What To Expect
What To Expect At a Match
GSSF members are eligible to compete in any GSSF match throughout the country. You may choose to shoot on either Saturday, Sunday or both days (some larger events are open to the public on Friday). Matches consist of three “stages of fire” with both paper and steel targets.
Competitors can usually complete all stages of the match in one day. Registration opens at about 9:00 AM each day and closes at 2:00 PM. Shooting continues until all registered entries have completed their stages or we run out of daylight, whichever happens first. Stage signup books are closed ½ hour after registration closes.
GSSF membership is required of all competitors. You may join GSSF by email, fax, standard mail or at a match. We accept cash, check, money order or credit card (Visa, MasterCard, or Discover).
Members are eligible to purchase firearms through our affiliation with the Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP) and GLOCK firearms may also be available to members at better than normal retail prices through GLOCK’s Discount Pistol Purchase Program. GSSF members are also eligible to attend the GLOCK Armorer, Advanced Armorer, Operator, Brilliance in the Basics and Low Profile Carry classes through GLOCK Training.
