    I was trying to talk my friend into going to a GSSF shoot this year. ( he owns no glocks) I was planning on letting him borrow a G21 or another friend was going to offer up his G31. The question he had was , why doesn't other gun mfgs follow GlockUSA and offer GSSF shoots? ( sig, H&K, etc.....)

    btw: He is a H&k shooter and shoots darn well.

    The second question that came up in our discussion isn't their any GSSF matches outside of USA liek maybe the Americas or Canada?

    GSSF is a USA thing right now, with 27 matches scheduled in the continental USA.

    Springfield is having a match for just their polymer pistols this month in CA. If it is a success, they may just continue it. Can't answer for S&W, Sig, H&K or Baretta.

    Because the same 5-10 people would show up at every match for the other guns.

    One thing that might make GSSF more attractive for first time USA shooters is like a "rent to shoot " option. A shooter that's a cross-over to the glock can pick a certain caliber and model and shoot at the GSSF match.


    {Because the same 5-10 people would show up at every match for the other guns.]

    I bet Canada would have more than 5 to 10 person in any of the big city that would show up at a match hosted at sponser range.(IMHO) Mexico would be a little bit different.

    GSSF Matches have usually about 300 shooters except for Conyers which sports in the neighborhood of 550-600. The number of GSSF shooters at each match just keeps growing.
