USPSA Open Division featuring Old schools props.

I love old school props like the Rhodesian wall. They should do more matches like this.

The new style of see through walls sure do take the fun and surprise out of things, don't they.

I was going to post, "We have a Rhodesian Wall at our club, but rarely use it, and maybe we should use it more often". Then I watched the video, and see that it's a club in our Section! I've been shooting there for fifteen years, and I don't think I've ever seen that prop before. Still, we should use ours more often!
I'd love to run some of Col. Cooper's old courses of fire, as illustrated in Cooper on Handguns, with a lot of running and jumping, but I don't know how many shooters would really be excited about it, today.

OK, how about my Pentathalon Match, in which, after shooting a stage, you holster and run to the next one? That sounded like a really fun match when I was in my 30s, but today? Not so much!
