    For most shooters 2-5% is dwarfed by their skill limitation. As you get further up the food chain 2-5% starts meaning more.

    This is from his own post here about what kind of dedication it took to make GM with a G26. It wasn't "casual." He practiced for multiple HOURS per day.





    In rereading it, it seems that maybe Tony was saying that 121 days at 4 hours per day and that 770 was done at scaled 45-60 min per day which is about right.
    Obviously thatís over simplistic. And, yes, of course heíd have an easier time with a G34 vs a G26. My point was that most people would think itís impossible to do such a thing when in reality itís not. It just takes more time and dedication. But its all a balance though, right?

    The fact of the matter is thereís a highly likely chance that whatever gun any person is using is not holding them back. If Random Person A can make GM with a G26, then the person complaining about their G17 keeping them in C Class is probably not looking at things correctly barring any obvious physical limitations.

    And thatís exactly why you shouldnít be frustrated about rulesets and divisions.

    Note that the 2-5% gun thing is also the same estimated spread lost to major/minor in limited.

    So you can shoot limited minor as high cap production at the B class level and also be similarly unconcerned like a G26.
    Pointing at cardboard things....
