“To be very honest, I was initially completely against the idea of 8 shot minor guns.”, David said. “However, once the decision was made by the USPSA board and I was able to use my ICORE 8-shot gun in USPSA, I quickly determined that it made shooting USPSA much more fun. One outcome that I did predict is that once the eight shot guns were allowed the six shot guns would become useless. So yes, the 8-shot gun has killed off the old six-shooters.”
Ladies Champion, Annette Aysen shared the same opinion;
“When USPSA announced allowing the 8 shot minor, I was excited as everyone else. Once giving it a lot of thought unless all matches would be set up as 6 shot friendly, the major caliber 45 would not survive. I believe in encouraging shooters to compete with the equipment they have, keeping expenses down. The numbers here for this match is what I had feared.”, said Annette.
