    Okay folks since this is a brand new match we are surely interested in hearing how you did, how you liked it and any pictures you would like to share with us. Most of us have not had the chance to get in your area and would be interested in hearing more about it.

    I shot on Sat AM and felt that they did a wonderful job. The stages were orderly and went smooth. The facility is top notch and well laid out. I will shoot there next year if they put it on again. Since the Coeur D'Alene,ID match went under, a 3 hr drive was not to bad to be able to get in a match at a beautiful range.Oh yea, the weather was sunny and around 75 to 80 ......This picture was taken by my 11 year daughter while I was shooting 5 to GLOCK. Great shot of the brass ......
    I shot the match with a combined time of 91.86 in AG with my G17

    TOULME;

    Cool picture, your daughter did a great job with the camera. Looks like you did some fine shooting. Hope to hear from some more folks with stories and pictures. I hear that is some beautiful country. Would like to hear what folks thought of the match, some idea as to how many attended, did you have steel or use the papper option and so on. Come on folks don't be bashful, those of us who couldn't travel that far would like to learn more.
    :)

    TOULME's daughter was a delight, handling that camera like a pro.

    I hope to get my daughter to a GSSF match one day.

    Mrs Glockin Steel and I took the 7 hr beautiful drive from Seattle to Missoula. We shot both Saturday and Sunday. Saturday started out about an hr late as this was their first GSSF match. There were approx 85 entrys as of 1200 on Sunday. So, it was a pretty light turnout. I would suggest to anyone, if they have the match again next year to put it on your calendar. Missoula is a beautiful place and the range is in a great place up against a mountain. Even though it was their first match they did a very good job with very little glitches as far as I could tell. The range officers were all warm and friendly. Almost all of them were asking what they could do to make the match better. One did say though.."We don't mind you visiting and spending your money here as long as you don't stay!!" I think he was kidding??
    We were done in a couple of hrs on Saturday. On Sunday we hooked up with our friends Dale and Alice Rhea. We all shot together and still finished up by 1230 with only a short wait on the 5 to Glock. The weather was perfect. It was in the low 80's at around midday. Not a cloud to be found in Big Sky Country!! We didn't have the time this year but next year plan on not only the match but going to either Glacier Nat'l park(about 2 1/2 hr drive) or Yellowstone(about 5 hr drive). Help make this an annual match and come on out next year, you won't regret it!!!!

    I was there with Casullman 454 and I thought the match went smooth. I didn't shoot as well as I would have liked with one of my guns but I still had a good time. I talked to Toulme a little am some other folks that were local and this was their first GSSF match. I thought the range was very nice and the range officers were very nice and thankful for all the help they were getting from the shooters (taping and explaining the match to new people). I hope they have it there again next year. I think it was worth the 8.5 hr drive to get there.

    Last but not least. The only stoplight in Montana. They stuck it just outside the range. I guess they were expecting abnormal traffic!! It is portable so they can move it whenever and wherever they might need one again!!!!!!!
