WHAT IS GSSF?
The Glock Sport Shooting Foundation (GSSF) is a competition exclusively for GLOCK pistols. The matches are open to everyone including men, women, senior citizens, the challenged, and children. If you have a technical question, or would like your Glock inspected, a factory certified Armorer will be available onsite.
READY TO IMPROVE YOUR SHOOTING SKILLS?
Competitive shooting is a great way to develop your skills. Team GLOCK recommends GSSF for new competitors because it offers a family oriented, positive atmosphere that is welcoming to shooters of all ages and skill levels. Since 1991, GSSF has introduced many shooters to competitive shooting and offers a variety of levels and categories for competition. It's a great way to enhance important skills like safe firearm handling, transitions between targets, and accuracy.
I'M NEW, WILL I BE ABLE TO HIT THE TARGET?
