New to the Board (w/ questions)

I'll admit I have been lurking the board for awhile to get some information. I also have a membership at TFL and at Hi-Point Forums. I have finally made the decision (actually I made the decision several weeks ago) to get a G17 w/ the Advantage Arms .22 conversion kit. I was also looking into a Springfield 1911 w/ the Kimber conversion but what sold me to get the G17 was the price, hi-cap mags, cheaper ammo costs (including .22LR of course), and GSSF.

I want to be able to get involved in GSSF sometime next year after going to a few events first. My questions are:

1. How easy is it to shoot GSSF? I have never been to any shooting event so that's why I want to attend a few events before actually shooting in one.

2. Can you travel to other GSSF matches if they're not in your area?

3. Is a holster really necessary for GSSF?

Anything else about GSSF that you can throw in would be appreciated. Thanks! :)

First, Welcome to Glock Talk and GSSF. Also you can check www.gssfonline.com for Rules, schedule, match scores and much good to know info. It would also be great if you would tell us what State you are in. We could maybe add some additional info of interest to you. ;)

There is no fee to watch. All that would be required is Ear & Eye protection and sign a Liability Waiver. I would recommend that you bring your shooting gear because I haven't seen many that when they saw how much fun it was didn't want to shoot right away. There are several matches in your general area on this seasons schedule:
California---Piru
Richmond
Norco
Washington---Shelton
Oregon-------Roseburg
Montana------Missoula
Utah---------Salt Lake City
Arizona------Tucson
Colorado-----Greeley

I have traveled fron the Florida Pan Handle to Las Vegas twice for a match and regularly travel up to 900 miles each way to matches. It becomes a fever very soon.:cool:
