    I'm a new shooter, and interested in trying a GSSF match when one is in my area in September. I've looked at the information available on-line but still have some questions as to how the event runs.

    Seems like the targets are 8 inch circular steel targets, at a range from 5 to 15 yards. Is that correct?

    Is the idea to take one shot at each target, in as short a time as possible, or is there no time limit? I thought I read that you take one shot at each of 5 or 6 targets, and you're penalized for each miss. Don't know if time enters into it.

    A simple explaination would be appreciated.

    Looking forward to the event...

    Shooting a stock G-19.

    There are three stages.


    Plates are the 8 inch metal targets you asked about.
    There are 6 of them on a Rack.
    The stage is 4 racks.
    You may load 11 rounds.
    You shoot them as smoothly as you can.
    They are at a fixed distance 11 yards.
    Your score is the amount of time you took to shoot all 4 racks + 10 points (ten second penalty) for each plate left standing. If you were to load and shoot more than the allowed number of bullets each one would add 10 points.

    If the range is using the paper option, there are 6 paper targets instead of the plates that you fire 6 rounds at one each. The size of the ring (C) that you must be inside of is larger than the plate but since there is only one shot for each target you Must be accurate.

    Speed is good BUT you can cost yourself more by leaving plates standing.

    You can NOT miss fast enough to win.

    Five to Glock

    Five paper targets are set up at distances from 5 to 25 yards.
    The 25 yard target is directly in front of you.
    The 5 and 15 yard targets are to the left side of it.
    The 10 and 20 yard target to the right of the 25 yard target.

    You load 10 rounds. You shoot each of the targets twice..
    You do this three times.
    There are rings on the target A,B,C and the rest of the target is D a miss is M.

    Hits inside the A or B rings do not add extra points to your time.
    C adds 1point.
    D adds 3points
    M adds 10
    Shooting more that 10 rounds add 10 points each.

    The M

    There are 4 paper targets.
    2 are at 7 yds.
    2 are at 15 yds
    There are 1 or 3 metal poppers at 11 yds. (If it is windy 1 will be set up and locked)
    You shoot each paper target 2 times and One popper (only) must be knocked down for each round. (if only 1 is set up you just hit, and ring it) Knocking down more that 1 in a round is a 10 point penalty.
    You do this three times.
    The paper is scored like in the Five to Glock.
    There is an all paper option where the Popper is a paper target and you just have to hit it.

    You score is the total from all 3 stages added together.

    All of this is for outdoor GSSF events.
    From your question I think that is what you were asking about.
    Indoor doesn't use plates.

    On the GSSF web sight there are pictures under Course descriptions.
