Default I won a pistol at my last match

As the title says, I finally won a pistol at my last match. I shot a personal best so needless to say I'm pretty stoked. I've requested a Glock G40 MOS 10mm. It will make a great gun to carry while in the woods. Now to keep improving to catch up to my nephew, he came in 3rd at Nationals, little booger. But I did beat him when he stepped up to the big boy's club. LOL

Before anyone says I should get this or that, it was a GSSF match and I shoot Glocks exclusively.

Now to get back to the reloading bench.

Very well done! I had a Glock 10mm, but sold it. It's got balls in pistol size!

I'm envious, I've wanted a Glock 40 since they announced it. A local dealer said that the G40 MOS was not eligible for the blue label program. Last week I had my local dealer check and they said none of there distributors had one. There is a few on Gunbroker but the "in my hands price" is about $100 bucks over list.
I've been shooting 10mm's since the late 80s with a Delta Elite and a G20, love the round.
What are you going to use for an optic?

The G40 is eligible for the Blue label program. Price is $571 down here, retail is $700. Right now I don't have any plans for an optic but that could change. For the time being I will use the same competition sights that are on my G34 and the same Zev trigger setup.

I have been out of competitive shooting for a long time. Is this metal plates or paper targets?

Both, so speed and accuracy count.
