    What are the benfits of becoming a member of GSSF? Thinking about joining. There is a event coming around in a few months.

    DannyR,

    With both of us being in Virginia, I was wondering how many GSSF matches you shot in each year? I'm a new G17 owner and looking forward to Richmond in April.

    Used to be a nice GSSF hat, have you seen the one they send out now? ;Q (somebody got their budget cut big time!)

    But seriously one of the other major benefits that hasn't been listed yet.... There is a Glock Armorer at each match, and they will go through your pistol thoroughly and replace any parts that need to be replaced for free. Had all of my older magazine rebuilt for free last year. (Springs, followers, base plates, etc...)That alone is worth the $25 membership fee.

    Add to all the above plus the chance to meet many new friends, have fun competing in a great sport that is designed so that all levels of shooters can have a great time and have a chance to win a brand new Glock of their choice; it just doesn't get any better than this.

    Heck for $250 you can sign up for a Life Membership and never have to worry about annual dues ever again. ;c ;c ;c

    - sharing of expertise, techniques, loads & other critical information (well, for those who use more than the primer in their reloads) ;f

    - a great match format for shooters who don't want the pressure cooker atmosphere of other type competitions.

    - any competitive shooting seems to improve overall shooting skills and practice methods.

    - at any match, the on-duty armorer will happily go thru any Glock you have completely, rebuild mags, replace springs, answer questions.

    - you have more chance, within a division, to win something than with any other format that I'm aware of, cash or gun.

    Does GSSF allow the use of reloads at the matches?

    Philkrider, GSSF does allow the use of reloads at the matches. The only difference is if you have an ammunition related problem, it is on you, IE no reshoot. If you are using factory ammo (not WOLF!) and you have a problem, you may get a reshoot after the armourer checks your gun for other problems or modifications.

    Interesting -
    This despite the warning in the Glock manual about reloads...

    Dare I ask - do they allow LEAD bullets?

    The GSSF 10th Anniversary pistols were a limited production run of 1,000 pistols. I doubt that any are left.

    I have a friend that shoots lead reloads out of his G17 at GSSF matches. I do not and would not.

    The Best things about GSSF :
    • Get to shoot
    • Get to meet and make new friends
    • Get to shoot
    • Get to travel to different matches( if able )
    • Get to shoot
    • Might be able to win that new Glock you want, then use the money you've been saving, to buy more ammo
    • Did I mention, you get to shoot
    ;f ;f


    Waiting for April to get here, so I can go to the Anderson, SC match!

    For those workaholics,those that are tired of the adversarial nature of most other sporting events, for those that are looking for a family
    event and or individuals that seek social interaction, those that do want to test themselves, for those that want to mentor and help others , for those that are looking for a netwoork of support in sport and Life.....I would suggest these might be things to consider.;f
