I shot in GSSF indoor matches for a couple of years and the highest I got was a 496. Then I went to a graveyard shift and couldn't participate in the matches for 3 years.

Now I'm back on Swings and off by 11 pm, so started going to the nearest match, about 50 miles away.

Happy to have my first match in 3 years yield a 496 in Unlimited with a G35 and a Timney trigger.

However, I have never gotten the coveted 500. Normally shoot in the high 400's.

There is a guy that shows up at my matches that gets a 500 nearly every time. It's amazing! I think only a couple of guys have gotten the perfect 500 at my range.

Curious as to how many folks here have gotten it.

I like to think that if you can get 500's, then you are a pretty darn good shot, by any measure.

Which is helpful when someone says they are a good shot, but has never competed against other shooters. When someone says they are a good shot, and follows it up with a 500 club patch, then you know for certain that they are one.

Another indoor match today and another failed attempt at a 500. 489 with my G23 stock and a 474 with my G35 unlimited. Was doing great with the G35 until the 25 yard line, then shot a few low and left. Rookie mistake.

Still, got to spend a couple of hours with some great guys and talk about guns and motorcycles.

The two top shooters both shot 500's and it came down to counting X's. 48 for one and 46 for the other. Crazy good shooters!
