    My tip would be to get into reloading now. I was shooting matches with Grumpy back when $80 would buy you a CASE of Blazer Brass and we had enough change to hit the Sonic down the street from Academy on the way home.

    And @Gunbuffer was still a kid! Yep! I am THAT old!

    Today would have been a decent day for the match, but because of where we shoot it was cancelled. We hold the match at the far end of the 200 meter range and it doesn’t take much to get soggy and muddy and they want to prevent ruts and cars getting stuck.

    The monthly pistol match at TCGC is usually three stages unless there’s a low shooter turnout and then they cut it down as needed. You sign in at the Stat house and pay your match fees. There’s a discount if you help setup and tear down after the match.

    Due to the COVID stuff, the matches aren’t open to the general public like before. You can make arrangements to be escorted in by a member which isn’t difficult. Masks aren’t required, but no one will care if you choose to wear one.

    Before the match starts there’ll be a walk-through of the stages and a pre-match briefing. This is normally when they ask if there are any new shooters and explain the rules and procedures more in-depth. I think you’ll find more than a few people willing to walk you through each stage.

    After the walk-through, the group will be divided into three groups. One group for each stage.

    When you get the firing line there will be an R/O with a timer. They will ask you if you understand the course of fire and if there are any questions.
