Tina and I have actually shot GSSF Matches in the past. I wish there were more of them as these matches are a blast for shooters of all levels and reason enough to own one of Gaston Glock’s fine pistols.

The GSSF puts on competitive matches to encourage people to get involved in shooting sports while promoting the safe, responsible use of firearms.

Besides doing dry-fire practice, one of the best ways to improve your shooting skills is by participating in competitive shooting. The thing is, when most people hear the words “competitive shooting,” they think of an intimidating environment where you need fancy shooting gear that costs thousands of dollars. Or, they think about a bunch of world-class shooters who don’t want the “new guy” around.
The good news is that this isn’t true at all, thanks especially to the GLOCK Sport Shooting Foundation (GSSF). Founded in 1991, the GSSF puts on competitive matches to encourage people to get involved in shooting sports while promoting the safe, responsible use of firearms. Best of all, anyone can join the GSSF. It only costs $35 for a one-year membership, $60 for two years, $80 for three years, $125 for five years, and a lifetime GSSF membership is available for only $350.
If you haven’t yet had a chance to attend one of the matches, you should try to make it out to one this year. Why? You don’t need any fancy gear. Simply show up with your GLOCK handgun, at least two magazines and 100 rounds of ammo. Some of the matches have loaner pistols that you can use if you don’t have a GLOCK.
