What do you expect from a splinter group run by whiners who decided to take their make-believe ball and go play their own game instead of try to fix what they considered to be wrong with the "big" game? Printed rules where everyone can SEE them? Oh, my no...
As said here already, how many "shootouts" take place with empty brass littering the ground? Practicing real skills is one thing, forcing injuries to conform to some made-up wanna-be Warrior's idea of "tactical" is just stupid.
PS I shoot both sports (as well as CAS), but sure get tired of the blatent mismanagement of IDPA and the shameless huckstering of CAS. At least in IPSC you know exactly what you are getting...a bunch of rules lawyers and gamesters who ADMIT what they are doing
