    PM720 and myself will be staying the Phoenix area, and then heading down to shoot the match on Saturday. There's also a local Gun Show taking place that we figured we check out after the match to see how free the rest of the country really is.

    So....who else is going?
     

  2. Guess I'll miss this one. You two shoot well.

    So Scott... you ROing?? Bet you're the only Conyers vet there.

    I will be going. It will be my first. According to the Glock Report, it is one of the smaller in the country. I think that is surprising, given the culture down here. Maybe everyone here shoots XDs. I am really looking forward to it. I am gonna drag the wife down for support. Maybe I can get her to shoot it next year.

    Well, my Tucson is in the bag. Shot so so, personal best in Major Sub with a 66.98. It's amazing how much better it works when you knock ALL the plates down!! :embarassed: Shot a couple of 90's in AmCiv and Comp so nothing special there. 110 in HM and 116 in Sub. The best part of the day was getting to introduce my grandson to GSSF. He shot a 187.xx in AmCiv and even had one 7 second plate rack. He shot 4 divisions and really made me proud for his first time out! :supergrin:

    Now for the bad, while the RO's were ALL great they didn't seem to be following standard GSSF procedures. Scoresheets were stacked, no trees and the whole process seemed to take forever. We were there for about 6 hours. :frown: I guess it gave us more time to meet some really great people though. The cool part was one of the locals brought out a G18 and let a few people run it a bit. I missed out but 1Roundeye got to run a few rounds through it. :tongueout::supergrin: Anyway, like they say, better than the best day working!! :supergrin:

    5toG was the same setup as Conyers and M was the pretty standard far, near, near, far with 3 poppers in a sort of triangle layout. My first experience with a forward falling popper, interesting. I should post up some videos as soon as I can get them uploaded.

    Scott, Congrats on the Major Sub and to your Grandson's first time out. As far as the GSSF procedures, do you happen to know who the GSSF Match Director was? Would have been interesting to know if those things were covered in the RO briefing. Look forward to the videos!

    I'm not sure. The only GSSF official I recognized was Cindy. :dunno:
