    Currently I am a GSSF solo member, with my renewal coming up in May. Since I have enjoyed it so much, I have considered upgrading to a family plan (for my son and maybe my dad) over the single user. That leads to a few questions in my mind:

    * Will the cost be for a 'new' family application ($90) or a renewal ($70), since I am an existing member?

    * Will that change my GSSF number and shooter/purchase eligibility date? In other words, if I sign up for it now as a Family plan (3 months before my individual plan ends), can I go ahead and start buying new Glocks before the other one expires?

    * Will that allow the newer members to qualify as first-time shooters for drawings?

    * When I list my son's age, will I still get a certificate for him that I can use to buy him a Glock of his own (since he is a minor)?

    These are just a few thoughts popping up in my head. I do realize that the GSSF group would be the ones to go to directly, but I wanted to know if anyone else had gone through this and if so, what did you experience?

    Thanks.

    You forgot the most important question:
    "How many hats will I get?"

    I did the same thing you are considering but I didn't think to ask the question ahead of time. I was 6 months into my individual membership and needed to add my daughter so she can shoot in the Glock match this month. In looking at it I just decided to go family plan and also add my wife. My wife and daughter got their membership package and hats on Sat.

    I look forward to see if anyone can answer your questions.

    Well, my work schedule hasn't been conducive in letting me call GSSF, so I wanted to push this up and see if DannyR or BabyG or anyone else could answer the questions in the meantime....
