    This was my first outdoor GSSF match. I showed up about 2:00 and had finished shooting by 3:15. (I only entered 1 division because I wasn't sure what to expect) The lines were short and moved quickly. The RO's were very helpful. I will definitely do this again. Hopefully, my scores will improve.

    I did not shoot in any of the side matches or warm-ups. I will next time. The weather was perfect. I didn't get any pictures.

    wish i could of made it, but i needed to get moving towards home. this makes the 6th weekend we've been traveling out of 7. wish i could of spent more time with my friends but it's always great to see them at the range. i had a great time as always, but missed out on seeing a few friends that i usually see at the range. i've ROed a good bit the last few years and gave out more procedurals saturday than i have until then.

    Bob and I are back home after shooting yesterday. (Saturday) I had forgotten to pre-register, so we stood in line to sign up for quite a while, but after that everything moved quickly.

    Took us only @ an hour to shoot the whole match, the crowd was very light. Figured everyone was at the football game and Sunday would be the busy day.

    Neither of us did well, but we haven't been practicing like we should. Had a fun time, great to see some of the 'old gang', and we missed those of you who couldn't make it. The weather was PERFECT!! The RO's were helpful and efficient.

    We plan on being at Lexington, hope to see more of the 'gang' there!

    Hello folks, I made it to a GSSF match! Been a long time since I made it to one. I really want to thank all that made my daughter feel welcomed, she had a great time and wants to shoot another match she said. It was nice seeing Dan, I hope to make it to the match coming up in Florida.

    This was my first outdoor match. I did one indoor league match a couple of years ago.

    I didn't do nearly as well as I thought I would. All in all though it was really fun. Got my 9 year old Glock 23 check out and upgraded at the Armorers area.

    The coolest part was the IPSC side match. I've never done that before. I think I was wearing a stupid grin on my face for about 20 minutes afterwards.

    There were about 340 entries on Saturday and another 210 on Sunday so the net match total will be somewhere around 550.

    If that number holds, that will make this the second biggest GSSF match ever held. The biggest being the 2000 Conyers match at 560.

    Please make note of the comments to the effect that it looked like it was "lightly attended". The match went THAT smoothly despite the numbers of entries serviced.

    Thanks to all the ROs who made it the success it was.

    Thanks to the shooters who showed up as well!

    :supergrin:

    If that was Fred from Warranty Svc in Smyrna that's good to hear. He's always helpful on the phone (entertaining as well) and one of those Glock 'docs' who's seen as many or more 'patients' than most out there.

    What a great weekend! It is wonderful to hear that the numbers were up because you would not have know it from the lines of people waiting to shoot. There were none!! At least I never encountered a wait. Hats off to the ROs for such a smooth and relaxed match!

    We had absolutely perfect weather the entire weekend. My whole family came down this year with me in our little plane "Glockair" and we never saw a cloud from Northern Kentucky to Atlanta. My two youngest boys, Hayden and Dean spent Saturday with me at the range. Hayden stayed at the Glock M all day pasting targets while Dean followed me around working each stage. There is a picture of the three of us above. Hayden is wearing the Alcatraz shirt while Dean is wearing one that says "Junior Federal Agent". That pretty well fits their personalities! (Just kidding, they're both great kids).

    They really enjoyed the side events that Glock hosted in the Cowtown. And the IPSC side shoot was a blast. Also, thanks to the armorers for replacing a number of worn or dated parts in my G-26 and G-17.

    As always it was good to catch up with my teammates and friends who I get to see all too, infrequently. What a good dinner we had Saturday night.

    Looking forward to Lexington in a few weeks. Hope to see everyone there. Again, thanks GSSF for another perfect match!!!

    It was a great weekend, it must have been because this old man is still "POOPED". My shooting left a lot to be desired in general but it did have some highlites. I was fortunate enough to shoot my very first "All Clean Match". I shot it in UL with my new comped G17 UL Glock. First match with it , hope this is signs of more good things to come. It wasn't the best score I ever shot in UL but it was my first clean match in any category. All the stars must have been perfectly aligned.

    Was sure great getting back on the range after 5 months off with a bum shoulder. Thoroughly enjoyed seeing old and new friends. Hats off to the RO's, GSSF Staff and all the good hard working folks that pulled off an exciting match. A special Thanks to Cindy who was able to get the prelims posted so fast especially in her current condition. Y'al need to be a little more gentle with her.:wavey:

    Thanks all and hope to see many of you at Lubbock in about 3 weeks and Lexington in about 4 weeks.

    Don

    Congrats!
