Default USI seems to be turning a corner

The last few times at the public range things seem to be going a bit faster. They also now implemented a new process where you just tell the RSO when you leave. No need to grab your license now, avoids congestion in the office.

Hopefully the AP side have more freedom as well.

Now to close that wall between the rifle and pistol side, will speed things up.

Hopefully positive changes keep coming.

The AP range just had a trial USPSA match to demonstrate that it can be ran safely. Still havenít heard anything about whether they got the necessary votes/approval to sanction matches but Iíll be there later today and can hopefully get an update from one of the guys to report back.

The new USI president is much more customer service oriented. I am confident that lots of good changes are coming to USI.

Update from the AP range: The mini USPSA match went well, although no other USI board member showed up to spectate besides the new president, even though the other 5 board members were invited. Theyíre going to run another mini match at the end of this month to continue to get used to running USPSA safely before it goes to a vote. One of the challenges is that most of the ROs at the AP range have not ROíd for a USPSA match or have not done so in a long time. So there is a learning curve before they are confident in their ROs and procedures before it goes to a vote and hopefully opens up to the public.

Fingers crossed that it works out. Was at AP practice session on Sat and the mini course looked interesting.

Is AP practice at all like Richmond? A RO is watching the line and several shooting can come up, unholster and shoot. RO calls for ceasefire like every 15 minutes or so.

Having a really strict and formal AP practice kind of kills the fun.

Only one shooter at a time comes up to the line to shoot, an RO is watching and running a timer.

Weak! Aside from drawing, not much difference than Public range.

Glad that theyíre unclogging some of the processes! Always wondered why they were SO strict on the C-19 crap. Yes, I get it, they donít want to get shut down, but I think they were a bit overzealous and a bit heavy handed in their approach.

Looking forward to the new and improved USI. Really would hate to see us lose another range in the Bay Area.

I’d say it is significantly better than the public range. Ability draw, rapid fire, shoot steel and fire at multiple targets instead of just the single paper target is definitely more fun than the public range. I haven’t been to the AP range at Richmond yet, but I get why DAP is pretty strict about safety, they don’t want to be shut down once again due to an AD going over that hill. That’s why approval for running USPSA matches is taking so long. I did get a chance to run one of the USPSA stages they had built for the recent matches at one of the practices and it was loads of fun to shoot. Looking forward to them expanding more of the USPSA stuff.
