April 21st is the date for New Albany Shooting Ranges ( 1st match of the spring 07 series. The match will start at 10am and last until 3pm. We will have use of all 6 rifle lanes until 2pm, returning a lane or two to NASR range use at that time.

We will be implementing the GSSF-IM indoor shooting rules. Please view the rules HERE (, section 40.00, page 5.

The tech inspection process that we will use is outlined HERE (

A GLOCK firearm certificate is the Grand Prize. See HERE (, for additional information about the prizes.

The cost of the match is $15 for the first run and $11 for each additional run. We use your highest scored run as the match score. If you want to run various guns, they will be noted in the results but the highest score is the only one used towards the 2 match average.

Hope to see you on the 21st.

the tech inspection sounds like a joke and waste of time. you're not really going to bother to see if a pistol complies with the rules or not, just a few points that would have little bearing or form or function.

the tech inspection sounds like a joke and waste of time. you're not really going to bother.....Not a joke and not a waste of time, but I quess that if you want to skirt the GSSF PUBLISHED rules, so be it.

Besides, Ed, you shoot so many GSSF-OM that all of your stock guns are probably stock, so 'where's the beef'. I'm spending the effort and time to make sure that it's a fair match that follows the published rules, not you. All you have to do is present the gun for inspection, a quick look will usually be sufficient as an inspection, but if an Unlimited modification is found, the gun will be classified as Unlimited..

I should think that a shooter of your caliber would want a playing field where it's the shooters ability that determines the highest score, not the amount of money and/or time invested in their gun.

I guess what I'm saying is that Bring it On. If you can shoot a 500 with a high X count, you will beat me as I know I'll shoot a 500 with my STOCK G17. [BTDT many times and places]

Do many of the GSSF matches do those inspections? I'm not familiar with those competitions, have spent my time in IPSC, IDPA, and Cowboy Action. But perhaps there is some commonality...

For years in IPSC and IDPA, and to lesser extent CA, they have had power factor minimums for the ammo, yet I was never at a local match where those standards were enforced. Also, each game has equipment rules, but unless someone had made readily apparent modifications, those usually weren't taken seriously either.

what i mean is from what i read and what you're looking for is going to be of little value to a shooter. the things i would do to give me an edge you wouldn't find if that's all you look at. yeah my guns are legal for whatever class i shoot them in. only "gray" area you might find is in the maker of my mag extensions and i understand GSSF changed that to any thing plastic is legal. if i were going to tech a pistol i'd look at springs, connector, and barrel in that order.

edit: and since you have a set amount of time i don't really feel at a disadvantage shooting a stock gun aginst an UL gun.
