    Looks like we are now relitigating the firing of Kim Williams, the former USPSA Executive Director (back when we had one). At the time there was some controversy about potential embezzlement -...

    Sorry to hear that, that sucks. What I will say is that "problem children" at matches make as much trouble as people allow them to. If someone wants to complain about stage design in a way that holds...

    I think it's incredibly easy to avoid USPSA drama if you don't listen to podcasts and just shoot matches. Rarely if ever have I heard any such complaining like xxxx is a sandbagger, yyyy is a...

    I agree he has a way of phrasing that tends to come across as strongly opinionated. I think he is one of those people I mentioned who started out shooting controlled all the time and does not have...

    Former Delta.

    I think to the question of practice I think for better or for worse many people do treat self defense / tactics as their hobby and prioritization needs to happen. But getting really...

    I think Ben was being facetious when he made that post - he posted that right after Matt posted a different video of himself shooting MXAD with this description:

    I will say that many organizations should be more open to feedback from accountants. HOA in my area lost over a million dollars to an embezzlement because the auditor they hired failed to do a basic...

    I agree but there's a question of degree. In extreme cases it's ugly to everyone. In mild cases nobody cares. Hard to argue from first principles exactly where the line is so the only way forward is...

    The "my AD is good" argument doesn't necessarily mean the whole board is good nor does it even mean that 1 AD can stop the tide when the rest of the board wishes to do something dumb. Not sure who...

    5" gun with the butler cut slide and rail is probably my favorite looking style of 2011, but it may be worth noting that STI/Staccato tried that and opted for a shorter slide. Really hoping the slide...

    I agree although that seems like the best possible case since it seems like the bylaws limit the amount of AD turnovers that can happen in any given year. So people would have to have fairly long...

    My understanding of the bylaws is that if the remaining term is over 24 months there's a special election, if not 3 ADs nominate someone. My impression of this is that trying to elect Bruce pres is...

    The one he's shooting in the Springfield video is a pretty good looking gun. Hopefully it's compatible with something other than the RMR or SRO.

    Makes sense for Springfield to get into the 2011...
