    In I.P.S.C. can Glocks be used in Limited 10 division? It is my understanding the L-10 is reserved for single-action autos only...i.e. a 1911, etc...using a Glock from Limited or Production, and just sticking with 10 rounds mags fits the requirements?

    All Glock models are legal for L10 except the 380s. Just loda em to 10 rounds.

    Glocks are fine in Limited10...or Limited...or Production...maybe, even Open.

    To make Major Power Factor in Limited or Limited 10, you will need a 40 caliber or larger.

    There is no single-action requirement in USPSA/IPSC.

    You may be confusing that with the NON single-action first shot requirement of Production Division.

    I was told my g23 could only be in production,,and all production is scored minor.. Now i do think my friend shot his g35 in limited ten, although i'm not sure why they let him do that but not the G23 ?..

    Doesn't really matter i started shooting my 1911 for uspsa anyway.

    but interesting on the rule interpertations..

    Hunter, they gave you bad information. Your 23 is probably most appropriate for production (competitive) assuming that it has no significant mods. You could shoot the thing in Open, Limited, Limited 10 or production. In the other divisions besides Production, your ammo would have to meet the power factor of 165 to make Major, power factor is bullet weight X velocity divided by 1000. So your 165 gr bullets would have to chrono at 1000 feet per second to be scored major. In production (in USPSA) all rounds are scored as minor which is a power factor of 125. That was done so that the 9mm duty type guns which were not single action would have a place to play.

    Hope that helps,
    ajm

    Hunter,

    Based on what it states in the attached extract from the USPSA rule book you can use the g23 in the L10 division
