First GSSF Shoot

Today was the hubbies first Glock shooting competition. He's been looking forward to it for the last couple weeks. Yesterday we spent the morning at the range so he could practice on his shooting time. It definitely paid off because he did better today then he though he would. The first two stations you just shot at cardboard targets. You get to shoot 3 full magazines loaded with 11 rounds each, per station. Both stations are timed and your also judged on were you shoot the target. He wasn't going to much for time he as he was for placement on the target but he ended up doing 11 seconds & under on both sets.
I'm such a proud wifey, I love spending any bit of time together that we can. 
The 3rd station was plates, not just your average paper plates though. There was 8 metal plates you had to hit. They didn't break they just fell right back. This was a first for the hubbs and he was a bit nervous about it. But he did great he got all of them down on the first try. Here he got 4 loaded magazines 11 rounds each and only used 8 of those 11. Pretty fancy guy if I do say so. :) 
He had so much fun and couldn't stop talking about it after wards. The next Glock shoot is in October located in Charleston, he's planning on going. I really hope I'm here so I can go with him. To treat himself of a job well done before we left he picked up 2 new magazines for his Glock. He's like a fat kid in a candy store when it comes to shooting and gun stuff. 
We had such a great day, I love getting to see him in his element having such a good time. He's keeps trying to push me over to the dark side to start shooting more but I'm not so sure on that. I guess time will tell and we will see.
