The GLOCK Shooting Sports Foundation (GSSF) has announced two upcoming matches. If you have a GLOCK and want to begin competing with your handgun – this is a perfect match for you. You can shoot from the low ready position at these matches and do not have to draw from a holster. This is great for beginners. Don’t know what a GSSF match is all about? Check our previous post about the differences in competitive handgun competitions.
If there is a match close to you – get out to the range and compete and don’t forget to let Carducci Tactical know how you did at the handgun competition. Don’t forget GLOCK awards guns and random cash prizes at these matches. Who couldn’t use a free GLOCK or some cold, hard cash? You could win a GLOCK just for showing up, competing, and having fun! What could be a better day at the range? Here’s the latest information about the GSSF upcoming matches:
GSSF has two great matches coming up for you in the southeast the next two weekends!
