Anybody know if this is going on this year? The previous few at Renton were a blast to shoot. Can't find any info on their website.

Hand-sized match will be held on Saturday, September 29th.
Also:
NWPPA will host a single stack "championship" in conjunction with the July 14 ASI match at Renton.

"Single Stack" matches have a long tradition in the practical shooting sports; when practical pistol competition was developing in the 1970s, the dominant pistol was the 1911-style .45, but as capacity became a more important component to winning, the 8- or 9-round pistol that had its ammo oriented in the magazine in a "single stack" fell by the wayside in the winner's circle, but not in the hearts of competitors.

To celebrate the enduring awesomeness of the 1911 pistol, the July ASI match will feature seven, 12-15 round stages.

The match is still open to all ASI competitors, but those vying for match awards must choose to compete in one of two categories:

Shoot "minor" power ammo, roughly factory 9mm equivalent, with 10-round mags.

Shoot "major" power ammo, roughly factory .45 ACP equivalent, with 8-round mags.

Scoring will be adjusted for "major" in recognition of the greater recoil effect of the more powerful cartridge.

Courses of fire will be chosen to not convey an overall advantage to either 8rd or 10rd capacity.

Awards for top ten finishers.

You must have missed the rule that states "robots must shoot the match WHO (mag changes not included, for safety)."

When I saw the title of the thread my mind said "Only Kel-Tec P3AT's, Seecamps, and other truly "Hand sized" guns. :bigsmile:
