That is still spoken of in Charlotte.

In hushed tones, but still.

john shaw was my mentor- and I believe that's an 1100 in the picture- talk about a ( pardon the pun) blast from the past- we've long since parted ways, but I still have his book" you can't miss" and use his loads -

Too bad nobody has the balls or the facilities to do that anywhere near Seattle... FAS in Onalaska's a "maybe candidate," but when you don't drive getting there might as well be trying to go to Mars.

I remember the first one. I did well but, it kicked my butt. It was what IPSC was gonna be. I stopped shooting IPSC when an event called for 34 rounds standing in a cut off 55 gal drum. Not "practical" (in the original meaning of the term). I went thru the whole "warrior" vs "sportsman" controversy and gave up in disgust.

I recall it as martial artist vs gamesman, but about the same. I went to my first USPSA match in decades last month. The martial artistes (not the same as martial artists) were much in evidence.

I quit IPSC/USPSA after a match where a couple of stages featured "problems" that would have made air support the best option.
