    About how long does it take for membership & registration to turn around? I emailed mine in 2 weeks ago and still no charge on my credit card. Do they send a confirmation email or anything?

    Thanks!

    Allow four weeks for processing. GSSF's small staff is extremely busy.

    Refresh my memory. When one registers on-line, there is
    no confirmation that your registration was made, and the
    credit card payment doesn't happen until a few weeks
    before for the event...Correct?

    Correct.

    GSSF does not send out:
    1. pre-registration confirmations
    2. membership renewal notices

    I always bring along my pre-registration form to the match, just in case, but I've never needed it.

    I actually think the credit card is charged during the week preceding the event.

    Like Danny, I bring a completed copy of the reg form with me - but have never needed it. I think PM720 on the other hand, has never had his preregistration 'take'. I'm pretty sure they just don't like Scott! :rofl:

    I have pre- entered 3 times so far this year and it has worked 1.0 times. :faint: I will be requesting a confirmation for Conyers. :whistling:

    Let me know how that works for you...:faint:


    I'll tell you, I have never had a problem - and yet, it doesn't really matter that much to me. I'm there frequently on Fridays, early on Saturdays for the RO briefing, and usually have time to drop by registration late in the afternoon on Saturday if necessary. No line then, and that's when I generally add my 2 free Divisions from RO Bucks. I make the whole weekend an event - but I don't have a life. :)

    If you would RO, it would solve all your problems. :whistling:

    Yep, I have shot 130 GSSF Outdoor Matches since 1999 and my registration was missing/incorrect exactly one time and they corrected it on the spot without hassle in less than 5 minutes. They do not have the personnel to send out confirmations and I have never requested one and have not reason to.:wavey:

    After the Vegas debacle I requested and received confirmation for Norco. Thinking it was a one in a million deal I didn't bother with Reno and yep, no pre-reg. Reno was fixed in a matter of minutes. Vegas I stood in line for 45 minutes.

    As for sending confirmations, if you are using Outlook it takes about 15 seconds to send a reply stating "received". Even Cindy admited the system needs improvement. :cool:

    Heck, even an autoreply that your email was received would be cool. I got an email from GSSF yesterday advertising the Missoula, MT match, so they must have recd my forms and are working on it.
    Thanks guys, looking forward to my first match in Missoula.

    I want to get involved in the GSSF but where should I look to find all the shooting standards and best way to practice for the events. I am looking in the forums if someone has a link they can refer me to.
    thanks

    Look at www.gssfonline.com for all kinds of info and look for the "The Glock Report" link at the bottom of that homepage for the rules. A membership app is also there. Join for 2 years or more to get an immediate pistol coupon with your membership package.

    There are one gazillion threads here on practice for GSSF events AND the stickies at the top of the GSSF Forum page.

    There is no shortage on recommendations and opinions around here. :)

    ETA: Your post in another thread implies that you are already a member of GSSF.
