On the USPSA shoot this past

On the USPSA shoot this past Sunday, does anyone know why,  the 3rd squad, shot their last stage on second bay?  I think it should have been bay one.

Jack, On the second round

Jack, On the second round that squad spent 30 min building their classifier while you were shooting stage 6. Since Stage 3 and 6 needed no setup, you shooting on (stage 6)  and I (on stage 4) quickly began shooting while the largest squad built their stage. You finished shooting stage 6 and moved down back to stage 4 waiting for my squad to finish. I was with them while they finished setting up their second stage and told them to jump down to 6 and my squad would shoot 5 while you shot 4. This meant they would finish on 5. 

Now the only reason I did this was since 5&6 were both open there was no harm in jumping them allowing stage 4 the biggest one to be torn down earlier that would have been available had they finished on 4. They were the largest squad and was best to have them finish on the quickest stage, which was stage 5. We would have all been there later in the day with fewer people at the end to tear down stage 4 had they not skipped 5. It was a good move to jump them. It was my fault the classifier was not built in the morning. It was my fault to not inform your RO's to not tear down the classifier. 

Thank you for your inquiry.

I'm more of a visual learner,

I'm more of a visual learner, so I tend to plot data to analyze it. I found the graphs interesting and figured some other people may as well. Tabs at the bottom for all the stages.

 

Let me know if anyone finds any errors.

Wow...Those are great charts.

Wow...Those are great charts. 

I learned long ago. Its all about the "PPS" (Points per Second). In USPSA you have to earn as many points as fast as you can. Each Hole in the A zone is worth 5 points. Hit factor is calculated by the time it takes you to to earn those 5 points. The one who earns a great number of points the fastest wins. 

Earn 120 points in 23.45 seconds is a hit factor of = 5.1172

Same stage, a minor shooter drops 2 "A"s into the C zone and only earns 116 points. He shoots it in 22.95, 1/2 second faster and gets 5.0544 hit factor.

Difference of -.0628..... about a half a tenth

Same scenario different stage. A smaller 60 point stage. 

Shooter 1 earns all 60 points in 13.54 seconds 4.4313 hit factor.
Shooter 2 drops those 2 shots into the C zone and earns 56 points in 13.04 seconds 4.1411 hit factor.

Difference of  - .2902.... almost 3 tenths

Conclusion: on a large stage, each point carries less weight so I shoot faster, On shorter stages that have fewer points I make dang sure I give away the fewest points possible.

Good News Jack

Good News Jack

Gilbert was listed as shooting Major. Well as we all know. There is no Production Major in USPSA. I have updated the scores and it looks like you bumped up a spot. Congradulations.

Great, all I have to do now

Great, all I have to do now is not shoot any no shoots {all thought I only shot the no shoot's twice but was charged for three times] and make sure I shoot all the target's. I may even make it to third place in production some day.
