From the other thread.....

Quoting MDorBust (Reply 210):
I really hope you put some limits on what can be used on the plate contest... Least an M1A or Ruger no.1 wander over to the plates

They won't allow rifles at the plate range. Cheater! It might also be good to limit pistol magazines to something under thirty rounds too.

Quoting Go3Team (Reply 211):
Someone would end up rich from my contributions.

No shit, me too. The ones you really have to watch out for are Miamiair and Mrs. Miamiair and Ilikeyyc. DL021 is a dark-horse in this race because he didn't make it over to the plate range last year, but he talked a good game in the last thread. ANC has a hard time shooting one-handed while he's using the other to put his teeth back in or holding his cane or adjusting his bifocals or opening his bottle of Geritol or.......well, you understand.

If I recall correctly, there wasn't that much grass around the plate range.  Wink If there is, maybe he can make a couple of bucks that way since the plates aren't going make much for him.

That's where having a Glock 17 with the extended magazine comes in handy...19+1.

Laugh it up you two . . . .


Of course it's preferable to have a tank . . . . overwhelming firepower atn any assault.

Seriously, the plate range sound like fun. I missed that last year . . .

I recommend that we only allow "carry" weapons in the contest. That way we keep race guns out.

That sounds fair, but John Blue had a 9mm 1911 pistol he set up specifically for plates last year so we don't want to step on his toes.

Anyway, yes I agree that we should draw the line at something like only those guns that would be IDPA legal. ISPC stuff would be beyond the scope of what most here would have, or at least willing to take to BHM unless they specifically wanted to clean-up in this deal.

We talking about knocking the plates down or shooting at the plates for hits?

For the falling plates it will be 10mm or .45.

If it plates for hits against time. it'll be the 9mm.

Knocking them down. (As you know) 9 will do it, you just have to hit them in the top 1/4 or 1/2. It's the gun that we're talking about. If I took a comp'ed Sig X-five or a tricked-out long-slide 1911 with a comp and mag well if wouldn't be fair to somebody with a G26.

"talked a good game"...hmmmm.... well, I did knock over the plates on the 40 yd range every time Pepper set them up, but I was having a good day. But, if we're talking about shooting for pride and honor...I'll participate. I hope no one is expecting to play for too much money.......a little maybe......I nominate Pepper to hold the cash...he ain't gonna win any, so he at least oughta get to hold it a while......  Wink

Quoting Queso (Reply 1):

That's simple....make it a timed deal for a specific number of rounds per mag. 5 rounds per magazine, and everyone reloads equally. Or I don't mind having full mags but everyone gets an equal number of rounds.

Quoting MDorBust (Reply 6):

I don't really care if someone brings their race gun...as long as it fits in an inside the pants holster and they have to draw just like everyone else.

Quoting Miamiair (Reply 10):

Well, knocking down what you shoot at seems like its the most important thing......

Either one will work. I think we should do either 7 rounds per magazine or six if someone want to try with a wheel gun.

No, I know you wouldn't do that. I don't think anybody who was there last year would (could?) talk shit. Unless Swatpamike wanted to talk about how his bad-ass bayonet technique.

I agree. ANC and I discussed this before the meet last year, but it never became an issue because we never had our friendly "shoot-out".

Guys,

Shift me down to the maybe column. The wife's bitching about the money this year, as I already have two golf trips scheduled, and her and I are going on our anniversary trip next month. It's an expensive year to say the least. I'm hoping to sooth her fears, and still make it. If so, I'll be driving down from here, and can provide help with travel for anyone if necessary. I'll know more as we get closer to the date.
