    i hope i am posintg this in the proper place...if not, please feel free to relocate my topic if i am wrong

    i have a stock glock19 and i want to participate in gssf - never competed before so sounds like something new to do.

    besides my glock (obviously) do i need a particular type of holster?

    i have only my bianchi owb that i use for carry, can i / should i use that?

    any advice, comments, suggestions or pointing me to knowledge would be appreciated.

    TIA!

    Your's is OK, but a holster is not required: Glock box or bag will do

    If you holster, the slide will have to be open until you're under the command of the range officer and are allowed to load and make ready.

    Check out complete info here: http://www.gssfonline.com/

    Thanks BayouSlide.
    Sounds like going to one will help understand procedures. I've been to the GSSFonline site, it's a little frustrating, forums are much better.

    Q: Glock box or bag?
    you mean just my range bag? or the box the piece came in?

    You may carry your unloaded Glock to the firing line in a range bag or Glock box, or you may carry in in a holster with the slide locked open. Most experienced GSSF shooters carry their Glocks in a range bag. It helps to have four magazines loaded before you get to the line. You may lay your magazines out on the shooting table, but do lot load your Glock until instructed to do so.

    While I was out at the range, look's like Danny covered your question.

    Unfortunately, I know what you mean about the GSSFonline site...the best info is buried in the Glock Report Volume 1, which has all the rules. But it is confusing, it's changed over the last year and some competitions, like the Indoor League match series, are particularly poorly covered.

    I went to my first indoor league match this Saturday (had to drive 3 hours to get there, BTW) and I didn't fully get all the details until after the competitor briefing and Q&A, despite poring over all the info I could find on the GSSF site. The handout I received there finally filled in most of the blanks.

    Could be I'm just not that bright but I manage to puzzle my way through USPSA and Steel Challenge all right :clown:

    The mags so you don't hold up people while you reload.

    Ear and eye protection.

    The holster is fine if it holds the gun with it's slide locked back.

    When you get to each stage, watch it for a while and See what the web site description meant.

    It's fun easy and your 19 will work great.

    There is no drawing from the holster.

    As stated before the gun stays in the holster ,no mag, slide locked back until the Range Officer instructs you to: take a sight picture with an empty weapon or load and make ready.

    There are three stages.

    Plates



    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.
