    OK, who's going, what day, and for grins, what categories? This is the first paper match, at least for the East coast so who's brave and going? ;)

    Ill be arriving friday, and shooting saturday. Probably leaving out sunday.

    The paper factor should make this one interesting. categories will be CD, and AC.

    I plan on driving down Sunday morning, it's only 1.5 hours for me. This will be my first ever GSSF match, looking forward to it. I read the COF for the paper options, and it seems the only reason to load more than 6 rounds on the plates is in case of a malfunction. I'm shooting AmCiv and Comp with my G17.

    I won't make this one! SC State IDPA usually falls the same weekend. Maybe next year I'll return, it's a great match!

    Richmond doesn't have any steel and GSSF isn't bringing any. So we have the plates and M modified to use D-1's. Check the Hot Topics at GSSF and look at the courses of fire, they're marked for paper.

    You only get 6 shots for 6 plates. Put's a new twist on accuracy doesn't it? :cool:

    I sure hope the locks are good!! We had a great Paper match day. I want to tell you the paper match is going to be a speedy one. The (paper) plates option is going to beeeeee fast very fast. Sorry you missed out. You would have had a blast.

    The GunSmoke Gang will roll into to Richmond late Saturday afternoon and shoot on Sunday morning. I am shooting Am Civ and Comp with my 17 and MU with my 17L. I never realized that Richmond didn't have their own steel. Has GSSF always brought steel to this match? If so, how many others will be affected like this?

    Every club that sponcers a GSSF outdoor match that is 500 miles or more from Symnra,GA will have to provide there own steel or use the "paper option" setup!

    Thanks Dan, I just went to GSSFonline and reviewed the paper options for the Plates and the 'M'. Looks like I better try this a time or two before next weekend. I was surprised to see that on the paper option for the plates you only have to be in the 'C' ring to score a hit and to top it off the targets are 7 yards instead of 11 yards. At this distance, and using the 'C' ring I might actually get by with what I have a tendancy to do at times: shoot without looking at the sights. This is point shooting territory... It also will make it very difficult to gage your finish because how the heck can you know what a good score is??? Oh well, I guess GSSF is just trying to help us become a little more versitile. ;f
