Some do. It can be a little boring for family members who don't appreciate shooting (a lot hurry up and wait, as with any pistol match), but there are no rules against it. Just remember that everyone needs eye and ear protection.

Thanks! Thinking of being there on Sunday, maybe to win some prize at random...just wasn't sure if I should drag the family.

So here is the real question...why isn't the family shooting with you?

Wife is just not into guns & kids still too young for according to her (9 & 13). Hopefully, someday she'll change her views.

Hey Gryff

Are you shooting the match. I will be there on Sat working it.

Every year it gets bigger and bigger.

If you want to avoid the crowds come in the early morning or and hour before we shut down.

Question: If I can only be there until around 11:30 am on Sunday, is it worth a go at all? I have to work on Sunday and can't do Saturday unfortunately. If I come early, what time is early? Do I have to be there the whole day for the match?

I plan to possibly shoot only my Glock 19 and Glock 26. And this is my first GSSF match.

Any info is much appreciated.

Sunday, first shot is at 9am. Get there early, sign up, you should be able to finish by the time you need to leave. Yes, it will be worth it.

I like to be EARLY for everything I do. Sometimes, that means you have to wait. So, no 8am would not be too early.

I got there at 10:00, there was a line out of the clubhouse next to the bleachers(about 15 feet) I had brought my brother with me to shoot his first Glock match. We both waited an hour and a half to get to the door of the clubhouse(they only had ONE person working sign up). We looked inside, and there were more people inside than we had waited on to move to get up to the door.
We figured it would be another hour and a half to get registered and then get to shoot. We both left, pretty mad. What a piss poor way to run a match. I thought about going back tomorrow, but don't want to get shut down again.
I'll probably shoot the Hi Power Silhouette match at U.S.I. instead, at least I'll get some rounds downrange.
Oh, and for the peanut gallery that will tell me to preregister next time( I know I should have), the guy behind me DID preregister, and they lost his info, but charged his card. He was still there when I left, his buddies were long gone...

Hi All: GSSF is super interesting to me, I'm going to join and, well, I plan to use the included (with multi-year membership) pistol certificate to get a 17 at a discount. Can you let me know where in The Bay Area I can use this certificate? Also, any chance of getting a Gen4 with that benefit?

I wondered about the whole GSSF discount with GEN4's too and when I was looking into it the info I found said GSSF does not allow dealers to SSE guns for the discount program. This was 6 years or so ago so I don't know if they changed this policy or not. Maybe someone could chime in and confirm or refute this.

As far as the match to day it was my very first match of any kind ( hell it was the first time shooting steel). It was fun, but there was a lot of down time and waiting around. Is this how most competitions work?

USPSA,IDPA, 3gun Yes, there is a fair amount of down time. But that down time, if used correctly is very helpful. Watching, listening, and asking questions is a good way to pick up some very helpful tips. You can stay busy just resetting the stage. Best way to spend a Sunday.

LC Action is a Blue Label dealer, as well as Triple A in Vallejo. Other than that you're looking at going to Sac.

No Gen 4s unless you have an FFL.

I also agree with what prc77 said... Match days aren't especially high round count days. It does take some time, but there's always more to learn, and there is always lots to do.

I shot the match this AM. Preregistered, got in about 9 and they started about 9:15. I was done shooting by 10:30. Had a good time as usual, and the weather was great.
Thanks for another great time!

I shot the match today (Sunday). Arrived at about 9 and there was a line to get to the registration table. Lucky for me, someone was posted outside with the pre-registered list. I got signed in and was given my score card labels. I was finished and driving out of the parking lot at exactly 10:00. Although there were a lot of competitors, the range crew had their stuff together and things were rolling smoothly (atleast for me).

Same here. Got in at 8:15. Wasn't pre-registered though. Start registration around 8:45. By 9am I already start shooting. Done by 10am as well. So far pretty good experience and will come back for the next one.

Sat had 281 shooters. I signed up at around 1330 hrs and I was #520. I believe this is a new record for Richmond.

We had 521 shooters at the match. Pre-registered shooters didn't need to stand in the register-at-match line, but GSSF tells us that only 220 people pre-registered.

Yes, it was a NEW record for Richmond. It was a huge turn out. Thanks to all of the dedicated Glock shooters for coming out and being part of it.

Just a slight clarification but I think you had 521 ENTRIES, not individual shooters. I shooter can have up to 7 entries. Still HUGE numbers for a west coast match! If the Calguns.net team could have made it you would have had another 14+.

True, but a guy with two entries takes just as long to shoot as two separate guys.

I went and shot on Saturday and had a great time. Was my first firearms competition of any kind and will be back again. My only complaint was the registration line. I got there at 840 and was not out of the line until after 1100. They only had one guy working the table. Other than that it was a lot of fun. When will they be posting results and winners of give aways?

Pre-register next year. You got to bypass the long registration line if you were pre-registered.

But, seriously, GSSF needs to bring out another person to the Richmond match. We had 400+ entries last year, and 500+ this year. Far too much for one guy to handle all the walk-ups.

I heard Cindy had to leave early to take care of a family emergency so that was probably the reason they were short handed. Maybe next time one or more of the more experienced GSSF'ers can jump in when they see this? At least help pass out the reg forms and help the newbies prepare?

The very nice lady that normally runs the the registration Line had to fly home on Friday due to a death in the family.
They are normally very good with getting shooters registered.
Somethings are just out of GSSF's control.

I had an email from Mark Ramsey (the GSSF Rangemaster). He said now that Richmond is over the 500+ mark, they'll have two computers next year to process walk up registrations.

I forgot to pre-register and paid the price Saturday, but that was on me.
