why are over half of COMPETITORS d class
and rarely rise any higher? I STARTED in A class, when IPSC started, from my performance at the Columbia conference. :-) My first year of competition, 1976, I won 3 matches in Columbia, after riding in a car 190 miles one way, but I got cheated out of one of them, the night shoot, cause of equipment failures.
The next year, I beat the "high .45 firer" from the world shoot (Raul Walters) 7 out of 9 times on his home range, after making that 190 mile drive. Man, when i didn't win, that was a LONG drive home. Mostly, I rode with somebody from St louis, the 130 miles to Columbia, but several times, I drove it alone. I often drove alone, same year, the same distance, to shoot up by Chicago. yes, I DO gaf about being fast and accurate while under pressure. I never did think it made a flip what a civilian could or could not do with a pistol beyond 25 yds and now I know that it doesnt make a flip what such a man can or can't do with a pistol beyond 25 FEET. :-) If you're a merc, you'd better keep a silenced M4 on your assault sling. but normal people just have no need of such performance, so a pocket pistol and super speed, inside 10 ft, is where it's at, realistically.
Because of age and physical ability you would never make "A" Class these days. Besides IPSC is just a gun game these days, the principles that started the sport have been watered down so far because of 'Irrational People Squabbling Constantly' (IPSC), that it is only a game of the egotistical.
