    I was reading the insructions for the GSSF matches and it states that you can run 10 +1 rounds in your gun. How do you folks load this. i.e. What is the safe way to load one in the chamber plus a full mag?

    Three ways:

    1.. Use high capacity mags.

    2.. Load a 10 round mag, chamber a round, remove and top off the mag.

    3.. Keep a "stripper mag" in your pocket. Load the stripper mag, chamber one round, remove the stripper mag and put it back in your pocket, then load a 10 round mag into your pistol. You only need 11 rounds if you miss some steel. You may only fire 2 rounds at each cardboard target. 5 To Glock is a 10 round limit. Glock M is a 9 round stage, plus 2 extra rounds if you miss the steel. The plates are a 6 rounds stage, plu 5 extra rounds if you miss the plates.

    You have time inbetween strings if you need to reload mags.

    The moral to the story--you just knew one was coming--DON"T MISS!;)

    Option 3 looks best to me. I think I will load 11 just in case I miss ;g .

    Good choice. That is the way most shooters do it. I only load 10 rounds for the 5 to Glock so I don't have to worry about rounds count since any more than 6 hits on any target is a 10 second penality. I use a stripper and load 10 + 1 for the "M" and Plates. I know some who load 10 + 1 even for the 5 to Glock in case of a malfunction.
