Hi Folks. We received this from Area 5 Director Kyle Farris last night (Jan 31st) at 10:51 p.m., an hour and 9 minutes before it took effect.
Hello USPSA Section Coordinators and Club Presidents,
Per direction from USPSA President, Phil Strader, I am sending this email. Please get this out to all Match Setup staff, directly.
With the division change to Revolver, allowing 8-shot Minor, going into play in February…USPSA needs to pull some of the classifiers (at least for the time being). See the list below. You are getting this ahead of any changes on the USPSA website.
Nobody wants to lose any classifiers…even for a little bit. However, if you take a look at the list, most will show a clear advantage when comparing an 8-shot gun to a 6-shot. Such is the nature of the beast.
Please don’t run the classifiers on the list. All other classifiers on the USPSA Classification page should be current (over 60 classifiers to choose from in upcoming matches).
Here is the list of impacted classifiers. Again, please don’t run these, as they are in the process of being removed from the website:
1302, 1305, 1307, 1309, 9941, 9957, 0303, 0304, 0308, 0309, 0601, 0602, 0604, 0605, 0902, 0904, 0908, 0910, 0913
