    I've been ONLY using my G35 at all the GSSF matches, because that's MY competition gun. Now that I've accumulated a couple more Glocks: G17, G27 and G23...

    What match categories can I apply for the next match?

    On the GSSF registration form:

    I see...
    Amateur Civilian, using 17
    Amateur Subcompact, using 27
    Amateur Competition, using 35
    Master Stock, using 23.

    Is that correct? Do you guys use multiple Glocks at GSSF? Which categories do you guys participate in?

    Thanks for reading.

    I have shot all the Glocks you have mentioned and then some in outdoor GSSF Matches over the past 11 years. My all out favorite and best score was when I shot an Unlimited G37, and a stock G37 in AmCiv, Competition, and Master Stock. After the prices for .45gap reloading components and availability got discouraging I switched to all 9mm. For the last 2 years I shoot a G17C in Unlimited, stock G19 in AmCiv, Master Stock and Competition and a stock G26 in SubCompact. I have been very happy with this combination. I am not a Master Class Shooter but it's NOT because of my ammo or choice of Glocks. Brass and all reloading components are readily available and more reasonably priced than .40's or .45's. I try to keep the feel(size of gun), ammo(felt recoil) and all other varibles as constant as possible.

    If it was ME with your Glocks I do:
    Amateur Civ 17
    Amateur Sub 27
    Amateur Comp 17 maybe 35
    Master Stock 17 good luck in this class

    It's great to get some competition trigger time, but I would definitely not be swapping pistols more than necessary.

    A 17 and a 26 are all I use.

    I appreciate your inputs guys. Yeah, that's why I picked up the G17 for ammo and financial affordability.

    MrVvrroomm-Thanks for the recommendation. Too bad I can't circle more than one Glock on the Amateur Civi, to include the 17, 23 and 27...or can I?

    No... you can only shoot a particular class once per match.

    No, but for consistency's sake you could use your 27 for all of the classes you have listed.

    i shoot them all with a 17 and 30, actually a pair of 17s. for me transitions are quicker with the standard size guns than the long slides. if i were you shooting as an amature i'd do it this way:

    G17 Master Stock as a warm up to AmCiv or AmGuard with G17
    G17 Unlimited as a warm up to AmComp with G17
    G27 AmSub

    if you had a G29, G30, or G39 I'd shoot MSub as a warm up to Sub with the same gun.
