In the sign-up sheet for a GSSF match, it looks like you can enter multiple divisions, with a separate entry fee for each division.

is that true? If so, how does the shooting proceed? I couldn't understand it from reading what GSSF has offered online, so I'd like to hear from those of you who regularly shoot GSSF matches.

i have both a 17 and a 34, and would enter Amateur Civilian with the 17, and Amateur Competition with the 34, I think. This is a two-day match, so I'm unclear about which gun I would use on each day: maybe both?

Thanks,
Chris

You can shoot up to six divisions per match.

The rules state that after shooting two entries that you have to give up the firing line for at least one shooter. This, however, is at the range officer's discretion.

I typically shoot two divisions. I'd like to shoot three, but I think two will remain my personal limit for now.

Thanks, that's helpful. Do you find you have better results if you use one gun on day one, and then the second gun on the second day, or do you try to fit it all into one day?

I usually only attend one day of a weekend match. I shoot my entries back to back. I have been shooting in amateur subcompact and guardian, but I will be shooting amateur competition in place of the subcompact in my next match.

Most folks only attend on day and shoot whatever divisions they register for pretty much back to back. I have only shot in two matches thus far. In the first one I shot one division, in the second I shot two. At the match in Griffin I will shoot 3 divisions. I will shoot all 3 in a row if they let me. If not, I will shoot 2 then let another shooter in my party jump in then finish my last division.

While I have only attended one match so far, I shot two divisions back to back. I shot my G19c in competition, with no thought of actually competing as a warm-up, and then shot my G19 in Am. Civilian. They say more than two divisions will require you to move back in the line but I have heard they will sometimes allow you to shoot more than two based on how busy it is/hoe many people are waiting.

Two is good enough for me. Good luck!

Dang it I keep thinking of something else.

Most shooters develop their own strategy. It becomes part of the "game" of it. Which gun/division to shoot first? Which order to take the targets? etc.

I shoot the two divisions with the first intended as a warm up.

At the recent Conyers match, I even experiment with different strategies on the Glock-M to see which way was faster for me.

I plan on making it to my first match down in Atlanta, In. mid July. I bought my G19 used, and at this point I have no idea if it's still 'stock'.... what division should I pre-register for? or should I just wait to register as a 'walk-up', after having the armorer check it out as soon as I get there? AND, is there a cost to have the armorer look at it? and, (part II) is there a cost to have him/her 'make it current'? really not sure what to expect.

You absolutely want to pre-register.

The day of the match process can be a bit confusing:

Get there as early as you can, you dont have to shoot right away but the time of your sign in establishes your priority in line when you are ready to shoot. Sort of like the Southwest Airlines boarding process.

Go through the registration and receive your stickers.

Go to each station and sign up (do not stop at a station, sign up and go to the next station and sign up there, etc.).

Once you are signed up, you can come back anytime you want to shoot. Of those waiting to shoot, the first person signed up goes to the front of the line.

After signing up at all 3 stages, go to the armorer and have your gun taken care of. The armorer is free. I know they will swap the small parts to make it stock if that's what you want. I dont know about a barrel but I've seen them change out the internals for people.

I read it a dozen times and still didn't have the concept. Luckily the lady at registration kept saying "don't fire a single round until you sign up at every stage." I didn't know why but I did what she said. When I returned to a stage that had a 4hr wait and ended up next to go "on the board," I finally understood.

BTW, I've heard Atlanta can turn out very large crowds. Perhaps someone here who's been can elaborate.
