Title: Stock Class Sunday?
Description: & other thoughts

I was thinking. Saturday is our Big Game / Scenario. But Sunday is usually just open play.
How about for a few games, not all day but at least for a couple rounds, we do Stock Class Only. Maybe 3-4 games. Where markers absolutely need to be stick feeds and 12grams. I think we can be a little relaxed and not make it 100% SC rules, but keep it simple to horizontal stick feeds (any length), and 12 grams (any type of puncturing device). Possibly limit paint to 3 10rnd tubes per game? Or 5? Add in thoughts.
Another possibility could be a time trial target-shoot competition. Get from Point A to Point B in the shortest amount of time while hitting every target at least once. They don't need to be mechanical pop-up devices just cutout plywood or thick pie dishes would work. Varying distances and heights and sizes. Hoppers allowed, but everybody must start w/ only 10 rounds and can only load paint devices w/ 10rnd tubes. Gas source of choice.
Sunday tournament... did we do this last year? We could do a 3-man tournament. I like the random drawn system. Toss name in a hat and teams selected that way. More people are hopefully willing to join up that way.
Plus any time all day open play.
With all this we can have a plethora of fun on Sunday along with Saturday.

I'd like some sc play Sunday if I stay for the weekend of PP VI.

I'd love to see some SC only, although I don't see a need to restrict paint.

I don't normally do stockclass. I like CA and stickfeeds though. Frankly I just hate those stupid little 12g's. But if there is a stockclass tournament count me in.

I usualy use a 3.5 but I would be very interested in some sc play.

We usually do have stock class only games one Sunday. I think we have at every PP. That's the group that I have always played with. One year, I think it was the second(fiasco) PP that the stock class group challenged the open group in Fury Town. I think it was twenty versus twenty one and the stock lads pulled it off with one or two survivors -a very close sporting and fun game.
We have never been anal retentive about the stock class rules. the most important part is the horizontal feed so auto triggering and rapid fire are difficult. I have no problem with "Modified Stock Class" that drops a 3.5 oz tank off of your trigger guard. I also think it's fun to change twelve grams while under fire. But I don't like the waste and expense of twelve grams either.

Understood. Could even relax on the 12g requirement if most people prefer to use tanks and can agree to it that way. I completely get the whole expense issue, and waste, and all that concerning 12grams. It's why I have a 3.5oz CO2 tank, so I can have a small gas source but not have a lot of waste and not spend as much as the tank itself for a tiny box of 12ers. Much more cost effective/affordable to just use a tank.
Another thing, however, is if people want to play the old rules of all hits counting. It's where even if the paint doesn't break it still counts, honor system required obviously can't call for a hit-check.
Basically put most events tend to be majority rule. Whatever most people want to do then it'll get organized and done.

I buy 12g's in bulk from Leland. Each powerlet comes to about .23 cents. On a Phantom as well as some Sheridands, I can achieve 120 shots on a warm day. I recycle the spent 12g cases. No waste.

No way 120? how do you manage that?

Sorry. Forgot a couple'o specifics, my bad... 120 shots w/3 twelvee's :D
That's about .60 cents for 120 shots, which is close to a 3.5oz fill which costs me $2.50 if I was to have it filled at my local pro shop.
So, way cheaper.
Sound better? :D

Ok that sounds much less like you are on crack :D
The wife and I are going to be at PP for the first time this year, I'd love to try some actual stock class play, and hopefully by then I'm going to have her shooting a Nel-spot so maybe I can get her in on it too.
