It's shaping up to be really good weather for the Topton, Pa GSSF match this coming weekend.

Saturday they are saying it's going to be 82 with a chance of showers or thunderstorms, Sunday 82 partly sunny. Pretty nice, this time of year it's usually in the mid to upper 90's.


Will be shooting a 21SF gen 3 in the Amateur Civilian Stock and Heavy Metal divisions, and a 30SF gen 3 in Major Subcompact.

Looking forward to my very first competition. Going in with zero expectations, just an open mind and an ammo can full of .45 ACP, with the only goal being to drive home about 25 pounds (of ammo) lighter :D

Where is topton at? I would really like to go and watch see how it is.
If you don't mind me asking, why can't you go, Dave? I was planning on going, but I don't know if my wife will be okay with me sinking any more money into my "hobby". It would be really cool if you and Pat made it out to the match. Then I would almost be required to go! Oh, and Pat, you should join GSSF after winning that shoot-out competition. You'd surely win a glock! I'll sponsor you if I can get the first glock!:D

HAHAh. I'm in the midst of taking an NRA instructor certification course and I've got to get through my cert materials by Sunday. On top of that, my second instructor's course requires a pre-qual and I may have to run to Whitehall to get pre-qual'd for the course that day.

I'll play it by ear. If i'm going to topton- I want to shoot and I haven't registered. ;)


Ditto on Bobbysteals entering.

Be careful, there are mosquitos testing positive for West Nile Virus out there. Use repellant!

If Pat goes, I'll definitely make an extra effort to go. If you can fit it into your schedule, that would be awesome Dave, if not, I understand. Good luck with your certifications!

Thanks for the compliments guys! I'm not sure how well I would fair in competition. I think I still need some work especially on time events or anything over 7 yards. I'll have to go to the gssf website and see what it's all about. And I'll also have to see what's going on this weekend (my brother and dad both have birthdays this weekend) before I make any commitments. I'll keep you posted though. Thanks again!

Haha neat! After waiting nearly 2 months, got my GSSF membership care package in the mail yesterday, almost as if they knew I'd need it for something this weekend :D

You should have let me sponsor youuu! :p I would have paid for a 3 year membership and all your match fees! Well, enjoy your free glock. I'll try and make it out. It's a little less then a half hour from me.

Haha you have more confidence than I do! I was looking at the results from previous matches and some of the competitors are really fast! It should be fun either way though. Hopefully we'll see you guys there! If not I'll be sure to take plenty of pictures and post all about it.

If it goes boom or bang, I want to play with it!

Did some packing this morning for a little weekend getaway. Hopefully some of you guys are able to make it, if so hopefully we'll be able to trade experiences after the smoke clears haha. Have fun and shoot safely, everyone.
