Summer provides a lot of opportunity to do things out of doors and what better thing is there to do than enjoy some low key competition with your fellow GlockTalkers? We had a lot of fun last year and some changes have been made in order to make the league available to more GlockTalkers. The 2005 league will be open to those using centerfire handguns and rifles in addition to the rimfires which we used last year. We're also adding different stages of competition from open high score wins, to a class system where you'll be placed with other shooters at your ability level. That's how most shooting sports are organized and there's no reason why we shouldn't be. There will also be two or more forms of team competition if participation warrants it, one of these will allow you to pick your own team and competed head to head for the bragging rights on GlockTalk. Specifics are still working out but I've posted the basic rules below so that you can get an idea of what will be needed and also give you time to get some targets by the time the league begins on May 1. Over the next few weeks I'll fill you in on everything we'll have going on and have posted a cut & paste entry form after the rules in the next post. The targets I've selected can be found at, or ordered by, your local sporting goods or gun store. Hoppes makes all of them and they are also available online at http://www.pistoleer.com and other places. Feel free to join either the Rifle Event, Handgun Event, or both if you've got plenty of time to shoot. 100 targets will be more than enough and shouldn't cost more than a couple of sawbucks. That's it for now but if you have any questions please feel free to either email me firstname.lastname@example.org or ask here and I'll do my best to answer them as quickly as possible. In the meantime please read the outline of the league rules in the post below this one. Stay safe, Gary PS - The league costs nothing to join and is not being run by Eric or the GlockTalk staff so please don't direct your questions to them as they've got enough to do already around here.
