    So, anybody that went to Orlando going to be going to Benning?
    I will be there hoping to improve on my poor showing at Orlando.

    I would imagine you'll see several folks from the Orlando match at Ft. Benning. ;)

    I am planning on being there, probably Saturday. Waiting to see if my class has changed before I send in my registration form. I won my third gun in Orlando (assuming the preliminary scores hold up) and looks like I'll be going to Master classes only. Which brings up a question:
    Did they begin counting for the three gun rule after they put that rule into effect, or did they begin counting from the beginning? My first gun was won before the rule went into effect.

    They don't let any of them slip. :) You're in with the rest of us now, the shark pool has become especially vicious here lately! ;)

    I figured as much. I guess I'm gonna have to get me a gun that I can strap one of those Carver/C-more things onto and try my hand at that. :supergrin:

    TruckCop,

    If you need any assistance with your UL gun, let me know how I can help. We welcome everyone to the Master Class.

    Regards,
    Bobby

    Tim and I (Roger) from Orlando are planning to go to Fort Benning for our first out of state event. Anyone know of a hotel close to the range there?
    thanks,

    I was clipped mid-match, the AmCiv win made me a Master and the Comp pistol went to someone else. I don't believe I'm the only one that's been down that road either. ;)

    ok, i had two wins and then swept a match last year winning all 3 amature classes plus a 3rd place finish in UL. i got my third 1st place pistol for AmCiv and the 2nd place prize for Comp and Sub and the 2nd place winners got the 1st place guns. i had already preregistered for all 6 classes at another match, or two, so i called donna to see if i was allowed to shoot as an amature since the finials wouldn't be posted before the next match. she said no and i applied the extra entry fee toward another match.

    As a spectator to get a feel for the event. Anyone know how far it is from Jacksonville, FL. I have driven the route before and can't seem to remember.

    It's a 3 hour drive from Tallahassee and about 2.5 hours from TLH to JAX, depending on where you start from in Jax, so you're looking about 5-6 hours total.

    If you're going to make that trip, you might as well bring guns. That's a long drive just to watch.

    I've got to get a gun to put it on first. I shoot a 2nd generation 19 without rails and a 36 in major sub.

    If you're going to be at Ft. Benning, bring it along and I'll take a look.

    I'm probably going to latch on to someone at Benning who has such a rig and beg them to let me try it out on the side match range.

    Didn't realize it was that far away. I thought it was much closer. Nix that idea then.

    Prepare to be spoiled. I'm sure there are several who will let you try an Unlimited or two. Why I might even let you try Blue, it spoiled me, might as well let it spoil you too. :)

    I wasn't in Orlando, but I'm ready to see Ft. Benning again!

    If you are going to Benning, make sure to go to http://gssfonline.com/ to read up on it and get the forms to fill out and take with you!
