Guess they didn't have a match at Roseburg this weekend. ;1 ;1 ;1 ;1 ;1 ;T ;T ;T
Yes there was a GSSF match in Roseburg this weekend. I went this morning and had a great day. Weather was moderate; crowd was also about moderate; the wait between stages wasn't bad at all. All in all, the usual great time.
Well It was a clear sunny day, and there were 194 entries, a couple of no shows, so I think the total will be around 191 for the weekend.
I was pleased that the stages went smoothly, the best in a few years. Scott did a fantastic job, as did ALL the staff, and crew. Good job to all, well done.
Glen was busy to the end working on Glocks, and everyone looked like they were having a fantastic day.
I was short one person for our team this year, he is overseas, and my back up shoter could not make it. So no team "Oregon Security Training" for Roseberg,OR. this year.
I shot okay, I need to practice on the "Five to Glock" I had a "Mike' on the far target.
My other shooter on the usual team had a "Mike" on the second farthest target due to a sneeze (or so he said. lol).
I also had two "Mikes" on the "Glock-M" one each on the twenty yard targets. I need to practice farther away it would appear. Tough to do on a 50' range.
The best run on the plates I had was 5.55 seconds, not bad (for me).
My other team mate shot one run in 3.98 seconds. (Stock G-17 w/ trij)
I was shooting my G-19 today, and it functioned flawlessly. Same for the G-17. The shooters on the other hand...well we had a good time any way.
Again I would like to thank the GSSF Staff, and the Crew for a wonderfull day. I have never just walked up, handed in my paperwork, and been on deck before, it was nice.
I look forward to the Fernan match, that is the next one on the tour for us this year.
See ya all at the Match.
Safe, and fun shooting to all.
Two of the original group didn't make it, so no team entry for us either. I shot my best match ever today (Competition with my G34 w/ Bo-Mars): 118.something.
My open gun was my worst entry. A Carver mount is on hand to replace the milled-in Optima, and a C-More is on its way.
My Am.Civ. entry was worse than I had hoped. I completely flubbed the last string on the plates, missing 3. That was a 180.something.
The IPSC fun stage was interesting, while I waited my turn, some guy was shooting, and his gun was going full-auto. He dumped about 3 rounds per trigger pull.
I did notice something today with the G17 and my 147gr Titegroup loads. I'm loading them as per Speers #13 Manual, 3.3gr, 1.130 OAL. They run great in the 34, but I think the shorter barrel of the 17 didn't allow them to get enough velocity to stabilize, and I had poor groups at the longer targets, and keyholing on several, including 1 hit at the 5yd target that looked like a .45 hit it.
I think I will be switching powders to VV, as well as trying some Power Pistol before CdA in July.
Bad Bad Bad Day. The match was great .. Then had a minor KB in my G29. Blew the mag straight down and out and broke the trigger. Was shooting reloads. Had Glen the armor check it out and after replacing the complete trigger assembly he could find nothing else wrong with it. I figured that it was weak brass and Glen said from the damage to the gun that is what he would also say it was. So besides some powder stains across my hand and a little bit of stinging all was good. Went to shoot my G17 after words and just could not get in the groove. Still a little shaken and nervous since I was shooting reloads in it also. I wish I could have found the brass but I did not even think about it at the time and by the time I thought about it it was long gone.
Thumbs up to the RO's that were with me on the incident. They showed great concern about my personel well being. Even afterwords I had them coming up to make sure I was Ok. They were great.
Now I got to decide if I want to shoot it at Shelton. ( I will but after careful Brass Review)
The only problem I had was the very long wait for the Glock M at about 1100 on 6/8/03. About 1.5 hours. I think we were kept getting pushed down to the bottom of the pile. I wish I would have shot better. Guess I need some more pratice.
Well I went both days as I shot in 6 catagories and I had a lot of fun. My stepson (14) shot in his first GSSF match here at Roseburg and had a good time. We both got to RO half a day on Sat. which was the hotter of the two days at about 98 degrees. We both need more work on the trigger control as we struggled on the plates and hitting low. Sat. was dead as far as the numbers of shooters. I walked right up on Sat. and shot with no waiting anywhere. I could have easily shot all six catagories Sat. afternoon if I had wanted to but saved some for Sunday. Between the two of us we burned up just over 700 rounds with the match and IPSC fun shoot they had set up. It was a lot of good practice for future matches, and I need all the practice I can get.

Alice and I shot at Roseburg on Sunday. It had cooled off considerably from Saturdays furnace heat and it was quite pleasant.
As usual, the Roseburg club is the best! Scott was there and did his usual excellent job of getting things started promptly and running smoothly.
Alice had just returned on Tuesday from three weeks of judging cat shows in Australia and New Zealand, so she not only didnt know what time it was, she wasnt sure what continent she was on. Needless to say, she didnt shoot her best. I am still looking for my excuse.
The clubs IPSC-style fun shoot was the best of an excellent string of side events this club has offered in recent years. Im hooked. Their fun shoots are always a challenge and this one was over the top in that regard. One of the ROs put it very well. This is a fun shoot, he said. You shoot it and we make fun of you! I managed to post the fastest run up until the time I left, and like last year, as I was driving home, I realized there was a faster way to shoot it. But it was too late to turn around and go back.
Thanks to the Roseburg club for another outstanding match. And thanks to all the clubs volunteers who gave up their weekend to stand in the hot sun and help us have a fun, safe match.
What was your time for the fun shoot? I shot all 10s in 7.65. I really liked their prop with the no-shoot. We need to build one of those for our club in Albany.
I was hoping scores would be out by now, seeing as how Jel had been having some stellar turnaround times for match results, I guess having 2 matches on one weekend has slowed things down a bit.
Looking forward to CdA and Shelton.
My time on the fun shoot was 4.8x with the stock gun and 4.6x with the UL gun.
I think I had a couple of 8s in each of those runs. If I had a chance to go back and do it again I think I could do a 4.50. But if pigs had wings they could fly.
Maybe they will have a fun shoot at Coeur dAlene and / or Shelton.
I think my G35 would need wings to shoot that faster than I did. Bobby Carver said you might have had a prototype of something you are building with you, will you have that at CdA? (not trying to give away a secret if it is one).
Bobby and I have a new project we are working on. It's not so much a secret as it is just too early to talk about it.
I will have a prototype at CdA.
I plan to be there on Sunday to shoot, but I could stop buy the range Saturday PM if you cannot make it on Sunday.
