I would love to see some changes made to USPSA formats for 2010. While there are many things I’d like to see changed, there is none greater than fixing the revolver division.
Right now, there is no reason whatsoever to limit Revolver division to 6 rounds in the gun. What I’d like to see would be a simple rule change that would make Revolver division mirror Single Stack in terms of ammo capacity. In Single Stack, if you’re shooting Major power factor, you’re limited to a maximum of 8 rounds in the magazine, but if you’re shooting Minor PF you can have up to 10 rounds in the mag. For Revolver division, you could change the rule so that if you’re shooting Major PF, you’re limited to 6 round revolvers, such as the S&W 610 or 625, but if you shoot Minor PF, you could be allowed to use 7 and 8 shot revolvers such as the S&W 627 (8-shot) or the Taurus 66 (7-shot, cut for moonclips of course).
I think that making this kind of divisional change would really enhance the competition in the Revolver division, as the strategy of Minor vs. Major would enter in, as well as how to best count your rounds before your reload.
I’d like to see a similar change for IDPA, but I’m not quite as sure how we’d go about enacting it, since they break moonclip and speedloader revolvers into two different divisions. Thoughts on that are welcome in the comments.
