    Howdy All,

    1. Butch and the Gunny Match just seem to go so well together!!! Kudos!:supergrin:

    2. The Lady and I and others are privileged to shoot with him from time to time at ranges near his place. A superb instructor for new shooters. Always ready to share insights and techniques with all.

    Keep up the good work. Looking forward to your upcoming visit to the desert. I am sure we will find some time to hang out at the range and burn some powder.

    Does that mean I would have to practice more than just qualifying once a year?
     
  15. I would love to go to a GSSF match. When will the 2013 schedule be out???? ​

    Any suggestions on training? Website??​



    Butch are you shooting a G34C in the video? Thanks​

    You're in NW Indiana then? The matches closest to you next season would be at Brighton, Michigan (near Detroit), Merietta and Dayton, Ohio, and Milwaukee, Wisconsin. I've heard a rumor that the Indianapolis match is in doubt for next year.

    The 2013 match schedule isn't likely to be seen till sometime after the first of the year.

    Website: gssfonline.com be sure to check the new shooter briefing too-> http://www.gssfonline.com/regforms/new_comp_brief.pdf


    That was a Gen4 G35 in .40 S&W with an Ameriglo fiber optic sight.
     
  17. Thank you for the information and congratulations. I live near St. Louis so I may have to drive away to compete.

    You won't have to drive too far!

    One of the oldest GSSF matches is held at Hallsville, Mo...just north of Columbia, and a new match was held just very recently at Sparta, Illinois....just southeast of St. Louis....too bad you didn't get in here a little sooner, you coulda started there!
