    Yes, you need to be a member to play the game, but it's worth the $25.00 annual mambership fee. Several GT'ers, regulars in this GSSF Forum will be there. Team Sidearmor will have an Am/Civ Team and a Stockmeister Team at Shreveport. If you need any assistance, just look around for the lady and men in grey Sidearmor golf shirts.

    Sure will. the Northwest Florida gang has already paid entry fee and made Hotel reservations. Will be arriving Friday afternoon and departing Sunday morning. Might even drag along a south central Florida "Gentleman" so you will see many of the Grey Team Sidearmor shirts.

    I was in your shoes this past Saturday when I attended my first GSSF outdoor match.

    Some tips from one newbie to another:

    -Bring a small, portable, lightweight collapsible chair. Very important! I had not known about this crucial item when I went. ;f

    -Bring at least 100 extra rounds for warming up on the plates. That way, you do not have to shoot the match completely "cold".

    -If you go in the early morning, you may want to bring a sweater or a light jacket. I am not sure what the weather is like down there.

    Debra and I will be there, having 4 magazines is nice to have but not needed. I agree with the chairs, I bought a yard cart to bring to the matches to carry my stuff in.

    If you are not a reloader then the 115gr Winchester Value Packs from Walley World is great. As far as transporting your gun from stage to stage the 2 most used was are: (1) in a shooting bag, (2) in a holster with the slide locked back. I use a shooting bag because then I have room in it to also carry spare mags, ammo, mosquito repellant, a small towel and any other item I think I will need. The chair is a great item, I use one of the fold up canvas camping chairs from Walley World. The range at Shreveport has all the stages close together so that its no problem just carrying your bag and chair from stage to stage.

    Look for the folks in the Grey Golf Shirts and White Hats from "Team Sidearmor" and be sure to say "Hi".

    Blah, you will need about 150 rounds for each category you shoot. Some recommend you sign up for one or two extra categories to get some extra practice.

    I won't be able to make it this year (duty calls!) so you're in charge!(ha)

    You guys drive safe and keep the shiney side up.

    San Antonio is still too far away to "call".
