    I joined the GSSF on December 28,2009. The GSSF sent my certificate about the first of January. It said that it was a 2007-2009 certificate. I called OMB guns today and they said that they can not take a 2007-2009 certificate as it is expired. I told the lady that the certificate has not been used and that was what the GSSF sent me. She told me to get a 2010 certificate then I can buy a gun from them. What gives with this? I can not believe that the GSSF would send me a certificate that I could only use for three days. Will the GSSF replace the certificate? I'm guessing that they will not even talk to me about it.

    Get another Certificate I guess. If it says 09 its expired since it is now 2010.

    I dunno

    I hope this isn't true, I was planning on heading to my local LEO dealer to pick up a G35 with my cert that I just received about a week ago. Just got it out to look and it says 2007/2009 as well...

    i had the same issue. i emailed Donna at GSSF to request a new certificate. she told me that the 07/09 ceretificate is the current one and should be accepted. she said that this happens often with dealers. guess we should inform them to contact Glock for clarification.

    I've got a 2007/2008 cert that I never got around to using. When I emailed GSSF about it in late 2008, asking if I needed to hurry up and use it or request a new one, I was told the certs don't expire and I'd be fine with what I had.

    OMG Guns is throwing up obstacles hoping you'll go some place else. They made a deal with GSSF before the split now they are trying to back out.

    Hi :wavey:

    The certificates do not have an expiration date. So you certificate is still good. Sounds like there was just a misunderstanding.

    I am sure the GSSF Certificate I got a week ago said 2007-2009. I used it so I cannot confirm this.

    I've had certificates for guns through the GSSF program and there was no expiration dates on mine.

    You're probably talking about the certificates you can get as prizes at GSSF matches that can be "cashed in" for a Glock. We're talking about the GSSF member discount certificate that GSSF will send you one of per year that allow you to buy a Glock at LEO pricing from dealers that sell at LEO pricing to LEOs. i.e. with this cert, you can get a G17 or similar Glock for about $400 + tax and background check.

    If you have a problem with a dealer please let Donna know by emailing her at gssf@glock.us Email her the name of the dealer and the person that you talked to at the dealer. She can contact them and verify your certificates are still good.

    Thanks DannyR for a good reply. Here lately there seems to be 4 or 5 questions that have been repeatedly asked and answered "Kazillion times". These same questions are beginning to distract from the flow of usefull information. :faint:

    I talked to GSSF and got everything straight. My certificate was good and found another dealer to deal with. It was probably for the best as I am very happy with the customer service from my new dealer. Many thanks to Donna at GSSF.
