    I'm thinking about trying to attend my first outdoor GSSF match in Long Island... but I'm not sure if I can do it. If I do, I need to drive up there from Philly on Saturday morning, shoot the match, and come right home. Will I be able to get it all done in one day? Do people regularly have to shoot on both days? Is it too late to register for the October 9th match? Thanks in advance!

    You should be able to complete the three stages in one day. You only have a maximum of 107 rounds fired per entry. Registration closes at 2 or 3, I'm not sure.

    My friends Ron and James recently got up early on a Saturday morning, drove 300 miles to Marietta, Ohio, shot the match, and drove home 300 miles, back by 8:00pm. They did it again a few weeks ago driving 150 miles to Statesville, NC and back the same day.:cool:

    Ron shot in three categories and James shot two.

    are you stuck on doing it on Saturday?

    my experience has been that generally first thing Sunday morning is the quickest way to go (unless it rains on Saturday and a zillion people are there Sunday morning)

    I'm going to the NHRA drag race at Maple Grove (Reading, PA) on Sunday... so, yeah, I have no choice. I might just bag it this time since it'll be 3+ hours each way and then I've got a lot of driving to do on Sunday.

    Go and shoot it. You may even win a pistol or cash prize.;)
