Re: Good job

This is something Reising could have done in the first place. If Reising made the action bar alone heavier, it would have done the trick. Maybe he would have gotten more interest from officials if the gun was slower. I would add that I have cracked one leg of my original action bar at the rear but I...

Re: Magazine Capacity Restrictions

No doubt Lage has done wonders to the Mac series of guns and have allowed people with limited funds to get a machine gun that is competitive and fun to shoot and for that congrats to his designs. Also to the shooters that use his products, congrats on their shooting skills. But I would also say thes...

Re: Foot faults

That was me with the reising run. I was so happy the 45 cal. Reising took down the 2nd stage with one magazine and a round to spare that I ran to stage 3 but forgot that my foot was over the line the whole time on stage 3 so that was a 10 second penalty for every target (100 seconds)plus I lost time...

I feel Knob Creek has come a long way from the late 90's

I somewhat agree with the first poster, diojenes, that described the failure of modern tactical SMG competiton. I believe a course can be designed so to not set bad habits in the real world. First of all, "We" which includes all of us from all kinds of backgrounds are the ones who determine the "rul...

stage comments

Paul, good course. You were able to try a below eye level stage and now we have some ideas. For myself, I would not have a target that had a "no hit zone" such as the large poppers. Especially since they needed a burst to defeat. My son Thomas made the comment that Zombies need to be shot in the hea...

Good to have you Bob

From Mike Kummer. I don't know if you heard of the story of a dewat M3 in a pawn shop in Fort Wayne, IN about 6 months ago going for 1K. The buyer later was asking I believe 15K for it after he nabbed it. Mike

Good to have your here!

Someone who makes a living with firearms training can bring a "practical" approach to stage design. Among competitive subgunners, your the scale or the guy to beat. It doesn't matter how the rules or courses change; good shooters will always still be at the top. I have said this before but you remin...

Plastic Milk Jugs

Paul, I am going to try some 1 gal. plastic milk jugs sometime soon. Often times 1 bullet just moves it so slightly. If one were to have to knock say 6 to 8 of these off of a berm; it may encourage full auto fire. I am with you on NOT forcing one to use full auto. We need to present the course of fi...

Thanks guys

I can't remember how I came accross this sight. I believe only good can come from a open forum and ideas. Standards of competition may go a long way to winning over fence sitters on this type of weapon as a sporting type of weapon.

Sterling Classic?

I do not consider it a classic when it went into general production in 1953. Sure earlier models were experimented with but acceptance and use was much after 1945. Maybe a poll could be used for determination. I really don't consider the swedish K a WW2 gun but understand it made the 1945 cutoff. I ...

Magazine capacity

I would go for a 32 round limit on loaded magazines so as all the 30 round mag. guns (MP5, Thompson, Grease gun, Mac and Reising) will not be at a serious disadvatage. The 32 round mag. guns such as Uzi, M16/9, Sten MP40 and others will be right at home. Only the Sterling, Swedish K (S and W 76/MK76...
