    Do you have Adobe Acrobat Reader installed on your computer? The info from GSSF is in *.pdf format, other programs won't open it. I actually just checked the new descriptions and printed them out, as Richmond will be a paper match. They are using the D-1's in a staggered format, should be different.

    <b>Glock The Plates 'Paper Option'</b>
    Distance 7 yards
    Targets to be staggered in hieght by 15", the 1st one on the left will be set at a hieght set by the RO and the 2nd one will be 15" lower, the 3rd will be the same as the 1st and the 4th the same as the 2nd, so on and so on, also up and down and up and down.
    Scored Hits: Anything in the 'C' ring or better (12" ring) is scored as a hit.
    Misses: Anything outside the 'C' ring and this will cost you 10 seconds. Plus no stacking or making up shots, you can only shoot 6 rounds per run.
    <b>Glock M 'Paper Option'</b>
    Pretty much the same as the 'M' with steel poppers except there are no steel poppers. The center popper (only) is replaced with a D1 cardboard target (same target as all the rest) except it is turned upside down. You shoot as normal and put one hit on the center cardboard 'popper' <i>each string</i>. A hit anywhere on the cardboard is a scored hit.

    Hope this helps...

    Yeah, but Lurch didn't have Blue! And actually that's one of the pits at Gateway.

    It looks like you have been practicing. Any advice on the paper "plates"? I see 2 options: 1) shoot the 3 on the top (or bottom) and the other 3; 2) shoot left to right (or right to left).

    Definately right to left or left to right, not the other.

    So what is the lame reasoning behind this? Are people really afraid of steel?

    From the spectator's standpoint, the plates are about the only interesting stage to watch.

    So really, what's the reason for the change?

    Jakk,

    The reasoning is sound, not lame. Many clubs hosting GSSF matches do not have their own steel targets. GSSF has been hauling steel around the country for 14 years now, but has cut back on their hauling distance due to the skyrocketing cost of transportation. Rather than cancel matches where there is no steel, GSSF has come up with a cardboard alternative so that we, the members of GSSF, can continue to shoot the matches at our favorite locations.

    I would find it rather tiring having to tow a trailer holding up to 3 plate racks and 12 poppers over a thousand miles a weekend at least twice a month for fourteen years. A small trailer loaded with steel is an accident just waiting to happen. I applaud GSSF for developing an alternative.

    I was a bit surprised when I found out those plate racks were hauled around and not provided by the clubs.

    Well, when you put it that way. It might be interesting to see what this does to the current high scores.

    Any idea how many and which clubs don't have their own steel?

    That's a question I'd like to know the answer to also. Steel or Paper Option, I'll be there having fun just like always. But it would be nice to know up front when to expect steel or paper.
