    Now that you mentioned it, one round per target is a excellent way to reduce round count while not greatly diminishing the fun and *training aspect.

    *I'm going by the premise that splits need less practice than transitions.

    I'm surprised IDPA's collective head didn't explode though with the thought of the cardboard muggers only getting one round a piece.

    No, that would be USPSA. I can't recall a USPSA field course with other than two scored hits per target.
    IDPA switches things around more.

    I shoot a 3 shot-per-target UPSA field course maybe a couple times per year (shooting 25-30 matches a year). Had one last weekend in fact. 1-shot-per-target is a lot less. The last time I remember one for sure was at the 2017 Area 8 match.

    It's definitely uncommon, yeah, but I remember a 27-round 1 shot per target memory stage at the MN Section match a few years ago. That was a challenge. Thankfully some friends and I all walked it together and mapped out which targets needed to be shot from which views.

Thankfully, I got a full refund (did not expect that, but I guess the fact that there was a waiting list probably helped). REALLY hoping for a vaccine to be available soon.
    Don't think I saw you this year but hopefully will next year. Your conclusion about the section match was indeed correct.

    Yeah, it's been a while - I've only been to one match since February, and like I mentioned earlier in thread, it didn't fill me with happiness. Hopefully things will get back to something resembling sanity over the next few months. Really I just need there to be a vaccine so I don't have to feel like I'm putting my wife at risk any time I come into contact with other people.

    The IDPA and USPSA numbers seem down in my area. And oddly enough the Indiana USPSA state championship match this weekend has several open slots which I can't remember when it wasn't plus capacity being shooters from surrounding states always added numbers.
