You're shooting Steel like an A class shooter. Why are you shooting the Paper so slowly? ---- Dave Marques, Production Nationals, 2005
This is a game of high-speed precision. If you don't precisely plan what you want to happen, there's not much chance that it will. ---- Brian Enos, 2004

I shoot this one from right to left and I take about 1.7 to 2 seconds on the first target then go like hell. Can any of you guys give me an idea of about what the percentages will be or are you gonna make me suffer until they run the scores next month?
Posted 24 November 2001 - 06:35 PM
My first run at this classifier was a 32%. That's for the 3.9242 hit factor. I'm still waiting for the other club to send in the second run at this classifier. Hope that helps.....
Will USPSA continue to enter scores for a classifier if you've shot it once already? In other words, If I shot Bang & Clang three times this year in Limited, would they enter all three scores in the data base?

They enter all of the scores in the data base, but they only count the best score in your average. The lower scores get flagged and thrown out.
Thanks for the info. Looks like I'll come in at 69.55 per cent (hoped for better). This is a tough classifier to move up with.

Ron, your approach is all wrong... it's not "then go like hell," it's just plain, "go like hell." :) Your draw is killing you on this one. Michael Voigt said the draw is everything on this stage.
Get your rig lined up on that left popper so your gun draws straight to it. It doesn't need much of a sight picture; none of them do. You've got to have your index right. At LAMR, take your time to get positioned perfectly, practice draw, and index through the targets a few times. At Standby, be relaxed!
The thing about this stage is you are either a hero or an also-ran. Having to make up a popper or shooting a D on paper will put you in the latter category. But it's only 30 points, so don't worry about it trashing your match.
Posted 26 November 2001 - 03:52 PM
Yeah, the draw killed me. I had splits between targets of .20-.28 and a .17 split on the paper and that's good for me. Obviously, I am still fighting the over aiming problem. I can easily draw and hit the popper in a second when I practice, but I lack confidence in my ability to do it in a match.

I thought I had just burned it down:
2.43 seconds / 30 points / HF 12.345679
If I recall right it was like an 89%. I thought that was fast, then I got to watch Joe Kessler shoot it, I almost cried. He did it in like 2.22 seconds or somethig like that. We are shooting this one Saturday,we'll see what happens.
Posted 12 December 2001 - 11:53 AM
Eric, do you hit paper first, or just go L-to-R starting with the poppers and hitting the paper as you go?
Are the rear poppers hidden behind the front?
Just looking at it I figured 3-4 sec.
2.22 is screaming!!
Mr. Voight is right, this is definately a draw-time test.
This will put my 007 holster to the test!

IIRC, there's a little trickiness to this one in that the poppers overlap slightly. Other than that, make sure you get the As on paper.
Next time I shoot this I'm going to make sure to be relaxed. It's easy to get all fired up and tense for this one.

The sheets were handed to me upside down allowing me to pick the first shooter, I picked myself! Dammit!
"Do you understand the course of fire?" the RO belted. I looked at him and said, "I need to get this in 3.25sec". He replied, "Don't worry about the time, shoot it to your capability.." Although I understand his response, I still didn't like it. If I couldn't do it in under 3.00, I would be really down on myself.
Shiet!! I had to re-engage the last popper.....
I looked to see that I DID get 2 "A" on paper,.."What's my time.." I asked, " 2.88 " he replied.
I shot it again for Limited-10 classification. The first popper I engaged didn't go down. I had to come back to it! Still 30pts in 2.94sec though.....a good day.

2.60 29 points open class
was like a 76%.......yuk! The draw killed me here......it was our first stage of the day.....

6 Benzick, David 1 B Limited 29 0 3.87 7.4935 24.4287 81.43%
1.42 second draw and had to make up a miss on the second popper.

4.64 seconds 6.0345HF 14.0001 46.67% match avg.
2 misses on steel killed my score (though I'm a C shooter anyway so I'm supposed to shoot 46%).
The stage was won by Phil Strader (who is one hell of a good guy) using his STI .40 (Limited) He shot it in 2.32, no points down. He beat out Todd Jarret (2.34 sec.) even though Todd was shooting open. I shot Phil's limited gun/load last weekend; nothing majic there: its an ordinary STI .40 with about a 3 lb trigger (yeah, at least 3 lbs) and reloads with westcoast bullets. Buy an off the shelf STI and you are ready to go race with the best of them.

This was a good day for me because I had just shot the Mini-Mart classifier two stages back in 5.86 with all 60 points.
1 Sites, Eric B 60 0 5.86 10.2389 60.0000 100.000
The last time I shot Band & Clang was in January at another club and shot it in 2.69 with 30 points hf 11.1524. I was very happy with that day also... 91.413 % I don't think I indexed the targets any faster I just had a faster draw.
Posted 09 April 2002 - 10:02 AM
I tried to shoot this one as relaxed as possible although that was not easy. A lot of people in my squad had trouble with it. I don't think anyone dropped any D's, although there were a good many C's. For such a small classifier, I thought it was a lot of fun.

Limited 30pts, 2.55sec (8 shots)
Should be a 96+% run.
Posted 15 September 2002 - 08:12 PM
I had to make up the last popper and thought 2.66, 29pts Open might be on the edge of M.. not even close.
This is the highest HHF classifier I know of ('sides the fixed-time ones, of course). Any others break 14?
Posted 27 October 2002 - 05:14 PM
Well the score is posted and it's 74 per cent. Oh my, just how high is the hit factor on this beast with a foo-foo blaster?

If you shot Limited, it should end up just under 97%. Good job.
