I'm new to GSSF and looking to participate in two events for 2010. My 13 year old son has expressed interest in getting involved too. The rules indicate youth participation, however, I have a couple of questions... 1) Is there a minimum age to be a member of GSSF and compete in the GSSF events? 2) How does the member Purchase Certificate work for people under the age for legal handgun purchase? My desire is to secure a Glock 17C for my son for use in GSSF competition. Is it possible for the Purchase Certificate to be used by a Parent so a Glock 17C could be purchased? Thanks for any help on the matter.
