The GLOCK Sport Shooting Foundation (GSSF) is a safe, fun, family-oriented organization devoted to the responsible use of GLOCK firearms and encouraging participation in shooting sports. Competitions across the United States provide opportunities for shooters of all skill levels and experience to compete together in simple, but challenging courses of fire.
GLOCK Outdoor matches are held at outdoor ranges across the country. There are seven divisions available to shoot in at each match. Your model of GLOCK pistol and your shooting expertise will determine your eligibility for each division. You may shoot in all divisions for which you are eligible. Number of rounds and magazines needed changes based on the division.
A GSSF Indoor League Match is a series of three matches conducted over a 3-month period, or a time frame of the host ranges’ choosing. Participants must be current GSSF members and compete in two of the three matches to qualify for prizes. Competitors may shoot any GLOCK pistol in the Indoor League Series events, with the exception of the G36.
Firearm Safety Rules
Competitors in both indoor and outdoor matches are expected to follow the four rules of firearm safety:
1) Treat all firearms as if they are loaded.
2) Never point the muzzle at anything you are not willing to destroy.
3) Keep your finger off the trigger until you’re ready to fire.
4) Always be sure of your target and what is beyond it.
In addition to the firearm safety rules, outdoor ranges are always “cold” ranges – a rule that extends to concealed carry permit holders and law enforcement officers. Except under the supervision of a range officer, GLOCK armorer, or in one of the designated safety zones, all firearms will be stored in a suitable bag, GLOCK box or container. When holstered, the firearm’s slide must be locked to the rear. No ammunition is to be handled in safety zones.
