So, how many are making the trip to Norco Ca April 30th- May 1?
Sounds like a long match!
Wrong State for me. I had enough of Kalifornia when I was stationed at George AFB in the Mojave Desert. I feel your pain. ;c ;c ;c
I wish i could but its a little out of my reach.
I will be shooting on Saturday.
I'll be there. Hoping to improve on last year's score.
I just found out about this event yesterday in the 2005 Glock Annual that Glock sent me. I am wondering how much money I should bring with me to shoot? Is there an entry fee? How much ammo? How much time should I allocate for this event on a Sunday? Any prizes to be won?
I really don't know much about the GSSF, but I live close enough to consider this event for my participation. The only real turnoff for me would be excessive time that is spent waiting around for things to happen. Any feedback would be appreciated.
If you don't pre-register, the first entry costs $25 plus the $10 late or admin fee for not registering at least a week in advance. You can enter several catagories and each will cost an additional $25. Plan on about 110 rounds per catagory, more would be better in case you have a weapon malfunction and are allowed a re-shoot. Many matches have a side match or warm-up stage that costs a buck or two a run and there is usually a food concession.
It would be best if you have four magazines but you can shoot with only two; most stages require three magazines except for the plates which require four.
Can't speak for California but all of the folks at the right-hand coast matches are great! Your fellow competitors will be friendly and helpful! Come on out and have fun! Go to www.gssfonline.com for all of the rules; as for prizes, you could win a new Glock!
I went to the GSSF website and read some of the info regarding participating in this event. If I'm reading it right, I have to join the GSSF for $35 if I want to shoot AND spend another $35 when I show up in the morning to register for the days shoot and the "administration fee" for not pre registering. ;a This is just a bit too much and the requirement that I join the GSSF is the deal breaker for me.
Why should I pay $70 to shoot my Glock at an event that only makes 1 appearance in my geographical area? I would really like to go, but my cheapskate factor just won't let me throw money away like that;z .
While I feel your pain, just wanted to point out that GSSF does come out to the SOCAL area (Norco and Piru) twice a year.
And the $35 membership is good for a full year and you can save yourself $10 per entry simply by pre-registering. To top it all off you have the opportunity to win a new Glock of your choice or maybe some cash and meet new friends. Sounds like a pretty good deal to me unless you don't want to make new friends or maybe win a nice new shinny Glock.
Good luck either way, it's ultimately your choice. ;c
I'll save myself the expense and the aggravation and just go to where I normally shoot on the weekend. Win a Glock;a . I'll be playing the SuperLotto this week too, ;z maybe I'll win that too;g .
In all seriousness though, I just work too hard at a job I really don't like that much to be forking over money for something like this when the money could be better spent on something tangible that pertains to shooting, i.e., reloading supplies.
Sorry to come off like a cheapskate, but that's what I am.;e
If you have a one in four chance of winning anything at the Superlotto you better spend the 70.00 bucks on tickets. GSSF isn't for everybody. Some folks don't think it's challenging enough, they usually haven't won, some think it's too slow, they don't enjoy being around other Glockers and visiting and now too expensive. That's why they have other games for firearms enthusiast.
In for Sat.
Everyone have some fun and hunt those "A's"
i started shooting GSSF last july and so far have won 2 glocks, t shirt, ball cap and 25 dollars. on the other hand i could of took the money i spent on shooting GSSF and bought all or most that i've won. truth is it's fun to do and the prizes are a bonus.
Went to my very first GSSF match today (Norco), and I had a good time. Didn't shoot very well, but it was fun at any rate. Met some good folks, and since the SSA (event hosts) also ran their usual Steel Madness shoot in the unused bays, you could sign up for either/or/both. Since I don't have many opportunities to shoot, I forked out the $$ and signed up for both.
Hey Marine, it only costs $27 to shoot Steel Madness. Lots of running and gunning in that game. The fifth stage today used the Kill House (rarely used since it belongs to another organization). But in most SM shoots, you'll need at least 300 rounds and plenty of mags. No membership fees so the match fee is total. Big fun. That Web site is www.ssashooter.com.
