Check 'em out!
Congratulations to all the winners!
Another great job GSSF Staff; thanks for all your hard work and dedication.
Congratulations to all the winners. Statesville is just around the corner.
Someone tell me I'm dreaming, but I think I won a pistol, I'm #51 (entry 061) in amateur civilian, did I win a pistol?
Yeper my friend you are reading it correctly. These are only preliminary results. If they don't find any mistakes in the next couple weeks you will be the proud owner of a new Glock; Congratulations .
Woohoo I'm so excited, this was my first competitive shooting match of any kind, I've only been a Glock owner and shooter for about 9 months.
Can anyone explain the A,B,C groupings to me I don't quite understand how they decide who goes in which one, thanks.
GSSF uses the Lewis Prize allocation method for the Amateur Entries (Law and Civilian, and more at their discretion).
Take the total number of competitors, and divide by 3 (or more at GSSF discretion). The resulting number is rounded down to the nearest whole number, and that establishes the class. For example, 120 shooters, divide by 3, equals 40. A class is 1-40, B class is 41-80, C class is 81-120.
First through tenth place in each Class wins something (can go deeper if there are recomps, etc.).
Thanks for the info Roland. Obviously I like the Lewis system, however as my friend who didn't win a pistol pointed out, it's kind of just luck of the draw that I won a pistol, I just happened to place the right number, one number either way and I wouldn't have won the gun. I suppose there really isn't any other way to have prizes distributed to such a wide variety of shooters (by skill level) though.
For anything but A class, its rather dependent on how many shooters in that division, and a bit of luck (good or bad depending on how you look at it).
I've shot 3 GSSF matches, and the closest I have come to winning a gun was at Shelton, and I was 3.5 seconds too fast for 1st in B class. Obviously I would have been happier with my results had I been closer to the top of A class, but its an improvement over the previous matches I have shot.
My first match all that stood between me and a new glock were 3 pieces of steel that I left standing, 2 plates, and 1 popper.
Congrats on winning a gun!
Thanks for the congratulations, and thanks everyone for the info here it really made my first match easier in that I knew what to expect.
It's really a testament to how great these matches are for the beginner that a guy like me can go out and have a great time and win a new pistol (provided they don't change the results). I hope the matches are just as rewarding and enjoyable for you experienced guys. So thanks a million GSSF!
But where are the Statesville results? Oh, we haven't yet shot that match.;Q
Are you getting excited? Only 9 days but who's counting. ME
I'm excited about Statesville but frustrated that I have not been able to practice at all this week. Perhaps at 0730 tomorrow, weather permitting.
Well, I shot a little better than I thought, but not quite good enough. 9th B-Class, just under rtr (damn!, Congrats rtr!!!!).
Good time, though. Always a good time!!!!!!
You better calm down buddy, the Team doesn't need an excitable boy! ;f
Well I'll be darned! Looks like I might have won $75 in C, Am Civ. If I had known what I was doing, would been out of the money. This system is fun for beginners. I'll encourage others to try it at Greely next year. Congrats rtr.
Congrats Firecop and Cottonwood.
Speaking of congratulating Firecop and Cottonwood, how long does it usually take GSSF to send out the prizes?
Normally, after 5 business days, the results are considered final, at which time they are printed and mailed. It takes a few extra days for prize winners because checks and certificates then have to be prepared and approved.
Did you get to practice today Danny?
Practice went well. Ron and I will give it another try Monday morning.
