    I was very stoked to learn that a local range does the GSSF Indoor Series, and it is starting anew in July!

    So I will now be able to shoot them regularly...

    I do IDPA now, but these are different, and do not require a holster, etc. it seems.

    What about extended mag and slide releases, problem? I understand these are supposed to be "stock" guns.

    Woohoo, see you there! ;-)

    Extended mag and slide stop levers are of no use in the GSSF Indoor Series. If your pistols are fitted with them, they do not represent a competitive advantage. There is no drawing from a holster and there are no speed reloads in any GSSF competition.

    The indoor series is 5 or 6 strings of fire, 50 shots total within a given time frame, usually 15 seconds per string. Each string of fire is timed separately. Example of the classic set-up that I use is:

    10 rounds @ 12.5ft, 15 seconds
    10 rounds @ 25 feet, 15 seconds
    5 rounds @ 25 feet, 15 seconds

    Change Targets

    5 rounds @ 50 feet, 15 seconds
    10 rounds @ 50 feet, 15 seconds
    10 rounds @ 75 feet, 30 seconds

    Perfect score is 500 points with 50 X's.

    The host range may choose from several GSSF authorized courses of fire.

    Just tombstone type stationary targets right, like so...?

    So is it scored on how tight the group is?

    Indoor series uses heave paper stationary D-1 targets.

    4in circle (X-Ring) counts 10 points per hit
    8in Circle *B-Ring) counts 10 points per hit
    12in Circle (C-Ring) counts 8 points per hit
    Rest of target (D's) count 5 points per hit
    Hits outside Black outline and misses count 0 points.

    Outdoor matches use heavy cardboard stationary D-1's

    4in circle = zero penalty points
    8in circle = zero penalty point
    12in circle = 1 penalty point
    rest of target = 3 penalty points
    misses = 10 penalty points

    steel left standing = 10 penalty points

    So, is it score only with par time or is time factored into the score? If 2 shooters score 500, do you look at quickest time to determine winner?

    Speed does not count, but there is a penalty for exceeding the time allowance. You start on the first buzzer and stop on the second buzzer. Ties are broken by the number of X's. Final match score is the averages score based on two matches. If you shoot all three matches, it's the average of the best two matches.

    So...a tie score regardless of whether from the average of only shooting 2 matches or the average of the best 2 of 3 matches shot is....a tie?

    X hits work as the tiebreak. I imagine an absolute tie is possible but I haven't heard of it yet.

    If two competitors end up with the same average score of 500 and the same number of X-hits, then there is truly a tie for first place. An additional First Place A-Class plaque would be ordered.

    "What-if" there is a tie for first in a Division in an outdoor match - 2 gun wins?? :shocked:

    Let's let GSSF decide on that if it ever happens. I would think it highly improbable.

    "What if" games tire me.
