    Didn’t have a good outing at yesterday’s match between a poor performance on myself and some inconsistencies of the match it was just a rough time all around......

    Ain’t that always the challenge of 3 gun?

    All sorts of different rule sets. Competitors and MDs shooting different stuff all the time.

    Gaming is the match directors fault.

    99.9% of that stuff can be handled through stage design and WSBs.

    I think you mean stage planning...

    “Gaming” is taking advantage of a hole in the rules, stage design or a written stage briefing.

    Oh, THAT kind of a "bad match."
    I was Thinking more like Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston.
    Or Lisa Marie Presley and Michael Jackson!
