    I would sign in, then watch for a little bit, then start shooting.

    I would shoot, once you get there and see how easy the format is you'll pick it up pretty fast. No sense in going just to watch IMO.

    yep watch a little then shoot that same day

    do not pull the trigger til your front sight is clearly on the target. start slow and speed up only if you're getting good hits.

    next, try idpa and uspsa events, same thing but running and reloading on the run involved, as well as some moving targets.

    Conyers was my first match last year. You will have tons of time to wait with AT LEAST 1,000 entries being shot. I had a blast met the Gunny, was a hell of a first experience, you will be hooked.

    Yep... in other words, nothing at all like GSSF which of course has no movement or reloads on the clock AND no moving targets. Plus IDPA has occasional targets out to 35yds. 25yds is absolute max for GSSF - many MUCH closer.

    OP- Steel Challenge and Bullseye will help you with GSSF - or even a local bowling pin match will give you similar trigger time.

    My first match was Conyers 2010, been hooked ever since. I would preregister, sign up for two categories, amateur competition and amateur civilian, asuming you have a gun for those categories. Get your stickers when you get there, go watch a few stages and then shoot. Shoot your competition category first as a warm up/practice run, then shoot your am civ category. There are more awards in am civ category. I would probably shoot the 5 to Glock or Glock M first, shoot the plates last, starts you off with the slower stages then move to the plates which seem to be a faster pace. If you like shooting you will like GSSF and be looking for your next match. Good luck and have fun.
