    Hallsville, MO will be my first GSSF event. Bringing my dad along to shoot. I am looking forward to the event, should be fun. :supergrin: I can tell my dad is nervous, but he would not admit it.

    Anything I should know about the place? :wavey:


    I plan on being there on Saturday.

    It just crossed my mind, is there something Glock Talkers are supposed to wear or do at these event so we can notice each other. Secret handshake? Red bandana around the leg? Green shoe laces? :supergrin:

    Larry (misunderestimated) tried to get the GTers circled up for a group photo a couple of years ago at Orlando. That in itself, with lots of GT 'advertising' was like herding cats and rounding them up. Everyone seems to drift aimlessly at these. I tried for a year to park my cart with my (old) SARDG license plate on it at the stage I RO, told everyone what I looked like, where I would be, etc... very tough it seems.

    Just be bubblely and outgoing and see if you can find some kindred spirits. A heck of a lot of GTers go to the SE matches in GA. Otherwise, it's a bit more sparse.

    Years ago there was a major push for Glock Talk T-shirts. They did not work. I had a friend make up Glock Talk name tags that hung on the back of your baseball cap. That didn't work. I had DannyR printed on the back of several golf shirts. That didn't work. Most GSSF'ers do not know what GlockTalk is. Now I focus on trying to make new friends, then remember their names afterwards.:wavey:

    I'll be there with. This is my second year. Came by myself last year (from Independence). This year I'm bringing 3 other guys. I'm going to shoot my G36, just to see how I do with it.

    Competed yesterday at my first GSSF event, Hallsville, MO. Very fun and a great time. Everyone there was friendly. The event was moving a little slow, but most volunteers and workers were learning as the event was their first time.

    Thank you to all the volunteers and workers for making it a great day. I shot well for my first event, but left plenty of room for improvements. My best performance was on a run of the plates which I did in 5.73 seconds (6 shots all plates down). Not as good as the sub 3 second guy, but hey I'm learning.

    My 69 year old father also shot and had a great day. Tried to get him to record me shooting the Glock M, but instead I got 5 minutes of the gravel and my father's shorts. He has a difficult time telling the difference between pause and play. O well.. Someone on here once commented, Don't let anyone over 55 operate a camera and my father lives up to that statement.

    If you are reading this and are anywhere near Hallsville, MO run over there today (Sunday, Sept 9th) and have a good time.
