Questions for a USPSA Single Stack shooter

I am planning to begin shooting USPSA Single Stack in the spring, but do not have anyone local to ask questions of. I think I know the answers to the following four questions, but would like to confirm to be sure all will be OK when I show up to compete. So, here goes:

Is an extended slide release legal in Single Stack competition?

Is an extended magazine release legal in Single Stack competition?

Is a Pachmayr grip with finger grooves on the front strap legal in Single Stack competition?

Can I use a double mag pouch (such as the Blade-Tech Signature Series Double Mag Pouch with Tek-Lok) or am I restricted to single mag pouches?


Thanks in advance to any and all responses!

Have read and re-read the online rules, but have not found a clear, specific, and unambiguous answer to each of these questions. That's why I'm asking.

Have you tried contacting the USPSA and asking them directly? I believe you are in area 8, try giving them a call.

USPSA contact information

I checked the link Chuck provided and understand your confusion. I don't know for sure but I don't think many of us shoot in that competition. I would like to but the closest "Club" to my house is a good 2 hour drive one way.
The rules I saw are kind of vague and "in general" seemed like a lot of exact rule facts are up to the Club you are shooting at.
Looks like you will have to call or find a member who knows the rules.

I didn't see any Kimber's on the approved gun list??

If I recall...43 ounce limit. Mag well okay if the gun with magwell and mag seated fits in the box. So Wilson 47 DEs with .625 base plate fit. I don't believe there has been a change to mag release. Which was no longer than .10" over original and no added diameter.

Kimber is allowed in Single Stack but not legal in Production.

There's nothing like encouragement to give you hope!
