QUIT CHANGING THE RULES!!!!

Postby TEX » Sat Nov 04, 2017 9:24 pm

Anyone know if the Springfield Armory ED4 Contour of the Springfield XD will fit into the CCP box. Online measurements indicate they are both 1/8 inch too tall - bur yet Bill Wilson double stack 9mm is just right (can you say bull hockey - the fix is in). I think people are leaving IDPA because they get tired of buying a gun for a particular division and then having it bounced out of that division because of changes in the rules. USPSA is starting to look better all the time. Is the right person running IDPA? Does that person even shoot any more.

I left IDPA and having much more fun shooting protection type matches, some with 2nd gun, never go back, 1 IPSC match opened my eyes to the dumb rules. To me I see more leaving than new shooters joining.

If you are talking about the EDC X9 from Wilson, it in fact does NOT fit the CCP box.

The reload rules and others gun models are what I saw most negatives about, even our club dropped it, IDPA was fun for along time I admit just a game and a big money maker for Mr Wilson. I do not ever plan on rejoining, one thing for sure when I leave the house today I sure will not down load to 10! I made a mistake here being a very special day Dad's Swenson 1911 gets to go today and G32 gets a rest. His old Seventree's holster and all will make the trip today. I doubt many here ever heard of A Swenson guns.

I enjoy IDPA, USPSA, and to a lesser extent Steel Challenge. They are all games, and have slightly different focuses. The SSP 10+ is the same as Production/Limited 10 in USPSA, and takes that away as a competitive variable.

I like the 2017 rules overall (even becoming an SO). They incorporate USPSA items that people liked (fault lines and loads in the open/on move) while retaining the IDPA focus (more weight on accuracy, rules keeping the athletic side of it to a moderate level), so I enjoy it. USPSA keeps its run and gun focus. Both are different and fun. :tiphat:
