    OK, after some thinking while calculating the winner on the most improved shooter thread, I realized that the only consistent stage in the various GSSF matches was Glock the Plates, so.............
    We will again use a calendar year (using the 1st match of 2012 as a stating point) for the competition and the following rules will apply.

    1-Amatuers only (Civ or Guardian) This should ensure a fairly consistent playing field gunwise.
    2-Shoot a minimum of 3 matches
    2a- we only count your plate scores
    2b- we take your best 3 scores
    3- lowest total score wins.

    We can post running scores and make this a long thread or you can keep it on the QT and we will start gathering scores near the end of the year. I kind of like the ever changing leader board and a long thread, but I will let you guys (and gals) decide.

    For you master shooters, maybe I can come up with something different :whistling: Maybe least penalties or something but don't hold your breath.

    Also, let me take the time to thank Greg for his donation of a holster and mag pouch combo for this new competition. Y'all check out his stuff at and keep an eye out for the announcement of the winner of the Most Improved Shooter award in the other thread.

    Good luck to anyone participating.

    Is it "most improved" plate rack score or simply the lowest plate rack score?

    How does one "enter"?

    Anyone meeting the Amatuer qualification and shooting the required number of matches (3) in the required categories (am civ/am guardian) can submit their 3 best Glock the Plates scores for the calendar year. Lowest combined score wins. If your first 3 matches were 18.05, 19.10 and 20.25, you can submit them and then in the interest of thread continuation, you could come back and update your scores after match 4 when you shot a 13.11. Your new submission would be 13.11, 18.05 and 19.10.

    The other way would be for competitors to wait and submit their best 3 at the end of the year; that might add to the suspense, but would shorten the thread. We might even have a combination of both with people submitting scores as they come in and a sleeper waiting until the end of the year. :faint:

    Either way, we will use the best 3 scores of the 3+ you submit.

    OK, how about this.
    For those of you interested in posting your scores throughout the year, post them in this thread in this manner. Ex:

    Griffin GA 2012- 15.23
    Thibodaux, LA 2012- 18.06

    You can come back in and edit your scores as they become available and we won't have to sort through as many entries.

    Also, please feel free to let other GSSF folks know about this contest. The more the merrier.

    If in the event you obtain master status, only matches before your promotion will count. Anyone amatuer shooter determined to meet master status per GSSF rules will not be eligible, i.e. top 10 finisher in Steel Challenge, etc...

    I'm ordering a appendix holster from them any way. But another (Possibly FREE) would be a good thing.

    1. Griffin-16.01

    2. Dawsonville-18.09

    3. Columbia-


    Got bumped to master after Dawsonville, so much for my Columbia, Conyers and Charleston scores.

    Quick question. Do you just need to be an AM competitor and you post up your best score at the match, or do you need to post up your best score from that category?

    For example: I shoot both AM Civ and Comp with the same G23. If I did better with my Comp entry on the plates can I post that score, or does it need to be the score from my AM entry?
