I make my living with a computer and some pretty advanced design and manufacturing software. They will bite you in the ass in a heartbeat. Put any computer in the hands of someone who is not computer savvy and you are asking for disaster. The words, "I didn't know you could make it do that" from a support tech come to mind.

I am happy with the situation as it is. It looks like a nice middle of the road solution that accommodates the shooters, volunteers and staff all at once. Impatience for something good is not dissatisfaction.

I like that last line, RonS. I didn't want anyone to think I was badmouthing GSSF or the folks in Marietta who helped. I just didn't understand why it took so long. I think the best solution, as others pointed out, is to cut the 30 day delay down to 14. This doesn't add any work for anyone and still gives more than enough time to notice an error.

On a lighter note, how long do I have to wait for my free pistol certificate?

not as long as you will wait for the pistol

IF you choose one of the models that is not in stock and only has one

production run per year.

I waited 5 1/2 months for a Gen4 G20. About 5 weeks for a Gen4 G17.

Because of this "delay-in-scoring" problem I put my software company to work on it.
They quickly developed a program we call Precognitive Dreamware.

The Precognitive Dreamware software runs simultaneously with Glock's archaic registration software. After all shooters are registered, it precalculates the winners and post them on the Internet the day before the scheduled shoot.

On the day of the shoot only the winners are required (allowed?) to attend. At that time all prizes will be presented to the winners. Those shooters that are lucky enough to win a gun will have already had their background checks completed and will be able to take their dream guns home with them.
We call them Precognitive Dreamware Guns just to garner a little free advertisement for our software.
By the way, this software can calculate correctly, 99% of the time, which model of Glock each winner desires to own.

However, when my sales staff offered this innovative (to say the least) software to the Glock executives in Georgia, we were told to ...well..."Pound sand!".
They claim people actually enjoy shooting matches just as they are!

You would be correct more often than the weatherman.
