If you plan on each stage having two or three strings, people get the reload just not on the clock.
You always get to reload between strings, I just remember thinking, "You will not reload, no matter what" when strings were six rounds and reloads take five seconds; it's not worth reloading even for a miss.
Five-round strings give you flexibility, if you're loading six.
Correct. I am excited to see what you come up with. I absolutely love matches with tons of really short stages! Much more realistic and approachable by everyone. The big bonus is that those who aren't the high speed movement types can do very, very well.

Trying to schedule the hand-sized match for the "fifth Saturday" in September.
We're also working on a 1911 single stack match for 2018. Similar to the hand-sized match, any/all ASI shooters are welcome, but there will be awards for the top finishers competing with 1911-style pistols. Maybe a movie theme, with stage designs based on scenes from Untouchables, Way of the Gun, The Getaway, Sgt.York? Seven stages ~100 rounds. Stay tuned.
