    I've never even been on a range at the same time that a USPSA match was taking place. I'm only minimally familiar with their rules.

    The guy had the goal of making Master.

    I just don't see why stippling and grip tape are viewed differently as far as divisions are concerned. It's not like we're talking open versus production...

    When a shooter is dumping hundreds of dollars and copious windshield time to shoot a sanctioned match they shouldn't have to play divisional lottery. Save the intrinsic fun of competing for the...

    Now that my rant is out of the way, when is the jumping off date for this new division, and is there a definitive link for the rules? I don't see it on the IDPA web page or the IDPA forum.

    I don't drink beer. As such, I see no need for beer. Thus, there should be no companies that make and sell beer.
