"IF" we get to load 7, think of the new sweeps!!
« on: July 03, 2017, 08:07:21 AM »
I want to be the first to lay claim to this sweep, "IF" we ever get to load 7.     Two targets, dump 3 of the left target and 4 on the right target.   Now you may think that's pretty lame, but, in my state of Illinois, at one time, 3 of our last 4 past governors have spent time in prison.   Thus, the Illinois Governors sweep!
What say you sweepsters?

Ugh. No no no. I hate double taps, triple taps are silly and dumps are abominations...

For a governor sweep, I'd set 5 targets.

1    1    3    1     1

Three governors between the bars.

Or

Set the center target back 2 paces from the rest of the array.  Then ...

Three governors behind bars.

That was really funny Joe  ;D I lived in Ill (Chicago) the first 31 years of my life, it would have been funny then and its really funny now! 
Hopefully the WB Ambassadors listen to the masses and adopt the 7 in the mag, if they do that sweep of yours will be number 1 in my book of stages.  ;)

There are a lot of good 7 shot sequences that can be done on target sets that we now use for 5.

Blaze, the WBAS Committee would make this call not the Ambassadors.

Yep, I like yours better Joe.    Let's go with Illinois Governors Sweep,     5 targets set up like this.       
                                                                                                            3
                                                                                                      1  1  1  1

The Nasty Sweep. 6 targets.
1-2-3-4-5-6
2-3-4-5-6
3-4-5-6
4-5-6
5-6
6
21 rounds
Probably called something else but it's what we call it.

Then there is 1 on 1, 2 on 2, 1 on 3, 2 on 4 and 1 on 5.

A true regressive sweep.
The progressive would be:
1
1-2
1-2-3
1-2-3-4
1-2-3-4-5
1-2-3-4-5-6
 
And it's opposite!
1-2-3-4-5-6
1-2-3-4-5
1-2-3-4
1-2-3
1-2
1

Now keep those straight in your mind from one stage to the next!

Soooooooooooooooo,    that would be shot as follows:

1-2-3-4-5-6-1
2-3-4-5-1-2-3
4-1-2-3-1-2-1

I would hate to have a stovepipe in there somewhere.

Now that we can load 7, I posted a notice on the SASS wire:

http://www.sassnet.com/forums/index.php?/topic/265621-7-round-magazine-loads-in-the-1911-in-wild-bunch/

I'm looking forward to a growth in WBAS next year as new shooters join us to play the game with fully loaded 7-round magazines!

I don't care either way. I think you all are over estimating the surge in "new" shooters that WB will experience due to being able to load seven in a mag. A lot of the places I have shot WB has shooters that cannot keep track of five rounds shot, imagine what they will be able to do with seven. I have shot monthly shoots all the way up to EOT. I think it is going to be a mess for the silent majority in this game.

My thoughts exactly. Why are we changing things in the "hopes" of attracting new shooters. They will just find another reason to not shoot WB. What's next? 38's? 9mm?
