GSSF Indoor League Series – Match 2 @ Nebraska Game and Parks Outdoor Education Center
Nov 19 @ 1:00 pm – 7:00 pm

Registration for the Outdoor Education Center?s GSSF Indoor League Series – Match 2 on November 19, 2019. Our last match will be on December 17th. Competitors must shoot in two out of the three available matches to be eligible for prizes.

Competitors may shoot up to 3 divisions – Stock, Unlimited, and Pocket. For division descriptions, see below. First entry per date is $15, second is $10, and third is $5.

This match will follow GSSF?s original course of fire. For target, distance, rounds, and timing specifications, see PDF under ?Extra Details? at left.

All competitors in the GSSF Indoor League Series must be GSSF Members and compete using Glocks that conform to Stock, Unlimited, and/or Pocket division rules. Memberships may be applied for or renewed on the day of the match.

Check in starts at 7:30 am. Competitors will be squadded according to arrival times. First squad will begin competition at 8 am. Last check in is 11:30 am.

A Glock pistol will be awarded in a random prize drawing after completion of all three matches. Each participant who attends two or more matches is allotted a chance to win the pistol. Competitors who shoot multiple runs may have their name entered once for each completed run.

For each division ONLY the first course of fire will be placed in the rankings and ONLY the first course of fire will be eligible for the 500 or the 250 (Pocket GLOCK) Club ranking.

For division awards, the GSSF League uses the ?Lewis? prize allocation system to distribute awards as equitably as possible.

During a League competition, where there will be more than one match, the scores are totaled and ?averaged? at the end of the 3-match series. If a shooter shoots in only 2 of the 3 matches, their scores are totaled and divided by 2. If they shoot in all 3 matches, their highest 2 scores are totaled and divided by 2.

The result is one final score for each shooter, which is then listed in the overall order in which they finished from highest to lowest. The overall list is then divided into thirds (i.e., the top one-third is ?A? class, the second one-third is ?B? class, and the third one-third is ?C? class). Plaques will be awarded to the top competitor of each class for the Stock division.

First place plaques will be awarded for Unlimited and Pocket divisions, and special recognition categories Woman, Senior (55+), and Junior (<18) in the Stock division. Other prizes awarded by drawing include knives, t-shirts, and caps. DIVISIONS Participants may shoot more than one pistol at each event. The course of fire may be shot more than once per pistol (additional fees apply). Competitors may shoot an official entry in all of the divisions. Any additional entries per a division will count for additional entries of the random drawing, but not for the official results. Stock GLOCK Firearms are considered to be ?Stock? if all firearm components are or ever have been available from GLOCK, Inc. Additional allowable modifications are specified below: - ?Hogue-Grip? type sleeves, ?A-Grip? panels, ?skateboard tape? or other grip-enhancing materials that do not materially alter the function of the stock firearm - Slide and barrel stripping and/or refinishing - Pearce Grip, Inc. grip extenders only on subcompact and slim-line models - Aftermarket replacement non-metallic base plates on magazines - Post and notch sights (?partridge? sights) excluding any sight requiring slide modifications. Please note that fiber-optic and express sights are approved. Any combination of GLOCK produced firearm parts that do not, in the sole opinion of the Range Master, result in a significant competitive advantage in the stock division are safe to utilize. Unlimited - Does not qualify for the special recognition patches - ?500 or 250 Club? The following modifications will necessitate placement of the firearm in the Unlimited Class: - Any non-post and notch sights including, but not limited to, ?Ghost Ring? or laser, electronic and optical sights. - Wrap-around ?grip sleeves? on magazines - Aftermarket component parts and barrels - Recoil spring guide/recoil reducer assemblies - Aftermarket extended slide stop levers - Firing pins (modified/aftermarket) - Connectors (modified/aftermarket) - Metallic magazine well ?funnels? or ?slugs? - Lights or other barrel weights - Any modification deemed by the Range Master to create an unfair competitive advantage Pocket GLOCK (Stock) - G42 - G43
