    So I have been wanting to get into competition shooting and I would be new to it. Well I got this little paper with my new Glock 19 yesterday talking about the GSSF competitions. Has anyone on here done them? And what do you think about them if you have?

    I have attended two matches so far and will be in Griffin this month. It is an awesome experience! We make it a family affair everytime. Lost of fun, armorers there to inspect and repair your Glock for free. Ed's usually has a tent there with great prices on everything. A few vendors, usually good BBQ to buy for lunch, the range officers are very helpful with newbies and there are lots of free random pistol prizes once all the totals are finalized. Basically just go and have loads of fun........but be careful it will become just as addictive as the pistols!

    I have shot both outdoor and indoor GSSF matches, and have enjoyed both. The one thing I like the most about it is most classes are stock Glock only, so it really comes down to the better shooter. Get a two year, that way you get the discount coupons for Glock purchase., you will get one per year, and try a couple of matches. If you don't like it, the discount will save you twice the money that the membership cost so it is a win, win either way. But I know you will enjoy it

    I too will be in Griffin later this month. It will be my second match and can say it is a great experience! You learn a lot and get tons of practice. The free armorer on site is a great addition that will bring your Glock up to spec. My friend that went with me last time got his gen 2 practically refurbished internally. I highly recommend. It is one of the least expensive ways to compete as far as I know. And that is because Glock does it to give back to their customers instead of for profit.

  7. I'm interested in GSSF too, and have also never shot competitive. I live in the Laurens County area of SC and was wondering if there was anything close. Thanks, jfirecops.

    GSSF is a good place to start if you want to try competitive shooting because all you need is a stock Glock and 100-150 rounds of ammo. It does save time if you have 4 spare mags. Glock M and 5 to Glock stages will use 3 mags each, no more than 10 rounds per, and Glock the Plates will need 4 mags. For this I have 10 mags so I don't have to reload at a comp.

    Went to my second GSSF indoor match this past Saturday. Great way to meet new friends and learn new tricks. I had so much fun!
