Nicely done, sir. One day I hope to make President's Hundred... just once.

Idea: Have we ever considered a Postal Matches section here? A local board does 'em, where everybody downloads the same target, shoots the same course of fire and then posts scans of the results. For addressing temptation to cheat, I'd be tempted to suggest declaring range and rangemaster before the shoot, then having the RM sign a declaration that "the attached target was observed by me and/or my RSO's to be shot in accordance with the rules and reqs of this course of fire. [Name], Rangemaster of [Facility], [date]."

Cutting that time off is great.

I wonder if competitions like GSSF, Bullseye, Action Piston and Steel Challenge (SC) which use the fixed stage setups could create a super postal competition on Practicscore?
Would that be feasible?  Too many people?  Who would be authorized to upload scores?  I could see doing this once a month with SC by having the local match director upload the local match to a "super match" on Practiscore at the same time as the local match is uploaded.  Each club uploads one match for the month.  End of the month it's closed and everyone can go see how they stack up across the country.

Perhaps, but I have grave reservations about Practiscore myself--I have good reasons for keeping my name and exact location off the net as much as possible thanks to my ex's stalker, but they wanna blast that out for all the world to see and when I asked was greeted with a callously indifferent 'either deal with it or don't play.'

Practiscore:   I see a lot of pseudonyms these days.

Local steel match Sunday.  Shot PCCI, so I was NOT LAST place.  Basically didn't gain any time.  Trying to move PCCI from B to A classification.  It was oppressive.  Not so much the temperature but the humidity and the lack of breeze.  All my practice should have helped but I'll blame it on conditions.  Did win my division.  First out of one entry for PCCI.  Did beat 9 of the 13 CO shooters and the LTD, Production and Open shooters.  It is a local match so not a lot of Masters to compete against.

The Ruger PC-9 had been doubling, and tripling, like I had a bump stock.  I should keep a log book of changes, but I finally figured out I had replaced the hammer and trigger with ones from M-Carbo.  Could be the cut of the sear, or the placement of the pivot pins or the disconnector pin or the sear pin on the trigger.  I put the originals, at I think they were the originals, in.  Ran a 100 rounds indoors with no malfunction and ran the whole match (6 stages) without incident.  I've notice M-Carbo no longer offers the hammer and I think in one of my searches there was a complaint about it, but I can't find it now.   I think I'll put the MCarbo trigger back in along with the Volquartzen trigger spring and see if the problem reappears.

But so much for PCCI for now.  Got to put in time with Revo for IDPA Nationals next month.  Gosh I think it's been 3 or 4 months since I shot IDPA.  Got to remember how to do that.

Got to get back to revolver for the National IDPA next month.  I went and shot my local ICORE match with my 4".  They had a classifier called Almost Smoke and Hope.  Set up like S&H from steel challenge but with scoreable targets.  The center target was painted black, like hard cover, except for the 8", A, center ring.  While you could shoot them in any order I elected to do it like S&H.  1,2, 5,4,3.  We did three strings, Free Style, Strong Hand Only, & Weak Hand Only.  I threw one in the black on WHO and lost 5 seconds.  Otherwise I'd have won that stage and big time, see below.

AND - ICORE maintains a top 25 Leaderboard web page for all classifiers.  I'm in the top for CS-45 classifier and, wait get this:   I'm second place overall for classifer CS-029, right behind Josh Lentz.  A lot of luck was involved here.  But that give me a leg up into Master class.  Not bad for a "B" class shooter.  I'm encouraged to make "A" next month.

You are being way too modest.  That's a lot less luck and a lot more skill to accomplish that.

TRUTH BE KNOWN:

That 91% was just too high to believe.   I knew it was in my classifier list, but ICORE throws out the highest one, just because it might have been luck.   Been chasing Steel Challenge and hadn't thought about ICORE since last summer until this week.  So I did some checking.

Turns out that was a mistake in the upload of the times.  That time should really apply to another classifier that I shot on the same day.  I really only did about a 60% on this one, CS-29.

I've written ICORE explaining.  Don't know if they'll go to the trouble to correct it or not.  Others rightfully deserve the recognition.  I'd love to keep it as my high-throw-away score, else a 75% one will be thrown out as my now highest score and instead of having one "A" score I'd be back to all "B"s.

Oh, well it was nice to strut around for a day or two.
