Would be nice, though for GSSF to create these divisions, so that people can see how they do against others who choose to do it the same way. The only way to do a weak hand division is that the person will have had to have shot a regular division, so that GSSF can know the difference. Everybody wins though-- more fun, more range time, a little more $ for GSSF. More time for the RO's, but I'm always appreciative of that FWIW.
If you want to shoot one handed, venerable NRA 2700 is available to you.
If you want to shoot support hand only, USPSA and, I think, IDPA do from time to time.
GSSF is for NEW shooters; it is introductory competition shooting.
It is not
the place to tempt them into trying things that do not much lend themselves to the primary purpose of the Glock firearm; their learining how to use it to defend their lives when that "bump" happens in the night.
Glock susidizes GSSF as it stands. GSSF is an advertising activity for Glock. It is a net expense
a net income generator.
A new Division requires a budget
for the new prizes, over the 44 matches on the current schedule.
44 new Guns. 44 new $100 second place awards. 44 new $75 3rd place awards.
TIMES TWO. Amateur AND Master! 88 x guns, 88 x $100, 88 x $75.
How in the name of Gaston Glock do you expect Gaston Glock to lose
money to support one-hand or support-hand, or backwards-over-the-shoulder-sighting-with-a-mirror or what have you Annie Oakley stunt shooting?
