Got this from Jim Griffiths of Richmond Hotshots via SFBay-IDPA @yahoogroups:
Interesting read (at least to me).
Over the past 2 days I have spent about 6 hours analyzing the results of the IDPA nationals. I expected to be able to show that there was no difference between ESP and SSP, and that there was no reason for the 2 divisions. I expected a widening gap between CDP and the other Auto divisions as the additional reloads made more of a difference. I expected to be able to show that the difference between SharpShooter and Marksman was mainly accuracy, the difference between Expert and SharpShooter was mainly speed and the difference between Master and Expert was accuracy.
When I looked at the data, though… I didn't see anything.
I always see something!
