I highly recommend this match to all. The rules are easy. Its almost like IDPA equipment rules at an IPSC match.

With any luck the world situation will have settled down and I will be able to make it. See any of you there?

O.K. I followed the link and read the rules.

I have a couple of gamer questions.

Didn't Robbie use a six inch gun last year?

Tungsten guide rods allowed?

Long dust covers?

Could I use my Cylinder & Slide gun...Caspain slide and frame, Barsto barrel w/bushing. (I am pretty sure Bill has produced more than 500 over the years.) It is the only single-stack that I have.

Is this the only match that the "Society" has? Any other benefits of becoming a member?

Robbie won last year with a 5 inch. It was this years Area 1 that he cleaned up with his 6 inch single stack.

Yes for tungsten guide rods, no bull barrels.

No long dustcovers.

No other 1911 Society matches that I am aware of. Richard???

I'm planning on being there. This match is a blast and PASA is one of the nicest looking ranges in the Mid-West.

The equipment rules are very fair and I like that it uses IPSC range rules. If you're not sure if you want to attend I think you'll really have a great time- and the lunch was good too!

Hope to see you all there-

Brent

Tom, Thnaks for answering all the questions. I didn't think to check this until now. Rules are simple. We try like hell to make this a Shooters Match. However, we do not put up with Whining or those who want to Lawyer the rules. Please don't try to read stuff into the rules that aren't there.
There is a Single Stack in Florida, it was two weeks ago. There is a possiblity of another one this year in the Midwest, but it is still in the Talking Stage.

I guess I need to whine a little.

I am all for keeping things simple. But, if people are going to be driving/flying for a day to get to the match...and shelling out some cabbage for expenses...the rules need to be crystal clear.

I can read them to mean: nothing but a milspec...to a Les Bear Monolith (assuming he makes 500).

What about the midwest match. I know of a great, up-and-coming range in Ohio that is looking to host a large type match next season. Willing and able. Let me know what is required.

I will jump in here, as I am sure Richard is busy on a machine or at a bench.

I asked Russell Cluver about the extended dustcover and unique cut slides two years ago when I was squadded with him at Nationals. The short answer is no. If it does not look like a "Standard Profile" Single Stack 1911, then no, it is not legal.

You aren’t whining, just asking a question. I was wondering if my STI single stack that had been modified to take single stack mags was legal. Same answer. No. The SSC rules are there to “level the playing field” and keep the match from becoming an equipment race like USPSA Limited became when high caps and long dustcovers were allowed.

Like I said, pretty much IDPA equipment rules at an IPSC match. For specific questions, email Russell.

The rules seem pretty simple...being a gamey guy, I don't have any confusion about the compact models with bull barrels, etc., because I wouldn't bring one. I wouldn't bring my IPSC limited gun, because it says 1911 single stack..not a 2011 with 8 rounds. :grin:

anyway, I'm just goofing around..It seems like a pretty fun match to be shot with a traditionally configured 1911...Lets see who the best shooter is, not the shooter with the best gun..

Here are the rules from the website..

1911 Single Stack Match Rules

USPSA Latest Edition Rule Book, except for the equipment rules which are as follows:

Pistols
The definition of a 1911 Pistol is as follows: The 1911 Government Model as designed by John M. Browning and adapted by the U.S.
Government as a service pistol, (commonly known as a 5 inch Gov't Model). To include any compact models.

Pistols
1911 Production Pistols Only, No comps, Barrel Weights, Barrel Ports, Optics, or any kind of Electronic Sighting Device, Factory
Length Mags Only.

Production Pistol: a pistol which has been available for at least 12 months and has had a minimum of 500 units produced.

No coned barrels or barrels with flanges will be allowed. (Except a production pistol with this type of barrel. Manufactured before October 1, 1995)

The pistol must fit in a box of the following size: 8.90 x 6.00 x 1.81 inches.
Maximum mag capacity:
8 Rds. 45 ACP
9 Rds .40 S&W, 10mm
10 Rds. .38 Super, 9mm

Holsters, Magazine Pouches, and Belts
Only safe holsters and magazine pouches, on waist level belt, worn behind a line drawn down the center of the shooter's side are
permitted. Belt must pass through pant loops or be attached to pants belt by velcro or keepers.

Holsters and magazine pouches designed specifically for competition or to gain a competitive advantage are not in the spirit of the 1911 Society and are not permitted.

Holsters and magazine pouches should be designed for continuous daily carry and should be reasonably concealable.

Exception: Full-time police officers may use their duty rig, but all retention features must be used.

Birch:

I'm going to bring the Delta Gold Cup that Brian built up for me. I think I'll throw a spare S&W magwell on my stock one and bring it along as a back-up.

At the last SSC I made the idiot decision to bring all of my old brass since I'd be losing it. I had a case rupture on the third to last stage and freeze my gun up, blow the medallions of my grip, and cut my hand a bit. Of course this all happened while the super squad was watching while they waited on the stage.

Brian made fun of me about that for a month, and I learned my lesson.

So, this year, new brass and I'm bringing a backup gun!

They let me finish the match with a borrowed .45 ACP, which was cool- but my nerves were shot!

What are you shooting?
