You’re making the point that is obvious to so many, which is that precious metals are severely over leveraged. The real value will only be realized when we return to a true 1:1 correlation of contracts to ounces. The inherent issue with the current system is that the market is misrepresenting how much physical metal is actually available, suppressing the price. This house of cards will come tumbling down and those who actually hold physical will finally be rewarded for taking physical off the market. The game is almost over. This rigged system cannot continue much longer.
This sounds like a similar qual that TTC is doing but TTC only goes out to 15yards and there was no sitting or weak hand shooting. Why do you think the one you took was easy for you but TTC's with less requirements is overly stringent?
What I saw was that TTC's qual method worked and exposed those that were not proficient. I was just surprised so many people showed up that hadn't practiced in a while and thought they would pass.
Very well said. If you can’t score above 90% out to 15 yards, you have no business carrying a gun. I saw so many people that looked like they just bought their gun and then tried to qualify, but failed. Couldn’t even perform basic safe handling. Do us all a favor and practice, get some training, and then try to qualify.
I like RichP’s thinking and along those lines, the interwebz is saying the poissons ratio of silicon is only .2-.3. I think you want something closer to .5 (like natural rubber…or cork) so that any axial compression is matched with a radial expansion.
