    Me shooting an extra classifer with my revolver and totally screwing it up. (missed first round and needed to fire 6 rounds reload and shoot 6 rounds) Enjoy and laugh.

    I got 6th place again. Same 5 people beat me pretty much all the time. But then again most of them are A class.

    Seems like they make you do a lot of one handed shooting.

    That is one clean indoor range! Looks like they polish the floors. I wish our indoor range was that nice.

    Good shooting!

    What is the ruling on this? I would think with the gun pointed downrange and finger out of the trigger it wouldn't be a problem? Especially just prior to holstering.

    Your allowed to do anything you want after the make ready command without breaking the 180. You can point at targets etc. It is all part of making ready. You can't do it in IDPA. I always scan before I re-holster. Training. If you can find in the rule book where I am mistaken please cite it. I have been wrong before lol.

    8.7 Sight Pictures and Range Inspection
    8.7.1 A competitor is permitted to take a sight picture prior to the start signal.
    Such sight picture is only permitted from the “Make Ready” location.

    8.3 Range Communication
    The approved range commands and their sequence are as follows:
    8.3.1 “Make Ready” – This command signifies the start of “the Course of
    Fire”.
    Under the direct supervision of the Range Officer the competitor
    must face down range, or in a safe direction as specified by the Range
    Officer, fit eye and ear protection, and prepare the handgun in accordance
    with the written stage briefing. The competitor must then assume
    the required start position. At this point, the Range Officer will proceed.

    The key is prior to the start signal.....

    Yes that is what I was doing. I scanned after the make ready and prior to the start signal.

    I just hosted a USPSA RO class and this topic came up. According to the NROI staffer who taught the class, Yes, Virginia, you CAN take a sight picture with a loaded firearm.

    Make Ready signifies the start of the stage, but the "start signal" is the beep of the timer (in most cases).

    To clarify--after "Make Ready", you can't do anything you want. You can't move from the make ready location.

    You guys are right. I emailed John Amidon and got this response.

    Loaded sight picture

    There is nothing in the rules that prevents a loaded sight picture, it can be considered as the make ready command.

    I know, John. I was surprised too. It's a change since my first RO class, but right in front of God and everybody, Jay flat said it was okay.

    No worries I shot that a bit slow but I did not hit the no shoot like a lot of people. I ended up with 4th place on that stage. I was slower but did not screw it up.

    ugh. Missing the final steel on the left side of that classifier and not calling it really sucks, doesn't it?

    You aren't moving all that fast on the draw - just working on your hand speed down to the gun, and out to the target, could shave a few tenths. Just something I noticed. Especially the first vid and the classifer. The seated stage looked speedier.

    Other than that, solid shooting, and great indoor stages.
