    First - do XS big dot sights disqualify a gun?

    Second - do the tombstones have A,B,C,D zones like USPSA or do you just have to land hits on target?

    Third - Why isn't this more popular in Louisana? :(

    Gracias!

    Paul,

    Express sights disqualify a pistol from all but Unlimited/Masters Category. The D-1's have a-b-c rings. outside the c is "d." Photos of the tombstones and scoring rings are available at www.gssfonline.com but that site is down for maintenance today.

    There is a match in Shreveport every year.

    A and C sizes comperable to USPSA?

    Has anyone successfully disguised a 1911 as a Glock?

    Does ANYTHING other than factory sights - i.e. trijicon, mepro - disqualify you from stock?

    Paul, other than Unlimited (dominated by scopes) any sight of traditional post-notch design will work. Stock, Triji, Heinie Meps, Bo-Mars....check out the GSSF site and read through the GSSF Report posted there, it's the Ref edition (1st one each yr) and has ALL the rules, stages, etc. :)

    Not sure about the size comparison to the USPSA target, so I can't help you there.

    Any notch and post style sight is fine. So meps and trijicons are allowed.

    As for the 1911, don't even try to bring one of those antiquated boat anchors to a GSSF match. You will be beaten mercilessly and your expensive gun with a T stamped on it will be melted down in front of your battered and bleary eyes!

    All hail the Glock design!

    "A" ring is 4 inches in diameter, centered on the D-1.
    "B" ring is 8 inches in diameter.
    "C" ring is 12 inches in diameter.

    You have 6 shots at 25 yards, 18 shots at 20 yards, 6 shots at 15 yards, 18 shots at 10 yards and 6 shots at 5 yards on the D-1's. Poppers are set at 15 yards. Plates at 11 yards.

    Stock means only factory Glock parts allowed in Amateur categories with the following exceptions: Any notch & post sights except fiber optics, grip tape or sleeves OK, Pearce extended mag bases OK. All categories are amateur except Unlimited/Masters.

    That means no metal guide rods, non-factory springs, titanium strikers or plungers, Ghost rocket connectors, express sights, ghost rings, fiber optics or lasers. No physical frame modifications allowed.

    Most popular sights in GSSF are stock, Heinies and Bo-mars.

    Yeah.

    *Note to self, don't joke around with 1911 owners about 1911's, they have no sense of humor when it comes to there guns.*

    I was confused by the GSSF sight rules also. The rules state that any sight of a "partridge" style are OK, then cite that Trijicons, Meps are OK if they are "partridge" style. Does this mean that the standard 3 dot Trijicon/Meps are OK? I was going to be ordering a G17 soon and would like to use it for GSSF someday and want to know if I should get the standard 3 dot Trijicons, or just get the plain factory sights.

    the-bronze,

    Yes, Standard 3-dot Trij's and Meps tritium night sights are legal. They are considered standard notch and post.

    "Partridge" style refers to notch and post sights that have the undercut front site but as you look at the front site from the shooters perspective, they are still "notch and post".

    Partridge is a bird! Patridge is a sight!
