The solution to these problems is within everyone's grasp. If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the problem!

I believe I would make a pretty darn good R.O.

Good. I am trying to make you, Chad, and Scott feel particulary guilty so that you'll all be certain to volunteer next time.

I knew where you were going with that comment.

We'll see what happens next year. I was pretty tired after a week of SHOT Show and I'm not sure I would have been able to provide the happy go lucky attitude that Moto would have been looking for. I just think that if they required all ROs to have at least shot one match, and to have read the rule book that things would go a lot better.

There have been multiple occasions where the ROs have not been as competent as Kitty which resulted in a "disagreement" about scoring and/or squading procedures.

All of the award guns GSSF puts out in an entire year does not match the number of guns Glock itself puts out the door in one 8-hour shift!

In the greater scheme of things, GSSF is hardly a blip on the Glock radar.

GSSF is an exercise in Advertising, Public Relations, and Customer support.

As with all such activities, they are not a profit center. Any company does them for the sake of indirect benefits that are difficult to quantify.

I guess Glock believes GSSF is worth it, otherwise they would have pulled the plug on it sometime during the 22 years GSSF has been doing matches.

I could not.

For a new shooter, learning accuracy must come first.

A new shooter who tries to go too fast is just going to spray the landscape.

That is why the GSSF point system is what it is.

To encourage accuracy first, but it is still the lowest aggregate time that wins!

As the shooter gains experience, he or she can then move on to more high speed, low drag comptitions like IDPA or USPSA where speed counts more than accuracy.

I have always thought that USPSA, escpecially, stresses speed too much over accuracy.

Mostly by making the A & C zones "too big".

I agree, GSSF is great for new shooters, but it also make those of us that shoot IDPA and USPSA better shooters.

I give GSSF full credit for making me a better all-round shooter as it keeps me honest in the accuracy department.

In disciplines like USPSA you can overcome poor accuracy, at least to a degree, by shooting faster.

To win in GSSF you have to be accurate.

I know this thread is a little old. But I thought I would chime in anyway. GSSF is the reason I bought my first glock. I love the format. Although I have had training in the military and have taken a tactical shooting course, when I am shooting for enjoyment I have no desire to run n gun and navigate an obstacle course, I just want to shoot. I also compete in a local indoor league. So to each his own. I support all of the shooting sports.
