    If you sign up for a GSSF match and Glock hasn't returned your guns for the competition due to the recall, can you enter with some other manufacturer's guns?

    no





    2 options

    glock will hold your entry fee and apply it to some future match

    or you beg and plead with someone here on glocktalk to let you borrow one of their guns

    Third option is to ask the Glock reps at the match. They generally bring models for demonstration purposes. Chris and Scott always bring at least one for handling and safety procedure demonstations for new shooters and the RO class.

    ...Glock hasn't returned your guns for the competition due to the recall...

    I'd say he has more than 1...and they're in a big pile of recalled (or whatever Glock's calling it) guns in Smyrna.

    I have three...my 23 and 17 have been lost in the void in Smyrna.

    The last estimate from Glock was "no later than December 6 and hopefully before Christmas." If I understand the statement, they have no earthly idea of when my GlockS will be returning.

    My third is a 27, and I would prefer to try my first GSSF shoot with a larger frame pistol.

    SLewis,

    Don't start to worry until after that time. The JAX mach is not until mid-January and the Orlando match is late February. As others have suggested, finding a loaner at the match is no problem. There are more important things in life to worry about--the economy, war, terrorists, etc..

    Slewis, I'll keep an eye out but I am almost certain that I don't have your two Glocks.;f Now if they are in the garage, Lord help us. That place is mess!

    I bet Santa is going to be very good to you this year.;)

    Have a great weekend.

    IF you don't have your G17 back by the Jacksonville match, I have a spare you can use! Let Me Know before Friday Jan 17th so I can pack it!;)

    The short version :
    Less than 2 guns in 10,000 had a problem with their frame rails; so GLOCK graciously offered to replace the affected frames with new ones. Problems with GLOCK's are so rare that this kinda threw everybody off.

    For the exhaustive version :
    See in the General Glocking section:
