USPSA - Announcements

An announcement from the DNROI

Per recent board discussions, I am retracting the unofficial permission to use magazine couplers in the provisional PCC division.  That will take effect today. Notice of the change has been sent to all members via the news brief, USPSA web page, and USPSA forums, along with social media sites.  This will also be published in the next issue of Front Sight.  The board feels that following the pistol rules in this regard is the best way to go, and it makes sense to do so.  While we don't want to stifle innovation in this division, we are shooting carbines in pistol matches, using pistol rules.  Additionally, thigh rigs, drop-leg rigs and similar are not permitted in this division.  We are currently discussing questions concerning the use of full-auto capable guns, used in semi-auto mode.  As soon as a decision is reached, I’ll announce it.

So, apologies for the informal decision on the couplers; I was not alone in thinking they would be OK, but member input and board decisions have rendered them not legal for use in PCC.  They are still legal in USPSA Multigun competitions.
