Pretty much. Also, I don't like cross body draw. With it worn like it's supposed to it's very close to/breaking the 180 which is a big no-no in action matches. I was just trying to improvise. I could not even find pics of women in dress uniform carrying pistols so I'm not sure it ever was a thing. If you know more about that I would love to know how they did it!

We considered the SKS to be a very borderline gun. Late in '45 prototypes were used by the red army in small amounts. I don't think of SKS when I think of WWII either but I had someone asking if they could bring one, I said if you can show me online where they were fielded before/in 45 you can bring it, and he did, so... lol. We will allow again this year.

-laser beams attached?

-custom ammo?
-can I shoot it upside down and backwards since I broke/amputated my pinky toe?
-is there an extra fee to force you to stop being match director long enough to hear me explain how cool it is?
-12 of us want to share it during the match, can you schedule that?
-I am on drugs, and possibly drunk, can I still shoot?
-belt-feds OK?
-are you ordering extra t-shirts?
-will there be food? Will it be vegan/nut-free/keto?
-can I bring my pet?
-will there be a range I can sight in on?
-can I camp on the range?
-can I use tracers?
-I have a great idea for a stage, do you want to hear all about it?

That's all I got off the top of my head...I may check old emails when I get home.

Jess' Birthday is the 15th...they ain't coming. But if it ends up being a glitter-bomb party I may flee. Either to the cabin or up your way.
you crack me up!!
