    and (depending on the channel it seemed that saturday was going to be the best day.)
    Mrs. and lethal both had a good time shooting.
    We got to waldorf late and were one of the last shooters to finish.
    BUT I MUST SAY THAT THE ROS WERE GREAT!
    It must have been a long damp day for them.
    Their spirits were high and they made us feel welcome.

    Let me be the first to say YIPEE!!!:) :) ;a ;a

    We decided to make this trip a speed run so we left at 5 AM ;Q(that's not the yipee part). We ran into alot of fog so it took us an extra hour to get there. We got there at 10 AM and hardly had any waiting at any of the stages. The RO's were great. The only thing that was a downer was the weather which was chilly (especially for May and being south of the Mason-Dixon line).

    OK...now for the yipee part. My toothpaste did not fall into the toilet this morning (See Richmond debriefing) and I had my best match ever. I got a 258.74. Going from Richmond last year with a 684.xx and dead last is....GREAT!

    Sniper and I had a deal. If I got below 300 we would go to Fulton...so if you see someone grinning from ear to ear....it will be me.

    Friday nite dinner had six people in attenence, some good gun talk that i'm sure the women just loved!!!Lone Star did serve up a great filet!
    Saturday
    Nearly the exact same weather as last year, just not as windy!!
    Dr. Rod and I were the first two shooters to show and go, we were finished by 11 am, and we took our time!Attendance looked slow up until then.
    Thanks to all the RO's and Scott G. and David S. things were running smooth.
    I shot well but no personal records!
    We did run into 7.62 Sniper and Glockmom. Michelle told us about her NEW plan to shooting , glad it was working!!

    We camped in WalMart's parking lot Friday night, got there too late to go to dinner. Got to the range the next day and parked the trailer in the corner of the parking lot, sat down and ate lunch then went and shot. It was cloudy, but didn't get any rain. Had a near personal best of 88.77 in AmCiv. The ROs were great, and they had their act together. It made for a very enjoyable match. Early Sunday morning the rain started, and I was glad we shot on Saturday. It wasn't raining hard when we pulled out, saw some shooters who said it wasn't too bad since all the shooting positions were covered. Hope everybody else had a good time, we sure did!

    shot Sunday morning, a freind of mine and I arrived early, misjudged the time to get there.. Was Raining.. yuck. Not real hard just steady and it was MUDDY as all get out.. glad i wore the boots.

    Not very many folks that we could see, shot each stage in turn as we walked up.. thank goodness for the tents..

    The range was very nice and the folks at the range, RO's and help, were just awesome. Well done.

    Only thing that would have made it easier was the sign at the entrance, that tombstone with GSSF on it was a little hard to spot, needs to be up higher or brighter..

    I shot with less penalities this time then I did in Richmond, we'll see how it turns out. And it looks like my friends daughter got the bug and will probably shoot the next match they can go to...

    So although it was a wet rainy yucky day the shooting was fun and the folks at the range made it much more enjoyable.

    Just back from waldrof. Had a couple of good scores. Shot saturday, chilly but did not get wet. I just hope the guys that shot sunday stayed dry. Got up about 7:00am and was raining cats and dog.
    OK FOR THE BIG NEWS,
    Scott and the rest of the GSSF staff broke out some proto type equipment. They are working on doing the scoring electronicly.
    They are using electronic touch pads,We shot about 12:30 and they broke them out for testing.
    I was told if they work out, It would do away with the paper score sheets. They said it may be a few weeks before they go to them all together, they want to test them out in a few matches. first.
    They may have something about this on the GSSF website ,Im not sure. But, It can be checked out with a mouse click.

    To start with "Congrats to Glockmom", it sure feels good to see your scores coming down doesn't it...

    We got to the range Saturday around 1:00 PM. No rain while we shot, but it was chilly, no I mean it was cold. It was close to 70 degrees when we left NC at 5:00 AM and when we got to the range it was in the lower to mid 50's. Thank goodness for the rain gear. I started off with a good enough '5 To Glock', but then came the 'M'. I just don't know where a couple of those shots came from??? The plate rack didn't treat me very kindly either. Think I was about 102 total. Not real bad, but I had hoped to break 90 for the first match. Oh well, guess I have plenty of time to practice before Statesville.

    Six of us up from Richmond at about 11am. Sprinkles and cool, but the rain held off. Good ole Waldorf mud! I shot my best ever! But still can't get it right.

    I shoot my stock 17 in Am. Civ and Competition. I shoot the Comp. class as a "warm up". Trying to work out the jitters and be ready for Am. Civ. Well, shot 93 in Am. Civ and an 82 on the Comp. sheet. If I could just pick which sheet they go on, I could finally finish nearer to the top. I am still very happy with both scores.

    Anyone else mess up with a warm up like that?

    Hope all had a great time. We did.

    Great time in Waldorf - please let the ROs know how much we appreciate their positive attitude. Its only an hours drive from Arlington and I got an early start. Ran into a friend who works for Capitol police (D. Denny) & we shot together early (I was one of the 1st ones there!) - and yeah, it was overcast but personally I like overcast conditions best! Targets were nice and clear through yellow shooting glasses. The most amusing moments of the morning came on the 5 glock stage when my partner broke out the ported long slide .40 and opened up under the low EZ-Up (that just happened to be holding about 10 gallons of rainwater!) After the first shot it was like shooting through a waterfall! Did not seem to slow him up much though. Done by lunchtime - thanks to Glock for putting on this match. No idea how we shot & looking forward to the results later this week or next. Regards,

    D.C. Johnson

    Caught a good window on Sunday and beat the rain.
    SCSC staff, once again hat's off to you for pulling off a great event in poor conditions. Also very impressed with David Sevigny and his new role with Glock and GSSF. He was manning the registration table and doing armorers work Sunday. Fixed my G-19 ejection problem and gave up some 9mm3 followers to boot.

    More equipment problems for me. Did not find the problem until about 10:30 Monday morning when I was cleaning the pistol. The lock ring that holes the front lens in my scope was 1/4" away from the lens.;t ;6 ;t
    Do you think the front lens was loose?
    I'm going to say that is why groups @ 20 & 25 looked like I was using a skeet choke. Oh well, S**T happens.

    Is that the same scope that had the problem earlier or the second one? You need to have an exorsism performed on yoour 17L to get it healed! :(
