      I totally agree with Bob. How has my S&W PPC 9mm be been qualified as a Distinguished Auto gun for all these past 10 years if it was not a catalog item. If it was good enough of a catalog item as a distinguished, then replacing the triset aristocrat rear sight for a simple adjustable aristocrat model should not disqualify. Is it not a SERVICE TYPE sight? What the hell is a SERVICE TYPE sight? Isn't a fiber optic insert more of a customization then a simple plain rear blade? I feel that competing against customized 6" 1911 catalog guns and having to spend another $1500 for because my PPC 9 is no longer worth enough to offset that cost, thanks to this ruling. It is much more of a disadvantage to overcome then just changing the rear sight.
      As far as the awards at the NPSC I also agree. To take home these lucite 7th to 10th place awards and have to pay extra on the airline baggage fees is stupid. While the idea of awarding more guns to the lower classifications is an important incentive and reward to bring back shooters.......what a bunch of crock it was to limit the top shooters what they fully deserve,earned, trained for and spent expensive ammo and time for, to only win a limited few guns. Look, Tippet was wrongly denied the guns he truly earned and never came back again. Isn't a wonderful message to see one of the top champion shooters disgusted and leaving the sport and the nationals. Shouldn't we all be striving to one day beat a Hemphill, Tippet, Vadaz, Cobb, or Pride. They earned the prizes they win and some AYSO soccer type awards to everyone crying they didn't win is sad. There accomplishments are true excellence and something to be truly proud of the achievement, not some lucite nice looking dust collector.
