is challenging for sure.

    Well I guess I'll risk the surface, although I am certain that you guys are right. I'll see those of you that are shooting the match, presuming that I am accepted as staff.

    I'll see you all as I am working one of the stages.

    Shoot straight, move efficiently, & conserve ammo (who am I kidding), and stay hydrated.

    Just an early reminder.

    Well I was thinking about Limited, but I'm not sure there's enough heat to bother...
    Can the breakdown possibly be right?

    I might shoot revolver division, but I registered in single stack division. I would really like to shoot revolver, but with more than just overall being recognized for awards. The numbers are just not there for more yet, and I have to consider that several revolver participants will be using 8 shot revolvers. I currently use a 6 shot, and the major vs minor scoring does not really balance things.

    Only if you and four others minimum shoot the division, and it looks pretty grim with 0 registered currently.

    The GM numbers are wrong. Staff and sponsored spots are held with limited GM. So until those individuals update registration it will be wrong.

    Ahhhh..... I was wondering why that many GM Limited shooters were going to be at the match.

    I was actually wondering if that might be the case. Otherwise had to be something really wild going on to have more than the '17 Limited Nats did.

    I'll be there on Saturday with the camera. If you're shooting that day and want me to try to get a few pictures of you, let me know!

    What are the requirements participant wise for the match to count as a classifier for a division?

    typically 2-3 GMs must participate in the division and place in top of the results

    If you could get my good side, and with the slimming lens I would appreciate it. Don't expect any "cool" action shots as I will be working the match Saturday, and possibly not recovered from shooting Thursday then working the match Friday.

    I thought that Revolver Division was the redheaded stepchild of USPSA, but it looks like for at least the Carolina Classic that Limited 10 has taken that mantle as their own...

    Not many reasons to shoot L10 in a free state.

    How about moving from Production minor PF scoring to L10 major PF scoring with a .40 cal pistol without having to change your basic game plan of dealing with stages? o_O

    That requires a basic change in stage planning (which is not a tremendous hurdle I know), but switching from Production to L10 might be a bit simpler.

    Personally having shot Revolver Division for the majority of my time (and more recently Single Stack), I have found it more challenging to break down stages with 10, 8, or 6 rounds. It is impressive what shooters in Limited & Open Divisions can do on/to a stage, but I have never been drawn to those divisions. To each his own...

    The reason to shoot L10 in a "free state" is the same reason you shoot any other division, because you want to... ;)

    If you want the challenge of shooting a 10-rd division then shoot production. 40cal is allowed there.

    L10 is a waste of resources.
