We have a few cross over shooters at our non-affiliated IDPA club that seem to have a problem remaining within the course design guidlines. Sometimes I think that the only difference between our IDPA matches and the IPSC matches is the round count and the occasional tactical reload thrown in to make it look like an IDPA match. I'm starting to get aggravated!
The last match we had one stage where you had to advance forward on three bad guys and one stage where you had to sit at a desk and duke it out with four poppers and one cardboard target while sitting at the desk!:scratch: Rules on cover garments are not enforced, something I understand in the heat of summer but not when it's only 60 degrees. Top shooter had both his mag pouch and pistol forward of center!
I can live with some individual shooter transgressions, but I believe stage design is an important part if IDPA matches.
Am I picking at a nit?
