49July/August 2007 • FRONT SIGHT
Level 3 retention holsters. Whatever itwas, stay and shoot I did.Of the 93 competitors, all but a fewwere running and gunning with Gas-ton’s creation. Approved by and rununder USPSA’s banner, rules, andcourse design, this “Glocks Only”match was an IPSC match in every wayexcept equipment. Instead of “Lim-ited” and “Open,” the divisions werebased on frame size. At the top wasFull Size division (G17 and largerframe sizes), followed by Compact di-vision (G19, 23 etc.) and then the de-manding Sub-Compact division whereG26’s and 27’s barked in the shooters’hands. All calibers were scored minorand magazine length was held to140mm. Scopes and compensatorswere allowed, but relatively few shoot-ers used them.The stages were the brainchildrenof the “oldest teenager” in the USPSA,Rich “Rocket Man” Redovian. I haveknown Rich since I first met him at the10th anniversary of the Area 1 cham-pionships in Nampa, Idaho roughly 15years ago. He is just as fast, fun,friendly and fit now as he was then,only now he qualifies for the senior di-vision! He and his lovely wife Carrie,along with an energetic crew, set upand ran this one day $20 match at theGem County Rod and Gun Club. Thismatch had an energy that was palpable.
