I always thought Pistols were given out as first place in a division (assuming enough entries to qualify). I was looking at the Morganton results, comparing Amateur Civilian against Competition Divisions.

In the Competition Division, I see the guy with the lowest score receiving a $100.00 place award. The 3rd guy got a pistol place, and the 11th guy got a pistol place (I assume the 3rd place guy was the Master level, and the 11th guy was the Amateur?)

Can somebody explain this to me?

What I was doing, was trying to see if it made more sense for me to shoot Amateur Civilian first or Competition. I'd ASSUMED that I should shoot Competition first to "warm up" for Civilian, but the Morganton results look opposite. For example, 3rd place in Civilian shot 73.74, but the way I'm interpreting the Comp. Division, 3rd place amateur shot 77.02. So I'd have been closer to placing in Competition that Civilian. Granted... I only shot 90 and change, but that was my first time out, and I've been practicing a LOT since then.

Appreciate any insight.

Masters may only win 1 pistol per match. After a 3rd 1st place pistol win, Amateurs are promoted to Master.

At Morganton, both 1st place finisher David Knight and 2nd Place finisher Mike Ross won pistols in other Master categories. Amateur John Nash won his 3rd pistol in Amateur Competition Category and was therefore noted as a Master for future reference.

Hats off to all three. I'm just hoping to improve. This GSSF stuff is addicting. If I could get more time off and had more cash I would show up everywhere I could. Not to mention upgrading to lifetime membership.

I know... Grasshopper, one thing at a time. :)

Thanks for the explanation Danny... that makes sense now.

I think I was under the same impression...

This actually led me to NOT REALIZE I won a pistol in Knoxville!

The prelims went up a day or two later, I seen that I 9th (I believe) in both Guardian and SubCompact.

RATS (I thought). I was just waiting to see if I won a gun or prize by random drawing when the results went final. When they DID go final, I found that "NINTH" in SubCompact still allowed me to win, as I am not a Master (I guess I'm on the right track here?) and 1-8 (and more interdispersed below me) had asterisks, so I'm ASSUMING they were masters (?)

ANYWAY...it WAS Cuuuuuuulllllll!

Yes, the asterisk indicates "Master."
