First topic message reminder :

I still remember the old heads whining when they started using the Beretta 92 for Leg Matches.  One said, "The distinguished metal should be smaller if won with a 9mm." Smile   

Back then the services had their own specific set of rules.   I believe the USMC had the most restrictions.  I understood that their regulation specified specific USMC matches where the points must be won.   My USAF memory says, only one State championship, only one regional leg and the remainder at higher levels.  The Army recognized points from the Combat match.  THE USAF recognized one combat leg. 

The rules for the gun was the same for everyone.

I experienced similiar results. Same gun and in the day when the ammo was issued.  

We do complain too much about changes, BUT: we should all be shooting the same ammo as others (in the same caliber). Just to keep it as even as practical.

None of my comments are made to disparage later awards!

Makes me think of the old hot/cold, wet/dry, windy/calm arguments.  We could say that the competition for a given day should be pretty much equal.  Then I remember a leg day in the early 80s, the last time the Army Area match was held at Ft Meade Maryland.  So cold the on the first relay my fingers could hardly load the magazine.  Thought I had it bad until a little later, sitting at Lums with a cup of coffee, I could see the range flag in the distance, snapping in the wind.. Shocked
