My second experience with a GSSF match

Discussion in 'GSSF' started by MotoGlock, Jan 19, 2013.

  1. I believe I would make a pretty darn good R.O. :supergrin:
  2. Good. I am trying to make you, Chad, and Scott feel particulary guilty so that you'll all be certain to volunteer next time. :wavey:

    I knew where you were going with that comment. :upeyes:

    We'll see what happens next year. I was pretty tired after a week of SHOT Show and I'm not sure I would have been able to provide the happy go lucky attitude that Moto would have been looking for. I just think that if they required all ROs to have at least shot one match, and to have read the rule book that things would go a lot better.

    There have been multiple occasions where the ROs have not been as competent as Kitty which resulted in a "disagreement" about scoring and/or squading procedures. :whistling:

    All of the award guns GSSF puts out in an entire year does not match the number of guns Glock itself puts out the door in one 8-hour shift!

    In the greater scheme of things, GSSF is hardly a blip on the Glock radar.

    GSSF is an exercise in Advertising, Public Relations, and Customer support.

    As with all such activities, they are not a profit center. Any company does them for the sake of indirect benefits that are difficult to quantify.

    I guess Glock believes GSSF is worth it, otherwise they would have pulled the plug on it sometime during the 22 years GSSF has been doing matches. :dunno:

    I agree, GSSF is great for new shooters, but it also make those of us that shoot IDPA and USPSA better shooters.

    I give GSSF full credit for making me a better all-round shooter as it keeps me honest in the accuracy department.

    In disciplines like USPSA you can overcome poor accuracy, at least to a degree, by shooting faster.

    To win in GSSF you have to be accurate.

    I know this thread is a little old. But I thought I would chime in anyway. GSSF is the reason I bought my first glock. I love the format. Although I have had training in the military and have taken a tactical shooting course, when I am shooting for enjoyment I have no desire to run n gun and navigate an obstacle course, I just want to shoot. I also compete in a local indoor league. So to each his own. I support all of the shooting sports.
