Tells us about your day!
It turned to be nice and sunny!
Well first of all DTOM has a new lady friend that handles a GLOCK pretty darn GOOD! He claims she totes his gun bag but the way she shoots, he needs to carry HER bag!!!
We did have a great day!! Weather turned off VERY nice and the new rules and the new "M" stage is proving to be a good thing! We met alot of new shooters and a great group from "Team Shooters Lobby"
As always Skip and his crew of RO's did an OUTSTANDING job today! Thanks Ladies and Gentleman!! The GSSF "A" team was in charge and the new regestration and sign up procedures went really smoothly!
We ALL had a great time and did really well shooting. Pharoah, Don At PC BOTH broke the 100 mark today!! Congrats to both my fellow teammates on there great shooting!
This was the start of my third year in GSSF and this was the best match of any that I've attended so far. The squadding system worked really well and the RO's kept things running smoothly by following it. The new low ready seems faster, the new Glock M is a blast to shoot and the new score sheets worked well! The weather even cooperated!
I've been pretty nuetral about the GSSF administration in the past. I never really criticized them, but I never praised them much either. Now I have to give them some credit. The changes they've put in place have made things smoother and made the sport much better.
One thing that does merit a mention. The new score sheets are good and I like them, but you have to keep track of your scores and watch what is written down. By keeping an eye on my sheets I saved myself from getting 22 extra penalty points that I wasn't supposed to get. I'm not complaining about it, errors happen and nobody is perfect. I'm just mentioning it so other shooters can keep it from happening to them.
My previous high score was an 84 at Statesville last year. I beat that in all five categories that I shot today. The new penalty structure and Glock M definitely made a big difference in my scores.
I also met Fireglock and ltgibson2001. It was good meeting you both!
Great match Great weather. RO's did an outstanding job. Thanks to all for a great job. I like the new scoring system, carbonless score sheets and the Glock "M" setup. I did have one BIG surprise when turning in "Team Sheets" that there is now a $10 fee per "Team Entry";orry GSSF crew but I just finished all that you have posted and it sure doesn't say that in any area that I have found. I would surely like to see you post a reference where I could find this new rule. I have not found anyone yet who was aware of it or knows where it is posted. It's not the amount; it's knowing up front what to expect.
So there is some possitive and negative feedback, gotta keep it balanced.
As for DTOM's gun bag carrier; I didn't see a wooden leg anywhere, whats up Scotty?;f
All in all a great day, shot my best match ever and feel pretty happy. See'ya at Richmond.
I've been a GSSF member for a long time, but this was my very first match ever . I brought 2 new GSSF members to shoot with me. Oh, no!! I have spread the infection!!!
Our scores completely sucked, but we had a great time! Damn those plates! They just sit there, all upright and white. Taunting me like I just peed my pants. I'll get 'em next year. Then we'll see who taunts who!
The range layout was nice. The RO's were super helpful, and didn't laugh at me too much. (well, maybe a couple times, but that was ok) A bunch of really nice folks!
We got through the stages at a good pace. We rarely had to wait, and it was fun to watch the others shoot anyhow. We learned from them what we should do, go at a slow enough pace to shoot well...
...and they we heard that buzzer, and BANG, BANG, BANG, BANG, BANG, BANG - as fast as we could pull the trigger. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!!!!!!!!! ;J ;I
My buddy got a couple of new springs and followers for his G19 mags. Thanks, Glock Armorers!
One question - don't they have any road gravel in Anderson, South Carolina? I know they have red clay mud, but I gotta think that there's some gravel SOMEWHERE in the state.
It was a good day, and we'll be back next year. With mud boots, and (hopefully) with a little more trigger finger discipline.
This was my first GSSF match and I was impressed at how smoothly things ran. There were 319 shooters signed in when I left around 3PM. I worked as an RO for "5 to Glock" and it helped me get a good feel for things.
Unfortunately they asked me to shoot first before working and I rushed myself a bit before I really understood the layouts, but all in all I figure I did fairly well for the first time out.... no misses! ;f
LOL... yeah, there's gravel around, but you have to pay for it. That's why most of us have 4WD. ;z
Talk about having fun. The weather was as close to perfect as one can get. The morning was cool with wind by the afternoon it had warmed up and the wind was gone.
The new squading worked great. The new score sheets as it was said you have to watch. Errors can be made but all in all it was faster.
Hope all have fun. I did.
Well, I see where Ms. Pat & I stand, we where never introduced!
Arrived about 8:30 and was completed shooting about 10AM.
Think Ms Pat has out shot herself today though she faulted on the last run on the plates.
Enjoyed having the "M" closer as my eyes aren't what they used to be and had a heck of a time keeping ahead of Pat!
RO's did a great job in my esimation though one had me point my 23 at the table while waiting for the start signal.
Can't complain about the mud, just got done playing in it with the jeep all last weekend during that rain spell. Think the members did a good job with the drainage too under the circumstances.
Congratulations to our friends & teammates, Don, Dan & Pete on some fine shooting! Sounds like some had personal bests! Hope Jerry, Bob, Al & the others did well, also. Can't leave out that guy with two N's, either!! Or Scotty & his friend!! Or Coach & wife!! (Guess Bobby is saving his sub-40 post until after everyone is done ) Glad the weather behaved for y'all. Just got through checking out the Fri. & Sat. dinner photos; looks like a great time was had by all! Sure wish we could've been there. Tell everyone we said hello & congrats, travel safe & we'll see y'all down the road, hopefully soon!! Take care, Tony & Donna.
was a great day and got to meet the guys from glock talk.
there a great bunch of folks.
You guys were all awesome! Glad we had the chance to meet, and look forward to seeing you all again!
Shot like crap.Had loads of fun and met alot great people! I'll take the fun and new friends any day over great shooting.Shoot Safe Shoot Often,Ken
Finally,..brought a new shooter into GSSF (HA). Who would figure that he would be an artilleryman.
This was my funnest match yet! Had a great time.
Was good to be back home with the GSSF crew, after being away for a while.
Thanks to Danny for inviting me to shoot w/the Ameriglo team. What an exceptional bunch of people.
Thanks to Rick also. I think I fell in love w/the ghost ring sights. Gonna have to put an order in and shoot them in MU and use them for carry on my 20C. Talk about fast acquisition...I'm there.
Also picked me up a new camo team glock hat..which should go pretty good w/my next deployment (HA).
Thanks to all the ROs. Did a great job and I really appreciated what you do. Thanks also to Chris and Vicky @ GSSF.
I had a GREAT time!!! ;f ;f ;f Spent the weekend with my very good friends (Jeff82 & family), we shot Saturday in nice weather. Met most of the Florida gang & DannyR....nice bunch of guys I might add!!! The new format worked well....much smoother than my first match last year in Statesville. ;f Hopefully I will get to make the Richmond match! ;f
Just got home from Anderson (I ROed this weekend). Glad to hear so many positive comments! I thought you might be interested to know that we ran 405 shooters through this weekend. Scott says the average is only 257 and we beat that on Saturday. He went on to say that they he thinks they have only exceeded 400 three times in GSSF history (I assume that he meant outside of Conyers but...).
I too think the scoresheet copies are great but I got so wrapped up in shooting this afternoon that I forgot to write the category on my sheets! I am sitting here kicking myself; the only one I can score is Major Sub! I really feel silly because I wrote the category on most of the multiple entires that I processed at the plate rack but forgot all about it when I got behind the trigger. Must have been all the lead in the air!;f
Good Match, as most are... The RO's did a fine job as they always do at Anderson, Thanks Ladies & Gentlemen!!! Didnt do to bad, but should have done better. Can't really gage what a good score is now with the changes, I guess we will have to wait and see when the results are posted. ;c ;c
My first time shooting Anderson and it was terrific!
I want to thank the host club MD and ROs for being so friendly and accommodating. The new sign-in procedure worked great and the carbonless scoresheets made shooting the match even more enjoyable. The weather was fantastic too.
It was a "blast from the past" seeing Vicki, Scott, and Chris working the match.
To Team AmeriGlo, Coach and Rick: our first match couldn't have been better! Hope to see many of your at Richmond.
To my friends on Team Carver Mount: it was nice to see each of you this weekend and good shootin'!
Cheers ;c ;c ;c to everyone associated with this match... it was truly a great weekend for me.
PS - I called GJM89 around 20:00 hours tonight... he and Gene still had 4+ hours to drive... two of the most dedicated GSSF shooters on the planet!
This was my first competition since having a heart attack on October 27, 2004, and I had a wonderful time, as did my lovely wife Vickie. I had to go slow and got exhausted quickly. Hope to do better physically at Richmond.
Best part of the match was the fellowship Friday night, Saturday at the match, Saturday night and Sunday at the match. It was so nice to see my old friends and make a few new ones. Bonus for me was finally getting to meet "Terminator" and his pretty wife Paula, and "Mike From Philly."
Team AmeriGlo made their first GSSF appearance, and I thank all my teammates that made the trip to Anderson, SC, and Rick Callahan of AmeriGlo. Our turnout of 13, possibly 15 was impressive, and we shot quite well in all three Team Categories.
I shot fair, have shot better and will shoot better in Richmond, VA. My new G38 was a joy to shoot.
The Skip-J RO's were the best ever, anywhere, in my 6 years of shooting GSSF. Shooter flow was very smooth on Saturday, especially when you consider 372 shooters completed the three stages that day.
I thank the GSSF Staff for the improvements made for the new season, and the Skip-J RO's for their dedicated efforts to provide us a great weekend of shooting.
Thank you Gaston and Robert Glock, for giving us the game called GSSF.
The 735 mile round trip did wear me out.
On to Richmond, VA with wife Vickie and daughter Sally.
I am visiting my Mom and Dad today in the SC Lowcountry as dad celebrates 81 years young.
Sunday saw me arrive at Anderson a little after 12 noon and I ran through my catagories in record time. Weather was spectacular and the mud boots stayed in the car.
The RO's took care of me and the limited numbers allowed me to shoot three at a time and move on.
The new scoring helped me out since I still managed the occasional C and D hits. Whats that famouse saying..."Wait til next year!"
My only issue with the new format was the great scoring sheets and labels. One stage put my entry number and gun model on the sheets the other two stages did not and at the car when adding up I had to backtrack and find the originals to keep the scores current. Something for me to check next time when I initial the sheet.
By the way...my last entry # was 411 and I believe I saw a 416 on the score sheets. The new format must have worked really well to get that many shooters through the ringer and keep'em happy. Of course I feel for the GSSF crew when they get back to Atlanta. What a lot of paper to deal with!
I am hoping to do Statesville and Conyers with a request in to my chief financial officer for Richmond. Jacksonville and Orlando are a given with them being in my back yard. We will see how it goes.
I have to start off by saying "WOW!!!" WHAT A GREAT WEEKEND. I finally had the great honor to meet Coach "DannyR" and his lovely wife Vicky, FireGlock, DEJ/FL, Don, Pharoah, rayray, Glenn with 2 N's, Gene, Ron, james, Mark and Teresa, and many many more that i cant remember names of right now. My head is still spinning. My apologies, but i know all of your faces now, and look forward to seeing you all many many more times in the future. ^5
The match went great, the fellas form the Skip J range, and the GSSF crew had things running as smooth as glass. The paper score was great IMO and allowed us to keep up with our progress. Nice job guys.
The weather was beautful, and the range was well layed out. The only negative was all of the red mudd "grrrrrrr", but not really a problem.
All in all it was the best time ive had for a very long time. I shot well, but not my best. I will do better in Richmond, but had a great time anyway. I had the great pleasure of shooting alondside Team AmeriGlo, and i have to say what a great bunch of guys. It was truly an honor.
For those that havent been to a match before, you dont know what your missing.
Coach, YOU DA MAN!
