    We appreciated everyone who attended the Lexington match.

    One question though. We had several requests for a warm-up stage. We are thinking of having a plate rack set up in a spare bay to allow shooters a chance to warm-up. Thinking of charging $1 a run. Does this seem reasonable? What is done at other GSSF matches?

    TIA for your responses.

    $1.00 per magazine is reasonable indeed.

    I kinda think two runs for a dollar is reasonable, but a dollar a run isn't a rip off. I'd pay it. :cool:

    Most places go 2 for a $1.00 but like Dale says, a buck a run isn't unfair. :)

    Sounds good to me, and if you gave the proceeds to a local charity, you'd probably get some good press (and more shooters) out of it. :)

    I noticed that Marietta did this. It builds the confidence.

    Waldorf had it last year. It was set up off to the side of the Glock M. While folks were waiting for that stage, they could practice. If I remember correctly, it was 2 runs for $1.

    I used it too. The Glock Armorer used it to test fire my 36, and had me fire it three as well. Great idea.

    Would have paid for a trial run. Rookie mistake - I shot the plates first and while I faired OK, I had to put 7 rounds downrange to hit 6 plates on 3 of my 4 runs. I normally shoot plates at 47 feet and clean them with maybe one miss in 4 passes.

    I would have loved to be able to make 3-4 passes on steel before I had to shoot "for real".
