    The question was asked earlier this week if a 10 year old boy could shoot GSSF, and the answer was basically yes, provided the youth was accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. There is a little more to it. In New York State it would be illegal due to their strange laws. Elsewhere, the GSSF MD must first ascertain that the youth in question can safely handle a Glock before permitting that youth to participate in the match.

    I encourage youth shooters, and GSSF is certainly a family event, but remember our fight song, "Safety First."
