If so, please give us a description of your competition, who it's sanctioned by and what you like best about it.

Just started in bullseye competition with a 22lr. Looking to get a centerfire/45 for 2700 matches. I also got my start with a club under a personal achievement atmosphere. Looking at this blog to share thoughts.

I have been shooting steel challenge matches for the past several yrs. I really have fun. Don't know the difference in all the sanctioning bodies, but Dallas Pistol Club has some called steel challenge and metal mania.(maybe USPSA style) Tigwelder just answered a question about red dots for a Glock 17. I'm looking to shoot the Pro-Am in Tulsa with a buddy this July. Any advice would be great.

I just shot my first 900. As with anything new, I was first distracted trying to make sure I everything right, no errors, keeping every thing safe, and making sure I got off all my shots. The first two strings were horible, but as I settled down, I improved. A 679 for my first competition I was satisfied with considering the initial low strings and no practice the past week due to the eastern snow storms we had. I just signed up for my second competition in two weeks, looking to improve. I am addicted and cannot wait until spring for 2700 matches. I did need to figure out my equipment? Any suggestions for centerfire and 45s.

I just shot in my first GSSF meet (amateur/civilian category) with my Glock 26 and had a wonderful experience! This was my first competition and my first time ever shooting outdoors! Whereby I was pretty accurate in my shooting, I was very methodical and slower than most. I still managed, however, to rank decently, all factors considered. It was a great experience and I plan on going to another GSSF event this fall! I would encourage all Glockers to do the same. I was a little disappointed to see so very few other women at the event, but learned a lot from the men who were all very friendly, non-patronizing, and very anxious to share their expertise with me.

I shot Combat in LE for many years in the MPCPA.

It takes tons of practice and an unlimited supply of ammo to compete against the best in a State-wide competition.
My Agency was my sponsor, otherwise I never could have afforded the ammo, etc.
