JoeD: Might be able to attend a Montgomery shoot, I live in Monroeville, about 110 miles from there, Bham just too far away for a day trip, with gas about 18.00 a gallon now. Do you shoot often @ Montgomery? Where is the range?

We shoot their IDPA match every month. We shoot their IPSC match about every other month. Go to www.centralalabamagunclub.org for a map.
They put on a good match.

10-4, will do...which do you like better, by the way, USPSDA or IDPA?

What handguns do you shoot & recommend? I've got a Sig 226/.40 S&W (issue sidearm), S&W 5904/9mm, S&W 686.4", & two .45s, a Colt Officers, and a Safari Arms custom commander-sized "Cohort".

Whaddaya think?

I prefer IDPA over USPSA. Neither are tactically correct, but IDPA is closer. Both are just games. I would shoot the gun that I shoot best. Don't think I would fool with the revolvers. No one shoots them very much in IDPA.
My wife and I shoot Glocks. I use either a G35 or G34. She shoots a G34. Glocks and 1911s own IDPA. 95% of the guns used in SSP are Glocks. There is probably a 60/40 split between Glocks and 1911s at most matches.

Thanks, Joe D, the Florida bunch shoots on the 4th Saturday each month, will try to go and at least watch the next one if not on call that week-end...I doubt the boss would look kindly on me driving my State of Alabama vehicle into Florida to shoot!!Thanks for the info, and sharing your experiences and weapon choices, Ken

I'm thinking about the middle of October or first of November in the Montgomery area, make it as accessible for everyone...and not so blistering hot! (I hate shooting in hot weather)...I have a friend in the Attorney General's office that belongs to a club just east of Montgoemry, will have him see about the possibilities, dates, costs, # of firing points, consessions, toilet facilities...Any input will be appreciated, ie IDPA or IPSC style or APOST type...needd to figure if competition or just fun shoot, if there is a chsance of having a 3 gun match, side matches, long range shooting, etc.

I know we cant suit everyone, may just have to pick a date (will be a Saturday, probably) and see what happens. Will try to give at least a month's notice so everyone can try to make plans. Let me hear from you, FM12

Thats a little far from me, but I may could make it, depending. I think it would be fun if enough people come.

Yeah, its going to be a trip for several, especially those on the gulf coast. I plan for this to be fun, maybe have t-shirts made, eat a lot and talk bad about those that didnt come!

Where are you in NE Alabama?

OK, this is what I need for you to do if you're really interested: Post back on this forum.

1:where you are, this will give me an idea of where most of the shooters will come from, and if we need to shoot somewhere other than Montgomery

2:The best three dates for a shoot, if you can plan that far ahead as for duty week-ends, etc, in October and November

3.The type shoot you're interested in as far as format(IDPA, IPSC, APOST) and any other matches we might could have, ie 3 gun, bug, revolver only,1911 match, etc.

4: There's going to be some $$$ involved, would you be willing to spend up to, say $20 for the costs incurred, such as range rental, etc.

5. If youd be interested in buying a commerative T shirt(s) at actual cost.

6. I personally would like for all shooters to be memebers of Glock Talk. Get anyone that wants to shoot signed up if not already a member.

I'm open to ALL suggestions and could obviously use some help. Since this is the first Alabama Glockerama, may want to keep it pretty simple. But, at the same time, some shooters may have to travel quite a distance and we want them to get their traveling dollars worth. Please email me at smith1@frontiernet.net with questions, ideas..I prefer emails rather than GT pms.

If most of the shooters are from North Alabama, might want to see about shooting near Birmingham, but I'm thinking that is about as far north as we could go, otherwise may keep the gulf coast folks from coming. If you have a range we could use, let me know. Just dont beat me up about all this, LOL.

ALSO...we'll need someone to run the range for the competition shoots, I have NO experience in that. When you see me shoot, you'll thing I dont have much experience at that either! I would also state up front, NO ALCOHOL on the range, period and amen.

I think this could be A LOT of fun, if we dont get too serious about it. We really dont want anyone getting mad, etc because things didnt go their way. It would hopefully be just a good day at the range for shooting and meeting new shooters with the same goal in mind: paying homage to the GLOCK pistol! FM12
