    Last season I used my 17 and 34, however; this year I was thinking of just shooting the 17 in as many divisions as possible and not even shoot the 34. Do the regular folks here stick to just one gun or do you switch it up? Any advantages or disadvantages I need to consider?

    I was thinking of shooting my 17 in Amateur Competition, then Master Stock and finish it off with Amateur Stock (and hope for the best score here and consider the other two divisions as practice). Is this frowned upon?

    My preference was a 17C with a solid barrel for the stock classes and the C barrel for comp class.

    Nothing wrong with your plan, many use it including Masters.

    I use a G17 for three classes and it works fine. I use it for Am. Comp. Am. Civ and Master Stock.

    I used a stock 17 for amature civilian and amature comp for 3 years. Now that I got bumped to master I'll use it for master comp and master stock, but now I have dawson fiber optic sights. I've found it easier to shoot well with the same gun in a match rather than switch back and forth.

    This year, I plan on using the same Glock in the three categories that I compete in (Am-Civ, Am-Comp, and Master Stock)in a given match-I'll use my G17 at the Roseburg and Albany matches, and my G21 at the Bremerton match.

    Best, Jon

    It's a fine plan, and one I use myself. Beware though, you will find yourself saying, "If I'd shot my Competition Glock-M score in Am-Civ..."

    There is no telling which of your three runs is going to be the best on any stage. It is nice to know that if you screw-up on your first run of the first stage you aren't out of it.

    Yes, I have said that many, many times, "If I shot.....in Am. Civ...!"

    Thanks guys for all the input. I will go ahead and run the G17 through all three this year at my first match of the season in Anderson, SC. Hopefully all goes well. I think I will start off with Master Stock then Amateur Competition and finish with Amateur Stock (in that order).

    I'll let you all know how it goes. Hopefully I'll be seeing some of you there? :)

    I shot the Thibodaux match with my 17 in Am Civ, 34 in Am Comp. I figured that I paid good money for these, so I might as well use them. Much to my chagrin, I shot much better with my 17 than with my 34...:brickwall:
