    What this sport needs is 12" plates instead of those "tiny" 8" ones!

    OK, so we haven't got a snowball's chance in hell of getting them to use them. But I had to get it off my chest.

    ...and that's why I am starting to believe that the 45 caliber is THE caliber for plates! Bigger bullet allows ya to just catch the edge of some of those sneaky plates! ;Q

    When it comes to plates I prefer the 10 inch variety covered with a 24 ounce T-Bone, Rare. :)

    I think going to 5 strings and keeping your best four would make things real interesting though.

    Matt,
    While I agree it would, one of the "Monkeys in the Red Shirts" talked about it 2 yrs ago. The feeling was at the time that it would add somewhere between an hour and two to the match. Something they didn't feel the matches could handle at the time. That was just using a set time of around 10 seconds per run per shooter. It didn't take into account things like repainting the plates etc. It could easily add 2 hours to a match.

    There are 81 plates to be shot in a GSSF Match... shooting them all gets you a clean match!;P

    Here's to the pursuit of a clean match!;Y

    I like the plates, that's why I don't hit them, I feel bad when I marr them like that. That means someone has to waste paint to cover them again. I prefer the scare tactic myself, if you wiz a bullet close enough they fall.....trust me, I know!
