    Can anybody advise if the newest match award list includes the G44 yet?
    Thank you.

    This is just a guess based on what Glock has done in the recent past. I don't think you will see the G44 on the Award Certificate until 2021. This is the 2020 Certificate. GSSF 2020 Certificate.jpg

    Thank you sir. That's what I was looking for. Maybe it's available as a write-in.:D

    Current practice is not to allow write ins. Evidently got out of hand and was discontinued. At least this was policy last time I checked.

    That’s an old 2020 cert. The one I just got Wednesday does not have Gen 4 9mm’s on it.

    Yep, still don't see the 44. Oh well, I guess I'll just have to break down and buy one so I can shoot the rimfire class. Maybe sell the incoming cert to fund the madness.

    A free Glock just like Freedom, ain't really free. I spent thousands of dollars trying to win a free pistol that I could have bought for less than $600. With a little luck instead of skill, you might win one. Randoms have been my friend more times than skill.

    I have had to share with friends (who thought that I was making tons of money off of my "free" guns) that I could buy a gun outright for the cost of a weekend match. Don't do it for the free guns. IN IT FOR THE FELLOWSHIP AND TIME WITH GREAT FRIENDS!!! Hope to be able to continue for quite some time to come.

    I've spent those same thousands just for bragging rights matches. So this GSSF stuff is WAY better. Math wise, it looks like I'd need to win a pistol each match to break even. Then if you REALLY do the math correctly and ACCOUNT for PRACTICE ammo then well, it's always a losing calculation.

    Agree. I enjoy the matches a lot. Between ammo, meals hotel gas, I figure I spend about the price of a new pistol to attend a match.
    I know some shooters who quickly as amateurs won the 3 gun limit, then stopped going as they felt they could not compete in master to win a gun. If that is the only goal then yes the point is missed.
    I was lucky enough to win a gun as a master prize once so far, having been a master for about 10 years now.

    Awesome! Last time I won anything, I had to wait 6 months to get it directly from Glock!
